Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 459: Stone of Bonds -- Synopsis and Review
|Sure, sure. Hina can have the cover this time. I do not mind.|
|Yukiji: Sekai de ichiban o-bake sama!|
Ikusa says he can't even touch her when she's that powerful, but Nagi has a plan. She rushes up to Yukiji and then proceeds to bribe her with 500 yen into purifying the evil spirit.
|Nagi's a more effective exorcist than Isumi here|
|I guess she does tend to solve everything with money, eh?|
|They're finally working together|
Hayate falls into the ocean feeling defeated and Ikusa dives in to rescue him. Hayate says that he did it again and Ikusa responds by saying that he just has to apologize again while handing him the pouch that contained the King's Jewel.
Review: Really action-packed chapter here. Naturally, Nagi stole the show -- quite fittingly. If you ever doubted the awesomeness of Nagi Sanzen'in, let this chapter clear your doubts.
I'd thought that Hata would make Nagi the damsel in distress again, but she turns out to be pretty useful in defeating "Higanman" - using her brains to outwit the evil spirit and exploit Yukiji-sensei's personality.
|At least she didn't get kidnapped again|
Also, I was just joking around a bit about Ikusa x Hayate being a thing, but that panel on the last page sure looks mighty suspicious.
|Looks like Kotetsu has a lot more to be worried about than he thinks|
Anyway, a very fun fast-paced chapter and it gave Nagi a chance to shine. I'm a bit disappointed in Hayate being so helpless throughout all of this though.
|That was surprising|
|Umm... just read it.|
