Never knew hand soaps were that powerful

Hayate no Gotoku

Isumi can be oh-so-cute whenever she’s always wanted to be taken seriously. ‘Hand soap’ power, LOL.

Hayate no Gotoku

And Hinagiku has finally developed some resistance(?) to Hayate’s charms.

Finally wrapped up another mini-arc. Next one should be the Hayate being nursed by Maria story, but the preview instead shows a shot of Nishizawa hugging Hayate. Are they immediately skipping straight to the Valentine’s arc?

    Aw come on ^_^

    Hayate successfully turned Hina into a tsundere (she never was one before, she was always very genuine). She went with “Hayate-kun” while talking about him with Nagi, but she gave him the death glare and “Ayasaki-kun” while with him. And we know for a fact why she came – “just passing through”, heh.

    But yes – she definitely developed a “grrrrr” shield for Hayate. Never piss off pink goddesses by abusing their weak points!

    Oh, and the Valentine’s Day arc is due exactly now. The other unrelated chapters around have already been handled in S1. So, ep4 will be the Valentine’s Day and one Maria chapter.

    Kay, I make a declaration for the future.

    If, in the end, Hayate does end up with Hina, I will lift my lifelong (actually, 2 or 3 year) ban on Hayate no Gotoku and read the entire fucking series.

    But not until then.

    And you’ve got a while to go before you can convince me to even THINK about reading anything by Ken Aku-whatever-his-name-is-su.

    Man… This has to be among my favourite HnG episodes… It even has “Za Warudo!!” and “soushite toki wo ugoki das”… But Hina’s tsuntsun has to be the best moment of the episode…

    Found the portrayal of the ‘Hayate no Gotoku’ signature move a little lacking though =x

    Well… in the beginning, I thought that Hina had the chance of a snowball in hell. Then I thought that she might have a loooooong long outsider upset shot. But nowadays I’d estimate her chances at 20%, and that’s a conservative guess.

    Why? Because Hata Kenjiro himself wrote in his blog that

    o He had potential 5 ending points laid out right from the beginning. In other words, the story WILL end (important!)

    o He wrote that out of all the other girls, only Hina and Maria were in the strike zone. So, at least he contemplates a non-Nagi ending.

    o Hina consistently massacres her competition in popularity polls. Like, she doesn’t merely win, she dominates. Here’s the latest results from chapter 218 (latest is 221):

    1. Katsura Hinagiku with 4185 votes
    2. Maria with 1814 votes
    3. Sanzenin Nagi with 1776 votes
    4. Ayasaki Hayate with 1366 votes
    5. Tennous Athene with 1008 votes

    Speaks for itself.

    @ Mentar

    Mhm, but the gap became smaller… In the fore-last poll, Hina was leading with more than 3000 votes!!

    By the way: Who´s Tennous Athene?

    What’s this “fore-last poll”? Haven’t heard of that one?

    Compared to the other poll I’m aware of, Hina won with 3800 to ~1700 votes for the second, so compared to that, the gap widened.

    Hinagiku owns. I suspect and hope that she will end up with hayate. the season 2 is featuring her more than nagi. either that or they are trying to make us hinagiku fans happy…

    Poor Isumi, never gets anything right. I think she meant “Hand Power” there. If she went to a funeral making a aspeech i bet she’d trip or mess up and everyone would actually laugh.
    Also, Hayate’s luck just keep getting worse. hehehe.
    By the way, may i inquire where you see hayate no gotoku? i cant find the episode 3 subs in english anywhere.

    Shirogane Kazuya: You can find the “legal” subs streaming on Crunchyroll, there’s rips of these subs from [HorribleSubs] and [Shinji] on, and finally there’s the [SS-Eclipse] version (which Kurogane is reviewing) also on or directly on

    The subs for the third episode have been out since late sunday.

    God I can’t wait for them to animate the chapters where Hayate asks Hinagiku out on a date to cheer her up after being asked by the council.
