Nyaruko-“There is a huge mystery to discover this week, Mahiro!”
|Welcome back, Haiyore fans! The previous episode wasn’t as hilarious as the other episodes, but I have high hopes for this one to be better for the laughter… Anyway, time for the review! LETS NYA!
This week, Yoriko is taken by Ruuhii and Kuuko for a secret mission while Mahiro, Nyaruko and Hastur plan to rescue her.
Kuuko-“Now…kiss!” Mahiro-“EHHHH!? WAIT!” Hastur-“My body is ready…”
We start this episode with Hastur, Kuuko, Mahiro and Nyaruko walking to the house together where Hastur plans on talking to Yoriko about something very important. Also Kuuko is pushing for the shipping of Mahiro and Hastur big time, because with those two out of the picture she can get closer to Nyaruko-san. Yeah right, keep on dreaming girl. After arriving at the house Yoriko shows up and Ruuhii pops up just in time to grab Mahiro’s mom in an attempt to kidnap her. But instead of resisting, Yoriko up and agrees to join the green haired woman for some secret interstellar mission or someone that holds the potential to rule space? Kuuko joins them after a quick fight with Nyaruko; oh and Ruuhii referrers to Kuuko as some queen, but what exactly is she the queen of? Yuri?
Mahiro-“I have had enough of these lies!” Nyaruko-“I CAN SEE MY HOUSE FROM HERE!!”
Yoriko-“Well hello there, little boy! You want me to adopt you too!?” Mahiro-“Nooooooooooo!! DON’T DO IT!”
Kuuko-“Oh my sweet yuri! Your mom is into older women…”
Kuuko-“Universal studios called and they want their car returned, Ruuhii-sama.”
So yeah Yoriko joins Ruuhii and Kuuko, and they escape like in the movie back to the future, complete with the amazing flying car mode. While Mahiro’s mom chills with her new friends, Nyaruko and the others try to figure out where they might have taken her and why, but they assume it has to be something related to the sononium she always talks about? Uh sure they the bad guys want a fake element that some human made up…right… Anyway, they eventually figure out they took her back to R’lyeh Land that just so happens to be deep underwater right now.
Nyaruko-“Don’t worry this is for your own good, Hastur!” Hastur-“I swear I will bite your arm off!”
Mahiro-“Are you thinking what I am thinking, Nyaruko?” Nyaruko-“Hmmmm I think so…”
Nyaruko-“PANCAKES! RIGHT!?” Mahiro-“Uh no! Let’s save my mom, but I could go for some pancakes.”
Surely Nyaruko has a plan right!? And the answer is yes! In the form of another random Pokemon reference she uses her magical ball to summon the all-powerful Nephren-Car! Yes she really does have a car that she keeps in her pocket, but this car has missiles and it basically doubles as an all-purpose submarine. Sadly they are stopped by some large monsters and Mahiro is thrown from the Nephren-Car… Damn those doors really suck or that bubble blast attack was super effective against the door.
Get your Nephren-car for three easy payments of ten thousand dollars!
Nyaruko-“No one can dodge my missile spam!” Mahiro-“What about giant monster fish girls?”
Thankfully Mahiro was saved by a magical rock and CPR by Hastur who openly confesses his undying love for Mahiro, but he dodges that bullet after telling the blonde to wait twenty five million years until he can accept his offer of love! D’awww tricking Hastur like that was low, but he does have Nyaruko after him every five minutes. The episode ends shortly afterwards with Nyaruko preparing to fight Kuuko with Ruuhii watching them.
Kuuko-“Are you fully prepared for this duel?” Nyaruko-“I forgot my cards, but I got my fists!”
Hastur-“I need to practice my CPR Mahiro.” Mahiro-“Uh please wait a billion years.”
Extra lovecraft fun
Hastur-“Oh Mahiro you smell so fresh I just can’t help but hug you!” Mahiro-“Thanks? I guess…”
I can see that your yuri levels are off the charts Kuuko.
Nyaruko-“I’M NOT KYOKAI WHO LIKES IT HOT! I LOVE MY TEA BUT NOT LIKE THIS! SAVE ME!!”
Nyaruko shows her cute side in the heat of underwater battle…
Alright that was a decent episode and I was only able to grab onto maybe two or three different references like the obvious one from Back to the Future and the random RPG comment about various vehicles you can find in most video games. I wasn’t sure on the third reference other than the awesome Nephren-Car, I kept thinking Code Geass because the rear tire things reminded me of the skates some of the Nightmare frames used to get around, but I could be way off like most of the time…
So, Hastur has feelings for Mahrio? I think most of us saw that plotline coming from a mile away, oh and anime always teaches us these things. At least Haiyore! Nyaruko-san has a blend of yuri themes and yaoi stuff for guys and girls. Then again Infinite Stratose tried the same thing with Char, but that was a trap character anyway… I am pretty sure Hastur is a boy, from reading comments on other blogs out there. Still it makes me laugh to watch how excited Hastur gets around Mahiro oh and Nyaruko/Hastur totally have the older sibling/younger sibling relationship; however, they are now official rivals when it comes to who loves Mahiro more.
This episode provided me with some new mysteries, like someone that holds the potential to rule space? I wonder what they are talking about!? Oh and does Mahiro’s mom have a thing for Hastur’s father? If the producers make them surprise siblings I will just die laughing or from the epic face-palming I will do later; either way I hope we find out more on that subject really soon. So, Kuuko is a queen now? I guess she is the queen of space? Because you can pretty much slap space onto anything in this series and it magically works. Comedy wise for this episode I just laughed at Nyaruko acting like her crazy self as always and Kuuko’s reactions to the new shipping of Hastur and Mahiro, but to be honest it wasn’t that funny compared to the first few episodes. Overall it was entertaining and that really is all that matters when following a comedy series! I hope next week provides more laughs because it looks like a beach/fan-service filled episode.
Swimsuits check! Random classmate showing up? Double check.
Fun in the sun with Nyaruko-san! So you better pack some sunscreen and an extra swimsuit top…
