Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 492: It's A Cold Night, So Let's Get Wild -- Review And Synopsis
|I kinda like the way she's been drawn here.|
We go back to the prison hotel where the Hakuo baka-trio are talking. Izumi is thinking of giving up but then Risa feeds her and Miki a sob story from out of nowhere and almost convinces them not to retire, but Izumi points out how long the trip lasts and Risa immediately presses her completer.
|All Nagi... all the time!|
We then see a flashback with Aika and her butler, which undoubtedly become relevant in the future... but I don't care exactly how.
Back to Nagi... we're now at the point where she's on her face and then cursing some woman. She walks around a bit and it's really cold. She wonders where Tsugumi could have gone off to and thinks about how she saved her... of course, she might really die from the cold. She calls out to Hayate a few times but then decides that he won't come to help her since he's still up in that mountain cabin.
|Nagi's expressions are the best!|
She thinks about retiring and pressing her completer, but decides against it because it's all for Hayate! Hah!
Anyway, she walks around a bit more and is reunited with Tsugumi. The chapter ends here with Tsugumi reunited with her onee-san.
|Lookit this reject from Tsukihime attacking Nagi.|
Review: Loved this chapter! I actually read the Japanese raws in advance so the summary I used is the spoiler that I typed on facebook for the Japanese version... anyway, it's not too far detached from RHS' version.
|Hata: THIS! Is what happens to people who try to harm Nagi in my manga! Also, loli pantyshot!|
Good stuff here. I personally could have done without that little 1st page recap. Anyway, I like how Tsugumi is currently being portrayed because she seems to be the exact same character from Can't Take My Eyes Off You -- and I liked her there. It also puts aside most people's fears that she might turn violent on Nagi for some reason.
Anyway, I was actually expecting Elle-chan the android to come from out of nowhere to save Nagi, but it was Ruri who came instead. Actually, with Ruri's martial arts skills (we don't know if it's Systema just yet) and Nagi's brains, those two would actually make a formidable team and arguably a good match for Hayate and Hinagiku -- that is, if the plot does go this route, but I'm sure it's not going to be as straightforward as that since Hata does love his unexpected plot twists.
|Nagi's going back to her old ways...|
|NOT! You might not want to admit it, but she's clearly doing everything for Hayate.|
I mean, Kananiwa hasn't shown herself to be "evil" just yet. Even if she is involved with the King's Jewels.
|Yup, Tsugumi's a good kid after all.|
On the other hand, what has Hayate ever done for her in the 150 chapters, huh? Yeah, we need some reciprocity soon.
To conclude, I like the way this new arc is developing.
Fanart Corner: Got tons of new fanart this week because of the one week break... one of them NSFW. Also, one for the Hamster since it was her birthday last May 15.
