• Note: Ok, so some of the translations may not be direct or exact translation because I switched the word orders or paraphrased for better sentence flow in English grammar or slang, but the overall meaning will remain the same. Sometimes I’ll use the slash “/” for when I can’t decide an exact English word to use and put a couple choices. Sentences in parentheses are my opinions or translator’s notes/explanations for some parts or scenes, and maybe on occasion a commentary on the situation (you guys just decide whether to put those in for fun/humor or not, for the none-t/n ones). Different/separate sentences in connected bubbles or boxes will also be in new lines. New lines with no speaker indicated in the front means they have the same speaker as the line above.


P1

Left margin: because someone else made the bento especially for you, you won’t feel alone even when you are having lunch by yourself… However…!!

Ruka: I never knew…
That bento can taste this good…

But I just don’t feel right…
To keep eating something this good for free…

I’ll go wait at the delivery box early…
And thank her personally tomorrow…!!

Box: however, in the following morning…
What Ruka saw while hiding around the delivery box was…

P2

Ruka: ……

Butler ——
—— uniform?

A guy…?

P3

Title: Maids can detect the scent of secrets, so nothing interesting can hide from them. Chapter 324: “How Do Maids Kill Time…?”

P4

Maria: hahhh ~~

It’s so boring while Hayate and the others are away in school… (Well, I’d say that Maria could go be a teacher at Hakuou, and also bring back a little more income too…)
There’s no one around to prank on/mess with ~~…
SFX: bubble, bubble

Maria: perhaps…
I’ll just go have some fun at the karaoke ~~…

Doorbell: ding dong
SFX: surprised (Wow, haven’t seen the fox ear and tail since Machina interrupted A-tan and Hayate in Athens…)

Maria: coming ♥
Who is it? ♥
SFX: delighted

P5

Maria: !
Ah…

You are…?
Ruka: Hello there…
We haven’t met before, I’m Suirenji.

Maria: oh yeah…
Chiharu-san’s friend, I believe…?
Ruka: yes, that’s it… Thank you for always taking care of her!!

Maria: so Suirenji-san, what brings you here…?
Chiharu-san is currently in school…

P6

Ruka: well, um… I didn’t come for Chiharu-san today…
I came here to see Miss Hayate…
Maria: Miss…
Hayate?

Background text: In an instant, the maid came to realize ——
Well, by the looks of things, Hayate must have gotten himself into some sort of trouble with girls again…

Maria: well, I’m sorry, but…
Did Hayate-san…
Cause any trouble again?
Ruka: no…! Of course not…!!
There is no trouble concerning her at all!!

I’ve been under her care for a while…
And I know this is not a proper thing to ask, but…!!

But… Is Hayate-san actually…
Maria: actually…?

P7

Ruka: is Hayate-san…
Actually a guy?!
Or is she a girl who enjoys cross-dressing…?!

Maria: …… (Yep, Maria took the expression right out of my face… XP)

… eh?
Ruka: I know, I know! I asked something really strange!!

How can someone that cute possibly be a guy…?!
But I can’t come up with any other explanation…

Because this morning…
I saw Hayate-san in a butler’s uniform…

P8

Ruka: Just tell me, does Hayate-san…
Actually have a habit of wearing guy’s clothes…?!

Maria: ……

Well, she is definitely…
The girl who was hugging Hayate that night…

Hayate was in a dress at the time…
So if she only saw Hayate in dresses since then, it’s only natural that she’d mistake him for a girl… (Her deduction) (Note: the parenthesis text before this one is part of the text, not my comment…)

And then… She saw Hayate in his butler uniform for the first time this morning…

Then she would conclude that Hayate is not a guy, but a girl who likes to cross-dress… But to believe in all this, is this girl actually ——

P9

Super naïve? (Bingo! Right on target there Maria…)
Maria: ……
Ruka: I… I’m sorry…
I know I asked something really weird…!!

Maria: geez, Hayate-kun…
Looks like you did get into some kind of interesting trouble again ~~…

Box: At this moment, the talented and intelligent maid thought it over…
Maria: although it’s really simple to just tell her that Hayate is actually a guy…
But it feels that it would lead to more trouble…

So, for the sake of Hayate’s future…
I should probably cover for him for now… (Honestly, I think that everything would’ve been better if she just let out the truth here… The longer the problem builds up, the worse it’d be when the truth is out…)
Box: such wisdom, as expected of the strongest maid in the Sanzen’in household!!

P10

Maria: well, it is true that…
Hayate often wears…
Butler uniforms…

But, I’m not entirely sure if he likes to cross-dress…
It’s probably best if you ask him directly… (Nice, Maria told her the truth without spilling anything specific… -_0)
Ruka: Is… is that so…?

Maria: but to think that she still doesn’t believe that Hayate’s a guy after seeing him in his butler uniform…
This Suirenji girl…

Is definitely a very simple…
And naïve little girl ~~…
Ruka: ……

But how should I approach him…
To find out the truth…?

P11

Maria: well ~~

If you wish to go ask him right now…
Then you can borrow these…

Ruka: ……
This is…?
SFX: take out

Maria: Hayate and the others are still in school right now…
So…

Here is a Hakuou Academy uniform…
And student ID. ♥ (Oh my… Maria just set up a big, ticking time bomb… Looks like she really does enjoy messing with others… -_-bb)

P12

Ruka: so this is…
Hakuou Academy… (Nice, I know it’s only a matter of time before we see Ruka in Hakuou uniform… ^_^)

Am I…
A high school student right now…?
SFX: doki/thump

SFX: roll, roll

Baseball player: sorry about that, can you throw it back please?

P13

Ruka: of course. ♥

SFX: doki/thump

SFX: land

Ruka: ok, later then. ♥
Player: ……

Um…
Yeah…?

Has such as cute girl… been in our school the whole time…?
No… This is the first time I ever saw her…

P14

Ruka: hmm… well…
I shouldn’t walk around campus too much…
I might get spotted by some fans in this school…

Ah…
Right…

If I recall correctly, Chiharu is in the student council…
And she mentioned that the student council room in at the top of the tower…

Hina: so everyday…
Doing all the butler works while going to school and taking a part-time job…
As well as managing the health of an idol…

You are going to die, you know? (Yep, Hina speaks all of our minds for Hayate…)
Hayate: nah ~ it’s not that bad, you are overreacting ~~

P15

Hina: while you may think everything will be fine, Hayate-kun…
Something is bound to happen if you keep everything up like this…

There is a break room over there…
Go get some rest. (Yay for Hata finally drawing someone concerned for Hayate’s health…)
Hayate: eh? But…

Hina: no but!! Get some rest when your body demands it!!
Hayate: o – ok!!

Geez…
Hinagiku-san always worries too much ~~~ (Trust me Hayate, she does not, at least not on this occasion… -_-)

But come to think if it, this is the first time I’m going to the break room in this school…
I didn’t know there is such a room in this tower…
But I guess it’s not surprising, with such a big campus…

P16

Hayate: wow, it even has a big public bath.
Well, this is a rare occasion, so I may as well try it ~~~ (You know, I have the feeling that Hata specifically added this place in the tower just to set up the trouble for Hayate in the short future when Ruka comes to see him…)

Box: meanwhile…

Ruka: so this is…
The Hakuou Clock Tower…
Box: to be continued next time…

Bottom: to be continued in issue 30 on June 22nd…

Right margin: it’s difficult to reject the temptation of a bath… The idea of a cross-dressing girl, in front of a public bath, is just a dangerous time bomb ready to detonate at any minute…

Promo Pic

(We’ll use all three panels of the last page…)

Hayate: alright, I lent her my dress as a good luck charm…
So she should be fine during her test…

Box: SAT testing day…

Ruka: ok…
I’m ready… Definitely ready…
Box: she is filled with confidence.
