Any other role-players started hammering their desks in laughter at the "Sanity Points" reference to "Call of the Cthulhu?

Spoiler for Not Safe For Work.... Sigh:

I just started watching some minutes ago. WTF! LOL at the blatant GA lineup advertising!

EDIT: Ok, I originally thought that this is just some moe-fanservice show. But it's hilarious enough for me to decide to follow it

why do i have the feeling Nyaruko-chan is playing the Main lead for a fool. We only have what she said that she is working for a galactic police force. We are talking about someone who "delights in cruelty, is deceptive and manipulative"

I've been lacking the Internets at home for a week. So, I can't start watching even if I wanted to. However, accessing via other places (like "work"), I find the opening theme to be... crazy and addictive. At least, this better be the opening.

Spoiler:


By the looks of it (and what I've read on this thread), the main character is Tsundere. Am I correct?

It could be argued that the boy, Mahiro, is a tsundere. I wouldn't call him that, though. And Nyaruko is anything but.

Not yet known, but the official site has posted release dates for six DVDs, two eps each, up to ep12. Twelve eps seems likely.

By the way, just to publicize my own season preview (link below), this was one of a (fairly large) number of shows I recommended for this season.

You'll also see a link there to a characters/seiyuus page giving pics and info for the main characters and their seiyuus.

As for tsundere, I think she's more yandere with a smile. And toward the guy himself she's all deredere, so far. Goes beyond the types, I'd say. I am sometimes reminded of Dokoro-chan, lol.

Ah ha ... tyvm for this! I somehow did not expect for than 12-13 eps, and 6 dvd's kinda leans to supporting that number.

You mean Mahiro? Kuudere would be more appropriate. Apparently he DOES warm up to his Eldritch Abomination roomie-come-bodyguard, but it's not apparent here yet.

As for the Crawling Chaos, the Black Pharaoh, the Dweller in the Darkness, the Haunter in the Dark, the CEO of the Chrysalis Corporation, well I can't claim to understand the workings of the mind of an Elder Evil/Alien/Whatever The Heck It Is, but "it" obviously wants to bone Mahiro badly. A scary proposition, actually, especially when one remembers that its true form likely has tentacles involved.

That's a much better reason than why I'm fine with the forkings: Personally, I just become confused and disoriented if Kitamura Eri is in a show and she doesn't mete out some sort of comedic abuse to another character.

Just finished watching the first episode. Dust though he may be, I'm pretty sure that HP's head just exploded, and Nyaruko LIKED it

Seriously (as much as this show ever gets anway), this has turned out much better than I had hoped. The fork got a bit annoying in the shorts-sort of a one trick pony; here it actually works. I mean, sure she's cute and all, but after watching her dismember a giant flying monster with her bare hands, the fork seems to be a reasonable, even understated, response. I'm amazed he didn't go for a flame-thrower. As long as the relationship develops some, I'm good with it. If not , back to the one trick pony and wasted potential. Heres to high hopes.

So is Nyaruko really a space cop and the cthulu mythos just some delusion people came up with to explain the creepy space people..... or is Nyaruko really the Nyarlathotep and just BSing Mahiro with the space cop excuse?? Ooooooh, the SAN points we could lose to find out!

Asking around, it seems that the former is true (as per the LNs).

But you know what? The latter is actually more fun to think about, if only for the fact that it fits Nyarly's M.O. to a T. This is the Avatar of the Outer Gods we're talking about here, who actually likes messing with poor deluded humans.

That might only mean Nyaruko-san has Mahiro around her finger, feeding him lies on a constant basis >: )

Well, all information points to her telling the truth. The other girls confirm it in the flash animated videos. Apparently, from what I've read around the internets, the idea is that Lovecraft just met a Nyarlathotepian and exaggerated the stories it told him to write horror stories.

I am reasonably confident that Nyaruko doesn't have some great evil hidden motive here. She may have some additional motives that she hasn't revealed yet, but they will be in line with and in addition to the motives she's already revealed: protecting Mahiro, beating up criminals, shopping, and having sex with Mahiro. In short, I think pretty much everything Nyaruko has told us is true, I'm just not sure that she's told us everything there is to know yet.

Two Nyarlathotepians, a Cthuga, and Atlach-Nacha. All have different perspectives and interests, yet all can independently relate histories and explanations that match up with each other. I believe the critters all mean what they say. They just don't necessarily say everything they mean.

Eh..... As far as I know, the shorts follow a slightly different story from the LN, so I can't say much..... It's like this in the LN:
