Unknowingly, Yuki just accepted to be a part of a twisted survival game, between him and 11 other players who have also been granted “Future Diaries”.  The rule of the game is simple, eliminate the other diary holders and win the chance at becoming the next god.

  • Each diary varies in properties and functions depending on the holder’s personality, occupation and lifestyle. All the diaries have their pro’s and cons, some more so than others, and can be used without the diary owner’s consent should they fall into another’s hands. Because the diaries are written from the perspective of the holder’s future self, the future can still be misinterpreted and the diary entries can then turn out to be inaccurate. Each of the diaries have become the diary holder’s future, so if the diary itself is destroyed or broken, so too is the holder’s future.

       Future Diary is definitely a favorite, I really enjoy the series and the story that comes with it. I’m always up for a survival series, especially one in which the main character depends on a cute psychotic character. It’s a really fun series to watch. Every time I call my cats name “Yuki” I always remember Future Diary, haha, his name didn’t come from it though. The series really threw me for a loop at the end, I couldn’t have expected those turn of events but none the less I was pleased. If you like crazy Yandere characters, and survival games this is a series you should check out.

       I have high hopes that some day I will run into the manga, so I can finally own and read it.😪😪😪  I saw the sub and the dub, I like both of them but I like Japanese Yuno more. She sounds way more psychotic and I love the way she says “Yuki”. 

Ps. Minene Uryuu is my second favorite character in the series besides Yuno.

        Immortal hounds is an interesting read, a world in which no one can die from wounds or illness. To the point where they even cure their illnesses by killing themselves and reviving instantly with a clean bill of health. I was naturally drawn to the covers with splatter and interesting looking characters. The story had me wanting to know what happens next with the ending of every volume. 

         Unfortunately and much to my surprise,the series only has six volumes. With this, I feel that the characters are under developed as well as the story and the ending wasn’t clear enough for it to really be “the end” and conflicts didn’t seem fully resolved. Despite this fact, I feel that the series is still a fun one to go through, jam packed with action! 
         If you guys have access to reading online, I would definitely recommend it, I’m happy to have owned it for the entertainment aspect. It’s really a gamble, if you’re bored go for it, if you want fulfillment, this won’t really do it for ya.

         But if it is any solace at all, the girl characters area really cute and bad ass!

Magical Girl Apocalypse

      Magical Girl Apocalypse is an action-horror manga written and illustrated by Kentarō Satō. The manga has 16 volumes out with a spin off series Magical Girl Site. A twist on the typical magical girl story that begins with Kii Kogami, a normal high school freshmen who becomes bored of his same old routine. He wishes for more excitement, but as they say “Be careful what you wish for”.

      As Kentarō gazed outside the school window, he still longed for a more entertaining life. What he witnessed that day was something truly terrifying, a teacher confronting a sweet little girl. With a swift hit to the head, the teacher’s head exploded. Kentarō quickly makes his way to the restroom to gather himself, but when he returns he finds that his classmates met the same fate.
       Magical girls like the one he had seen before are now terrorizing the whole world, killing everyone in sight. Now he and other survivors must do everything they can to stay alive and find out the events that lead to the devestation.

 

       Magical girl apocalypse was a rare find at one of my many Barnes and Noble adventures. My boyfriend was the one to pick up the manga, I wasn’t interested until he showed me a photo of the brutal carnage that was inside it, I was instantly won over. There are 16 volumes out now, but I only have up to Volume 9. 

       I loved this manga in the beginning but when reaching a certain point in the series, I began to get bored and lose interest. I personally feel that it was being dragged out way too much, and the ending should have been at an earlier volume. I have mixed feelings when it comes to this series, I have likes and dislikes, but I do feel you guys should check it out and see for yourselves since the series was good enough to get a spin off.  One really cool thing, was seeing all the different Magical girls and their powers. You guys will really get a kick out of them!
