Genre:Comedy, Action, Harem, Love Polygon, Aliens, Fantasy, Parody, Yuri, Yaoi
Plot: 5/10

Nyarlathotep (in short Nyaruko), an alien from outta space is send to earth to protect a young boy from getting kidnapped by some evil creatures. Unfortunately, after finishing her mission, she ends up falling in love with him and decides to stay a little longer, to assure Mahiro’s safety.
And that’s it, everything that happens from the moment Nyaruko decides to stay at Mahiro’s place, is random, confusing and doesn’t really make any sense. But that’s exactly what this anime wants to look like and in fact the wackiness of this story is what made me watch this show in the first place.
