Considering how many new series will be released this season, I just don't seem to know which to series to cover first. Well, I'm already covering one and that is Accel World. I'd thought that I'll never make up my mind but I came across a series called Haiyore! Nyaruko-san and decided to have it covered.
Now, let's start off with the synopsis:
The story revolves around an ordinary boy named Mahiro Yasaka who met an encounter with a silver-haired, human-like alien girl in the name of Nyarlathotep, also called the Nyaruko. Nyaruko was sent to Earth from an outer space organization to stop a syndicate from doing illegal transactions on Earth and more importantly, to protect her supposed protectee which happens to be Mahiro. The series continues as they fight more monsters and deals with Nyaruko's 'love-at-first-sight' love for Mahiro.
My first impression for this series is that it's got be quite interesting. First thing off, this series surely is funny. The humor that they injected in this series may not be far from other series, but who doesn't like funny series.
As for the characters, they're pretty much stereotypical but personally, Nyaruko is easily likable. It has to be because she likes to talk a lot and that her hyperactivity is far from annoying. Sadly, Mahiro's character is nothing memorable and that I could easily dose of to sleep watching this series if not for Nyaruko's existence and the presence of humor.
Storyline? It's is pretty much predictable and if you're looking for something unique, then this series is not for you. But if you're looking for something just to kill off the time, then this is quite good, thought I honestly can't say there's something special that this series has to offer.
The first episode is more about getting to know Nyaruko's character and the nature of her work on Earth. I can see more lovey-dovey scenes between Mahiro and Nyaruko in the coming episodes. We all know that more fight scenes will be happening too but I don't think I'll be that interesting. We also had a glimpse of the possible villain in this episode. That's one thing that I'm looking forward to in this series because it has to be another catfight.
Generally, first episode is a little bland but I decided to cover this series up because of Nyaruko. :) If I had to rate this up, I'd give this a 6.5 over 10. Funny how I think this series is not that memorable but then, I'm still watching it.
