Shanta-kun shows off his fan service! Try not to stare or you will go blind…
|Ku ku ku only six more episodes of this crazy ass series to go! Whenever I think about one of my favorite series coming to an end I get a little sad, but I always look forward to second season announcements or maybe a possible OVAs in the future? So anyway time to start the review!
In this episode, Nyaruko battles Kuuko and saves Mahiro’s mother from “danger” and fun in the sun later.
Alien verses alien?
Kuuko-“How long do we have to hold this pose!?” Nyaruko-“FOREVER AND EVER UNTIL THE END OF TIME!!!”
So when we last left off Nyaruko was preparing to square off against Kuuko. Their fight wasn’t anything amazing or fantastic, however Nyaruko spent most of her time throwing her fists and a few powerful kicks to send Kuuko flying through the air… Seriously, where did she even learn to fight? I assume Nyaruko watches hours and hours of television and anime? Oh and what a sneaky way to fight using fake photographs of yourself to distract the enemy. I started to die laughing when Kuuko randomly started to strip after she lost the battle, but I think Kuuko started to show off her hardcore M side at last; now if only she could try to love Nyaruko-san without her dirty thoughts of getting busy with her every ten minutes or so.
My mom can’t possibly be this into video games!
Yoriko-“One moment please while I transform into awesome kickass mom!”
Yoriko-“Time to play rock paper forks with these evil monsters.” Ruuhii-“You are one evil mother…”
Yoriko takes care of all the trash mob before dealing with the boss.
Yeah, so turns out Yoriko wasn’t in any sort of danger in fact she was only “kidnapped” after she heard Ruuhii mention some brand new video game console she was working on called the Xoth 731. This is clearly a parody of the xbox 360, but I will get into the references a bit later. So, yes Yoriko was in no real mortal danger and proved she could take care of herself thanks to her amazing fork skills, while taking out a random pack of evil fish aliens! Damn she is one bad ass momma…or maybe she is just extremely curious about space consoles? My own mom in real life plays lots of World of Warcraft so I can really see some similarities between Yoriko and my own mom minus the aliens and fork related fighting moves.
Burn baby burn!
Kuuko-“Rest in peace you magnificent machine! I WILL MISS YOU!” Hastur-“Should we stand this close?”
There was an interesting chat between Yoriko and Ruuhii about expensive hardware and game production before Kuuko killed everything with awesome fire. I really want a PS3 at my house, but I have the same issues with buying an overpriced machine with little to no games! However every new system eventually comes down in price soon or later…and poor Kuuko! She was really heartbroken after she had to destroy the Xoth 731, but she is another dedicated video game “queen” after all.
Hastur is really the main character.
Hastur-“I finally get a fanservice scene and I am stuck with a hippo with wings…”
Breakout characters come and go but shouta alien boys are a rare breed or are they? Just kidding I am sure there are more alien boys out there. So what happens when Hastur tries to leave earth!? HE RETURNS OF COURSE and really, did we think he would leave Mahiro forever? He successfully transferred into their school and Hastur got invited to a beach trip with everyone, but Nyaruko had to get in his way and his ultimate love for Mahiro. I bet there are some new shippers out there for Hastur and Shanta-kun! Damn that little alien creature is so cute, but he is easily beaten by Noah the sloth from Eureka Seven Ao.
Invasion of the perverted aliens
Mahiro-“Why do I suddenly see all these hearts?” Nyaruko-“It means we are now one.” Hastur-“YAY!!!”
Mahiro-“Uh shouldn’t we keep this PG?!” Nyaruko-“I only know rated R things, Mahiro.”
During the first few scenes on the beach, Mahiro is eventually dragged out to play with Kuuko, Nyaruko and Hastur and each of them had their own perverted thoughts. Like Kuuko desperately wanting to get with Nyaruko; while Nyaruko wants to sink her teeth into Mahiro and Hastur has the same desires with Mahiro… Good lord that poor main character, everyone wants him in the worst way possible. Not to mention that ending? Damn I think everyone should feel a bit worried for his sanity! After all we all have seen enough Haiyore! Nyaruko-san to know she might look innocent under all that cuteness, but her true form is a giant terrifying tentacle monster…
Reference material all over the place
Erio would be so proud of you right now, Kuuko.
Ruuhii-“RISE UP MY CHILDREN AND BUY FIVE XoTh 731’s today! Or I will be forced to live on the streets…”
Like usual I am able to catch some of the obvious references and this week is more of the same! Starting off with Kuuko and Nyaruko’s epic fight, but after reading I can gather it wasn’t a DBZ parody after all like I originally thought. The next parody style reference follows Kuuko with a mattress tied around her straight from Denpa Onna aka amazing Erio cosplay. I was seriously waiting for that one to appear with all the talks of aliens. Next reference up is the famous Xoth 731 and the HS3 which are clearly parodies of xbox 360 and PS3 along with the CCE or Sony Computer Entertainment oh and Ruuhii’s famous OBJECTION pose. But there were a few I missed along the way. If you are interested in a longer list you should stop by the Nyaru Reference blog for more detailed breakdowns of every episode so far.
Best of the best Nyaruko-san this week.
Nyaruko used secret ninja technique: Fake sexy bikini shots
Kuuko is very sad she never got to play any new video games this week.
Nyaruko-“I have been saving this bikini ever since episode one! Enjoy.”
Happy late mothers day, Yahiro! I hope you have a relaxing day in the sun.
So what are we in for next week? I think we might jump back to the hardcore comedy we loved with the first few episodes, but I suppose there is more stuff to pull from the Lovecraft novels, right? In the last review there were talks of siblings of Kuuko and more for Nyaruko!? I think the producers could easily spawn a story out of that somehow. I can just imagine Mahiro’s reaction after seeing more aliens appearing inside his house…I think he should move to a remote island in the middle of nowhere and hide forever. As fun as that sounds to throw in more siblings we might be in store for some romance scenes or hardcore day dreams from Nyaruko? Maybe Hastur breaks the door down before Nyaruko can get busy with Mahiro!?
Overall this episode was really hilarious and very random thanks to things like the epic troll with Yoriko joining Ruuhii just to test some new space video game console; but I can remember a few commenters talking about that so high five for those that caught that. What else…the beach part of the episode wasn’t a crazy fan-service themed episode; however we are not fully clear of the dreaded swimsuit themed episode just yet because it returns next week to service our hearts and minds.
Hastur-“Nyaruko-san did what to my beloved Mahiro!? NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!”
Stay tuned for Nyaruko’s beach adventures part two!
