Mirai Nikki 24: “Yuno… you’ve gone insane!”

>stating the obvious
>puny yukiteru brain cannot handle simple truth
>derpface

I didn’t go back to check the dates and stuff, but it seemed like a really, really long time between the deaths of the parents and their eventual discovery by Yukiteru.

But after all that time, the bodies didn’t seem to rot – at least there was no obvious bloating or leakage of decomposed fluids seeping out the body cavities and such, and Yukiteru didn’t notice any foul smell after all that time.

Conclusion: Gasai Yuno was dutifully cleaning her parents’ bodies – and it would not seem too far-fetched to assume that she must have been cleaning at very frequent intervals too, since their clothes don’t seem to be stained by anything obvious like blood or decaying body matter.

Such a filial child! -blows nose into handkerchief, suppresses tears-

Murmur’s wording in the flashback is a little fishy. More on this later.

I think it’s absolutely hilarious that the giant flying transporter ball thing was buried under Yuno’s home.

Yes, it had to be a simple teleportation trick by Murmur, but the thought of Yuno going back in time before the house was built to bury her flying beachball by hand just in case she had to one day summon it and then travel forwards in time to replace Yuno 2.0 really tickles me.

Decisive evidence that Gasai Yuno should have been a Mahou Shoujo in Madoka Magica.

Yes, Akemi Homura went through more than just 2 world resets. Yes, Akemi Homura saw her precious Madoka die over and over again.

But Akemi Homura never had to directly murder Madoka to get her reset.

Gasai Yuno killed Yukiteru the first time without knowing the limitations, but is willing to outright murder Yukiteru a second time just so she can end up in a world where she could possibly murder Yukiteru a third time and so on ad infinitum.

Am I saying that Gasai Yuno is superior to Akemi Homura? Not quite – 2 resets can’t really compare to the mental stress of at least the few dozen resets that Akemi Homura went through – and we can’t compare them until they go through the same trials.

But I am saying that Gasai Yuno deserves a shot against Walpurgis Night. And she may not even need magic powers to beat it. Look on the power of Yandere, ye mortals, and despair!

Yuno’s taken debating lessons from youtube comment threads: “You did the same things I did, so therefore if I’m wrong, you’re wrong! In fact, you’re wronger! Quod erat demonstrandum, bitch!”

But yes Gasai Yuno is insane. She’s not in love with a particular Yukiteru. She’s quite happy to kill Yukiteru 2.0 just so she can move on to Yuki3o (haha I’m so punny).

Does that mean that she’s in love with the idea of Yukiteru? That doesn’t quite right.

It seems like she’s managed to objectify Yukiteru and then fall in love with that objectification. Kind of like how I can fall in love with Micky Dee double cheeseburgers, doesn’t matter which burger I’m given from the serving rack, I’d love each one equally – just that I don’t fall in love with Micky Dee double cheeseburgers.

Look at Yukiteru, all badass and gripping onto sheer rockfaces with his bare hands.

This was amazing.

This summed up Yukiteru’s actions for the past 23 episodes, for his entire life, in like 10 seconds.

Beautiful, dramatic work. I was moved to tears.

wut

Holy crap it’s Minene

-brain does not compute-

That is an excellent question. Must have something to do with Deus’ impregnation of Minene.

Deus in Minene’s body? Minene speaking with the voice of Norio Wakamoto? Asread missed an opportunity at anime divinity, there.

Question! Why does Yuno get god powers if Yukiteru’s still alive? Or have they always been there from the First World? Does Yuno get twice the god powers if she wins the Second World’s game too?

For a moment I was sure that Minene screwed up her powers and teleported Yukiteru into space instead.

I was so looking forward to seeing his blood flashboil and his body swelling up before simply suffocating, but oh well.

Yukiteru is obviously enjoying Minene’s cushioning once again. Reluctant props to him for feeling of the bust of a demigoddess.

Just another one of those screenshots that give anime such a bad reputation.

Since Deus died a day earlier than expected, and since he halved his power for Minene, does that mean that his power and life ticks down in a half-life manner? Constantly dividing by two.

It might explain why that little ruby that’s left of Deus is surviving for so long. Maybe that’s the near infinitesimal limit of Deus’ existence.

Also, if Minene with half of Deus’ power and strength could outwit and withstand Murmur so easily, why the hell couldn’t Deus lay the smackdown on Murmur by himself?

So yes. Murmur. The Murmur that appeared to Yuno Prime seemed startlingly indifferent about the murder.

If what Deus says is true – that means that the Murmur we’ve seen is Murmur Prime, and she’s possibly murdered Murmur 2.0 too. Which wouldn’t be difficult, since Murmur Prime has no constrains on her power.

And if that’s true, that means that the supposed little differences in the events between the First and Second Worlds (which I didn’t notice, but I’ll take the reader observations/comments at face value) could have been due to Murmur Prime subtly interfering or doing the Diary Introductions slightly differently – assuming that the Murmur short segments are canon, of course.

Pregnant Minene. I am sure that this image is relevant to the interests of a certain group of people out there.

So Minene gets a new partial arm to replace the one that got blown off, but she can’t replace the missing eye? Really?

It’s not like we really need the eyepatch as an identifying feature. She’s like the only purple haired, facial-expression-distorting female in the cast.

Why doesn’t Yuno just… grab Yukiteru and stop him from turning into a social outcast and thereby getting in contact with Deus and entering the Survival Game in the first place?

If Yukiteru wasn’t in the Survival Game, there’d be no need to worry about killing him or resurrecting him. It’s so simple I can’t believe Yuno hasn’t thought of it. Or maybe she just wants the psychologically damaged version.

The Gasai household is really effed up. Seriously just wtf.

“Why are you putting your daughter in a cage?”

Oh god it’s Tsubaki before the abuse she looks so innocent ;__;

Freakin piece of filth.

I find it hard to believe that all it takes to program a Future Diary is a supercomputer.

Just… what… my brain cannot stand it.

I mean it’s not inconceivable that Deus provided Eleventh with sufficiently advanced technology that is indistinguishable from magic. But if that was the case, Eleventh would have been capable of mass manufacturing those Apprentice Diaries all on his own.

So I’m a bit confused on how the things were made. Deus makes magic phones that have to be programmed manually? Can’t Deus just… wave his hand and make them complete?

Yes, this annoys me far more than it should.

“We”?

Now you’re saying that Eleventh had a hand in picking the contestants too?

How the hell did he still lose in the end? I mean, there’s hubris, but this is beyond incompetence. Eleventh rigged the competition… with people who could actually beat him. Just… ARGHHGHG

holy freakin shit what

That’s my boy Yukiteru, messing with the past and causality like a Shachō.

Yuno really can’t tell the difference between people from differing timestreams, can she.

Okay, so they’re probably still the same since they had the same experiences up to the moment Yuno grabbed them – which is maybe only 2 years gone, and they were the bad 2 years with the debts and estrangement too – but Yuno really can’t tell people apart, can she.

Kind of like how I can’t really tell Micky Dee cheeseburgers apart unless I ask for extra pickles – assuming that I do. Or that I even eat Micky Dee cheeseburgers in the first place.

I am liking this new Yuno look. Those narrowed, foxy eyes. Rowrrrr.

Minene’s got quite a point. King Moron here is trying to save everyone again and he’s not even the one with the demigod powers. Yuno should keep going back in time and keep grabbing Yukiteru’s parents a minute apart and then dump the whole group on him just to screw with his mind.

So we now know Deus’ gameplan. We also know that it may be really short-sighted, since Yukiteru may not actually inherit Deus’ powers if he’s in a Third World where the Survival Game hasn’t even started, and after stopping Yuno Prime we’ll end up with 2 Yukiterus, 1 vanilla Murmur and Minene, and 1 empowered Murmur and Minene.

Which is probably a greater mess than just having Yuno Prime and Murmur Prime around.

But of course, the biggest question still remains unanswered – what the heck is Murmur Prime’s objective?

        Well was, too busy on the 1st. >P You still haven’t figured out Murmur Prime’s objective?

        Happily, she told Yukiteru 2 he could save everyone by killing everyone, it kinda goes beyond her knowing the already fragile Yukiteru 2 would eventually find out and suffer imensely as a consequence.
        Since the 1st world had only slightly different events and that the issue of the 3rd body is what mostly increased this difference, one may assume that Yukiter Prime’s parents and possibly friends may well have eliminated too, before the 1st world was destroyed. Akise wasn’t there to save Yukiteru Prime, was he?
        Then, as if it wasn’t enough sufferings for Yukiteru 2 knowing he had killed his friends for nothing, within minutes she just have to shows him what Yuno Prime had been trying to hidde.
        Look at how she smiles when she pushes him down the hole or her face when she tells him the truth.
        When her plan have failed, when he doesn’t simply explode from the sheer quantity of inner emoness, she tries to kill him andleading, moves on with Yuno Prime.
        Yuno Prime was kind of mad with grief over the death of Yukiteru Prime so that might explain why she doesn’t try to prevent the game from happening all over again by MuruMuru wasn’t, on the contrary, she have been rather cheerfull in those 24 episodes.
        Before that, Yukiteru Prime poisoned himself after who knows how much psychological sufferings?
        She have been trolling a lot but she seems intend on causing Yukiteru as much psychological suffering as possible, eliminate him then go back in time to do it all over again.
        Maybe it wasnt Yukiteru becoming a whimp and getting into contact with Deus but Murumuru Prime arranging him to be a whimp after discovering him, yes?

          Much as I like the idea of Murmur Prime’s main objective being simply to torture every Yukiteru in existence into insanity, I doubt that’s what’s actually happening.

    since trying to apply some reason or logic to said episode would probably end in some form of brain hemorrhaging injury i shall leave that alone and comment on how lovely Yuno was this episode. I’m beginning to fear that she wont survive the series… :(

      Murmur Prime obviously wished to the power of the Murmur double prime and Murmur that way she can apply an intergral to herself and find her inflection and critical points that way she can calculater her Z factor. Then apply it to the steady state equation. ;)

      • Posted April 3, 2012 at 8:09 am | Permalink

        … I actually followed that up to the Z factor. Shouldn’t that be the Hessian?

          Posted April 3, 2012 at 9:27 am | Permalink

          I plug the z factor into the virial eqn and go from there, I guess you could skip that step and use the hessian if you were just dealing with ideal gases but im not sure how it would apply to real. My understanding of Hessian is limited, and my understanding of Hessian applied to chem is much more limited. :(

    To be fair, there is a difference between the insanity of Yuno then and the insanity of Yuno now. She seems more cold and calculating now that she’s stopped erasing her memories conveniently. Which Yuno do you prefer?

      I should also point out that I don’t think Yuno kept her god powers when she changed worlds. All the magic stuff seems to have been caused by Murumuru.

      And to be honest, I don’t know why I didn’t think of the possibility that Yuno could just cure Yuki’s lameness, preventing Deus from selecting him. And I don’t know if the writer thought of that either. It does sound simple, but I guess if not many people can think of it, then it’s a lost cause.

        I think the “Object” of Yuki is what she wants. She’s pretty much the embodiment of the Stalker-Fan, in her Yandere-ness. She wants what Yuki Prime became: which was the man that won the first Survival Game and loved her. Unmaking Yuki before the game actually eliminates that, rendering all of her work pointless.

        So, while preventing him from being in the Game would be better for Him, it wouldn’t achieve her goal, even for as twisted as its become.

        At least, that’s my take.

      • petitorenji
        Posted April 2, 2012 at 5:17 pm | Permalink

        Which is why she’s retarded. If she truly wanted to be with Yukiteru OUTSIDE the game situation, she would have gone back in time, still with her godly powers, to get rid of Deus and MurMur and all ten other players, prevent the game from ever happening, and just go to school like a normal girl until she meets Yuuki. No one has to ever know that she has godly powers. I don’t know why she has to make everything so complicated. Better yet, she should change her childhood so that she’ll get normal foster parents and won’t have to put up with her CRAZY MAMA sh*t. Then she can be double normal. Excuse my language.

        But of course, we all know that in truth, she gets a kick out of playing that survival game. And seeing everyone suffer. And being all maternal and brooding over the weakling Yukiteru.

          She loses her powers when she goes to another world though (I’m assuming this, considering that Murumuru is the one who’s doing all the work as of now), so there’s no way the two of them can take on Deus and his Murumuru at the same time.

          • Posted April 3, 2012 at 8:16 am | Permalink

            Yuno seems to be the one controlling the magic beach ball in the Third World.

            But it doesn’t make sense either way. Yuno Prime shouldn’t have gained powers from the Second World because Yukiteru 2.0 is still alive. Which possibly means that her powers were carried over from the First World. Which contradicts Murmur’s statement on Yuno giving up her powers to go to the Second World.

            Batten down the hatches, thar be plotholes abound in these parts.

            So the pivotal questions seem to be:

            Did she give up her powers?
            Was she forced to give up her powers?
            Why was she forced to give up her powers? If she’s the god of time and space, doesn’t going back in time technically fall under the “time” sect. of her powers?
            If she still has her powers, why is she doing all of this?
            If she doesn’t have her powers, why is she so darn confident that she’ll win the game (and any of the future games)?
            How can a god be forced to give up her powers?
            Did MurMur force Yuno to give up her powers, so that the former can grab a chance to become god herself?
            If she did, why didn’t Yuno just get rid of that darn little pest?

      • Posted April 3, 2012 at 8:11 am | Permalink

        I prefer the Yuno that actually obsesses over a unique individual. I mean, if I ever wound up with a Yandere, I certainly wouldn’t want her to dump me the instant we get cloning technology or something D;

    Wait a minute, if Future Diaries are programmed with a supercomputer then what the hell was up with Fifth and Sixth’s picture book and scroll? That doesn’t even make any… argh!

    Speaking of Sixth, I wonder if she’s going to have a role in the finale, seeing as otherwise she’s a bit of an odd choice to use spare screentime on. Possible rescue from abuse plot, maybe?

    I’ve got to say, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything go as ridiculously off the rails as this show has. But I’d be telling a lie to claim that I haven’t enjoyed this nonsense and death-filled slice of manic silliness.

      As off the rails this show goes, there’s always some logic behind the insane stuff, so that while it cannot happen in real life, it can happen in the world that Future Diary creates. Not much happens that isn’t foreshadowed in some way, and the plot twists that aren’t foreshadowed well aren’t treated as that shocking. That’s why I enjoy it at any rate.

        Agreed with this entirely. The show is very weird at this point but it has been leading up to the weirdness the whole time with Yuno’s weird personality constantly keeping us loaded with questions.
        Definitely one of the best and most unpredictable series. There are so many ways Yuki could go about this situation and I’m curious as hell as to what he’s gonna do.

    “Does that mean that she’s in love with the idea of Yukiteru? That doesn’t quite right.”

    That’s exactly what I was going for in my previous comment in MN ep 23. Obsession is not love. Yuno doesn’t love Yuuki, she loves the idea of herself acting normal and under control when she’s with him. She just wants to play the game with him ad infinitum.

    What I want to know is… why is she so confident that she’ll win every time? How can she be so sure that she won’t get killed by any of the eleven other players?

    • Posted April 3, 2012 at 8:23 am | Permalink

      Possibly because the other players will probably make the exact same actions if Yuno plays everything out the same way she did in the Second and First Worlds.

      Which would probably explain why Yuno Prime still goes through the Yukiteru abduction even though it was a stupid idea – she probably did the same thing in the First World, and everything ended up fine.

      Although the problem now comes in that Yuno Prime doesn’t know what to do differently so that Yukiteru won’t suggest the dual suicide thing.

    I have never paid attention to those dates and times as well, because it’s pointless. It’s not a serious story, it’s just a show of yandere girl which you can truly enjoy by ignoring all the logic fails.
    :-)
    And… I don’t like to compare it with the manga… For people who don’t read manga and only watch anime, Eleventh programming the future diaries with the HOLON supercomputer is the fact. (even if it’s not, in the manga)
    Maybe those picture book and paper scroll are actually high tech gadget who has microprocessor in it and advanced touch screen in paper form. Hehe.
    Minene obviously the best character here? Grabbing his collar is not enough! Slap him a good one!

    Posted April 3, 2012 at 4:25 am | Permalink

    “Question! Why does Yuno get god powers if Yukiteru’s still alive?”

    I don’t think she has god powers. The giant beach ball, the flying, and the missiles out of thin air were all from Murmur. Yuno just seems like she has god powers because she’s so badass.
    If she had god powers, she would be able to kill all the other diary owners without even being near them. Deus was about to do so to Yuno and Yuki when they missed a bunch of “meetings”. Remember?

    “If Yukiteru wasn’t in the Survival Game, there’d be no need to worry about killing him or resurrecting him. It’s so simple I can’t believe Yuno hasn’t thought of it.”

    Very interesting, but I don’t think that would work. I think Yuno wants Yuki to love her, which happens by them going through the survival game together. If Yuno stops him from entering the survival game, why would Yuki like Yuno? At least, they wouldn’t have that connection of having narrowly escaped death several times together.

    “But of course, the biggest question still remains unanswered – what the heck is Murmur Prime’s objective?”

    I think I know! We’re agreed on the fact that this is World 1 Murmur, right? In World 1, Murmur became the new God’s servant, i.e., Yuno’s servant. But Yuno didn’t care about being God, she just wanted to be with Yuki. So she told Murmur that if she can be with Yuki again, she will give Murmur her god powers. So, Murmur’s goal is to have Yuno win the game. That is why Murmur is favoring Yuno to win, and even helping her win.

    Then they proceeded to go to World 2 and kill their respective Murmur and Yuno, so Murmur has been pretending to be Deus’ servant the whole time, but she’s actually Yuno’s servant.

    Basically, to answer your question, Murmur’s goal is to become God by having Yuno win the survival game and giving Murmur her God powers.

    I’m definitely right about this. :)

    One more comment! I’ve been able to satisfy myself with explanations for everything except just one thing! And this is a pretty important detail I would say.
    I don’t know if this was intended or just overlooked. It does not make sense at all from where I stand.

    The beginning of this episode showed the DATES of the big events in Yuno’s past, including the date she killed herself. “One year ago. August 1st.”
    What? But about 11 minutes into episode 1, Yuno calls Yukiteru “Amano-kun” in the classroom. And, a few seconds earlier, that is shows to be AUGUST 28TH on Yukiteru’s cell phone.
    This means that Yuno 2 was alive on August 28th, which is 27 days after she died.

    Maybe I should not be treating what Yuno calls Yukiteru as the end-all indication as to which Yuno is the one speaking. I guess it makes sense that Yuno would want to act formal at that time, Yukiteru barely even knows Yuno. So, yeah, calling him “Yukki” might be weird for him.

    After that classroom scene, Yuki runs away and runs into Yuno, and wonders how she got there so fast. I guess the explanation is not that it’s another Yuno, but rather that Yuno simply knew where Yukiteru was running to because of her cell phone. I theorized that in episode 1, Yuno 2 was still alive. I guess I’m wrong.

    What’s good about this is that everything we see in episode 1 happens in chronological order, and that includes the scenes at the beginning of the episode. First, Yuno is baffled by her inability to ressurect Yuki. Then, Yuno 2 sits in the room with her dead parents. Yuno 1 comes in and kills her. Then, the rest of the episode happens.

    Okay, now I’m satisfied. I guess I just needed to vent a bit in a comment. If you read this, then, thanks I guess.

    • Posted April 3, 2012 at 9:03 am | Permalink

      Shee-it, you should be blogging instead of me C:

      But I have to insist that Yuno Prime most likely has god powers. She’s wearing the god power rag cape at least, and Murmur isn’t that good (and probably isn’t that nice a familiar) to be imitating/initiating whatever hand movements that Yuno Prime’s doing.

      Also, Yuno Prime would be subverting a predictable series of events if she used her powers. Pretty much up everything but the discovery of Yuno 2.0′s body, Yuno Prime was probably just repeating the same things she did in the First World. Why mess with something that ain’t broken? She won the First World’s game without powers – there’s no reason why she can’t do it again.

      I honestly don’t think Yuno gives a crap about the shared experience, but if I’m not mistaken Yukiteru already sort of liked Yuno – the only thing that ruined it was the sudden yandereness that came about from being in the survival game. I’m pretty sure Yuno could have gotten Yukiteru to like her without having to resort to murder and abduction.

      It seems unlikely that Murmur’s goals are that simple. If she just wanted god powers, she could have taken them from Yuno Prime and sent her off to the Second World. I’m guessing that she wants the god powers and something to rule over – after all, there’s no point being overlord if there’s nothing to lord over.

      But the problem is that the survival game’s winner will probably have more power than Murmur, so maybe Murmur’s been backing Yuno Prime because she knows that the final two will be Yuno Prime and Yukiteru – and then she stabs Yuno Prime in the back and gets Yukiteru to win, because empowered Yukiteru is probably easier to overthrow? And Murmur Prime’s only going along with Yuno Prime into the Third World because the Second World’s beyond saving. That’s what I’m guessing, at any rate.

      With regards to the dates I really didn’t pay any notice to them because I knew my brain would hurt. Dohohohoho.

        “Also, Yuno Prime would be subverting a predictable series of events if she used her powers.”

        You’re right, but I think there is so much she could have done differently if she was God. Right now, she would have no trouble killing Yuki.

        “She’s wearing the god power rag cape at least, and Murmur isn’t that good (and probably isn’t that nice a familiar) to be imitating/initiating whatever hand movements that Yuno Prime’s doing.”

        Please tell me what hand movements you’re talking about! I re-visited the first part of episode 24 and couldn’t find anything. Does it happen later on?

        “I honestly don’t think Yuno gives a crap about the shared experience”

        You may be right about that, as witnessed in the “vacation” in episodes 13 and 14. Hmm.
        Maybe Yukiteru would be in the survival the game regardless of whether Yuno stops him from being a social outcast or not (also, I’m not sure how she could possibly do that without freaking Yuki from the past out).
        Who is to say Deus would not pick Yuki to be in the game if Yuki was more popular?

        “and then [Murmur] stabs Yuno Prime in the back and gets Yukiteru to win, because empowered Yukiteru is probably easier to overthrow?”

        I think we just witnessed Murmur trying to kill Yuki in the causality cathedral, so that cannot be the case. She is definitely sided with Yuno. When Minene came in, she said “Aren’t you favoring Second a little too much?” She’s right.

        “If she just wanted god powers, she could have taken them from Yuno Prime and sent her off to the Second World.”

        This is what bothers me. It’s a good idea. Maybe the agreement between Yuno and Murmur was that Murmur would get Yuno’s god powers only AFTER Yuno achieved her goal of being with Yuki, and Murmur had to help her along the way.
        And Murmur HAS been helping her along the way. In episode 18, we’ve seen Murmur talking to Yuki and telling him that he could save his parents if he wins. Obviously a lie! This was meant to make Yuki trust Yuno more, so that Yuno would have an easier time.

        Theorizing about Mirai Nikki is turning out to be more challenging than anything in my computer science studies I’ve seen so far. :/

          Whoops, no hand movements at all. I stand corrected. It just seemed like she was in complete control of the magic beach ball and the abduction of Third World Mr and Mrs Amano, but the phrasing she uses is ambiguous enough that Murmur could be acting under Yuno’s orders. I guess the rag cape’s only there to show Yuno’s status as final boss.

          Murmur’s trying to kill Yukiteru in the cathedral probably because he now knows too much. If Murmur wants to usurp the eventual winner, the eventual winner can’t see it coming – which means one of the Yukiterus has to kill Yuno and end up emotionally distraught and distracted.

          Actually, I don’t know what Yuno Prime’s up to, either. She has to realize that she will never get to live happily ever after if she needs to kill or be killed in each world she jumps to. Maybe she just wants that awkward first time sex. And she’s willing to go through a Survival Game for each awkward first time sex.

          Theorizing about Mirai Nikki is proving to be too good a distraction from my own studies D;

          Also, Micky Dee cheeseburgers is really one of the worse analogies I’ve come up with in a while ._.

    Sad there are only two episodes left, I am sure plenty of us readers will miss your reviews.

    Have you thought of writing a fanfiction, where all the plotholes are filled?

    I guess Yuno´s parents must have died of dehydration and the house is exceptionally dry and well-isolated (to keep the flies away), otherwise the stench would have been absolutely horrible. Yuno would have had troubles breathing normally and keeping her lunch down just by being in the same room.

    About being teleported directly into space, there would be no suffocation or agony from boiling blood for a baseline human.
    Innards, air in the lungs and the brain would be weighting circa 1 kg per cm cube outward, meaning, a human body and skull is likely to litterally explode.
