Haiyore! Nyaruko-san – 01: GO MADDDDDDD

I expected some more chaotic attire...

I do not know what it is about this show but I find myself inexorably compelled to try and spread the gospel of the Outer Gods. While Mahrio seems like a typical loser harem animu male, it is with good reason he does not dare consummate his relationship with his strange new tenant who has enough omniscient powers to hack his Facebook account and enough combat prowess to turn a rock and a crow bar into weapons of mass and messy destruction. Those who doubt the power of Nyarlathotep are foolish for she has many guises and as Herald of the Gods, her presence on Earth portents the end of times. Thankfully the duplicitous slander of non-believers is patently false and Nyarlathotep is here not to destroy us but to save us all to ensure the steady supply of the entertainment goods that the Outer Gods demand as just tribute.

The Nightgaunt infestation will soon be a thing of the past as Crawling Chaos takes this task of their extermination seriously. I understand why Mahiro cannot bear to see Nyaroko’s prowess with kick, rock, and crow bar, for the truth of her methods are terrible to know and behold. Mahiro is still fighting a losing battle though no matter what he does to try and preserve his sanity points he will lose them all in good time. He has attracted the attentions of a being whose mind is far greater than his own, his struggles against her affections are ultimately futile for reality will warp and conform to her desires.

Nyaruko is not going for SHOW OF THE YEAR but it’s great to have a show that oozes so much nerd that it never seems to have a dull tentacle in it’s amorphous mass. Bet it masked riders, Pokemon, Lovecraft, and all things nerd Nyarlathotep is here to being the gospel of nerd consumerism. Yes the censors will have to be avoided but the fact is she need to preserve our sanity points for multiple season as she cannot simply burn out every cultist she claims with the terrifying truth. When and if Mahiro’s parents return they better not ask too many questions, for their son is as good as hers. One should never try and get between the Gods and their goals. If my warped instincts are correct then this show can do no wrong or my real name isn’t Jervas Dudley and I am a Dagon. Still this show does require a certain level of nerd to full comprehend and if nothing else it’s a good time to re-read some old favorites because it seems that the staff has gone MAD from reading the Necronomicon one too many times.

She came out of Egypt...

It was high time I had an honorable order to join.

Apparently that is her least favorite form.

You are fine the way you are now...pay him no mind your worship.

I still have some of those lying around, even had colored ones for special rolls.

I guess that investigator got it wrong, I bet he paid for that one.

Are you by chance honored members of the the Jersey Club as well?

St. Patrick appreciates the sentiment but how does a lowly Saint help a God?

Google told her everything.

This happens more often than you'd think.

I look forward to your choice of motorcycle your worship.

And HOW!

Please accept this humble offering from the peons who work here.

It's more lucrative than cocaine.

Nyaruko's first sermon.

I take it she has been here for a long time...eons even.

Yes according to Patrick this too is love.

This non-Euclidean rune makes my head hurt...

She hit so hard I felt it.

This is so much better than lasers and beams.

See even Gods themselves think confessing early and often is a good idea.

She burns with the fires of yuri passion.

I guess Miskatonic University did not deem it necessary to start a Japanese branch...

I love it when a cult comes together...

And Dagon, and the language of Lomar.

Meaning she could totally run Mahiro down if he ever tried to escape.

I see that she has created a cult of love.

Tears of the Heavens...

Cultists do come in handy ever once in a while...

Dangerous to him or dangerous to you...

I knew there was a reason I don't eat BLTs.

That is some dream she is having...

You do not get points for being succinct.

Fastball or change-up?

Nyarlathotep may have come from Egypt but she was also a Roman Emperor, likely Augustus.

Nothing says business like a crow bar.

She briefly possessed a cultist named Katsura once, she was praying for revenge during some series...I think it was called School Days...

Sanity Points? Who needs 'em?

One does not trifle with the affections of the Gods...

Well at least she isn't going to eat you because why else would she pass up a three course meal?

You can't fight destiny but you can still plead for her to take a form that makes it less painful and ensure you bend the right way...

    No SAN points left after watching this show. Also, Fork Of Real Kickass + 10.

    The show lives up to the main trait of Nyarlahothep – Chaos. Slowly seducing you before taking your insanity (and virginity).

      Well I think that the Unspeakable Bar gives a better modifier. Mahiro will need a new character sheet by the times he’s done with Episode 2.

        What happens if you start out with negative sanity to begin with? Do you hit -256 and then warp around to 256? :P Because I’m heading that way.

    Best anime of this season!? Just kidding…I did find Nyaruko-san to be a lot of fun from the moment you start the episode to the very end it never stops throwing random laughs at you, but I can see why some might throw this series to the side due to Nyaruko’s super hyper active personality…then again that was the selling point for me just watching and listening to her talk was the best! I guess it helps to have that all important Miya voice from Amagami SS?

    Overall fun and hilarious series! I need more <3

      Not the best but there will be a legion of cultists after it finishes airing and there will be riots in the streets for more. It’s not for everyone but it is definitely for people who are familiar with losing sanity points.

      Are you ready to get into the negatives bro? The rules themselves will warp to her will.

        My SAN will hit negatives once The Trap in Yellow shows up…

    I am so glad to find you wrote a blog on this anime.
    Unlike other ecchi anime, the protagonist in this anime has a legitimate reason not jump on her. He might lose his dick. LOL.
    The era of Suzumiya Haruhi is over. Now then, let’s pray to our new goddess, Nyarlathotep!!

      Yeah it is a harem series, but who am I to deny the coming of the Gods? I for one embrace the Crawling Chaos as a true believer should. Mahiro is not typical, and Nyaruko is not your average harem member…she is positively divine.

    Every time I hear Nyarlathotep I think of the Demonbane visual novel. *shivers*

      So how did your last sanity roll go?

    I totally dug seeing that Japanese language Call of Cthulhu character sheet, and the percential dice.

    I feel so totally sorry for the noobs that have no clue about the Mythos. For this long time fan of both that and all stripes of anime, this was a match that dances to the pipes and drums of Azathoth.

    As a long time player of Chaosium’s fine RPG (and a new rules set for Savage Worlds….Realms of Cthulhu), my characters have quite the rep for going insane early, and slowly killing most of the party.

    Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to be in Mahiro’s tub…..shoes.

      Well if nothing else it is a good time to find out about the Chaosium RPGs and read the books for FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE. I don’t think all this fun should be for a few. Nyarlathotep wants her cult to grow into a large crawling mass of humans.

    I like how me and a couple of guys who are running a Call of Cthulu campaign was watching this one day for break and laughed our @$$es off. Our GM joked about each time we finish an episode, we have to make an insanity check and each one we lose from this show is recorded and by the time anybody reaches 0, our GM takes our character and the percentage we lost from it is how much INSANE MMMMOOOOOEEEEEEE we have in our system. Also, if we lose 5 or more from this show at a time, we have the insane condition of “SOOOOO MUCH MMMOOOOOEEEEEE AAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHHA” (yes that is the name of it).

      Always good to hear that a GM is willing to have fun with a series and heed the call of the gods…

    Kamen Rider Saga (KR Kiva), Kamen Rider Den-O, Kamen Rider Kabuto, Kamen Rider Black, Ultraman Kaijuu capsule, Dijeh (Gundam Z), Zakrello (Gundam), Pokemon… Nyarlathotep is a tokusatsu otaku, mostly.

      As such we of the her Cult must recover these sacred relics for her.

    And to think i started re-reading the lovecraft novels like 3 months ago. I’m going to loose my sanity points twice as fast now. :/
