Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 522: Serialization Break 11 Years. From Now On -- Review And Synopsis
|Beautiful as always~|
Synopsis: Nagi: Ika-chan is ending
Talks with Chiharu for a while about it and how she is sad about it.
Some breaking the 4th wall stuff about long serializations being hard. Also, we see Ashibashi sensei being used to illustrate this.
Nagi goes on a monolgue about long serializations and the climax of the story and about how the ideal is Urusei Yatsura with the climax also being the ending.
Chiharu: With that said... have you drawn any manga lately?
Chiharu: Yeah, you said you'd submit one to Sunday
Nagi: Ah yes... yes, I should draw, shouldn't I?
Nagi: But ya see, I dun have any interesting ideas lately. We just came back from America yesterday after all.
(Calendar shown... we're still at the final days of September)
Chiharu reminds her that she's still got that competition with Ruka after ten years.
Nagi: Yosh! I shall now devote myself to Ika-chan.
Chiharu: That's devotion to selfishness, isn't it?
She then goes off to consult Hayate over at Cafe Donguri
Hayate: Eh, draw manga?
Nagi: Right, I'm gonna win an award before my birthday.
Hayate: Well, your enthusiasm is admirable, but what kind of manga?
Nagi: Love comedy~! I'm gonna use what happened during the school excursion.
Hayate: Eh, so it's gonna be like a travel manga?
Nagi: Right, and the hero... comes from space in the future and is the ultimate programmer~
Nagi: Naturally, she is a bishoujo (panel shows Hinagiku) who crash landed on a pre-apocalyptic Earth from the 20th century (seriously... wtf, mai waifu? What are you thinking? Oh wait... this is a plug for Ad Astra, isn't it?)
She uses an Iphone to call her companion's spacecraft (not sure about this translation)
Nagi: blah blah something about vodafone's acquisition and this is how the story starts
Hayate: Wait... this is too high level for me.
Hamster: Suggests something about Vodafone and the heroine's power.
Nagi: Ah, I get it.
Hayate: so... the story aside, this is based on real life experiences right?
Nagi: OF COURSE!
Nagi: The heroine loves to go to buffet places
Hayate: And you're going to ignore all the difficulties of the journey?
Hayate: As expected, it's something strange again this time.
Nagi: Hmm... but this configuration isn't based on real life isn't it?
Nagi: For 32 pages, I need to cut out unnecessary elements
Hayate: Ah, as expected, Ojou-sama... has really grown up a little bit.
A few days later...
|I'm going to kill someone if he betrays her feelings -- for good. A temporary betrayal of feelings is well justifiable.|
Nagi: It's done!
Hayate: Have you finished the manga's name?
Nagi: Yup, read it!
Omnipotent Butler Hayata Kun
This is the story of the teen butler and his mistress
The teen butler was experiencing many difficulties
The butler was born with a strong body and was very courageous.
Meanwhile, the oujou-sama was a self-indulgent millionaire.
The two shared many life and death experiences together and naturally, a bond was formed between them.
However, the final stage would be their biggest problem yet.
It would break the ties between them...
but the two of them would get over it together
And the final stage would be where they fall in love with each other for their happy ending. They would live together for many years to come.
Nagi: Well, what do you think?
Hayate: Well... it's certainly an interesting story, isn't it?
Nagi: As expected, using my real feelings to tell the story wasn't wrong.
Nagi: All right... time to draw the manuscript.
Hayate: ... love each other?
Review: Wow... this was a really heavy chapter. It started out innocently enough and I really thought this would be another fruitless gag chapter, and then all of a sudden, Nagi has just inadvertently confessed to Hayate through her manga.
This is it, guys! The end is not just near! The end is HERE! Prepare for t-t-teh DRAMA!
Now there are lots of implications here, but I don't think they're especially bad. The way I see it, this is clearly a setup for the "bomb between them" to finally go off somehow. At some point, Hayate has to make a decision now that Nagi's feelings have been made clear to him.
Of course, the way Nagi's feelings have been suddenly thrust out at Hayate, he really cannot be expected to accept them at this point -- and this is why I believe that the "bomb between them" will go off soon.
If Hayate is going to develop feelings for Nagi, then he needs at least a chapter or two to actively think about her -- where she really stands in his life and he has to make his own decision. There is no Nagi to bail him out this time, like she's always been doing whenever he needs to make a crucial decision.
Naturally, things will never go the way Nagi spelled out so plainly in her manga because that would be terrible writing -- but the question is: How will her heart be broken? How will Hayate respond to her feelings right now? We know for sure that he has never considered her to be a romantic prospect before, well now he has no choice. He can't be evasive with this girl and he knows it.
Don't forget that we've still got the
Anyway, amazing chapter and I eagerly look forward to what comes next -- although I also have butterflies in my stomach knowing that Nagi is going to get hurt again pretty soon... still, we need to get this misunderstanding out of the way -- FINALLY!
The ball is in Hayate's court now... let's see what he does with it.
Anyway, there are lots of little things in this chapter too, such as the nod to the whole 10 year promise with Ruka and Hayate acknowledging Nagi's growth as an individual but... they all pale in comparison to the actual gist of this chapter.
|Babeh~ you are absolutely gorgeous~!|
