Hayate no Gotoku!! 08 (Part 1)

Thus, butler in debt anime Hayate no Gotoku!! 2nd Season’s 8th episode ha recently been aired, so its that time of the week again, whoop’d dee doo~! This episode is based off Chapters 8 and 9 in Volume 8 of the manga (Exactly what I predicted >3) and there really isn’t much skipped or overlooked since they’re just covering two chapters, chapter 8 for the first half, and chapter 9 in the second half of the episode. Now its becoming more like a cheesy American episodic VT show… Which is why I am splitting this episodes cover in half! Thats right, half! In this post I’m covering the first half of the episode which is based off Chapter 8 in Volume 8 of the manga and I’m going to be covering the second half later on which is based off Chapter 9. (Disclaimer: I’m going to add the traditional Japanese honorifics from this weeks episode and beyond, since I felt that the past few weeks just saying their given name felt a bit awkward…) Without further ado, lets start!

This weeks episode starts off directly from Hina-san’s house where we left off last week. Unbeknown-st when Nishizawa-san went back home, Hina-san felt deeply saddened when she had to say goodbye to Shiranui since she can’t raise it in her home since her mother has a apparent cat allergy.

Awww 3
HNNNNNNNNNNNNG.
Say goodbye to Shiranui and use the this time efficiently since this is the only screent ime you have for this whole episode =(
Say goodbye to Shiranui and use the this time efficiently since this is the only screentime you have for this whole episode =(

During this time Hayate-kun asks Hina-san that what he can do to repay her for letting him stay at her house for the past 2 days, Hina-san says to forget it, but right at that moment…

March 3rd. Remember that.

Hina-san startles when her mother just popped out of nowhere (License to appear unexpectedly?) and says that her birthday was going to be on the 3rd of March. Hina-san tells her to back into the house since she’s currently in a mess because of her cat allergy. Hayate-kun then confirms that Hina-san’s birthday was on the 3rd of March, Hina-san’s mother agrees and says that if he “wants to express his gratitude, this is his chance!” (I wonder what she means by that…).

Hina-san then stubbornly asks what does she mean by that. Right after, Hayate-kun then declares that he’ll think of a nice present to give to her. Hina-san gives in, and says that she has no other choice but to look forward to it.

Thus, Hayate-kun says his goodbyes and leaves for the Sanzenin Mansion! and that’s the last time we’ll be seeing Hina-chan in this episode =(

When Hayate-kun arrives at the mansion and rings the doorbell, Nagi-ojou sama without a doubt knows that its Hayate at the door and rushes down to the door to open, only to find a black stray kitten, and what better to do…

This mass destruction happens before in her left eye.
LHC explosion?
About time she realised.

Nagi-ojou sama has officially realises that its a kitten, a kitten!

Yes. A kitten.

Claiming that she won’t allow it, and kittens are bad. But after giving it a second thought…

-staaaaaaaaare-
Staaaaaaaaare......

Nagi-ojou sama then gives in to Shiranui’s awesomeness and says “Of course I’ll allow it”, Hayate-kun is then confused, whether Nagi-ojou sama allows it or doesn’t. Of course, she allows it.

Then we go a few moments into the future where Nagi-ojou sama is playing with Shiranui. Then declaring that she’ll raise the kitten properly as a Sanzenin cat.

/facepalm Oh dear...
Oh dear.

Hayate-kun then asks that if she’s really going to, Nagi-ojou sama then says yes, also saying that she’ll take full responsibility of “Shiranui”! (First time the name is mentioned in the anime, I just thought I’d give it away at the start :>)

Achievement Unlocked: Named the little kitten.
Shiranui wut?
Shiranui, also known as White Wild Dignity...
Fitting name, don't you agree?

Hayate-kun then becomes quiet awkward, saying that didn’t she realised that its a black cat while the Kanji stating the word white. Nagi-ojou sama says need to not worry, as there is a white patch on the top of his head, that way it still counts. But then Hayate-kun asks that what would Maria say, Nagi-ojou sama says again need not to worry because…

Becare of what you say...

...because the witch youre talking about is riight behiind you~

Maria-san says that she won’t mind, but tells Nagi-ojou sama that she already has a kitten, a BIG kitten, and I think you all know who that is…

O RLY?

Tama (Not human, so no honorifics) then blabs on and on about what Nagi-ojou sama means to her, and that he’s been with her for a long time, he would always play with her, he sleeps with her when she gets scared and many more irrelevant matters. Nagi-ojou sama then calls for Tama, Tama obediently goes. Only to find out…

Poor Tama...

Tama is now in a state of depression, but then…

Tama is looking at Salt... Pepper... and other expensive and rare ingriedients...width=

After that statement from Hayate-kun, Tama throws a bottle of Pancake mix at Hayate, claiming…

lulz...
Uh..... huh.

and blabs some stuff like no man or anime is going to split their two bonds or something…

We then go through a time skip a few hours later into the night, where Nagi-ojou sama if feeding milk to Shiranui, Hayate-kun is impressed that Nagi-ojou sama is good at raising kittens, Nagi-ojou sama then goes on and says that she is used to this stuff after raising and spending a lot of time with Tama for many years, and goes deeply one with such remarks as giving him milk, feeding him, cleaning out his litter tray, playing with him, and goes on blabbing out nonsense which I don’t even understand…

...eh?
...eh?
Ummm...
Ummm...
Err.........
Err.........

and so on…

and so we look into our first but not really obvious cut from the manga, at this point, after pointing out the obvious this an owner needs to do raising their pets, she goes on and mentions thing s that are copyright infringing, such as showing him the entire series of Gun*am, E*vangeli*n, Nades*co, U*na Cy*er Formula, Mamay*n, ajnd Eldr*n series, and had him play F*nal F*ant*sy, Dr*gon Q**st, Virt*a F*ght*r, T*hou, the K*t*tsuki and Hig*r*shi games, and made him cut a D*shi Fanzine and so forth. (I think you all know what the censored names are..) Actually this would be the first time where they would make references to pop culture in the 2nd season, but since they’re acting all loyal to the manga they don’t have enough time to play cynical gags…

So going back to the anime, Hayate-kun realises why and how Tama became what he is today… Hayate-kun then asks Nagi-ojou sama that Tama might be jealous of Shiranui, like an older brother or Sister is jealous of their younger or newborn sibling and baby.

Nagi then decides that she’s going to play with Tama for a while later, she then gives Hayate-kun Shiranui to continue feeding him milk (again, from the bottle…), Hayate-kun asks why, and Nagi subjects that she’s going to take a bath, which triggers the memory of Nagi seen by Hayate naked, the whole meaning as to why Hayate had to leave the mansion for a few days…

She looks at the opposite way then in the manga...
She looks at the opposite way then in the manga...

She then stubbornly walks off to take a bath… Hayate-kun then continues feeding milk to Shiranui. But suddenly, Tama attacks in reality form! Hayate then asks why he’s doing this, Tama then replies that doing trivial things won’t make him go away, which then he though of a sinister scheme to make Nagi-ojou sama hate him and throws him out, and you all know what that means (If you’ve read it in the manga), its Nagi-ojou sama’s notebook with her manga drawings!

This is new :D
This is new :D

Tama  reveals his plan is that he’s going to rip up Nagi-ojou sama’s notebook to shreds and stamp on tiny paws with ink to make them look like Shiranui’s, thus, placing the blame it all on him.

Cunning =3
Cunning =3

Hayate-kun then declares that he is not going to let Tama get away with this, but unfortunately…

-shredshredshredshredshredshredshred-
-shredshredshredshredshredshredshred-
OMGZZZ! LOW QUALITY SCREEN CAP!!!
OMGZZZ! LOW QUALITY SCREEN CAP!!!

Shiranui does so anyways for Tama! Putting Hayate-kun and Tama in a mental state…

Hayate-kun immediately removes Shiranui from the severed Notebook, while Tama runs up to it and tries to put it all back together, but because of the anime and manga’s bad timing gag, Nagi-ojou sama walks in after taking a nice long bath, only to find her precious Manga work all in shreds, and Tama at the scene of the crime, what better reaction than this…

I have to put this back to its original state! Even if it is clearly impossible to!
I have to put this back to its original state! Even if it is clearly impossible to!
OH NOEZ!
OH NOEZ!
Ive seen this face before... dont tell me thats...
I've seen this face before... don't tell me thats...

and straight before you knew it, Tama is locked up ina cage in a random dark room somewhere located in the mansion!

Shouldnt you also say THIS IS ANIMAL ABUSE AND THE PRODUCERS ARENT DOING A THING ABOUT IT!!!
Shouldn't you also say "THIS IS ANIMAL ABUSE AND THE PRODUCERS AREN'T DOING A THING ABOUT IT!!!"
Lolz Hayate...
Lolz Hayate...

and as Nagi-ojou sama walks to the door, and Tama begging for mercy, Tama sets his eyes on Shiranui, on to witness…

He sounds like Ichigo from Bleach...
He sounds like hollow Ichigo from Bleach...
Awesome expression xD
Awesome expression xD

and as Tama cries into the starry night,we finally reach the end of the first half.

To Be Continued in Part 2.

That is all folks for the first half for Episode 8! Quiet lengthy for half a episode here and with 36 screen caps… and there wasn’t really much left out in this half except for the reference bit which was a bit more weird than in the manga… So see you all again in Part 2 which is most likely to be out on Monday! Sorry for the awkward delay since I’m busy with stuff lately and tomorrow (Sunday) I’ll be attending the London MCM Expo as I said in one of my previous post. (Another lengthy blog post coming up?)

So until next time~
