"Japan has a habit of taking almost anything and creating a cute anime character out of it. The current insanely popular game in Japan is all about warships that have been morphed into ship girls and there has even been an anime about a little cockroach at one point. Nyaruko: Crawling With Love! is similar to these as it takes H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos and makes creatures of nightmare into cute girls. Adapted from a light novel and brought to us by the same studio that made girls out of guns, is Nyaruko: Crawling With Love! Season 1 worth picking up?"
