Mirai Nikki is way up there as my least favourite anime. Elfen Lied, which is much the same caliber of shit is the only one I might have enjoyed less.I never watched Elfen Lied, I heard it was pretty much of a gore fest.
But aside from that, Is it really worth watching?
I mean I literally just said it's my least favourite anime but still you might enjoy it, it has a 7.9 average rating on MAL (though there seems to be a good few negative reviews. It's very heavy on gore but it's that silly exploding blood-bag kind of gore, almost every episode has generic soldiers bursting into red paste upon contact with the main character's invisible razor hands. To me it all just screamed tryhard edgy-for-the-sake-of-being-edgy bullshit that accidentally tricked young teens into thinking because it had violent themes that meant it was deep and meaningful . The soundtrack just pissed me off too, far too pompous for the scenes it's playing over. At one point two children for no reason decide to beat a puppy to death, so that another bystander character can witness it and be traumatized and apparently thus motivated to slay another few dozen bloodbags.
Some people love the story to it even though it's dumb and contrived as shit. The entire show just seems so shallow and superficial in every aspect. But again go ahead and watch it if you think it might be good, I think most people here are more willing to forgive utterly vapid bullshit in anime than I am.
