Not a bad start - a coherent plot was never Hayate's strong point, but looks like this series may actually have a solid plot to it alongside the comedy, which is a plus in my book. I can't say I'm crazy about the slightly different character designs compared to the first or second season, but they grew on me and by the end of the episode I almost didn't notice. Not as jaw-droppingly different from what came before it as Futakoi Alternative was to Futakoi, but although I had low expectations I enjoyed it so far. It seems more like an original story more or less bolted onto the existing Hayate universe rather than a complete from-the-very-beginning alternate retelling, and that's not a bad thing.

Somehow I can't look at Ruri without thinking of Konata from Lucky Star or Tsumiki from Acchi Kocchi though, seems like the long blue hair with an ahoge thing is a popular character design these days...
