Great coloring ! You can practically feel the sunshine pouring through the swaying leaves on the trees, and how warm it makes Izumi's dress. I'm fond of all the cast of Hayate the Combat Butler, but the loveable ditz Izumi Segawa is probably my favorite.
I think Hayate has become an official Favorite for me. Bigger than Digimon or any of those other shows I considered favorites.
However, after seeing the Animax dub, I've been frantically searching for a DVD/BD release with it on. Why Bandai couldn't release the Animax dub, it's out of my hands to answer. It might explain why Bandai doesn't exist anymore. (I consider it savings-grace for them disbanding.) Favorite Animax DUB character: Claus and his French accent.
I anxiously await the 3rd Season (Fall 2012).
--- Anyways, I always felt sorry for Izumi. I hope that Hayate can at least give her an answer in this next season. (Haven't read the manga yet.)---
They really need to make a Visual Novel allowing you to choose which one Hayate ends up with. I'm kind of loosely with Izumi or Maria. Hinagiku and Nagi are both cute, but just don't see as winning matches.
i'm still vote A-tan for Hayate.if you don't know her (please read the manga^^) and there's no 3rd season will be made but the new series but the new hayate no gotoku : Can't take off my eyes off you based on hata's story on October 2012.the rumor said that a-tan doesn't showing up on this series but ruka will be the new girl who coming on this series~
In other words, it's like Oh My Goddess to Ah! My Goddess.... (God why didn't they finish Ah My Goddess...sniff.sniff...)
Figures. J.C.Staff didn't want to finish what they'd started so a new company goes in and tries to undo what J.C.Staff did.
As for the Manga, I haven't read it, but hope to at some point. (Not a whole lot of time for reading. --- Actually not a whole lot of time for Watching either. That's why it was nice when I saw the Animax Dub to Hayate (Seasons 1 and 2). I was able to work on my projects while having Hayate running in the back ground.)
well,it's better to read the manga~ and i still updating till now~
well,that was so sad when j.c staff couldn't stay on what they started.and since that Manglobe came and make a fully remake of anime.the first caught my eyes is incredibly worst and weird.it's on movie series Hayate No Gotoku : Heaven Is a Place on Earth. and i keep searching a news about a "new Hng" that will be released this fall.and one day i found something on doughnout gunso and akibaba.i see the character design and... tadaaa..>> [link] "Oh my god,this is incredibly worst"
but when i saw,the PV, [link] well it's not worst than i thought.well even so,i still weird with the remake.especially the "smiles" and the "Mansion" (totally different)
We STILL have seasons 1 and 2- ---- That's 77 Episodes (52+25) of Non-stop Hayate.
As for the movie: I agree the 45 Minute mess they created was a huge disappointment to me. It's Hayate done in the Digimon Movies Style... The Anime was good, but the movie was given 0 budget.
(Then again nothing can top how bad Negima's Manga to Anime transition was. The Anime creators messed it up SO bad that the only way they could redeem themselves was to start Fresh over and purposely stay CLEAR of any of Akamatsu's storyline (Coining "Negima!?") Though it was better than the first season, still no where near as good as it COULD have been had they started with Akamatsu's work as written from the very get go.
Sorry to say that even LOVE HINA did a better job than Negima (and many would agree Love Hina was off base as well)
