I know Lovecraft was a hack but don't you think even he would be disappointed in this shit?
Elder horrors are the best, but I probably only think that because my SAN is so low.
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.
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.
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).
>She is my waifu
Good taste, anon.
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?
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.
>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.
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.
>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.
>When, long ago, the gods created Earth
In Jove's fair image Man was shaped at birth.
>The beasts for lesser parts were next designed;
>Yet were they too remote from humankind.
>To fill the gap, and join the rest to Man,
Th'Olympian host conceiv'd a clever plan.
>A beast they wrought, in semi-human figure,
>Filled it with vice, and called the thing a Nigger.
What did he mean by this?
Is it at all necessary to take out the ''e'' like it has any emphasis whatsoever?
I don't know, pretty sure he would have been a Cthukofag.
