Future Diary, or better known by the original Japanese title Mirai Nikki, is a 2011 anime series based on the manga of the same name written by Sakae Esuno. Yukiteru Amano lives in his world and largely dispenses with contacts with his classmates. His only hobby is keeping a diary of all everyday events on his cell phone. His only friend, a god named Deus Ex Machina, only exists in Yuki's imagination. Yuki's life goes crazy when he realizes that his cell phone diary is predicting the future. The enthusiasm quickly fades when his classmate Yuno explains that she too is the owner of a future diary. Yuki's imaginary friend Deus Ex Machina is more real than expected and is planning a cruel game: twelve participants with diaries that predict the future. Twelve people who kill each other. Because in the end, only one can win.
The following weapons were used in the anime series Future Diary:
Smith & Wesson Model 37
The standard revolver for the Japanese police is Smith & Wesson Model 37 Airweight, which resembles the Tanaka airsoft model. It is used by Chief inspector Keigo Kurusu in Ep. 02 "Contract Terms", Ep. 09 "Blocking Calls", and Ep. 11 "Service Terminated". Young police officer Masumi Nishijima uses one of these revolvers in Ep. 10 "Family Plan" against Number 3. Many other police officers in the eleventh episode make use of their revolvers in the Sakurami police station. In the same episode, Yuno and Yukiteru get in control of some Model 37s. They both also use these revolvers in Ep. 12 "No Service Area". The revolvers are also used in Ep. 19 "Clear Data" by Masumi Nishijima and Yukiteru. Officer Nishijima is last seen with his revolver in Ep. 20 "Transfer Data". The last use of the revolver by Yukiter is in Ep. 22 "Disconnect".

Bolt Action rifle
Five guns can be seen in Ep. 26 "Format", hanging on an apartment's wall. A scoped rifle with left-handed bolt handle is seen among it. Considering the fact that bolt action rifles need two handed operators, even a left-handed bolt handle is useless for one-armed Minene.
