But say, if you look at the way they act, it seems as if Maria had meant it. And though it's not a usual case, but it is inferred as 'boyfriend' at times.
And it's quite common that Maria mistakes Hayate as a girl, so I thought she meant that.

they have a completely separate word for romantic boyfriends, though--kareshi (sorry, can't type Japanese....)
Also, Maria says that she asked because Hayate's always hanging out with girls

A quick poll here, but...what's your guy's/gal's opinion on the progression of the latest manga chapter releases (say...from ch 170 to the current ch 212)? I'm kind of curious to know what the general consensus of this forum is, considering that recently there has been some dissenting opinions about how the author tends to digress and stall in the series (not helped by the frequency of a lot of the random one-shot chapters that tend to pop-up frequently nowadays). Some call it disillusionment of the series, but to me, it really does feel kind of like that sometimes.

Your thoughts? (and please don't rebuke me by saying I don't read the author's blog. I've already had someone throw that at me already on another forum)

I happen to have liked the progression of the series. It really has just been moving the way it does a lot. We have short mini arcs that give little bits of development and then the long arcs of Athena flashback and now the Greece Arc.

Then they have maybe a random chapter here or there. But so what? It's not like this is a once a month manga. It comes out once a week so if they have a weird chapter here or there then they usually go back to a mini-arc afterwards.

Also, the mini arcs are just useful for character development. There are so many characters in the manga that many would be pushed to the side if there were not the mini arcs.

Altogether I still like the path the manga is taking. I love this Las Vegas/Athens arc so much and it was a brilliant idea to get all of the characters together and interacting. And I look forward to the next chapters.

BTW, Hayate is currently my second favorite manga. One Piece has it slightly beat but that is because I REALLY love the current arc in that.

Although I liked Athena's arc far better than anything else done in this manga, this story has always been slice of life-ish; so, it's been nothing odd. Everything that happened after Athena's arc, was simply the manga returning to its usual form.

my God I feel so bad for Nagi in the latest chapter. All she wants is some alone time with Hayate...

sorry but i got no sympathy for nagi because i dont think she should be with hayate i mean sure as friends but a 13 year old with a 16 year old to me is child abuse and a thirteen year old pampered spioled brat with a 16 year old guy with some body made of steel is not my cup of tea i rather have him with maria

Chapter 213 is out! And it's good...
Hamster asks Hinagiku why she likes Hayate, given the chasm between their situations...

Spoiler for answer:


(then next page they bump into Hayate and Nagi. Awkward...)

That immediately makes me want to flip through my old Hayate volumes...

You know, I found something interesting. A shot of a guy who looks like Himegami
Spoiler for Himegami? And some logical speculation of his identity:

I hope Athena will show up soon... no, actually, I simply hope she shows up, at least once, during this arc.

Honestly, I'm not sure. I don't think they ended up in Athens for no reason, but I still wonder what exactly is Hata planning to do with Athena.

Wow, A-Tan is a really risky move for Hayate (manga). The expectations for her is very very very very high. Who knows what will happen, but I think the safest way is to make sure Athena isn't introduced to the group or Hayate to keep the story flow going in tact.

I think the safest way to do that is through Maria and show the relationship between Athena and Maria since Maria has some connection to Greece and she's actually there! Maria's past is pretty weak compared to the other major characters so development there won't do major chaos with the rest of the cast. Then again, I have no clue what's going to happen. The author might just take the risk and introduce her to everyone and we might end up with an even better story (or a really big mess).

Can anyone translate or give a brief summary the recent chapters? Something odd is happening.

No news of popularity poll yet. And for recent chapters, Hayate and the girls are just playing around.
