Future Diary/Mirai Nikki Gets New Redial Manga/Anime Episode

Manga/DVD from creator Sakae Esuno, TV anime writer Katsuhiko Takayama in late July

An advertising flyer has revealed that a brand-new Future Diary Redial (Mirai Nikki Redial) manga volume will arrive in Japan late next July, and the volume will bundle a new original anime DVD. Original manga creator Sakae Esuno created the plot for this new project, and Katsuhiko Takayama, the head scriptwriter for the Future Diary anime series, wrote the original scenario. The bundle will include the new manga story, a collection of designs for the anime, the new anime which will run about 25 minutes long, and a tall case to hold everything with an exclusive jacket illustration.

Sakae Esuno's original manga has sold 4 million copies and inspired both a video anime project and a television anime series which premiered last year. Tokyopop published 10 of the 12 manga volumes before shutting down its North American publishing operations last year.

Funimation and the video-streaming service Niconico streamed the television anime series as it aired in Japan. A live-action television adaptation premiered this past April.

The story of Future Diary Redial is set in the third universe, where Yuno Gasai has recovered her memories and goes to meet Yukiteru Amano.
