I must say there are quite a lot of contenders in my mind already for the best anime of 2012, there are so many to choose from! "Another", "Guilty Crown", "Fate/Zero", "Shakugan no Shana 3" and now "Mirai Nikki". This is another one of those anime that you cannot stop watching, "Mirai Nikki" is addicting as hell. Having a plot which is based on survival games, you already have a recipe for success, especially if you throw in unique characters and one really sick concept. "Mirai Nikki" will satisfy your thirst for blood, and throughout the entire anime you will constantly remind yourself of how sick and f**ked up it is. But when you look back on it when you're finally finished, you will remember how much of a great thrill ride it is.

I heard yo like some Gasai Yuno in your Gasai Yuno..

So, the songs of "Mirai Nikki" are pretty damn bad ass. Yes, all of them, even the endings, this is MY type of show with MY type of songs. "Kūsō Mesorogiwi" is the first opening song, and well up to date it is one of my favorite Yousei Teikoku songs. It just captures the spirit of the anime and the band itself so damn well, it sounds so dark, intense and in a way, hardcore. The first ending is "Blood teller" by Faylan, and f**k it, I have recently been listening to a lot of Faylan songs, and this is one of them. It has an incredibly bad ass start and rocks off to become an overall intense track.

Yousei Teikoku and Faylan switch places for round 2, with Faylan handling the second opening song, "Dead End". Needless to say it sounds f**king awesome, and ended up surpassing the first opening in my opinion, with a edgier approach to make the song sound more bad ass. "Filament" by Yousei Teikoku was rather good as well, though I still do prefer "Blood teller". Looks like Faylan wins this time.


Yes "Mirai Nikki" is awesome, worthy enough to become one of my recommendations to the general public. Of course, blood, violence and adult content beware, light hearted viewers be advised. Everything about "Mirai Nikki" screams awesomeness, the theme of a survival game combined with a ton of interesting characters and an overall unique plot just drives it to succeed so well. And with such a refined heroine, how can anybody not be entertained (whether you view her positively or negatively is entirely up to the viewer)? "Mirai Nikki" is just too much awesomeness rolled into one package.

BAM! SLASH! Another kill!

Amano Yukiterru is a f**king PUSSY of a kid! He is your regular school kid who is just an overall pussy. He regards himself as a bystander and records everyday life happening around him in his cell phone, a "Diary" of sorts. Every time something happens, he refuses to be part of it and instead just records it in his diary and gets on with his life. He is so socially awkward that he even sees a god of another realm known as Deus in his dreams. He thought everything was fake, until one day Deus gathers 11 other individuals into his imaginary realm and gives them all future diaries, explaining about how they must kill each other to find the last man standing. Yuki is attacked by a serial killer with such a diary, and is saved by an awkward girl, Gasai Yuno, a fellow diary holder. Now the survival game begins!

"Mirai Nikki" is just something everyone will love. Its a different kind of anime, plus, blood and violence will always appeal to the general audience. Still though, if you're not good with blood and stuff you should just skip this, like "Higurashi" and "Another".  Just make sure you don't get dragged into a survival game, look after your cellphones.
