Time and time again, Hata raised an issue, giving us the impression that the resolution of this issue actually really mattered.

- The Hinagiku development up to her intention to confess
- The Athena development up to their splitup
- Nagi's "Love Hina" move out, and "growth"
- The Ruka development up to their splitup
- The "King Jewel" hunt
- The Reconciliation with Hayate's brother

And the funny thing: None of this actually matters at all. Nothing has really changed. Any gradual developments of characters which could be seen _during these respective arcs_ have been fully undone afterwards.

So, I've stopped waiting for any "developments", "resolutions" or even "attempts to end things" and relegated HnG to "joke of the week" format. And lo and behold - it actually allowed me to enjoy things more, even though it forced me to disattach myself from several characters.

It's just the way it is. NOTHING MATTERS.
i agree with you, there is not real development in this story, and we have so many "filler" .... i still don't understand the reason for the ruka arc(i have the feeling the ruka was going to affect the story in another way...but...it was changed at the last minute).

and how many chapters we need to wait for the real plot..(king jewel, nagi mother, athena arc..even hayate parents ....)

......i know that this is a comedy story with a few serious arcs(i really like the athena arc).....but the comedy is so low lately.. i really enjoyed the first vols comedy.

I'm pretty resigned to the fact that you seem to have a completely different read on the manga then I do.

There's no question that the manga is on it's way to ending though. Not since Hata telegraphed (and confirmed) that the story would end in December and has spent a lot of time in omake's and elsewhere talking about his plans for the ending.
it this true?....and, in what month is the story now in?.....i don't remember a thing now..

Pretty sure it's still in August.

Only took 10 years to advance 8 months in the story, so at this rate there's only another 5 years left until it ends!

It's going to go full circle and lead back to the discussion they had this chapter. The stone is going to end up being in some book that Maria will likely pick up and hand back to Mikado moments before Hayate and Nagi return to them (after many hijinks in attempting to break into the vault, only to not be able to find it). As they leave, Mikado will either open the book and have the gem fall out (Oh, that's where I put it), or open it to make sure it's still there before putting it back.

That's Hata's blend of trolling.

At least the plot got picked back up this week rather than getting dropped for a while.

Finally getting caught back up. W00t.

The poker episode was great fun, and Mikado's rant about Christmas was very very Zetsubou-sensei.

Is that the "can't show that" guy from the first season of the anime? Man, that's from a while back.

... This beach has not just Ika-chan, but the beach house and the rest of that series' cast, apparently.

And the lady was Ikusa. Should I make a "like brother, like brother" comment here? :P

Given Ikusa's comment about how his little brother was a cute kid, I was half expecting this to somehow be resolved by Hayate somehow being turned back into a 6-year-old by the King's Gem, but I'm not sure there's any way for that to happen. Too late for that now anyway :P

And finally I'm up to date with Nagi doing some Hollywood hacking.

I'm looking forward to Hayate's decision on the female with part time job of hiding the key somewhere.

Unlike the muscular dog, this one is not something to have bloody fight with.

I figured the needlessly huge breasts reference was to his brother cross dressing, not Yukiji's greed.

So Hayate really has a sex drive?
And he admits he could grope A-tan chest without hesitation???
That was golden.

The last two chapters have been pretty damn hilarious.

Had to love A-tan's reaction to Hayate thinking about groping her breasts.
