Watching the LoL playoffs in PAX at the time of this post.

The "Hayate No Gotoku" franchise has been growing oh-so steadily. After season 1, season 2, and the movie, it took them awhile to cough up a pretty mediocre season 3 (compared to the first 2 seasons) featuring a non-cannon side story. Now to follow that up, "Hayate No Gotoku! Cuties" was aired less than a year later. To make things worst, the first episode makes you go complete WTF, they never explained anything, we don't know what happened after the events of season 3, we don't even know if "Cuties" is a proper sequel! However, while things don't make any sense at all, it quickly grows on you. "Hayate No Gotoku! Cuties" takes on a different style than previous seasons. Instead of a complete story split into 12 episodes, it focuses on giving the spotlight to a single character for each episode, which is a great idea IMO. "Hayate No Gotoku! Cuties" may be a different type of "Hayate No Gotoku", but its still a fun series that will put smiles on the faces of its fans.

Meet Hayate's harem!

I've always been okay with the opening songs in most of the "Hayate No Gotoku" opening songs. " Haru ULALA   Love yo Koi" is the new opening for the anime, sung by Shizuka Itou (seiyuu of Hinagiku), and honestly its not really to my liking. It doesn't really fit as a song for "Hayate No Gotoku" in my opinion, more like a song for another one of those regular high school romance animes. The ending songs change for each episode, sung by the seiyuu of the character that was featured in THAT episode. Some of those are pretty good, but since there are SO many ending songs, I'll just leave it at that.

Rating: 7.5/10

With the new episode styles of focusing on a single character (or sometimes, characters), I enjoyed myself quite a bit with "Hayate No Gotoku! Cuties". If you're familiar with the franchise, you know that "Hayate No Gotoku" has A SHIT TON of characters, so many that its difficult to even fit ALL of them into a 24 episode anime, even if you introduce 70% of them as minor characters. Having an episode each to dedicate to these characters is a really good idea to divide screen time, instead of giving all the screen time to Nagi and Hinagiku (though I don't mind Hinagiku having more). Also, this time we have a new character entering the fray, A-tan, which is actually the chibi-fied, deformed version of Athene, whom is a ton of fun to watch. 

A-tan objects!

As with every season, "Cuties" stars Ayasaki Hayate as its unlucky (or in some cases, very lucky) main lead. The debt ridden butler continues his job as is and instead of serving just Nagi now, he serves a house filled with girls. With Nagi's newly bought apartment, many girls have begun living there, Hinagiku, Ayumu, Chiharu, Kayura, A-tan and more. Nagi also goes there with Maria from time to time, and that means Hayate has to tag along. At the apartment, Hayate is the butler for ALL the girls there, not just Nagi. So with his new life in tact, Hayate tries to serve every single girl there (and for some reason many of them like him), while trying to remain as loyal to Nagi as possible.

After all is said and done, I think "Cuties" is an improvement over the questionable "Can't take my eyes off you", aka season 3. They never explain much about how "Cuties" came about story wise, and that is probably its one and only major flaw. Everything else makes the show quite fun to watch, and honestly I don't really mind. With the way the series ended, I think we haven't seen the end of Hayate. Who knows, we might be getting something really soon.
