there were only few days left before summer holiday come to an end. Hayate, Nagi and their gang decided to spend the remaining holiday at the countryside, where Nishizawa had a place for them to stay. a mysterious spirit appeared to Hayate, promising to save him. as puzzled as he was, Hayate woke up the next day where Nagi's existence were wiped off everyone's mind, including his.
for once, the Hayate no Gotoku! series (2007-2011) was considered tolerable if not enjoyable. although the plot doesn't strayed far from Hayate over-protecting Nagi from whatever harm come her way, the supernatural occurrences actually made it interesting. Nagi showed an independent side of her that transformed her into a much more likable character than the usual bossy self. Hayate however, remained as unbelieving as he was in the previous sequels, where he presented himself a loyal servant to Nagi, oblivious of any romantic feelings towards any of the girls that surrounded him, including Nagi.
