Synopsis

Hayate Ayasaki's misfortune continues to hand him the short end of the stick. Now settled into his routine at the Sanzenins' mansion and Hakuou Academy, the butler continues to work as hard as ever in caring for his young mistress Nagi while studying the school's grueling curriculum—all on top of trying his best to survive the multitude of troubles that life relentlessly pushes onto him.

The unintentional chick magnet's life is far from quiet, forced to deal not only with Nagi's yet unnoticed infatuation with him, but also the evergrowing string of accidentally seduced girls—most notably, the exceptionally plain Ayumu Nishizawa, a friend of his before he became a butler, and the diligent Hinagiku Katsura, Hakuou's student council president. While one struggles to gain his affection and the other desperately tries to deny her own, both the girls are going to make the boy's life a little more complicated than it already is.

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.

Story:
+ 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

Hayate no Gotoku!! is a unique parody and slice of life series that mainly focuses on the relationships between characters. It features some of the funniest and most ridiculous characters that one could find, which is the primary reason it is so entertaining.

I for one am very proud of J.C. Staff for sticking to the source material. While at times an episode could seem rigid and have poor flow from the first half to the next, seeing chapters from the manga coming to be animated brings a feeling of joy.

The art however leaves something to be desired. The change of color and designs read more

Normally I wouldn't write a review for an unfinished series but I glanced at the other review and facepalmed through my skull. This review assumes that you watched the first series and is primarily a comparison. I might update it once the series is finished; however given the nature of the show I doubt my opinion will change much and thus I will likely not be updating this review. (as of Episode 6)

STORY:
The story remains basically non-existent, irrelevant and centered if anything around character development. Generally events resolve themselves within a two episode span and aren't mentioned again beyond perhaps a fleeting reference; the show read more
