I'm not sure about whether they'd do well in a relationship, but they certainly have great chemistry as friends. I'm starting to miss Nagi. The extra Hinagiku coverage is nice and everything - I've come to understand and appreciate her much more than I ever did during the first season - but Nagi's easily my favorite female. I've always wondered why so many people don't like her. I guess it's because she's the main heroine, which in any sort of fandom is like a big target sign saying "Hate me." Main characters are the worst, they're nothing compared to those totally awesome secondary characters who I probably wouldn't like as much if they got more screentime and stopped being underground. Also, 'Hayate is saying a really lame thing with a really cool look!' might be my favorite quote of the episode.
There are quite a few other reasons why one could dislike Nagi.
For example, her being voiced by Kugimiya Rie and her loli tsundere nature is kind of like a "hate it or love it" scenario. Some people are sick of these kind of characters (Shana, Taiga , Louise) and therefor dislike any other character with the same personality.
Another reason may be that some think there was way too much focus on Nagi in the first season with a result that they got bored of/annoyed by her.

The funny thing is: I'm almost convinced that Nagi was more or less designed to be the average anime otaku's wet dream.

o Loli

o Devoted to the lead character

o Filthy rich

o Interest in all things otaku

Had her age (and thus her eligibility for romantic interest) been pushed up just a little bit more, I'd have been convinced that this was the mangaka's intention off the bat.

Then again, you never know how things develop. For example, Hata never expected (and intended) Hina to become the huge fan favorite - he said it came as a total surprise for him.

So letsee where the story goes.

Well, to be fair, while Hayate is an extremely hard worker, he never really had to do extensively challenging school work like Hakuou would assign (or so I assume). And they did mention that some of the tests weren't even in Japanese (the Math test was in German/3 other languages or something), which unless Hayate worked as a translator while hiding his age, would be pretty hard to learn. I think most of his talents fall into the category of physical labor and communication skills, not schoolwork or that kind of stuff.

- I'm with Chibi, qwerty, and Ash. Izumi's great. Riza was my favorite of the trio at first thanks to that joke about her being that Japanese singer, but Izumi overtook her soon after. I was completely indifferent to Miki for the longest time, but she's starting to grow on me very slightly. She's certainly ahead of a few characters, like those two butlers that appear so rarely they don't even feel like part of the series sometimes.
Yes, another is being converted to the Izumi side!

By that measure, ALMOST every girl in HnG would be too intelligent for Hayate. I assume the only love rival that could academically match Hayate would be Ayumu. Which is why they should totally be together.

Nice Segawa-san, you managed to made me smile at this not-so-funny episode It's to be expected, the way the story was told in this episode was not made for laugh anyway.

Meh she needs better fashion sense then maybe...Honestly she always dresses so boring I think it barely registers with me subconsciously shes even female...

Need Sakuya to teach her how to dress I think like she did with Isumi...Ohhh remember that outfit Sakuya had on the cruise ship last season? *drool*

Wait what was I talking about again...

Nagi is just a spoiled BRAT! Hayate is confused beyond! He should just go with Ayumu. SHE WAS FIRST! Other than the A-tan girl thing!

Come to think of it, the profile said that Sakuya had a great sense of fashion right ?
