What would H. P. Lovecraft think of this series?
Nyaruko would be his waifu.
That's an odd way of spelling Kuuko
Yeah a shitty dime horror writer really has a reason to be indignant over comedy light novels.
I HATE IT!!!
He hates it!
Personally, i always enjoyed the anon who said "spinning in his grave? hell, he'd be breakdancing!"
But Lovecraft's alleged grave is empty. He escaped through subterranean tunnels.
>capping that dumb post
>shitty dime horror writer
>one of the most influential and well known of the genre
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.
Be happy that the best girl is modeled after his works.
I think he would うー！, then he would にゃー！
Too much women and gooks in it.
if H.P. LovePlus were alive he'd be posting on /pol/ about how degenerate anime is.
I actually think he might be flattered, the guy was poorer then hell and died with recognition.
Lovecraft is moe, so he'd probably be ok with it. And it's not like the people messing with his work were niggers or anything.
Fap furiously, what else?
He would think that we had this exact thread a billion timnes already.
/a/ has lost its way.
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.
Lovecraft had a soft spot for parody, I'm sure he'd be alright with it.
He'd probably be terrified that the savage Asiatic hordes knew who he was.
He would freak out the moment he heard them speaking foreign, and run away before he realised what it was about.
As long as it doesn't feature any savage negroes,he'd be fine with it.
>Same thread billion of times
>Not /a/'s way
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.
I see what you did there.
So was Poe, even more with his colorful behavior.
Yes, yes he was. That's why his wife died a painful and slow death and he died like a drunkard in the street.
Poe had a hard life.
You can't rape the willing. Nyaruko can rape me anyday.
Fuck everything, I just want Ika x Nyaruko doujin.
May the best squid win.
he would hate it, not because its twisting his monsters into cute girls, but because its from japan
Lovecraft was a huge xenophobic and racist person
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.
>lowest of the low in lit circles
Well, that's how most of the greats started anyways.
H. P. Lovecraft hated Japs.
Maybe. But my point is that he wasn't some kind of recognized writer who would horrorized by the anime, because his own writings were considered low art and part of the vulgar pop culture of his time.
>SoL situations like what if Cthulhu ruined the laundry.
I'd read that.
One of Lovecraft's "horrifying monsters that cannot be" was a person with one black parent and one white one. So yeah...
Really? This sounds like a case for Jack Walters
> tfw manga and anime will be considered high art in 80 years and loved by hipsters and intelectuals
He is still reassembling it.
>Needs more niggers
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.
I would fucking kill something if that gave me the chance to go back in time and show still alive Lovecraft what the horrible horrible japs did to his crawling chaos. Just seeing his reaction would be hilarious.
Anime is very vulgar as well, pot meets kettle.
That sounds pretty horrifying.
I love how he fits the description of his creatures. Great writer tho.
Lovecraft's creature descriptions are often too horrible to be described, the exception being "At the Mountains of Madness"
Will Ecce Mono jokes ever get old?
Exactly. That's the point.
If lovecraft saw nyaruko today hed be impressed at how much your SAN meter would drop just by watching it .
And if anything lovecraft would state that moe is much scarier then unknown terrors
Moe can turn men into blubbering useless meat that only seek more of it plunging them into insanity
Then he becomes a harem LN writer
Oh well they only look like that for a while im sure theyll start shapeshifting later on
His spirit lives on with the Sakura worms.
>All this love of chaos
You are all heretic scum
Is this series any good? I've seen Nyaruko posted on /a/ alot so I figured I'd give it a try.
These tapestries still crack me up 7 years later
is he the evangelion of horror books?
First season's ok. Second's dumb as hell but if that's what you're looking for you'll probably enjoy it.
It's fun. Great OP's and ED's
He had a cat named "Nigger Man". I always thought that was a great name for a cat.
It's shit, but it's still enjoyable.
>It's shit, but it's still enjoyable.
Thanks anon, for describing every anime ever
>tfw you were born too early to be considered a recognized authority on the subject of shit taste and waifu quality
>can't get your Ph D. in a waifu yet
phd stands for pretty huge dick
Try nyaruref blogspot
>your offspring will never crawl from the chaos and gargle its first 'daddy' in tongues incomprehensible to man
>you will never see your offspring drive its first human face rippingly mad
He'd shoot himself in the dick because this series is awful at being comedy and even wrose at being a Lovecraft parody.
See Hoozuki for a recent example of how proper parody is done.
Another proof of why chinks are a bunch of racially degenerate apes and should be expulsed from America
this show is better at random anime and video game references than lovecraft
They have cultist-chan
We can't help
Demonbane is a pretty decent Lovecraft parody.
Demonbane is supposed to be a parody?
It's not as silly as Nyaruko was, but yeah pretty clearly was, even if it does have some serious parts too.
What is Hoozuki a parody of, though?
Spin in his grave at the speed of light
It fucks modern physics.
I WOULD stick my dick in chaos.
And then take responsibility while cuddling and holding hands
It's too hard to pick between Nyaruko and Kuuko. Can you pick both without dying?
Only if Nyaruko bears Kuuko's baby and you bears Kuuko's.
You guys actually buy these things? How lame.
Now that's just uncalled for.
Whose baby you want to bear?
It's pretty easy, actually.
This anime is absolute garbage dropped after second episode. HP lovecraft is disappointed.
Shit taste detected.
We'll miss you.
Why do people say Nyaruko instead of Nyarlko and Kuuko instead of Cthuko?
Don't you even know what names these are parodying?
>her hands are tied
Ya blew it.
I'd feel really bad for Nyaruko if I picked Kuuko and completely ignored her, and Kuuko probably wouldn't want to hurt Nyaruko like that either
Point your shit taste detector away from yourself ya dingus
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.
>Lovecraft was a huge xenophobic and racist person
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.
obviously I would untie 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.
>Likes all games
Also, just look at this qt.
It was that kind of time, most people hated the Japs, often for the horrible shit Imperial Japan was up to (they were frankly worse than the Nazis). American Japs, who had nothing to do with what their homeland was doing, got *significant* shit for it.
I like the vulgarity (._. )
Anyway, what happened with that countdown thing from last year? I assume s3 wasn't announced because I would've saw that in some thread.
It was announced but no one cared b ecause NYaruko is shit.
They released a box set with bonus material.
> It was announced
What? When? Why nobody told be? Time to buy champagne
Lovecraft hated the entire human race.
That's not what my 2D porn games tell me.
Box set of what? s2?
Lovecraft was hella devoted and do anything for his waifu man.
I doubt he ever even met a Jap, maybe a Chinese since he was in New York and New England. Wouldn't have mattered what the Japanese did, he died before Nanking.
That guy's supposed to be Lovecraft?
>tfw I typed this, then it jams on that line and types random gibberish for naruko-san's description
>it's happening doushio
Yeah, pretty much.
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.
Also he could write a 40-page letter on his hate and dislike on everything not WASP but apparently was a very gentle guy in person and never acted like shit to anyone from any race.
>He didn't hate Jews that much
I thought he kind of did? And then his wife would laugh when he'd start, saying something akin to "Honey, remember who you're married to.
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.
The Emperor will have your head for such heresy scum.
Wasn't he just a side character in that VN, while the female main character's name was a reference to a writer?
Warhammer is shit
It's very, very silly but that's what's great about it. Of course you need to be looking for something silly to watch to enjoy it.
You're waifu is shit
...Kinda late since the Crawling Chaos already had his SAN.
That's not possible, considering the Emps slapped all 4 Chaos gods at the same time without suffering any ill effects.
Big E is too overpowered. He'd break almost any universe hes thrown into so show mercy to Nyaruku and company, please.
Great Old Ones and Outer Gods are at least on the same level as the Chaos gods (IMO stronger, if you go by the implications) so they'd be fine, but of course this anime's characters do not count as such.
Not maddening enough.
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.
he wouldn't like it.
lovecraft was really opressed sexually
>tfw almost all old famous book writers you can think off were penpals with other famous book writers
lovecraft was friends with THE CREATOR OF CONAN HOLY FUCK
...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.
>Emperor of Mankind
>LITERALLY A BEACON OF LIGHT IN THE SWIRLING BLACKNESS OF CHAOTIC SPACE
>PSYCHICALLY GUIDING ALL OF HIS CHILDREN THROUGHOUT THE COSMOS TO MATER TERRA
>WHILE BEING MOSTLY DEAD ON A THRONE
>My fucking face when you will never bask in the glorious radiance of the Emperor before you're sacrificed as one of the hundreds of thousands of psykers required each day to keep him alive
>...You somehow seems to think that the Chaos Gods are in any way comparable to the Eldritch Horror that is Nyarlathotep
Can you please masturbate to you precious emperor in the proper board?
Nyaru for Nyar-, Kuuko I don't know, it just doesn't work. Just a fuck up is my best guess.
It really depends on which Chaos God you're referring to.
I have no doubt that Tzeentch is just as much of a manipulative and reality warping cunt as Nyarlathotep. Especially since out of all four of them he's the most fucking subtle.
>There are people who think Luhy Distone isn't Lovecraft's waifu
>When she's goddamned Cthulhu
What would he think of Demonbane?
>There are people who think Luhy Distone isn't Lovecraft's waifu
>When she's goddamned Cthulhu
no she's not, she's just a star-spawn
No we at /tg/ don't want him back, he's all yours now /a/
Because there is no way to write the original names in kana and if something cannot be writen in kana it cannot be pronounced by a Japanese.
Alexander Dumas' 'The Count of Monte Cristo' was considered pleb stuff when it was written as well but look at it now!
Not everything termed 'classic' in todays age started out as 'classics' back then. Even Shakespeare was just one of many in his day before the momentum behind his popularity really took off.
>Not wanting to ia ia ftaghn Luhy anyway
What are you, some kind of faggot?
>there is no way to write the original names in kana
i didn't say that, i just said she's a star-spawn, and she's not cthulhu.
Nigga you made it worse.
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.
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.
>Implying all Nyarlathotepians aren't just fragmented bodies of Nyarlathotep himself
>Kind of like how Hassan il-Sabbah would compartmentalize his personas in Nasuverse
well you're certainly free to believe that, i suppose
He would hate the Souka Gakkai values in it
Lovecraft was a racist NEET hikky. I bet if he lived today he'd go to /jp/ and have a million Nyaruko figures.
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.
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.
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.
Nyaruko best waifu
Does he have a reincarnation in Nobunagun?
Every time, always and forever.
And then there's this faggot.
I never got what "frenchman" is supposed to mean in this context.
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.
The British and the French hated each other about as much as the Dwarves and Elves do back in the middle ages.
The english and french are natural enemies
>The British and the French hated each other
Well that I knew, I just didn't draw a connection between French and the English from the mere mention of "frenchman".
>I'M SO FUCKING COOL!!!!!!!!
Well other than soccer matches they don't have any other way of revealing their rivaliries
Headcanon doesn't count for much in real life.
I've run into Britbongistanians that hadn't heard about it.
I hate it
Shitty writing and highly overrated? Yes, spot on.
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.
>I'm a teenager and I have no clue what he's talking about because I've never actually read Lovecraft and do not know anything about the type of magazines his stories were found in.
>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.
>complaining about books you've never read
To be fair The Case of Charles Dexter Ward could be shorter. It gives this dragging feeling when you read it.
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.

I always just assumed "eldritch abomination" was translated into "terrible Frenchman" by the ye olde text generator (that is if it even is a text generator idk)
> Campbell changed the approach to the magazine's cover art, hoping that more mature artwork would attract more adult readers and enable them to carry the magazine without embarrassment.
Genius! We need anime studios and mange publishers to change the covert art as well.
Is he that one tripfag from /vn/?
> manga* publishers
There isn't a text generator.
But what is "covert art"?
I don't go to /vn/ since I'm not some EOP, but he does shitpost on /jp/ a lot. He's disgusting, and there isn't a single person on the planet that I want to punish more.
it's suddenly slightly less entertaining now
No need to get jealous just because people had a better education than you.
>but the medium that published his stories (magazines) was not much more literary recognized than LN's or anime.
Literary recognition is shit though.
"Classic" writings like the Brontes and Woolfe were the Sex and the City of it's day.
no jealousy just disappointment
How would be a non embarrassing cover for K-ON?
Sounds like him.
he would love it , he was a fucked up guy
>That kuuko doll.
Every time I've seen this I've been too busy staring at those delicious thighs to notice that.
That'd be easy. Just a shot of an arm holding Yui's Gibson taken from behind. No/minimal background. I tried to make a mockup in paint but it was so awful even I got confused looking at it.
I find it amusing that the novels have adapted the Magical Girl Nyarko episode into a chapter.
Would you accept Shantak's love?
