Um.. HnG is about those randome slice of life, fourth wall breaking and references. That's what it's always been about.

The meetings with Athena were the variant of the series.

Maybe it's because the plot only followed Athena so far, so there wasn't really anything important or serious happened besides Athena's story. And, the chapters with Athena is a fraction of the random slice of life chapters, which consisted of many other characters.

That leaves a little less then two weeks until the flashforward, but ugh. I'm kinda hoping we skip ahead a little soon. That said, we don't really know what this weeks chapter is about other then excessive Maria fanservice and Hata poking fun at himself.
I hope we flash forward soon too. Izumi's birthday is June 21st, and the quicker we finish this manga-battle arc crap, the sooner we can get her again.

I think he has some 'stock' chapters, so that it's only if we look closely that we notice.

I believe Wataru's arc of the Golden Week adventure was this, used because Hata was actually too sick to come up with new material.

Oh... I think that makes sense. It's also a better move than just taking a break, I think.

Hell, I still remember the CLAMP team getting a break every 5 issues with Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. Hell... that was annoying.

I'm getting the feeling some of the fandom would rather Hata took a break and came back to the main plot, though. I'm kinda starting to agree.

It'd be the same, though. If he already had these chapters prepared in advance as a just in case, then that means he's probably taking a break right now.

But I think he's brought this upon himself for adding to many elements on one single arc.
The whole deal with Luca and Yozora already seemed fishy, and then, to boot he added Athena, who is pretty much Miss Plot Device. And then he's put a bunch of characters living together. I think it's just too much for one arc.

I think the Athena/Alice plot arc was forced on him by the executives, since Athena is the second most popular character of the story. Things seemed to be headed somewhere until she decided to show up, out of the blue rather.

Things with Luca and Yozora you could see hints to further events, but Alice doesn't seem to have any, and seems to be countering her own motives besides.

Yeah, even though she's my favourite character, I've got to admit her appearance in this arc came, basically, out of nowhere, especially when the plot with Luca had just started to move. It's funny because she showed up on the same chapter in which we got the popularity polls, if I remember correctly.

At first, I thought she'd be related to this arc's plot, but seeing the current chapters, I'm starting to have doubts on that. Hopefully, Hata will prove me wrong, but well, we'll have to see, I guess.

Well, it isn't as if Alice has done much either. In fact, one could either argue she's done nothing to affect the plot so far.

I don't think she had or could since Hata even admitted that he's lost with this arc currently (?). I hope that he already had plans for Alice, and didn't introduced her for the fans, since he did say that Alice's appearance was coincidental with the result of the poll. Anyway, with the three months period to level up in the Hata Universe, it will take eternity for Alice to be able to do something meaningful...(Hope I'm wrong)

... Wait, what?
Hayate and Nagi aren't related, if that's what you're saying.

Well, as expected, Isumi showed up in the latest chapter. So, with this chapter, Hata has shown even single heroine in this arc.

Somehow I feel that this chapter was payback for all the times Sakuya teased Isumi.

I thought if anyone would notice that Alice is Athena it's Isumi, but since they never ran into each other in this chapter (Alice still sleeping?) there's no way to tell.
