Prepare for disappointment, because ratings are irrelevant for a series like this. Only BD/DVD sales matter, and stalker points indicate this show is going to be a major hit.

It's hard to imagine a series less deserving of the kind of self-righteous nonsense in this argument. Lovecraft himself would find the idea of calling his work "sacred" hilarious, and I like the fact that Japan is willing to make fun of just about anything, including it's own "sacred" culture. But as has been pointed out, making fun of things a Japanese audience wouldn't understand serves no purpose.

Back on track, err, Nyaruko for president!

While it wasn't 6th Edition, I just used the "Student" occupation from the Investigator's Companion Volume 2 from Chaosium, as I thought it was close enough.

Caveats apply. Cthulhu Mythos Score might actually be HIGHER in reality, while current Sanity Points are likely much MUCH lower.

Spoiler for Mahiro Yasaka, CoC experimental:

Many Kamen Rider Decade puns. Looks when source material was published... 2009

Same year Kamen Rider Decade aired.

Some impressive turnaround time on getting the references in there. Most Kamen Rider jokes in anime are geared more towards the Showa era (with a lot of the Heisei era ones being in long runners or kids' shows), so seeing a show aimed at the late night crowd and packed with references to modern Riders (though some old ones are in there... in more than one way) is a real treat. I wonder if the latest novels are referencing OOO and Fourze as freely as this early material did Den-O and Decade.

Maybe Kuuko wants to woo her waifu and so picks up Fourze's skills? After all, she is the embodiment of the FIRE Switch. And she uses modules.

Yeah his Mythos score should be higher if it's just knowledge based. He's a lovecraft fan.

The thing is with Mythos scores is that they're inversely proportional to how sane a person is, as you actually DEDUCT the Mythos number from 99 to get your maximum Sanity Points. As far as I've seen, Mahiro isn't quite insane. Yet. Also it does look like he's making those SAN saves, aside from that one instance with the Night Gaunt... Plus he IS a student. Having more than 60 on a skill, even the Mythos, would be strange, except for library work...

Stupid little sidebar of a question, but what's with Kuuko's little "po" when she's gushing about Nyarko? She does it a couple of times in episode 3. I assume it's some kind of onomatopoeia, but I can't figure out what for. A sigh, maybe?

I have never played CoC but I remember reading that in those extraordinary instances an investigator finishes three scenarios he usually learns one or more magic spell or gets some kind of magic item but so far Mahiro gained nothing that I can see, I suppose he is lucky for being alive and keeping a semblance of sanity (Stockolm syndrom anyone?).

It's an exaggerated sigh, kind of like "pft" in some Western comics.

Indeed, surviving a Call of Cthulhu campaign with the same character is a feat in of itself. Besides, Mahiro has his fork (which I suspect is the only reason his Sanity points are being refilled), and the box which he can use to summon Nyarlko, so I suppose he DID gain something for the little jaunt to Rl'yeh.

LOL. Whoever added in the fork on the weapons list deserves a cookie.

The more you learn about Cthulhu Mythos. The more you'll go insane. To the point where you need a fork.
