Oh god I mentioned on my early spoiler post how this was probably the best chapter ever, and I guess I was right, this really is the best chapter of Hayate I’ve seen yet…it was pretty emotional as well IMO…manly tears were almost shed here. And the long battle to save Athena has reached the end, and what an amazing end it was.
As Hayate charges with the flaming wooden Masamune, Athena’s once again confirms she is too nice of a person sometimes.
Athena can no longer hide her pain, and at this point neither could I
After an emotionally crushing scene, Hayate finally conquers Midas’ attacks and free Athena from his control! After 10 years, Athena and Hayate have now truly reunited! ;__; however…
Ah Hinagiku, you break my heart as well…but Im sure, im positively 100% sure that your good deeds will be rewarded greatly in the future, but as much as I can think it just wont be with Hayate, much like Yukiji said…you cannot always get what you want, but that still does not mean that you can be happy. This chapter has further pushed Athena and Hinagiku on my list of all time favourite characters from any series, they are both fantastic characters on different forms and I applaud Hata-sensei on being able to create 2 absolutely wonderful characters. But Hinagiku is not the focus at this point, the main thing I want to know now is…what will Hayate tell Athena next chapter? Is it his confession? or maybe its an apology? We know that the 1st of the 2 things he wanted to say was gratitude, so while im leaning more on apology as the 2nd thing, if he doesnt confess…doesnt that just make all of Hinagiku’s efforts up until now meaningless? since she is doing all of this so Hayate can tell her his feelings…since she was unable to do it herself. For the sake of Hinagiku’s efforts, I think a confession would be good. But that is for next week, I wonder what will happen.
