|Nice assist, Yukiji|
Isumi: then we leave the rest to you
Himegami: Hero of justice... huh? (ally of justice is
more accurate, but I like the FSN reference)
Hina: I've been listening but... you won't just hand over
the stone will you?
Himegami: Don't you get it? What had been planted is finally
Himegami: You refused my proposal that would make
everyone happy, didn't you? That's why Ayasaki's death
will be your fault as well.
Himegami: But honestly, I'm relieved that things turned
out so well.
Himegami: Nagi thought that Ayasaki was her lover for one
year, but that was a misunderstanding and it's finally
Himegami: This is the result of that despair, but it's
Himegami: She won't suffer anymore. Nagi has obtained
Himegami: As a reward for that, the sinner is also
judged. This is exactly what he deserves.
Hina: I don't know the exact circumstances but... I've
been watching. How can you say that this is what Hayate-
kun deserves for the past year?
Himegami: Hm? Ah, yes of course. You like Ayasaki-kun,
Aika: Sou yo!
Aika: That's why for the one she loves, Hina will defeat
Hina: W-wait! WTF are you sayin all of a sudden?
Hina: My feelings for Hayate-kun are a different matter altogether.
Aika: What you saying now? Everyone knows how much you like Ayasaki-kun!
Hina: Eeh!? Who is this everyone you're talking about!!
Aika: Well... whatever... the children are sleeping right now. Isn't it Santa's duty to deliver the presents?
Aika: So, whacha gonna do? You're afraid of heights aren't you?
Aika: He can freely dance in the sky. How will you fight without wings?
Isumi's grandma: Aim for his mask. that thing is his wing.
Isumi's grandma: As for that thing behind him, after you break it. Leave it to me.
Isumi's grandma: Well then flashy little girl. Isumi and I will help you out too.
Hina: On that day, it was here wasn't it? From this terrace...
Himegami: Well then, that's enough talking. I'mma destroy the wedge and end it all~
Hina: Ya think! I won't let ya!

Himegami: Oh fer cryin out loud. Why u tryin so hard?
Himegami: Even if you fight like this, that guy will never know.
Hina: That's right! Even if no one will know!
Himegami: If it's not for that guy, then why?
Hina: Aren't you the same?
Hina: Believing that a miracle will happen someday. Always, always thinking about it!!
Hina: But just thinking about a miracle, won't make it happen!
Hina: Eh? What's with that right hand...
Himegami: You're not the only one who thinks of herself as a hero of justice. This is from god --- my right hand.

Himegami: Won't happen!!
Hina catches bamboo sword and breaks Himegami's mask with it.
Mikado: that is...
Sakuya: SC Prez just kicked HImegami's ass.
A-tan: Isumi-san, you take care of the wedges. I'll go retrieve the king's jewel with Sakuya
Aika: Welcome back... how did it feel to fly in the sky?
Hina: Well... it was the best feeling ever.
A-tan: So, the king's jewel?
Sakuya: Pretty sure it fell on this side.
Sakuya: Eh? What is this!?
Hinagiku wins over Himegami. Also, what did Sakuya see? Don't miss the climax!
Review: Well, here we are 6 chapters before the ending and as expected, this was a Hina fanservice chapter giving Hina one last chance to shine before this manga concludes -- and shine she did.
You'll notice that she actually made use of the wooden masamune and a pretty innovative use of the Shirousakura. Too bad Himegami had to destroy masamune.
Anyway, Hina overcame her fear of heights here while overcoming Himegami. Also, Yukiji got to show off how awesome she is within just a few panels too. Good stuff.
Note on the powerlevels. Based on past feats, isumi and Athena should be stronger than Hina and more well-equipped to take him on. But it seems their powers were needed to maintain the wedges, so they couldn't concentrate on Himegami -- which is why Hina was perfect for the job.
Now Hina herself appeared to be of little threat to Himegami who was effortlessly dodging and parrying her attacks and even destroyed wooden Masamune -- that is until, Jedi Master Sister changed the tide. Really, that was more of a surprise attack more than anything else -- but it got the job done. It was sort of poetic justice too. Hina couldn't touch him with the mightier wooden masamune and ended up kicking his ass with an ordinary bamboo sword.
With that said, Himegami said a lot of interesting things in this chapter. Like that blatant callout to Hata's other manga using his right hand. Other than that, there's him repeatedly saying that Hayate deserves to die for his sins -- which I'm almost inclined to agree with, but let's give Ayasaki some time to redeem himself. He's KO'd for now after all. Nagi reflection chapter WHEN!?
Anywayz, that's that. See ya next week. Fanart time~
Fanart Corner: Yah, had quite a lot of time to do fanart this week to make up for last week so yay~
