Middle school 2nd year, Amano Yukiteru, is a boy who has problem making friends. He thinks of himself as a bystander and will always write down everything he sees in a cell phone diary.

Tormented by solitude, Yukiteru began to imagine things like a friend called Deus Ex Machina who is apparently the Lord of Time & Space. Seeing Yukiteru's miserable state, Deus gives him a new ability. His diary will now record events that will happen in the near future. Yukiteru is then forced to participate in a game whose winner will become Deus' successor.

This manga tells the story of Amano Yukiteru, a social outcast who records everything he sees in his cellphone. Out of desperation, he has generated an imaginary friend to accompany him, Deus Ex Makina, the lord of time and space. Deus, who sympathize with the boy decided to give him the his cellphone's an ability to foresee the records that he will make on the future. Little did Yukiteru know, that comes great power, comes another eleven Diary Holders(people who have the ability to predict the future) who can do the same thing. To Yukiteru's dismay, this is the beginning of a horrific game.

One of the most interesting and best supernatural mangas around right now I'd have to say. It starts with what seems like a high school manga with what seems to be psychological elements but soon turns into a supernatural survival where anyone could be a possible enermy and trust becomes a hinderence.

The plot is great and the art is good but what really get you sucked in is the characters of the 12 diary holders, including the two main characters and the battle scenes between the diary holders. Though these aren't typical battle scenes of swords and the like you usually see, rather these read more

Why did we decide to call it a spoon? Does the breakfast club exist? Is this intro eye catching enough or should I just cut this grandiose intro crap everyone does go back to straight out harassment of the manga?

How on earth does this manga have a fanbase?

This manga is so, so terrible. I do not understand at all the high rating. Is...is this like a troll rating thing? If so, please tell me and restore some of my faith in humanity


but more than likely, and sadly, this doesn't appear to be a troll fanbase. People actually think this...this thing is good for some read more

Okay, now, I know I'll certainly get a lot of people who'll dislike this right now only for the low rating. But holy potatoes, this manga is one of the most overrateds I've ever seen. And with this I hope I can get someone not to waste their time reading the manga Mirai Nikki (or Future Diary, whatever you want to call it).

Now, let's begin the review. Well, first of course I'm going to say what I think about the story, and there's not much to say about it really. It isn't good, it's far from that. The manga had everything to be very good, read more
