Nyaruko-san: Another Crawling Chaos
21 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Mahiro Yasaka is an ordinary Japanese school boy who is rescued from a strange monster by a girl called Nyaruko; she isn't any girl though; she is Nyarlathotep... one of the deities of the Cthulu mythos! She claims that she is part of the Space Defence Agency and she is there to protect him! Soon they are joined by Cthuga and Huster, two more Cthulu deities from the SDA. Much to Mahiro's dismay they all end up living at his house. Over the course of the series they deal with numerous demonic monsters; that isn't Mahiro's only concern though... Nyarko keeps throwing herself at him and Hester, who is male, also has an interest in him; Cthutha however only has eyes for Nyarko.

As you might have surmised this is a comedy; and a fairly good one at that. I didn't think a comedy anime where the characters are taken from the works of Lovecraft and look like school children would work but it does. Mahiro is a decent protagonist but it is Nyarko who provides most of the laughs with her desire for Mahiro and her love of Earth culture... especially that deemed to offensive for export into space! We don't see anything offensive though.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
