Our main character is Amano Yukiteru or called Yuki. He has the character of an asocial person and doesn’t easily get along with others. He spent most of his time writing diaries on his cell phone. He also has imaginary friends, Deus Ex Machina, the God of space and time also with his assistant Muru Muru. One day, Yuki is surprised that his normal day will forever be changed. Now he is in a survival game with his cell phone or special diary that will become his power.

Our Yuki has the ability to predict the future for up to ninety days. That day, Yuki was shocked that everything that happened during the day was already written on his phone. Turns out his imaginary friends were real Gods and planned this game consisting of 12 people. All of them are now in the contest of the death race. They must kill one another in order to survive and the winner will be the heir of Deus Ex Machina and prevent the apocalypse.

To think of the next sequel of Future Diary or Future Diary Season 2, it was imagination. In the first season alone, this anime was wrapped in a good ending. Maybe a lot of fans were disappointed in the last episode where there was a cliffhanger. But actually, the studio already released the OVA episode where the ending was explained beautifully.

The first season already has an incomplete ending and actually, we don’t think there is an urgent need for more seasons. But who knows if there is sudden booming demand from fans that still want to watch their favorite anime from 10 years ago, the studio might reconsider it.

Another thing to consider is that the mangaka, Sakae Esuno, was not produced any more episodes of Mirai Nikki or Future Diary. So Studio Asread has no source material for the upcoming Future Diary Season 2. As we also mentioned earlier, the twelve manga volumes already wrapped in the good ending

Actually, to find Future Diary Season 2 on our screen it looks like it has a small percentage. Studio Asread (ARIFURETA) is yet to renew the second season, so it’s currently hard to predict a release date. However, if the studio decides to produce a sequel or a reboot series, it might take a few years to premiere. Hence, any new episodes of Mirai Nikki Season 2 may not hit the screens anytime before late 2022 or early 2023. We will update this article once the official date is announced.

So, the only thing that we can do is beg the mangaka for next season or rewatch the Future Diary Season 1 for now.
