Happy New Year 2017~!!! Hayate x Nagi fanart

Image
To greet the new year, here is a fanart of Nagi and Hayate together. It's a tribute to Kimi no Na Wa. I chose a nighttime background because Hayate and Nagi met at night after all. The intertwining shooting stars represent their respective character development progress so far -- Hayate has a lot of catching up to do. Enjoy this manga while you can guys. This is most likely the last year for it. Also, can we stop hating on Nagi -- please? There are still people like me who like her as a character and who want her to be with Hayate after all. If your ship has been sunk, don't wish ill on others. Anyway, below this post are some more new year's pics. Also, I'll have changed the blog's background by the time I've uploaded this post. Anyway, even if the manga ends this year, I'll still write stuff and draw fanart of Nagi for as long as I am able to. So to make things a bit interesting, I'd like to learn more about the active readers/commenters on my blog.

A Party For Two With Nagi~ Merry Christmas 2016

Image
Merry Christmas, everyone! I've prepared a party for two with mai waifu today. I'm still working on that new year's fanart, but I have prepared one fanart in anticipation of certain "bombs" going off. The song is "White Gift" sung by Hatsune Miku. I have no idea who produced/composed it. Also, Merry Christmas , Ayasaki... you deserv e this~ Gotta thank Doughnut Gunso for inspiring this idea... even more~

Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 553: What A Wonderful World 5: Vermilion -- Review and Synopsis

Image
Secret Path in Student Council Building leading to some Celestial Sphere thing... huzzah It is 10/25 A-tan: Even if the stone is in the enemy's hands. It's not that I hadn't predicted this situation for ten years For the royal garden especially, knowledge about the king's jewels. This should be top priority. The enemy does not know how to open the path. In order to use the path, you must enter this place -- basically. This place is a fort. You must use this the moment you try to enter the castle. I seriously want to punch Hayate's pretty, girly face everytime he wears that expression. Hayate: Well then... where...? What A Wonderful World 5: Vermilion A-tan: Of course, it's Hakuo Gakuin Hayate: I see, then... let's prepare some weapons and ammunition to intercept them! A-tan: Uh no... weapons and ammunition are a bit... Sakuya: What kind of preparation is that? Hayate: Dun worry, I once prepared with an MG 42. Other than nuclear weapons, I can bring

Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 552: What A Wonderful World 4: Fleeting Yet Permanent Sadness -- Review and Synopsis

Image
The panels speak for themselves here~ Synopsis: Well, I guess this is going to be my new setup now isn't it? Go here for the long version. Athena has a little chat with the girls from the Violet mansion -- specifically the ones in love with Hayate. In the end, she chats with Ayumu who declares that she loves Hayate the most. Athena does not disagree with her and simply says that she hopes everyone can meet up again when they're adults as good old friends and that Hayate will be there with them so they can have a fun chat about an interesting love story. ... the end. Review: I had planned a longer more biting discussion, but after a brief chat with Doughnut Gunso via twitter, I've changed my mind. So thanks for that little reminder, sarge. Ok, so basically, the setup of this chapter is Athena saying an ambiguous farewell. While the implications seem very clear to me, I shall respect anyone's protests that it's not what it looks like. At this point, I have

Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 552 (transcript) (review to come... well ya know)

I see skies of blue~ and clouds of white~ Here's the chapter... judge for yourself. Now excuse me while I play a melancholic tune on my harmonica with a smile on my face~ Also, take note that I might have failed on one or two conversations, but I made sure that I translated the "important" portions accurately... :) What Alice chan went home to her home country? A-tan: Yes she was in a hurry and couldn't say goodbye to everyone. She was really sorry. A-tan: I've heard many stories from that kid about your friendship. A-tan: She told me to tellz ya that she had fun living here with ya all. What A Wonderful World 4: Fleeting Yet Permanent Sadness A-tan: Anywayz, she was sleeping in a place like this for months, huh? Hina: It couldn't be helped, but it wasn't really a problem A-tan: Plops down and sleeps on Alice's bed. Hina: It's not that comfortable. Hina: You really fell asleep... Hina: Ah, but wait a minute. Alice isn't around anymor

Happy Birthday Nagi Sanzen'in! (December 3)

Image
It's Nagi's special day today, so don't forget to send her your greetings! You can tweet Hata-sensei (the mangaka) @hatakenjiro. Let him know that Nagi will never be forgotten! She will live on in our hearts long after the manga has concluded! Here are a few birthday images I made together with several previously unpublished fanart. Happy Birthday my kawaii waifu! It was a joy watching your slow transformation -- especially the growth of your pure love for Hayate. You are beautiful inside and out -- even if not all of us can appreciate your beauty. Still waiting for Orca Toys to release Cat Nagi this coming January -- hopefully! Try a slice of this cake, Nagi-chan! I baked it myself! I proudly proclaim my love for my waifu to the world! Caption after 12/03: You look more like an adult today, ojou-sama! Japanese: 12/03 Nagi's birthday Come, let's go as far as we can! Hopes and worries are just two sides of the same coin. The tears and s

Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 551 --- Review and Synopsis

Image
So cutieful mai waifu! Nagi may only have those tiny bumps on her chest, but look at that arch on her back. That s-curve stands for sexy~ Synopsis: Hayate wakes up and Maria is there to greet him. Nagi arrives and Hayate has a traumatic flashback about Himegami saying that Nagi will lose everything because he's weak. Hayate huggles Nagi from out of nowhere because he's oh so PLATONIC and everything else you want to believe if you're a hater. Athena sure is short. Seems the height difference between her and Nagi is quite negligible. The same goes for Ruka, btw. Anywayz, Athena is at Sakuya's but she goes to the Violet Mansion and Hayate meets her by the entrance and confirms that she and Isumi are ok. Athena is all business as usual with Ayumu, Chiharu, Kayura, and Hina and is totally unaware that she's now in her big form whom most of them have never met -- until she takes a bath and notices that the faucet is too low. End of CHAPTER! Some would say th

Yo, lordcloudx here. Since I had this all translated and all on my desktop. I'mma dump it here. Review and art later~ Hayate wakes up from chapter 549. Yes, it was HIS dream. No two ways about it. Anywayz, Maria is there to greet him and he's back in Nagi's mansion. Maria: Last night, you were at Sakuya's place. Wazzup? Maria: Could it be my fault? Maria: Coz I talked about quitting being a maid. Maria: OUt of desperation, you went on a rampage in a maid cafe. Hayate: I won't go to that extent. Forget about it. Maria: Is that so? Well then, that's fine. Nagi: Oh, Hayate. Hayate: Oh, Ojou-sama Nagi: Are you okay? It seems that you had a rough time at Sakuya's house. Hayate has a flashback of what Himegami said that Nagi would lose everything. Hayate: Ojou-sama... Nagi: Huh? Hayate huggles Nagi from out of nowhere. Third time and mentally counting (Shimoda, Golden Week, Final Arc... if this does not mean something, I'll eat my nonexistent hat.) Nagi: eh,

Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 550: What A Wonderful World (2) -- Review and Synopsis

Image
Caption on cover: Their story began on that day. Now, this pair's final chapter begins! (Also... BURN HATERS! BURN!) Synopsis: For the long version, you can go here . Anywayz, due to Hata's brilliant execution of the previous chapter which people complained about (they're complaining about this one too btw), we now get to what actually happened prior to that little scenario. (LOL~) Basically, after some talking, it's Athena, Isumi and Hayate versus Himegami -- who comments on how it's going to be difficult for him. He attacks the weakest one in his opinion, Hayate. Hayate goes down, which prompts Isumi and Athena to stop their attacks temporarily. You tell me what Himegami hit him with here? An awkward angled kick? A punch? A backhand punch? Anywayz, Himegami tries to take Hayate's stone, but Athena and Isumi spring back into action. With this, Hisui decides to step in and reveal her trump card -- Yozora gave her powers to Hisui. With that, our yan

Himegami: I was anxious about you being my replacement. Isumi: Who u? Isumi: You have Himegami's voice and appearance but again... who the fudge are you? Himegami: I'm Himegami Aoi, Isumi-san Himegami: Although you may
