I feel strange about this, considering all the praise, but I was disappointed by that first episode. The humor didn't reach me, and even the voice acting -- much as I love the three main seiyuu -- didn't appeal to me. I thought maybe sound director Watanabe Jun got them to do the wrong voices, at least for me (clearly not for other people, though).

But the show does have at least two great hooks: the chara-des of the sweet young rich girl, and the idea of the invincible, somewhat "unlucky" but really capable, young butler.

Lol, I'm not suprised.

This show seems targetted at a younger audience than the stuff you usually seem to like.
After the first episode, it will get even more simpleminded in the plot department. (based upon what I have read so far, I don't expect any serious sad/bittersweet/ or really deep moments of any kind, instead just slapstick comedy etc)

That said, it should be easy to watch, and I look forward to it.

The seiyuu were perfect, as was the narrator. The animation was also noticeably better than what I'd seen in the PVs.
What, no one else has love for Optimus Prime and the RX-78-2? What about the Pinkachu or God Magnus?

/me looks around cautiously

Good, no one I know so far

Very fun episode, nice to see the manga in animated form, and......being the big Mahoraba fan that I am, I usually reserved Ryoko Shiraishi to relate to Mahoraba only, but.....nice to see an almost identical Ryuushi Shiratori again

Something tells me the DVD releases will be un-"signed"

And no, I didn't watch this because of Nagi! I'm not a lolicon! And no calling me lolitron! I....I'm watching this series because of Maria! Yeah that's right! I'm a Maria-con

/me hides....

Here are my full thoughts for Hayate no Gotoku episode 1

I actually enjoyed this episode a lot (unlike my dissapointment with Seto no Hanayome), I came in with low expectations for this series and so maybe that is why I quite enjoyed it. I might check out the manga for this series now, there are about 10 volumes out I think(?)

shouldn't this be moved out of unaired by now?

anyways, it looks interesting enough, definently doesn't look that serious, which isn't a bad thing. Though since I have a limited understanding of japanese, I didn't really know what was going on, but i'll check out the first few episodes.

Don't you people read? It's the second time I must say this today already.

Unaired Forum: Forum for discussing anime that haven't aired yet or haven't been fansubbed yet.

I liked that part in the manga too, I'm not sure why they cut it...it's perfectly in character for his parents.
Spoiler for manga, also pretty minor:


Now it's time to sit back and hope it'll be fansubbed...although since it's staying pretty close to the manga, I might try to watch it raw until it gets beyond volume 2.

Yeah thats another one, though it was someway handled. Well, cuting some things is inevitable and I think the first episode delivers anyways.
BTW, I hope with all my heart that they manage to keep all the Gundam references.

This is worth watching for Wakamoto's voice alone.

Yes it is--although in my head I end up picturing Onsokumaru doing the narration. I think I'll always associate his voice with that character now...

Norio Wakamoto and This guy are probably my favourite narrator voices of all time. This is one of those rare cases where I can say the casting is perfect and I have no problems at all with any aspect of the shows presentation. Looking forward to the sub very much.

Wow, if Kaioshin-sama has such a favorable impression of it, I MUST check this one out! ^_^

Nah, actually I've been looking forward to this one a lot. I've heard many good things about the manga.

As always, Eclipse released CPU-killing HD nonsense.
I was wondering before, how could they encode 1024x264 Pumpkin so it would die on me, yet Yoroshiku's Kekkaishi in 1024x264 was perfectly playable ? Now they just decided to only release for the rich kids.
