So with this we’ve gotten all of the endings of the past season. And it’s pretty weird indeed. At the very least, I’ve got to praise the creators for delivering a solid and climactic ending. This episde was fun, and also had a ton of character development. It was a bit cheesy when Yuno stabbed herself, but heck: she’s crazy, and this episode had far bigger question-marks.

First of all, I’m not sure whether I missed this or not, but the way in which Eleventh changed everyone’s future, was an explanation given of why he knew now that he Mirai Nikki project would fail? There’s also the question of Murmur’s intentions: was it ever revealed what she wanted anyway? I mean, she had captured the Murmur of the world anyway and eventually would have continued to e the assistant of the new God.

The strangest part however, was the sequel hook. I mean, I knew beforehand that Mirai Nikki isn’t going to end here and that some sort of sequel got announced at the end of this episode. However, what the heck did Yukiteru turn into anyway? He couldn’t get over Yuno… for 10000 years? It pretty much sounds like he reverted back to his old self and has been sulking for an eternity.

Still, I enjoyed this episode a lot. This series definitely had its issues, and being spoiled along the way also didn’t help, but it did come together quite nicely.

    Great absurdist trash.

    Will post a review of the series, when I find the time.

    I will focus on the absurdist nature of the show/manga, and the anima-animus relationship between Yukiteru & Yuno.

  2. Dynellen says:

    The anime cut out a little bit of the ending, go check out the last few pages of the manga if you want the whole ending (they only hinted at it with the last few seconds of the anime).

    As for the next project announcement I believe it refers to the Mirai Nikki live action drama that they’re doing. Focus on the word ‘drama’ it’s not a direct live action version of the manga.

  3. Thomas says:

    I think that Murmur ‘1’ during whole anime always served the new ‘Yuno-god’ from World ‘1’. She even trapped Murmur ‘2’ in that sphere adn took her place in World 2.

  4. Skoopman says:

    If you don’t want a real “WTF?!” ending, just go with the anime ending. The manga ending is so weird and cheesy, you might not like it.

  5. F says:

    Ending it just before the last few pages saved the anime’s ending from being too pedestrian, but it still felt pretty weak overall.

    Wouldn’t recommend the anime, but it had it’s moments.

  6. alt says:

    The sad part is that alot of folks who spoil do it because they loved evolving to that point and want everyone else to be there with them. Its directly related to my theory of the weaknesses of our culture. “Why engage in a story or even a lesson if you want to skip directly to the end?”. Thus missing the entire point(s).
    Anyway Yuki is now in my book of “shinji ikari infamy”. I look forward to some point in the future where maybe my opinion will change. The book is thick.

    “First of all, I’m not sure whether I missed this or not, but the way in which Eleventh changed everyone’s future, was an explanation given of why he knew now that he Mirai Nikki project would fail?”

    Well, i haven’t seen this episode but in the manga he is surprised that his diary also shows him the information of a parallel world diary user (world 2 Yukiteru’s diary, the part that says that Yuno killed 11th outside the vault), so since he know he was defeated in another world he decide to stop the future diary project.

  8. michelle says:

    Murmur enjoyed the first world’s survival game so much that she actually plotted with the first world’s winner (Yuno) in order to time leap back into the past and repeat the game.

    As for Eleventh’s actions, his diary was able to spy Yuno’s(1st world) and Yukiteru’s(2nd world) (despite being from different worlds) diaries, stating that he would eventually die during the survival game. To ensure that this doesn’t happen, he cancels out the proposed survival game.

    • Koby says:

      What I don’t get is how come Eleventh from 2nd world wasn’t able to see his fate from the 1st world via the 1st Yuno and end the game in the 2nd world as well? He never seemed to know about Yuno’s original diary.

  9. RABUJOI says:

    Yeah, at the end of the day, Yuno couldn’t stab Yukkii, or vice-versa, so one of them had to stab themselves.

    As for wallowing in angst in a void, that’s just God-Yukkii being God-Yukkii. Ten millenia’s a drop in the bucket, especially when he can return to the world at any point in time he wants. Like the Edo period!

  10. anon says:

    As far as a sequel goes, we may end up getting an OVA of the two side-mangas. They help shed more light on the story by switching the POV from Yukki to someone else. Paradox (which follows Akise’s POV) and Mosaic (which focuses on Minene’s POV) are the two and they’re only one manga volume.

    And in terms of the games I don’t think its possible that we’ll ever get an FF game that is so poor as the FF7 spinoffs, those ruined the original game for me. I didn’t like the glance I got of FF10-2 I think doing followup stories/sequels is a bad idea with final fantasy. Just do a new story with new characters every game and stick to that.

    I think however low final fantasy goes, it at least won’t reach as low as that old cgi movie we got years back or that anime series FF unlimited.

    @Bam, I had a lot to say about it and I figured I would put down my thoughts somewhere.I might put down more game reviews, I got a Suikoden one in the making, but I want to keep it more sporadic and let it at least stay somewhat anime related.

    @Kaiser, the castlevaina cartoon is going to be made by the guys behind adventure time and fairly odd parents…it’s pretty doomed.

    @Aidan: a fair review of FFXIII. I’m a long-time player (unfortunately can no longer use the term ‘fan’ in earnest) of the series and have a few thoughts on th title which I will leave a comment for shortly. Aside from your recent romp, I wonder if XIII has enough going for it to merit a full post on this particular site.

    There was a manga based on one of the 3d castlevanias but its terrible and theres some weird image comics graphic novel that was pretty poor too.

    Now that was unexpected, we’re getting a castlevania animated series I loved castlevania 4, sympathy of the night, castlevania bloodlines, lagacy of darkness and dracula x. This ones going to be based on castlevania 3.

This episode has been a weaker episode than those so far. The opening has gone through a number of changes now that we have reached over the halfway point. Megumi’s part of the opening has been replaced by a shot of her grave, the colourful transition after showing the title is now a series of […]

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 07

I understand that for an anime adaption some character designs need to be simplified in order for an easier time to keep them in proportion in animation. But while the characters who suffer in this episode because of this are indeed minor characters, its really a shame to see them become something unrecognisable. The two […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 06

Well the story continues on from the flashback, showing Miki first joining the club. Right off the bat the episode pushes to answer the question of Megumi’s existence. It’s a answer that was pretty obvious by this point as the foreshadowing was pretty heavy on this particular detail but this episode makes it crystal clear. […]

Gangsta. – 06

When taking into account the show so far, I find that the quiet character moment stand out far more than the over the top fight scenes with knife wielding psychos on rooftops. The dialogue between characters is much more engaging that two characters jumping around like Bleach Soul Reapers. In particular it great seeing Worick […]

Gate: Thus the JSDF Fought There! – 06

Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” is a fairly iconic piece of music in pop culture. So much so that after Apocalypse Now (1979) whenever there is a helicopter assault in any piece of media, it’s practically obligatory to play Ride of the Valkyries. Even just today when finishing Far Cry 3 and had a […]

Gakkou Gurashi! – 05

As these episodes go on it really is something to wonder about the matter of Yuki being a hindrance or a help. I have said previously that she does push the group in the right direction but it is still a case where her mentality is dangerous. The group need to come up with excuses […]

I wonder when it was that a film being childish became a flaw. As a medium grows it takes steps to aim to mature itself and seek a more intellectual level of presenting entertainment.

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.
