Hey guys what is up welcome back to my blog I’m so thankful that you guys took the time out of your day to read my blog post. Hope you all are safe from the COVID-19. I got one word for this Anime, Beautiful. That’s it, the post is over. I’m kidding but seriously though Future Diary is so dark and yet so beautiful at the same time I just had to talk about it.
So the story is about this guy Amano Yukiteru who’s in middle school and writes everything that happens around him in a diary on his phone. He soon learns that his friends God of Time Deus and his assistant Murmur are actually real and not just a dream. He gets the power to see the future entries in his diary and in turn decide to follow them or not. Each time he does something that’s not according to the diary the future changes and so do the entries. Yuki decides to use the diary to better his life but soon learns that there are 11 other diary keepers besides him who also have the power to see the future entries of their diaries. Yuki soon learns that a girl in his class also has a diary which notes everything that happens to him every 10 minutes. Why? Because she has been stalking him ever since they first talked. That might be scary but that’s how it always is in Future Diary, it’s one thing after the other and each one crazier than the one before. So anyway all the diary keepers are now in a survival game and must kill each other. The last man or woman standing would then be the winner and take the place of Deus as the next God of Time. Yuki decided to team up with Yuno and so the game begins. Sounds interesting right? Well it’s much more than that. There’s a whole other plot underneath this one which is revealed slowly over the course of the Anime.
Each and every episode has its own lessons should you look deep enough to find them and each and every time it looks as if the worst has come the next thing is even crazier and it goes on and on till the end. The anime also shows us great character development. I always love underdog stories and man Yuki was the underdog before he got the diary and at the end of the anime he’s shown to have grown quite a lot. The characters are good and all of them get a good amount of screen time. It’s enough to get you attached and make you cry after they die. Each and every one of the diary holders have their own struggles and their own reasons to become God. Despair is a major driving factor for them. There are non-diary holders as well and they aren’t useless and are actually more lovable, useful and drive the plot forward.
Another main focus is the relationship between Yuki and Yuno. Yuno knows Yuki well it but Yuki had no idea that he was being stalked so it becomes a complicated relationship. Yuki falls in a dilemma when he sees something horrible in Yuno’s house but decides to stay with her regardless. Yuno is shown to have 2 sides one of a more loving and caring side with Yuki and another ruthless and psychotic side when she is in combat. It basically becomes a question of ‘would you fall in love with a Yandere? And would you kill her after falling in love with her?’ if you want the answer to the second question then watch the anime and if you want the answer to the first then Yes. Yuki does fall in love with Yuno later on and their love is shown to actually run much deeper than we originally thought. Their love is a major factor to the underlying plot.
The series doesn’t shy away from murder either, showing us huge explosions, lots of shooting and swordplay as well. There are light moments as well to balance out all the murder and despair and mayhem that is in the series. The series has a good pacing and the light moments mostly consist of comedy or a lovable moment shared between Yuki and Yuno. The violence though sometimes reaches extremes and believe me a LOT of people are killed for the sake of the game and other reasons as well.
All in all the series is pretty good and a must watch. The ending is satisfying, though if you’re looking for something that isn’t romantic this isn’t the anime for you because love is a major theme of the story, it’s what drives the story forward and what caused the events in the anime to happen in the first place. Though it isn’t the kind of cheesy romance you would expect. It’s a sweet and crazy romance that anyone would like. Though I’m not sure it would wise to have that in real life. Anyway if you watch the anime DM me your thoughts and if you want me to watch something specific DM me that too. Oh and start keeping a diary who knows maybe you’ll get a future diary too.
I’m also adding a new rap section because sometimes I like to write lyrics for the characters and I want to share them. These aren’t too good but bear with me:
I’m just a quiet kid sitting on the sidelines,
Sitting all by myself in my blanket’s confines,
Got a future diary and now I’m dodging mines,
My life’s turned around and these are the signs.
My diary tells me everything before time,
It’s a survival game to the top its a climb,
This is all real it’s not even a pastime ,
Gonna win this game to be the God of space time.
Got a chick by my side and she’s ride or die,
And she’s been stalking me since junior high,
Promised her we’ll see the stars in a black sky,
Enemies come to hunt me and she’s my reply.
This games made me commit countless crimes,
I’ve shot at people and hit multiple times,
Turns out I’ve been doing this for two lifetimes,
Doesn’t matter cause I got Yuno for tough times.
So that is it for this post guys hope you got some value from this. Thank you guys for reading to the end hit me up on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn with your thoughts and if you have any ideas which I should write about. Stay safe from the COVID-19. Thank you again and I’ll see you all next week.
