The entire Haiyore! Nyaruko-san series is amazing, its saddening to consider Haiyore! Nyaruko-san F a sequel considered it was just 1 OVA many hoped it would a full 12 episodes. None the less this one episode fulfilled many of my expectations.
Expecting you've watched the other season (Haiyore! Nyaruko-san and W) you can expect the same hilarious parodies and the wacky awkward situations Mahiro is put through by the alien Trio + Mom and Shantak-kun.
In this episode Mahiro and his household are offered tickets by Tamao and Yoichi to tag along to a popular amusement park that just recently opened. The theme is "A realistic escape game" where participants do various games throughout the park to find the end, unexpectedly a new character arrives to tries to interfere with the groups daily lives.
The art style is the same as the previous seasons. Pretty standard quality of animation consisting of bright vivid colors, detailed character art, fluent animation, and well drawn backgrounds. All the art and animation fit very well with each other it will come down to personal opinion whether you enjoy it or not.
The sound is good there is nothing really to complain about, but at the same time nothing to really too out of the ordinary. The voice actors fit their characters roles and personality perfectly. The sound quality was good, the dialogue between characters was fluent and clear, and the action scenes sound effects where on point nothing seemed to be missed. As for the OP and ED I found them both really enjoyable to listen to they were catchy and entertaining.
After the long ride of 2 seasons and couple of OVAs thrown in Mahiro and Nyaruko FINALLY start getting a good development with their relationship. The whole 1 sided open relationship x tsundere male was ongoing for too long. In this episode we finally see character development and a change of direction. There was a huge gain of satisfaction I had while watching this episode. I'll let you judge on if you think it was satisfying or unsatisfying.
I love the Haiyore! Nyaruko-san series I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in comedy and parody. There wasn't a single moment that I didn't find enticing or enjoyable. It was one of those anime that will always remember and have a special place for.
Overall this 1 episode really filled my expectations I was left satisfied and happy. The story, art, sound, and character development were all good and enjoyable. I really hope that Haiyore! Nyaruko-san episodes continue to come out, but it is looking grim since the light novel ended sadly. The only 1 down side I have for Nyaruko-san F was the fact that they made it only 1 episode I would of loved to get an entire season 3.
This OVA was absolutely amazing! I laughed so hard during all episode and counted many references to the other series and popculture. I think that after this ep there should be full 3rd season with action just after OVA's and with same level of relations between characters (which supose to evolve during 3rd season). I highly recomend this ep for people who seen two previous seasons and like Cthulu and Lovecraft :D
Ah, Haiyore! Nyaruko-san, a parody anime talking about the existence of HP Lovecraft's cthulu monsters in female human versions of themselves in a show that's about as wacky as you can probably think of. So, with the new OVA, what's there to see?
Story (7.89/10): The story for this OVA is very simple. Nyaruko, Mahiro, and co. are given tickets to a new attraction in town thanks to Tamao being suddenly given enough tickets for the entire cast. (How convenient) Upon entering this attraction, Mahiro and Nyaruko are thrown into a dangerous situation that requires them to get out, and there, we have our story.
Since this is an OVA, the story of it doesn't really go all out, however unlike most OVA, this one actually has a more story-like aspect rather than just a random fun episode filled with fanservice or what have you. Rather, this OVA showcases our main two characters being thrown into a situation which in turn, has our signature male tsundere Mahiro, to think about the relationship he has with the strange cthulu girl that has invaded his life for about 2 seasons + 2 OVA's already.
The OVA itself ends with a bit of a cliffhanger ending, making me think that we might have something of a third season of the show (even though it's considered a sequel to W.) because at the end, it introduces us to a new character and progression with the relationship between our main two characters, but only one can hope. Still though, overall, this was a nice OVA. Nothing to really get scared over because this is Nyaruko after all, and issues in this show always seem to resolves themselves.
+ Nice, new story
+ Character relationship progression (and it's between Nyaruko and Mahiro. That's even more surprising.)
Characters (7.77/10): Like the rest of the series before "F" here, there really isn't any change in cast. We still have Nyaruko with her lovesick/thirsty behavior towards Mahiro, we still have Kuuko and Hasuta being their normal same sex lovey selves (not that there's anything wrong with that), and the others.
The only real big change with this OVA in terms of characters is, as I've stated before, the relationship between Mahiro and Nyaruko. There is actually some progress with specifically, how Mahiro actually sees the crazy Cthulu girl, and makes some decent headway towards what we're all probably (hopefully) thinking, which is the pairing of the two. (At least, I hope I'm not the only one praying for that to happen.)
+ Cast is the same memorable selves as they are
+ Character development
Art and Sound (7.88/10 and 7.11/10): The art for Nyaruko-san F is style-wise, relatively unchanged. There really isn't much difference in the actual style of the show, but quality-wise, since there's been a gap between the last OVA and this one, it looks significantly better, a whole lot brighter, clearer, and better quality. I like it.
In terms of sound, it's a bit of an interesting call this one. For this OVA, it's actually given rather than the original tracks from the previous season, a new set of OP and ED tracks that are completely different in terms of OP and ED visuals, and the actual track itself. What bothers me is that for some reason, they're not really as addicting or soul-crushingly annoying as the first two were (especially the first season one...), so that was a bit of a letdown.
+ Much better art quality
+ New OP and ED tracks
- New tracks weren't all that memorable sadly
Personal Enjoyment (8.10/10): The Nyaruko series has always been a very enjoyable series to me personally. It has a lot of parodies within it, it's a wacky series that really doesn't require much thought when watching it (cause lord knows you'll be even more confused if you try and make some sense out of it), and the odd relationship between Mahiro and Nyaruko always interested me.
Did I like this OVA?
Yes, I did. It's always fun to watch a series you enjoy again with new material, so there wasn't really any reason for me to not enjoy this to some extent.
What didn't I like about this OVA?
Nothing really, except that it wasn't longer.
Would I recommend this OVA?
Yeah, if you're a fan of Nyaruko. Likewise to the rest of the series, this OVA plays out relatively the same, if not a little bit more deeper into the relationship between the characters. Personally, I hope that this isn't the end to the Nyaruko anime because tbh, with the way this ended, they're either trolling us, or hinting at it, and I hope it's the latter, because this show is really fun to watch.
