Hayate no Gotoku !! Episode 1

August 3, 2009

I’ve had my eye on Hayate no Gotoku! for a while now and I’ve finally decided to check out the first episode of the second season ala Crunchyroll. Three and a half minutes into the episode and female lead finally opened her mouth; this show is definitely gonna be afflicted (in my mind, at least) with a severe case of “Hey, It’s That Voice” as Nagi is voiced by none other than Rie Kugimiya, or Shana of Shakugan no Shana. Hmm and both are associated with maids with Western names (Shana’s mother-like Wilhelmina and Nagi’s actual maid Maria).

<rant>Three tsunderes at the beach, sounds kinda scary, and it would sure be confusing with all them having the SAME VOICE. I haven’t seen Zero no Tsukaima but for some reason I’ve got a feeling I know exactly what Louise’s voice sounds like. But lets face it, Rie and her voice are about as typecasted tsundere as Ben Stein is typecasted boring.</rant>

Back to the show now! Well at least it sounded a bit less like Shana when she only said urusai once! … Moving on. Margery Daw’s seiyu, Hitomi Nabatame, plays the part of another drunkard, one of the teachers at this strange school.

All in all, I’m not even sure what just happened in this episode. 6.5/10. Maybe I just need to see more.
