Nyaruko is an Outer God....those make Great Old Ones look like microscopic things compared to them.

You people just go read Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror for the official take on what a sexual union between and elder god and a human can result in.

Not the brother, but another spawn of Yog-Sothoth and another woman.

Nyarko 12 - PARADISE LOST

Even if the first half of the episode was a little clipshow-y, it did a wonderful job with atmosphere. The birds, the clouds, the layer of gray coating everything. It was exactly the kind of thing Lovecraft would've liked. As this show is wont to do, of course it ends on an anticlimax, done for the love of eroge. (I completely understand the villains' motivations. I, myself, have a pretty sizable backlog of ges of the ero nature. Though exploiting Ghuta to do it is kinda dickish.) It did make for an awesome final battle, with everyone playing a role in the proceedings, save for Yoichi and Tamao.

Ghuta even ended up joining Mahiro's harem by the end.

I've been saying it since the first week, but I absoloutely love this show, for many of the same reasons I love Akibaranger. It mocks and celebrates nerd culture at the same time, mostly through having a plot simple enough that it can be anything, while also being ridiculous in and of itself. (Chtulu Mythos + love comedy. Japan, don't stop doing what you do.) In a lot of ways, it reminds me of the first season of Hayate no Gotoku (ie. my favorite season), and probably has the highest density of toku references I've seen in any anime. The love for Kamen Rider that permeates through this program is truly admirable.

It also had just about every form of relationship imaginable, all played for laughs, and some wonderful comedic timing. I am and will continue to be a big KuuNyaru fan, but Mahiro/Nyarko actually isn't too bad. Kana Asumi proved she can be as manic as anyone else in the VA scene - everyone brought in a good performance.

I will wait for the day when a second season is announced, because Nyarko and friends will always be at the top of my priority list.

There's not much to say, other than that Xebec surprised me. It's not a deep show, but the humor was mostly right, and they managed to squeeze in some sort of plot. The situation was never dire enough to warrant the constant cliffhangers, but that was a nice technique to keep me watching to see how anticlimactic things turn out to be. The last episode even had a suitable final boss, and epilogue plot.

8/10. I was thinking 7, but the finale was too good for that.

I loved the first six episodes of the show to death. Starting with Ep. 7, the growing success of the romance kind of took hold like a tumor of seriousness, turning Mahiro from a guy bewildered and swamped by the craziness around him into just another tsundere that happened to be male. Those antics caused me to start actively disliking Nyarko, which is not good when she's the center of the humor (and also made Kuuko and the Trap in Yellow seem less funny in their pursuit of Nyarko and Mahiro, respectively, and more just sad and pathetic).

...I guess I just don't want romantic hijinks in my comedy? Or maybe it's because I've seen too many "I will pursue you until you give in! 'No' just means 'try harder'!" types to find them appealing when it's taken at all seriously...

The finale, though, definitely brought things back up a notch, with an appropriately anticlimactic-yet-somehow-interesting final boss, some poignancy, and more humor. I'd be happy to see a second season, though less loli and more Atoko would be my cast preference. I think I shall now start shipping Mahiro with Shanta-kun, now that he has declared his love!
