You seem to not realize that we all felt this would be a full episode and not some glorified preview. I've followed this manga for almost four years and have been waiting for this anime. And what do I get. A big epic FUCK YOU!
Sure, my opinion of the manga is that I love and worship it. But just because I love the manga doesn't mean I'm going on my hands and knees and sucking the anime preview's dicky.
This was a mediocre, half assed sizzle reel to a potentially disastrous anime series.
And yes Deus looked fucking awful. He's supposed to be a God in this series and he looks like shit.
Also take in the fact that most of the people had come to watch the OVA to see Yuno Gasai, who is the heart and soul of this series, go yandere. And we didn't get that. We got Uryuu go crazy for a few seconds. That's cool and all. But it's not Yuno being all yandere for Yuki.
The only good to come out of that OVA was the end song.
The more I watch this, the more I hate it.
Watching this 9 minute preview was like watching someone put a torch and setting fire to all the memories I have and love about the manga.
Also we have a right to criticize the animation, like we have the ability to criticize the opinions of others. But that's just it, they're opinions. Nothing to rage about.
I did like Yuno's voice and her scenes. And if the anime comes. I will watch it because I believe there's still some hope.
I agree that Mirai Nikki is carried by Yuno. Heck Yuno is my favorite anime character. I'd be the first to say that the OVA didn't have enough yandere and that is a disappointment. That said I don't think what I saw was bad because if they fleshed out the story and stayed faithful (they seem to be doing this) it would be good. The entire feel was correct. It had the ominous feel that the manga has and it would make into a good series if they ran with it. The OVA was not bad at all and it's only going to get better.

Hmm, personally I liked it quite a bit. I mean, I totally loved Yuno's voice. She's supposed to be the "school idol", someone you would never expect to be an ax weilding psychopath and she fits that part. I really liked her.
I actually thought the CG wasn't too bad either. It did what it was supposed to do.
Either way, I thought it was pretty good, right around what I would have expected. Wanted to see more of the 9th though, her role was pretty minimal.

...Well that just kinda made me sad. I waited forever for a trailer, sweet.
ED song kicks ass at least. And Deus made me think of the really unsettling CGI in Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Well, if the intention was to promote the manga, it worked for me. A very interesting plot. I'm kinda disappointed, but they never promised to animate the whole series anyway... you know what? I'll just erase this from memory and read the manga (as soon as I get some free time).

The reason they made this was to see if it would work as an anime. As far as I see this was a success. They even called it a Pilot implying this.

....that was more like a really long trailer.......They fit the entire first volume of the manga into 9 mins & got it all in the wrong order. It takes skills to mess up an amazing manga like that :)
Hopefully this is just a pilot and they'll make a proper anime or OVA series, coz i like the animation - except for deus & strangely i like yuki's girly voice :)

I agree that it was good as a preview, but not as an OVA. I loved the animation and the sound was great. Yuki and Yuno's voices were okay, but I think they could have been better. Deus' animation was horrid. o_o I didn't bother to listen to the ED song until I found out how much everyone liked it, now I think it's awesome. :D I think they did a fantastic job following the manga though. Although, someone who didn't read the manga probably wouldn't get what was happening.

Quite the disappointment, I liked the story and the characters, I'm sure it would make decent 12 episodes, but this is waaay to short. 3/5 (because of the length).
12 Episodes? Ha! Considering it's on 50 some very good, plot filled chapters that could be split into pretty long episodes, it needs 24 episodes at least. It would not make a good 12 episode series...

Just one word. "Lol." Even Mars of Destruction is better.
I definitely do not understand how you think this. You do realize that this OVA is just a PV (promotional video), right?
EXACTLY! Thank you, someone who finally realises this. I mean, really, it's just to promote the manga. What were people expecting, a series?
For what it was, it was rather good.
