If you don't mind vintage games, you can try Shadow of the Comet and Prisoner of Ice. More recent is Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth.
Just remember the rules of Call of Cthulhu:

-Low Idea, High Speed stat
-Avoid the magic items
-Try to avoid combat
-Don't read anything
-Stay in the middle of the group
-Don't look straight ahead
-Have a cyanide pill ready

Just remember that 9/10 times the game will end with everyone in the group dead, gone insane, or devoured. Sometimes all three.

I already looking at Hasta's uniform, but when watching the swimsuit part of the ending theme, I feel like he/she is hiding his/her breasts with his/her waistcoast. First time I saw this kind is in Mayo Chiki!.

When watching the first episode, Mahiro always use a fork whenever Nyaruko do something indecent (like kissing), it became a running gag for the whole series. I can understand it's a boy who loves hitting the girl he loves, but why he always use that fork ?

You're saying that he's in love with her?

Because it's a running gag.

I take it as a little shoutout to how some beings in the Cthulhu Mythos are weak against certain mundane objects.

Also very amusing to watch newbies playing the P&P RPG deck themselves out with firepower.

I'm a Lovecraft fan, an avid "call of cthulhu" roleplayer, and I've played Demonbane, etc.

I'm kind of obligated to be here - browsing the pages looks promisingly funny, off to watch.

Heck, one of Nyarlathothep's incarnations (the Haunter in the Dark, if I remember right) can be destroyed by bright light. Forks wouldn't be out of the question.

Or Chii-chan from Hourou Musuko (Nitorin they didn't accept quite so easily)...

Contrary to my stated principles, I liked it because it raises the seriousness of things. She's not just some hyperactive schoolgirl. She's either a powerful alien or an ancient deity. Stronger measures than a punch are required to still her. I mean, maybe she could melt the fork with a glance, if she felt like it.

The longer you are in contact with the *Other* the more sanity points you lose. The fork is his talisman... futile, maybe it rings when he taps it

LOL the sale chart of the books
Spoiler for size:


though i'm sure many of those otaku will be disappointed when they found out that the book it is about Eldritch Abomination Gods instead of Moe Hyperactive Nyarlathotep and other Outer Gods

Lovecraft had a particular style of writing.... so I'm curious as to how it translates.

She's cute and all. But attractive? I think not. She could probably do a spread-eagle in front of the main boy - but - he'd be running away from it, where in that case, I don't blame him. After all, he's already staying away from her kisses. She's way too much of a spazz for that kind of stuff or to be taken seriously.

But don't get me wrong here. I don't hate her; simply, I find her antics amusing.

But those "queens", "emrpesses" use the male title for themself, there are many reasons and one of them to make them to differ from queen consort who are just wife of reigning king.

Even more, this series is a Japanese animation, "king" will become a non-gender title for some purposes .
