Nyaruko was from the outer space, somewhere unknown to humankind. she met with Mahiro, her only human friend on earth. however at the same time, the powerful ones from myths were coming to earth, targeting Nyaruko and Mahiro. Mahiro was utterly clueless about Nyaruko's true nature. despite his love for peace, he was dragged into crisis after crisis by Nyaruko. to make things interesting, the myths characters often took the appearance of a cute girl or boy.
despite the beautiful visual, Haiyore! Nyaruko-san (2012) was somewhat typical. there were no special plot, just some random events thrown together. the comedies were overused and repetitive, making it tiring at some point. the strength of Haiyore! Nyaruko-san (2012) probably laid within its characters. they were memorable and each unique in their own style. it can be entertaining if the focus was on looking at the beautiful characters and visuals, while paying less attention to its storyline.
