Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 464 Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 464Hayate asks Konoha-chan if she has the button on her person, which she confirms, so after Hayate gives her a look-over, he concludes that she must be hiding the button in her large bosom. Hayate thinks about what to do, figuring a way to do this if it were Ah-tan, but looking at his watch, he knows he has to do something soon.

Konoha-chan asks what he is doing, and when he says he’s looking at a watch, she fries it with a million volt stun gun. She tearfully apologizes, saying it was in the rules for her job. Hayate isn’t happy, but she tells him she needs the ¥925 an hour to buy a present she promised her hungry little brother and a cake for her sick mother. She asks if he’s going to attack her and grope her chest. He says he’ll do whatever it takes.

She submits and tells him to go for it, but reminds him of her sick mother and hungry brother. He finds it hard to grope her and as he debates it in his mind, he imagines Aika giving him advice based on his recent beach experience and handling someone with a large chest. As Hayate thinks through the girls on the trip, he remembers the worthless Yukiji and the solution that Nagi came up with to solve the problem of her possession. As such, he offers ¥30,000 for the button.

A little later, Hayate emerges to the waiting Father Radiostar, telling him the button cost him ¥128,500.

Thoughts/Review:

Heh!heh!heh!  As usual, Hata-sensei is impossible to predict on where he’ll go.

Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 464

Konoha-chan’s sad tale is so over the top, I still can’t help but wonder if it is even real. I just can’t see even a poor girl sitting in some tiny room in a bikini for eight hours a day, waiting for someone to come and try to forcibly remove the button from her. At the same time, I can’t believe that such a girl would be more worried about someone coming in with a watch and destroying said watch than reporting the break in.

So yeah, I think Konoha-chan is a setup.  At this point, it doesn’t really matter, but we’ll see if she shows up again at the end of the arc and is revealed to be a regular (and well paid) employee of Mikado, who knows what Nagi, Ah-tan, and Hayate (and subsequently Isumi) are up to.

While the chapter was little more than an excuse to service Konoha-chan’s “huge tracks of land,” combined with servicing some of the other girls in the series, I was amused at the ultimate solution to Hayate’s problem — money. It was also amusing to have Aika show up in Hayate’s head with the solution to his problem. It was also amusing having Ah-tan, Hina, and others in Hayate’s head insulted by his contemplating their chest.

Beyond that, there’s not a lot I find to discuss about the chapter. Hayate has his button and assuming it works, he and Father Radiostar will be heading to their next bundle of fun.

  1. Never really thought that Konoha might be a setup. Maybe it’s coz I’m used to even weirder things being taken at face value in the season 1 anime. What I’m almost sure of though is that there’s no King’s Jewel waiting for Hayate at the end of this dungeon.

      And she may not be in the end. However, everything seems to convenient, and Hata-sensei is known to put in plot things, couched in a joke. That’s kinda how I see Konoha — Mikado testing to see how far Hayate will go for Nagi.

      Maybe. I do think that whether there is or isn’t a jewel at the end of the dungeon, Nagi gets back into the mansion.
