Warning this review may contain spoilers-
So the Haiyore! Nyaruko-san series is probably one of the only series thatis ecchi but can make me laugh to myself like a crazy person while people are around. Then they give you that look because you are laughing to yourself, yeah. Anyway to the review, this is a review for the second series of Haiyore! Nyaruko-san.
So the great thing about this franchise is that it is comedy and completely random most of the time. The thing about the story is that there isn't any, it is made for comedy and only that really. So if you are looking for a light series that is heavily comedic then here is a good one, the others of you who want a serious series that actually has a story this franchise is a no-no for you.
The animation seemed alright mostly, there were some more zoomed out scenes that looked a bit strange if you had like two characters on their own. Other than that everything is good.
How can you not love that theme song? The music is catchy, the lyrics are random and it all is a bit of fun. The endings were cute and enjoyable. The voiceacting was all good, I felt that each characters voice actor was chosen well and represented their personalities.
So the characters are all so light and random, each give a contrast to the series. And in the end they all add that comedy element. I haven't really got much to say on this matter.
That ends another review then.

Never in my life did I think that Haiyore! Nyaruko-san would get a sequel but here we are. I won't sugarcoat this; it's garbage.
Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W is by far one of the most generic shows I have seen in some time. Its first season was barely passable as an anime and by god this season remains the same. The story picks off directly after the first with Mahiro housing crime fighting Nyaruko, Cthuko, and Hasuta. A bunch of stuff happens where the gang has to defeat bad guys bla bla bla. While I wish I could tell you what they did this season…I cannot recollect what the hell went on. I was just so mind numbingly bored that nothing really stuck through. The whole Nyaruko crushing on Mahiro continues this season with Cthuko even edging towards “the boy” early on in certain moments. These passes towards Mahiro though are a sad excuse for character development.
Passable for maybe a 2010 anime. Some shots look good but they are far and few between.
The voice actors did an ok job but since they mutter the same lines over and over again it gets quite boring and annoying. “Mahiro-san! Mahiro-san! Mahiro-san! Mahiro-san!” SHUT THE F$%K UP ALREADY! Also the generic soundtrack didn’t help the show out very much.
Every character in this anime is just an empty shell of some sort of character type used in most anime. You have the shy (and over used) annoying male lead, the asserting female lead, and oh and a boy who wants Mahiro’s “D” and a girl who will swing for both teams. The characters did a piss poor job of providing any fun scenes. Literally every episode boils down to Nyaruko trying to get Mahiro to do something romantic while Cthuko and Hasuta try to cock block Nyaruko. Every episode just feels like the same events over and over and over again.
The funny thing is this review is probably way too generous. The only reason I bothered finishing this season is because a friend overseas somehow likes the show and it provides funny things to rant on. I have no idea how people support this sorry excuse for an anime when all it can muster is average at best quality. The characters are annoying, the sound is average, the animation is garbage by today’s standards, and the plot is so unattractive; do yourself a favor and stay far away from this mess.
