I'm not too fussed about the forking. From what I know of Lovecraft, the human appearance is just that, a appearance. I've spent the entire episode trying to come to terms of "my imouto eldritch abomination can't be this cute human", it's jarring. Sure, you don't smack around your ally, but that thing is not a girl. Trying to bring gender into this and looking only skin deep is iffy IMO. Sure, if that thing stays as a person as understood by humans and won't drive everyone insane, it deserves respect as equal to anyone, but if it starts to bring about Armageddon then fry the damn squidlike creature.

it's like THE THING. You know this normal looking human there could turn into something nasty and you are just always cautious of it.

I agree. Her voice work here takes the spotlight. Thanks to her energetic performance, it's a fun first episode.

I am however surprised that Kitamura Eri is voicing for the male lead. I'm so used to her girly loli voice most of the time.
First time hearing her do a male role, but I think she's doing fine. Although I am more used to hearing her genki girl voice.

You would no doubt kill Ika musume just because she has tentacles and an itch for world domination :-p

At this point in time, I'm more comfortable with thinking of Nyalko as an "it" rather than a "she", in much the same way as Saya from Saya no Uta is not really a cute green-haired girl.

Ignoring the fact that this is a comedy, and that in this wacky universe the Elder Evils as we know them are really just a bunch of otaku aliens, I'm not bothered about the all the poking with the forks. It's not like our titular character is inconvenienced in the long run by it.

BTW... do those "Mytho devil-like" creatures have "balls"?...

I meant... she kicked him there and it seemed to hurt, but from how you look at it... the devil's below is completely flat and it doesn't look like he's wearing any cloth... I think that's his Skin.

Unless... they get auto-censored and their private parts gets flattened?... LOL




Also, forgot to post... I laughed at the Ika Family Tree (so... Gekka is like the mother of everything?)
Tho... Where's the Octopus Girl (that was shown at times but never revealed in Ika Musume manga/ anime)... she was cute... and I believe she's supposed to be related to Ika Musume.

(or in this case... Megurine Luka)

I don't mean to bring it up in the anime thread but is there a light novel thread for this series?

I think the audience would have to make a sanity check if Nyaruko-san goes into Lorena Bobbit mode every time she kills a nighthaunt O_o;

From all Lovecraft works, Nightgaunts seem genderless....

I would say being hit in the pubic bone, regardless of gender, would be extremely painful.

Nah, I'm fine with it. In fact I'm enjoying it.

Fortunately this is a comedy, so I find Haiyore! Nyaruko-san significantly less disturbing than Saya no Uta.

Wow. That was... fantastic. I had to have been giggling for twenty-five minutes straight. I was expecting a 5/10 and got an 8+. If this keeps up, this will be by far my favorite comedy in a while.

I join the chorus of "Yay! Popura in a lead role!"

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"
