Back in August 2014, at the Nyakuro Final Countdown event, it was announced that in lieu of a third television series, they were going to do an OVA for the Haiyore! Nyaruko-san series instead. Tentatively labelled as “Haiyore! Nyaruko-san F”, their twitter @HaiyoreNyaruko has officially announced the title this morning, along with the key visual for the OVA as well as the first PV on their website.

Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos works, the 12-volume light novel series, written by Aisora Manta, portrays the madcap alien-bashing, fork-fearing, game-loving, tokusatsu-parodying Nyarlathotep (Nyaruko) as an inter-galactical Space Defence Agency peacekeeper who falls in love with a normal human Yasaka Mahiro while on a mission to protect him. She decides to stay on Earth, and along with her friends and rivals Cthugha (Kuuko) and Hastur (Hasta) end up in all sorts of comedic situations largely caused by themselves as they go about their duties while vying for Mahiro’s attentions.
The series’ popularity resulted in a simple flash-based OVA, and then exploded in recognition with the release of the first television series. The draw of the show was the whacky humour and tons of anime/game/Kamen Rider references of course, but the biggest reason was probably the ultra-catchy opening theme, which soon turned into an internet meme.
The madness continued with a second season,”Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W”, bringing about yet more characters and another catchy theme song designed to lower your sanity levels.
As of the moment, there is no announced release date or price range for the OVA.
…maybe we’ll get Haiyore! Nyaruko-san F Final as a continuation?
