I found what Nagi said at the end of the chapter a bit touching, if also sad.

Nagi's words are very touching... yeah! I agree.... and I just realized that both Nagi and Sakuya don't have mother anymore

Nagi's deceased mother was brought up several times in the series, but I completely forgot about Sakuya.

lol, Good chapter, and quite funny. Fumi, in particular, is a complete mystery. It's true that Hayate in general has a rather large cast, and that it's taking a lot of maintenance to spread the focus evenly. However, I've always found Fumi rather strange and unfathomable precisely because Hata hasn't seemed to have remotely tried to introduce a purpose for her in the story. The way that, in this chapter, her face/existence got reduced to nothing but a caricature of an emoticon was rather hilarious actually. As part of only a semi-serious narrative, if this joke was really the reason why Fumi was put in this story then I will have to give it to Hata, because I dunno if I could think of anything that would be much more satirical than that.

It was touching, and yes, Maria's all that to her, but it doesn't look like Sakuya's got that kind of relationship with Chiharu.

Very nice chapter, I don't even care if this isn't going anywhere anymore.

Fumi's pointlessness as a character is primarily what makes her funny, I think. Mind you, she came in 11th place in the last character poll, which is undoubtedly the main reason for her return. I'm pretty sure she mostly built her popularity off her omake/websunday comic appearances, because the 4 panel format generally seems to fit her best.

Speaking of, back when Hata was doing Q&A sessions on his blog, somebody asked him about spin off comics, and he threw out three ideas:

1. A Hina/Yukiji comic, because there's more backstory there then he'll ever fit into this one.

2. A comic based around Athena/Machina and Isumi/Sakuya, presumably with a supernatural adventure bent.

3. A Fumi/Sharuna gag comic for a younger audience titled something like "Whatever You Like is Ok."

Personally, I'd read all of them, but they can also be taken as "Things that won't get much focus in this manga" if you want to read into it.

^ I would definitely read all of those.

They must be written.

I don't see why he can't put the third idea into a series of 4-koma omakes at the end of each tankoubon.

I'll take that without the Isumi/Sakuya part. In exchange Hata can have my money. All of it.

...

I feel I understand exactly what Hayate felt when Nagi passed on the manga to him, because it's got to be what I felt after reading c342.

That's it? The celebratory chapter after 7 years of serialization?

Somehow I seriously feel despair increasingly gnawing at my bone. What the hell has happened to this show, which i so loved and whose chapters I eagerly anticipated raw? At the moment I'm almost worried to open the scanlations, because the chance it high that it's merely going to lead to another disappointment.

Part of me wants some editor to face Hata and to ask him "For real now. Are you satisfied with your latest chapters? What do you think how satisfied your fans are?"

lol. Nagi's manga might be terrible, but at least I for one find them uproariously funny. Of course, that's a bit meta however in that I'm not sure Nagi's aiming for comedy in the first place.

We've got yet another new female character? I'm thinking she might be another tenant. Of course, living in a tent doesn't inspire confidence that she'd be able to afford even the 40000 yen per month rent, but if she's genuinely interested in Nagi's manga, that might be interesting (or, alternatively, she's another sleeper agent that has something to do with that two-faced girl with the robots like from when Hayate and Luka first met each other).

Well, for the 7th anniversary chapter this did feel a bit uneventful aside from Nagi's manga. Luka's doujin was pretty cute/fun on the side as well though. I guess I'll just wait to see what happens with the new girl.

Another new character?



I know she was foreshadowed a bit earlier, but goddammit. Enough of this.

Wait, what? Just to be clear, Nagi's manga isn't the celebratory chapter. Luka's manga is.

Nope. The "This is Hayate no Gotoku's 7 Year Anniversary Chapter" note was written on top of Nagi's chapter, not Luka's manga.

Not that it really matters much though ^_^; ... maybe it's just that I find it exceptionally hard to get excited over this manga contest, particularly since we had it all before already. So I'm hoping that we'll be able to reach the main storyline when Athena is "recharged" soon. Or any other continuous sub-arc which has more to offer than Nagi's latent unwillingness to adjust her grand plans to what she really CAN accomplish.

To be honest, I'd really like them to finally start telling us what happened with Ikusa. Who is Himegami? What secrets the Royal Garden holds exactly and how is Yukariko related to it? How is Maria related to Athena (or why did she see her in that memory device)? Will Maria ever stop being a gag-character? What happened with Yozora and the whole 28th thing and how is Luca related to it?

There are so many plot points scattered everywhere yet Hata is still continuing this whole mangaka deal which is filled with side-characters chapters. Personally, I think it should have ended with Nagi losing, but realising she doesn't need to be a pro to keep drawing the stories she likes, nor does she have to sell them.

Oh well, hopefully something good will come out of this. It'll probably will.
