SynopsisThe story centers around Nyarlko, a formless Cthulhu deity who can take on the shape of anyone it wishes, but particularly the shape of a seemingly ordinary silver-haired girl. Mahiro Yasaka is a normal high school student who is chased by aliens one night, until "Nyarlko" saves him.

Characters & Voice Actors
“Almost nobody dances sober, unless they happen to be insane.” -- H.P. Lovecraft
Remember My Lovecraft-sensei, like its predecessor, is an Adobe Flash-animated omake work; this time, it is on TV. The show currently sports a bizarre cast of the Great Old Ones: Nyarlko (Nyarlathothep), Cthuko (Cthugha), Atoko (Atlach-Nacha), and Nyarue (another Nyarlathothep). Also, an ordinary high school student boy.
So far, the Nyaruani series have not actually made an anime adaptation; though, this may change with the upcoming Haiyoru! Nyaruko-san. This show, again like its predecessor, is dedicated to people who have read the light novels; the huge attention to this niche is disconcerting for other viewers, aka us. We are pushed into this already developed world with no idea what to expect; sudden randomness and sexual references proliferate throughout the work and we are stuck in an eternal R’lyeh, confused by its Cyclopean plot structure which will decrease your SAN.
Thus, we have to ask, “How do we watch this show?”
We need to learn to accept and turn off our brains; a huge suspension of disbelief is required for this show. The work follows a Lovecraftian code to newbies: Never Explain Anything. Although this adage usually explains the conventions of horror works, this is also suitable to explain comedy. Watch it for the pointless sexual surreal comedy which can be funny to a group of people, like me. Think of it as a standup comedy routine.
And that’s how I enjoyed it.
The work pokes fun on light novels adapted into anime and breaks the fourth wall numerous times. It imagines the Great Old Ones as perverted bisexual females in a slice-of-life setting -- two of them hopelessly in love with the male protagonist. Atoko, with even a perversion Freud can’t stand, has some great lines of comedy; Nyarlko has some good ones too. The seiyuus, especially the one voicing Nyarlko, do a fantastic job at rendering their personalities. Asumi Kana basically plays Nyarlko like Tachibana Miya from Amagami SS and that choice for acting style is perfect.
Its weakest factor is the art and even the animator agrees. There are better Adobe Flash animators (Egoraptor, anyone?) that work for free; having a work done in Adobe Flash is not a good excuse. It is better than its predecessor, but that isn’t saying much. Yet, there are some great pictures, obviously stolen from Google Images and later changed in Adobe Illustrator through the live feature, that complements the humor. You have to at least laugh at the random Borg cube appearing at all the episodes. The OP is the only one that is animated, but it involves the characters moving their heads; the budget shows its toll a lot.
This is a work that is hard to recommend to most. If you know anyone who has a good dose of Lovecraft insanity and a good sense of Pythonesque humor, this might work; hence, my Lovecraft quote. Everyone else may have trouble watching it. Nevertheless, it does not hurt anyone to try watching it. I suggest watching the previous work; its running time as a show is only about 18 minutes. Remember My Lovecraft-sensei is just that, except with funnier sexual jokes.

Upon watching the 3rd episode of this 2D 4 minute omake, I'm a bit disappointed that the info provided by MAL doesn't seem to match that of the actual omake. Because the author has decided to just jump ahead it kinda makes this anime have a premature start as to how boy met deity or vice versa. Ok, so how did I rate this anime/omake? Here's how:
Story: Decent number 6.
Well, even if this anime has a premature start, the slapstick comedy and romance involving Nyarlko and Yasaka Mahiro was able suffice the omake's short comings. Also, I can't understand the authors mind as to the heck did he include an alien ship coming to earth.
Art: Good number 7.
I got to hand it to the artist, he really makes a good 2D anime, however, it is still the slap sticks that does the rest.
Sound: very good number 8.
I'm referring to the closing theme, I like the song and the one who sings it.
Characters: Poor number3.
For the entire 3 omake's that I've watched, only Nyarlko, Yasaka and the lady in a black yukata have speaking lines and identifiable roles, the weird girl with a fiery hair, Cthuko doesn't, so there is no telling as to what the heck is she doing in Yasaka's household, there is also a small dragon whose role you can only guess. And, there is some new deity with a flying baseball bat whose role is yet to be determined in later episodes.
Enjoyment and Overall: a good number 7.
This 2D omake may not be much, but listening to the ending theme, the slap sticks and the romance between Nyarlko and Yasaka is enough for me to rate it as so.
Both have a high school boy voiced by a woman
Both have a weird, perverted girl voiced by Kana Asumi
Both are only a few minutes long per episode
Both have some kind of strange animation to them
Both shows are sort of... odd
-Similar art style
-Both have the main female character voiced by Asumi Kana. The female protagonist is slightly weird and perverted...
-Awkward high school boy with more than one girl around him.
-Short, few minute episodes.
The similarities are:
Both involves a muchacho (male lead) having a realtionship with a hevenly being - even if it's a diety .
Both involves a couple of additional hevenly beings living with the muchacho and giving the poor chico some cabeza del dolor (headaches) along the way.
Both has one member of the household (if you can call it that way) whom the muchacho wouldn't wanna mess with.
What's the diffrences:
The muchacho in AMG is a college student, while in HN the muchahco is still in high school.
One is a full anime with a season 2, while the other is a 4 min omake.
HN is a pure slap stick comedy, while AMG is a combination of varous genre.
And, one is a 3D anime, while the other one is a 2D omake.
