Sigh. Looks like Manglobe's still retaining the somewhat rough style they used for the character designs from the movie they animated last year.

Wow, that gay-looking Hayate is going to take some getting used to. Still, I'm looking forward vura, vura mooch. If it's funny, that's all I care about.

I hope Athena will be in this one. And somehow I don't like the new design except for Luka.

Looks much better in motion then I was expecting off of that first image. The character design is still kinda weird though.

Damn, the character design is really bugging me. The only one that looks good is Ruka.

Why is their hair so big? It looks like they're all wearing wigs that don't fit their heads- and Hayate looks a LOT younger than he should. It seems really 'shiny' too.

I don't really like it, but it's... tolerable, I guess. If the show's funny enough, it'll make up for it.

not to always be a rebuttal guy but hayate has always looked gay pun intended. I mean they make him cross-dress more than once so it's just fitting that.

Yeah, but I'm not talking about his character design in cross-dress mode. I'm talking about him in so called "normal" butler mode. Dude definitely looks like he vacays on Fire Island. I guess they were trying to go for a bishonen vibe? Fail.

I'm glad to see more Hayate the Combat Butler; I've seen the film and it was...odd to say the least.

Even if this is an original story and not a continuation of the manga, I want to see what they do with the characters. Anime smile

Well, it looks a lot better than the movie. The animation is crisp, but I still prefer the earlier character designs. In any case, it looks as fun as ever, so I'll be watching it regardless! Wink

Holy crap, that character design looks pretty weird.
Regardless, looking forward to more Hayate, as long as it makes me laugh.
