Mirai Nikki: Pairing fanservice with drama/nightmare fuel/excessive violence since 2006.
Amano Kurou. I didn’t think Yukiteru’s dad would get involved, since most writers find it easier to write plots that don’t involve parents, what with most plots involving child endangerment, and the fashionable emotional trauma of parental abandonment and so on.
Look how Amano Rea was so quickly and easily sidelined.
A clue, Sherlock! Kurou must be pertinent to this current arc! ＼(゜ロ゜＼)
Yukiteru, people would be giving an eye to be in your position.
Although maybe he’s already had enough of Minene’s luscious body the last time she slid all over him.
Which is heresy, because you can never have enough of Minene’s luscious body!
Man’s got taste.
Physically weak he may be, Kurou still earns props for shamelessly groping dat Minene body.
How on earth did Yukiteru end up the way he is with parents this awesome? Do remember Rea was flirting with Yukiteru in the taxi waaaay before she got smashed in the head by Yuno.
(There probably is a totally acceptable Freudian/psychological explanation for this, but I’d rather blame Yukiteru for choosing to be a wimp.)
Now class, what can we learn from this?
Yukiteru has always looked like a total pussy. Correction: Yukiteru sees himself to be a total pussy. It’s his imagination/flashback after all.
I consider this matter settled.
Akise once again benefiting from his status as “obligatory genius detective kid”.
You can’t keep this up forever Akise, the magical guidance of the plot is going to leave you in a near-death situation/maimed/gruesomely murdered sooner or later.
Because we all know you’re nowhere as smart as you’re supposed to be ( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ｱﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼
I like how the hospital staff ignore Yuno being out of her ward and crawling through the grass and so forth.
Or rather, I like how the hospital staff has learned to let Yuno do whatever the hell she wants, probably after multiple incidents that involved nurses/medical orderlies being physically destroyed.
Minene fanservice to begin in a moment, but first let’s take at look at my favourite couple,
Isaac and Miria Marco and Ai.
These two are amazing. I loved Ai’s sudden fountain of tears, especially since it looked like she was going to go all Yandere on Marco.
They need a little more flamboyance and naivete, but if Yuno and Minene weren’t contestants, I’m be rooting for these two all the way.
Aaaand Minene fanservice starts now.
Yukiteru’s just using that as a pretext to grab Minene’s shirt.
He’s only now seeing the bounty that lies before him, and the only thing holding him back is the fear of Minene’s retaliation (which would feel so good) or the greater fear of Yuno’s retaliation (that, not so much).
Oh, and dat smirk.
Dat hiragana scrawled on her shirt, emphasising her natural gifts.
Plus the whole “highschool girls in bloomers” fetish angle. And the ponytail. Minene works it good.
Gasai Yuno – ever present, ever deadly, ready to strike at a moment’s notice.
I wish Deus had included SEAL Team 6/Spetsnaz members in the game, if only so to watch Yuno effortlessly curbstomp them.
Endlessly resourceful. The knife is understandable, but where did Yuno find the binoculars in a hospital?
Person of choice to be shipwrecked on an island with. Or maybe not, because Yuno would probably kill me and use my bones to construct a turboprop aircraft or something.
Nishijima just wants to savour the sight. Why else would he hold this conversation in person? I’m on to you too, you lucky bastard.
Ah, Kurou. You’ve just signed your death warrant.
Also, that is some sloppy investigative technique. If you don’t put that stuff back in order you’re going to face some awkward questions from Yukiteru and probably ruin your relationship.
… wait, that’s what you probably wanted after all, you cheeky little bugger. I approve!
I’m starting to wonder if 8th, or Kamado-san, is actually a normal sized person wearing a mascot outfit.
Really, I can’t understand why people aren’t constantly recoiling in terror at the sight of her. Or at least for those who are only seeing her for the first time.
>minimal reaction from Nishijima.
>Nishijima would be screaming and trying to dig his eyes out
Hence 8th must be wearing a mascot outfit. Or Nishijima and that other police dude hang with Nyarlathotep and other outer gods at the local watering hole on a weekly basis.
“These are my friends
See how they glisten
See this one shine
How he smiles in the light
My faithful friend”
I’m thinking that Mirai Nikki could be a bitchin’ musical. In the style of Sweeney Todd, except that Yuno really does kill everyone.
Yuno’s expression: Priceless.
See what I mean? Kowai to Kawaii, just like that.
(TL note: Kowai means scary.)
(TL note 2: Kawaii means kawaii.)
Hold on, shouldn’t Akise be the one spouting the groundless but accurate theories?
Or Yuno’s just looking for a reason to give Kurou’s lungs some fresh air.
Well done dene323 and Zammael, your predictions were right on the money. Assuming that Eleventh is really Eleventh and not Yuno just making up a threat to scare Yukiteru senseless, of course.
I’d award you both cookies but they probably won’t survive the air freight. Feel free to buy a cookie for yourselves on my behalf. ヽ（´ー｀）┌
Yuno playing Kurou like I play a piano – everyone knows it cannot possibly end well.
Yuno’s got her eye on you~ ♪
I am so going to miss Ai and Marco. They’re obviously going to die sooner or later.
So I might as well enjoy the Ai fanservice and the Marco manservice while I can.
Also Ai’s wedding dress totally owns Yuno’s wedding dress. Now all we need is Minene to round out the competition.
I keep expecting Marco to pull a knife or some other weapon from that mighty drillhair of his.
Just end him, Marco! End him!
At that moment Yukiteru’s heart began to shatter; slowly, imperceptibly but surely, the cracks increasing in number and size with each passing second, until all that is left is a void where the faith in his father used to be.
And it was magnificent.
This scene had me in a constant roil of hype and despair.
Hype! Yuno’s laying down the law.
Despair! She missed Ai.
Hype! Yuno missed Ai. More Ai fanservice in the next episode.
Despair! Yuno missed Ai. This arc is going to be dragged until the next episode.
Repeat those last two ad nauseum.
Every scratch, dent, patch of decolouration?
I wouldn’t be surprised if Yuno had memorized its smell, texture, and taste.
That ally of 7th/8th’s, Ta-kun or whatever his name is, is a far more duplicitous and far more combat-pragmatic than Ai or Marco.
Not like it would have killed Yuno, but at least it makes more sense than trying to take her on in close quarters.
Also, Ta-kun isn’t an actual Diary-Holder, so he gets to do whatever he wants without being a direct target? Dude’s living the Mirai Nikki dream.
Until Yuno hunts him down and uses his skin to carpet her floors, that is.
Useless Yukiteru is useless.
Hopefully it won’t matter because neither catch him and Yukiteru finally dies.
