*Edit: A big apology for how this post seemingly appeared 2-3 times on Nano, it was me publishing copies of this post over and over again because for some reason I couldn't edit it after publishing it for the first time...
Thanks to this blog post which I am openly ripping off (minus the Code Geass fanservice) I now know the 'secret' behind the seemingly random eyecatches of that blasted Combat Butler show. So it's really a series long game of shiritori huh? (You know, that Japanese word game where each player has to think of a word starting with the last syllable of the word before - see School Rumble or Galaxy Angels for other ridiculous but less elaborate ways of incorporating it into anime)
If you have a Nico Video account, feel free to watch the 9-minute video to relive all that eyecatch wonder in compressed form (and be prepared to have that eyecatch music stuck in your head for the rest of the day).
And I thought they were just spouting random lines to make even more old school anime references that I would never hope to get... Unfortunately, even after finding out this much, it's still hasn't convinced me that Hayate is the best thing in comedy since
And in return for being a total post thief (please don't sue me ZeoiNagePotato), I'll just pimp out The Legend of Zunderella (which I just found today ORZ) which is a much better looking Blogspot (*collective gasp of disdain from all you Wordpress users*) blog than mine, so you should visit it for more of ZeoiNagePotato's posts on Tanaka Rie and such =P (And please, keep snappy comments like "Oh great, just what we need, another Singaporean blogger" to a minimum - no offence meant XD)
