Mirai Nikki OVA is essentially a preview/condensed version of the first episodes of the TV series. In short it was suppose to serve as the introduction to one of the best series of last year.
I say suppose to as it did not do a good job.
What it managed to do in eight minutes was introduce the protagonist Amano Yukiteru, the basis of the story and give us a peek of what was to come.
Normally that would be fine but it lacked what made Mirai Nikki such a big hit. Killing, blood, mystery and the Queen of Yanderes, Yuno.
Yes, as intricate and interesting as the story goes it is incomplete without Yuno. With little about her in this OVA, viewers are either misled, unconvinced or oblivious to Yuno's murderous and insane antics.
It's just not right to start the series believing Yuno as "normal".
Now the OVA did show off the stellar animation and the perfect backdrop of music but being as condensed as it is, it's hard to follow and even confusing.
If you really want a taste of Mirai Nikki just watch the first episode of the series. However if you're like me up at four in the morning with nothing better to do but to watch the OVA of a series you've already seen and loved, then by all means watch this OVA.
