Maybe he didn't have the greatest prose but his conception of man as being an infinitesimally small part of a larger universe with forces and 'creatures' raging beyond mans puny knowledge and comprehension was fantastic. Some of his stories aren't so great, some are brilliant at creating a sense of fear.

You forgot to mention how he influenced more or less everyone that came after him. You can trace lovecraftian mythos or abominations in mostly anything deemed "horror" today.

He was a dime horror writer though. A great one, must be said, but the medium that published his stories (magazines) was not much more literary recognized than LN's or anime. In his time he was the lowest of the low in literary circles.

>>100899129
One example of a dime writer that made it big is Asimov. He started writing shity stories in shity magazines and ended writing trilogies, history books and science books.
He was a fine person and a good writer. Cannot be said the same about Lovecraft or Poe.

I think Lovecraft would be very happy for the royalties he would receive thanks to the anime.
>>
Lovecraft liked anything anyone did with his mythos. He even stopped being such a racist before he died. He'd be impressed if anything that such a distant nation had such an interest and did something so strange with it. And in his letters he'd write little SoL situations like what if Cthulhu ruined the laundry.

At first he'd be sickened but curious at the apparent perversion of his stories but eventually he'll realize that the japs have actually turned his silly sea monsters into creatures that would devote their eternities wholly to obnoxiously torment a single individual far beyond the point of insanity and be awestruck at the inherent aptitude nips have for torture.

True story, HP Lovecraft was close friends with my great-grandfather. My grandfather would go with his dad over to Lovecraft's house in Rhode Island every once in a while, and Lovecraft was really nice to him and would tell him old German fairy tale stories every once in a while. My grandpa had no idea at the time that Lovecraft was a writer, or famous at all, because he just seemed like a normal guy, albeit a bit "sad".

As such, I believe this puts me in a greater position of authority than anyone else to say that he would have loved it and watched every episode multiple times.

Well, yeah, but you'd be too if you lived in New York.
He mellowed out a fair bit later in life though, but then he got stomach cancer when he was 30 and passed away.

The only reason we even know of him today is because his friends thought it was an unfair fate for him, and that people should know his writings, so they gathered his works and published them.

I would hesitate to call the entirety of Asimov's early work "shitty stories in shitty magazines". Aside from the fact that you're implicitly including Astounding Science Fiction among those "shitty magazines", he wrote stuff like Nightfall and his early robot stories before even getting the idea for Foundation, and they're still recognized as classics.

He didn't actually know any person belonging to the races he actually hated. As in he could talk shit about blacks all day, but he never knew a black person. He didn't hate Jews that much and then married one too, go figure.

He did, but not THAT much since he married one. He disliked them less than blacks for sure. He would start on about his admiration of Hitler's policies regarding Jews (he thought at the time that he was only segregating them and not killing anyone) and then his wife would toplel.

My comment was not about how we judge those magazines and stories today but how they were seen in the day. I love all Asimov's work including it's early work but it would be a mistake to imagine him like something else than a writer that made more than a few cents per (if he was lucky) published story as would be a mistake to consider Astounding Science Fiction (in the time) as more than a cheap magazine which readers were almost in it's entirety younger than 15 years old.

...You somehow seems to think that the Chaos Gods are in any way comparable to the Eldritch Horror that is Nyarlathotep. The Crawling Chaos doesn't need to leech power from emotions/war/change/whatever your puny "insert chaos god" ends up representing in order to wreck the whole of existence. Nyaruko herself would likely solo the entirety of the Imperium of Man until a frustrated Mahiro forks her into submission.

It really depends on which Chaos God you're referring to.

"Nyaruruko"
Problem solved.

i didn't say that, i just said she's a star-spawn, and she's not cthulhu.

>>100916651
Nigga you made it worse.

>>100916731

She's a Cthulhan, just like Nyaruko's entire species are referred to as Nyarlathotepians and Kuuko's are Cthugans.

But what if you're an astropath? If you were one and survived and came out of the soul-binding ordeal with your sanity intact, you'd carry a shard of the emperor's power in your soul.
>>
>>100916816
right, so she's not cthulhu. they made it seem like nyaruko is the nyarlathotep we refer to as nyarlathotep in the first episode of the second season, though, so you could sort of make that argument for nyaruko.

Not at all. The Chaos Gods are "omnipotent" only because they reside in the Immaterium and leech from common enough elements that they don't end up wasting all their power doing simple shit like manifesting daemons (as lesser gods might end up doing). Meanwhile, the big 3 of the Cthulhu Mythos are a literally omnipotent god, an omnipresent god, and Egyptian god troll Jesus. Said Egyptian troll happens to be the subconscious of the omnipotent god and just enjoys fucking around with mortals too much to hurry up and end existence.

>>100916348
Tzeentch is just the only one special enough to get power from anything that happens because "god of change". He wouldn't be stuck in the same tier as the others if it wasn't because the other 3 go out of their way to screw him over as much as possible.

>>100916936
It looks like she's formally recognized as "Nyarlathotep" for the sake of business. She represents herself as such in the first episode of both seasons, and is called as such by members of her organization in the episode with the robot modeled after her.

And yet he got married.

Besides, he at least got remembered after his death, that's more than anyone will ever have on /jp/, they're already forgotten, and their death will phase nobody.

Shitty writing and highly overrated? Yes, spot on.
>>
>>100915834

You're exaggerating when you say a few cents; his very first sales were all around fifty dollars per story. And Astounding's target demographic at the time Asimov started writing was solidly centered around older readers, that's one of the key changes instituted by John Campbell that made the magazine so influential. Astounding was one of the first science fiction magazines that enforced rigorous standards of quality.

>Shitty writing and highly overrated

Wasn't At the Mountains of Madness at the time that it was written considered drivel and absolute bollocks by most of the critics of the time?

Then it turned out to be one of the most existential and terrifying stories he's ever written.

I admittedly haven't read that story, my only Lovecraftian books/collection applies to Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos, which is anthology by other authors as well as Lovecraft... The Best of Lovecraft, and At the Mountains of Madness.

Admittedly, fucking Jerusalem's Lot by Stephen King (Prequel to Salem's Lot) was fucking horrifying as a Cthulhu Mythos story.

The MC is teenage Mary Clarissa Christie, yeah and the girlie next to Lovecraft is Derleth.

Genius! We need anime studios and mange publishers to change the covert art as well.

Literary recognition is shit though.
"Classic" writings like the Brontes and Woolfe were the Sex and the City of it's day.
