This is... rather interesting.

I wanna know if there's CD release for ED song!! I watched it because my beloved Miyu-Miyu is the main character!

I watched this because Nakai Kazuya was in it. Waited for his character til the end of the first part and it turns out he's just a salesman voice? Really?

The captions are as awful as everyone else has said. The animation is nice though and I feel sorry for the main character but I don't know if I'll watch the rest. Too disappointed already.

Is there a MAL listing for this?

"Take guitar lessons to prevent high-school netorare" is what I learned from this OVA.

I am curious on what project manglobe is going to do next though.

That makes me wonder, does JC Staff or Manglobe have the rights to the TV series? I kinda figured they just sourced out the movie to Manglobe since JC Staff was too busy with other stuff.

Is this where all the Hayate and TWGOK money from BD and music sales is going manglobe!?

It might have been if either of those made a profit.


AFAIK at least in case of Hayate they didn't loose - like 7000 of sold DVD and BD
plus those DVD sold with manga - and that would be like 65 000
I cannot find how much they've earned in cinemas :/

but TWGOK was a failure - not as series but that they decided on second season (was it they listened to fans... deadly mistake)

made a profit? Lol, those two made more than just profit, Hayate alone got 2 seasons with 70+ episodes not to mention the OVA's, TWOGK got 2 seasons and the 3 will most likely air in this summer or winter 2013.

Why you so mad?

A third season of TWGOK is never going to happen. The anime was a failure.

Didn't the TWGOK animation team disband recently or something? I feel like if that's the case there won't be a 3rd season at all, as unfortunate as that is.

Alright, but since it's on Youtube it'll have to wait until I watch at least 10 videos of cats doing wacky things.

Every visit, every time.
