NISA Loses the Rights to Nyaruko: Crawling With Love! Anime

Much like the creeping chaos, Nyaruko is ready to spiral toward oblivion.

On September 5, retailer Right Stuf announced that Nyaruko: Crawling With Love! went out of print. News site Anime News Network confirmed a day later that NISA’s license to the show has officially expired.

Nyaruko: Crawling With Love! is a 2012 series from studio Xebec. Tsuyoshi Nagasawa (Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs, Clockwork Planet) directed the project, which features character designs by Masaaki Takiyama (Fate/Extra Last Encore, Tokyo ESP). Noboru Kimura (Doki Doki School Hours, Amagami SS+) was in charge of series composition for the show.

NIS America describes the series as:

Mahiro Yasaka finds his quiet life thrown into chaos when he’s attacked one night by a fearsome demon. Luckily for Mahiro, Nyaruko, the Crawling Chaos, has been sent by the Planetary Defense Agency to protect him. It turns out all of the creatures from Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos are in fact just aliens!

Soon enough, Kuko, the Ravenous Chaos, and Hasuta, the Deity of Wind, have entwined themselves in Mahiro’s life as well. Follow Mahiro and gang as they fight for their lives, learn about love, discover intergalactic video games, and perhaps even save the world!
