Just started, and yay new OP.

Plenty of good scenes all around in this episode, making it a win-win situation. Funniest moment by far as to be the scene where Maria appeared at random to take the cookies. I laughed so hard at this, and the fact that it was so random worked so well. I wasn't expect that at all.

My favorite scene has to be the last one, where Hayate gives Hina cookies. I was waiting for this to happen since the start of the episode, and it was just so adorable. Yet again i find myself caring more about Hayate x Hina then Hayate x Ayumu.

Oh, and Nagi wanted a drill was priceless.

Now i must give one huge HURRAY for a new ED, finally. Really like the new OP, because it's the kind of KOTOKO song that suits the show perfectly, just like the second OP of the first season. Some pretty nice visuals as well.

Makoto! If it isn't you, Makoto! When is Cross Days coming out?!

New... OP and ED, you say?!
*crowd cheering*
Uooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!

OP was... disappointing, compared to the first season's OP, but compared to this season's OP, is better.
For better or for worse, it moved a lot...

ED... Anything is better than the previous garbage that played at the end every episode, so yeah, it was a great improvement. Kugimiya's singing is as painful to the ear as ever though...

Great episode! 10/10. It's been a while since the comedy throughout the episode was actually funny, and the romantic moments between Hayate and Hinagiku/Ayumu were good too.
Still... Keh, as dense as ever to romance, Hayate is... The only thing that ruins it and gets old. Keh...

Jesus Christ, s_b. Feel the hate, hm?

Objectively, I'd definitely rate H.I.N.A. as one of the better songs of the Hayate anime. "Garbage"... my my my.

Content-wise, I'd say that this is one of THE defining Hina-episodes. No big new revelations, but it highlights exactly the way she is. Answering Miki's choco. Getting crowded by fans who also want cookies from her. Fulfilling her self-appointed obligation to promote Ayumu's romance with Hayate even to the extent that it's cutting her. Helping out Hayate, also against her personal interests. Scolding him in understandable anger, but still fully aware of her own feelings ("Jeez! I wonder why I'm in love with this guy..."), and helping him out again. Getting all flustered when the cafe master was teasing her on the boyfriend angle. And helping him out a THIRD time (this time with Maria) to ensure that he can fulfil his promise to Ayumu. And - which is fairly rare - eventually getting a reward for her efforts in some White Day cookies (complete with playing a little trick on Hayate to cover her embarrassment).

In summary, this chapter shows 75% of why I consider her so incredibly endearing. Particularly the scenes which show her fighting the bitter fight against her own feelings to fulfill her duty towards Ayumu.

A rare 9 from me.

Label me as another person who says it's garbage.

Those who think that song is garbage are obviously jealous of Hina. Or angered that the trio don't get much screen time beyond dragging Hina to the karaoke box.

I could almost see not liking it for the Hot Springs arc, just because it was such an emotional Nagi story, but other than that it's pure jealousy!

I love H.I.N.A. myself, I don't know why anyone would think it was "garbage" it was pretty catchy.

No not really, i just didn't like the song or the video. I also didn't like how they had an ED focused on just one character for 17 episodes.

& i love Hina.

Is it so wrong that i have that opinion?

Yes, yes it is.

Also, just checked out the new OP on crunchyroll. Amazing. Fanservice combined with scenes and characters from the manga that likely won't make it into the anime.

Yay new OP/ED! As far as the OP goes, it's a definitive step up from the previous one (which was just utter trash as far as I'm concerned), but the new OP's song doesn't feel like it goes along with what's going on in the animation at all (especially during the gratuitous fanservice shots -_-). Anyone else get that vibe? Last season's KOTOKO openings were much better. Although it gets awesome points for Izumi + Kotetsu, as well as maid Chiharu.

As for the ED, I was honestly surprised by it. I was expecting it to suck 'cause, well, I don't like Kugimiya's voice in general, but it wasn't that bad. It was pretty good, even, possibly because I like Shiraishi's singing voice, which counter-balanced Kugimya's.

As for the episode; good stuff. This time they delivered the jokes a lot better than in the manga, and they did the Hina bits a good service. So 10/10 for that.

And was that Risa's grandpa (or I think he's her grandpa, anyway) that showed up 3/4 of the way through when Ayumu was talking to herself about her clothes? Pretty sure it was, I'm just too lazy to check.

Looked like it was just the filler stuff to me; no "arc" in particular, really. My guess is the next arc will be the Sakuya's birthday bit, which is where the season will probably end.

Okay, checked the raw... don't like this new ED. Not even just compared to HINA, but overall it's bleh.

As for the preview, seems to cover chapter 130 and 131. Chapter 130 isn't really important overall I believe. Chapter 131 is the prelude to Sakuya's birthday.

I was really glad to see a new ED. I didn't dislike the Hine one, but it was far too overplayed. I don't think Kugimiya's singing is painfull, and it was really cute, with all the crab walks and such.

New OP is great, feels like the seres it's getting it's second wind. I'm really hoping for 52 eps now. As for the new ED, as much as I love H-I-N-A I think it's about time for a change, and the duet between Ryoko & Rie is very very cute

Before I head off to sleep (and consequently forget about it), this is easily the best part of the new OP.

I'm a bit disappointed with both the new OP and ED , Wonder Wind and H.I.N.A were much better. I feel that the new OP has an excess of Fan Service in it, but hey I'm NOT complaining Definitely a 9 for the episode, in my opinion.
