After 10 years, are we nearing the end?
Does anyone even remember Himegami?
Time to clean up the story.
Hata please. The All Blue is Mermaid Cove.
10 years ago Hata said he'd only tell Maria's backstory when the series entered it's final arc.
Even if it's the final arc, it'll still take 6 years to finish the story because of all the gags and cameos they'll throw in. Like one more nun chapter where she tries to ntr Saki.
And that's all folks.
Hata might just rush things to an end because it's a gag manga and he could get away with that.
longtime hayate reader. love that the plot is moving forward. scared that we're at the end all of a sudden. i'm not ready.
I don't think it'll end anytime soon. The King's Jewels are probably going to be sidelined in a few chapters again.
And Maria's story is something Hata's wanted to tell for a long time. She is the woman Hayate was fated to meet, after all.
Wait. Himegami hasn't appeared yet? I don't remember how many years I dropped it.
In the manga, Himegami has never appeared. I'm reasonably certain he stopped being mentioned around volume 9, but I skipped a huge chunk of chapters between 150 and 300.
The ring has returned, I can't remember what chapter it was and I don't remember if A-tan was sadden he had "lost" it because of his dead-beat parents.
Suddenly a lot of things got answered
Oh, so that's what it was.
Yeah, she gave him a ring and he left to tell his family or something and they took the ring for safe keeping (?) but then they sold it. I wish I knew the chapter.

Really? Then that was anticlimactic as fuck.
Although that might have just been a piece of it.
