If I recall correctly Yukki actually commits suicide instead with Yuno except Yuno didn't actually swallow the pills and shes like OMGWTF when she finds out Yukki actually did take them.

also I think that's supposed to be a romeo and juliet reference.

I'm not exactly sure who won considering the circumstances, but just so we can continue, Grain, go ahead.

It only has one OP. Game participants have consistently neglected to type song names for anime that lack multiple songs, and there have been no arguments in the past (to the best of my memory.) I've twice urged people to write the song names, because it makes recording rounds inconvenient for me, and it is technically against the rules:

To Grain's chagrin, this rule is generally relaxed: if your answer is unambiguous (e.g. "Is it the OP to [an anime with only 1 OP]?"), it's usually accepted.

I feel that I'm used to it now. At least, if I relax the rule when I myself ask a question, I still know which song I'm talking about.

I give away this round. It may be taken by anyone who hasn't hosted in the past 5 rounds.

If I may be so presumptuous as to comment:

Nobody explicitly asked if the song was an OP - I surmise that we just assumed it was, based on the hint referring to the opening visuals. Therefore, Grain, by not specifying whether you were referring to the OVA or the TV series, your answer is technically ambiguous. I would give this round to Poke for recording purposes. (Since it would technically be Poke's prerogative to hand the round to you anyway, your call to leave the round open still stands.)

That's just how I interpreted this round - feel free to challenge this point if needed.

The Spoiler Opening question made the fact that it's an OP implicit. I actually didn't even know that an OVA existed. Even if I had known, since the OVA doesn't have an opening song, the OVA would have been implicitly excluded from my question.

Addendum:

[down]Pyrite is correct. Skimming Spoiler Opening reveals that it also has ending examples, so my question technically allowed the opening and ending of Mirai Nikki. It's in plain sight:

Mirai Nikki's opening definitely counts, as does it's closing, which reveals the identities of the diary holders and Akise especially Akise, albeit in shady lighting. That said, this is probably more for manga readers than those who just watch the anime.

This is a great reason for me to continue nagging people to type the song names.

Sorry, Grain, but I tend to nitpick too much for my own good. Bear with me for a bit?

The hint referred to the visuals and doesn't say anything about the opening theme song. (I will concede that the hint implies that opening credits exist.) One could easily use the ending theme from an anime with a Spoiler Opening to throw the players off.

Also, for what it's worth, the OVA is listed on ANN.

Pokenatic wins.

I've twice urged people to write the song names, because it makes recording rounds inconvenient for me, and it is technically against the rules:

The looseness of rule 2 is only an inconvenience for me when rule 8 is also neglected. Rule 8 is the big kahuna; this confusion could have been avoided if Edmania had stated who'd won the round. I'm happy that this happened.

Well if Grain says that I won and he doesn't want to host the next round, I might as well go.

Was the anime made in the 1960's?

Was the anime set in the 1960's?

Do any of the characters make the peace sign at some point in the anime?

Does "smoof" have anything to do with this round at all? No. I just added that in because "Make smoof, not war" came to mind when I was thinking up a hint.

I should probably catch up with current anime to stay in the game (or read their pages a little more)... but I make it a point to only watch completed series. My loss, I guess.
