Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 519 Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 519Yukiji is given a cash card worth ¥2.46 billion (~$21.85 million) and Sister Sonia a card for ¥100 million.

At their hotel suite, Maria and Hayate are out on the balcony, discussing Nagi’s win and how Maria lost for the first time. Maria even notes that Nagi is now sleeping on her own, whereas before, she always had Maria sleep with her. As they chat, Hayate holds a King’s Jewel and hears Yukariko call to him with another request. Hayate asks if they’ve fulfilled their roles, to which Maria thinks that they have.

Elsewhere in Las Vegas, Tsugumi meets with Mikoto with plans to take the final King’s Jewel from Hayate. Mikoto tells Tsugumi to wait since Nagi’s butler won the Level 5 school trip. As such, she’s going to pay Hayate a visit.

Hayate is (apparently) hearing Yukariko’s voice again and looking at the King’s Jewel when Mikoto arrives and introduces herself, confirming she is Wataru’s mother. After kicking Hayate for looking like the man who married someone important to her (Nagi’s father), she gives him the two King’s Jewels she has as an apology. Mikoto believes Hayate has heard a godly voice and asks what she said to him.

Thoughts/Review:

Well, after a while away from the plot, the plot returns. No doubt, Hata-sensei would like to wrap this up as soon as possible and keep most of his focus on Ad Astra Per Aspera.

Yukiji has dreamed of having the kind of cash she has right now for many long years. It is almost weird seeing how sober she is with it. The normally greedy Yukiji has zero problem with Sister Sonia taking her cut. So will Hata-sensei come back with a gag chapter on Yukiji blowing everything, or will he make Yukiji a responsible adult for once? Frankly, I’d like to see the later. At the same time, I’d like to see her buy Kaoru-sensei a Gundam model. 😉

The plot thread of Nagi’s character growth continues fairly rapidly here with our being shown that Nagi is sleeping on her own. Now that Maria and Hayate are considering their roles pretty much fulfilled, I think we are looking at the manga ending in the not too distant future. That aside, I don’t think it will mean Maria will leave Nagi’s service as Nagi can afford to pay Maria a lot of money to remain her live in maid. Ditto Hayate as butler.

So now we know where Tsugumi originates in the manga — she’s employed by Mikoto. We still don’t know jack about her otherwise and I suspect that we never will.

As to Mikoto’s meeting with Hayate, initially, the vagueness of her wording in comparing Hayate to Yukariko’s husband (and Nagi’s father) made it seem as if he and Hayate were related somehow. However, after rereading it and reading other folks remark on it, Mikoto has to be comparing Yukariko with Nagi in that both fell for their butler.

Here’s a wild thought that hilariously popped into my head. (And by that, I am not offering this as a theory, but I will laugh my butt off if by some wacky chance, it came true.) What if Hayate is Nagi’s father? Don’t say that’s impossible, ’cause Hayate has already time traveled (I suspect, thanks in part to Yukariko). It has already been well established that Hayate looks like Yukariko’s husband. And it would explain why Nagi so easily trusted Hayate on an instinctive level. And Hayate could always tell Yukariko in the past that he’s someone different and from America. 😉

Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 519

That being said, Hayate gets pulled back into the past, say to steal the Kurotsubaki. (Remember that sword?) Yukariko pulls a gun on him, like in the anime, forces him to become her butler, and voilà — the rest is history (without the wood dryad element). It would also explain why Shimoda became an important place for a married ojousama and her husband to come to. It would explain why Yukariko is able to commune with Hayate so easily. It could explain why Hayate is not romantically attracted to Nagi and why Nagi’s feelings for Hayate, though real, never quite propel her to to the level of Ayumu or Hina when it comes to unrequited feelings for Hayate. It would explain why Nagi’s father looks so much like Hayate, Mikoto couldn’t refrain from kicking him.

Ha!ha! The more I thought about this, the more I liked it. It would be the ultimate twist. However, I don’t think for one instant that any of this will happen. But it would be hilarious if it did. 😆

In all seriousness though, it does appear that Yukariko is summoning Hayate to do something for her. It will be interesting to see what this something is.

In the end, this was an interesting chapter as we return to the plot. Hopefully, we can keep the plot going for a while. Since I think Hata-sensei wants to end the manga, I think we may get more focus on plot except for times when Ad Astra Per Aspera is taking his focus.

    Works for me, and it’s a more coherent/believable story than episodes 1-3. (^_~)

    Maria Kenobi, Nagi Skywalker, Yukiji Solo, Princess Hina, and Darth Hayate?

      😆 I needed a laugh before bed. ^_^

      • arimareiji says:

        I’m glad – sometimes laughter really is the best preventative medicine. (^_^)

        The more I think about it, I believe it really could work – either as a straight-up twist, or as someone’s extremely strange dream after a night at the movies watching Star Wars. (^_~) For the former, it would have to have been planned this way all along, because I’m not sure Hata-sensei would be willing to spend the time drawing the threads together even if it has been planned this way all along. (Not to mention it might be perceived as a Hideaki-Anno-type “Screw you” to the fans, all the more if it’s rushed.)

        For the latter, I think it could work – as long it’s either clear from the outset that it’s a parody, or it’s not prolonged enough to suffer from the Dallas effect. Depending on how it’s played, it could be a lot of fun to see Star Wars re-imagined as a harem comedy.

          *lol* Is Luke still the star?

          • arimareiji says:

            Nope. It’s Nagi Skywalker, Maria-wan Kenobi, Princess Hina et al trying to redeem Darth Hayate after he goes to the Dark Side* of Gag Manga. (^_~)

            I’m really looking forward to your review of 520, because I wonder what it means with respect to this theory.

            * – Strangely enough, I actually have been thinking for a while that Hayate’s been taking more and more “shortcuts” in pursuit of his goals lately (to a degree that it’s worrying some of his friends).

          • AstroNerdBoy says:

            My review is scheduled for Wednesday.

            Well, I think that’s more due to the fact that Hata-sensei is taking shortcuts to end the manga sooner rather than later. 😉

  2. federico says:

    What if Yukariko is alive somewhere(say in the royal garden with a magical telepathic device)

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Well, the only thing against her being at the Royal Garden is the fact that it is pretty well accepted that she’s dead. Mikado’s motivations for accessing the Royal Power does seem to be tied to Yukariko, it comes across as possibly bringing her back from the dead rather than rescuing her. We’ll see though.

    yukiji’s was not leaping at the card and also generously offered nun 100 million showed her chase after money has finally come to an end. it was similar to ctmeoy[as this arc is its replacement ]where she admits money is not most important thing. hina might get her cool sis back.

    ad astra is not the only reason he is working to end this manga. he has asked his his fans after mangaka arc if there is something that they want to see to make sure he does not miss anything. he also said at vol 30 hng is 60% complete.In one of the omakes nagi said to nadja it won’t even cross 50 volumes. so all this is not so sudden. if hng is published weekly as it should be then this manga might end with in a year.

    the part about nagi felt rushed but then i remembered that this whole trip she slept alone but hayate was in next room of course.her fear was psychological and may be in all this hoopla she forgot about it.

    yukariko is still a mystery and what federico said could be true and she actually is watching over nagi as a spirit by making that wish. there was also a panel of someone looking similar to yukariko standing at yukariko’s grave with her back towards the readers. which lead to theories that she is alive but may be it was yukariko at her husband’s grave coz she cant stage her death and abandon her only daughter. she is very much dead but i hope we see her more as a spirit. she was a fun person.

    coming to your theory not haha funny but still made me giggle. this theory has been there long since panel of nagi’s pop was published in manga and character from Hatsuo to now mikoto drawing parallel between hayate and shin. but for theory to come true hayate has to be a player. he has skills but is too much of an airhead to use it. but on a serious note it is not possible coz shin was an orphan. he was blonde and he was not not a Japanese decedent as hata mentioned in his blog. so there is no tie to hayate. but similarity between nagi’s parents backstory and her relation with hayate is obvious and not exactly subtle.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      I’d like this to be shown in the manga. 🙂

      yukariko is still a mystery and what federico said could be true and she actually is watching over nagi as a spirit by making that wish.

      There’s no doubt that Yukariko is watching over her daughter. ^_^

      coming to your theory not haha funny but still made me giggle.

      😀

      I had not heard others speak of this theory, but then CTMEOY seemed to explain Yukariko’s husband.

    Hey, listen!
    There’s a new Genshiken chapter out – Madarame slips deeper into the yaoi.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      NOOOOOO!

      *sigh*

      I’ll drag myself to read it eventually. It will be a depressing read though, based on what you’ve said here.

      • arimareiji says:

        If it makes it any easier to pick up Genshiken, nothing has been decided yet even with the chapter that just came out.

        At this point I’m waiting for someone to stop, look at Yoshitake, and ask – “Wait… why are we in such a hurry to decide this? You say it’s because it’ll cause tension in the circle if the harem isn’t resolved, but you yourself are the one who has been instigating all sorts of conflict and pushing this issue since you first brought up making Madarame decide. Why not leave them all the heck alone and let them figure it out themselves?”

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          If it makes it any easier to pick up Genshiken, nothing has been decided yet even with the chapter that just came out.

          Thanks for letting me know. Yeah, I have been somewhat avoiding it, but I’ll get around to reading it sometime. Maybe I’ll get a chance this weekend.

  5. Only tangentially-related to this chapter but… has anyone noticed that all the old hags in this manga look really attractive and young? We have Yukariko, Yukiji, Hatsuho, Kananiwa, Maria … and now Mikoto in Hata’s new art style.

    I read echhi fanfiction between mikoto and hayate
