Dread chibi gods?
As part of their on-going H.P. Lovecraft Cthulhu Mythos re-read on Tor.com, Ruthanna Emrys and Anne M. Pillsworth added a Japanese anime to the list of Mythos-related works. Kishin Houkou Demonbane follows the adventures of Kurou, a down-on-his-luck private detective/sorcerer in Arkham, who finds (or is found by) a copy of the dread Necronomicon. In the form of a young, violet-haired woman with aqua eyes, who seals their mystical bond with a kiss. Her magic enables Kurou to pilot a mecha (big battlebot) named Demonbane, built to fight against the minions and mecha of the evil Black Lodge. Including an avatar of the Pnakotic Manuscripts (appearing as a Goth girl in black dress, black ribbons, and sapphire eyes).
Aside from the “chibi” (short/cute) versions of Mythos books, and Arkham looking more like Gotham City than HPL’s Salem-inspired locale, the anime does cram in an amazing amount of Mythos individuals, items, and lore. So, Mythos fans who can tolerate a bit (or a lot, actually) of mighty machines battling and some (or a lot, actually) “fan service” images (several big, umm, “forewords”, those magical books seem to have) are in for a surprisingly bright and intriguing take on the dark Great Old Ones and their forbidden tomes.
