Synopsis

Lonely high school student, Yukiteru Amano, spends his days writing a diary on his cellphone, while conversing with his two seemingly imaginary friends Deus Ex Machina, who is the god of time and space, and Murmur, the god’s servant. Revealing himself to be an actual entity, Deus grants Yukiteru a “Random Diary,” which shows highly descriptive entries based on the future and forces him into a bloody battle royale with 11 other holders of similarly powerful future diaries.

With the last person standing designated as the new god of time and space, Yukiteru must find and kill the other 11 in order to survive. He reluctantly teams up with his obsessive stalker Yuno Gasai (who also possesses such a diary), and she takes it upon herself to ensure his safety. But there’s more to the girl than meets the eye, as she might have other plans for her unrequited love…

Review

No matter how hard I tried I could not finish a single episode of this show without saying the word “yandere” in my head. Yuno is a psycho and it gets old quickly. Her transformation from normal student to crazy person is really unnatural as well and isn’t justified in any way at all. It feels like the show is just doing things for the sake of it, instead of carefully planning story and Yuno’s outbursts in ways that make sense.

A lot of people find this show entertaining and while I did at first it quickly became dull to me when the same things happened and it was just fighting at the end of the day. It’s a decent action show for fans of the genre and can be great if you get sucked into it’s world.
