Haiyore! Nyaruko-san episode 08
Why do I feel like I got kicked in my special place after watching this episode? Is it because I was expecting to see a cute Nyaruko? No, that can’t be it. Maybe it’s because I wanted to see something happen between Nyaruko and Mahiro? No… It has got to be the fact that Nyaruko went to her old ways, despite the way the episode actually started.
Nyaruko was finally drawing Mahiro’s attention in a good way, so why did it end up like this? I know that I’m watching one messed up anime, but come on… Don’t do this to me. A game that draws people in, causing them to get stuck until they finish (part of) the game? Wow, Twilight saga flashback. I’m not even sure that it was supposed to be a Twilight parody, but it sure reminded me of Twilight. Of course, the fact that I’m a Twilight saga fan might have something to do with it. Oh, and I want to make it perfectly clear that I mean Twilight the anime, not Twilight the movie trilogy; two supernatural gay guys fighting over a girl to hide their homosexuality. Never!
What did I tell you guys, huh!? I knew that Ruuhii would show up again. Well, at least we didn’t have to deal with that handicapped Charizard. So Ruuhii is a school nurse now, huh? Well played. A bit of school nurse on student action wouldn’t hurt anybody, not that it will actually happen though. Things will just stay the same; Cthuko goes after Nyaruko while Nyaruko and Hastur both go after Mahiro. Never have I seen a lucky guy so unlucky (warning: mindf*ck detected). I seriously doubt that it will end well for him, especially if Hastur ever decides to be as aggressive as Nyaruko.
Basically; the task at hand is for Mahiro to pick a girl (or boy) to fall in love with, pretty much just like in your average dating simulator. He has to clear all flags and finish one (or more) of the game’s stories. Only then can they escape that gaming world. I don’t care whether the idea may be stolen or not, it’s still genius. I guess it’s better to steal something good than to invent something bad.
I honestly have no idea why, but I’m actually looking forward to the next episode. Is it because the ending? They always leave such interesting endings, only to stomp on our expectations during the next episode. My god, the creator behind this is definitely an evil genius. It’s about time that those two had their first kiss. I can’t wait to see what happens next now!
