One of the things about Hayate no Gotoku that I enjoy a lot is some of the battle scenes. Reading it in the manga is definitely exciting but in an anime, you know it can be exceptionally good. Since Hayate no Gotoku anime is known for a pretty good consistent quality, seeing a fight scene animated just makes it that much more awesome. The bout between Hinagiku and Sonia, even though it was short, was really awesome and makes me wish there was more of it. Alas this series is more about comedy so I doubt we’ll see any prolonged battles throughout the series.
Still the main attraction of this episode was Hayate’s special move. Seriously when I read this part in the manga I thought OMFG, and I thought the same when watching this. It’s been a while since they mentioned Hayate developing a special move and it’s about time they covered this part. Personally I think it should’ve been covered in the first season. So far it seems to me that J.C Staff are picking out some of the better sections of the manga but I still question how many episodes this season will be.
Hinagiku certainly is a colourful character. She just happens to be “passing by” and helping Hayate and Nagi along the way, but deep down she knew she wanted to help. Still seeing her snap between deredere and tsuntsun is quite a joy. I also noticed that Ayumu didn’t make some kind of random appearance. Sacrilege! They should’ve keep her unbroken record going, even if it was just a totally random scene. We’re also introduced to the Father responsible for creating the dungeon and I’m sure we’ll be seeing him more often over the next few episodes.
Next episode seems to be about Hayate and Ayumu. Also I’m starting to get annoyed of seeing the quick recap at the end of each episode since it takes up most of the preview. What’s the go with that?
