Yuki, a disaffected middle school boy has no dreams, or goals in his life, in fact, the only thing he does have is his diary. Writing down everything he observes and documenting every thought, the young boy uses it as an outlet for his imagination. One morning however, he wakes up to find his cell phone filled with diary entries for the next ninety days. Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realise that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn’t just mere coincidence. Now Yuki suddenly finds himself thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners to become the new Lord of Time.

Here a think about the Future Diary (well that’s what I have come to call it anyway): It's incredibly well-made. Everything from the characters to the story and the basic ideas is so well written that this has become one of the best anime series I have ever seen. For even though that I normally do not watch this kind of anime anymore, has it proven that a good anime has a way to reach out to everyone. There are many things I could say about Future Diary. So to prevent me from blabbering on and on, about what I think about the series will I only cover 2 things: The characters, the basic idea of the series. So sit back boys and girls, here come the spoilers. A lot of the characters in Future Diary are made with strong personalities, there are both interesting and unique. Some of them are like an open book, which others are so hard to figure out because their personality changes outthought the story. Take for example Minene Uryuu(A.K.A ninth (A.K.A woman with an eyepatch(A.K.A one of my favorite female characters))). Minene has throughout the story shown so many sides of herself that you doubt about what should think of her. She is shown as an evil terrorist, a funny character, a weak person, a strong person and a person who are on nobody’s side. You never know what she was going to do next, and that’s what makes her such an interesting character. Besides is she also so DAMN entertaining. Another cool character is Yuno Gasai there, if you ask me, are some of the most interesting females in anime. She has so many layers of her psychopathic mind that you’re always wondering, if this is really Yuno Gasai, or if she’s still hiding another side of herself. And now to the basic idea… I freaking love it. The principle that a group of people is brought together to kill each other in a game is not a new principle. However, what make it new it that, all of the members has to die. There are no exceptions and no way that you can cheat. So even though that we see Yuki develop his character throughout the story, with him become more and more like a killer, do we also all know that he, in the end, is forced to kill the one person he loves the most. AND YES YOU GUESSED IT- It’s Yuno. We all know that it’s going to happen, but not HOW, and that’s what makes this series so mysterious and well-written at the same time. shortly said can I say that I like this series, because of the fact that it’s well-made. Everything works together, in a way there make this anime, one hell of an experience to watch. *And BTW if you are watching the whole series, make sure that you are watching everything. That includes the small moments there are shown end of the credits*
