Can anyone tell me what anime the butler battle for this episode was from? I'd really appreciate it.

Oh my God! This week's butler battle is something out of my childhood! I don't remember the series that well, but after a bit of searching it seems to be called "Let's & Go". It's a shounen like series about model 4 wheel drive race cars that run on tracks. They run with only a motor and turning is completely based off bumpers on the corners of the frame with wheels. It's a manga/show like Beyblade (I think), but a million times better. If I remember correctly, it's racing with model cars that are modified and enhanced with technology to an epic level. Instead of in Beyblade where ridiculous spinning tops somehow follow the orders of people yelling at them, it's racing in the crazy courses where pre-modifying and how well built a model is wins. The crazy race courses for example, would be like an underground cavern where stalactite fall down and damage/crush cars if they weren't fast enough or something. That course was a duel race between the main character brothers racing against a shadowy underground racing team bent on... was it world domination or racing champion trophy? Can't remember. Anyway, the characters would always run beside their cars like this episode and exchange banter while the cars would perform incredible stunts (and yes, like Beyblade, follow orders somehow, but not to such an extreme...).

Hell, I even bought the model cars of the two main characters when I was a kid, and built them up myself from the part kits that were sold in stores. One of the brothers had a car that would be upgraded and called "(something) Magnum" and Hayate's car was a reference to it too!

That was nostalgic... I have some of the manga for it I think. This stuff if old school, maybe a decade or more I think. It's awesome, I haven't thought about the cars for a long time... I should build up a track and race the two cars again sometime. Dang... that was a ramble and a half.

Sakuya has won overwhelming preference votes from my part.

The 31st episode disclosed very much her maturity, particularly how to properly raise kids correctly by letting to play outdoors or reading them interesting tales, unlike Nagi who just wanted to fed them up with manga and doujinshi that was way too advanced for the kid's level.

And Nagi making another of her toxic stews again!!? May god have pity for their souls.

Hayate even if you were impersonating as Nagi's imouto-san take into account that she still thought of you as a boy on the inside, so you were careless to accidentally touch her on that spot.

Anime references:
1. Yep, Itsuki and Shunji are parody play on Ikki and Shun from Saint Seiya. Very obvious at first glance.

2. The face that everyone overlooked. When Nagi turned to Saku she did the Shinnosuke "Shin-chan" Nohara face.

3. This week's buttler battle parodied "Let's & Go".

Someone earlier posted what else is on the next buttler battle. My answer is that they'll likely would be parodying Beyblade.

I think we should be grateful that he wasn't playing the baby and Nagi the mum. Dinner time could have been censored followed by an epic beating

Well for those of you who wonder, the butler battle in this episode is in reference to Dash Yankuro. I remember watching it on TV while I was still in elementary school. And I used to own a few 4wd mini racing cars made by TAMIYA. Man, those were the days.

I have a newfound respect and love for Sakuya. It propelled her right up there with Isumi...

Oh dear god Nagi raising children *shivers in a corner* i mean look at what she tried to make Tama do. Can you imagin what would happen given enough time alone with kids Nagi they would be broken beyond repair. Funny episode and from the looks of it we will see a very familiar butler next week i wonder who it could it be

Nagi's out of question, but would you consider hiring Sakuya as a baby sitter?

I mean, she's caring, clever, knows children, and is sort of responsible, part of the time. (Her interactions with Gilbert are less than responsible, but let's ignore them for now...)

But she still has that whacky side everyone is HnG has, and she might force the kids to become comedians...

I guess it depends on how you look at it some of the most successful stars are some of the weirdest. But i do agree with you Sakuya as a babysitter would be a great option.

Nagi is definitely not fit to raise children, this is even more indication that Hayate shouldn't end up with Nagi..

Overall this show felt average, although i did enjoy some of the comedic moments i felt there was no progress in any of the plot, also the lack of Hinagiku made me angry so meh.

Oh, come on. Her lack of fitness at raising children when she's thirteen means jack about what kind of wife she'll make at twenty.

I wonder how Maria would've reacted if Hayate had been dressed forced into the baby outfit.

You know Nagi was born into a life of luxury, those types aren't usually good at household chores and the likes, especially raising children.

There is a big difference in attitude to those who made their own wealth and those who were born into wealth. Nagi's general attitude and spontaneity indicate that when or if she has children, they'll either be looked after by Maria or the army of SP's...

Now compare that to Sakuya whose around the same age (maybe a bit older), she shows an aptitude at raising kids. Using those two as comparisons Nagi obviously is incapable of raising kids.

Sakuya's about as rich as Nagi, by the way...

And, as I said, what she is at thirteen is a poor indicator of what she'll be as an adult. How many people, in our modern world, are any good at raising kids, when they're thirteen?

Even Sakuya. Sure, she can play with them a few hours, but raise them? Probably not, and it's normal. Jeez, what kind of guy expects a thirteen years old girl to be ready to be a wife and mother?

And raising kids isn't all there is to being a wife anyway. She already has breadwinner qualities (I don't remember if it was mentioned in the anime, but she can make loads of money trading stocks).

Yes they do mention her proficiency in stocks, however while I don't totally disagree with you about 13 being a much different mind set from 20+, Nagi doesn't seem to have an older figure that she is willing *keyword 'willing' to learn how to be a respectable adult female and take responsibilities such as parenting.
That is why she is her current temperament and not as 'mature' as other characters like Sakuya or Isumi. Can she change and mature? Ofcourse, is she 'willing'? Hell if I know.

In the mean time i'll enjoy more Tama goodness in my HnG


Two other things on Sakuya....

1. I don't think she is as rich as Nagi, not Video store poor, but second tier rich.
2. some decent Zettai Ryouiki from her in this episode...... >_<

I would have given this episode an 8, but the ending made up for it when the kids put on the golden armor.

Sakuya's family isn't as rich as Nagi's, but calling her fortune second tier is probably an understatement. She owns her own private jet (and some more really expensive things if you read the manga)

well if they decided to make nagi good with children, all that luxury etc does not apply. basically what we have here is a coat of development that only goes so far.
