I'm fine going this way for just one episode, but there's a very interesting little sister/aliens/time travel(?) plot going on, and I want to see where that one is leading. Though that plotline did briefly intersect with this episode, it mostly reminded me of season two, my thoughts on which have already been established. There was still some decent comedy in there, with the three fools of the student council setting the plot in motion, and the closing gag (with the brief cutaway to Nagi and the parallel with the start of the episode) was pulled off fairly well, but there simply wasn't as much comedy as the previous weeks. Like I said, I'm fine with this for a brief detour, but there's a lot more angles to explore and a throughline to continue lining through.

Not a bad episode by any means, just not one that's going to stand out for me in the long run.

me being a SUPER HINA FAN i can only say....best episode of all hayate series, no joke even in the manga it was not as perfect as this one and the manga has some fricikng serious business with hayate x hinagiku , this episode was made for hina, since the preview for episode 3 i knew it was going to be her and that totally did not disapoint...more like well for me at least its the only episode i actually like from can't take my eyes off you so far

The series is very slowly improving from the first episode, I just hope they can keep it up. At the very least, Hayate didn't beg me to like the episode this time.

As for the episode itself, I told everyone anime children are little devil spawns. WHAT DID I TELL YOU.

So yeah, I'm as happy about seeing Hina as the next person, but what does this episode have to do with this season's direction as a whole again?

Hiiiiina!~ My pinked haired princess as finally arrived!

Anyway, I agree with some about the whole new character designs. Hina just doesn't look like Hina..maybe b/c I'm still used to JC Staffs designs.

Nice to know things don't change, Hina, still can't be honest with yourself :P

Well, this has been the best episode this season so far, and many people will understand why. I hated the animation and artwork they had for the first half of the episode, but it really did improve towards the second half.

I don't mind the change in direction for this episode, as the previous story arc so far has been a bit dull. It really does show, considering the fan ratings for this series thus far has been quite average to poor, relative to how quite well received the second Hayate series had.

Well, it was a nice break, and great episode. I'm just not sure if we'll get another good one like this for the rest of the series.

Ah, the unfortunate necessity of pandering. Too bad the expected final deflation isn't worth it (unlike the coffee tasting chapter -- that deflation works really well).

I have a bad feeling about it... You don't suppose they just put it in for the sake of it ?

This was suppose to be an original story Anime right? But this episode is an adaptation of the manga chapter...

Oh good, I thought it was just me. Yeah I didn't really mind it in the first two episodes but when it's a Hinagiku episode suddenly it became way too obvious and was pretty much affecting my ability to enjoy the episode.

In addition, Manglobe's comedy timing is all over the place... Borderline non-existent -_-

The second half at the amusement park was much better though But a tokimeki memory for me it was not.

It still looks atrocious... otherwise nice episode, and completely unrelated with the previous two.

I think any perceptive person would agree that she was in it for that reason. However, it's not a cause of concern since they've been doing this since the manga. Hina's popular, and they played on it (second season, just for the blatantly obvious), and that's alright. I rather like Hina.

Your second statement is something I can 100% agree with though. This series just can't develop its own identity. It throws in Ruri and bits of the surreal/poetic scenes, but then it establishes that Hina is totally into Hayate- something that wasn't set in stone until Season 2 of the anime. So is this a continuation, or isn't it? Because if it is, I'm afraid my opinion of it would be much lower.

According to Hata's twitter, it IS part of the series' original plot and the manga will eventually catch up with it.

But this is confusing...

It's base after the current manga arc and is considered canon.

I'm guessing they're just shifting around the events. It's no big deal really, I just thought that this entire season would be a brand new story like what Hata said... oh well.

Well that was a tedious waste of time. It was an uninspired adaption of the Hina Date story, minus all the good jokes. (Barring the punchline, which was at least reasonably well done.) Unavoidable, I suppose.

Hehehe. Yeah, that was one of the better Hina punchlines.

Unless we get more manga adapted material, I'm just going to assume this was a one-off to placate Hina fans.

Hina is hereeee..... I'm used to be a huge Hinagiku's fan so I like this episode...
although the animation quality is little bad in my eyes...

good job in putting dating scene in longer time than those prologue scene... don't really enjoy that Segawa and friends' scene at all (since they're little annoying... lol)

for Hina : it's not like you're the one who get cursed.... it's Hayate... his bad luck is striking you... xD

nice troll when Hayate asking for money and Hinagiku's words are interrupted because of train

Spoiler for you'll be tired but I'll say this again:

... Are they really that desperate for Luka's new album? I love Luka and all (probably near Hina-level), but she serves no purpose and completely messes up the flow of the story. And it was the Hina date episode!!

Well, at least I got to hear Hina and it still had the important parts of the date intact (albeit with bad flow), so it was watchable.
