Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos!

I’ve written in the past about the Lovecraft-anime connection for io9.com, as well as a sidebar way back when in Michael Dziesinski’s Secrets of Japan Call of Cthulhu supplement.

But now, I’m doing a whole series of articles on the Mythos for the Crunchyroll release of the new anime “Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos”, based on the timeless premise “What if Nyarlathotep took the form of a cute girl with a vaguely tentacle-like forelock of hair hanging down over his/her/its forehead?” It’s based on the light novels by Manta Aisora, and in April Crunchyroll will be simultaneously debuting the English release of the new Japanese TV series. So RUN SCREAMING, don’t walk, over to Crunchyroll to check out my first article, The Nyarko-san Chronicles: What is the Cthulhu Mythos?! I’ve never seen an anime with so many references to SAN points!


New Nyarko-san Article

Hey all! I’ve got a new article over on Crunchyroll titled Who The Heck is Nyarlathotep, Anyway? If you’re already reading this blog, you may think you know the answer, but browse over to discover the connections between a tentacle-headed Other God and silver-haired girl with an ahoge.

More Nyarko-san: The Cthugha Connection

Here’s my latest article on the moe-ification of the Cthulhu Mythos courtesy of Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos! This week I answer the timeless question, “Is Kuko Cthulhu?” (Spoiler: she’s actually supposed to be Cthugha, of course.)


New Nyarko-san Article: The Derleth Mythos Explained!

One of the entertaining things for Lovecraft fans about the “Nyarko-san” anime is the cameos of August Derleth and H.P. Lovecraft that appear in it (as faces on T-shirts, pictures in the background, etc.). Over at Crunchyroll, my latest Nyarko-san article just went up, in which I explain the story of Lovecraft and Derleth and the differences between the “Lovecraft Mythos” and the “Derleth Mythos.” Plus, I came up with my own new Great Old One!! Go read it!
