Hayate no Gotoku episodes are too hit or miss for me to think about writing about regularly. Plus, assuming it’s 52 episodes again, a good 80% of them will probably be filler. I remember when season 1 started off, I gave it an 8. Then I dropped it down to a 5 during one long stretch of fillers (the butler tournament was soooo boring). In the end, it redeemed itself, and I think I gave it a 7 (episode 49 – the Hinagiku episode was pure win).
