"What Future Diary accomplished in its first collection was nothing short of brilliant. It took the survival game of Battle Royale and mixed it with the killer hook of Eden of the East and made it into one of the most unique anime series in recent memory. Despite that it did have some pacing issues here and there, but they were largely overshadowed by how very good everything else was.
With the second collection of the series, Future Diary tops itself in every single way. It takes the stakes of the first part and throws them out the window, only to quickly replace them with even higher stakes and even more insane action to go along with it. It improves upon the weaker areas of the first part and takes it to new heights. Future Diary’s second part is the culmination of the potential the series has shown from the very beginning and it all leads to one hell of an epic conclusion."
