As were already shifting to the next anime season (summer 2012) today I witnessed an ending of yet another anime in my priority list. Haiyore Nyaruko-san, as you know it is an anime that is funny (though may look shit to some people) but I enjoyed every bit of it, and as far as I can remember I had no complain about it. It may not contain much when it comes to plot but I’d give it a 9/10 for how it developed the bond between Nyaruko and Mahiro that seemed impossible at first.
This episode is the continuation from the last week’s where Mahiro found the world around him was dead silent as if everybody has been raptured and was the only one left. At first he thought it was a prank pulled by Nyaruko after she’s capable of imposing a ‘barrier’ that would have a similar situation to the one Mahiro is in right now. Then Mahiro decided to take a stroll and that is when the feeling of intense loneliness struck his heart.
After that the first thing that Mahiro did was going to his school and looking for Nyaruko & co. everywhere he could think of where they might be. However each search turned out disappointing and that is when Mahiro thought how he missed everybody and he wanted to see them again so bad. Then he kept walking and walking to every possible place he could go, and even until the night arrived he still couldn’t find them.
The next thing happened was Mahiro was assaulted by the alien I forgot the name of that thing (the same type of alien that attacked him in the first episode). Luckily he had Nyaruko’s “magic mirror” which he confiscated from her before (because he deemed it as dangerous) and used it to defeat the monster. At the same time Ghutatan approached him and he learned that Ghutatan was somewhat behind everything that happened, and the truth is Ghutata was being used by her ‘butler’.
Turned out that Ghutata’s ‘butler’ was upset with Mahiro because Mahiro was unlike everything that he expected before (he thought Mahiro was a more “eroge-maniac” than Nyaruko). Anyway thanks to Mahiro using the “magic mirror” earleir Nyaruko was able to locate him and arrived in time to save Mahiro and Ghutatan. Then the fight between Nyaruko, Cthuko and Hasuta against Ghutatan’s ‘butler’ began but the battle was proven to be hard even for those three.
The wind of the battle however started to blow towards them after Mahiro’s mother and Luhy arrived to assist them. However at one point Nyaruko was caught but right when she was about to get killed Mahiro threw her weapon (the red crowbar) at her and she managed to use it to escape and defeat Ghutata’s ‘butler’. The battle ended with everybody still in in one piece but for Mahiro, it seemed that a new term in his life has just began.
I must say that one of the main reason I watched this show was because I’ve been waiting for a proper anime for 2010′s Haiyoure! Nyaruani (the short flash anime, if you can remember it). I don’t care about moe because for me this show is not about moe but the strong vanilla flavour that is impossible for me to resist, similar to what I felt with Tasogare Otome x Amnesia and Aquarion EVOL. If possible I’d like to watch more but then I don’t mind with it ended here either. I hope you enjoyed it too.
