In the February issue of Dengeki Daioh, the Hayate x Blade chapter was a gag about the upcoming Drama CD.
In that issue, Amachi Hitsugi, the chairman of the school, president of the student council and all-around perfect rich girl, decided to write the script for a Drama CD. Hitusgi forces her shinyuu/partner to comandeer various characters to record the CD. Mayhem breaks out, as is typical for a HxB chapter. :-)
The March issue of Dengeki Daioh includes a mini Drama CD for HCB, which is meant to be the “mayhem breaks out” part of the previous comic that’s taking place inside the recording studio.
I picked up this month’s issue with what I am sure was an otaku creepy “ohmigodohmigod!” face on, even if the woman at Sanseido smiled at me and pretended not to notice. ^_^’
As *soon* as we got in the car I slammed that baby into the CD player! The mini CD is 13 minutes or so long and it’s brilliant! Of course.
I won’t go on and on about how perfect the seiyuu are, or how funny the script was – except for this moment. When Hayate forces Ayana to read the title of the drama. “Hayate and Ayana’s sexy weekend” in English, I almost died laughing.
Oh, and this moment – when Momoka calls to Isuzu to say that they should leave (Momoka calls Isuzu “Wanko”) – “Come on Wanko.” Isuzu responds, “Wherever, forever.”
And I won’t go on about the BGM, which was hysterical in the extreme – and gets all romantic violins when Hitsugi is telling Shizuku that she wants to take her to a nice, romantic restaurant, just the two of them…
No. I won’t talk about any of those things. Or about the scene when Jun and Hayate are crawling on top of each other to try and find out which one of them Ayana wants more as a lover.
And I absolutely won’t rant about how the music changes and before she even spoke I KNEW Yukari had come “on screen”. Or how Ayana became a blushy, stuttering freak. LOL
All I’m gonna say is – there’s no doubt at ALL, that any real or implied Yuri in Hayate Cross Blade is amplified here to its fullest.
