|A-tan, you ******* schemer!|
|Oh noez! It's a ghost!|
|Shaddup, Ghost. Hayate's fed up with your antics|
The ghost calls in a small group of other ghosts who finally inform them that the spice is a pirate treasure buried somewhere on the island. Hayate suddenly spouts an epic line that would have been inspiring in another context... but whatever, the ghosts are inspired by it anyway and one of them even aspires to be a doctor... even if he's dead.
|This! Is a shipteasing moment|
|This too is shipteasing|
|As they say in Dune: THE SPICE!|
|This would have been epic in another context|
- Hisui Hatsushiba and her maid
- Mikado Sanzen'in
Other than that, plenty of Hina x Hayate shipteasing moments here. Hayate also re-confirms that he finds Hinagiku to be a reliable partner at the end of this chapter.
Over-all, a pretty good chapter with a little bit of something for everyone. The boxed curry joke was a bit predictable considering Hata's style of humor, but I still chuckled a bit when it actually happened.
I'm also glad that this "murder island" chapter is finally over and done with this chapter, which signifies that the plot is moving forward at a steady pace. Looks like Hata isn't quite ready to reveal whatever master plan Athena has hatched just yet. Well... y'know, maybe she should just marry Mikado... whatever, peoplez. whatever.
Speculation Corner: Ok, nothing to speculate about just yet. Can't say much as to who will win the bet between Ikusa and Hayate since not enough has been revealed. Also have no idea where those shipteasing moments between Hayate and Hina are headed except maybe those "baby steps" mentioned by a certain Hina x Hayate shipper.
Therefore, for this week's speculation corner, I leave you with this:
