Hayate The Combat Butler Chapter 553: What A Wonderful World 5: Vermilion -- Review and Synopsis
|Secret Path in Student Council Building leading to some Celestial Sphere thing... huzzah|
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.|
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 it from the Yakuza's warehouse.
Sakuya: Did you bring it all the way from the 4th volume?
Sakuya: Anywayz, it's good to be prepared but... what do you really need from this place?
A-tan: Well, over this place, there is something I need to use.
Sakuya: Whut the fudge? This is a pretty amazing sight. There was something on top of the student council building all along?
A-tan: yeeeeees, I can monitor the royal garden from here.
A-tan: A celestial sphere
Hayate: This... Katsura sensei talked about this before, so it was true.
A-tan: Of course.
A-tan: It's still unfinished, but we're in a hurry.
A-tan: Anyway, Isumi and I will stay here.
A-tan: Hayate, you eat up and get some rest in preparation.
Hayate: I'm home~
Nagi: Oh, Hayate! Welcome back!
Chiharu: I'm visiting
Hayate: Oh, welcome, Chiharu-san
Nagi: You seem to be in a hurry.
Hayate: yeah, a little bit
Hayate: It's for ojou-sama's future, so I must do my best.
Nagi: You... so transparently...
Hayate: How is your manga coming along, ojou-sama?
Nagi: Ah, perfectly!!
Nagi: The manuscript is there. I'll be able to submit it soon.
(stupid butler takes a look. It's a pic of him hugging Nagi)
Nagi: Maybe I could buy Hayate's birthday present with the prize money for winning the manga contest.
Hayate's birthday is on November 11, right?
Hayate: A-anyway, I have some errands to do.
Hayate: :( ......
Nagi flashback: This manga is based on real life experiences
Hayate: No, it can't be...
Sakuya; By the way, what's Himegami up to?
Sakuya: I mean, he suddenly quit being Nagi's butler and now he's Hisui's butler.
Sakuya: He was also on good terms with you. He's really changed.
Isumi's grandmother: Watcha talkin about?
Isumi: Ah, grandma
Isumi: We're talkin about Himegami. Ya remember? Nagi's former butler.
Great Grandma: Ah, Ah...
Great Grandma: That kid who got cursed.
Isumi and Sakuya: Ha?
Chiharu: Well then, that's it for me.
Hayate: Ah, Chiharu-san, you're going home?
Chiharu: Yeah, I think I want to sleep in my own room today.
Hayate: I see.
Hayate: Then I'll send you off to the apartment. I'll be going to Hakuo anyway.
Chiharu: Sure, thanks
Chiharu: But seriously, you're really trying your best for Nagi, huh?
Hayate: I-is that so?
Hayate: You're always helping out everyday, Chiharu-san
Chiharu: Haha, that's what friends are for.
Chiharu: I've also been a bit inspired lately to write a light novel.
Hayate: Ah, that's great.
Chiharu: I think the trend right now is traveling to a different world and becoming a butler, don't you think?
Hayate: Yes, quite likely.
Chiharu: But I heard from Nagi. About your first meeting. It was a nice story.
Chiharu: That Christmas eve when you confessed to Nagi.
Chiharu: Oh, sorry, was it a secret? But, I haven't told anyone.
Chiharu: It was a really nice story to hear.
Chiharu: Falling in love is really nice, I think.
Chiharu: It was a fated meeting, wasn't it?
Chiharu: A really envious situation
Chiharu: I want you... was it?
Chiharu: Ayasaki, you really don't look the part, don't cha?
Chiharu: Incidentally, what part of Nagi did you like?
Hayate: I didn't...
Hayate: I didn't confess to her...
|Dun worry, my pretty little baby. You'll cry for a bit, but everything will be oook~|
Hayate: I intended to abduct ojou-sama... but...
Hayate: It's a misunderstanding.
Review: Ok, let's just turn this into a review while my connection is stable.
Whoo! What a chapter eh? I for one am glad that Hata is taking the direct approach here. He's finally removed all the safety nets on the relationship between Hayate and Nagi. How things go from here will determine the FUTURE!
I think it's a good thing that this is happening before the final, final battle with Hisui and company. Hayate's been fighting for Nagi for all the wrong reasons all this time. Now the misunderstanding has finally come to light and it can be addressed.
It's a mystery what Hayate will do from this stage. Will he try to spare Nagi's feelings and lead her on? Bad idea. Will he directly confront her and break her heart and thus inadvertently open the path? It could happen...
How about this, though? What if he tries to tell her and then he looks at her... he feels something... "wait... why... why can't I do it? Why can't I tell her that I never confessed?" Hoh, that would also be awesome.
Personally, I have no preferences as to what should happen -- I'm fully confident it goes favorably for my ship either way.
However things go from here, it's gonna be a rocky, tearful and absolutely thrilling ride - so don't take your eyes off of ths manga for a second!
Ok, for the boring stuff... yeah, we got that hint about Himegami from Isumi's grandmother which I dun really care about.
Also, hurray for you, King's Jewel's fanatics -- another one of your old theories proven right. Hakuo is indeed connected to the Royal Garden... and stuff.
Anywayz, this is exciting but we have a one week break, see ya next week (for my Nagi Christmas post that is) and dun forget to let me know your thoughts in the comments!
Fanart Corner: This is for my new year's piece. I plan to make a digital version with more interesting effects. Incidentally, Kimi No Na Wa is being aired in Philippine Theaters today. Go watch it!
