Mirai Nikki – 21

Uryuu will wait until Yukiteru kills Eleventh, but if he fails, she’ll kill him to avenge Nishijima. He manages to get the vault door where Eleventh is hiding open, but there is a second door he can’t open. Uryuu takes a shot at Yukiteru, but misses, and is losing blood fast. Yuki uses noise from his phone to misdirect her, then shoots her gun away. Dying, she admitting she likes Yukiteru and understands his situation, so when her heart stops, it sets off a bomb.

It doesn’t break through, but by then, Yuno has arrived, with access to the vault. Only Eighth stands in Yukiteru’s way, but Deus is starting to die, and may take the world with him. Akise, who is protecting Eighth for the moment, travels with her to the cathedral and asks if a god will really be able to fix everything bad that’s happened.

The pursuit of Eleventh gets pretty ridiculous – I mean, two bank vaults? Really? – and it costs the lives of Nishijima, Uryuu, and a lot of armed guards standing around while Yuno guts them. But Yuno gets him, using Yuno’s Gasai Bank access code to open the vault. But wait, if she’s not the real Gasai Yuno, how did she have the code? Was it just an illusion, as he thought when he saw her in there? Or is Eleventh really dead? We didn’t see him implode like Uryuu, after all. If he isn’t, that’s one more person Yukiteru has to kill to gain godhood, and he – and the series – are running out of time.

Huge mechanical orbs are apparating all over the city, threatening to swallow up everything (and at the pace they’re growing, we’d estimate it would only take a day or so to do so). Naturally, that pace will be slowed for dramatic effect, but Akise Aru’s question looms: how much power will the diary holder who wins actually hold? Was this all just a boondoggle so Deus could dump the world onto some other poor sap? Also surprisingly still up in the air: whether Yuno will really let Yuki kill her.

  1. Could a god revive dead people? The obvious answer is yes but Mirai Nikki, Akise asks a question similar to my question. What do you think? Does Akise has a point in asking or is he being overly concerned?

    1. We wouldn’t put it past either Deus or especially Mur Mur to be hiding something from the diary holders. It could be a monkey paw type situation: yeah, you get to wish for whatever you want, but nothing you wish for will ever go the way you intended. Akise may be concerned – as we are – that Yukiteru may be getting his hopes up, and abandoning his morals (by killing people) may be too high a price to pay for what he gets…if he wins.
