Chapter 563 had recently dropped kicking off the aforementioned final 6-chapter countdown and bloody hell did it kick off in style in the most delightful chapter in recent memory. Hinagiku finally gets the Top 10 Anime Fights treatment she deserves and a nostalgic throwback to Evangelion’s opening theme song “A Cruel Angel’s Thesis”; a meta-throwback at that as Hina had once performed the song in the 9th volume and in the 2nd season anime; consequently spawning a torrent of Hina/Shizuka Itou singles and albums.
Warning: Spoilers and meta spoilers ahead but then again who else is reading this manga? ;_;
Oh boy when was the last time I made a Hayate no Gotoku! post?
Spoiler Warning: Hayate no Gotoku! spoilers ahead but who the hell is still reading this amirite? ;_;
The amount of butt clench through Athena’s dress in this chapter was unreal.
It’s hard to believe that Hayate no Gotoku! surpassed ten years of serialisation. Ten years, that’s nearly double the amount of year’s I’ve been living lol. Even though I started following Hayate since 2007 it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long since I first came across Hayate in one of those free manga taster books Viz Media used to make years ago when they had spare change. Leaving aside my disappointment that Hata yet again shot himself in the foot by wasting more OVA opportunities, on with the episodic review.
Those were some pretty fireworks.
Hayate no Gotoku! Cuties is the fourth instalment in the Hayate no Gotoku! anime series. Now, normally you would expect the first season to continue on in the second season, and so on and so forth – this isn’t the case with Hayate. The first season follows the first five volumes of the manga whereas the second season stayed faithful from volume six to fourteen. The third season thought “what the hell” and jumped ahead and beyond the timeframe of events in the manga serialising weekly at the time. This fourth season doesn’t do any better as we’re about to find out.
WHO WILL WIN HAYATE’S KISS? WHO? WHO? WHO???
As speculated, while the first ten episodes of Hayate no Gotoku! Cuties featured each heroine of the series, the final two will serve an original story by Kenjirou Hata about the history of Kisu, the Japanese name for fish!
