That's why saying that Hastur's character in this anime will have to be male because it happened to be given a male title in the mythos is foolish. Its gender will be whatever the series' creator wants it to be. The title of "king" is irrelevant.

I'm willing to do so myself, but there's this voice whispering at the back of my mind telling me to NOT take anything a thing named Nyarlathothep at face value. :P

That's a separate discussion from the use of titles in non-English-speaking countries.

The use of titles in non-English countries is not what was being argued. The original statement was that the character of Hastur in the anime had to be male because that creature was, at one point in the mythos, referred to as "king." That is the point we are arguing is foolish. Attempting to sidetrack us on to a different discussion altogether will not change the inherent foolishness of that statement.

Saber is your pet but it is up to her to decide whether or not to follow you, objection overruled.

You know, somehow hearing Norio Wakamoto do his thing... Fits. I always imagined Nyarly to be a large ham in some of its incarnations anyway.

Sanity save... FAILED DUE TO AWESOME.

All I can say is that I've never felt such sympathy for a "monster" getting beaten like I did in the first episode here . I mean damn some brutal attacks delivered there.

Adorable character designs, and very funny first episode. It's been quite some time since Mythos worked as a naming basis, I can only recall Demonbane

Also nice reference to the insanity check from the table-top

- Anna Jagiellon - King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania,
- Maria Theresa of Austria, while she was able to be crowned as Empress or Queen of most of her lands, she is crowed as King of Hungary in 1741.
- Irene of Athens, she often called herself "Basileus" (Emperor), rather than "Basilissa" (Empress).
- Lư Chiêu Hoàng, alway is claimed as Emperor of Dai Viet (Viet Nam) rather than Empress.
v.v....

Polish, Lithuanian, German (using Latin), and Byzantine Greek examples above are the same as English, there are distinct words separating male from female kings, emperors, etc.

Also the Japanese when using foreign words they occasionally ignore the gender for obvious reasons.

While I still think Hasta as a reverse trap, I wonder how anyone would translate this Japanese quote.
Spoiler for Hasta's actual gender:


Everytime I look at feminine guys like Hasta, it's hard to identify which gender he is, especially if he is voiced by a girl (there's some exceptions in it). If he is voiced by a male, I could easily classifies him as a male. Since Rie Kugimiya is pretty much typecasted as tsundere, her male roles only contain a little amount for her. The only reverse trap (for the moment) she ever voiced is Kaoru from Ladies Versus Butlers!, which is also animated by Xebec.

While I feel it is important not to succumb to hyperbole, I think it's safe to say that this is the greatest anything to happened anywhere, ever.

It's incredibly hilarious having an image of the VA (from watching the Working! specials) and hearing her say things like 'I'm so embarrassed i might just get pregnant'
