Synopsis for Haiyore! Nyaruko-san
Mahiro Yasaka is an ordinary high school student, until one day he is suddenly attacked by a dangerous monster. When all seems lost, he is saved by a silver-haired girl named Nyaruko, who claims to be the shape-shifting deity, Nyarlathotep, from horror author H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, sent by the Space Defense Agency to Earth. He explains to Mahiro that the creature chasing him is an alien named Nightgaunt, who has planned to kidnap him and sell him into slavery.
After rescuing him from the alien, the Lovecraftian deity falls madly in love with Mahiro and breaks into his home, much to Mahiro’s annoyance. Also, they are soon joined by two other people from the fictional universe: Cthuko, a girl obsessed with Nyaruko, and Hasuta, a young man who is easily mistaken for a beautiful woman. Together, the three eccentric aliens protect Mahiro from the various extraterrestrial dangers that threaten his well-being and that of Earth, while making his life hell.
