One thing is for sure, Yuno and Yukiteru are both entirely inept as gods of causality... even Eleventh would be better because at least he'd create something... Eighth probably was the best choice after all like her children said; even if she is some sort of bizarre subspecies of human with massive heads.

I thought Yuki was considered the best god because he just observes. Which is pretty much what god should do. Of course, you have to create something to observe, but that's neither here nor there.

Edit: Also, I don't see how an anime sequel could work. There's not enough material to warrant anything more than an OVA. Or the author's other series, but I've said before that it's too new to adapt. Yes, Asread has done anime-only stuff, like the godawful Shuffle Memories, but I hope it doesn't do that here. Especially not to a series that didn't sell well.

I just read the manga ending on wikipedia and I like that more than the anime ending.

Even though the anime ending was kinda the same they just didnt animate the very end bit.

Do you think it will be included in the bluray/dvd?
And whats with that new project thing? A anime sequel?

I think they should be anime for side series for Mirai Nikki.

Yeah, I agree. I actually thought one of Mirai Nikki's strong points is the consistency of its characterization, and that any changes in personality were almost always believable and well-justified.

It was a very interesting decision by Asread to stop where they did, especially with that "next project" tease.

I always find the discussion of Mirai Nikki interesting, because it seems odd that the series has so many fans when so few seem to get what Esuno was trying to do with the series - I guess Yuno and the overall entertaining trash factor are the reasons. The very stuff people complain about - Yuki's flaws, the so-called plot holes, and the like - are the whole point. And he's actually taking on a lot of the same questions Anno Hideki did in Eva, to the point where many of the characters could be argued to be avatars to NGE counterparts (and the ending certainly ties into that).

I needed a day to think about the ending.... whats the adjective that best describes it? Ridiculous? Mocking at the audience? Open ending after building up the suspense? Really I am unsure, but I sure feel screwed over.

Now, I am used to anime endings that dont leave me satisfied. I have come to expect it, because it seems to be part of what makes animes anime. But really, this beats it all.

So after all the Yuno loves Yukki and Yukki loves Yuno and how they want to save each other..... we get an ending that shows us a depressed Yukki rotting 10 000 years in some weird space.... and wait, what is that about "I wonder what happened to Yuno 3, I cant see it from here anymore".

What do you mean you cant see it? Arent you god of time and space?

My only hope is the mysterious "next project". I sure hope they dont mean the life action movie, I am very much hoping for an ova, that will show how Yuno and Yukki get together in some way or another. Also, cant Yukki just leave that place and mingle with the mortals in the real world? I would if I was him.

OVA or sequel series about the game used to find the "Deus" for the third world. Hooks for sequel or expended ending.

- 1st Murmur is still alive
- 1st Murmur is hiding out as a charm on Third Yuno's phone
- Third Deus talks about finding a new way to choose his successor
- 1st Yuno died without a successor but it seems her Universe did not die since 1st Murmur seems to have survived.
- Yuno didn't die as a mortal. Yuno died as the Deus of the 1st dimension. We're not even sure she could have even been killed by normal methods during the second game. Only died as a contestant of second game but she was still Deus of first universe. Ninth could take a ton of punishment with only a fraction of Deus' dying power. 1st Yuno was holding back the whole time to avoid getting noticed by Deus #2. Yuno stabbed herself but she should have been able to survive it because of her Deus powers. She probably gave up on living and it that case she may not really be dead.

Manga writer and anime writers may collaborate on a new ending for series. Manga/Anime endings expanded upon, mixed together, or altered a bit.


Spoiler for SPECULATION:

i actually enjoyed the manga ending too more considering all the negative experiences they had they deserve a better ending

and i hope the next project will be 2 remake movies (that means entirely reanimated) in more concise story (it could happen )

Guardian Enzo: half-agree, half-disagree. I'd say Sakae's main "issues" don't really overlap that much with NGE's (character similarities notwithstanding). I won't get into NGE because that conversation always goes on forever, .

Spoiler for Length:


Or, concisely: NGE came across to me as mostly about human relationships, and used the way the characters deal with its many desperate, no-win scenarios to bring out and develop those human relationships; MN is about how people deal with desperate, no-win scenarios, and used its human relationships to bring out and develop those reactions.

Overall I have to say I think this is one of the few adaptions that surpass the original.
Except the ending. What a strange choice to cut it off at that point.

Still, good heavens, the music in the final episode alone made it so much better.

I always thought the complaints about Yuki were completely ridiculous. "God, Yuki is such a pansy! I can't believe he's so whiny and terrified all the time. You know, unlike all those other 14 year olds I know that would calmly and gracefully handle being abruptly thrust into a battle to the death against a psychotic terrorist."

I agree completely with you. I thought it was refreshing to see a realistically behaving teenie.

However... the ending ruined it. Is it so much to ask for a solid ending?

I just thought that I'd say that from the VERY first episode (or chapter, if you read the manga first), once you saw that there was a pretty important character named Deus Ex Machina... You should've known then and there what kind of ending was going to be in store.

Anyway, I have mixed feelings about them deciding to leave out the last bit of the manga's ending scene. Part of me likes it, part of me doesn't. :S The manga version embodies what I said above, so I think I prefer it.

I just looked through manga ending and I prefer anime one! The last bit in manga came out of nowhere and looked like one of Murmur specials! Don't like it!

This kind of depressing ending fits better.

It was what I thought first (not right after the first episode, but early on), but the second thought I had was that they wouldn't ever stick with it through the end. And, except for the very last minute, they surprised me. In fact I found the end, or better say, this end, sad but coherent.

(I didn't read the manga, but from what I read about, the other ending was, well, not fitting? Unless it was intended as Terry Gilliam's Brazil ending).

I do find it interesting that a new project has been greenlighted.The blu ray sales weren't good so that can't be the reason,did the manga sales increase?

And the fact that the anime ending a bit early means that you got your popcorn out for no reason. I haven't read the manga, but I'm pretty sure that most of the silliest things about the ending (The hammer, mainly) that would've inspired the most lol-worthy reactions are from after where the anime stops.

Yeah, the idea of a new project sounds pretty weird to me too. A new project 'beginning' makes it sound like something that's going to span a bit of time, while I get the impression there's so little material left it would be hard to make even a single OVA from it. It might be some sort of sequel or original material, as mentioned before, which I'm down with. I loved Mirai Nikki, nothing wrong with getting some more.

The BD/DVD sales weren't terrible, considering seinen titles don't generally do all that well. I'm sure the manga sales received quite a kick.
