Posts Tagged ‘Hayate the Combat Butler! Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’

00

The Hayate no Gotoku! (or Hayate the Combat Butler, if you’d prefer) anime franchise has a bit of an odd history. It started out as a 52 episode series by SynergySP, got a 25 episode sequel of sorts from JC Staff that starts from episode 19 of the first series (allegedly following the manga more closely), and once that ended it got handed off onto Manglobe, who made a (quite poorly received) film titled Hayate no Gotoku! Heaven Is a Place on Earth. The move to Manglobe was not much-liked, as the art style changed dramatically and it was just a bit crap. Apparently. I’ve personally only seen up until around episode 21 of the first series, and it’s been stuck on my ‘on-hold’ list ever since.

As you might understand, the announcement for Hayate no Gotoku! Can’t Take My Eyes Off You didn’t do much for me initially, as it was a sequel and all that. However, when it was stated to be an original story that doesn’t tie directly to the previous instalments, I perked up. I really enjoyed what I had seen of the first series, with its diverse and entertaining cast and fast-paced, often referential humour. As this new series didn’t require much, if any, knowledge of the previous series, it couldn’t hurt to try it out and jump back into the franchise, right?

Maybe it’s because it’s nearing the end of the season, maybe it’s because I have lots of course work to do, or maybe it’s because each week I don’t really have anything useful or interesting to say, but these posts are beginning to get pretty tedious to write. I’ll see it through until the end of the season, but who knows what after then, really.

Loveliness and hugs abound this week

So I got my Anime Secret Santa recommendations. Kure-Nai, Natsume Yuujinchou and Paradise Kiss. Not a bad selection imo, been meaning to check the latter two out for a while so it works for me. And they’re all single-cours! Meaning I’ll probably be able to watch all 3 before Christmas.

Kick-Heart reached its funding goal! This is a great thing, and I can’t wait to see the finished product.

In other news, my Yukiko figma arrived, but got hit by customs so I had to pay like another £12 to free her from the evil clutches of the Royal Mail. Grr. Either way, she’s a lovely figure with a great sculpt and better articulation than the Chie figma I already own, although she does her long + hard plastic hair limits the potential movement of her arms a fair bit. But the main problem? Her ‘smiling’ face looks more like she’s being super srs. Ah well.

We should all strive to be this rad in our day to day lives
