Review by Clark A.
The villains Nyaruko is tasked with protecting Mahiro from are equally zany. Highlights include an organisation bent on turning Mahiro into a yaoi actor and a pro-censorship alien who believes wiping out humanity is the only way to atone for the eroticism in Japanese culture contaminating the minds of children. And in case that wasn’t an adequate indicator of the show’s fascination with weird sexualised humour, also expect some wildly sexual absurdity along the way that doesn’t involve the bad guys.
Above all, Nyaruko: Crawling With Love! is a fun, relaxing show that won’t rack your brain. Granted, you’ll need considerable knowledge of Japanese media to actually spot and process all of its humour, but the wacky premise always meant it was going to be a niche show geared towards the sufficiently-informed otaku. If nothing else, it’s worth buying just to loop the show’s infectiously catchy opening theme and drive everyone around you bonkers.
