Softbank Creative's blog for its GA Bunko imprint has revealed on Tuesday that Manta Aisora's Haiyore! Nyaruko-san "high-tension, chaotic comedy" light novels are being adapted into a Flash anime project called Haiyoru! Nyaru-Ani. The story centers around Nyarlathotep, a formless Cthulhu deity who can take on the shape of anyone it wishes, but particularly the shape of a seemingly ordinary silver-haired girl. Mahiro Yasaka is a normal high school student who is chased by aliens one night, until "Nyaruko" saves him.
DLE, the studio behind the Eagle Talon Flash anime series, is producing Haiyoru! Nyaru-Ani. Azuma Tani is not only directing the anime project, but also DLE's Licca-chan to Mahō no Kuni Flash anime. According to a photograph of the anime script in Tuesday's blog entry, Aisora himself wrote the second script draft.
Aisora began his light novel series just this past April, and the third volume is being published this month. Koin (Kanokon) illustrates the light novels.
