Hayate no Gotoku!! 2nd Season (ハヤテのごとく!! Hayate no Gotoku!!?), known in English as Hayate the Combat Butler 2nd Season is a 25-episode anime, excluding OVA, and was aired in Japan between April 3, 2009 and September 18, 2009, produced by J.C.Staff. Episode 0 of this season is an Original Video Animation (OVA) and was released in Japan on March 6, 2009, counting as an ending of the season. Unlike the first season, the second season retcons the events of the first season by stating at the onset that a month has passed since Hayate became Nagi's butler, and not a year, as shown in the first season, thus following most of the timeline in the original manga with its own open-ending OVA (Episode 0). This season focuses more intently on the manga plot, unlike the first season which only followed it partially. It follows the story from Volume 5 Chapter 52 to Volume 14 Chapter 148.
