SPOILER Summary/Synopsis

Mihiro finds himself literally within the confines of an RPG.

Haiyoru! Nyaru-ani: Remember My Mr. Lovecraft - 09

That’s because an hour earlier, Nyarlko asked him to play an RPG that Atoko had picked up, which Atako calls a Virtual Reality game.

So he agrees to play and now he’s just about out of hit points in the game but has a ton of magic points which he doesn’t know how to use.

He then encounters a monster who asks if he wants power.

He does and receives a flask that boinks him on the head as it falls.

He’s not pleased about it and vows never to play an RPG with them again.

Fourteen days until the cuboid comes to Earth.

Thoughts/Review

Well, it wasn’t funny but as a long-time player of RPG’s, going back to the days of Rogue (which I still play to this day on occasion — good thing that this old color, ASCII graphic game doesn’t require an install), I did appreciate this little parody about playing RPG games. Man, how many “pure,” fantasy, computer RPG’s have I played in my life?  A ton to be sure with games like NetHack, Bard’s Tale, Ultima I IV (with Ultima III being the first multi-character RPG), Pool of Radiance (the first D&D computer RPG), the various Might and Magic titles, Dungeon Siege (and DSII), and more that I can’t remember.  I think the last one I bought was Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and I never finished it for some reason.  I just don’t have the time for games any more. 🙁

I believe the game the girls had was a Final Fantasy game (or parody thereof).  Never played those.

So, an OK parody for what it was worth.

    The “UI” in the corner makes me think it’s more likely parodying Dragon Warrior a bit more than Final Fantasy. Not to mention the fork as a weapon, with Dragon Warrior often having quirky things like that.

  2. AstroNerdBoy says:

    That may be true as I don’t know Dragon Warrior but the case Nyarlko is holding says “Final Fantasy.” ^_^

  3. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Actually, it says “Final Fantasy Star XIII” to be precise.

  4. Manae says:

    Probably would have helped if I enlarged the images to see that. 😛 I mixed up my games, anyway, though. It’s Dragon Quest that tends to have the quirky items and monsters, so including the game box seems to be an amalgam of four of the major Japanese RPG franchises.

    And to further confuse things, most (if not all) of the Dragon Quest games up through number 7 went under the title Dragon Warrior in the US…

    My version of Rogue doesn’t have Gnomes…at least I don’t think. ^_^

    Wait, there’s a “d” there so that means NetHack. *lol* I need to score a copy of NetHack. I remember one of the fun things about that game was dying and then starting over with a new character and then eventually running into the ghost of your former character. If you won your old dog over and slew your ghost, you could score your former gear which rocked.
