"I'm Nyarlathotep, the creeping chaos always smiling beside you." But you can call her Nyaruko for short. One by one, the Great Ones from the Cthulhu mythos are coming to earth to target Nyaruko and her human friend Mahiro. He's utterly clueless about the true nature of his cosmic conflict and just wants to live in peace.

In an age where media is thriving and the economy is stagnating and slowing to a crawl there’s often the question of product quality versus a more cost-effective approach. This holds especially true for the anime industry where the bulk of the paying audience are exploitable and easy to profit from. There's a sizable amount of anime where a certain degree of integrity and quality is held over the potential of large sales numbers and, conversely, there are shows where quality is disregarded and instead replaced by a number of efficient pandering methods.

Unfortunately, Haiyore Nyaruko-san is one of the latter.

Before you instantly downvote this Review for not being a 10, 9 or 8; I'd like to remind you that a 7 should be considered a "Good" RATING. Anything above a 5 should be considered "good". MAL reviews are broken, but I'm at least trying to fix mine. Please take the time to read it all.

Here's a quick TL;DR rundown of Haiyore! Nyaruko-san

1- You've probably seen it before. There's nothing special about this Anime. The story is just a sequence of events thrown together so as to fit as many gags as possible in, the characters are recycled, the gags are overused. If read more

I really don't get why this anime gets so many bad reviews. Actually, I do.

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san is the epitome of a plot-less anime, with the absence of "true" romance, conflicts, or any character goals. This makes Nyaruko-san very polar; you either love this kind of random comedy, or hate it. And I happen to love it. It is such a relaxing, fun anime to watch, something you can enjoy without having to focus too hard on picking up the details.

The core of the anime is based around light parody comedy, while throwing in a TON of references. This anime has so many references to read more

The most unexpected anime series airing in this 2012 spring season I would say would have to be Haiyore! Nyaruko-san. It can be categorized as both Parody and Comedy at the same time and shows great promise as it is a series that does not take itself seriously and is unafraid to show itself as such. If it's able to keep up the level of quality, this series has a good chance of becoming the best comedy series of this year.

In H.P. Lovecraft's stories, the Cthulhu was an unspeakable, indescribable horror that haunted the collective dreams of mankind. In Nyaruko-san, the Cthulhu is a cute read more

Anime: To LOVE-Ru
-Both shows has a alien girl who loves the male protaganist
-Alot of comedy, parody, and development of romance
-To Love-Ru contains abit more fanservice then Haiyore! Nyaruko-san

Anime: Binbougami ga!
Binbougami ga! started when Nyaruko-san ended, but the feel that those two anime brings are the same: supernatural elements in a comical way, lots of parodies of other animes, similar humor and situation and a little bit of romance. Watching Bimbougami ga! is like continuing watching Nyaruko-san.

Anime: Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko
Supernatural flavored lovey-dovey-bishoujo-fanfare anime. Sci-fi element is weak and less worthy of mentioning than your average Star Trek. The fun part of Nyaruko-san is obviously not wet tentacles trying to ass-rape random teenage boy, but hot chicks that spout sexy nonsense and wear easy-to-took-off uniform.

They both are anime with hot chick, slight of life, comedy and mild sex sell. But with some extraterrestrial topping. Possibly mark the era that the legendary romance harem like Love Hina is a little bit too boring in normal world setting, so Japan added robots and aliens to them. Now you understand where all those animes came from./>
What else is worth mentioning? Not really. The pace are different, the humor are not at all similar, the art direction is all cool but not worth pointing out, the voice acting is not the same style for most part of the show. End of discussion. Now choose your porn, if you have high tolerence to everything, both are funny. If you hate overly fast paced comedy, go with Denpa Onna. If you fall asleep when watching Titanic and fall asleep again decade later when watching Titanic3D, go for Nyaruko-san. No one can sleep with that thing on. read more

Anime: Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan
Both have girls with magic powers, funny side characters, some ecchi and a lot of comedy. The female lead in both series are also non-humans, one being an alien and the other an angel.
Kugimiya Rie also voice acts in both series as Sabato and Hastur.

Anime: Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?
They are both based off of comedy however Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka has a much more responsible lead and more of a plot

Anime: Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Love Comedy wo Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru
Several crazy girls around the main male character and really really misfortunate and pitiful mc.
both are lovecoms about high schoolers.
