Twelve Days of Anime #12 – Beware the Unspeakable Bar Thing!
December 15, 2012 3 Comments
Apparently it has become tradition among anime bloggers to share their favourite moments over the past year of anime. I wasn’t really involved with it last year, but decided to try it this year, while also being fashionably late and a day behind everyone else.
There was something wonderful about Haiyore! Nyaruko-san, and it wasn’t necessarily the humour, but rather the ridiculously over the top way that Asumi Kana managed to deliver her lines as Nyaruko. The way she never stopped talking, firing off random comments, thoughts, and general rubbish, all at about one thousand miles an hour, regardless of whatever else was happening around her. The way she continued to lead Mahiro around by the nose, while also using her job as his protector to buy all those delicious anime, manga and other goods that she couldn’t get hold of before. The over the top nature of Nyaruko truly carried the series and made her one of the most memorable characters of the year for me.
