This episode ends the first half of the 8th volume of the manga covering 3 1/2 chapters. Truthfully speaking, this is where the whole Hinagiku fanboyism fuss begins and amplified more on Hinagiku’s birthday arc which is at the second half of volume 9.
This episode’s highlights:
1. Nagi’s housework ability.
Realize the parts where the camera is focused.
I do not know if they are just too lazy to draw or they just want to provide some mini-fan service scenes.
Nagi doing housework = Armageddon.
And because Nagi let her guard down, the kitchen became like this. This was also demonstrated in the first season of the anime and in the manga. I especially loved that episode especially when Nagi made a very disastrous food.
It makes me wonder how much does Maria and Hayate spoil her.
2. The jealousy.
As Kurogane had noted in his blog, I think it is about time he consider J.C. staff godly.
Anyway, here is the message:
If the shopkeeper, parrot and plant make their appearances next week, I will declare J.C. Staff as godly.
And the Voice of Heavens is still an awesome announcer.
Despite being her only role in this episode, Maria still managed to put me into a laughing state.
And Maria’s teasing ended when the elevator comes to halt and blew her cover. Hayate tried to apologize but an unexpected event happened and…
4. Hina x Hayate
This is hilarious. Hayate’s thought is somehow affected by the earlier event with Hina.
In just one question, Hayate forgot how to speak in Japanese.
HAHAHAHAHA!!! This is win. The part when he easily rejected Hinagiku’s suggestion. I loved it even more when Yukiji reacted after Hayate’s humble rejection.
And it became better after this.
Apparently, her thought moves like this.
The very premise of her thought is that Hayate has a girlfriend. Therefore, she holds the assumption that because he has a girlfriend, there will be no romantic development on what will happen on the two of them. However, with her assumption shattered, she fears that something might happen to them. Well basically speaking, she believes that nothing would happen if she is with a guy with a lover. It is said on the 10th page of chapter 80 of the manga.
And this is the start of the yuri couple…
5. Yuri couple: Ayumu x Hina
Hina left her house only to see Ayumu.
And with the thought of not letting Ayumu form a misunderstanding about Hayate and Hina…
And the misunderstanding is formed…
She is an idiot. I think it is doubtful to call them newlyweds. But still, it is funny. Even the Voice of Heavens tried to correct her misunderstanding.
Hinagiku’s expression and her thought after hearing what Nishizawa said about her parents opened up some speculations by fans. This is an important key in developing Hinagiku’s character in the future… (It was used in the birthday arc)
And after talk about the plan and a Hina-san, the scene moved to Nagi and Maria. Then it ended.
The preview contained Shiranui and Isumi (with Sakuya). It seems to be progressing further and they seem to be near in finishing the 8th volume. Hopefully, I get to see Isumi in a non-kimono dress. And some “Keikaku dori” from Shiranui. I pity Tama.
