Summary:

One night, Hina has a dream where Hayate gives her a kiss for her birthday present; it seems she’s had the same dream for a while now, and because of that she’s been spacing out a lot. She wonders if the feelings she’s experiencing is love, but quickly denies it; though she admits she’s been thinking about Hayate a lot lately and attributes it to him being abandoned by his parents and recalls a memory of herself asking her sister where their parents are. As Hina’s thinking about this, Hayate and Nagi appear behind her; they talk about how Nagi is tutoring Hayate since he’s in danger of repeating a grade. This gets Hina frustrated and angry, and she wonders why she’s been dreaming about such a person. Hina’s anger is painfully obvious and Nagi asks Hayate what he’s done to make Hina angry. Hina tells Hayate she won’t forgive him if he fails to advance to the next grade and walks off. Hayate feels he needs to do something, so he goes off to apologize to Hina; though he has no idea what to apologize for. Hina goes back to thinking of how Hayate was abandoned just as Hayate catches up to her; Hina asks him how he felt when his parents abandoned him with a debt.  Hayate, somewhat confused, replies that it felt like they were horrible people and they fail as humans. Hina, seemingly desperate, asks if he ever thought there was a reason why they left; Hayate replies that it wouldn’t matter if there was a reason, the fact is that they still left.

Elsewhere Isumi and Sakuya are in a storage room somewhere where some Hinamatsuri dolls are; Isumi tells Sakuya not to touch the dolls as they are cursed, particularly not to take off the head otherwise the seal would be removed and the unluckiest person would be cursed. Sakuya plays and takes off the head of the dolls anyway; though existentially. Back at the mansion Nagi is passively scolding Hayate for getting Hina a birthday present, as she bought Hina a 300,000 yen watch because Hayate got her a gift. Although the watch wasn’t much to Nagi, she tells Hayate it was still an unnecessary purchase and reminds Hayate that if it weren’t for her he’d be the unluckiest person in the world. As Hayate leaves the room to do his chores, Nagi and Maria are shocked to notice that Hayate is wearing a maid’s outfit. Maria asks him a few questions such as “Have you ever thought you were different from other people?”, but as Hayate is unaware of what he’s wearing; all his answers sound ambiguous. Maria assures Hayate that Nagi and she don’t mind that Hayate wears “clothes like that”, and Hayate finally becomes aware of what he’s wearing; at this time Sakuya and Isumi come in.

Isumi informs them that the curse is from a doll craftsman who wanted to cross-dress; apparently he was killed when he accidentally dressed the doll of the king in women’s clothing, and his lingering regret to wear women’s clothes gave rise to the curse. Isumi continues saying that if the curse isn’t lifted before the end of Hinamatsuri, Hayate will turn into a boy who likes to cross-dress for the rest of his life. The only way to break the curse is to defeat the person who stands at the highest place in the area, which is insinuated to be Hina. Meanwhile Hina is considering the unlikely possibility that she likes Hayate, and starts turning red at the prospect. Father Linn comments that she looks distressed and tells her that if she’s confused, she should close her eyes and think out it; your heart will tell you what needs to be done.

Back at the mansion Hayate figures out that the highest place would be the clock tower at Hakuō, so therefore Hayate must defeat Hina. Isumi says she’ll explain the situation to Hina, since it’d be embarrassing for Hayate to go as he is right now. Hayate becomes relieved, as he’s sure Hina will lose on purpose to him because she’s nice enough of a person to do so.  Back with Hina, she starts recalling past events involving Hayate, and comes to the conclusion that her feelings stem from unresolved issues from the marathon race and believes she’ll feel better if she fights Hayate again. At that moment Isumi shows up with a letter of challenge for Hina, and tells Hina to go to the location for further details; though Isumi tries to say more, but she cant’ get a word in edge wise. That night Hayate is dressed in a cloak and waiting. Izumi shows up and wonders why Hayate is wearing a cloak and tries to see what’s underneath; which sends Hayate running away. Hayate runs into Izumi’s butler Kotetsu and his cloak falls off; Kotetsu falls in love with Hayate and asks her “her” name. Hayate replies his name is Ayasaki Hermione and tries to get away. Meanwhile Hina is outside holding Masamune and preparing for her duel with Hayate.

Opinions:

Well, they brought up the whole “Don’t you think you parents had a reason for abandoning you?” question up early; wonder if that’ll play a role in how this arc turns out. Other than that, the episode followed the manga smoothly and we got to see a lot of cute Isumi scenes. What’s really got me excited though is that we get to see Hina dressed up like Lacus Clyne or Meer Campbell (We’ve all noticed the resemblance), and hopefully sing A Cruel Angel’s Thesis next episode. Seeing that there’s already a version of the song sung by Itō Shizuka there should be no reason for these expectations not to be met. I can’t wait till the next episode is out!
