|Reviews for The Shadow over Nishinomiya|

Ahh... I get it.
Three years ago Haruhi heard about some kind of occult Cthulhu blood ritual and, having the common sense of a dolphin, she figured it would be a good idea to give it a try and see what happened. She screwed up and got possessed by a Lovecraftian God who finds her amusing enough to keep a fraction of her conscious around.
Pretty cool considering most people would consider being trapped inside their own body to be a fate worse than death yet Haruhi is loving every second, I totally believe that.

There are Japanese works that reference Lovecraft, but is this one of them?
| Guest chapter 8 . 11/11/2014
One hell of a ride, that was.

For pity's sake, ARE they part of the Mythos?
| Mader Levap chapter 7 . 11/4/2013
Well, NOW that was story with really, really bad end.
BTW some reviewers below (and undoubtedly above) seems to not understand concept of crossover. Sigh.

Japanese characters are part of the Lovecraft Mythos. Really?

"They looked almost like starfish, except that they had six arms and each must have weighed at least 200 kg."

Characters from a Japanese anime are really part of Lovecraft's mythos? You really think so?
| Dogbreathsan chapter 7 . 4/1/2013
Way cool. This went a direction I'd never had thought of, a direction I didn't catch on to until Chapter 5.
Congratulations, and thank you very much.

"Uh, excuse me," I said to the dweller in darkness
This is a freaking classic line! I love it!
Let's see how this thing goes.
OK, a review of sorts.
Well constructed. I'm enjoying the search for Mythos references.
Very nice. I wonder if Koizumi will have the 'Nishinomiya' look about him?

Do Lovecraft's writings apply to a Japanese anime which is, by it's very nature, different?
| Miguel51 chapter 7 . 7/25/2012
That a fun, if slightly disturbing read. Well done.

The implication was meant to be that the English word "Dragon" was a corruption of "Dagon", but they were speaking Japanese so it didn't directly apply in this context. The two gods had been around for a longer than any human language so they've accumulated a lot of cultural references.
Plus the Lovecraftian stuff used in this story is clearly variant with single-sex Deep Ones and so on.
One of the items I'm considering for a rewrite would be to add in Kyon's dreams of his "past lives", including his "fight" with St. George. (For kicks.)
