Honestly, I'm pretty sure "always end on a cliffhanger" is rule number one in manga editorial training. Unless you're wrapping up an arc, always have a hook to keep people reading.

Anyway, another good chapter. Nagi is as sharp as ever.

I liked Hina's exasperated expression on finally making it back, too. And Hamster just being Hamster, naturally.

Now that Ikusa knows Hayate's motivation he's almost certainly planning to test him in some way.

that a suprise, Ikusa being rich, but he still doesn't want to give the stone to Hayate.
Well at least Hayate doesn't have to get the money thanks to Nagi.

Now I'm starting to question just how deep Ikusa's memory loss is, unless his encounter with Athena cured his amnesia.

Fitting how that first chapter of the volume is "Attention Please."

Kay... Now I'm confused. Wasn't the competition supposed to be a joke?

The chapter was hilarious btw.

It was a joke. Until he heard about Hayate putting his life on the line for someone, which is exactly the sort of thing Ikusa considers Serious Business. He's basically telling Hayate that talk is cheap and he lacks the resolve. So he can try and prove it by winning the joke competition anyway.

Honestly, he has a point, even if he's kind of a dick about it. That's Ikusa in a nutshell though, he's so heroic and selfless that it makes him kind of a jerk, even going back to Lifesavers.

so I'm guessing they will try to cheer up Hayate so that he continue the competition or a unexpect thing will happen that will put Nagi in danger.

I guess Ikusa didn't lose his memory after all....

I like how Ikusa revealed what Hayate did to Hinagiku in the island

Ayumu and Nagi's reactions are hilarious

Ayumu and Nagi throwing sands to Hayate, and Hayate pouring sands out from the shoe while talking.

Hayate's in depression thinking it is impossible to win only with Ayumu and Nagi helping.

This chapter is really great.

Oh, Hata-sensei. *lol* Man, you just never know where the man is going to go.

I definitely don't know where this arc is going after the last chapter, that was really unexpected to add those two girls into the turmoil.

Given the amount of lineface Fumi gets from the fans over here, I can only imagine someone annoyed Hata and this is his revenge.

Fumi never fails to give me a laugh.

And Hata-Sensei continues to do what he does best. Not do what you expect him to do.

Surprising me almost every week is one of the things this manga does best.

Oh, and suddenly Fumi is the best kind of suddenly.

Sometimes, Fumi isn't as good as others, but this chapter, she's bang on funny. ^_^

I was honestly a little cold on Fumi when she first appeared in the manga, but once she clicked for me she never stopped being funny.

I think a good part of it was just spending a lot of time translating the old Backstage 4Koma's when those were a thing. Fumi had a ton of them documenting her "canon but in no way related to anything involving other characters, ever" adventures.

One of the things I still appreciate about Fumi is that she's never lost this "interloper" feel she's had all the way from her introduction. She basically has nothing to do with any of the actual characters and only crosses paths with them by accident, usually to their severe annoyance.

Even her style of humor is very 4-Koma based and different from the other characters, which makes her stand out from the rest of the manga that much more. Fumi chapters are noticeably different then other chapters, and I think that's neat.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I think a lot of people don't fully get Fumi because she's kind of a meta-joke.

I liked her from the start. Her introduction was clearly a parody of Tohru from Fruits Basket. Then she established her awesomely stupid-funny credentials when she tried to wake Nagi up by breaking up a loaf of bread on Nagi's head, then getting a pigeon to put on Nagi's head. I literally laughed so hard and so long at that, it felt like I'd done a few hundred situps for the next couple of days.

After that, I've liked her character a lot, and in this chapter, I felt she was used quite well. Now that she's planning to stalk Ikusa...*lol* Oh man, the mind reels at the possibilities.
