Man, this is such a good comic. Was this joke in the anime? I forget.
Reading over the Hayate comic, I’m reminded of why this is such a good series. Putting the comedy aside, each of the characters, especially the female characters, are all wonderfully written. Well, as wonderfully written as characters in a comedy can get. They certainly have every flavor for ever taste in this series, but the difference is Hayate doesn’t feel produced. I think what helps this is that Kenjiro Hata is honestly an otaku, so when he’s shameless pandering to whatever kink he’s pandering too, it’s honest. I mean, you have to be down in pretty deep to be able to make Gundress jokes.
