action comedy parody


Picks up after episode 19 of Hayate no Gotoku! season 1. Season 2 is supposed to follow the manga more closely.

Hayate is still working as the Sanzenin Butler, and season 2 features a lot more Hinagiku, as scenarios that include herself and Hayate allude to potentially mutual feelings between them. Nagi is also interested in escalating her relationship with Hayate, since Nagi's perception of her relationship with Hayate remains based on the miscommunication that occurred on their first meeting.

Hayate no Gotoku! (or Hayate the Combat Butler if you prefer) is a manga created by Kenjiro Hata which is currently still ongoing. It has already received an anime adaptation by SynergySP which ran for an impressive full year with 52 episodes. A year later, and under a new animation studio, Hayate no Gotoku!! is the sequel to the popular parody-comedy, romance series.

+ As a parody-comedy there isnt really much of a plot, however this season is a near perfect adaptation from the original manga.
+ Completely ignores the filler material from season 1 and starts off from where last season derailred. (Ep 25 season 1)

Hayate no Gotoku - you've been a long road for me: 75 episodes is no easy task for a 12 to 24-episode convert. (76 including the 30 minute OVA.)

Down to brass tax: the story has, outright, abandoned the "Hayate owes 150 million yen" arch. True, it keeps him as the butler to Nagi, but, compared to the first season, it's not the driving factor - the relationships are now.

If you saw the prequel to the second season, the OVA, you would have been slightly shocked with, not only with the art style, but with the more relationship-oriented season that is to come. For read more

This is gonna be brief and I am afraid not very informative (since it is the only things come to my mind when writing review for this show).

The second season of Hayate no Gotoku is easily the best show from the franchise so far. While this sequel drops a few inklings of the manic energy in the original, it is animated with nothing but the utmost respect to the source material. If you have come looking for a fun, sardonic, witty meta-humour and filler-fanservice episodes like the first season you’re looking in the wrong place, as this sequel had changed, from your episodic comedy to read more

The second season to one of the most awesome anime you can ever watch, Hayate no Gotoku!!. Its pretty much continue from episode 25 of Hayate no Gotoku! and have a new studio name J.C. Staff animating it xD

Story:To keep it short, I kept it in point form
+No More Fillers!!!!!!!
+No more annoying side characters that may annoy the show xD
+Character development increased xD

-Fans of fillers might start revolting though.....
-Reference to anime/manga dropped, a lot!!!!!
-Too short!!!

+Since its J.C, the art improves, a lot!!!!!
+The background is also more colourful

-There are not much lacking in J.C arts except over-colour........

+The same old feeling of the first season xD

Over the top butlers and references galore. Both are similar in many aspects and enjpy parodying other animes/etc.
Both Toradora and Hayate no Gotoku (HnG) are similar because both of them are slice of life, romance, and also include school life. In my opinion, HnG is better than Toradora because it has more comedy and action. HnG is full of parodies, and sort of like a harem, and there's a lot of comedy. I recommend HnG for any age but it's not as romantic as Toradora (kisses on the cheek couple times, which is basically it).
this is very similar to shakugan no shana because nagi and shana are almost exactly alike. and hayate and yuji are almost alike. :D
both are harem and both have very strong male protagonist
both have strong male character
both main male character confuse other girls
both have same felling and humor
both have very rich girls and they try to lead a normal life
both the male character parents have left the child alone and gone somewhere
both the main male characters are understanding
about a tsundere girl who fall in love with a boy which is her servent,and there is a harem in this anime
