Maria, the runner up in the popularity contest, goes on the offense and calls out Hinagiku’s small breasts! Oh now it’s on!
I feel a bit trolled here. Where’s my hot spring episode? While I don’t mind them playing things out a bit more, I was expecting some bare shoulders and a lot of steam covering up the “goods” this week. (Hmm… wait a second, have I grown accustomed to expecting so little from hot spring fan-service episodes? T_T)
Hayate learns the harsh reality of telling a girl the truth about how she looks. “Honestly, how do I look?” is a TRAP.
It was amusing to see everyone’s reason for wanting to go to the Shimoda hot spring though. Ayumu: studies, Isumi: powers, Nagi: growth, but most of all Hinagiku wanting larger breasts. It looks like the effects of being all lovey-dovey over Hayate has finally gotten our student council president concerned about her appearance.
Ayumu looking good. Bicycles, the real way commoners travel.
Oh that train ticket won’t do you shit now Nagi. Ayumu’s not looking so dumb now is she!
The appearance of Hinagiku this week made me forgive them for faking me out with the episode title.
Episode +100 points. Hina looks better in everyday clothes…
…and is cute as hell when she’s all flustered. (cue in Yui and Ritsu) Moe~
Personally, I’m quite cautious with my finances so I can fully appreciate Hayate’s views on money. Damn ridiculously rich people! Anyway, an episode of Hayate wouldn’t be quite complete without our good ‘ol butler pulling off some crazy stuff right?
As the voice of heaven points out, don’t try this at home kids. You WILL die.
Even being run over by a truck can’t hold our butler down! Flash cool pose.
What’s wrong with this picture? Buff ramen chef in a pink apron? No, that’s not it…
At times, I still wrestle with the idea of who has the most “honest” love for Hayate. Since Nagi’s a controlling freak and Hinagiku’s been pretty dishonest with herself, Ayumu’s probably it. I mean, she’s the only one that’s actually confessed thus far, plus she plays the token childhood friend-like character. I guess this is probably why she’s my second pick among Hayate’s love candidates.
The proper way to have a picture on your cellphone. Not like that stalker-ish freak Makoto from School Days.
This probably isn’t the best way to ride a bicycle with a short skirt like that. I doubt the people behind would complain though…
Hitmen on cue. At least they were nice enough to ask which one of them is Sanzenin Nagi. You should always be courteous to others!
I LOL’d. It’s not like Ayumu didn’t ask for it.
Based on the preview, we should be getting an actual hot spring episode next week. It seems like my spunky, Kansai-ben speaking favorite Sakuya will be making an appearance too. Hurray to bare shoulders!
This scene would’ve been a million times better if it was Hina instead of Nagi. Mmm… Hina…
Since episode titles don’t seem to mean much, I’m going to read literally into the next one, “Stardust Memory”, and break out some old school Gundam 0083 “Men of Destiny”. Who’s with me!?
