Just like it's the prerogative of people like me to point out that this uber goddess was essentially merely a damsel in distress who needed the help of most of the HnG cast to be saved from her (according to her own words) self-inflicted predicament.

Truth is in the eye of the beholder. In the meantime I'm looking forward to chapters featuring Athena in less than 50% of the panels, with a single Hayate dealing with the rest of the cast ... will be a refreshing change of pace for me.
Fans love to protect the characters they love after all. I mean, Athena fans who try to explain their points of view behind Athena's actions to those who see it differently are in no way different from how you defend Hinagiku's actions and words as well when someone sees it different from you, right? You said many pages back something about how you dont like it when someone says something about Hinagiku that looks wrong (not exact wording), its the same for us as well.I could say more but....bleh I g2g to class soon

I hope that what Athena said to Nagi is more like: use the time to get some fun with Hayate.... since when I return to Japan I will not give it up like this anymore ^^

so Athena gives Nagi some time for her to develop some more memories with hayate... since next time Athena wont back off.. and will go for the attack ^^

maybe the ring box is like a sign.... like nagi has the box (hayate)... but athena has the ring (love/bond).... but the ring was with the box at the beggining... so Athena will some time in future come back to regain the box (hayate) ^^

I hope she wont disappear like that for good...but later she will return to Japan (I guess at the ring panel athena mentioned Japan....), I would be happy if she build a house near nagis.... simply becomed a normal character.... since athena now wears usuall cloths (bra+t-shirt+skirt)..... that t-shirt reminds me of one that Hina was wearing ^^....... so maybe athenas cloths points that she will become a normal girl and one to stick at the screen

anywya there are 2stones that we know about...... Aika and Wataru.... heh maybe 1will be used to make hayate go into RG... and inprison him there... so they will use 2nd stone to save hayate on 1point in the story (prefer hina for this mission..... since she is the female version of the hero of justice ^^)

Perfectly right, I don't pretend to be any different here

Let's take it all with a wink and a smile.

In 266, the best lines were:

"I'll give that [i.e. Hayate] back this time, but next time, I don't know... *wink*"

and

Snake guy: "I like Japan's MOS BURGER better than Greece's McDonalds"
"...if that's so, it's not like we can't go back to Japan"
*ring sparkle*

Damn. Athena is so much pwn


EDIT:
Also loved Izumi's sand sculpture. DESTROY! What was Sakuya wearing? Otaku baiting swimsuit?

it maybe a memento from Hayate for her or a hint that she could possibly return 2 or 3 years later to hayate until he payback all his debt for the continuation of their relationship (juste like the end of ichigo 100%)

Finally read ch266, and man, Athena is going back to Japan~. There is still hope for Hayate x Athena!!

from the manga
アテナ:だったら日本に帰らなくてはね
which translates to: Then we have to go to Japan, don't we?

Seriously. Please no Harem Hata. I don't care which girl it is as long as it ends eventually -_-

Well it seems like Athena's back in the running, hm?

Looking at the spoilers, it's funny how no one mentioned how similar Athena and Nagi are in appearance, but Hayate was to Ikusa and Yukariko...They could claim that they're sisters and no one will doubt it. Lo

Lol, I wonder.
Because it's been established since a long time ago that Nagi's character design was derived from Athena's. There'd be no reason to point it out now since we've known for a long time.

Hata trolled everyone.

D:

Yeah, I wonder if we'll see Hayate's parents again. I hope so, because just leaving them as "a bad couple who dissappeared" kind of doesn't match the more deep(?arguable?) and serious tone HnG has been having recently.

i can see Hata pulling a Tsubasa Chronicles soon

Hayate looks like Nagi's father and mother, and Athena looks like Nagi, meaning that they go back in time and Hayate and Athena are actually Nagi's parents in some weird plot twist....calling it now....the rage will be glorious

I'm still sure Nagi will win. I see they idea of a harem in a manga as diversifying risk when you play the roulette. The difference is that, instead of choosing different combinations of numbers and colours, you put a grand variety of girls with different looks and personalities, so that even if the readers don't like too much the main girl, they'll keep checking the story for the girl they like. However, in the harem factor is just there to attract (and keep) fans, not to actually affect the outcome of the story. In fact, I think this can be easily proved since, in almost all harem mangas, the main character always end up with the main girl (or one which was made obvious from the very beginning - i.e. assuming there isn't one "main" girl). Personally, I don't think Hata plans to stray away from the norm.

I don't have anything against Nagi. In fact, I do like her. However, I just wouldn't want a Nagi end, not because she's supposed to be a loli, or whatever. Fuck, I like lolis myself, and I've rooted for a loli end in other series. All the same, Nagi and Hayate have never, not even once, got romantic development. So far, their development has been that of siblings, or that of a father and his daughter. Their relationship has been developed as that of family. That's the reason why I've enjoyed it, and why I've found it nice. If Hata does indeed decide to have them end up as a couple - which, as I've said, I believe he will - and changes their development into a romantic one, just to keep up with main-male-ends-up-with-main-female cliché, I'd personally be very disappointed. But, once again, that's just my own opinion.

It could be used for comedy purposes.
