Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 527 Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Hayate the Combat Butler Chapter 527 Hayate and company begin their search of the tower. However, somehow, Izumi gets separated from the group and Isumi disappears completely, unnoticed by the others. The group decide that they need to find clues and come up with a plan to make the search better and so take off, leaving the forgotten Izumi behind.

Izumi, who’s alone, afraid, and hungry, sits and tries to comfort herself that the others will come for her. However, she then discovers a human skull and bone fragments, causing her to freak out. Elsewhere, Miki and Risa discuss the possibility of there being ghosts in the clock tower based on the the ghost stories surrounding the old school building.

Back with Izumi, she collects herself and takes inventory of the stuff with her, which includes candy, cookies, and other stuff, including her smart phone. She decides to use the light of her phone as a flashlight, but it quickly goes out because of a lack of battery power. She gets angry with herself for not using her phone to make a call for help. After a moment of doubt, she collects herself and decides to find the exit to the tower.

Because of the nature of Yukariko, Nagi asks Hatsuho whom Yukariko knew who were clever and skillful. Nagi is surprise to learn that Klaus meets those requirements. She decides to call her head butler, only to have Hisui answer the phone. Hisui has Klaus bound and tells Nagi they should have a chat over tea.

Thoughts/Review:

It is almost weird seeing how Hata-sensei feels this overwhelming need to do gag chapters, yet he is managing to continue to push the plot forward.

The gag stuff with Izumi wasn’t funny to me. I like Izumi, but she’s been the butt of these “useless” kind of jokes too many times for my tastes.

On the other hand, I got a chuckle out of the missing Isumi, mainly because Hata-sensei went out of his way to keep pointing out that she was missing.

A missing Isumi means she’s about to get into the thick of things, one way or the other. She might rescue Izumi, after Izumi stumbles onto the key or something else important.  (Of course Hata-sensei might have Izumi just be forgotten as a gag joke, which he’s done before.) Isumi might show up if Hisui does (or attempts to do) something bad to Nagi and I’ll get my Isumi vs Yozora rematch.

Speaking of Hisui, is it me, or is Hata-sensei making her scarier looking?

So while most of the gag stuff was mostly not funny to me, I appreciated that Hayate the Combat Butler chapter 527 continues to push the plot forward.

    It’s good that the plot is going forward, but I feel like the author is not giving the same love to this manga as before Ad Astra started. I’m not saying the effort is less, but to me is like he is beating it to death, slowly. The majority of long running mangas that end, tend to go fast (axed or not), so this is an exception, and I’m not so sure if I like it this way.

    Mostly because I get the feeling that once Christmas comes, it ends. And we will not know what happened after that on detail, maybe just an epilogue or a chapter with a time skip of sorts. And I think that everything is somehow resolved, as Hata sensei is burning fast the foreshadowing routes and filling his plot holes with fast concrete.

      I agree. The demands on Hata-sensei’s time must be enormous in trying to carry off two manga titles. Since it is clear he wants to end HnG, we are rapidly moving through. I just hope he finishes it properly.

  2. I am fine with these developments (as well as with the next chapter… which is taking an awfully long time to come out for the English release. I hope the translator isn’t losing steam.)

    As for the developments, they’re not the ideal I have in my mind, but I still have faith in Hata to write a competent ending, at the very least.

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      Hopefully there’s a competent ending. Nothing kills a manga harder than a horrible ending.
