No more Irwin please.

Seriously though, that COULD be the magical time hat! We're sure this event isn't a flashback?

Considering she's handing over the ringbox, it has to be at least after the first fight with Midas (ie: 24 hours before the final fight). Since Athena is thanking Nagi, it's very likely to be after the final battle, especially since we saw the "day out on the town" between the fights.

In other words, not a flashback.

I think the idea behind that scene was to make you think Hayate would get the hat for her. In fact, I thought that much until I saw Athena. Then, Hata basically said "did you think Athena was out? well, think again?".

Never thought Athena would be the person to retrieve the hat. We got played good, not that I'm complaining.

Now, Athena should be back to Japan sooner than expected with her ship continue sailing. Guess A-tan fans don't need to jump on other ships anymore.

In chapter 266, Hayate told Hina that he got dumped because he made Athena wait for 10 years (clueless as ever). It's a chance Hina, Go, go, go! Who knows, maybe Hina might have a chance to go out with Hayate for awhile, or permantly, or get nuked again...Anyway, her chance suddenly drastically decreased again with Athena re-entered the picture.

Nonoooo... the fact that she has NOT confessed yet is her biggest asset ... I don't see that squandered.

And why would that be?

Assuming that Athena is no liar, she won't be returning to Japan with him. And Hayate's perspective (wondering when he'll find in love with someone else again) hasn't changed either. It's a cute victory lap for her fans, but pretty much a non-factor for the return to the main arc.

That's the very same reason that still gives Hina fans hope , and it probably will be that way until the story ends if she keeps this up (I, honestly, won't be surprised if she will never confess).

Hayate already returned to Japan with the group without Athena. =P

I think the battle is already between Nagi and Athena again the moment that they met. Of course, Hayate is still very much in love with Athena. By the time Athena comes back (gonna be every soon, I think), Hina should make her move if she wants a chance (If she still hasn't by then, she might as well stay in her shell forever...). But what's the chance that Hayate's going to accept Hina (doesn't have feelings for her + have to stay by Nagi's side until she lets him go) ? Well, I'll leave it your imagination.

I think Nagi is becoming a much better character with her recent developments, and she probably will show more of her charms in the future.

I lost interest in HnG once, but rejuvenated because I found this awesome character named A-Tan, so basically I'm one of those who skipped the so many chapters out there just to reach the current arc, thus I dont get this 'developments' of Nagi u are talking abt

Erm. Even if Nagi becomes a great character, I'll like her, but I'm not going to ship them.. sheesh.

For some reason people always like to ship their favorite characters together, rather than the characters that should be together.

Her developments are still relatively small. Pretty much her breaking the stone. However, considering the amount of development thus for in HnG (which is surprisingly lacking, guys. The most "development" we've got is just seeing character pasts, which isn't actually development). Compared to other characters, she's actually not very far behind, but that doesn't mean she's developed much at all.

HnG hasn't had much development tbh. Most of it is plot and character... definition.

Loving the assumptions that go into that statement. Neither of my top two favorites do I find plausible shipping targets (and the third doesn't even begin to appeal to plausibilitySquick). I have ships for both of them (I like 'everyone on the side of good is happy' endings, but neither of them are ending up with Hayate.
My favorite shipping is actually lower in favorites than other characters.

Nagi is the character who's grown the most since the beginning. At the start she didn't see any issue with money, now she's actually putting thought into what she earns (if not what she spends), and wanting the money she uses for Hayate's b-day present to be from what she earns herself, not from the stocks she probably bought with her grandfather's money.
She's more 'street smart' than she was at the beginning, when she thought everything had to do with being 'book-smart' (how someone can be successful at the stock market and not be 'street-smart' I'm not quite sure.)

The assumption about "people" doesn't mean "Bastion Arcion". You took defense too quickly. With that in mind, your entire first "paragraph" is like a counter to an attack that was never there.

Second paragraph I'd agree with. I honestly never saw the events between the beginning of the series and the breaking of the midas stone as significant, but you pretty much summarize the (perceived) significance of her breaking the stone. It's a symbol of materialism, you know?

PS: your location is existence, not existance

So you do noticed Bastion,
Cause only a true loyal Nagi fans noticed a single details of her growth,
plus, before her even breaking the stone,
she already grown much such as not easily give up anymore,
and etc.
And it now end to the fact that A-tan just revives herself from Chapter 265 and went all-assault in few chapters later.......

Goddamn again. I went back a page and saw people's responses...I guess I was a bit late.. xD

But if A-tan did return to Japan just not with Hayate, seems like Hata just wanted to somehow make it clear that A-tan x Hayate won't happen, but still wants A-tan as a character.... Happens in a lot of Harem mangas, and at that point, only thing left for people shipping that relationship is denial and despair...
