Haiyore! Nyaruko’s latest episode makes it incredibly clear, this is a series not to be watched for story at all, nor should one even bother attempting to recognize such – but instead, focus simply on the cute lolis.
One wasn’t too sure what to expect when this series first launched – and then slightly into it, one could still question whether any elements of plot were of interest, or even intended to be taken seriously at all. However now, Haiyore! Nyaruko has entirely broken down – for the greater good of course. This series is a gigantic parody of Lovecraft’s literature – yet this episode, more than any, is an absolute mess, a favorable one. Putting it into perspective, it’s akin to how Kore wa Zombie is brilliantly terrible.
Wasting little time, the episode immediately initiates and erupts into a fiery loli battle – Mahoro-chan and his shota companion run off to the core of the building in search of the mother, meanwhile, Nyaruko and the hot loli face-off against one another. Nyaruko doesn’t dawdle however – she quickly tosses a stack of photos which supposedly feature herself in a mizugi up into the air, sending the yuri inclined Kuuko crazily craving after them.
Yet unfortunately, the images prove to be worth as much as garbage – and no Nyaruko in mizugi do we receive, at least not yet, though on a brighter note, assuming it matters, Nyaruko has won the fight.
With that settled, attention turns to Mahoro who confronts a mid-aged megane wearing woman in hopes of rescuing his mother from who knows what – however, an interruption ensues as the hot loli falls from the ceiling in Denpa Onna attire, with Nyaruko subsequently following down, giving the undeserving trash excuse of a protagonist the sight of her pantsu.
From there, the idiotic story is explained – the green haired megame woman works for a space based videogame console system development corporation which is going the Sony route and making overly advanced hardware that no one can, or wants, to develop games for. The company who the megane represents is currently failing – and she believes this recipe for disaster of hers will be the turn around, yet it’s not.
While already obviously not going to be a successful plan, she needn’t even wait for her foolish scheme’s completion to see her company come crashing as she receives a call from the CEO who gives up before even trying – laying her off and ceasing the console project. After that’s all done, nothing gained whatsoever, and a river of gags expended in the process, there’s a quick, needless, and only partially satiating beach scene.
Whether this was included simply so the studio behind this work, Xebec, can check off “Beach” from the list of mandatory inclusions is unknown – however this surf-side segment has little service, and in fact, little of anything for that matter. It doesn’t do much aside from reiterate that the incompetent protagonist has the option of going yaoi, falling for a mythological bundle of cuteness who also loves him, or chasing after a hot loli who is hard to get due to her sexual preference being yuri.
Finally, the episode’s conclusion arrives with Nyaruko stripping of her garbs in the night, and getting atop the insolent expendable kid with some salacious intentions – as all the while, the kid yells for his homoerotic salvation.
There’s but a single possibly significant aspect worth mentioning – the generic protagonist seems to be easing up to Nyaruko just a bit. In any case, so long as there is creeping cuteness, there is reason to watch.
