Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 514 (Japanese): Everyone's Heart Is In The Money
|The series' most beautiful "adult woman" makes the cover.|
Maria: Why? Coz I was bored.
Maria: Now lemme explain
(Haha! Dun expect me to translate this. I hate technical stuff)
-Ya need a coin to make a bet and you have to find them underground
Maria: By the way, Kayura and Aika are already underground so you'd better hurry~
Hayate: S'up, ojou-sama? Let's go.
Nagi: I've got a bad feeling about this, Hayate
Basically, you gotta beat Maria as the dealer to win this game
|Nagi's expressions never fail to amuse me.|
Yukiji, Isumi and Yukiji appear. Yukiji says it's wrong not to take up the challenge.
Hayate: Awright everyone, let's go fer it... fu....
Hayate and Nagi make a reference to some anime/manga which escapes me
Tsugumi and Glasses girl appear to save the day!
Chiharu: Who's the glasses girl?
Ruri sees one of those debt-enhancing atm machines and decides to withdraw a wad of cash so they can enter
Anyway, they all run inside led by Nagi... until she runs out of stamina.
|That one eyebrow raised up. So cute.|
I have no idea why either Hina, Hayate or Yukiji can't just leap up to get it.Anyway, the walls can't be climbed according to Hina and there's a machine that spits out bricks in exchange for money. There's also another cowcow card atm machine conveniently located next to it.
Yukiji suckers everyone into investing in the bricks to get the gold coin because she has a secret plan.
Anywayz, they all cooperate somehow and get the coin. Now they can play the game against Maria. The money used to buy the bricks was bought with everyone's help. Anywayz, the racked up a huge amount of debt doing so. 1.82 billion yen
After getting the coin, Yukiji reveals her secret plan... she has Hayate's passport... coz ya know, he lost it on purpose to win the previous game.
Hayate: (whines) Sensei, give it back to me!
Yukiji: Oh, I'll give it back to you alrighty... but this ain't a game.
We're gonna beat that demon (Maria)
Review: Well... a rather inconsequential chapter, although I have to admit that I'm a bit interested in what Yukiji was thinking. Also, Yukiji finding Hayate's passport just goes to show that nothing in this manga ever happens without a reason -- even if Hata hasn't figured out what that reason might be at the point that the happening was first introduced LOL!
|Nagi has such a sexy way of running here... seriously.|
Also, Nagi was cute as usual and very expressive. Yeah, in case you haven't figured it out yet, Nagi's appearance is a large part of why I like her so much -- but that's not all, ya know!
Lessee... so apparently, Maria's unbeatable at gambling or something.
What I found really strange in this chapter is how Yukiji got everyone to trust in her so easily... although, I suppose Yukiji always having ulterior motives is known only to a few characters like Hina, Hayate and Nagi(?) even though it's pretty much an open secret to us, the readers. Still, you'd think they'd exercise a little bit more caution after they'd seen how greedy she can be when she was dealing with those terrorists in the hotel.
Anywayz, it looks like everyone's together now and if you were wondering if Hina had joined the competition or not, well, there she is.
Also, no break next week. The way things are going, I really don't think Hayate will be burdened with a new debt.
Fanart Corner: It's Christmas! Therefore, it's Nagi-santa time. A little personal, but I am an atheist, but just because I am, it doesn't mean that I don't like Christmas. I don't need to believe in Christmas' pagan origins nor do I have to make it all about the birth of Christ in order to enjoy the festivities of this season -- that's just narrow-minded thinking, so if that's what you're thinking -- stop! Just stop.
Ok, rant aside. Here's the fanart.
|Lookit dat Hayate! You blind, blind man, you!|
