Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 446.1 (Extra) Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 446.1 MangaAfter Yukiji gets a ¥1 million summer bonus, she spends it all on lottery tickets, thinking she’d increase her money tenfold. She lost and Hina got angry with her.

Yukiji seeks the advice of Aika, wanting to know why she’s not rich when there are tons of rich people out there. Aika ends up directing Yukiji to Warren Buffets books. Yukiji decides to become an investor and read what Warren Buffet read on securities. However, it is too complicated for Yukiji, who had assumed that the rich just got rich without doing anything.

After all of this, Yukiji doesn’t have money to invest, amazing Aika in the process. So, Yukiji tries to borrow money from Hina again, resulting in Hina telling her off. Yukiji calls Hina a second time to ask for the money and shift the blame for Yukiji’s desire to get into the stock market on Aika. Aika has to call Hina to set things straight.

Yukiji decides to ask for an advance and scores a nice amount. Aika is horrified, knowing how enraged Hina will be if Yukiji loses it. Yukiji assures Aika it will be fine, having read Warren Buffet’s book again, saying she’ll be careful and that working hard is important to getting rich.

After carefully taking everything into consideration, Yukiji decides to invest in lottery tickets since everyone will still want lottery tickets in fifty years. Aika is horrified and leaves, while Yukiji won nothing.

Thoughts/Review:

Well, talk about a disappointing chapter as Hata-sensei leaves us hanging with Hina, Hayate, and Ah-tan on the island of death and goes for a pure filler story.

Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 446.1 Manga

While I consider Warren Buffet to be a hypocrite for getting rich, then buying indulgence from the correct politicians to keep his name off of the “evil rich” list, then endorsing policies to make it harder for the rest of us to get rich (through punitive taxes), the notion of having to work to get rich is spot on.

Most folks would like to be rich, but few of us (myself included) are willing to do what it takes to get there.  A lot of people who become rich (or in Warren Buffet’s case, wealthy) did so because they had a passion they followed; or they saw an opportunity to fill a need, took a risk and did what it took to fill that need, then became rich. Risk taking is scarey. Not everyone is equipped to do that.

I think the rich folks who interest me the most are those who didn’t go to college, followed their dreams, worked hard, and then years later (usually in mid-life or so), they achieved their goal. Often, these folks suffered huge setbacks and were dirt poor at times. But they never gave up.\

Anyway, as to this chapter, Yukiji was Yukiji so nothing surprising there.

Aika was kind of surprising. A small part of this is due to Hata-sensei’s current, simplistic character designs (Aika looks mostly like Nagi now, only with different hair).  Aika had none of her old, sadistic aspects to her.

Not only that, but Aika was afraid of Hina’s wrath. That’s a first.

Otherwise, a “meh” chapter for me, primarily because I was looking forward to seeing what would happen next on murder island.

  1. Actually, almost all the female characters and Hayate have the same face now except for a few with distinct facial features.
    Disappointed in this chapter as well, but at least it looks like the next chapter will be a proper one.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Yeah, I hate it when manga-ka go that route. I realize that a more simplistic character design is easier to draw, but it makes the characters less interesting. The worst offender of that was Takaya-sensei in Fruits Basket.

  2. Bill says:

    Actually, of the 447 chapters to date, I thought this one was the funniest. I thought the characterization of Buffet-sama was uproarious.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Interesting. For me, I think the funniest chapter (or chapters) being the mountain climbing trip and the giant bear. The funniest moment was when Fumi tries to wake up Nagi. *lol* But that’s just me. ^_^

  3. […] out of the blue was completely unexpected. However, Hata-sensei isn’t letting the events of chapter 446.1 go to waste. […]
