Follow TV Tropes
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.

Idiots are idiots after all, even if they're murderous.
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:
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.
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:
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.
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.

Do any of the characters smoke? Smoof = snuff?
Are there any references to 1960's pop culture in this anime?
Is the anime an adaptation?

Do any of the characters smoke? No. You obviously didn't get the pointless reference.
Are there any references to 1960's pop culture in this anime? I'd be amazed if there was.
Is the anime an adaptation? No.
*insert witty comment in relation to my signature here* Why of course,

Is the main character a:
Is the anime set in wartime or a period of revolution? Yes.
Is it a Fighting Series? No.
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.

Okay, let's see...
Not everyone watches Fairly Odd Parents, you know.

Is it a mecha anime? It has mecha, so I'll go with a yes.
Is the hint a reference to the song title? No.
Does the anime have anything to do with throwing galaxies around like humongous shuriken? No.
There was a reason why I wrote *gets slapped for stupid* you know.

Is it 'Departures ~Anata ni Okuru Ai no Uta~'?

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.
