Animated Flash shorts based on the light novel series "Haiyore! Nyaruko-san." In these shorts, Nyarlko, an anthropomorphized female version of Nyarlathotep from the Cthulhu Mythos, is constantly being told off by Mahiro, a normal human boy, for all the crazy or stupid things she does.

In one of the shorts, Nyarlko is drawing a cover design for a body pillow. It turns out that the pillow's subject is a half-dressed Mahiro in what appears to be a hot and heavy scene with Nyarlko. Naturally, Mahiro proceeds to stab Nyarlko in the hand with a fork and threatens to kill her if she releases the pillow design.

Other shorts revolve around various gags and occasionally feature Cthuko, an anthropomorphized female version of Cthugha, who's madly in love with Nyarlko.

Haiyoru! Nyraru-ani is the heartwarming story of the loli personification of Nyarlathotep (Nyarlko) who is a by-the-books otaku wish fulfillment nerdy chick, who is in love with a normal guy called Mahiro who can only keep this non-tentacled horror under control with a hastily brought down fork slammed right throough her hand. Also; later in the series, we meet Cthuhko, who is the Japanese loli imagining of Cthulhu. And rather than looking like an octupus god like figure from the sunken sity of Rl'yeh, she is actually a kuudere girl who wants to feast upon Nyarlko's carpet.

So, that is basically the story and the character read more

Haiyoru!Nyaruani is an anime with a purpose: To sell the plot of a series of light novels like hotcakes. However, it lacks the bells and whistles to move past this purpose, and ends up drifting into the realm of forgettable.

As stated before, this series was made with the intention of promoting the light novel series that it's based off of. As you can imagine, this doesn't leave it very much room to develop, especially with the straining 4 minute length per episode. However, there's enough spontaneity and wackiness to make it a worthwhile, humorous, if unmemorable series to watch.

The animation obviously won't be read more

Anime: Seitokai no Ichizon
Both are otaku comedies based upon light novels. Very similar style of humor.

Anime: Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko
Supernatural flavored lovey-dovey-bishoujo-fanfare anime. Sci-fi element is weak and less worthy of mentioning than average Star Trek.

Anime with hot chick, slight of life, comedy and mild sex sell. With some extraterrestrial topping. Possibly mark the era that the almighty Love Hina should stop taking place in realistic setting.
