Yukiteru Amano is a student who spends his time on his phone writing a diary and talking with Deus Ex Machina (the God of Time and Space) and Murmur, the God’s servant. Deus gives Yuki a special diary, telling something about a game. This new diary strangely tells the future. Deus tells Yuki that he and Murmur aren’t part of his imagination, and that he has to participate at a game with twenty other people, who also have a diary, but tell the future in their own unique way. The rules of this “Diary Game” are: the contestants must try to find and kill all the other contestants before the world ends on Day 90, and only the last one standing can prevent the Apocalypse and become the new God of Time and Space. Yuki is the first diary owner, and Deus tells the other participant that he wants him to win the game. The winner of the game becomes Deus’ new heir. Because of that, in order to survive, Yuki has to team up with his crazy psychopath stalker, Yuno Gasai.
Yukiteru Amano: The the First diary user. Also known as Yuki, he is a 14 year old middle school student who doesn’t talk much and is rather unsocial, because he writes his diary on his cellphone all the time. His diary turns out to be called Random Diary. Unlike the other participants, Yuki doesn’t want to play the game and killing people, he just wants to live peacefully. He is weak, a freaking crybaby and an annoying brat who feigns to love and uses Yuno to survive.
Yuno Gasai: A psychopath girl who is madly in love with Yuki. She is kind, smart and sweet when no one touches him, but if someone does, she is a crazy killer who will chop you into pieces. Yuno is the Second diary and possesses the Yukiteru Diary that will tell Yuki’s future.
Minene Uryuu: The Ninth diary user. She is a badass, crazy unknown terrorist who hates religion because of her parents’ death. She has the Escape Diary which will chart out the best course of actions for her to escape whenever she finds herself in a dangerous situation.
Aru Akise: One of Yuki’s new friends in school, Aru is a genius with incredible investigations skills; in fact, his dream is to become a detective. During the game, he suspects Yuno and tries to discover what she is hiding. He soon finds out (!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!) that he was created by Deus in order to observe Yuki. He receives the Detective Diary from 8th which can make predictions based on the predictions of the other diaries. He is our favorite character in the show ❤
A tragic and romantic anime, that will blow your mind until the end! Yuki is the most annoying anime character of all time, but despite that, the show will amaze you. The soundtrack is wonderful, the animation is decent and the opening really describes the show. Check it out!
