Watashitachi no shiawase na jikan is by far the most touching manga I have ever read. I wasn't too sure if I'd like it when I first started reading it, but in the end, it ended up being my favourite one.
Story (10/10): The thing that I'd like to point out the most is how the story is told. Every sentence is so well written, the dialogs flows with emotion. You are captivated by all these feelings of sadness, hate and anger, just like the characters themselves. The mangaka puts you in a great dilemma. "Was it right to kill him? Is it right to love him?"
The story plays with your mind in such a great way that there isn't any other choice for me then to give the story a 10/10.
Art (8/10): Personally, I like the art. The characters are all well drawn, there's much attention for details and there aren't many things that annoys you. I could prefer thar some of the details would be better drawn like some of the faces and the hair. Sometimes it feels like the mangaka had rushed with the face. But except for that the art is good. 8/10.
Character (10/10): The best part about the characters is the amazing and detailed background story's. You get to know them little by little and in these few 8 chapters there is a lot of developement in both of the main characters. You grow to like them the more you read. Perfect! 10/10.
Enjoyment/Overall (10/10): I enjoyed reading this very much. The dilemma that you are put through, the anger that you feel towards the injustice of the people around and the sadness that you feel for the characters... These are the things that made me fall in love with this manga. I'd like to recommend any type of person to read this manga because it deals with such a great moral. Don't judge a person before you know the whole story behind him. read more

As one can see, the scores and reviews for this anime varies a lot. Some people can't stand it while others, like myself, absolutely love the series.
Story (10): Battle royales aren't anything new. But Mirai Nikki makes this much more interesting by giving all players in the game a future diary which can predict the future and makes it possible for all the players to change their future and put a - DEAD END - flag on another person. This is what makes Mirai Nikki so great. You never know what will happen or what to expect.
That aside, the story revolving the extremly yandere Yuno, the second main character, who we don't know who she is, where she's from or what she's thinking, builds up a lot of suspicion around her and makes the series even more thrilling to watch.
Art (8): The art is great. They've paid much attention to the details. There's a lot of fighting going on in the series and they've managed to make the art for that really good. Form, color, details... everything's great, BUT, the reason why I didn't give it a full 10 is for one reason. The sizes of the characters, weather it's their boobs, height, butt or whatever, they change from episode from episode. That was the only less good thing.
Sound (10): Both openings (Kuusou Mesorogiwi and Dead End) were well done. They chose the music wisley for the openings. I actually felt like I was going psycho myself after hearing Kuusou Mesorogiwi. o_O
After every episode there is an ending too. And the endings kept the exciting, suspicious feeling you've had while watching the episode. Some endings are like a cock block after an episode but that wasn't the fact for Mirai Nikki. Other than that the sound really fits for the anime. The tension builds up even more with the music.
Character (9): All characters were well thought out, well done and had strong personalities. Some were annoying, some were horrifyingly scary, some were hilarious. The strong varieties of personalities, the details and all background stories for every character made them feel alive. You have some kind of hate and love relationship to all of them. Sometimes Yuno was adorable and sometimes her psycho-mode hit and she became frightening. The only character that both I and others were annoyed of was... Yukiteru, the main character. But not only he developed, all of them did. Great job!
Enjoyment/Overall (10): This is a thrilling, frightening, well thought out and pcychologial anime at its best. The story develops into something you never could imagine, making you stand at the tip of your toes all the time. The cliffhangers, the surprises and the revelations. I just have one word to say. Wow. read more

This anime changed me.
Wow. The loss of words. After Story is a truly amazing and touching anime. It is one of a kind and made me cry and laugh as I've never done before to an anime. I didn't have too high expectations of After Story after watching Clannad. Don't misunderstand, Clannad is a great anime, but it also lacked a lot. Everything that was left out in Clannad and everything you didn't think would happen, happened in After Story.
The story revolvs around Tomoya and Nagisa's relationship. The grow up and get serious with their relationship, but life isn't easy. As many other slice of life anime, this one tells the life of two people. Their love, their difficulties, their grief and how they move on after losing a loved one. The difference though, between this and so many other animes is the story telling and the characters.
The pacing is perfect. You grow to like every character and get to know their personalities little by little. Their backgrounds are reveald, mysteries gets their answers and little by little you feel as if you're there with them. You feel their feelings. You share their pain, their happiness, You cry when they cry and laugh alongside with them. THAT is what a slice of life story should be like. It's almost scary, that's how realistic the story gets. Story (10/10) and Character design (9/10)
I have nothing to say about the art and sound. They've picked great music for the cute, fluffy and somewhat sad story. The art is mindblowing together with the cherry trees, the great fields filled with sunflowers and the cute firefly filled nights. The mood is incredibly created through art and sound. Art and Sound (9/10)
You learn not to take anyone for granted. You learn to cherish your loved ones. You learn about the difficulties of life and the importance of being thankful for what you have. Life isn't all happily ever after. After Story swipes you off your feet, touches you and grabs your heart. I strongly recommend everyone to watch Clannad and After Story. This is an amazing anime and I ensure you that you will love it. read more

First of all, the biggest difference between Naruto and Shippuuden is the darker tone, the maturity and the depth in Shippuuden. In Naruto, the whole series was about him wanting to become the Hokage, being clumsy and always working hard to become better than Sasuke.
I loved Naruto's dorkiness but in Shippuuden he becomes serious. The series as well. Now the friendship and loyalty takes over. The mysteries get their answers and new questions take form.
Akatsuki, the moon plan, Madara, war... the thrilling surprises, the horrifying reveals, the cliffhangers... these things are what makes Shippuuden one of the best animes I know. It keeps you on the tip of your toes. That's why the story itself gets a 10/10 from me. Story (10/10)
Of course the art is much better than Naruto. Shippuuden has much more attention for details, the characters' outfits are much more well done, the colouring and effects are so much better done. The landscapes are beautifully drawn. Fighting scenes and emotional scenes are something I've noticed myself are paid much more attention to. The realistic feeling is all over Shippuuden. Great! Art (9/10)
To be honest, I prefer not to notice the sound at all. Sound in movies, series etc shouldn't be noticed. The music is there to strenghten the mood. And since I don't notice the sound and it makes me feel what I'm supposed to feel, I guess the sound is well picked. I really liked the piano pieces in Naruo. Grief and Sorrow is an extraordinary piece. But I especially enjoyed the Pain soundtrack with the choirs and dark pipe organs in Shippuuden. Sound (8/10)
In Naruto and Shippuuden, Kishimoto is very focused in telling all characters stories. All characters have their backgounds and special personality. They all feel like real people that you know and they all grow throughout the series. You follow their changes. And that's whats so great and important about a series that is this long. The character development. (10/10)
So, to justify and defend Shippuuden...
First of all, you have to understand the use of fillers. With an anime this long the writer can't keep up with the pace. For every episode they use about 2-3 chapters of the manga. When the anime has reached too far, they have to buy time for the writer to write more. Or, they could make it like many other animes... Make up another story and end for it. But that wouldn't make anyone happy. Please, stop going on and on about the fillers. They are there for a very good reason.
Naruto goes from a clumsy kid who only wishes to become the Hokage, to a serious, hardworking, loyal friend who doesn't only want to save his friend, but also the whole ninja world from the neverending cycle of hate and despair. I enjoy the series extremely much and I hope that you do too. ^^ read more
