Haiyore! Nyaruko-san episode 09

This may just be the strangest episode yet, and that’s saying something when it’s Haiyore Nyaruko-san that I’m reviewing. This entire anime has been one strange trip of messed up parodies and strange wordplay, but this… This was even weirder.

Allow me to point out that Nyaruko went back to being her old self again. You know, that aggressive and pushy girl? Yeah, that’s her. Well, it’s not like I saw it coming. I don’t think that this anime would be any fun if Nyaruko turned into a shy, obedient and thoughtful girl. I doubt that that would mix well with the show.

We saw some crazy stuff during this episode; a messed up shopping trip, a messed up lunch where Ruuhii appeared as a Mahou Shoujo, and was still normal according to Haiyore Nyaruko-san standards. Everything was progressing pretty smoothly, until one of their classmates showed up with a strange gun that switched Mahiro’s mind into Nyaruko’s body and vice versa. I should’ve seen something like that coming, seriously.

Forget about the first half, that’s no longer important. Let’s focus more on this body switching thing. Nyaruko had the time of her life and Mahiro was in hell, as usual. Frankly, I don’t want to know what Nyaruko did during her time in Mahiro’s body, but I think it’s safe to assume that she familiarized herself with every nook and cranny of his body. The same thing cannot be said about Mahiro, strangely enough. A boy’s mind in a young, beautiful girl’s body would usually mean trouble for the girl. I know I’m just making assumptions here (it’s what I do, you know?), but I also think it’s safe to assume that Mahiro will die a virgin.

This entire episode was just one messed up parade of sexual harassment. Nyaruko was having the time of her life, and so was Cthuko, whom had some access to Nyaruko’s body. Mahiro tried to stop her, sure, but there’s only so much he can do in a body that’s not his own. He ended up creating a contract where Cthuko gets to ‘have’ Nyaruko’s body all for herself if she follows his orders until he has his own body back. Smart thinking, Mahiro.

I think it’s pretty clear from this that the episode was messed up. The ending was brilliant though, absolutely genius. Nyaruko, being inside Mahiro’s body and all, dragged Mahiro infront of the class and confess her love for herself (whilst in his body). I laughed so much that I ended up watching it three times over. I can’t wait to see how this ends.
