Hayate no Gotoku – volume 21

Blogged by on Wednesday October 28th, 2009 at 3:46 pm in English, Hayate no Gotoku, Manga (spoilers) | 5 Comments »

New Hayate no Gotoku KITAAAAAAAAAA !!!

Do I ever have to mention again that HnG is the manga I’m most looking forward to everytimes ?

hayate21_0000

And the nice thing is that this book kept all its promises (yeah, Hyakko #5… orz). I could even say that it was one of the best books of the serie so far. The plot is moving rather slowly (well good thing I would say, don’t want it to end XD), but it gets a well-balanced amount of everything that makes HnG so awesome : romance, lulz, and combat butler action (when did the later one happen for the last time, I wonder ? XD ).

Time for random scans, intense Hina-san goodness incoming.

hayate21_0001
It’s me or Hamzawa-san looks hotter than usual ?

hayate21_0002
Izumi seems to somewhat remember that Hayate was the boy she kissed when she was younger. GO GO IZUMI ENDING !!!
… well a harem ending is fine too (Seitokai no Ichizon~ XD )

hayate21_0003
Wataru gets from his mother one of the mysterious stones that Hayate and Aika-san also own, and that’s the starting point of a turn of events that will make HnG going back into combat butler mode (kinda).

hayate21_0004
Hina feels down and starts to reconsider her whole ‘I’m waiting Hayate to confess to me’ attitude, when Hayate suddenly shows up…
Hayate : “Hinagiku-san… Isn’t there anything you want to confess to me ?”
XD

hayate21_0005
Continue to insist, Hayate ! Hinagiku is about to have an orgasm just with that. XD

hayate21_0006
awww Delicious Miki was on the wrong side of the page… orz
Still, <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate21_0007
Mikado has changed the rule regarding the Sanzen’in inheritance : now the one who takes the stone from Hayate will get the inheritance. And some old chars are back for giving it a try XD

hayate21_0008
After having his ass owned many times in a few seconds, Gilbert decides to challenge Hayate to a 2 vs 2 beach-volley match, and choses Hinagiku as Hayate’s partner, thinking that she’s the frailest from the crew… AMAI ZO, Gilbert-kun ! Don’t judge a girl by her breasts size, you fool.
Miki : “WHERE’S YOUR SWIMSUIT !!”
XD

hayate21_0009
Because of a certain event from the previous volume, Hina believes that Hayate luvs fragile girls… and decides to act as one by losing on purpose… Kimoi~ XD (< watch/read Kannagi if you don’t get this)

hayate21_0010
But after that this Gilbert jerk made fun of Hina’s cute DFC, she turns back into the Hina-san we love~

hayate21_0011
But…
Gilbert : “There was a serious rule violation during this game : GIRLS MUST PLAY WITH SWIMSUIT!”
Miki’s reaction XD

hayate21_0012
But Hina’s hatred of losing is stronger than everything~
POWER OF DF-… errr FLOWER !!!

hayate21_0013
Hayate got his ass kicked again after saying how Hina shouldn’t strip like that…
Ha : “Yeah, that’s not my business indeed, but I’m worried because of your lack of self-consciousness”
Hi : “Self-conciousness ? about what ?”
Ha : “Well, about the fact that you’re a cute girl…”

hayate21_0014
Right :
Hina : “(I’m so happy I can’t turn my face back to normal… !! ///////////////////////////)”
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Left : trying her best at making a normal face…
lol awesome face XD
Hina-san~ <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate21_0015
It had to end with some hawt service~
… and someone to interfere XD

hayate21_0016
Following Aika-san’s advice (the love master XD ), Hayate uses all the money he earned from his baito for inviting Hinagiku to a super-expensive restaurant, making this our incoming lovely Hina moment of the next volume~

hayate21_0017
OMG AWESOME SISTER IS BACK
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate21_0018
And she’s here for the stone of course~
Man I almost forgot that Hayate was a COMBAT butler XD
From what she’s saying, it’s by trying to steal this stone that Himegami (Nagi’s former butler) got fired.

hayate21_0019
And Sister Sonia knows the perfect technique to use against a ‘Too Pure Pure Boy’ such as Hayate : she strips XD
<3 <3 <3 <3

hayate21_0020
Sonia <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
I luv that fighting pose with the /////// all over her face XD <3

hayate21_0021
But finally, Sonia does manage to steal the stone, and Hayate breaks…

hayate21_0022
But thanks to Ayumu’s lovely smile, Hayate gets a grip of himself~
Hamzawa-san <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate21_0023
Warning : ‘Ayumu is one of the cutest things ever made’ moment.
Ayumu : “B- betsu ni horechattemo, ii n’da ze~” (You can fall in love with me, that’s no problem !)
HORECHATTA <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Hamzawa-san rapidly got one step forward Hinagiku again.

hayate21_0024
A pic of 17 years-old Nagi-mama wearing swimsuit, found by Nagi in the pocket of Klaus’ jacket…
hawt~

hayate21_0025
Hina-san will have the opportunity to get again one step forward Ayumu in next volume with that ‘restaurant event’. Not mentionning that she seems to be ready to put her pride aside and to confess to Hayate sometime. But I get the feeling that Athena won’t let this happen…

hayate21_0026
There is no HnG book without loli Maria-san service ! XD

Next book is released ‘this winter’, without any more details… WANT MOAR HAYATE NOW Q_Q

Hayate no gotoku #20

Blogged by on Saturday July 25th, 2009 at 5:36 pm in English, Hayate no Gotoku, Manga (spoilers) | 0 Comments »

Been a long time without manga posts.

And joy on earth, though I’ve almost forgotten about it, the newest Hayate volume got released in japan last week. Got released here yesterday, and immediately gave it a read because HAYATE CAN’T WAIT.

hayate20_0001
This cover is HAWT (Hamzawa-san).

And since every new Hayate release is a major event to me, here is the obligatory random scans post. Well, compared to previous Hayate posts, I don’t really have that much to post this time. Actually, somewhat like the previous volume, this book was a ‘transition’ volume. The ‘Wataru-mama arc’ ended, and the rest of the book is about the crew getting ready and gathering in Greece for what will probably be the most important arc of the manga and which would probably starts in next volume (I’m just hoping that this arc won’t be the last one orz).

One particular thing I want to say though :

Izumi is the one for Hayata-kun.

My love for Izumi grew a bit again after reading this book. Well, since I’m all for a Ayu x Hina pairing and that Sakuya’s chances for getting Hayate are near from 0%, I’m now totally rooting for a Hayate x Izumi ending. Ok, it gets like 1% of chance to happen but still… Izumi is MAI ENJE~RU.

Ok, time to deliver some <3s.

hayate20_0002
Wataru-mama : “Long ago, there was a person who was loved even by God. I really loved that person. You can call it ‘adoration’ too. But one day, this person got married with somebody else. It was a huge shock to me.”

At first, I thought that Wataru-mama was gay for Nagi-mama because of the flashback pic. But now that I think of it, since she doesn’t mention any name, it is also possible that she was in love with the guy Nagi-mama got married with. As for why the guy looks like Hayate… well, let’s not think too deeply about it, and just guess that it means that Nagi-mama was in love with her butler. Probably not Hayate’s big bro, or else it would make Hayate to be Nagi’s uncle XD

hayate20_0003
Nagi’s dreams are becoming more and more perverted ._.
/////

hayate20_0004
I like seeing Miki and Risa supporting Izumi’s love for Hayata-kun. Well, they mostly pick on her, and I guess that Miki would be glad to see Hayate out of the picture and not interfering with her yuri love for Hinagiku. XD But still, that’s lovely.
And Izumi’s reactions hit me with intense moe every times <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate20_0005
Everybody loves Red-chan <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate20_0006
Little devil Izumi.
DAMN HAWT <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Man she surprisingly gets some nice boobage, I’m in love <3 <3 <3

hayate20_0007
XD
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate20_0008
After Hina-san, it’s Nagi’s turn to be turned gay by Hamzawa-san’s lovely smile <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate20_0009
Hamzawa-san too finally gets her ‘snow-white’ scene. I guess it make her being a step forward Hinagiku. Well, on a side note, I get the feeling that Hina’s chances for getting Hayate are dropping down badly. Firstly because of her ‘I hate to lose so I’m waiting Hayate to confess to me instead of confessing to him’ attitude, and secondly, as Hamzawa-san said in this volume, Hinagiku is just too great for Hayate XD
… That saddens me a bit though…

hayate20_0010
Preview of the next volume, released in October.
Miki looks DELICIOUS.

hayate20_0011
And finally, back of the book.
Nagi-mama is <3

That’s all for this time. Well this book contains way more goodness, but I don’t want to kill your fun so go check it.

On a side note, I’m still watching the anime version. That’s the exact adaptation of the manga, so no surprises but very enjoyable, I’m totally satisfied with this show. It’s a gallery of cute faces. Made some screenies, I think I’ll make a post about it later.

Hayate no Gotoku #19

Blogged by on Saturday May 2nd, 2009 at 8:29 pm in Anime (spoilers), English, Hayate no Gotoku, Manga (spoilers) | 0 Comments »

Been 2 weeks already that the new volume of Hayate no Gotoku got released, and have read it last week so it’s time for deh random scans.

hayate19_cover1 hayate19_cover2
Front cover : it’s only later when I took the book from my bag for reading it that I noticed that something awesome was actually happening in the background. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 (ry
Back cover : yay new characters~

Actually I haven’t scanned that much from it, because this volume was some ‘transition’ volume. Means, it was filled with random stories which ain’t related to the Mykonos Island arc and the whole End Of The World stuff. Though, it seems it gets back into the seriousness again in the next volume (that what the author said in the atogaki).

But anyway, one would say that HnG is the best when it gets its usual love and crazyness so you may say it was a quite enjoyable volume. Well don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it very much too. But yeah I’m such a sucker for drama… sorry orz

Ok, random scans posting starts here~

hayate19_0001
First chapter was Miki chapter (<3)
Even tho it wasn’t really necessary, she kinda did her ‘coming-out’ :o
Miki and Hayate are spying on Makimura-sensei for making some good vid, and actually witness her being confessed by some random student.
Hayate says they should give up on the idea of filming the scene, but Miki doesn’t really want to miss the chance to get such a nice shot.
Hayate : “But a teacher and a student, it’s forbidden love !”
Miki : “Then what ? Even if it’s forbidden love, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s love ! ///”
w00t Miki for being the official yurikko of HnG

hayate19_0003
Nice cup~ (want).

hayate19_0003a hayate19_0003b
Left : It’s been some kind of new rule, but a HnG volume can’t be complete with some loli Maria-san appearance. XD
Right : ‘Adult’ Maria-san is fine too (HAWT).

hayate19_0004
Oyaji Nagi~ XD
<3 <3 <3
Oyajikko are the new trend in manga/anime… for my greatest pleasure~

hayate19_0005
… But it’s the so beautiful Aika-san who finally gets hit by the water~

hayate19_0007 hayate19_0006
AIKA-SAN SAABISU KITA !!! (insert tons of <3s here)
I happened to know recently that it’s Emiri Katou (Kagami from Lucky Star) who’s voicing the HnG #1 beauty in the anime… I SO HAVE TO HEAR THAT

hayate19_0008
Aika-san asked Hayate to get her some new pantsu, but finally leaves before he came back.
Maria : “Ah, you’re already leaving ?”
Aika : “Yes, I feel a bit chilly but it’s ok, I called out the car”
N- No-pan Aika-san ////;;;

hayate19_0009
While Hayate and the rest of the crew are preparing their trip to Mykonos Island for deh great teary reunion with Athena-chan, Saki, Wataru and Saku are enjoying a little trip to Las Vegas.
Why do I feel relieved when seeing Wataru being all deredere for Saki ?

hayate19_0010
half-awake Saki = <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate19_0012
And that’s when the new characters finally appear :
Mikoto, aka Wataru-mama (hawt), and her lolicon butler Ichijou-kun.

hayate19_0013
Oh.
My.
God.

hayate19_0014
Drunk Saki <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate19_0015
Saki is incarnation of love.
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Honestly, Wataru rules for having all these onee-san who want him so bad (Saki, Sister, Aika…)
WATARU THE TRUE MALE LEAD OF HAYATE NO GOTOKU

hayate19_0016
Last panel : DEH AWESOME REFERENCE
rofl’d

hayate19_0017
Bunny girl Saku + a couple of random cute blushing face.
I wub how she’s hitting Wataru’s head with her bunny ears XD
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

And so, this volume ends at the climax of that Wataru/Wataru-mama ‘interlude arc’. Well, not so much to say about it, just that it’s refreashing to see Wataru as the male lead. I have a lot of sympathy for him. And w00t for the Saki and Saku saabisu~

Now hafta wait until mid-June for moar Hayate goodness.

===

Though I can’t really get anime anymore, I could manage to get the first episodes (1 to 4) of the second season of the Hayate no Gotoku anime (there was no way I could miss that).

I was pretty surprised to see that this season starts with the content of the 6th volume of the manga. I mean, I could only watch the first half of the first season, which was 52 episodes long. So I wonder what the hell did they put in the second half of the show cause it sure doesn’t take 52 episodes for animating 5 volumes. ^^;

But well, who cares~. I SO HAVE WAITED FOR THIS SECOND SEASON.

snapshot20090418002629
I like the OP, this part in particular <3
Actually, the more I’m watching it, the more I wish for some Blue x Red to happen. Because of the manga I’ve been thinking that Hamzawa-san and Hina should be together forever, but I wish for Miki to find happiness too – she’s one of my favs – and Red-chan is most likely the one that would bring it to her. Well, she likes being picked on and Blue likes to pick on people XD

snapshot20090417232731 snapshot20090417232747
Oh man it started with the marathon thing and that cute Hina x Miki scene <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
My only complaint is that this ‘arc’ was only 1 episode long.

snapshot20090418003210
Second episode, and it already gets the awesome Sister <3

snapshot20090418003612
… and that’s when I notice that she’s Yui Horie.
YUI-CHAN ? IN MY HAYATE NO GOTOKU ?
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

1240129780888
H-I-N-A HINAGIKU !

snapshot20090421234438 snapshot20090421234455
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 (ry
WATARU YOU’RE MY HERO
Again, I’ve been a bit disappointed to see that this whole ‘Shitsuji Tora no Ana’ arc was only 2 episodes long in the anime. They skipped all the part when Hayate becomes Hamzawa-san’s butler for one day :/ (it had a reference to it tho)

snapshot20090428230358
Awesome reaction <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
The 4th episode is my favorite episode so far. I liked the fact that now it goes ‘1 chapter = 1 episode’ (somewhat), making this episode well-paced and very enjoyable~

snapshot20090428231328
AND THAT’S WHEN THE AWESOMENESS BEGINS
The starting point of the whole HHH thing, or when HnG becomes ultimate love & epicness.

snapshot20090428232329
“kuishinbou da na~ ! sasuga Maria-san !” XD
Maria-san ftw <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I’m getting pretty excited to see that my favorite moments from the manga are getting animated one after another… I just can’t wait for moar.

===

Let’s conclude this post with my ‘will never happen but I wish it happens‘ who-will-end-up-with-who list~

Hayate x Sakuya
Nagi x Wataru or Isumi
Hinagiku x Ayumu
Miki x Izumi

Sorry, Maria-san orz

THE END OF THE WORLD (2)

Blogged by on Friday January 30th, 2009 at 6:34 pm in English, Hayate no Gotoku, Manga (spoilers) | 1 Comment »

As promised, here is some random scans from the latest volume of Hayate no Gotoku (volume 18) and the final part of ‘THE END OF THE WORLD’, which was as expected tears, regrets, and tears (see this post for the first part). ;_;

hayate1801
Hayate, convinced that he made his parents change after his serious speech, accepts that his father puts in a ‘safe place’ the ring he got from Aa-tan…

hayate1802
Athena breaks after seeing in the mirror that Hayate gave the ring to his parents (man I wish them to die from an horrible death), and suddenly attacks Hayate while insulting his parents.

hayate1803
Hayate : “What the deal with you !! That’s because you don’t have parents that you’re saying all these horrible things… !!”
And that is when the world came to an end.

hayate1804
Hayate’s voice can’t reach Aa-tan anymore and she definitely gets serious at him. “DON’T CALL ME BY THAT NAME ANYMORE !”

hayate1805
They end up neutralizing each others.

hayate1806
“GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE !”

hayate1807
Athena comes to her senses, but too late…
“That’s not it, Hayate. I didn’t want to talk about this. But, you see ? It was the precious ring I gave you, you see ? You were smiling, watching them unscrupulously selling this ring… It made me really angry you know ? But well it can’t be helped, you’re an idiot so these parents could easily coax you. But you see, if you stay with these parents, you will never be happy. So, I was thinking that I had to protect you… So, that’s not it, Hayate… Me too… I want to stay with you… forever…”

“Again… I’m here all alone again… Hayate… please… please say my name again, Hayate…”
Aa-tan T_T

hayate1808
Hayate gets some comfort from his onii-san, the only member of his family whom he can count on.
“Once the rain stops falling, go apologize to her properly, ok ?”
But when Hayate goes back to Athena’s place, the forest in which there was the castle is gone, the land having been bought by Mikado Sanzen’in for builting the Hakuoh High School. After that, they never met again…

hayate1809
But somewhere in Greece, a strange blonde ojou-sama is thinking about making her way to Japan… and what a coincidence, the whole cast is about to go to Greece for the Golden Week XD
Anyway, w00t Athena, and more seriousness to come in the future~

hayate1800
After that, we’re getting
the good ol’Hayate awesomeness again <3 <3 <3
I said it before, but joshikousei Yukiji : DEH LOVE <3 <3 <3 <3
what the hell happened, Yukiji ? XD

hayate1810
Maria-san, who didn’t appear for 10+ chapters straight, needed to get rid of her stress XD
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate1811
Hayate is aimed by a yandere, and that’s the starting point of some lovely Maria chapters <3 <3 <3 <3
lol Yuko Goto reference~

hayate1812
Posting this just because Aika-san is DEH LOVE. <3 <3 <3
Ever since I saw her the first time, I loved her design. I think she’s in the 3 cutest characters in HnG. Hitomebore~
I hope she will get more appearance…

hayate1813
Need moar Izumi too <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate1814
Lucky Star ? in my Hayate no Gotoku ? XD

hayate1815
omg Risa route XD
Konami, I hope honestly that you’re working on a new HnG game… A HnG gyaruge is seriously needed, dudes.

Next volume is released in April… orz

THE END OF THE WORLD

Blogged by on Saturday January 3rd, 2009 at 7:03 pm in English, Hayate no Gotoku, Manga (spoilers) | 0 Comments »

And here comes the random scans from the 17th volume of the Hayate no Gotoku manga, which was mostly about Hayate’s past, and how he met with his childhood girlfriend Athena-chan (who has been mentionned occasionally since the 9th volume). No need to mention that if you hate major spoilers, don’t scroll down.

COPYPASTA MODE ON !

hayate1701
After losing the last bit of love and respect he had for his father, Hayate’s mind goes blank and he starts running aimlessly until he collapses in a huge garden. And the boy meets the girl…

hayate1702
And the girl’s name is Athena Tennousu. Scary eyes o_o;

From a previous HnG post :

dscn0216
Hayate and Athena (Aa-tan), his childhood girlfriend.
WHERE DID I SEE THAT FACE BEFORE ?

Finally the pic on the back cover was totally misleading, and I must say I was nicely surprised that in fact Athena isn’t Maria. Hehe you got me Hata-sensei XD

hayate1703
She lives in CastleVania. :o

hayate1704
Athena, feeling that Hayate lost his will of live, asks him if he wants to be her butler.

hayate1705
Hayate suddenly starts calling Athena “Aa-tan”.
A : “What’s the deal with that Aa-tan thing ?”
H : “Eh ? That’s your nickname ! Athena, in short ‘Aa-tan'”
A : “Why does the number of characters raises
when you make it short ?!”
A : “But it’s ok, if you become my butler I will forgive you”
Lovely smile~ <3

hayate1706
Kisu~
Their ahoge connect when kissing. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Also, Athena is quite precocious. :o

hayate1707
Aww they just met but slept together while holding hands.

hayate1708
Athena asks for a morning kiss, but Hayate
doesn’t really get the message…
Hayate : “Does your head hurt ?”
Athena : “That’s not it ! W- Well… I gave you
a lot (of kiss) yesterday, didn’t I ?”
Dekkai hazukashii serifu~
Even I was embarrased when reading that. XD

hayate1709
Kisu~
Wow they’re living just like a cute little couple.
And here starts “Hayate the mini combat-butler” XD

hayate1710
At first, Hayate fails at work…

hayate1711
Athena -who just came out
from the bath
- : “Put off some of your clothes”
Hayate : “… HA ? ///” XD
Athena decides to make him an efficiant butler by giving him the incredibly strong body he has now.

hayate1712
A couple of pages later, Hayate loses his way in the huge castle and ends up in a place that he should had not have entered…

hayate1713
Right page : scary ._.
Thankfully Athena rapidly comes to her senses, and tells Hayate that she will show him something more interesting…

hayate1714
Athena shows to Hayate a magic mirror which has the power to show people the viewer knows. Since Maria is appearing, does it mean that Athena met Maria-san before ? Or is it just because the author felt again like drawing loli Maria just like on the back cover ? XD

hayate1715
Athena is angry at Hayate cause he said the girl in the mirror was super cute~ XD
She’s such a tsundere :)

hayate1716
H : “Because I… love you… Aa-tan…”
A : “… I can’t hear you… with this voice…”
H : “Eh ?”
A : “I can’t hear you with such a low voice ! If you want to say my name, then say it louder ! From here ! So that you can hear it throughout the world !”
H : “AA-TAN !”
A : “… L-… Louder !”
H : “AA-TAN !!!”
H : (I wonder how many times I have shouted)
<3 <3 <3

hayate1717
You really don’t want their happy little days to end, but…

hayate1718
Athena teachs swordsmanship to Hayate.

hayate1719
A : “One day, you too will be able to use this sword.”

hayate1720
Kisu~
Damn, they’re cute XD

hayate1721
Even if Hayate doesn’t care about his father anymore, he starts missing his mother.

hayate1722
Athena tells Hayate how to go out from the castle, but makes him promise to come back immediately after seeing his mother. <3 <3 <3

hayate1723
Once outside the castle, Hayate suddenly meets… loli Izumi ! :o

hayate1724
Thanks to the power he got from Athena, Hayate kicks the dog who was menacing Izumi away.

hayate1725
Izumi : “Since you saved me, let me give you something
in return~ <3″

hayate1726
Kisu~
haha, what a girl magnet XD
Izumi : “See you later, Hayata-kun~”
Finally Hayate doesn’t get the chance to see his mother and goes back to the castle…

hayate1727
They don’t sleep while holding hands because she saw Hayate being kissed thanks to the mirror XD
Left page : <3 <3 <3

hayate1728
H : “Don’t you want to live with me outside the castle ?”
omg deh cuteness <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate1729
Athena doesn’t understand why Hayate wants to go back living at his parents’ house, and Hayate tells her that he thinks he can make them change like he changed himself.

hayate1730
After that Athena refused to go live outside the castle with him, Hayate once again leaves the castle and walk aimlessly in the streets, until he meets again with Izumi. He tells her his problems with Athena, and Izumi suggests that he should make her a present for making up.

hayate1731
And that’s how Hayate began to work for money~

hayate1732
Athena gives him a ring in return.
I wonder where is that ring now… :o

hayate1733
Hayate leaves again the castle for telling his parents about Athena, and here ends this volume. OMG TEASER !

hayate1734
In the omake manga, Nagi asks the cast about faults they made in the past.
Hinagiku : “Long ago when I was a child,
Okaa-san was… Oka-… T_T ”
Maybe a hint that next volume will have a large part
about Hinagiku’s past ?

Next volume is released in two weeks in Japan.

hayate1735

MANY TEARS WILL BE SHED.

Hayate no Gotoku 14~16

Blogged by on Friday December 26th, 2008 at 6:22 pm in English, Hayate no Gotoku, Manga (spoilers) | 0 Comments »

Been a while I didn’t post some HnG scans and write something in english, so in-before a post about the epic 17h volume that I just have read, here comes random scans for the 14th, 15th and 16th volumes~

– Volume 14

from the previous HnG post :

From the preview of the next volume, it seems that the next extreme love & piece event will be… SAKUYA EVENT !!!

hayate1401
Heh, the preview was finally pretty misleading, cause it was only showing the panel in which she’s saying “but I really like that part of you”… Well, rather, I so wanted to see some Hayate x Sakuya to happen that I didn’t think a single second that this line would be aimed at somebody else orz

No need to mention that I don’t really approve this turn of events (I feel like it’s an easy way for Hata-sensei to get ‘rid’ of 2 side-characters from the love equation), but well I have to respect the author’s choice… In fact it was just a ‘minor event’ which apparantly didn’t have any consequences on their relationship in the end, but still I have to consider Saku x Wataru to be a possible pairing now… :/

hayate1402
In that scene, Hayate casually reveals that he has an older brother, and that there is a quite large age difference between the two of them.

Well… Guessing Hata-sensei’s way of thinking and considering the “Maria-san is Hayate’s childhood girlfriend” thing, my 25 cents that Hayate’s onii-san is Nagi’s former butler (what was his name again… Himegami ?). On a side note, this scene also reveals that Sakuya always wanted a big brother (one other than Gilbert. XD ), or more exactly that she always wanted to say ‘onii-chan’. XD Bro-con Saku moe~

hayate1403
Again, there was a large part of Ayu & Hina being buddy-buddy <3
Hehe this kind of scenes has always reminded me of FFVII (Yuffie~ <3)

hayate1406 hayate1405 hayate1404
Haha, Wataru is getting his own harem too~ XD
After Saki, Sister, Nagi (?), and Sakuya, he now gets his hand on the very cute Aika-san <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate1407
Moar Wataru x Aika-san
I really found Aika-san to be one of the cutest girls in HnG <3

hayate1408
Tsundere Maria-san XD

hayate1409
“When I was on my way searching for Ojou-sama… How could it have turned into such a tragedy ?!”
Rather than tragedy I would say BEST ENDING EVAR

– Volume 15

hayate1502
Now that Hayate and his harem are second-year students,
cute kouhai appear~
Fumi-chan, super cute and super baka <3 <3 <3

hayate1503
This volume contained a chapter about Maria’s days as Hakuoh’s seitokaichou.
Loli Maria-san saabisu~ o_o

– Volume 16

hayate1601
Kaoru-sensei chapter.
Joshikousei Yukiji : OMG DEH CUTENESS <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate1602
When Saku runs away from home, she goes to see Hayate
instead of Nagi. <3
First panel : <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate1603
The second half of the book was all about Izumi,
and it was all greatness.
Izumi is deh love <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Damn that is even worse than School Rumble… Hinagiku, Ayumu, Sakuya or Izumi ??? I definitely can’t choose the one who must get the happy end :/

See ya for next volume, about Hayate’s past and the end of the world…

Hayate no Gotoku 11~13

Blogged by on Monday November 17th, 2008 at 5:35 pm in English, Hayate no Gotoku, Manga (spoilers) | 0 Comments »

(le post précedent était le 50ème, w00t~)

Time for some HnG goodness again, and these three volumes were sure full of it.

Hayate volume 11 = DAI SAABISU~ !

hayate1101
Hamzawa-san <3

hayate1102
Isumi °_°
<3 <3 <3

hayate1103
SAKU ! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

hayate1104
Iinchou-san <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
moar Red-chan plz.

hayate1105
Isumi-mama, quite a milf. <3 <3 <3

But this volume wasn’t all about skin-showing, it also had one quite love & piece Hamzawa-san scene, answering to volume 10’s Hinagiku extreme love & piece moment.

hayate1108 hayate1107 hayate1106
Many <3s
Hamzawa-san is deh love.

hayate1109
It really does need more Izumi events, and not only on the back cover.

Hayate volume 12 : aliens ? in my Hayate no Gotoku ?

Regardless, this volume delivered the most awesome scene in the whole manga.

WARNING : AMAZING HINAGIKU X HAMZAWA-SAN SCENE INCOMING

hayate1201
The whole HnG cast (separately) decides to go to an onsen, and everybody ends up in the same onsen (lol coincidences).

hayate1202
While Hina is wondering if she must tell Ayumu about her feelings for Hayate, Ayumu asks for skinship. <3 <3 <3

hayate1203
Hina : “W- What ? ///”
Ayumu : “Nothing, I was just thinking that you have a nice skin…”
Hina : “ha… ?”
Ayumu : “Wow your hair are so silky too…”
Hina keeps worrying and ends up collasping in the onsen.

hayate1204
Here begins legendary scene.

hayate1205
H : “… where are we ?”
A : “In the dressing room. You collapsed…”
H : “Oh, I see… thanks for looking after me.”
A : “Eh ? iya there’s no need to thank me…”
A : “Actually I’m used to it. Long ago when I took baths with my little brother, he often went dizzy and collasped…”
H : “You’re a kind onee-san who take good care of
your little brother.” <<< she looks so cute here <3 <3 <3
A : “Eh ? iya~ that’s just the normal thing to do…”
A : “But you really do have a nice skin.”
H : “Eh ?”
A : “Ah, you don’t remember ? Actually, when I wiped your body with the towel, I got worked up a little…”

H : “!!”
H : “………. I can’t be a bride anymore… T_T ”
A : “haha, don’t exaggerate… Ah, jaa I will make you my wife then.”
H : “Baka, and what are you doing about Hayate-kun then ?”
A : “Oh, yeah…”
A : “jaa, bigamy ?
H : “mou…”

Man I was melting here… Ayumu = deh loveness, Hina = deh cuteness <3

H : “(I… can’t lie to her… I don’t want to lie to her…)”
H : “(So…) Nishizawa-san !!”

hayate1206
A : “Weren’t you calling me Ayumu so far ?”
H : “… ///”
H : “(This is the first time in my life that my heart unconsciously flutters because of a girl…) ” <<< <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 and many more

H : “(I have to clearly tell her…) Well then, Ayumu !!!”
H : “I have something to tell you… Something important to tell you…”
A : “Eh ? Something important ?”
H : “Yes ! Actually I…”
A : “Err wouldn’t you mind talking about it somewhere else ?”
H : “!!”
grannies : “(ara so cute~) (ah the youth~)”

XD
Just amazing <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
How can’t you want them to be together forever ?

hayate1207
All that Hina x Ayu thing was great, but let’s not forget about Miki.
Need moar Blue-chan.

hayate1208
Hayate luvz Nagi’s soft little ass :o
Even I found that scene too indecent XD

hayate1209
Miki got a return gift during White Day for the chocolate she gave to Hina during Valentine Day. Nice <3 <3 <3

hayate1210
Nagi playing Iori’s route in iM@S, lol seiyuu reference~

hayate1211
gero gero gerorin~

Volume 13 : Sakuya’s birthday is approaching. I said it before in the previous HnG, but my love for Saku keeps growing at full speed for some reason. I don’t remember since when exactly, but I think it started when I played her route in the first NDS game (“Hayate no Gotoku Boku ga Romeo de Romeo ga Boku de”). Never before that I actually considered her as a potential lover for Hayate and she used to be my least favorite (mostly because there are too much awesome characters already so I was always forgetting about Saku orz), but when I saw her all lovey-dovey with Hayate I found that totally refreshing and cute.

All this for saying that Saku is now one of my favs, and for introducing the following scan :

hayate1301
left page, first panel : “If you can make me roar of laughter from the bottom of my heart then it’s fine.”
Saku = most charming smile in HnG <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
No need to mention that it made my love for her grow like crazy.

hayate1302
moar Saku <3
It’s been a moment already, but Saku now calls Hayate by his first name instead of Ayasaki or ‘Shakkin Hitsuji’. Also, in one random chapter in which Nagi is busy with a mecha-Hayate (!), Sakuya was casually reading books in Hayate’s room while he was doing his homeworks :o
They sure became quite a pair of buddies.
Left page : omg a Risa chapter ! It was quite the lulz XD

hayate1303
RISA FLAG GETTO !?
Man I wasn’t expecting something like that to happen at all XD

hayate1304
With all the awesome Hina x Ayumu goodness from the previous volume and the recurrent bit of Hayate x Saku sweetness spreaded here and there in almost every chapters, I tend to forget that my second fav is supposed to be Isumi… but she’s so unused, and the few chapters she’s in generally lacks of interest and are nothing near the great Isumi route in the first HnG NDS game. Most of the time she’s only here for cosplay and comical relief, and this chapter was a good exemple of that. orz
But still… That blushing face of her is damn cute <3 <3 <3

hayate1305
Saku : “ok then I’ll learn you the true spirit of a maid”
Hayate : “yay~ then you will dress into a maid too, Sakuya-san ?”
Saku : “…”
Saku : “Oh that’s right, that’s right… You love maids very much don’t you, Butler-in-debt ?”
Hayate : “(She’s smilling but I feel like I’ve lost a lot of love points…)”
haha she does call him shakkin hitsuji when she’s angry XD

hayate1306
Isumi still cosplaying~
Saku XD

hayate1307
End of the chapter.
Maria : “We have been totally forgotten…”
Nagi : “Yup, as much as a pink-haired meganekko with big breasts in a group of 4 persons.”
XD
Even though she appeared before, this was also Haruko’s introduction chapter, serious and reliable member of the seitokai when at school, and Sakuya’s silly moe maid when outside school XD

hayate1308
Hamzawa-san saabisu~
Well, that had to happen XD

From the preview of the next volume, it seems that the next extreme love & piece event will be… SAKUYA EVENT !!!

Looks like Hata-sensei will make a chapter about her birthday. Man I just can’t wait to read it.

For ending this post; bought some stuffs last week :

dscn0370

The freshly released third Lucky Star Comic à la Carte book I’ve ordered last week got delivered. As the previous one, this book has the delicate scent of lily~ <3

Also… Bought Seto no Hanayome manga 13 volumes package. orz

Well actually it was terribly cheap, so my card didn’t shed so much tears… the only problem is that I’m really lacking of room for all these books… I’m buying way too much orz

But well… I guess I’m compensating for the fact I don’t have internet anymore…

Hayate no Gotoku volume 9 & 10

Blogged by on Saturday October 25th, 2008 at 3:39 pm in English, Hayate no Gotoku, Manga (spoilers) | 0 Comments »

moar random scans~

img014
“But me who share the same blood as her… I feel like the time when guys were gathering around me is moving away years by years… !!”

Hmmm… So they really are sisters, it’s confirmed later in a chapter that tells a bit about Hina’s past… Dunno, feel a little bit disappointed since she’s not exactly like Hayate (he didn’t have a big brother/sister he could rely on… ok Yukiji isn’t reliable at all but still XD)… and man they look so nothing like each others :o

img015
Ha : “I don’t have the requirements for having a girlfriend”
Hi : “… why ?”
Ha : “I don’t have the ability to rear a girl”
Ha : “If a boy want to date a girl, he must have the ability to keep her safe from troubles during her whole life !”
Ha : “That’s what my previous girlfriend told me !”

Hayate’s first love… well I feel like she’ll definitely appear eventually, but Hata-sensei doesn’t plan to add her in the Hayate x Hina x Ayumu x Maria whole thing, does he ???
Left page : judging how Izumi is blushing, she sures luvs Hayata-kun a lot <3
Well that’s nothing new, just that it makes me want to see more Hayate x Iinchou-san events <3 <3 <3
… Man they really should make a gyaruge… an Izumi route is badly needed.

img016
Maria-san joins the clan of the ‘abandoned children’, but why do I feel not surprised at all ? Maybe because it’s so “Maria-san” like. I mean, like, it’s just natural for characters like Maria-san to have this kind of past, I guess. I just hope it won’t give an handicap to Hamzawa-san, not being an abandoned child ^^;

img017
Nagi x Wataru, tsundere x tsundere.
Seeing this, I do feel like it’s a plausible ending, and I definilety approve of it. I find them rather cute <3

Actually, I just hope it won’t end with a Hayate x Nagi ending… Nagi should be with Isumi or Wataru and let Hayate spend quality time with the other girls… For some reason I just can’t think of Nagi as a potential lover for Hayate.

img035
Volume 10 has more info about Hina’s past, like how Yukiji and her met the Katsura family. Loli Yukiji :o

img037 img036
Pawaa of flawaa~ XD
Badass Hina is hot, and she’s quite an awesome cool-dere too. <3

Warning : awesome Hinagiku-san event incoming :

img040 img039 img038
img042 img041
“Ima… youyaku wakatta.
Watashi… kono hito no koto ga suki nan da.”
kita kita kita kiTA KITAAAAA !!!!!!!
I’m definitely in love with Hinagiku.
Last page : lovely Saki-san as a bonus~

img043
Chapter 100 : Britney-chan is HAWT

img044
Hayate’s Britney-chan is kind of cute too.

img045
yay Maria-san chapter, it’s been a while.
Right page : deh hotness <3

img046
Maria finally shows a bit of her strenght <3

LAST MINUTE UPDATE :

Yesterday I bought the freshly released Hayate volume 17 (and the 16th for finally completing the collection).

dscn0211

On the back of the book, there is actually a pic of Hayate’s childhood girlfriend I mentionned earlier, the mysterious Aa-tan. :o And well, that just confirms everything I was thinking of it :

dscn0216
Hayate and Athena (Aa-tan), his childhood girlfriend.
WHERE DID I SEE THAT FACE BEFORE ?

I actually had a hunch that she might be Maria-san, and that picture seems to confirm it (well that or that she may be Aerith’s reincarnation XD). I mean, the author just couldn’t add another potential lover to Hayate, so making Maria-san to be the childhood girlfriend was the most logical option.

On a more or less unrelated note, seeing Sakuya on the cover reminds me that I’m growing everyday more and more love for her, and I don’t know why.

See ya with more Hayate no Gotoku goodness~

Hayate no Gotoku volume 6~8

Blogged by on Friday October 3rd, 2008 at 3:28 pm in English, Hayate no Gotoku, Manga (spoilers) | 0 Comments »

I’ve started to read the Hayate manga some weeks ago, thanks to the fact that I got half of the released books for cheap in a japanese library which sells second-hand manga.

I talked about the anime already before (here), and it’s licensed almost everywhere so everybody knows about the story. For me, HnG is the anime/manga in which there is the largest number of lovely characters ever. Hinagiku, Isumi, Ayumu, Miki, Izumi, Saki, Maria-san, Sakuya, Nagi (almost in order of preference)… I love them all.

img178
Hinagiku is definitely one of my favorite characters ever.
I love her smile pretty much. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Actually, I could only watch the anime until the 27th episode and the beginning of the butler tournament (here), so I had to wait until the 6th volume for reading things I didn’t see in the anime. So here starts the highlights and random scans~

img194
Izumi : “Saki-san, frankly speaking, who do you think
will be the champion ?”
Saki : “I… I think the person who will be first will be the champion…”
XD

img196 img195
“Daijoubu yo… Watashi ga anata wo mamoru kara <3″
Hina x Miki event キタ━━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━━ !

img200 img199
Right page, bottom right panel = <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Miki rocks
*Hinagiku x Miki added to the Yuri wishing list*

img201
awww~

img202
dunno if it’s because she reads too much manga,
but Nagi is some quite bold 13 years old girl…
IIRC, it’s the second time she tries kissing Hayate, and the first time
he wasn’t even asleep (just before they visit Hina’s kendo club).
I wish she could remember that she asked Isumi for marriage
when they were younger…

img203
“We are allies of justice who happen to pass by”
Hinagiku and Isumi fighting side by side, awesome combi <3 <3 <3
(the Maid Max Heart combi was quite awesome too XD )

img239 img238
Volume 7, yay Sakuya event~ (blushing Sakuya <3)

img240
“haha… Sakuya-san no te… suggoku atatakai desu~”
A nice bit of skinship <3
moar Saku love² moments please

img241
Maria-san, still awesome <3

img242
I dig this version of the ‘Hayate no Gotoku’ XD

img244 img243
Right page : Hinagiku is Miki’s Tomari-chan, just awesome.
Left page : dude I luv Miki more and more

img246 img245
The long-awaited beginning of the Hinagiku x Hayata x Hamzawa-san love triangle.
I was so looking forward to it ever since I’ve read FlagPop (aka the awesome Hinagiku doujin).
Left page : Hinagiku-san you’re so cool <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

img250
Saku <3 <3 <3

img252 img251
omg, it’s finally Nagi who got the most servicey event so far, the obligatory “Oh, Snow-White !” scene (can’t be helped since she’s the main heroine).
Now I request Hinagiku version, reversed angle plz.
Nagi’s so bold @_@

img299
Volume 8. School uniform + untied hair Maria-san : HAWT

img300
Another Hayate x Hinagiku x Ayumu event KITA !
“Ah mou !! So cute !”
Even Hinagiku luvs Hamzawa-san’s cuteness <3

img301
Ayumu : “Ah, incidentally, I’ve been picked up too”
XD

img302
Right page, upper-right panel = OMG DEH LOVE <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Hinagiku still luvs Hamzawa-san’s cuteness (left page).

img303
Left page : “‘He surely carries the same pain as me'”
Finally a bit about Hina’s childhood.
Actually, it’s only since I started to read the manga in japanese that I learned that Hinagiku may apparantly be an adopted child, cause when she calls her ‘mother’ the furigana say ‘okaa-san’ but the kanji say ‘stepmother’. Well at least it would explain
why she doesn’t look like her sis.
Anyway, want more HHH quality moments (Hayata x Hinagiku x Hamzawa-san)

img003
omg the love <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

img004
Man I loved that scene. The last panel in the left page is awesome.
I’m pretty fond of that Sister now :)

img001
The volume ends with a nice Hinagiku x Ayumu short story.
Such an awesome combi <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

img002
Hina : “don’t let go my hand !”
Ayumu : “ok~ <3″
Damn… If Hina keeps blushing at Hamzawa-san’s cuteness, that really will make me wish for the two of them to be together forever… arg my imagination starts running wild, and I’m now thinking of some awesome Ayumu x Hina x Miki love triangle… orz
*Hinagiku x Ayumu added to the Yuri wishing list*
See what you have done, Hata-sensei XD

img005
When I see these gyaruge-like scenes on the back covers, I can’t help but think that they should definitely make a Hayate no Gotoku Ps2 gyaruge.

That was some delicious copypasta~. Honestly, I love how the things are going, the HHH love triangle that is. At first I was all for a Hinagiku ending, but like I say girls who confess their love properly win. Moreover, there is Miki… So I’m now mostly for a Hamzawa-san ending, but with the recent Hina x Ayu chapters I’m not sure anymore. XD Man I’ve never been so indecisive about the ending I wish since School Rumble and the awesome Yakumo x Kenji x Eri thing.

See ya with moar random scans.

:beer:
