Hayate no Gotoku! 253

Hayate no Gotoku!

Nagi’s Crowning Moment of Heartwarming continues on in this chapter…. and Hayate finally makes his decision!

Hayate no Gotoku!

Hayate no Gotoku!

Hayate no Gotoku!

Well, “protect” doesn’t mean the same as “love” right? But the Nagi camp still scores a big win here.

Hayate no Gotoku!

And… another big win here too. I wonder if Hayate’s this bold because he still thinks of Nagi as a child though. I certainly can’t imagine this being done if it was someone older.

Hayate no Gotoku!

Hayate no Gotoku!

Hayate no Gotoku!

Hayate no Gotoku!

Hayate no Gotoku!

And Hayate heads out to save A-tan. I certainly can’t wait for the next chapter now! Damn, Hayate’s getting way more serious business.

    I’m starting to forget that hayate is a comedy manga but with all this drama who needs comedy?

    Kind of surprising how this is all going. The drama is still well-constructed however.

    So many misunderstandings waiting to explode still. But I do wonder if Nagi realizes just how different life will be if Mikado goes through with his threat… especially since Mikado was the one who brought Maria into Nagi’s life as a tutor and presumably will be forced to leave Nagi should the threat prove real. He may even be Maria’s guardian, which means given that she’s a YOUNG 17, still is under his control as far as where she lives.

    But I want to see Athena’s response to the destroyed gem even more now.

    @Shiranui: Hina’s still in the sidelines for now.

    Is this a sign that Hayate is coming to an end? I mean, this is pretty much a finale in my eyes, since a lot of questions that have been raised throughout the manga is now being answered. It’d be a shame if it ended though, since the series still has a lot potential left imo.

    Isn’t this a loophole? Mikado said whoever destroys the stone inherits the fortune right? If Nagi destroyed the stone, doesn’t she inherit it?

    Kuro, we’ve got a spammer here! Merry Krismassu.

    Crane: No, Mikado said whoever TOOK the stone from Hayate would inherit the fortune. Destroying it means the stone was lost, period… which means that nobody ‘gains’ since the whole point of this was to have Hayate keep that stone for Nagi.

    @Hasselich: Maria will have you know that she is indeed still a fresh seventeen year old and will NOT have you thinking otherwise.

    I really miss the comedy this series used to provide. The drama just seems a lot more stilted to me. I don’t know how much of that has to do with the fact that the main heroine is like twelve, but that’s just my two cents.

    Should be about time for Hina to show up and do whatever it is she does.
