Here's the thing about this show. Although it does somewhat aim to have an intelligent aspect to it, you have to keep in mind that most of it is extremely loosely based realism, as with practically all anime, television shows, hollywood movies, and every other sort of entertainment media. This anime is definitely not even aiming to be realistic; it's just tries to make a few intelligent scenarios based off of fake physics.

But anyways, you said you wanted me to point out something I thought was wrong, but I'll do you 4 better. Firstly you pointed out the fact that the power ranger guy made a future recording saying he's going to die and that it's impossible. But again, this isn't meant to be realistic. For example take the people's cellphone diaries. How is it that they're future self can type into a diary saying that they're already dead? Or how can someone write into a scroll that they're already dead? This (and the kid's picture diary) works off of the same logic. His diary is a tape recorder, and even though it doesn't realistically make sense for a dead man to make voice recordings, without it, the entire idea behind this anime would be impossible. Then you have the point about the protagonist finding the important ball thing. One thing you didn't seem to realize though is that the protagonist never realized the importance of that ball. He only happened to find it by complete chance and decided to use it as a diversion. There's nothing to indicate that he did actually know that it was important to her. Thirdly, @the point about the kid being able to trick them, you have to remember that all diary users are capable of changing the future. So even though Yuki could look at his diary to see what would happen next, the little kid could also look at his diary and change the future that was originally foretold. Then the point about them going back to school without anyone caring about a thing; they've already gone out of their junior high by this point and are just entering high school (they're new school). So of course, it's been a while since that incident (people have moved past it), and chances are most of the students weren't even involved (apart from kousaka). The police didn't question them because the "lead investagators" of the units already knew of their circumstances (through Kurusu). Lastly you can't just say that all students are followed by gossip, especially students who know almost zero people in the entire school. Besides, Kosaka did give away that he caused the school bombing near the beginning of class. The last point I'll criticize is the point of Hinata going through with that elaborate plan and not breaking his phone. She was not part of the game, and her goal of that entire elaborate plan was not so that she could destroy Yuki's phone. She had only done all that because she was trying to get rid of Akise because her father was trying to get out of the game, but Akise's snooping around their residence made her father believe that he was another diary owner trying to kill him. Yuki's involvement in that incident was just to be bait for Akise.

Well, it's pretty obvious that the clown was modelled after the mad hatter, and he knew that doing something like that would get his district the most money. It is pretty logical that he do something like that. On top of this, the clown didn't cause the problem himself- he merely set up the basis for it to be possible. The people in the district caused the problem. Besides, just having that card was by no means an promise of success of any plan. 

On top of this, you have yet to mention how the story fails to make sense. They do not make any contradictions, they don't introduce the black card in the last episodes- they merely introduce a second one.

That doesn't mean the story didn't make any sense. It's just a plot device. There is a difference between not making sense and using plot devices. They happen to be in many shows.

Your review only mentioned that some of the character's actions didn't make sense (background ones and then the bank), not the story itself.
