First Episode Review for: Haiyore Nyariko
Summary : Well basically all the gods of the Cthulhu Mythos are actually aliens and some of them are good guys (space cops) and are living on earth disguised as cute teenage girls, GOD I LOVE ANIME!!
Animation : A great mix of styles from a acceptable plain cell style to a seriously detailed dark style (hence the 2 screen shots)
Plot Potential: I don’t care if it has a plot (which is Lucky as I cant see any sign of one), as I’m to busy trying to follow all the ‘in jokes’ regarding Lovecraft’s works and RPG’s
Characters: The characters have diddly squat to do with their Lovecraft originals, and this is far more a re skinned “alien girl comes to earth” than anything else
Music: Nothing to speak off, I cant even remember the opening theme and its only 10 mins into the anime!
Reminds me of: To Love-Ru feels just about the same
Overall: I had been really looking forward to a Lovecraft themed anime, and was disappointed when the terrible flash style version Haiyore! Nyaruko-san came out
, this is the anime I was really waiting for and it is very happily received, though I’m sure that a pure lover of H.P. Lovecraft’s works would be rolling in their grave
Disclaimer: These are mini reviews of anime’s that are fresh out in Japan and are not licensed in the UK, buy them once they have been licensed or at the very least buy the merchandise, remember if the anime makers make a loss, THEY WILL STOP MAKING ANIME!!
