Hayate the Combat Butler Manga Chapter 382

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Hayate the Combat Butler Manga Chapter 382As Ruka changes behind him, Hayate considers how Ruka is a very cute idol. She finishes changing, then realizes that the two of them are alone as she turns to allow Hayate to change. She peeks back and sees Hayate putting on his butler uniform. She protests the fact that he’s wearing his butler outfit since he’s supposed to be resting like her, but since this is his only other outfit, Ruka has to concede.

Ruka asks how Hayate became a butler. He tells the story of how his parents sold him to the yakuza over a massive gambling debt. However, Nagi had offered him a job as her butler, paying for his whole debt with her pocket money, and saving him when no one else cared.  Ruka likes Hayate’s story, comparing her debt story to his.

As Hayate goes to make something to eat for them, Ruka considers that Hayate’s experiences are why he’s able to help others without giving thought to his own safety. Feeling her overwhelming feelings of love for Hayate, she calls his name and when he turns around, she kisses him.


I had thought that Hata-sensei might pull the gag with Isumi still lurking around, but apparently he did have her go off with Ayumu and Chiharu.

So, we get a serious chapter with Ruka’s feelings for Hayate growing after learning of his debt story, which is much worse than hers since Hayate was literally sold to the yakuza, while Ruka was simply left with a debt.  I liked the moment, and I liked Ruka’s response.

As to what happens, I think we all understand that Hayate will acknowledge finding her attractive, but will remember Athena and Nagi, thus will turn Ruka down.

Unfortunately, we’ve got a couple of weeks to wait before we find out what happens next. ^_^;

So, this is a sweet chapter that leaves us with quite a cliffhanger.
