Future Diary (Mirai Nikki)

Mirai Nikki is a great action/mystery manga.Mirai Nikki, otherwise known as Future Diary is a great mystery/action manga- i would give it a 10/10 easily, hands down :D

There are 59 chapters total, each chapter about 30 pages or so

The plot revolves around the protagonist, Yukiteru ( Yuki) , a fourteen year old boy who views himself as a bystander and records everything he sees in his cellphone, calling it his diary-
He doesn't have any friends and only speaks with his imaginary friends- Deus Ex Machina is one of them; Deus controls time and space manipulation-
but little does Yuki know that his imaginary friend, Deus is REAL and Deus invents a survival game.  Deus chooses 13 diary holders with cellphones, identities hidden and all- and gives them each the power to see the future within their cell phone diaries. It's pretty awesome, actually-
Also, whoever wins the survival game becomes 'God' of time and space

The diary holders involve a stalker girl who is obsessed with Yuki, a terrorist, a police officer, two lovers, and a few others from completely different backgrounds.
There is plenty of drama, action, and some comedy as well-

The plot is solid and sticks to the point, the characters quickly grow on you and on top of that, the art is awesome as well- this is one of those few excellent masterpieces in the history of anime
