Haiyore! Nyaruko-san episode 10
I can’t believe it. Haiyore! Nyaruko-san just skyrocketed up the weirdness-meter. Imagine someone watching this anime, someone that doesn’t normally watch anime. That individual would never return to the anime scene ever again.
The story continues as Nyaruko finished her confession. Remember; Nyaruko was still inside Mahiro’s body, pretending to be Mahiro. Say whatever you want, but that was a brilliant move by Nyaruko. It all when straight up the weirdness-meter from there on out. I can’t believe I actually watched the entire episode, let alone laughed throughout the entire thing.
I’m slipping, I really am. Normally I never would’ve laughed at this sort of thing. Come on, a show about horny aliens, aliens that want to destroy earth because of the gaming industry and a boy that has won the hearts of several aliens. It has to be those ridiculous parodies, it just has to be. Come on… That magic-cancelling beam scene with all the Yu-Gi-Oh type names seemed like it went on forever.
However, I still don’t think that that was the worst of it. The worst, for me, was when Mahiro’s friend activated that extremist weapon and the extremist leader revealed his identity (technically). Why is it that there are always tentacles involved when it comes to aliens? Those Japanese have some serious issues to work out there, that’s for sure.
I would like to end this post by saying that it wasn’t a bad episode. I know I sound pretty negatively, but I did enjoy it, especially during that kissing scene where Nyaruko took advantage of a grieving Mahiro. It’s just… I’m normally not a big fan of these types of anime. I’m still not completely sure as to why I like this one. There are only two episodes left, and I would be fine if both of them are just as weird as this one, but I think it would be nice to see some more romance. We’ll see…
