Hayate takes a test to see if he will be able to transfer into Nagiâ€™s school.
Wow, this episode was very good by itself and all, and had great funny moments and a tad of the touching ones, but really the only thing I can think of is how pissed off I am that Hayate didnâ€™t make it in. I know itâ€™s just an episode in some show but I was really hoping that he would make it in. It would make so many things much more interesting; it would open up a new setting for the show and make things much funnier. It would give a perfect way for the relationship between Hayate and Nagi to advance, plus give him time with some of the other more neglected characters. I canâ€™t believe that he didnâ€™t get in damnit. Iâ€™m a bit surprised at how upset I am of this, as like I said before a lot of the good comedy of this show comes from the pathetic’ness of Hayate and how bad off he is but it almost seems like this doesnâ€™t really fit into that category. Plus, on top of all of this, As if that wasnâ€™t enough, heâ€™ll be fired for not passing the exam. Although I donâ€™t thin that will actually happen, itâ€™s still been said. Perhaps whatever allows him to stay as a butler may let him in, but Iâ€™m not sure. I feel so sorry for him and pissed off that he didnâ€™t get in. I donâ€™t know if itâ€™s at the writers or at the reasons behind why he failed but still, GAH!
I suppose there is still a chance for him to get in, but really I donâ€™t see it happening now. Not that I donâ€™t still want it to happen. I feel that Iâ€™ll be almost even more pissed off next episode, because as the preview showed itâ€™s basically a fake celebration of him getting in when he didnâ€™t get in at all. Thatâ€™s almost even more horrible. â€œCongratulations Hayate on achieving something that will bring meaning to your pathetic lifeâ€¦oh, wait a minute, you failedâ€ especially at how big of the party it is. And although itâ€™s kind of the teacherâ€™s fault he did so badly, the sill took the test and failed so because of HOW he failed I donâ€™t really see him just being let in. I donâ€™t really think he could take the test again and I don’t see his reason for failing being enough of the teachers fault or enough of an outside influence to just let him in anyways. Iâ€™m almost tempted to try and read the manga so I can find out if he gets in or not because thatâ€™s all I care about now. Once the next episode is released Iâ€™ll probably even just fast forward though it to see what happens.
Even though I just expressed how mad I am at turn of events in this episode, Iâ€™m a bit surprised and impressed with the show at the same time. I really do feel strongly about this in the show, and itâ€™s only a recently touched on topic/arc in a show, yet it could invoke these kinds of emotions. Definitely because of how well defined the characters are, but still surprising none the less.
