Even if "Alice" is just a part of Athena, she's still her, and I would've enjoyed seeing her character in a comedic context anyway. And... I enjoyed this episode. Athena was the one who got the plot moving, but Sakuya (who sang the ED) and Fumi (and Yukiji!) played just as major a role. I was only introduced to Fumi in recent series, but I like her. Kana Asumi brings her usual energy to the role, and anyone who tries to seriously interrogate a dog is going to get a few laughs out of me. I wasn't expecting the return of Tama either. He was one of the elements from the first series that gave it that distinctly anime feel, that I liked, and was slowly phased out in the second season, but here, had another moment to shine. The return of Regioster was a surprise, too. The show's got an expansive cast, but that doesn't mean everybody's forgotten, even if their prominence is less. The story with Armageddon (really, that's a hell of a name for a dog) was cute, and the second, shorter sketch with Nagi and Athena made for some good interplay. While they do have some character overlap, Athena seems to be a more traditional rich girl/socialite, while Nagi's a more modern (otaku) girl.

Next week looks to be Sakuya and Isumi's actual episode. I love those two, so I'm looking forward to it. They have some of the best comedic chemistry.

A-tan HHHHNNNNGGGG! I wish I was the dog giving her the glomps. :D

A-tan was really cute
Tama talking with Armageddon was really funny

it's hereeee!!! A-tan special episode!!!

they managed to clump three A-tan chapters into one episode....
including my favorite chapters of course (interaction between the previous and the current... xD)

now I'm satisfied with A-tan loli version.... waiting for adult one (I see a glimpse of her in the ending song)

dying for A-tan's arc adaptation..... I miss her too much

Thats about sums it up for me.

Arma talking smack to Tama was absolutely hilarious :D

A-tan is a shadow of her former self, in every sense of the phrase.... >_>

Regarding Nagi and A-tan's character overlap: in fact, Nagi and A-tan were at one point a single character in Hata's original plans for the Hayate serialization. I don't remember well how it was described, but Hata/his editors decided to pursue a more comedic focus so it was at that point that Nagi was split off with a different backstory. The reintroduction of Athena into the story at all was bringing in some of the original plot settings and backstory (particularly for Hayate) Hata had for the series.

Ironically it's those elements that turned out to be loved by the fans almost universally.

So far it's the best episode that I've seen :). Too bad it's just one episode, Alice was just adorable.

Word of caution:

Be careful how you carry a briefcase full of money, since on your way to the bank it's more likely that a big dog will steal it, and give it to a cute and adorable, lolita girl whose hair tails happen to be the same shape as a chocolate coronet.

Also take note that amongst loli girls, whether be a selfish, hikkikomori and just a plain cute, little lady without memory, if they cooperate for a common objective, that would be to reach the restaurant where a debt-ridden butler works at, in order to eat his cooking.
