In Hayate’s quest to protect Nagi, Hayate gets to go back to high school by transferring into the same school Nagi goes to.
Most often times you will normally see a girl or a boy cook rather delicious food… for example, Akiko’s cooking (except the Jam…) and Usui’s “moe moe omelet” as shown in Episode 4. However, there is a dark side of good cooking… horrible tasting food! Food that doesn’t taste right or tastes funny. Not all cooks are created equal, but I will focus on some instances of horrible cooking in Anime I had watched so far.
Hayate and with him saving Nagi last episode make him realize that he must do something with his life other than just working the debt left… he must protect Nagi…
Remember as a child when you play video games, all in 8-bit or 16-bit graphics on our (Super) Nintendo or Sega game consoles? Some of us have encountered games that are Nintendo Hard, which made the game suck so badly because of bad controls, unfair gameplay or other things Well, Nagi decides to take out what looks like a Nintendo Famicom (or the original Nintendo) and go retro complete with the games and accessories including the RAGE. However, Nagi angered it and now the demon in the game wants revenge.
It’s also uncanny how they have the Power Glove in the background… It’s sooooo bad!
After finishing the first volume of Hayate no Gotoku (7 episodes), when I got to the 8th episode… I couldn’t believe what I have seen. This particular episode is named “Going to Hell in Cat-Ear Mode” or “neko mimi moodo de jigoku iki”. and guess what we see… Hayate in a cat girl outfit… It’s says what exactly on the tin!
What sorta interests me about this anime is pretty much the third episode of Nogizaka Haruka Purezza, although the parody of a episode is similar to Hayate no Gotoku, but the original always a bit better. Touka and Nagi, ironically is voiced by the supposed by the Queen of Tsundere, Kugimiya Rie, the voice of other famous loli-tsundere characters like Shana, Louise and Taiga.
From watching the first five episodes of Hayate no Gotoku, it was pretty entertaining comedy. Hayate, a unlucky, ordinary sixteen year old boy is forced to work since eight years old since his irresponsible parents and he ended up getting fired because of his age. Knowing that his parents sold him to some “very nice people” (actually a Yakuza, Japanese mafia) and he runs away. He ends up in the park and sees a little girl and then confess to her with his intentions to kidnap her, but that girl actually took the confession seriously. He tried his plan, but failed and collapses. A woman gives him a scarf and he wakes up. He finds out that Nagi was kidnapped, so he took the woman’s bike and cases after the kidnappers and eventually saves Nagi, but he was injured and he was treated at Nagi’s mansion where his wish comes true, he gets a job as Nagi’s butler. He becomes officially a butler after proving himself by defeating the robot, although he ended up getting electrocuted and having to be treated again.
The episodes were pretty funny and had several references to other anime and also a complete parody of the typical action shouen anime, although there isn’t really much action to be seen and it’s mainly for comedy purpose. Oddly enough, although Hayate is pretty strong, his appearance looks vastly young and rather effeminate, a main reason why Nagi and Maria would eventually dress him in feminine clothing… (haven’t got there, but it would be pretty funny.) Like always, Nagi is a uber tsundere paired with her twin tails… more so since she is voiced by the tsundere queen. The animation was good, so I have no complaints about it…
Would I continue…. Yes, I probably would, but I would get the DVDs first before continuing, but would I blog it… Not so much since the number of episodes are pretty big (52 episodes) and it would take alot of work to blog it. ¶
