I found out about this series by total accident by seeing this image on facebook.
The concept Future Diary is exactly what is sounds like a diary that can predict the future the name of the show is translated perfectly into English mirai =future and nikki =diary.
I have the English dubbed version with some glimpses on the subbed version i will mostly talk about the dubbed version with some mentions of the sub.
Some lines from original were changed for better or for worst you decide but I have enjoyed the dubbed version.
And BTW the dub version of the show is more pervy than the sub version this blows my mind usually the sub or the original version is balls to the walls while the dub wimps out like a little pussy.
|Deus Ex Machina|
The battle to the death plot reminds me of...well
Speaking of characters let's talk about them for a bit.
Yuno is a very interesting character most of the anime's surprises revolve around her.
And btw this
|Yuno's Yandere Face|
Remember when I said that the anime is about fighting to the death in order to replace Deus well that is major part of the plot but there more like the evolution of the Yuno/Yuki relationship from stalker and victim to lovers.
Now I know that there are more characters on the show but I wanted to focus on our main cast and plus some of them only appear in the show for few episode for instance 3rd was only in the 1st episode and even fully in it.
The other diary users are sympathetic in their own right except for 1 or 2 and I will talk about him in a moment.
Like i said some of the other users have some sort of a tragic past that led them to this contest some are evil because of something that happened to them while others are stronger a a result of those bad things.
Now let's talk about 11 John Bacchus.
He his the....and I repeat SPOILER ALERT.....the mayor of Sakurami City (the city in witch most of the action takes place ) and his diary is called The Watcher (who watches the watchers much ) it doesn't tell his future but it can spy on other diary users say what you are probably wondering how did he get an advance like that well he is the co-creator of the game of course that he will give himself an advance did i mention that he is a politician.
One more then I will talk about something else
9th or Minene Uryu she is just badass in the show.
Her status in show is all over the place is starts as a villain then hero sort of then villain again then hero again.
BTW she kinda resembles Misato Katsuragi from Evangelion.
Now let's talk about the Diaries since they are one of the most memorable things of the anime.
The diaries seem to reflect the users personalities for instance Yuki's diary takes note of everything surrounding him but it doesn't notes about his reactions or his feelings thus reflecting his nature as a loner ,Yuno's diary take notes of Yuki's every action and his feelings and state since Yuki is the center of her world this makes sense,she barely writes about her.
Now there are some exceptions to the rule about reflecting the personality of the users like 9th for instance she is a terrorist and owns the escape dairy witch doesn't make a lot of sense to me.Wouldn't she write about were to place the explosives for maximum effect or who she'll kill next just saying.
While I am in the audio department let's me compare the dub with the sub for bit.While in the sub the voice sound like actual teenagers they seem kinda silly at times (my opinion) they dub has them sound more serious and the voice work is pretty good.
If you want a funny version of the anime watch the abridged series it's pretty funny but watch the anime otherwise you won't get the jokes.
