Also known as "Future Diary", this anime follows Yuki, an anti-social boy who spends his lonely times writing in his diary contained in his cell phone, while talking to his imaginary friend (Deus Ex Machina) who also just happens to be the God of Time and Space. Turns out that Deus is more than just a figment of his imagination...basically he is the real deal. Deus enlists Yuki to participate in a battle royale against 11 other players. Their weapons? The ability to read the future using their cell phones. What makes it unique is each player has a different variation of how to read the future, which adds to the mystery and suspense of the anime. The prize? The winner gets to inherit Deus' position as the God of Time and Space.
Enter Gasai Yuno, a female participant of the game who also just happens to be Yuki's classmate and secret crush to a psychopathic level. Nevertheless, they team up to eliminate other players while staying on their toes to stay alive. The anime offers scintillating twists and turns that make this anime that much more delightful to watch. Mirai Nikki spans two seasons of 13 episodes each, plus an extra episode to wrap up the story.
