Yuki's voice aside (didn't really like it), this episode was certainly interesting. And I guess we've always known it: Norio Wakamoto is God.
Yes. Wow. Yuno soo creepy.
1) She called it the "Yukiteru Diary."
A) The diaries seem to know something of interest to the person. For example, the murderer's diary knew about murders.
B) Thus it follows that Yuno is stalking Yukiteru (because he is of interest to her for no good reason)

2) Yuno is a cold blooded killer. Sooo creepy.
A) It doesn't faze her at all that a murderer is on the way.
B) When the plan succeeds, she says "how boring!"


Can we play a forum game:
You are Yukiteru. You know everything Yukiteru does at this point.
Your mission: Devise a strategy to beat Yuno.

I think it is an impossible problem. I give up.
Yuno's diary knows what Yukiteru will do in the next ten minutes. So if he would kill Yuno in the next ten minutes, Yuno would know and would try to stop it.

Here's a freebie sig for the honour of our new yandere heroine. Can't help but love her...



I really liked the first episode, and can't wait for more. I leave deeper comments to others ;D

Solid episode but if I have to nitpick at the direction, I wasn't the fan of Yuno's entrance at the elevator scene. Voicewise, I agree that Yukiteru's voice is too girly.

She will not kill you, she will just kill all the other girls around you

Other than that, I don't see the problem with Yuki's voice. I think, it's perfectly fine.

Oh! A thriller, mystery and suspence... just what I need
Though it is a bit weird to see everyone to be willing to kill each other... Did Deuz Machine choose such guys on purpose? All psychos? Yuki is so out of it!

I really wonder what made Yuuno interested in him when Yuki barely stands out... I guess for now it is good to have her as a stalker, all he needs to do is to be nice to her
The real problems will start when the two of them will be left... I already can see her bathing in his blood and shining from enjoyment.

They did this first episode really well. The designs are superb, music is good, and touched point on the main char's personality.

I loved the way the other diary holders are keeping on their toes since Deus proclaimed that Yuki may win the game. How they all addressed Yuki as if they are going to hunt him down all the while he shakes in fear was excellent =03!

The epilogue for ep 1 was hilarious X03! I don't think they had that in the manga. I can't believe the 3rd killed himself twice before he knew what was going on .

And I expected somebody to make that last Yuno scene an avi =0(.

Still don't understand how number 3 was able to track Yukki. Yuno said he left a trail, but didn't he only use the diary to do good on tests and avoid getting beat up.
The following is all based on hints you can find in the first episode. Spoiled just in case someone hasn't seen the first episode yet:

Do I need to say more?

Don't feel too bad if you missed it. Yukkiteru himself probably doesn't know what happened. Heck, I read the manga and never figured it out until I watched this episode.

I totally missed that, guess if I keep watching this I'd better pay closer attention to the background details. I want to keep watching this any way but I'm already following one fansub for the season so unless this gets picked up for a simulcast it might be a while before I get a chance to continue.

I feel bad for First. After performing a miracle thanks to Yuno's help, he's now the target for all the other future diary users. Yuno on the other hand just gives me chills, especially during the ending with her glowing eyes and creepy yet adorable lovey face...

The ending was funny though with how Third kept killing himself over and over

A true yandere heroine...haven't had that in awhile, so tired of the comedic type that doesn't actually do anything.

Fist ep wise...definitely intriguing. I'm afraid I'm gonna hate myself if I follow it every week though. Maybe I will save a couple ep and watch in one go each time.

EDIT: Vane, may I use that freebie sig as an image for a post on my blog? Credit will be given.

Oh wow, I didn't notice that either until now. Holy crap, I guess it went right over my head. I didn't even think of it possibly be a person we were familiar with. I thought it was just some random serial killer.

Anyway, I've read a little over half of the manga before I stopped. I think I'll just watch from the anime. Either way, I really enjoyed this episode and it reminded me why I got so interested in the series when I first started reading. Like others, I didn't really like Yuki or Yuno's voice but moreso Yuki's since the VA didn't even bother trying to sound a bit more masculine. Animation was okay but I didn't like the CG that much. But the OST was very good and fitting for the series.

The episode really got me pumped.

Not like there wouldn't be chances. Say there is a difficult diary user that Yuno takes down but not without serious damage herself. Well then even if she knows what's coming it won't be that easy to prevent her own death. Plus if she's this super obsessed with Yukiteru and he truly wants her gone it's possible she might accept that. Maybe not, but it's possible.

Unfortunately I can't join the chorus here since I found this first episode to be downright amateurish from top to bottom. The fact that the series I find this reminds me of the most is [C] The Money of Possibility and Soul Control doesn't help much.

First it can't be understated just how ugly I find this show to be in terms of animation and aesthetic from top to bottom. The character design is fine, but the average character art in the show is pretty bland to downright clearly off model for the most part. Also I'm not normally one to complain about CGI, finding that anime has lately had a better grip on blending 3D background art assets with 2D character models, but that was seriously some of the ugliest CGI I've seen in a while. Some of the architecture in Deus Ex Machina's world look like it hadn't been textured properly let alone dithered such that it looked noticeably fuzzy and blurry. Really doesn't look good at all, especially for a first episode of an apparently popular manga's adaptation.

The characters themselves I'd also have to describe as kind of bland. The main character doesn't exhibit much personality nor does he seem to have any sort of relationship with anyone other than this Deus Ex Machina imaginary but not really imaginary friend. I can't say I felt any sort of chemistry going with Yuno either who he mostly seems to admire as that character archetype that is fastly becoming one of my least favorites. The perfect school idol that everyone is infatuated with that gets good grades and is good at everything, but has a downright sociopathic personality. A lot of people seem to really go for this package, but I personally can't stand this character archetype much as some may have seen me express before. It just doesn't make for an interesting female character by my standards, but we'll see where they go with it I guess.

In any case she doesn't do much to win any sympathy or interest from me either in her actions this episode nor does she have anything in the way of back story or personality introduced. In fact nobody is really well introduced in this episode at all and the premise is kind of hurriedly introduced in the second part such that I had to read a wikipedia article to fully grasp it. It kind of reminds me a bit of the premise of Eden of The East in terms of the game and trying to one up each other, only where the premise there was towards a good cause in saving Japan and the male and female lead were charming, humble and likeable, here the goal is simply to become the successor to Deus (why and how?) by breaking each others phones thus causing them to spin into a tornado vortex and the characters are crass, dull, violent and lacking in personality.

Just not a very good first episode at all and really gave me little to go on or be interested in, but I'll give it a chance and see where things go next episode. Just please can it look a little better?

I was kind of disappointed with the first episode too but only because of the weird pacing. I think everything was happening way too fast because I didn't feel any of the scenes had enough time to give the desired impact. I didn't feel any of the fear, anxiety and confusion that Yuki felt for example when he was confrotning the serial killer. I hope it gets better now that the premise is established. It may be just that they didn't want to spend more than one episode establishing the premise so they squashed it all into the first episode.
