Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 465 Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 465After raising the bridge and crossing the lava, Father Radiostar and Hayate soon find themselves in an opulent, open area with pillars and giant, double doors. The doors open and Hayate’s next opponent emerges — Klaus. Klaus denies having expected Hayate and been waiting for him there, claiming that he’s working part-time and that had Hayate come the following day, Klaus wouldn’t have been there.

Klaus says that even though eight months have passed, he still hasn’t accepted Hayate as Nagi’s butler. As such, he challenges Hayate to a sword fight. Hayate takes a sword from a nearby suit of armor and warns he won’t hold back. Klaus says he won’t hold back either. With that, the two attack, but Hayate catches Klaus’s blade with the stun gun. Activating it at maximum power, the electric shock knocks Klaus down and he is defeated.

Moving on, Hayate finds the King’s Jewel in a display case. Father Radiostar notes a pocket watch in another display. Hayate asks what time it has, but the ghost priest isn’t sure the watch is accurate.

Thoughts/Review:

Well, we haven’t seen Klaus in forever. As is usual for Hata-sensei, he brings in the unexpected.  It is easy to say, “expect the unexpected,” but with Hata-sensei, the choices for the unexpected are so vast, it is impossible to expect anything much.

Hayate’s solution to defeating Klaus with the stun gun he scored from Konoha was the unexpected moment. However, that’s what makes it so funny.  Hata-sensei sets up the big buildup, but then even though we expect something, we never know what to expect. It was certainly unexpected to have Hayate produce the stun gun.

I don’t believe Klaus’s explanation that he was just working a part-time. First, there’s no way that Klaus isn’t paid well for being head butler. Second, as I mentioned in the previous chapter, everyone being here waiting for Hayate is just too convenient. I honestly think that Mikado is staging this whole thing to see how far Hayate will go for Nagi.

The pocket watch Father Radiostar found is similar to the Kuro-tsubaki. Granted, as a pocket watch, this is not to be unexpected.

However, I do think there is something about it. It is generally assumed that the events of Can’t Take My Eyes Off You are canon, which is where the Kuro-tsubaki was actually shown. Nagi’s father took it to America. If I had to guess, I’d say the watch Father Radiostar found is probably just holding the spot of the original Kuro-tsubaki.

Regardless, I’m liking the fast pace of things and can’t wait to see what happens next. ^_^

    I am quite excited about how Hata-sensei will weave the “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” into the manga storyline. It seems that the clock shown indeed is a fake as a placeholder for the Black Camelia, since that clock is supposedly in a vault in Las Vegas; but Shin died 13 years ago and it seems weird that the police will keep holding on it for that much time without informing Sanzenin household.
    These last two chapters have been great fun to read.

    In previous chapter when Hayate came out with the remote, Father Radiostar, who usually looks aloof was very interested in knowing if Hayate got the remote. In this chapter, Klaus appears after so much time. In recent chapters many characters make appearences after prolonged absences. I am looking forward to

    BTW, I had commented on Chapter 456 review that apparently the seiyuu were changed in the Tenth Anniversary OVA.
    Recently, I was able to obtain the DVD, and I found that my friend was mistaken and the seiyuu are not changed. Personally, I liked the OVA 1, the narrator is back ^_^.
    More importantly, the single flashback panel in chapter 267 has been expanded to a 25 second flashback of the events when Athena was possessed by King Midas. As little as it may be, I am happy to see more animation of “Hayate no Gotoku!”. 🙂

    As you noted, things are indeed getting faster and interesting. ^_^

      I can’t remember how Nagi found out in the first place. I guess it is possible that the police just didn’t know whom to contact.

      I haven’t been able to watch these, but at least the seiyuu are the same. ^_^

      Thanks! I think I now know where that bird mascot character is supposed to be from — Gundam-san.

  2. Well, at least (all?) most of us blogging this manga agree that the pocket watch probably isn’t the Kurotsubaki. One thing that someone on facebook pointed out is that Nagi pretty much confirmed the canon status of CTMEOY by referring to it in chapter 400.

    Poor Klaus hasn’t had an appearance since I started covering this manga (lawlz, I think it’s been over a year) and Hayate quickly dispenses with him using a “cheap shot.” I have to point out that it’s nearly-impossible to parry a sword with a stungun though… but this is Hayate who stopped an effin sword with his fingers we are talking about after all.

      And Hata-sensei wrote that anime (at least, the outline for the main story), so I consider it canon for that aspect.

      *lol* Very true.
