Mirai Nikki 26 [END]: “You’re so stupid, Yukkii.”

To heck with Titanic, this here’s the TRUE greatest love story ever told.

(Also note that this being the last episode, Asread has tried to cram resolutions for almost every single character/plot thread, so this post has a total of 72 screencaps. So it is much longer than my already excessively long usual posts. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.)

As always, the little things.

First – Isn’t it impossible to resurrect the dead? That’s why Yuno Prime went off the deep end, isn’t it? Because she could restore the body but not the soul, or the personality, or whatever.

But Murmur easily brings Papa Gasai back just like that; no questions asked, no plotholes generated. Yeah, maybe he was still alive despite being stabbed like an episode ago. Maybe it was only 5 minutes in-universe, but I have my doubts that he managed to cling to life after his guts were forcibly introduced to a dagger.

Second – Paradox? The only way there could be a paradox is if the Worlds interacted on the same timeline. But they don’t – if they did, the first paradox would have already occurred when Yuno Prime returned to kill her past self.

Except that it’s not her past self, but Yuno 2.0. Ergo, the Worlds behave more like parallel timelines, which can only be accessed by jumping back to a point that was before a World divergence. So what I’m trying to say is that Murmur and Yuno Primes should have just cut their losses and jumped back to an earlier point to kill an even Loli-er Yuno (though of course they should have finished Minene off properly first).

Or maybe the Worlds really are on the same timeline, and that Time Jumpers have Time Travel Immunity or something. Look at how much speculation one stray little word can cause.

Ahem. Yes, the little things.

… rather, can’t she wait for another 2 years before killing Loli Yuno?

No, I’m not that silly to suggest that Yuno Prime will find a solution that doesn’t involve murder and bloodshed – but if she exchanges places with Loli Yuno now, she’s going to have to explain the physiological differences.

It’s 2 whole years, and puberty’s probably in full swing. It might be rather difficult for a 15-16 year old Yuno Prime to pass off as a 13-15 year old Loli Yuno.

>sweet innocence and purity
>Yuno Prime doth not comprehend

I think we all get that. If we ever looked back at our past selves, we’d marvel at how full of idealism and hope we used to be.

Then we’d all want to give our younger selves a good punch to the face, a stern lecture on how the world really works, and winning lottery numbers/stock price histories/future technology with much patent value.

Actually, it’s the other way around for me. I can’t believe Yuno was ever that untwisted.

Evidence that awesomeness is inherent in the Gasai Yuno genes. Loli Yuno can halt Yuno Prime in her tracks with nothing more than a few choice words.

I don’t know if it was intentional, but I love the symbolism in this scene. It’s kind of like a twist on the whole light at the end of the tunnel with the oncoming train thing.

… except that Yukiteru’s not really dying, just breaking free of his Purgatory. And that he’s not in a tunnel, and the train wouldn’t be running him over anyway.

I’m not sure where I’m going with this. But hell, I like it. So there.

Yep, I still don’t get the causality thing. And until Esuno Sakae provides more information on how the Mirai Nikki universe works, I don’t think I ever will.

… wut/

So memories can be transferred across timelines now? What is this, Steins;Gate?

Or maybe Nishijima’s desperately trying to hide the fact that he’s hitting on a total stranger, and that he’s got a thing for girls missing one of their eyes and about a third of their right arm.

… I don’t see how the future changed because of random explosions in a school, but I’ll take the non-rape timeline anyday.

… yeah, the plot just lost all its coherency. The universe is just screwing around just to screw with Murmur.

SO AWESOME

KEEP GOING TWELFTH-SAN, YOU FABULOUS VIGILANTE CRIME-FIGHTER YOU (*^3^)/~☆

Dammit Johnny keep your mind out of the gutter ( ´_ゝ`)

“taking care of them” ಠ_ಠೃ

“train them”

IM SORRY I JUST CANT STOP MYSELF

This just further validates my point that 8th really has little connection to the story.

With all the other characters, they did something different in the 3rd World. 8th is just carrying on as usual, it’s obvious that the phone call was a last-minute desperate author’s saving throw to try and make something different happen.

Likewise, because 7th is so affiliated to 8th, they don’t really do much either. Which is actually kind of okay, I guess.

PEACE THROUGH SUPERIOR TECHNOLOGY

Admittedly 11th’s issue with the Diaries isn’t so much the recursive time loop or whatever, it’s probably the fact that he dies.

But still, nice of him to bring it up to Deus instead of trying to manipulate things on his own end.

Also, how is Deus not noticing Murmur Prime’s actions, much less the damage to the causality-whatever?

No offense Deus, but the Survival Game idea was shit, is shit, and is going to be shit.

It works for The Hunger Games Battle Royale, but that’s because the killing was for shits and giggles, not to select the next omnipotent overlord. And much as the thought of a mentally-imbalanced mass murderer as Deity-in-Chief amuses me, it would really make for one heck of a messed up world.

At least pick better candidates. A world with 8th at the helm would have been alright, but supreme power in the hands of a traumatized 5-year old is way out of bounds.

I suggest Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for the next Game. May the odds be ever in his favour.

Just a slight quibble: what’s with the different screen sizes?

Papa Gasai is the newest member of the Mirai Nikki badass club. Who else has survived two stabs at Yuno’s hand?

This part kind of cut deep. It’s like watching your childhood friend, or your classmate, or a friend of similar background, have good things happen to him/her, while you’re still struggling with the status quo.

Except that it’s an alternate universe self. That’s you! Or at least, it’s you from a different timeline! Where everything in life progressed in the exact same fashion except for that one event that changed everything for the better. That one single event – the only thing that happened that was different – and it didn’t happen for you.

So yes, Yuno Prime seeing Loli Yuno bonding with her family. That cuts deep.

Methinks this dream paradise is not sufficiently paradise enough. All Yuno needed to add in was a dream Yuno, and Yukiteru would have stayed in that magic beach ball forever.

Oh sure, plenty of existential and philosophical questions over it not being the same thing since it’s not the real Yuno, that it’s inherently meaningless, so on and so forth. But if Yukiteru wasn’t able to tell that it wasn’t real, he’d be happy. He’d be happy living his dream life with dream Yuno, none the wiser.

Bliss may be built on ignorance and false truth, but that doesn’t mean the bliss can’t be genuine or true.

I can’t help but wonder what Mirai Nikki would have been like if Yuno was the main protagonist and was presented as the true hero while Yukiteru was the bumbling, useless love interest.

… yeaaaah. Causality continuum be darned to heck.

Oho? Dare I say it?

A NEW CHALLENGER APPEARS

No construct could ever contain the physical embodiment of teenage angst that is Yukiteru.

It’s like Bruce Banner, except that you won’t like him when he’s suicidal, because then he turns into Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way.

Part of me wanted that bullet to hit, just to see if Yuno really has god powers and the associated super armour or regeneration.

So I’m guessing that this is Murmur 2.0. Notice how I cleverly deduced that from the prominent “2″ on her forehead.

I know all she did was to stop a bullet, but damn was that badass or what.

I like how Murmur 2.0 seems so much more badass just because of her unkempt hair. It gives her this Akuma vibe, I think.

… all this time and I never thought to wonder what was under that bandage =___=

What is rather impressive is that Murmur 2.0 still has her cufflink power restraints on. And she overwhelmed Murmur Prime just like that. Element of surprise maybe, or Murmur Prime’s too busy panicking over the changing futures?

I’d still think you’d need at least a RPG at a bare minimum if you want to take on an M1 Abrams, so Murmur 2.0 can’t be that weak.

Face it, if she was willing to kill Yukiteru, she’d have done it ages ago.

*gasp*

Holy frikkin shit Yuno just shanked herself in the side without flinching.

Badass. That makes it twice that Yuno’s stabbed herself.

“I’ll never let go, Jack. I promise.”

Rose DeWitt Bukater eat your heart out.

Sorry for the Titanic bashing, by the way, but the constant advertisements everywhere are really, really pissing me the heck off.

Goshdarn if those aren’t seriously tragic final words.

Poor Deus 2.0. Deceived, forced to reduce his own lifespan and powers, reduced to a little magic trinket that gets toted around and displayed for a heck of a long time. Dude just can’t catch a break

… Asread didn’t just totally rip this off from Thor, did they?

-too lazy to check the manga for this-

The first day of the rest of your life as an omnipotent, immortal being. Without the woman you love.

Whoop-de-effing-doo.

Dat flying baby.

So how exactly does Nishijima live with Minene 2.0? Considering that her face is on wanted posters and international databases and that he can’t exactly have her walking about or have his colleagues over?

It wouldn’t be Mirai Nikki without at least one question left unanswered.

And it wouldn’t be Mirai Nikki without Minene giving one last epic facial expression.

Oddly enough, Kurusu doesn’t seem all that happy. But I guess mild contentment is better than constant grief over his son’s condition.

MIRAI NIKKI OTP TWELFTH X THIRD

WHOS WITH ME

Shoutouts to Baccano!, because 7th still reminds me too much of Isaac and Miria, and the scene resemblance was just too uncanny.

Just another regular kid now.

Umm. Tsubaki? What ever are you dreaming about, I wonder?

OKAY

RIGHT

I DIDNT NEED TO SEE THAT

I know it’s petty, but I still snigger every time I think of how meaningless Akise’s existence is, now.

And there’s 10th to round up the former contestants.

And magically Deus isn’t dying.

But you know what annoys the hell out of me?

Why are there numbers on the Murmur’s heads? Aren’t the Worlds not supposed to exist until someone messes with the continuum? How can Deus 3.0 not wonder what’s with the “3″ on his World’s Murmur? How was it so perfect that Murmur Prime jumped to World 3 and not World 616? If there are an infinite number of parallel Worlds, does the font size grow smaller for Murmur 3141592653.0 or does it form a ring-tattoo around her head?

QUESTIONS

Yuno 3.0 seems really out of place. Maybe it’s the hair colour.

Yukiteru 3.0 hooked up with Wakaba? Emotions work differently in other Worlds, I guess. Or maybe this Yukiteru’s less of a pansy. We will never know.

It’s alright, Yuno 3.0. You’re not missing out on much.

Also the last stitch I’ll ever be making for Mirai Nikki. And Yuno (whichever version she may be) rightly deserves that honour.

Murmur Prime reduced to a keitai strap?

The person responsible must have been one spectacular badass. Especially after seeing her Raging Demon Mode and all.

Lol Yukiteru. Writers have no sense of scale. For one thing, I highly doubt that Yukiteru could stay sane after ten thousand years of moping.

And it would probably take more than ten thousand years for the planet/universe/plane of existence to disintegrate into whatever void that he’s floating in.

Alas, poor Murmur 2.o. She deserves better. And she’s a slow reader, too, but that’s not the point.

Kid, I hope you at least tried. I know people who could spend years playing The Sims, and your powers are much greater than that.

Although I have to say that I have finally encountered a version of Yukiteru I can respect. It’s amazing what long hair and a tattered cloak can do for a guy.

… wait, what?

“Yuno came to see me?” The heck is that burst of light? Did some version of Yuno in some other World win a Game and used her new god powers to find Yukiteru 2.0?

Gosh fudging darn it.

Well, that’s it. I don’t know if I should be writing my final impressions now, or after the OVA/movie’s released.

For what it’s worth though, it’s been fun blogging this, although I wouldn’t say that it was all that fun watching it sometimes – since I do need some moeblob action every now and then – and I hear that the manga is better than the anime (original material generally being superior and all), so I might just check it out.

Rewatchability: Not all that great. It’s like Steins;Gate – once you know the twists you’ll only watch it for little sneaky foreshadowing. But maybe it’s just me.

If nothing else, Mirai Nikki introduced me to Gasai Yuno. I’m pretty sure I don’t want a Yandere girlfriend anymore, but within the realms of 2D, the tale of Gasai Yuno will be retold again and again, time after time.

    That was a surprisingly satisfying ending up until that LOLwut final few seconds. If this ‘Next Project’ thing is talking about the live-action show then I am going to laugh so hard.

      Sadly, I think the live-action Another is going to be better than the live-action Mirai Nikki, if only because the actress for Another is cuter :3

    Aww they cut out the last crucial seconds of the ending. I recommend you go read the last ~10 pages of the manga just so you can understand what ‘Hammertime’ means in the context of Mirai nikki.

    Next project starting? I was pretty sure 26th was the conclusion.

    “Murmur Prime reduced to a keitai strap?”

    It looks like she is up to something.

    “I can’t help but wonder what Mirai Nikki would have been like if Yuno was the main protagonist and was presented as the true hero while Yukiteru was the bumbling, useless love interest.”

    Then perhapse, you should write a fanfiction?

    61-62, makes you wonder about Yuno´s origins? For som (un)reason, I can´t help but think that Yuno or/and her parents isn´t from the 1st world but that came from another one, where things are very different. Point of divergence going back not 1 or 2 years but 5000 or 20 000 years. Both her parents later came back but Yuno herself was left behind.

    That might explain those end credits scenes with a younger Yuno in some sort of post-apocalyptic world.

    Have you wondered about the Mirai Nikki themes? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKeR7mIux64 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9auXqaLJqs

    Mangas explain shit, animes just cut things short.

    “But Murmur easily brings Papa Gasai back just like that; no questions asked, no plotholes generated. Yeah, maybe he was still alive despite being stabbed like an episode ago.”

    In the previous episode, I believe Mama Gasai told 4th that someone injured her husband, so it’s not like the show is reviving him. They showed that he was merely injured. His wound location looks like it could have been non-fatal.

    “Second – Paradox? The only way there could be a paradox is if the Worlds interacted on the same timeline. But they don’t – if they did, the first paradox would have already occurred when Yuno Prime returned to kill her past self.”

    Yeah, there was a paradox in the Second World because Yuno 1 killed Yuno 2. Well, the paradox actually happened because she was *caught*, hence Deus being surprised when Yukiteru found the bodies. Now, Minene is trying to prevent a paradox in the Third World so that Yuno will be successful in being with an unsuspecting Yukiteru. I don’t see the problem.

    “It’s 2 whole years, and puberty’s probably in full swing. It might be rather difficult for a 15-16 year old Yuno Prime to pass off as a 13-15 year old Loli Yuno.”

    True, but her plan was to kill her parents again too. And, she wouldn’t have to go to school. She could be isolated until the next game starts.

    “I don’t know if it was intentional, but I love the symbolism in this scene. It’s kind of like a twist on the whole light at the end of the tunnel with the oncoming train thing.

    … except that Yukiteru’s not really dying, just breaking free of his Purgatory. And that he’s not in a tunnel, and the train wouldn’t be running him over anyway.”

    I absolutely love that you completely debunked your own analogy. :)

    “Yep, I still don’t get the causality thing. And until Esuno Sakae provides more information on how the Mirai Nikki universe works, I don’t think I ever will.”

    I’m not sure that this is what you meant, but I think Murmur was worried about too many things about the future Future Diary owners changing. Things change that would possibly make them not play the game the same way. For example, Fifth’s parents are not joining the cult anymore, so Fifth wouldn’t have a reason to get revenge on Yuno. Yuno killing Fifth’s parents was Fifth’s motivation for killing Yuno way back then.

    “So memories can be transferred across timelines now? What is this, Steins;Gate?”

    First of all, I was thinking Haruhi Suzumiya. Heh. Second of all, no, I don’t think memories can be transferred across timelines. Nishijima was probably referring to seeing Third World Minene, whom he has certainly seen seeing as she’s a wanted terrorist.

    “… I don’t see how the future changed because of random explosions in a school, but I’ll take the non-rape timeline anyday.”

    I was very curious about this too. Why was that bomb found? Is there something we missed? I might re-watch this episode and the previous episode after my exam.

    “… yeah, the plot just lost all its coherency. The universe is just screwing around just to screw with Murmur.”

    We need to know why Fifth’s parents joined the cult. Maybe the evil cult kidnapped them. But now that the cult isn’t evil, nothing of that sort will happen to Fifth’s parents. I’d prefer that the show gave us an explanation. Maybe there is a hint back in episode 4 or episode 5.

    “Also, how is Deus not noticing Murmur Prime’s actions, much less the damage to the causality-whatever?”

    Again, an awesome question. I think that he *is* noticing Murmur Prime’s actions. But those actions are a result of him starting the game in a different world, and he isn’t doing anything about it lest he interfers with his own game!

    “And much as the thought of a mentally-imbalanced mass murderer as Deity-in-Chief amuses me, it would really make for one heck of a messed up world.”

    Haha, this is an excellent point. What was Deus thinking?
    It makes sense that he picked people with strong motivations for becoming God, but why make them fight to the death? I don’t get that.

    “… all this time and I never thought to wonder what was under that bandage =___=”

    DID NOT SEE THAT. Thank you for pointing this out! I thought the X was part of her character design since the start of the show. I love how silly this is, seeing as how Deus didn’t ever notice the bandage.

    “Goshdarn if those aren’t seriously tragic final words.”

    Not just tragic words. They’re also a reference to Yuno saying “You got a little better at kissing” near the end of episode 12.

    “How can Deus 3.0 not wonder what’s with the “3″ on his World’s Murmur?”

    Very true. Another reason why I love how silly this whole idea is.

    ““Yuno came to see me?” The heck is that burst of light? Did some version of Yuno in some other World win a Game and used her new god powers to find Yukiteru 2.0?”

    World 3 Yuno, I think. This was hinted at when she stared out the window at the end of the episode saying that something was missing. World 3 was still ending, and Deus was still planning on choosing a successor somehow. It seems that whatever Deus decided to do, Yuno 3 won in the end, and came to World 2 to see Yukiteru.
    No, wait. I think this is more probable:
    World 1 Yuno is back. At the end, the cell phone changed from saying that Yuno died to saying that Yuno came to see Yukiteru. That means that Yuno 1 didn’t die! Her stab wasn’t fatal, supposedly.
    My problem with this is that if Yuno didn’t die, should Yukiteru really have become God?

      Posted February 9, 2013 at 6:49 pm | Permalink

      Catching up with the comments, but I assumed Ninth put the bomb there to frame the bad guy who turned the cult evil. As for causality, it’s the *Second* World that’s abnormal. Earlier in the series, Deus mentions he had to work at causing enough coincidences to set up the game.

  8. Daniel S.
    Posted April 16, 2012 at 3:43 pm | Permalink

    Another thing. What if Yuno 3 picked up Yuno 1′s cell phone and read all those diary messages. Then, she could have gotten motivated to meet Yukiteru, and then became God and visited him in World 2.
    And, the cell phone would still change from “Yuno stabbed herself and died” to “Yuno visited me”, because the cell phone goes by what Yukiteru thinks, and he would think that Yuno 1 is the Yuno that visited him.

    • Posted April 16, 2012 at 7:52 pm | Permalink

      > I don’t know, shock sets in pretty quick, and kills pretty quick too. But maybe Papa Gasai really is that much of a badass.

      > I think we have different definitions of what a paradox is :/ For the case of Mirai Nikki, I think the issue here is a temporal paradox: an impossible situation that arises when causality is tampered with, e.g. going back in time and killing your younger self.

      I.e., if the Worlds were on the same timeline, Yuno Prime would actually have been an older Yuno 2.0., and when Yuno 2.0. dies, Yuno Prime ought to die too. And then of course the temporal paradox begins in where if there’s no Yuno Prime, Yuno 2.0. wouldn’t have died – but then if Yuno 2.0. survives, she’ll grow up to be Yuno Prime to go back in time to kill herself. And so on.

      But that doesn’t happen. So the only explanation is that whenever someone goes back in time, they’re not going back in time to their own World, but to a separate World altogether. Or rather, the act of time leaping creates an alternate universe. So there is no temporal paradox, because Yuno Prime isn’t killing her past self, she’s killing someone unconnected to her who appears to be her past self.

      Therefore, in the Third World, Murmur and Yuno Primes have no need to be responsible for their actions. If Papa Gasai dies, all that would happen is that the Gasai family destabilizes faster. Sure, events will not play out as in the First and Second Worlds, but then all they need to do is to jump to a 4th World.

      > If Yuno Prime was going to kill the family, why did Murmur Prime save Papa Gasai? ;D

      > Causality: cause-and-effect. See also temporal paradox~

        > You’re right, I wasn’t using the word “paradox” correctly. Also, I said Minene instead of Murmur. What I meant to say is this:
        Murmur is trying to prevent UNEXPECTED EVENTS AS A RESULT OF THEM HAVING RETURNED TO THE PAST in the Third World so that Yuno 1 will be successful in being with an unsuspecting Yukiteru 3.
        That’s close to what a paradox is, but it’s not, you’re right. The timelines are mutually distinct. It could have been a translation error.

        > What I think: Murmur saved Papa Gasai because Mama Gasai was worried about him, and could have done something unexpected and dangerous to the timeline upon finding out her husband is injured. I would assume Murmur already knew though that Mama Gasai knew, though, with her magical computer screens.
        It could also have been to make sure he dies *at the right time*, so that the people at his workplace don’t do something unexpected upon finding out he’s dead.

        Again, yes, it’s not to prevent a paradox, it’s to prevent unexpected events.

        > You could have been told the story of an alternate ending fanfiction by Netto. It might not be what REALLY happens (I won’t tell you). I, though, have really been spoiled. Dynello’s comment made me look up the manga’s ending. His comment made it seem that something DIFFERENT happen, not something MORE.

        But there is definitely more speculating to do. The anime will definitely do more than the manga, considering the manga’s extended part would only last a minute in the anime. If they will make a whole new episode, there will be LOTS more.

        And, on top of everything, THERE WILL BE A SEQUEL!

        I just read the last bit of the manga (thanks to Dynellen’s comment, damn him). There is way too little in that last bit of manga to cover an entire episode of Mirai Nikki. They might stretch it in an OVA out by showing everyone’s future.

        I won’t tell you if he actually spoiled the plot or just wrote a fanfiction alternate ending. You’d know if you read the manga. Ugh.

        But, PROJECT 2. That means sequel! We are definitely not finished here, folks.

        Sorry about that, but I just thought there is much too little to go on for 10 pages worth of manga for me to spoil. Even then that ending grated some people for as I said it’s “implausibility.” I just thought it ended in such a cliff hanger that the real ending needed to be told.

        I assure you though it was no fanfic. Even I cannot write stuff as absurd as that.

          JOHNNY. READ THIS COMMENT BEFORE READING NETTO’S COMMENT ABOVE MINE.

          In the post above this one, Netto tells whether his possible spoiler was a fanfic he made up or not. If it is, it’s a big spoiler. If it isn’t, it’s still a spoiler because it eliminates a possible explanation, because a fanfic he made up would definitely not be the same as the ending of the manga. And he did read the manga, as he explains. The ONLY way this is not a spoiler for you is by you NOT KNOWING whether he made it up or not.

          Basically, avoid reading his comment if you don’t want to know whether his previous spoiler was real or was an alternate ending that he made up.

    1- First world explodes and no god to reconstruct it
    2. Second world explodes and god is a crybaby
    3. Yuno is left yuki-less and the world will most likely explode because Deus sucks at choosing candidates to replace him. Why does an inmortal been need a replacement to begin with? Yukiteru interithed like 1/10th of Deus-2′s powers (half was with Minene to begin with) and managed to live 10,000 years,

    The series manages to gives us not one, but 3 BAD ENDs.

    And what the hell is up with the floating baby?? Does Minene-2 kept her god powers? Murmur-3 did say the interference from other realities had disappeared and conveniently overlook Minene-2 (Deus-2 failed to notice Yuno-1 so I’m guessing their monitoring skills suck big time). And killing Yuno’s dad makes paradoxes but making floating-pirate-terrorist-god babies is perfectly fine.

    One final rant…
    11th: Deus! The phone thing I talked you about turned out to be crap.
    Deus: Really? To hell with this I’m just trowing dices on the new world’s god.
    11th. Ok, you do your thing I’ll just go donate my money to a random orphanage and get a girl or something.

    I forgot one more rant…
    Why does kousaka know Akise and the others? He was supposed to meet them after transferring schools because of a certain terrorist incident. God, this ending was terrible.

      Any ending with floating-pirate-terrorist-god babies and a useless Akise is a PERFECT end in my book (´ー`)y-~~

    True, Deus 3.0
    Picking successor with such method is an epic fail, because, just look at Yukiteru 2.0!!
    I may cry for several days if I lose my lover, but definitely not ten thousand years,
    With God’s power at hand. I will have lots of fun playing real life Sims, Zoo Tycoon, Rail Tycoon, Age of the Empires, Command and Conquer, etc.

    I think that with respects to the causality continuum-based nonsense here, Murmur can only respond Doctor-style: “This is my timey-wimey detector. It bleeps when there’s stuff.”

    Oh yeah, and I just managed to process Nishijima’s ultimate endgame goal there. HOLY CRAP YOU CRAZY BASTARD.

    I’m really glad they animated the flying 9th + Nishijima babies. I found that so funny the first time I saw it.

    As for the effects of the school being destroyed, given the Police response, First Responders and what likely happened to the traffic flows for the next few days, plus the fact all of the students would be attending different schools, the future would have changed drastically for everyone in the area. And I, too, prefer the much less rape outcome.

    Oh, and one thing to remember about this series, it’s pretty much a “anything is possible, not everything is possible” take on life. Yuki 1.0 won the Survival Game, with Yuno’s help. You saw hints of his capabilities through the series, plus a lot of scenes with a guy not able to handle it all. Yandere Yuno ruined that part of Yuki. Her attempts to “help” only made it worse. Which is why Yuno failed so badly throughout the series.

    I’m of the opinion that Yuki didn’t spend 10k year mopping. He spent a few months and just slept off most of those 10k years. Kind of “Odin Sleep” or something. At least, that made more sense to me, haha.

    8th & 11th on a date. That just can’t be unseen.

    • Posted April 17, 2012 at 10:27 pm | Permalink

      Well, it’s not that I think the future wouldn’t have changed. It’s just that it changed too damn fast.

      I mean, shouldn’t 3rd only have begun his murders in 2 years’ time? Either the 3rd World’s sequence of events have already progressed differently, or someone has a real hard-on for chaos theory/the butterfly effect.

    Can i say….. I’m not satisfied with this last….
    I’m still in love with Yuno and Yuki.. but why everything ended like this? :o
    can someone explain to me…
    1. what about 2nd world minene that married with 3rd nishijima? it’s look awesome, but it make me confused -___-”
    2. yuno’s sound in the end,,, which world yuno is that?
    3. in third world… how can Yuki ended up with Wakaba? Yuki without Yuno, that make me sad :(
    4. last question… i dont want to say somethin shitties about the end, although it still one of the most great anime i ever seen… but, what about the next project? live action? paradox ova? or what? explain for me pls :)

    • Posted April 17, 2012 at 10:29 pm | Permalink

      1. Kind of sad that Nishijima 2.0 doesn’t get his happy married ending, because he’s DEAD, but oh well.
      2. It’s a Yuno from the 616 World, where she stole the Infinity Gauntlet from Thanos ;D
      3. Yuno without Yukiteru? FLAWLESS VICTORY
      4. Your guess is as good as mine ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌

    I know it’s petty, but I still snigger every time I think of how meaningless Akise’s existence is, now.

    Yeah…
    What is the purpose of his existence now? He was created to interfere with the Game, so why did Deus create him in this world?

    • Daniel S.
      Posted April 18, 2012 at 12:49 am | Permalink

      Deus was planning on making a game up until Eleventh told him what his Watcher predicted. I guess he hadn’t bothered to get rid of Akise yet.

    The manga’s ending was actually one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. Wanna know why?

    It fit perfectly with the atmosphere of the series. Not only was the show not taking itself seriously, it was pulling a Suckerpunch to bat. If you don’t understand the reference, watch these videos:

    http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/the-big-picture/6247-You-Are-Wrong-About-Sucker-Punch-Part-One

    http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/the-big-picture/6266-You-Are-Wrong-About-Sucker-Punch-Part-Two

    I fell out of my chair laughing when the Hammer came through. :P

  24. Posted September 20, 2012 at 11:07 pm | Permalink

    But, all joking aside, I have a theory about the ending to both the show and the manga.

    Let’s get this show started:

    1. When Muru and Yuno Prime trapped Yuki in the sphere, it was game over for him.
    2. The sphere showed him his greatest desires and his deepest desire was to save Yuno.
    3. He willed it to happen so much that his breaking free was actually all inside of his head.
    4. He was still inside of the sphere the entire time.
    5. While this was going on, Yuno Prime had already killed 3rd world Yuno and her parents.
    6. The cycle would keep going for all of eternity and nothing would be resolved except eternal death and destruction.

    Anyone else love Repomen? :P
