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.
