This OVA isn't as bad as people are making out to be. In fact this is less of an OVA and more of a trailer presenting some scenes from the first volume of the manga and showing what it would look like in anime form.

After watching this I can say that it looks fantastic.

From a story perspective this OVA was really confusing. A first timer may understand about the future diary and not a whole lot else. However this OVA were different scenes made to sorta tell a story, not really the whole thing. If an actual anime was made it would be read more

What can I say about what amounts to a 8 minute sizzle reel to an anime adaptation that may or may not happen. Not much. But here we go.


Yuno sounds okay. She's a little high pitched but she'll do

Yuki sounded alright

Uryuu was perfect

Music was decent

ED was kickass


The Length

Yuno barely appearing or doing anything that we've come to love her for

The animation made the characters look chubby

Deus looks terrible in CGI

That's pretty much all I can say. Hopefully a future anime adaptation will be in the future. One that's good and not......this soul shatteringly disappointing.

The Mirai Nikki OVA is a short, eight minute OVA that was bundled with the eleventh volume of the manga on December 9th, 2010. (My birthday – a coincidence? Hahah! …Not the year, of course.) It basically takes a bunch of random scenes from the first volume of the manga and shows how they would look in animation form. I was actually rather pleased with the scenes they depicted, since they were very accurate (almost word-for-word) with the manga.

For those of you who don’t know what Mirai Nikki is, it means “Future Diary” in English. It’s about a boy, Amano Yukiteru, who isn’t very interested read more

I'm going to say what everyone already knows. This looked like an animation and concept test. Much like how marvel studios leaked a concept animation for Deadpool.

So when I watched this particular OVA I was doing it to clean up loose ends with the series. (Like I do with all series).

Watching it right off the back I could tell it was a trailer or a concept test footage.

However if you are wanting to get into the series I would suggest watching this first, (there are spoilers, but they are very mediocre and don't really ruin anything).

It was also a reminder about read more
