Hell, a good amount of popular battle shonen main characters who are that age or older are voiced by women too (Goku, Luffy, Naruto, Gon, Edward Elric, etc).

Its just a Japanese thing.

I know females often voice boys, but they're in highschool for gods sake, Mahiro's voice should sound like his best friends...
The thing is females often voice highschool boys too. Just look at Riki in Little Busters....

I honestly wonder, if Mahiro was a chick and nyaruko was a boy, How many people would fucking love mahiro and find nyaruko annoying

I see people make this point quite often as if it were a powerful "gotcha" argument. So alright, what if the roles were reversed? Then it wouldn't be the same show. You can't just change a character's gender (while retaining an identical target audience) and pretend that's not a very significant change that impacts a viewer's experience and potentially clashes with their expectations.

Most people are going to have some character traits they find endearing from one sex but less so, or not at all, from another. So a romcom with a male protagonist will inherently be a different experience from a romcom with a female protagonist.

I'm certainly sensitive to gender equality and all that in real life (more than many, I'd wager), and I've disliked plenty of anime for shoehorning female characters into weak, helpless "damsel in distress" roles, so it's not like I'm saying it's something I ignore. But it's much more complicated than implying that character genders ought to be an interchangeable trait with no consequences on an audience's viewing experience.

(For the record, yeah I dropped Nyaruko primarily though not exclusively because of Mahiro. And yes I would have liked him better if he were a girl, but then we'd have a different show on our hands, as I've explained.)


Gotta agree with this. I have no problem with him "standing up for himself" or using the fork on Nyaruko. But Mahiro just made me dislike the show. I loved Nyaruko herself, the humor, the references and yuri moments etc. but everytime Mahiro talked it just took me out of it. I just really dislike his voice, I know females often voice boys, but they're in highschool for gods sake, Mahiro's voice should sound like his best friends...

I think it'd be interesting to see a type moon version of nyaruko-san - but i'm fairly sure (that is, terrified) urobuchi would make lovecraft look like dr seuss

More of forks, traps and insanity... can't wait to it.
Well I hope they will keep up with those references to HP Lovecraft's works as this was made first season so good.

And of course it would be nice to see Nyaruko's true form

Oh shit what the fuck, her true form is horrendous.. -.-!
And since Mahiro knows about it in first episode he says he's familiar with mythos) I don't find his behavior weird.
It doesn't help he is also surrounded by two other beings like this - respect for still being sane.

So he's fine normal guy who tries to deal with this situation and any other character wouldn't fit here to well.


but ppl seem to forget that nyanko and co. are fricken MONSTERS!!!
and i like how mahiro is, finally a character standing up for himself. though even with that, i myself did find his attitude annoying at times.


Monsters or not, they're hot.

a monster is fine too it would be awesome if you got this

The trap can GTFO too .The loli can return to replace him.


I know, right ?
That loli was freakin' ADORABLE. They would be pretty stupid not to bring her back.


Ghutatan was so precious, I want to take her home, she should come back in an episode or 2, scratch that, just let her stay on Earth for the duration of the series.

Mahiro is by far one of the worse main characters ever.

This anime loses many points just because of him.

Feb 9, 2013 8:01 PM by JustALEX

This. Made. My day.

Feb 9, 2013 7:16 PM by HauntingShock

It seems I'm not the only one who thinks Mahiro is incorrigible.

Hopefully he is a little nicer in season 2. I'm sure Nyaruko will be charming as always.
