Hayate no Gotoku!

Post by chaosprophet » Sun Apr 12, 2009 7:31 am

Just watched the second episode of HnG second season and I loved it! I liked how it they did a loyal adaptation to the manga without being a completely copy and paste ans made me laugh as much as the manga did. This made me remember why Nagi is 6th in my list. :D

Now the best part of this episode for me was:
HnG2 EP02Show
How they skipped the part with Hamster. I don't like that they skip a part in the manga but the way they did it was pure in. I totally forgive them! XP Anyway one episode of season one already was based on the one they skipped so that may be part of the reason they did it. And the sister is great too!
Love the ED too. Part for Hina but the main part for the trio! They're very funny.

I haven't watched episode 2. I haven't read the manga.

But I can tell you that episode 1 was win for several reasons. Some people claim that HnG S1 was more "carefree" and "satire" which was so different from the manga. Well I'll tell you this. I prefer the loose plot version of season 2 over the no plot version of season 1. It was still hilarious (maybe even more so) and there's something to look forward to in the next episode. I just cannot stand the episodic aspect for 52 episodes. S1 was something I don't look forward to every week but I still enjoy watching it. S2 is something I look forward to every week and I enjoy it. Naruto is something I look forward to ever week but usually I don't enjoy it.

Oh, and I didn't really love the Hina ED because Shizuka Itou can't really sing. The images were nice though.

I loved the ED song "Proof" by Mell for the first season so much, wish they'd somehow play that again. Then again, it's different seasons = different OSTs.

Well the manga was very carefree too but just like you said it had a loose plot that advance slowly and connect things (kind like To-Love-Ru manga). One thing that I dislike in the first season and some others manga readers disliked too is that while it's original episodes weren't that bad around half of the season was original episodes. But even at the time it was airing they still had lots of source material (and it was very good material IMO) probably enough to fill all 52 episodes and they chose to ignore it.

I'm curious. I don't detect any waver of the pitch, rhythm, diction, nor sound quality in the ED. Classically speaking, Shizuka did a good job singing. Of course, it would have been better if she knew how to sing Bel Canto, but that requires years of serious voice training.

I'm a big fan of the manga so I'm satisfied that they will start following the manga a lot more closely. This also means of course that we will get quite a lot of Hina-sama goodness in the near future (and Hermione :P )

You should. It gets better near the end imo. Started out well, middle was a bit dull, end was satisfactory.

Really? Then it makes sense why I stopped around episode 25.

Well that's good then. It means I'm not alone, and reinforces my comment above of liking manga material more!

Good that second season is cool. They don't go around skipping things from the source and when they do... they do it with style.

By the way, should I finish season 1? I have already watched episodes 37, 40, 48, and 50 because people told me those were the highlights. And personally, I found them to be quite good...I'm just not sure how good the rest of the fillers are.

Yeah, those 4 were the highlights. It wouldn't hurt to watch the last episode to see how they ended it.

p.s. I like the manga more too.

A agree about watching the last episode of the first season too. At least part of it is based in the manga.
