I concur. She's a really fun and unique character, and provided a ton of entertainment during this first episode.

I have to say that being a Lovecraft fan is more an impediment than it is an enhancer when it comes to my enjoyment of this series, though.

Did anyone else think the character designs (especially Nyaruko) looked an awful lot like Buriki?

I could do without the fork thing (seriously, why would she even tolerate that?), but the rest of the show is pretty fun so far; I wonder how many of the characters from the flash-based series make it over here.

Judging by the opening all of them also she might tolerate the fork thing because it doesn't really do anything to her? Other than the initial ouch she says, she's never injured by it.

Considering that she's a super-powerful deific being from non-euclidean space who could squash Mahiro like a bug if she felt like it, and considering the crap she tends to put him through, the fork thing is both not a serious threat to her, and a justifiable tool in a comedy for keeping her in check. There is very little Mahiro could to to actually stop her were this a more serious series. The fork thing is a form of comedic sociopathy where we recognize that A: it does not actually cause Nyaruko any real harm, and B: it gives Mahiro a means of keeping this creature under some control. Without something like that, she would probably end up raping him, at the least.

And remember boys and girls, no matter how attractive she may be, rape is always bad.

Nyarle or what was her name is the filler character, don't now about the Atoko.

BTW it's almost like Song of Saya! But not.

Think of the children! I did! The indescribable monstrosity born of a new Adam and Eve? (that rape face was win)

It's so easy to get caught up in her pace without realizing it. There was so much to laugh at that this might give Zombie-desu competition for the bizarrely humorous category this year.

Taken from wiki:

Quote:
while the other Outer Gods and Great Old Ones are often described as mindless or unfathomable, rather than truly malevolent, Nyarlathotep delights in cruelty, is deceptive and manipulative, and even cultivates followers and uses propaganda to achieve his goals.
so yeah, it's no wonder that he doesn't want to get involved with her.

Huh. I wonder if Nyarlathotep is actually in love with Mahiro or not then.

Also, this show rules. Everything Nyarla says and does is hilarious.

You don't even have to make that text dump because the most important reason why the fork thing's funny and not offensive is because it's a COMEDY. When the three stooges are slapping each other around and being bastards to each other it's funny for the same reason.

Wow, this is definitely going on my watch list. Naryuko is simply too funny. And that ending bath scene where she tries to rape Mahiro, is so unusual that it feels fresh and unique. Rather then the guys lusting after the girl, in this series, the reverse is true. Definitely a nice touch. There are not that many shows I'm going to be watching this season, but this definitely made my list.

Nyarlathotep defend the earth? lol, the last time i see her in a fictional work that borrowed her as the Antagonist, she screw the hell out of it. i think my sanity point just dropped massively after this

anyway, episode 1 was awesome and i loved it. and seriously? cthulhu gods defend the earth because they love anime and otaku stuff? . nyarlko is just too funny, but the only time i think she act somewhat like nyarlathtep in other fictional work is when she beat the crap out of those nightgaunt.

It's not rape if a cute girl does it though, it's a lucky event!

My Cosmic Abomination Can't Be This Cute

SAN Roll, that D100 roll, then Mahiro losing SAN. An unusual use of Cthuluh mythos. This show IS a feast for tabletop RPGs players and Lovecraft readers who don't mind a little deviance on their hobby and fandom, like me.

Xebec, this is how you service people.

Nyaruko's VA sure sound like she is having FUN voicing The Crawling Chaos.

It's not a lucky event if you can't tell her true form.

Spoiler for My feelings about Nyaruko:



PS: I would gladly like someone to make an avy out of that ZR walk from the OP. and a sig from the SAN roll (the scene with the D100 roll and the character sheet). Please.

PPS: I also see Kugimiya as He Who Shall Not Be Named, the King In Yellow, etc...

Nyar___ is absolutely hilarious, I'm glad Poplar VA got a starring role and she sounds really good (/wacky?) here. The show kinda slows down when the focus is not on her though, and it doesn't help that the male lead is dead boring; hopefully they find ways to remedy that.
