Dalam kenangan: Bendera Brunei Darussalam sedang dinaikkan, penulis ada di sana pada masa itu, kebetulan pula yang hari itu ialah hari jadinya......
Selepas itu, penulis balik, dan terus melihat cerita kartun animasi kegemarannya, iaitu "Hayate The Combat Butler". Diantara watak yang paling dia minati ialah watak Chiharu Harukaze( GAMBAR ), iaitu Setiausaha Majlis Pelajar di Akademi Hakuo, Tokyo, Jepun.

WATAK 2 DALAM 1
Agak mengejutkan apabila Chiharu Harukaze, seorang yang agak pendiam dan rajin di dalam tugasnya sebagai setiausaha majlis pelajar, menjadi orang gaji di rumah sepupu Nagi Sanzenin, iaitu Sakuya Aizawa.
Kisahnya adalah kerana syarikat milik ayahnya bankrap, jadi ibunya pula tidak panda bekerja, jadi dia telah membuat keputusan untuk menjadi orang gaji di rumah sepupu Nagi, tapi apabila syarikat ayahnya berjaya diselamatkan, anak orang kaya ini masih kekal sebagai orang gaji di rumah Sakuya yang indah itu, dalam keadaan yang SANGAT MALU, kerana dikhuatiri yang 'identiti'nya itu akan terbongkar!

WATAK CHIHARU YANG AGAK MELUCUKAN
Dari pandangan penulis, watak Chiharu ini tidaklah terkenal sangat seperti Nagi Sanzenin, Sakuya Aizawa, Maria dan Hayate Ayasaki serta Ayumu Nishizawa dan Hinagiku Katsura, tetapi watak inilah yang memberi 'keceriaan yang sebenar - benarnya' kepada penulis. Ini kerana keberaniannya untuk menjadi orang gaji, walaupun IDENTITInya itu hampir - hampir TERBONGKAR!

Hayate no Gotoku!! 2nd Season – 23-24
Sakuya turns 15 years old but the episode focused on practically everyone else but her.
Sakuya’s birthday and the “Ferris wheel” scene. Neither were quite what I was expecting, but it seems like we’re finally at the climax of the series. There’s no doubt about it now: episode 25 will be the finale of this second season. While it seems like we’re going to be left with another open-ended conclusion, things have been pretty entertaining along the way. In retrospect, I actually prefer things this way since it leaves the series open to a possible third season. All we have to check for now is some message at the end of next week’s episode indicating that a third season has gotten the green light. There’s a lot of hoping and wishing in that statement, but who knows — I was surprised that the 52 episode first season was popular enough to get this season produced.
With my short spew on the series as a whole out of the way, let’s see what actually happened these past two episodes.
Behold! Student Council Vice President Kasumi Aika, whom I should know already but can’t recall for the life of me.
This much malicious intent from the idea of selling off some school property. Imagine what would happen if you rubbed her the wrong way.
First off, we have the student council vice president Kasumi Aika showing her dark, sadistic, and opportunistic tendencies. Apparently she showed up in the first season as well, but I honestly have no recollection of her at all so this was all new to me. She’s played by Katou Emiri no less (Hiiragi Kagami in Lucky Star) so I thought I would’ve taken notice to her. But then again, I guess that was two years ago and Emiri was just making her big debut.
If anyone ever saw all the stuffed animals in Chiharu’s room, her serious secretary-like cover would be so blown.
This is way beyond a mere interest in cute uniforms. We have a serious obsession/fetish going on here.
I love this pose and overly cute greeting. I wish I knew a girl who secretly hides a cute personality behind a serious one…
…so that I can tease her in situations like this.
Next up, more Harukaze Chiharu (a.k.a. “Haru-san”) whom I’m growing more fond of the more I see her. It’s probably because she’s somewhat of a tsundere, except that her weak, soft, embarrassed side is actually a cheerful, cute uniform-obssessed, secret personality, which if exposed could result in the very breakdown of her character. It’s at her expense, but entirely for my own enjoyment so I loved how Aika realized she was Sakuya’s maid right away. That, and how she made special note of it to use against Chiharu in the future. All this when Chiharu didn’t do anything to get on Aika’s bad side. Oh the hilarity. :)
Sakuya really enjoys a good laugh. And I mean REALLY enjoys.
Too bad Wataru can’t deliver when he’s put on the spot. Queue missing finger part 1.
This is what I love about Sakuya’s character. Childhood friend comes to the rescue. Aww…
You can just sense Wataru’s heart being crushed as Isumi delivers the killing blow. “Your jokes suck Wataru.”
I was a bit surprised how much screentime Wataru got this around. Watching his embarrassed reactions in front of Isumi hasn’t gotten old yet, but having Isumi bluntly tell him that he sucks is a whole new level. If it weren’t for Sakuya comforting him a bit here, he may have gone off to kill himself for real this time. On a separate note, I chuckled at Sakuya’s comment about Wataru being a hero in his past life. I could be totally off with this reference, but Mashin Eiyuuden Wataru immediately came to mind because of Inoue Marina (Wataru) and Nakajima Saki (Saki)’s song on the Hayate no Gotoku! Character COVER CD — “STEP”. Despite how old that Sunrise anime is (aired in April 15, 1988), the opening song is actually quite catchy. Marina and Saki did an awesome cover of it too, which I recommend giving a quick listen to here. Since they’re singing in character, Marina’s using her deeper, boyish voice, which somehow fits perfectly.
You can’t quite put things into perspective without comparing it to the original by a.chi-a.chi though, so let’s take a trip down memory lane shall we?
