Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 517 Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 517With Wataru’s doujinshi shop doing so well, Wataru decides to pay Saki a ¥500 thousand bonus. She’s reluctant to take it, but since Wataru knows this might not happen often, he encourages her to take some time off and spend the money on herself.

After putting ¥300 thousand into savings, Saki goes to Ginza to and looks at many expensive things, all of which she can afford. She happens upon a a sushi place, which she presumes is expensive. However, she believes a true Japanese would get sushi upon getting a bonus.

Deciding to be brave, she enters and orders a chilled, dry saki (nihonshu no karachi o hiya) like an adult. Proud of her success, Saki then blows it when the sushi chef asks what she doesn’t like, and she answers “spicy curry.” After a drink, Saki starts enjoying her sashimi, then she realizes that the walls of this sushi restaurant do not have menu items or prices like normal places do. However, she decides not to worry about it and then proceeds to eat sushi. She comes home drunk, announcing the Wataru hat she’s an adult woman now.

Thoughts/Review:

Har! Well, it is filler time, so this time up, it is Saki.

Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 517

I’m glad that we got a peek on how Wataru’s business is coming along. And I’m glad that his business is coming along well. It has been a while since we’ve seen them, but it didn’t seem to be doing all that well before. Maybe I’m not remembering things properly.

As to Saki, I got a chuckle out of her Ginza adventure to becoming a true adult. (Legally, she already is an adult, but she does have a kind of childish personality at times.) I’m not a sushi person myself (some is OK), but I have friends who love it for celebrations, so I understand her sentiment.

Beyond that, nothing else to say. It is clear to me that this filler is due to Ad Astra Per Aspera taking most of Hata-sensei’s focus.

    another slice of life chapter, i cannot complain but the timing is off. it was an interesting point in manga with hayate giving some thought to his job and his requirement in future but as if now, hata working that angle seems bit unlikely.

    hata sensei has been stalling for over a month which gives me the impression that he might be working on something big .i hope in coming chapters we get to see :
    himegami and find out the reason why he quit.he has been teased from vol 1 but has not appeared even after 517 chapters.

    athena going back to normal as 3 months have past. it will definitely make things more interesting.

    plz hata make this happen.

      Ad Astra Per Aspera 😉 I think that’s where all his focus is since that manga is plot driven with gags on the side, whereas Hayate the Combat Butler he’s always seen as a gag manga with plot on the side.

        Nope, it’s obviously because Daesh keeps stealing his manuscripts at the last minute. This forces Hata-sensei to pull out quickie filler that he’s been saving, then add a detail or two to make it seem current. Damn you, Daesh. (^_~)

          Or at least, that’s the story I’m going with. That story has a sad ending when they finally threaten Hata-sensei into giving up Hayate no Gotoku because some grumpy old man they listen to decided HnG is immoral*, but it has a happy note in that he can continue with a new manga.

          At least imo, it beats the heck out of the story where he unceremoniously dumps HnG because reasons. (Let alone the story where we learn that the AAPA characters are actually the super-homonculi and homonculae of Hayate, Nagi, Hina, et al… who apparently failed miserably in their quest to make the world a better place.)

          ~~~~~

          * – Probably because he ate too many prunes the night before, had a terrible case of gas, and was in a foul mood. That’s usually how these things play out.**

          ** – Says the grumpy old man who didn’t eat too many prunes the night before, but always finds other reasons to be dark anyway. (^_~)

            😆 That just made me laugh. ^_^
