Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 452: I Like The Strawberry Haagen -- Review and Synopsis
|What a totally defenseless pose.|
|Hamster thinks this is happening.|
Coming out of the bath, Chiharu is greeted by a very lazy Nagi who wants some Haagen Daazs but is too lazy to go and get it herself. She tells Chiharu to go and buy some for her, but Chiharu refuses -- so Nagi suggests that they play a game called "object shiritori" which she just made up on the spot.
|Nagi is cute!|
Everyone else (Maria, Kayura, and Hamster) decide to join in and the game really heats up and goes on for a while until finally, Nagi gets a "ha" syllable, which she finally uses as an excuse to just go and buy some Vanilla Haagen Daazs herself.
Review: Well, nothing much to review here, even though I am still happy to see Nagi appear in this manga again. The new art style kinda makes her seem a bit taller and more like a teenager than a kid, but that's just me.
That fanservice shot of Chiharu might have been hot... if only she didn't have the same face and hair as Hayate in that scene.
|Cruel Woman... actually made me laugh.|
The humor is kind of a hit or miss for this chapter, but it's mildly amusing at least.
Over-all, this chapter wasn't too bad, even if it was just a way of checking in with the rest of the cast who are not too plot-relevant at the moment. I was just one Nagi-less chapter away from screaming out: "NAGI WHERE!?" too. So I suppose Hata sort of read my mind... or the mind of Nagi fans everywhere with this chapter.
I don't have a speculation corner for this week, but I do have some fanart for you Nagi fans out there. Cute, ain't she? The art style is a pastiche of the art from the Miku song, "15 Years of Pursuing a Cute Boy."
