Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 482: Committed To The Result -- Review and Synopsis
|Honestly, she looks like she not only came from another era, but another manga altogether.|
|Hina's shocked face is too cute here.|
|LOL! Go on, continue!|
Next up, we check in with Athena and Isumi inside the secret room in the Violet Mansion who are still trying to figure out King's Jewels related stuff and trying to reconcile some inconsistencies with what they now know about the King's Jewels and what Mikado said.
Since they have no leads, Isumi pulls out an iPad Mini and makes it out to be some kind of magic box wherein a robot who can solve any problems called Siri resides. Surprisingly, Athena is so out of touch with 21st century technology that she takes Isumi's word for it hook line and sinker.
|Little miss plot device doing her thing.|
|She really is genuinely surprised.|
|I can just about imagine Hata laughing at his own work as he drew this.|
In the end, Isumi and Athena decide to have Ell-chan use the iPad Mini to calculate a simple addition problem for them.
Anyway, it results in a 10, which probably means that there are now officially 10 King's Jewels, for those who are interested in that sort of thing.
Having resolved that problem, Nagi says that it's time to proceed to help someone else out so off they go.
|I guess she's tagging along now as Ell-chan's new recognized master.|
Review: Well, this was a heavily amusing chapter. Also, did I call it or what on a third-party interrupting Ayumu's kiss attack?
Anyway, Hina's face was too cute and funny just when she stumbled upon that scene. With that said, looks like Hata managed to resolve that pretty quickly without anyone getting too deeply hurt.
|You'd think Siri would bring up a picture of Hayate or something.|
We can probably just about (see speculation corner) say goodbye to Konoha indefinitely since Ayumu's already resolved the misunderstanding involving her and Hayate's found her a part-time job, it seems.
I had a lot of laughs at this chapter, although I did feel that the Siri jokes were a bit trite. Hata does go the extra length of having Isumi and Athena have exaggerated reactions though.
Speculation Corner: With this arc seemingly drawing to a close, I'd say that the one needing Ell-chan's services right now (healing a broken heart) would probably be Konoha herself since Hayate's just flat-out rejected her. I wouldn't be surprised if Nagi's party bumps into her in the next chapter.
Also, I have to wonder about Athena's musings about "the 21st century," she makes it seem as if she doesn't belong in the current time period -- which would not be a surprise given how the Royal Garden seems to work and the elements of time in the series such as the Kurotsubaki and even how Hayate leapt through time in Radical Dreamers.
Anyway, that's it for now. See you in the next chapter!
