Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 446: A Love Comedy Without The Comedy - Synopsis and Review
Synopsis: Mini Athena seems unperturbed at all by what has just happened and remains totally calm as some kind of ghost seems to be approaching her. She’s also fairly certain that nothing can put Hayate and Hinagiku in any real danger.
|This line seems like it belongs in some h-doujin... no, really.|
Back to Hayate and Hina who’d just fallen into some kind of wormhole in the sand, they deduce that it must have been a trap set by the ghost of the murderer. As they’re trying to find their way out, Hayate falls into a second wormhole leaving Hina all alone. She encounters the ghost of one of the murderer’s victims and gets totally freaked out when it turns around to reveal a skull instead of a face. Suddenly, something grabs her leg from behind. She’s about to scream, but then is relieved to discover that it was Hayate who had managed to climb out of the hole. She clings onto Hayate and claims that she got so scared that she can’t walk anymore. Hayate gives her a piggyback ride and they continue searching for a way out.
|Seems Hina and Nagi have the same taste in footwear.|
Hayate uses this moment to tell Hina that he thinks she looked cute when she was scared. Finally, what Chiharu had told her about using this opportunity to go on the offensive clicks with her. She holds on tight to Hayate and appears to be set for a confession… but, I guess we’ll find out where that goes next week.
|Hyper Gigolo powers activated|
Meanwhile , mini-Athena says hello the ghost of Mr. Murderer, but we don’t actually see said ghost yet – that is, if ghosts can be seen
|Reminds me of Corpse Party|
Review: Hmm… what can I say except that this felt like nothing more than a transition chapter. Seems like the really juicy stuff will happen next week.
For the Hina fans at least, this chapter was filled with several shipteasing moments, but what all that will ultimately come down to hasn’t even been revealed yet.
Also, for those still waiting for big A-tan, not quite yet this week, people. At least you get to see her on the cover eh?
|Athena: Lookit the number of *bleep* I give|
No speculation corner this week. Can’t think of a thing. In fact, I have very little to say about this chapter in general. Oh well, let’s just wait and see what happens.
