I believed that Yuji seemed more shocked then anything that there where more people out there that not only knew about duse but are able to speak with him.

As for how duse selects people? Maybe these are people how have a strong will or desire change their lives of destinies. Come on if someone was offering you a chance to give up your crappy life for Godhood you wouldn't that it?

I think that's definitely a good recommendation for this show. I don't really agree however that this applies to anything that goes on TV. Well it does for most of that probably.

Anyway the point is that you'd better not expect Mirai Nikki to be overly realistic and absolutely logical. It will only get worse. It's a shounen manga not a seinen.

Enjoy your Yuno.

It's interesting that the game (for Yuki) starts with Yuki's choice. Deus asks him if he is lonely, and then if he would "change [himself] if [he] could." When Yuki doesn't respond, Deus takes his silence as an assent, and says, "Very well. / I'll give you the future." From that point Yuki's phone tells the future and Yuki is enrolled in the game.

The game is not something that happens to Yuki, but is in some sense something he chooses, even something he invents, as an antidote to his initial loneliness and boredom. In its origin, the narrative is Yuki's wish-fulfillment.

This is why Yuno is so disquieting: she is a wish-fulfillment brought to life, but seen as such. If the hottest girl in school is suddenly in love with you, completely out of the blue, then you know have left Kansas far behind, and are now in completely uncharted space. The anime's brilliant twist is to show that the encounter with one's own desires made flesh is a profoundly alienating and terrifying experience.

In a world defined by wish, what counts as real? The wishes themselves, certainly. The obstacles to their realization, by extension. What else?

If you guys are already enjoying the anime and/or the manga I would highly recommend Doubt manga and it's ongoing sequel Judge manga.
Not as epic as Mirai Nikki but a pretty good read for someone who enjoys gore.

And I still don't like the director attached to this project. He's alright director but not too great. I hope this anime is a faithful adaptation as I'm already not so content with the choice of the cast.

And yeah this is at least miles better than 90% of TV shows there are nowadays.

This was actually so much better than most of the fall premieres, that it went from the bottom of my list to second place. [I'll never tell you what's in first, it's embarrassing.]

First episode was good, but in all honesty, Yukki scares me more than Yuno. If the hottest girl in school fell in love with me and I could read the future, I wouldn't be scared/on the verge of a breakdown, and why the hell is he crying at the end?
That being said, I've read the manga...THAT's how out-of-place the MC seems to me :P

P.S: Deus' looks are inversely proportional to his voice, such a shame...

You didn't notice that Yuno is a crazy stalker.
Stalkers don't scare you?
And now he has to potentially rely on this crazy stalker girl to survive a game where everyone else is going to try to kill him.

Lewl bro, if the hottest girl in school all of a sudden followed me to a freaking elevator while I was running away from her after I was informed that I would be killed in the next moment, I would be pretty damn scared too. And if the said girl instead kisses me and proceeds to inform me in great detail how she has been keeping a log of all my activities every freaking ten minutes, I would be on the verge of a breakdown too. It wouldn't at all help if the girl asks me out to eat dinner after watching a guy fucking die for heaven's sake - and all that with a smile and a nonchalant "That's all? How boring" for a remark on the guy's death. Scary shit is scary.

Considering how much I loved the manga, I'm excited for the rest of the anime. I'm also shocked about... that intro, it threw me off they'd show something like that already. Though I guess it helps.

At first I thought the ED was lazy, but then I realized that it was actually pretty clever.

The voice acting seems fine to me. The only thing that really bugged me at all about this episode was that Yuno just seemed.. horny. Not so "innocently" insane like the manga. Though I also remember thinking that, before Yuno started trying to talk to him, "if I hadn't read the manga, I'd probably be a little bored or confused", but the possible boredom subsided by that second half.

I'm having fun seeing what new watchers think.

I'm not a fan of Yukiteru being voiced by a female VA, I could tell right off the bat. Oh wells, looks like I'll have to get used to it.

I rewatched the episode again, this time watching the small clip after the credits about the Third. I couldn't stop laughing.
