For me at least, Athena's not out of the running, not by a long shot (and neither is Hina too)...

So... chapter 267 comes out tomorrow, right? The manga's getting really interesting these days, each new chapter makes a difference.

The text on the right side of the last page mentions something about a special episode. Will that take up the whole chapter?

Gone for a few hours and 2 pages were already filled. Not gonna bother reading it cause its the usual personal opinion regarding a character that fuels a fiery debate.

No it doesn't. Its so convenient now thanks to the internet and this makes us feel that the manga will come out early. The official release is on Wednesday in Japan, but those camera versions comes out earlier than that. The magazine is called Sunday because originally the company wanted the atmosphere of a relaxing sunday, but the magazine is actually released on wednesdays.

Well, if the camera version comes out, that's really all that matters to me. I was just thinking that since chapter 266 discussion started on March 26th, maybe we'd find out about 267 tomorrow.

If I didn't misunderstand, 267 won't be coming out this week! Instead of it, we'll see some extra chapter (like those "Limited!" ones you can read on O**M****). Perhaps you already saw a spoiler pic of it last week (Sakuya bathing, and Hayate in the background saying something...)

Oh, and I'll use Used Can's post to answer you, Mr. Mad Scientist-san~

Honestly, cannot you guys just agree to disagree? Fuck, it shames me to think I used to be part of this argument.

Hopefully we're done with that for a while, but since there's a possibility that a new chapter won't be coming out this week... well... hahaha... who knows? ^___^

Don't worry about all these posts. It's just me bringing back the Christmas CHEER!! *raises knife in hand high in the air; the sunlight reflects from it blinding everyone, and then only silence remains*

Yay! Everyone is happy now!

Lot of people were complaining in other forums that Hata couldn't depict Nagi in a penniless state and that's why he's using those extra chapters to buy more time.

You would've thought they would've dropped it after filling up at least 5 pages with that argument. So has it been finalized yet?

Most of those gags required some knowledge on Japanese culture and word tricks.

I dunno, looks like 'most important' ended up with Nagi as well.

@ most everything else: tl;dr

Anyway, you guys seem determined to declare this discussion over, even thought I put all this work into coming up with a long and insightful(?) post.... well, I'll spoilertag it, so you can ignore it if you want (:

For future developments, Nagi mentioned something about ruining Mikado's plans when she destroyed the stone.

What

does this mean

I think Hata's a plenty skilled enough writer to depict just about damn near anything he wants.

I don't know. He's kind of treading a thin line after all the controversy caused by the EoTW arc. I wouldn't call him a literary genius either, he should be able to do whatever he wants because it was/is a gag/comedy, but that's sort of changed a little now.

Spoiler for La:
i wonder who would be more important to a *normal* person- a girl who saved him 10 years ago, taught him many things, and whom he loved, who kicked him out due to his own retardedness, as compared to a girl he tried and failed to kidnap, then saved and being saved in turn, resulting in the desire to protect her.
The choice is obvious to me. But hayate's a retard so whatever choice he makes is easily justified.

U did realize a-tan was thinking of clinging to him and crying to change his mind, which meant that she knew he would probably change his mind if she did so, because he still had strong feelings for her. That is why she wore the ring he gave her to show that she accepts his feelings. She only wanted hayate to go back to nagi for the time being to repay her for breaking the stone, and also because it would be too sudden and would put him in a tough situation if she asked him to go with her right now. A-tan is smart-she obviously thinks that with time, hayate would be happier with her, and would be less guilty about 'breaking up' with nagi. Hence the choice of words "giving him back for now" because he would be happier with nagi and his circle of friends for now.It also seemed to me that she referred to him as 'that' because she didnt want nagi to know about her and hayate for the time being.

I find it interesting that you think this is such a clear-cut choice. I mean, I don't even remember anyone I knew when I was 6, really, outside of family. I can't really be arsed to care much about crushes I had even 5-6 years ago either, much less 10.

More people prefer to live in the present then chasing ghosts from the past, I would wager, and there's nothing stupid about that.

I don't see how being kicked out was all Hayate's fault, either, but I'm pretty sure that's a discussion that will turn ugly fast.

Considering how many manga run on tropes like that (about toy shipping et al), this series shouldn't be criticized for doing similar, especially since it didn't make pretensions for realism in the first place.

Oh I know it's a common trope, and I'm not particularly picking on this series for that, although it really is a story device that does nothing for me. I just thought it was a little strange to see someone make such a big deal of it. (That is, I don't think I've ever seen anyone say "Dude, obviously you go with the girl from 10 years ago" before.) *shrug*

I think the trope gets subverted more often then not these days, though. Lots more crazy yandere "childhood friends" then destined lovers from what I've seen.

If it's affections, it isn't false to claim that Hayate's toward Athena is greater than Nagi due to what had happened between them. And with more affections, it's not strange to consider with more 'care.'

Even if you think it's some "crazy yandere childhood friend," Hata already labeled Athena as "Hayate's first lover." I guess I'd rather trust the mangaka. ^^

I don't know whether you're being sacrastic or not, but it's the left caption on chapter 218, I think.
