Mahiro Yasaka is just an ordinary high school student, until one day he is suddenly attacked by a dangerous monster. Just when everything seems to be lost, he is saved by a silver-haired girl named Nyaruko, who claims to be the shape-shifting deity Nyarlathotep from horror author H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, sent by the Space Defense Agency to Earth. She explains to Mahiro that the creature chasing him was an alien called Nightgaunt, who had planned on abducting and selling him as a slave.

After rescuing him from the alien, the Lovecraftian deity falls madly in love with Mahiro and forces herself into his household, much to his chagrin. Moreover, they are soon joined by two others from the fictional universe: Cthuko, a girl obsessed with Nyaruko, and Hasuta, a young boy easily mistaken for a beautiful female. Together, the three eccentric aliens protect Mahiro from the various extraterrestrial dangers that threaten both his and Earth's well-being, all the while making his life a living hell.

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.

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

Comedy...it is very subjective, whether or not you consider a show to be funny or not simply depends on you, I think that mindset sums up Haiyore! Nyaruko-san perfectly.

This show is about a young high school boy (I know, I know) named Mahiro Yasaka, he lives an ordinary life until one day he is attacked by a demon and saved by a young alien girl by the name of Nyarlko. Afterwards she confesses her love for him and well we get a stereotypical "hijinks ensues" plot for the rest of the show. The main focus is Mahiro fending off Nyarlko's constant advances (which as kind read more

This will is more sort of a warning than it is a review.

The anime itself has nothing original to itself. There is no plot or I just forgot it. The anime itself does not even care.

This is a comedy anime, I know, but the comedy aspect could be better. It is FULL of references and nothing out of their own creation. Even tho I know for sure I could not catch about 80% of the references, you can just tell they just didnt do it themselves. I just think it is too much of a multi-parody, and it never stops.

I'm sorry if you think read more
