Learn Japanese with Anime: “Future Diary” (Intermediate Level)

Webmaster Review

84% Brilliant

The title doesn't look interesting, but the story is very interesting because of the unique horror suspense and the story. In particular, the heroine's Yuno's true identity gets accelerating from the latter half of the latter half. Yuno ’s quote “Do n’t let me say. Anyone who could rely on it” was goose bumper. The last is beautifully closed with family love. Yuno's Yandere personality is intense, not cute or character design issues.

The drawing is high and stable, and the angle and sunlight are very good. Made in drama tailoring. The background is realistic and feels high in reality. The dark atmosphere is good overall.

The first OP song is very good, and the ED song is pretty good. It can be highly appreciated that the music is unique. Blood splatter is cute and Yuno stalking is usually scarier. You can also understand that she is synonymous with Yandere.

The OP production and OP songs of the previous period are excellent and the goosebumps are very good. The ED with a hidden line matches the music. Overall, this anime is a masterpiece and can be recommended for all viewers.

2. 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…

3. Intermediate can Learn Japanese with This Anime

Each character speaks differently, but I want you to rest assured that it’s almost realistic. This anime is a drama containing fantasy elements, but there are not many difficult words. However, it will be difficult to find criminal and weapon terms. Heroine Yuno Gasai is unusual in character and behavior, but she speaks normally (her voice is cute but her behavior is awful). Deus Ex Machina is a normal way of speaking, unlike its appearance. He speaks impressed, but not old-fashioned. On the contrary, Mur Mur speaks in a grand word with “xxx じゃ” at the end, unlike his appearance. There are many variations of difficult words, so if you are an advanced Japanese language learner, it will not be bad to try this anime. I also add that it is a very interesting anime.
