I know Lovecraft was a hack but don't you think even he would be disappointed in this shit?
>>
He was not a hack and he would absolutely love this. I asked him.
>>
>>138678642
He'd probably pop a boner.
>>
Oh you asked him? Shit, my bad.
>>
>>138678642
I doubt he would care
>>
Nice bait shitlord.
>>
>>138678642
It seems like it's both cool and contrarian to hate on Lovecraft. I almost feel bad for him.
>>
>>138678642
fuck those glasses got me to hnggggg

But I don't think Lovecraft would care, and if he did he is too autistic to do anything about it.
>>
>>138678642
He's clearly claim Kuuko as his waifu
>>
>>138679255
>dead waifu
>>
>>138678642
Why is he mentioned on this board so much? Either way I think he'd be happy that his works have become cultural icons regardless of the context.
>>
>>138678991
Blame modern day hipsters.

If he's anything like me then he'd be pretty disappointed that it didn't live up to its premise.

Just another one of those shitty rom-coms with a Japanese schoolboy suddenly meeting a super special girl/alien/spirit/time traveller/monster/whatever the fuck and then spending 3 seasons giving them the cold shoulder whilst they think he's the coolest shit ever.

The lovecraft bit was the icing, rather than the actual cake. It's not anything you haven't seen a million times before or since.

That doesn't mean it was bad, it's just that it's so utterly basic and didn't even try to live up to its heritage.

>>138680781
First episode was really good, but then they toned it down for the rest of the series.
>>
>Lovecraft
>"your mind cannot comprehend how scary this thing is" x 100

Total hack.

How does a horror author relate to these cute anime grills?

t. uncultured pleb

He'd only be angry because Asians made it.
>>
>>138681305
Lovecraft didn't hate other races just for being other races per se, he hated primitiveness and decadency which he saw members of all races embodying to some degree. Sure, he especially focused on the strong correlation of this degeneracy and other races, but he also had the same vitriol for the inbred white New England hillbillies he portrayed in many of his stories. He was willing to marry a Jewish woman who he considered properly civilized, I'm sure he'd love to see what other sci-fi/horror/weird fiction creators did with his creation regardless of their ethnicity.

I'd rather not be violated by a cosmic horror
>>
>>138678642
This "Lovecraft would be spinning in his non-Euclidian grave" meme needs to die. If you actually read his many correspondences, you can see that he had a good sense of humor and jest about his and other author's cosmic horror works. I'm sure he would find the premise quite amusing (though he would probably hate the end product because of how shit it was at developing that premise).

He'd probably be impressed by the references and hidden puns. Some episodes had an obscene amount.

Doesn't she cannon turn into an actual slimy eldrich horror when the MC finally does in the LNs?

Same shit.

I don't understand how an anime done by XEBEC only had ONE pantyshot and no nipples anywhere. Why would you contract a studio and not use their main strengths?
>>
>>138679211
He has been dead for 90 years. A fellow can't get much more beyond caring than that.

That said, the standards of the time are decidedly against Nyarlko as we know her. Scandalous ladies fashions of the era included such outrageous things as hair cut above the shoulder and skirts that showed leg below the knee. In some places, even men weren't allowed to go topless at the beach.
>>
>>138681257
While I agree, the people who would later imagine the stuff would create some neat shit
>>
>>138678642
>I know Lovecraft was a hack
More talented than anyone who has won a hugo award in the last ten years.

Let's face facts. Modern writers suck. Even Lester Dent looks like genius compared to modern writers.

>but don't you think even he would be disappointed in this shit?
Did he hate asians as much as he hated black people and Italians?

I'd think he'd hate moe though.
>>
>>138681257
I never got that. No matter how horrifying a sight is it's not going to make me insane. At best I might have a heart attack from something terrifying, but even that's a stretch.
>>
>>138683195
>I think he'd hate moe
I'd bet he'd love moe. He was always disappointed with life, and never saw anything good in life. He would be exactly the type of person to obsess over moe.
>>
>>138683694
You're not supposed to "understand" how it works, because once you do, you'd be insane yourself with no way back. It's like death.
That's how I look at it anyway.
>>
He would probably just be deeply confused
I could not imagine someone who lived 100 years ago understanding modern anime in the slightest
>>
>>138683694
It's like trying to understand infinity, or how nothing and everything are the same thing.

Never went to that board.

I wouldn't say he's a hack, his stories just haven't age well. As a society we've become too nihilistic to find cosmic horror frightening.
>>
>>138678642

>caring what a hack thinks

That'd be like any given parody artist asking if it's okay to mock Harry Potter. Of course it's fine, it isn't high fucking art.
>>
>>138685630
Well, fedoras are cool because of that 30's feel at least.

What did he mean by this?

>>138678642
Are there any positive portrayals of niggers (i.e., as anything but subhuman filth created by eldrich horrors)?

If not, he'd probably be cool with it.
