Today I’ll be talking about two of my least favorite anime. These are the animes that were highly recommended to me and had some really good ratings, but which ended up leaving me dissatisfied and disappointed. This is not a hatepost or a rant, but just my own personal thoughts on certain aspects that I disliked about the two animes. We’re always doing a favourites post, so I thought it’d be cool to do something different and try out a least favorite post.
Many of you may not agree with me, and that’s alright. We’re all different people here with differing opinions, and discussing them in a civilised and respectable manner is what I love about blogging.

1. Mirai Nikki (Future Diary):
I had huge expectations from this anime as it had some really great feedback from viewers. The beginning of the anime was interesting, but it started seeming stretched and forced towards the end. The concept and idea had a great potential, but I felt that the anime wasn’t able to live up to it. I also didn’t like some of the themes featured in the anime, for example having a small child (reisuke) become a diary holder. And portraying him as an antagonist and killing him without any regrets. I mean, seriously, you are willing to murder a small child who doesn’t even have the level of maturity to be playing the game and not even mourning it later. I expected the anime to be some sort of protest or rebellion against the survival game like the hunger games book trilogy, but it wasn’t the case. Also, YANDERE! How cool. But not really. I did not like the character of Yuno as much. And towards the end the whole parallel Yuno and time travel concept seemed very confusing and far fetched. And Yuki is the weakest protagonist I’ve ever come across. The fact that he was so gullible and naive, really bothered me. So, yes, the anime could have been great, but it wasn’t. The opening, however is really catchy and nice.
It was an okayish anime. Again, great viewer review and feedback, but didn’t live up to my expectations. It has nothing to do with the fact that it is a horror anime without being even remotely scary, because I already knew that it wouldn’t be. I think I have the same issue with this anime as well. Every single person dying. I don’t have anything against violence(I’ve seen snk\aot and I love it)but with the fact that those deaths were pointless and without any meaning. The suspense was intriguing and the reveal was good, but it could have been better. I think the main issue with me is that it was just the two of them against the world, and only the two of them were right and all the side characters were just side characters. Same goes with Mirai Nikki.
Yuki and Yuno/Kouichi and Misaki, against the entire world and the people, who will eventually die.
