After having a dip in the drama version of what was adapted from the Anime TV series, Mirai Nikki 未来日記. It feels weird with the change of scripts and characters but the whole concept is the same. The minute changes I can detect is that if you have the Chronos Phone you will be automatically be entered into the game. On the flip side, Deus, the God in the Mirai Nikki world, have changed into a smiling star.
The yandere-ness (If that’s even a word) of the newly crafted Yuno portray by Gouriki Ayame is amiss. She is made sweet and lovable. You can’t see the killer instinct of Yuno overly protective behavior to Arata (Yuki) nor feels the creepy aura from her. Maybe it’s just the beginning of the show and the producer don’t want to scare audience away?
On another note, the new university student Hoshino Arata who is the newly repackaged Yuki is not such a big pussy anymore. You and I know that we want to b!tch slap him sometimes when he chicken out in the Anime. His personality is not really a loner type but a very happy-go-lucky-airhead type.
I’m not advocating that episode 1 is bad however it was certainly interesting and worth the time to watch it through. Perhaps the comings episode might spice things up a bit? I will certainly be on the look out.
On something that is totally different.
I was thinking of creating an android app of Mirai Nikki which uses you social media accounts (facebook, twitter, google+ and google calender) to get information about your daily life and routines. Then, process those data into something predictable that will pop itself up on your “Future Diary”.
If your finals around the corner, assignment deadline or parents is coming for a visit a DEAD END flag with a red background will pop up in the app itself as a warning. It would be a fun app, nothing serious but the goal of the app will become more than a mere reminder tool.
I’m not capable to create any Android app yet however if you are able. Why don’t give this a try?
