Haiyore! Nyaruko-san - 06

Denial is more than just a river in Africa.

Heterosexuality has been under dire threat this week – and no, I’m not talking about that other news story.  No, it was the arrival of the King in Yellow (not the Queen in Yellow, mind you) that seems to be causing cerebral hemorrhages in otaku everywhere as they try to compute Hastur’s existence without embracing their inner shotacon (as Mahiro seems to have).  The most popular approach seems to be out and out refusal to believe Hastur is actually male, but the evidence is overwhelming, so – he’s here, get used to it.  Perhaps Hastur will be the Hideyoshi of this generation (well – a year or two later in this generation anyway).

I think Mahiro summed up the end of this two-episode “arc” as well as anybody – ‘Now that it’s over, I can’t believe how unbelievably stupid it was.”  That’s certainly what I expected – in fact I would have been disappointed otherwise – and a console war was a sufficiently  dumb premise to satisfy most customers.  Full credit to the author for getting “Xoth” into the series as the new console’s name, and full credit to Yoriko-san for correctly explaining that the console with better technology almost invariably loses the console war, and why.  There’s definitely something in this show for the geek of every stripe.

The second half of the ep focused on the inevitable onsen trip, which gave us some movement on the relationship front, seemingly.  I couldn’t help but notice that even Yoriko-san was apparently dreaming of Mahiro, so obviously all fetishes are on the table – indeed, it’s only Kukko who has no interest in him.  Poor Hastur – like Hideyoshi – wasn’t allowed in the men’s bath (Nyaruko made sure of that) and we even had what looks very much like a hook-up (well, a deflowering really) at the end – though I suspect Mahiro’s scream was a little premature (let’s hope that’s all that was premature) because I can hardly see the main couple consummating their relationship this early in the story.  Besides – when danger threatened, it was Hastur that Mahiro reached for…

  1. Haiyore is funny but due to a lack of comedy this season I watched all the seasons of Minami-ke and Working! again.

    Ah what a good weekend.

  2. Somehow I kind of doubt that Nyaruko will get the head start on that soccer team that she's always wanted, but carpe diem, as they say. Best to start early.

    As for the King in Yellow... Yeah, it's a given how many people failed their SAN rolls for that one.

  3. Considering that Nyaruko is older than any living human and still so young. Theres probably no need to start on that soccer team so early.

    @Enzo: There a number of anime that had the main couple together earlier on. Gundam Seed was before the half way mark. Yosuga no sora and Aki Sora... well maybe those are special exceptions.

    And an anime next season would have a NSFW scene if there decide to show it before the half way mark.

    And he was protecting Hastur as he seems to be the weakest although with his powers, Hastur should do the protecting

    1. Narue no Sekai/The World of Narue had Kazuto and Narue get together by the FIRST EPISODE. People tend to forget it.

    2. As much as i like to have someone agree with me... they did not get together in the first episode right? I only read the manga and the first chapter ended with her showing him the universe, while he stayed at her panties

    3. Both the second episode and the second chapter actually start with them already as boyfriend and girlfriend. So it would be more accurate to say that they became an item in between. The point still stands though that they're an example of a couple that, from the onset of the series, are pretty much attached at the hip.

    4. Irrespective of that, I really think Haiyore! is a different sort of series...

    5. Nyaruko is the Trope Inversion of the Harem series. Rather than gathering hot females around an average guy, we have a series where the "average guy" is attempting to flee the collection of Eldritch Abominations that are collecting around him.

      And, I think this is less a "hook up" than a "RUN FOR THE HILLS! MAHIRO!" scene. But, the Sanity points that are about to be lost in episode 7. This is the setup this series was made for. They better pay it off. There's 500+ series that have done the Beach/Onsen episode. I expect a parody of EVERY send up. Nyaruko, I have faith in you!
