|Chiharu looks hawt with the new design|
|Maria: Maid sense tingling!|
While in Akihabara, they bump into Hayate who's presumably just left from Wataru's store in his quest to find Konoha a job. Chiharu turns her back and tries to hide her face because she's sure that Hayate would recognize her now... but he doesn't!
He notes that it's been a long time since he last saw Sakuya's maid, Haru-san and that the new outfit suits her well and makes her look really cute. He then mentions "Chiharu-san," but he was actually looking at some fugly person with glasses. Chiharu is a bit frustrated to find out that Hayate only sees her as a person with glasses.
|Are you effin blind, Ayasaki!?|
Review: Haha! The best part of this chapter for me was how Chiharu suddenly bumps into Ayumu -- who, in her usual straightforward manner just asks her outright what she's doing in a maid outfit.
|She kinda looks like Hayate here|
As far as this chapter is concerned though, apart from reintroducing us to Sakuya, who hasn't made an appearance in this manga since forever, it feels as if Hata's dragging this Makise Konoha arc out again.
|Best part of this chapter|
As a side-note, I take back what I said previously. Chiharu has now dethroned Aika as the sexiest girl in the Hayate-verse.
Also, you might remember that in the last episode of Cuties, Hayate calls Chiharu while she's working at Sakuya's place and he seems to implicitly know that she's also "haru-san."
Fanart Corner: Well, it's the same fanart from the previous post. No explanations necessary, I suppose. Oh, and take note of her hand, by the way.
