Anywayz, dream Maria tells him that things can never go back to the way they were no matter who helps him anyway. She gives him the letter that Nagi never opened and then tells him to give her a wallet as a birthday present -- a really expensive one and that she'll find him no matter where he goes just to get said wallet.
Hayate thanks her and rushes off to where Nagi is.
They have a conversation wherein Hayate first makes her a crown of flowers and then he finally tells Nagi about the circumstances behind the misunderstanding. Hayate is all calm while Nagi gets really angry. She tells him that this illusion is better and that even Hayate can make a wish because he has a stone too. He says that ok, he'd make a wish that would make him happy.
|Mai waifu was extremely beautiful this chapter.|
His wish is to undo Nagi's wish. He gives her Maria's letter, which is actually the picture of the three of them from chapter 177, I think. On the back of the picture are the words: "eternity is here." He then tells her that even though it was all a misunderstanding, the days they spent together, the feelings they experienced in that one year was not all a misunderstanding so she shouldn't replace them with an illusion. He then points at the king's jewel which he hid in her crown of flowers and asks her if she's ready to go home.
Nagi agrees but they only have one king's jewel -- which Hayate was well-aware of. Isumi snatches Nagi away to safety but Hayate is left behind smiling. He remarks that he has no regrets because in the end, he was able to protect Nagi. The chapter ends there.
You'll notice that there's no transcript this time... well, that's coz the spoilers had just about everything and I just scanlated everything here ya go: http://www.mediafire.com/file/b1y7bcqb18473bc/566+spoilers.zip
Wait for DKThias scanlations for professional quality and accuracy... they should be out soon together with 565 anyway, I think... but if you can't wait... have fun~
Review: You know, prior to reading the full chapter, I'd written a few paragraphs on why Maria can't win... but this chapter just did a better job at that than I ever could. Karma for the 4chan trolls/pseudo Maria shippers who are probably just bitter coz their actual ships already sunk. Who's Hayate's savior again?
Anyway, I only have a few things to say about this chapter:
On Hayate's Wish
Hayate took back Nagi's wish with his own. Basically, he's saying that his happiness is taking Nagi away from her dream world where there is a dream Hayate who loves her romantically -- why? Is he saying that his so-called "platonic love" for her is better than the romantic love that dream Hayate can give her? Well, whatever... we don't know the full answer to this yet. He can't plan on living on together with her as her butler in a sibling-type relationship -- that's for sure.
What a Wonderful World
I don't think Hata chose this specific title for the Finale just because it's a nice song.
Remember that young Hayate couldn't save young Athena 10 years ago -- that scenario was called "End of the World."
However, stronger, more mature Hayate was here for Nagi -- a girl who was put in a similar situation to Athena. Truly, it's "What A Wonderful World."
What I Didn't Like
Well, the one thing I didn't like was how Hayate managed to convince Nagi to come back home with him while still not being definite about what he really feels for her. I mean, so what if they had spent those days together and it wasn't a lie? What does that imply for the future? Nothing... we don't know. Sigh... oh well, let us be patient and see what happens next. 2 chapters to go. See ya next week.
Sorry, no fanart for this week. I do have one that I wanna show you... but I'm saving it for the finale.
