Mirai Nikki episode 26 FINAL EPISODE

XO The stores are trying to tempt me. They know I have a weakness for sales and deals. I can have 32893 boxes of cereal in my cabinet but if they are 50 cents off at the store I need to buy more. Or if discount stores magically start having some of my favorite collectables at 65 percent off I have to get them all. Even if I am trying to save money for Japan and anime conventions and crazy adult things like bills. Even if the husband (jokingly) says well you would save 100 percent if you didn’t buy them at all.

It is like they want me to fail.

Photobucket

Ready to blast the logic out of your brain?

So while I contemplate going to every single discount store tomorrow and spending even more money it is time to talk about the failure that is Yuki’s life. Ah yes the conclusion to Mirai Nikki episode 26. Me thinks it would have been better had episodes 25 and 26 aired together, like with Madoka. But in any event spoilers for….err…happy people?

Well that much is obvious Yuki.

Episode Summary: Yuki is having a magical day in Not Real World. He is finally going to see the stars with his mom and dad. But something doesn’t seem right. Oh yes he really is trapped in a giant sphere on top of his now broken school. MurMur cackles to herself that all is going well. She summons 3rd Yuno’s dad so she can glue him back together. Wouldn’t want to ruin that space time continuum. With that done all Yuno has to do is kill 3rd Yuno and all will be well. 3rd Yuno ends up waking up and is like what is going on? Yuno conceals herself and tells 3rd Yuno she knows her life and how said it is and she can end her suffering. 3rd Yuno says that she knows her parents love her deep down and if she just waits one day they will recognize her feelings. Yuno is like yeah I am killing you and finding 3rd Yuki.

Smart Yuno. Trying to make 3rd Yuno kill herself. I see what you are doing.

While this is going on 3rd Keigo has arrived with 3rd Nishijima and 3rd Yuno’s mom. 3rd Nishijima quickly makes himself useless by finding Minene who is NOT dead. Inside the sphere Yuki is slowly realizing something is wrong and that he needs to leave. MurMur is freaking out because there are so many changes to the space time continuum NONE of the Diary Users are going to end up Diary Users. They are all shown being affected by the time traveling crazies and/or explosion in town. The biggest change would be 11th learning he dies in the game and that eventually the winner will go on to NOT become god. 11th quickly tells Deus who is against the games now. Despite all this Yuno is still crazy so a stabbing she will go. Daddy Yuno shields 3rd Yuno from the attack and Mommy Yuno arrives on the scene. The family reconnects during this horrible moment which touches Yuno is horrible and positive ways. She decides that she is going to kill them all and 3rd Keigo fires at Yuno. Only Yuki’s fake parents have given him enough support that he can break free from the sphere with a little help from…MurMur? Two MurMurs?

Photobucket

The 438473th time your mom locked you up in the cage?

The new MurMur reveals herself to be number 2 (because they are numbered in the event of time travel I guess….) while the one with Yuno is revealed to be number 1. In any event Yuno is not shot and Yuki holds her close. He says he is going to save her and Yuno needs to stab him. Yuki says he has killed too many people and he wants Yuno to go back to the 2nd world and have a place for herself. Yuno contemplates this….and stabs herself. Yuki is like NOOO I LOVE YOU and she says kiss me you silly fool. She dies and 2nd MurMur declares Yuki the winner. She quickly takes him back to the second world which is falling apart. Yuki is god of nothing yay! Back in the 3rd world everyone is having the best life ever. Especially Minene who has married (or at least procreated) with 3rd Nishijima who is trying to arrest 3rd Minene. Everyone is much better off with the whole not being dead thing. Well maybe not high school teacher dude who is in jail but everyone else is doing fine. Even Akise is in the 3rd world, acting as some kind of space time continuum….spy or something. 3rd Yuno is seen with her friends showing off happy pictures of her family. In the background 3rd Yuki is walking with his family and momma look alike girlfriend. 3rd Yuno thinks something is missing from her life but can’t put her finger on it. Back in the 2nd world it has been 10,000 years and there is nothing. Yuki has no motivation to do anything, make a world without his Yuno. 2nd MurMur is bored to tears. Then after all that time Yuki’s phone changes, saying that Yuno is coming to see him. The world….cracks and then….THE END!

Well well well. Mirai Nikki is finally over. Some people are happy, some people dropped this 3829 episodes ago, and apparently some people are crying. I think I have a lot of feeling about this episode and the series overall so bear with me if things get wordy. Or take an ice cream break halfway through. Whatever works. XD

Okay so Yuki chillin in his sphere world. I wonder if a great deal of time passed by. That could explain why Yuki magically forgot about Yuno. Like last episode he was like NOOOO don’t leave me but I assumed he was playing during breakfast time when he was crying about some girl. Nope turns out he really did forget about Yuno. I guess when one is living out an entire world in a football shaped sphere it is crazy to ask how Yuki forgot about Yuno.

Photobucket

Don't go towards the light Yuki! Stay here! You are going to be stuck somewhere for eternity it might as well be here.

Now maybe I am not a hopeless romantic who loves a crazy person. But maybe…..just maybe Yuki was better off in that world. XD One could argue he only saved Yuno and her parents by leaving that sphere so….you know…maybe Yuki could have just lived with his fake family in the fake world. He had suffered enough at the hands of Yuno, maybe he had paid his dues. Why would he want to marry Yuno anyway? Did he not do ANY self-reflection with Yuno’s words on how they really didn’t love each other? Guess not, he was too busy eating perfect breakfasts.

Photobucket

Good thing the one change in the space time continuum has been changed. THE ONE CHANGE!

But before Yuki broke out of perfect sphere Yuno had to have some more insane moments. I mean….did I need to say Yuno had an insane moment? Probably not. Maybe I should have said MurMur had a stupid moment. Of course her entire thinking that the space time continuum would be RUINED if 3rd Yuno’s Dad died was stupid. Because hello who cares where Dad dies if Yuno is going to kill 3rd Yuno? It would probably be better if he died somewhere else so Yuki wouldn’t find the body. So maybe MurMur is doing a lot of stupid things, like siding with Yuno in the first place. But MurMur bringing the Dad there to heal him was special. Like you couldn’t have healed him at the home?

I am going to put aside the fact that 3rd Yuno’s mom being in the police car with Keigo was beyond….special. We are just going to pretend she is so crazy she insisted on coming to a disaster area in case her husband happened to be there. Hey it could happen. Turns out she was RIGHT but yeah she returns home to find a blood trail and her daughter and husband missing. Obviously the first place she should look is the middle school with a rather large hole in it. That is obviously the first place she should look. Duh.

Photobucket

I am pretty sure Yuki found you in a cage. Just saying.

3rd Yuno was….I don’t know. She was looking pretty weak and she had been kidnapped by crazy people. So when she tells Yuno that she doesn’t have a sad life and she wasn’t suffering CLEARLY she wasn’t in the best state of mind. Almost like 3rd Yuno was crazy and insane but on a different level than Yuno. She probably has the same mindset many abused kids have, that things are going to get better and deep down Mommy and Daddy still love me. Which is sad and maybe I shouldn’t call her insane. But Yuno understood how this was all false thinking and she would probably know better than anyone else right? Even if Yuno is unreliable because she is crazy I felt bad for 3rd Yuno. Of course she would have ended up being Yuno down the road but you got to feel bad for someone in that situation right?

Maybe that was the whole point of everything. To paint Yuno as this crazy psychopath but once we understood her reasons…….no locking Yuki up with a pee jar was still bad. Yeah a lot of stuff that Yuno did was crazy but if everyone who ended up abused turned into Yuno the world would be a scary place. Or everyone would be dead. I don’t know, I guess I have mixed feelings about this. We want adults to be responsible for their behaviors even if they were abused in their childhood. Yuno was a teenager who should have known right from wrong but was too broken. I don’t know I don’t know. Yuno is very polarizing isn’t she?

Photobucket

So kids if your parents are treating you like crap just put yourself in mortal danger and everything will work out! The more you know....

Okay so that was all leading up to 3rd Yuno’s family reunion and how Yuno handled it. Now even though I just went on and on about how Yuno SHOULDN’T be a crazy person…I think seeing that heartwarming scene might have made me snap. Like OH all I had to do was be in danger (from someone ELSE since her parents were constantly putting/leaving her in danger) and my parents would have loved me too and I wouldn’t have to do all this?! Yeah that might have been too much for poor Yuno to handle. The mother should have loved Yuno all along but I guess she just needed something super horrible to happen to her to see the error of her ways. And if someone else was putting his daughter in danger, not his wife, then daddy could step in and not be the bad guy yes? So while this was all sweet and lovely, that 3rd Yuno and her family reuniting because of some brief kidnapping and stabbing I can see why Yuno went all WELL DIE THEN!

I have no idea why but I wasn’t expecting another MurMur. I really had no idea what I thought that Band-Aid on her head was. Sometimes anime characters just have Band-Aids for entire series and that is how it works. Maybe I thought MurMur killed MurMur 2? I don’t know. But I thought Yuki was going to throw himself in front of Keigo’s bullet and it was going to be a NOOOO Yuki moment. I didn’t expect that. But it would have been nice to see demon MurMur verses demon MurMur 2. XD Although….what did happen to MurMur….

Photobucket

Have you seen the 2nd world? No....okay keep on talking.

Yuki and Yuno had a heart to heart while 3rd Yuno and her family watch on IN TERROR! Hopefully they got their memories erased or something by Akise because this was scarring for life. In any event Yuki didn’t say anything real dramatic or out of character. He basically said what we were expecting. Kill me Yuno and go back to the 2nd world. Now after the fact Yuki probably would not have wished that on Yuno but at the time he thought he was saving her. Or maybe he thought he was saving 3rd Yuno. What matters is that Yuki loves Yuno for some reason and wants her to be happy.

Now….maybe…this was not a good thing to suggest. Yuno is crazy and wants to be with any Yuki. Well she picks 2nd Yuki in the end but five seconds ago she wanted to be with 3rd Yuki. Which… I can almost understand since I think all of these people are basically the same. Or would have been since they went back in time 2 years and not a few months like last time. But putting that all aside Yuki wants to die for Yuno and her to go back to the 2nd world. So….what is stopping her from killing Yuki and staying put? Did you say nothing? Okay then you were paying attention too.

Not that it matters since Yuno just stabbed herself. Well she has stabbed herself before and I thought it would take it more than one stab wound to take out Yuno. Like I thought Homura and her time traveling self would have to use the Navy Ships on her or something. But yes Yuno didn’t do the obvious and killed herself. Which might have been for the best. She had been through a lot, she came to the conclusion she loved Yuki, and basically she has nothing left to live for. Maybe she could have pointed out to Yuki she killed WAY more people than Yuki so really she deserved to die but maybe that was too obvious to say. The point is Yuno has done most of the hard work/dirty work this season so maybe she should be the one to rest in peace.

Photobucket

Yuno has survived so much worse. I doubt she died in 5 seconds. She and Minene are cockroaches!

I love how Yuki wasn’t even given 5 seconds to grieve Yuno’s death. Like 2nd Yuno is like WINNER even though SOMEONE is still alive. Poof who cares about Yuno’s body on the ground or the extra MurMur laying around. We need to get Yuki back to the 2nd world before the 3rd world completely goes to crazy town. Oh and save the 2nd world….

Photobucket

What space time continuum!?

I should have mentioned this earlier if I wanted to go in chronological order but I didn’t want to ruin the flow of the conversation I was having with myself. But MurMur was having a bad day. She was so bugged out about Daddy Yuno bleeding to death she failed to realize Yuno ARRIVING back in time ruined everything. Yuno just wanted to kill 3rd Yuno and take her place. Yuki wanted to stop that from happening. But the act of coming back in time, way too far in the past, made everything crazy and there was no way Humpty Dumpty could be put back together again. So yeah MurMur you glue Yuno Daddy back together. Fix the school and the huge explosions while you are at it too.

Photobucket

.....Still doesn't change the fact that all of those people COULD have raped and tortured Tsubaki. Like wtf was that all about?!

Some of these deviations from the timeline I understood happening. Like Tsubaki wanted to keep her parents safe since something crazy was happening in the city. Since her parents didn’t die Tsubaki didn’t become leader of a crazy cult Reisuke didn’t lose his parents and become a crazy kid. Minene sorta helped Keigo along but that does go along with Yuno going back in time so it counts! Takao (you know the teacher with like two minutes of screen time) was too careless with his crimes, trying to take advantage of the chaos, yet Yomotsu (12th, eyeball dude) was able to catch him. Since Yomotsu actually caught a bad guy he might not have felt the need to go above and beyond in his justice life and Takao ended up in jail.

Photobucket

Now I want to know who the "new" 1st would have been.


Photobucket

You mean a deranged 5 year old wouldn't have made a good god of time and space? This game was actually a bad idea?!

Some of the Diary Users…it was a bit iffy how their future got changed. In the long run it really doesn’t matter about Marco and Ai. 12th…meh. And 10th’s was just stupid. I guess during the explosions he goes outside to check on his dogs and seeing Hinata take care of his dogs makes him love her more, to treat her like a daughter? Oh okay. But the real Diary User I had problems with is 11th. Maybe I wasn’t following along correctly (and maybe one of my lovely commentators can explain this to me) but how did 11th get the information that he was going to die in the games? Was it because due to everything changing new Diary Users were chosen with different Diaries? In any event having a Diary that predicted the end of the game was probably way too powerful and bit of a cope out to get 11th to talk Deus out of the games. Really Deus, maybe this game wasn’t a great idea in picking the next god? REALLY?! Glad it took 11th pointing out that you would get no winner to realize that. Because it was a good plan when a murderer/crazy person would be the new god.

Photobucket

MOG WTF IS THIS?! I can't unsee this and I didn't even SEE anything!

Okay so all of that was lovely. I made fun of Yuki and his I WILL SAVE EVERYONE speech. Because in the end everyone in world 3 was saved. Deus listened to crybaby 11th and decided to go with another way in deciding who would take over for him (which turns out….was to pick TWO insane killers later down the line). So that means NONE of the Diary Users died. 3rd Yuno doesn’t become crazy and 3rd Yuki gets to date a girl who looks just like his mom. For some reason the dad is still in the picture. Not sure how that happened. Guess 11th and his DATES (poke out my eyes) with 8th were keeping him too busy to be a loan shark? No idea. Oh and Akise, who only existed to make sure the game went okay (yeah like that worked) was alive too. Only now to make sure the space time continuum was fixed or something. So while Yuno left the 1st world to rot (didn’t see anyone travel back there to check on things) and the 2nd world ended up in black swirls she actually succeeded in making a version of the world that was pretty good. So yay Yuno!

Photobucket

And you wanted to send Yuno here because...? I thought you looooooooooooooved her.

So where does this leave Yuki? Why he went back to the 2nd world. It is unclear if his indecision lead to the world to collapse into nothingness or if it was already on its way there. But in any event Yuki got to spend 10,000 years alone in nothinginess with only MurMur 2 and a manga. Oh and his cellphone that said Yuno was dead. WHAT A GREAT PRIZE! I am sure he was supposed to do something with his powers but given how many people in his life were dead and how many people died due to the black swirl Yuki would have had to start over. And since he lost the love of his life….he just sad there. With his long hair that needed to be washed and conditioned. In nothingness. For 10,000 years.

Photobucket

Starting to think Yuki should have stabbed himself.

I know this is shocking to hear but the manga ends on a crazier note. I read the last chapter because everyone was like MOG the manga was so lame. Basically almost everything is the same up until Yuki and MurMur look up at something cracking the ceiling. Because black holes of nothingness has ceilings. In the anime it just ended there, only hinting that somehow a version of Yuno stalked Yuki into nothingness. By hint I mean the cellphone SAID so and something was breaking into the nothingness. In the manga…..things go a little further into the crazy. Either way the idea that Yuno would be able to make her way back to Yuki is too insane for words. Also in the anime it was never really explained why Deus didn’t choose another god replacement right away. Yes they had more time (about two and a half years) but something would have to be done right away right?

Photobucket

Help....me...out of...these awful...clothes.

Nope instead we got…MINENE! WOOHOO! Once again she was never even thought about after she was off screen. Just Yuki is the winner because someone said so and off they went. It was like Minene was Jason or Michael Myers. Unless they shot her in the head, set her on fire, chopped her into pieces, and sent her into space DO NOT ASSUME SHE IS DEAD! Because she is not. In face she is ready and waiting to make babies with Nishijima!

Photobucket

XO How am I supposed to cheer for both of you? You can't both have Nishijima!....Oh look a flying baby.

Oh yes did I mention Minene actually got a happy ending? Because despite the fact she was trying to hammer home to Yuki these 3rd world people weren’t their people she sure hooked up with Nishijima fast! I mean…I was okay with thinking all these people are the same but she wasn’t. Yet she took Nishijima away from 3rd Minene and had herself some babies. I guess she had to explain to Nishijima why their kids could fly and why there was going to be two of her. Must be love if he could support her through all of that. So…YAY MINENE! You don’t get to be a god but being a stay at home mom to two flying kids and a cop husband is just as good right? Right.

Photobucket

And then 3rd Yuki ends up with the daughter his mom put up for adoption a year before she had Yuki. THE END!

Is that about it? I hope so because this got LONG! I feel as if I started this 4 hours ago. OH WAIT I DID! XD This series started off strong and I supported it through the many plot holes and Yuki being in love/out of love with an insane person. Clearly this was a show to tell people to be better parents OR ELSE! Or maybe that if you are the god of time and space The Hunger Games is not a good way to decide who should be the next ruler. Really it was a PSA people, nothing more. Plus Minene got to live so…be happy? XD Yeah clearly I am tired.

Eternia's comment seems to have disappeared but it was still in my email XD

Eternia's comment: Why the fuck MurMur(s) have numbers on their forehead?! 1st world, 2nd world, 3rd world, these terms' purpose is just that so we (and they) can mention specific people easier. It's not like worlds really have label on them!!

But the biggest flaw is of course, how Bacchus 3.0 can see the contents of Yukiteru 2.0's future diary?? It totally doesn't make any sense. Because of the so called explosions, Yukiteru 3.0 isn't even chosen as a diary user. If Bacchus' future diary is so powerful, then Bacchus 2.0 should know about Yuno 1.0's secret too, whined to Deus ex Machina, and cancelled the game when she has just killed Yuno 2.0.

My reply- The numbering of MurMurs was odd. Maybe because there was very little interaction with multiples of the same people the writers thought we might get confused? Because we are stupid? No idea. I mean it was cute how they explained the bandaid but pretty much unnecessary.

3rd 11th seeing the outcome of game three is completely...insane. Since I only read the last chapter I didn't see the manga explanation of this. If 3rd Yuki had his future changed (not even sure why Yuki was chosen to be in the games in the first place but you know) he might not have been a Diary User. So who was the new 1st and how could his Diary see the future? And apparently (if the pronouns are correct and not assigned for Western readers) the winner WAS 1st, a male, and he went back in time. Things are confusing and I wish to know how 11th knew the game was a bad idea this time around.

Eternia said...

Aloha.
Apparently my comment got deleted by google because it has the word 'fcuk' on it. LOL. So ridiculous. They sent me SMS because they thought my account has been hijacked by porn bot. So stupid.
>_>
Seeing the message logs of other parallel world's future diary. And knowing their result. Bacchus 3.0's future diary is REALLY omnipotent compared to Bacchus 2.0.
:-P
Of course, it has never been explained why Deus is dying. While Yukiteru who's not doing anything, crying, lying down for 10.000 years, not dying or falling apart. Or lose his sanity.

Christina said...

Eternia- I don't know if that was the real reason it disappeared. I had three other comments go poof and they didn't contain "colorful" language. In any event I am sorry. XD I vow to always rescue posts. Also...I reposted it and it didn't get deleted? X__X

If that is how it went down, that 3rd 11th saw 2nd Yuki's/1st Yuno's Diary...than that is a pretty big...problem? Mistake? I don't know truly special to say the least. Deus should have just crowned 11th (any 11th) the winner if Deus was going to give him such a powerful Diary.

Maybe Deus actually used his powers unlike Sulky Yuki. XD

Eternia said...

Riiight. Maybe your life span as a God is deducted everytime you used your God's power, he he. Now that's a reasonable explanation.

Weird. I did get message from Google:
It appears your account have been hijacked by porn ads since it has performed suspicious activity. Please change your password ASAP.
X_X

Christina said...

Eternia- Blogger or something via the internets has been deleting comments left and right. X__X Hopefully your account has not been hijacked though. I have been experience weird internet things too, like when I click on links it sends me automatically to ads. Upon the second click I get into the actual website. Of course when I try to show my husband everything looks normal and I look like a crazy person.

I just love how 2nd MurMur was like HURRY back to the second world. Because there was just so much to save. XD

Kaze no Honoo said...

Totally agree it's a crazy manga/anime full of plot holes and none sense, but for some reason, I still loved it. Maybe because it has gone so crazy that I just gave up thinking and just accept if for it's total entertainment purpose. lol.

Christina said...

Kaze no Honoo- I agree that things got...pretty dang insane. And unbelievable. Plot holes and magical bullets that picked when and where to work. I have to admit as much as I complained about Yuno it got fun...or entertaining to see how crazy she would get. Of course Yuki kept on loving her even when Yuno went berserk but still. Insanity. When it is fictional it is fun to watch.

Anthony said...

Okay, so somehow 1st Yuno stalks Yukki into nothingness after 10 millenia. But what really happens to 3rd Yuno? We supposedly see her with a keychain of 1st Murmur which I'm assuming is incarnation of 1st Murmur. So is this really 3rd Yuno? Or did 1st Yuno actually end up disposing of 3rd Yuno? Also, why did it take her so long to stalk into nothingness? I know that's easier said, but it's Yuno we're talking about.

Christina said...

Anthony- It is explained better in the manga I believe but 3rd Yuki ends up with that boring girl from his class. That leaves 3rd Yuno to be all sad and lonely. So I believe what happens is 3rd Yuno gets the memories of 1st Yuki. So basically they come the same person. It is 3rd Yuno's body that rescues Yuki but she has the memories of the entire series if that makes sense.

Anonymous said...

I'm still a little confused on how in the beginning episodes when Yuki opens the door in Yuno's house with the dead parents and her other self that she killed why everyone's diaries flashed. Like I just don't understand why they all flashed at the same time like that and Deus was said "I didn't think he could do it" or something like that. And I'm not sure if it was explained in the episodes but if it was, then I didn't understand it...xD Can someone please explain this to me? Thank you!
