Pssst…… If you’re looking for a bat shit crazy girlfriend, then I’ve got something for you. You could even say that this is the premium queen of Yandere and she’ll say something along the lines of …..
“I’m crazy?? What’s crazy is this world that refuses to let me be with you!”“Yuno Gasai
If that’s not a red flag for you then I don’t know what is lol. And my friend if you’re into that kind of stuff, you should probably go to a doctor and get that shit sorted lol. Mirai Nikki is about a death survival game between twelve candidates aiming to become the next god. You get given a phone, and based on your personality, the phone will give some hints with special conditions attached.
Now when I say Yuno is as crazy as they come, I really mean it. On one side, she’ll a loving and caring girlfriend who takes care of Yuno. But on the other hand, she’s not afraid to kill people who are considered a threat to Yuki. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing but it certainly makes me feel a little uneasy. The story revolves around these two and my god does it make you emotionally drained. You’ve got a 14-year-old boy who I’m not even sure if he likes the girl or is just afraid of getting his ass killed. On top of that, there is very little trust towards his maniac girlfriend which is a little dysfunctional when you NEED to rely on her in order to survive……..
Oddly enough, the anime’s tempo follows Yuno’s psychological state and moves accordingly. In all fairness, Yuno is one of the best characters I’ve ever seen in my life. Her display of loyalty, battle IQ and unconditional love for her boyfriend is refreshing to see in the world of anime. However, her mental stability slips at the end of the anime causing her to do some pretty crazy shit……
Overall the large variety of characters is what really made this anime stand out. You’ve got some pretty basic bitches but a few original characters who stood out for me. Not to mention that Yuki was hiding behind Yuno the whole time kinda didn’t develop into anything worth mentioning. Stop hiding behind your gf bro and fight me! lol
Overall the plot, characters and colourful animation really gave this anime its appeal. With a banger intro and music, there was a lot of hype that sets the tone for a bloody battle royal. I didn’t agree with the majority of deaths but hey, it is what it is lol. I guess it’s a better love story than twilight. Watch it, don’t watch it I don’t care, but one thing is for certain is that you’ll be missing out on one of the greatest animes in history.
