Hayate: As expected, this kid doesn't hesitate... this person...
Hisui: shyaaaa 0_0!
|Hayate looks all cool here... just before he gets beat up|
Hayate: This is really dangerous ain't it? These blades?
Hisui: So what? This is a life and death struggle, isn't it?
Hisui: You've gotta be prepared to put your life on the line if you stand against me.
Hayate: Kaa! (lol! good job, hi-chan)
Hayate: You've gotta be kidding me. How is this kid moving like this?
Hayate: b-but if you kill me then you'll never know where I hid the stone, right?
Hisui: My friggin huge snake eyeballs can see that you hid it in your right pocket.
Hisui: You dun get, do ya?
Hisui: I knew everything from the start.
Hayate: F-from the start?
Hisui: All your efforts were for nothing. I knew from the start. I knew from the start.
Hisui: I can see everything from the start.
Hayate: This kid is friggin stro...
Hisui: Now, now... pass me dat stone.
Housen: Ah, Hisui Hisui... as expected, you're really the best eh?
Housen: fascinating ain't it?
Housen: Seems it'll take a while, so time to take out the trash eh?
Housen: Well then, by your leave.
Athena: Go easy on me huh?
Voice: Well then, good
Isumi: Nice, a direct hit.
Isumi: Ya ok?
Isumi: Oh, and here's machina's dirty clothes
Athena: OMFG NO THX!
Athena: Also, over there.
Housen: Now I'm mad.
Housen: That was quite a surprise attack, Saginomiya Isumi
Isumi: I am honored by your kind words, princess... now then... please turn back to gold, King Midas' Daughter.
Hayate: wtf was that?
Hisui: Hahaha! This has really turned into the last battle!
Hayate: Stop saying that! We need to get out of here!
Hayate: Aren't you afraid of anything?
Hisui: If you're afraid of such a thing, then you'll never be like the king.
Hayate: The king?
Hisui: Yes, someone as empty as you could never appreciate it.
|Where did he pick up another sword from anyway?|
Hisui: Someone with no desires who lives as wrongly as you!
Hisui: Wishes make people stronger! Hopes shape the future!
Hisui: This power is the shape of my wish!
Hisui: So know this... I am the chosen one!
Hayate: In this situation, the fight won't stop.
Hayate: If that's the case...
Hayate: This is game over, isn't it?
Hisui: That hurts... this thing is not what a king fears
Athena: Fudge... you're not gonna hold back, are you?
Athena: If this keeps up, the mansion will really collapse
Isumi: You're pretty strong, huh?
Housen: Nah, not really
HOusen: However, Tennousu Athena is recovering quickly. At this rate, our lose is inevitable. Also wtf is... (looks at Hisui)
|Good job, Hi-chan!|
Housen: She can't beat Hayate Ayasaki.
Housen: If we can't beat him, we can't get the stone. Then... I have no choice
Housen: Hello, this is Housen.
Review: Gotta be honest, I was cheering for Hisui all the way during this chapter -- and she certainly delivered. I like how she beat Hayate up both physically and emotionally. It seems the emotional blow didn't quite get to him yet, but I'm sure he'll start thinking about what she said pretty soon.
|Isumi: Can I have my revenge match now?|
I'm also glad to see that Hisui is super competent in combat -- which would explain her bravado in the previous chapter. Unfortunately, as Housen pointed out, she can only fight Hayate to a standstill. It seems she can't beat him. Housen herself admits to being at a disadvantage against Isumi and a quickly recovering Athena... because somehow, Isumi will win... lol!
Anyway, Isumi casually confirmed that Housen is indeed Midas' daughter. I'm sure Hata will explain that away at some point.
While it was nice to see Isumi finally get her revenge match, the highlight of this chapter was really Hisui (again) being effin crazy and actually talking more sense than Hayate -- who was once again his passive, wishy-washy self this entire chapter. Gotta tell ya (again), I enjoyed watching Hisui beat him up and I hope there's more to come.
I have exactly one guess as to who Housen is calling up: Princess God.
Ok, really exciting chapter, but not much to discuss... yet. This is really shaping up to be the final arc alrighty, but there's still a lot left to be resolved. I also feel that both Housen and Hisui will turn out to be not so bad once everything is over.
|As a side note, vol. 49 of Hayate is out. Imma buyin it coz mai waifu is in it... even if she's not the cover girl this time. That honor goes to Maria. Go buy eet and support Hata if ya can!|
By the way, Doughnut Gunso has mentioned that Hisui is not a "flat character" -- I beg to disagree... her chest is flatter than Nagi's...lol!
Anyway, no break next week so see you then!
Fanart Corner: I have one today. It's actually an old sketch that I've finally had time to digitally color recently.
|Mai waifu is so tsundere here|
