That confession should've been sealed with a kiss. Guess we'll have to wait another chapter or so for that.
I just finished reading Useless Princesses before this and I was thinking "oh no, another one" when Honey suddenly had this "I don't deserve to be by your side" realization just before she was about to confess. Good thing Hayate put those doubts to rest.
Also, I don't mean to be that guy but uh...has there ever been any art, wholesome or horny, of these two outside of the series? I feel like fanart of Hayate and Honey - or any of them really - is nonexistent.
Honestly I was about to stop reading this manga if, like it seemed, there wasn't any confession. It would be forced drama from the author, since we had Honey drooling over Hayate all throughout the story and when she was about to confess she suddenly changed her mind. Like haven't you thought about these doubts before?
Plus we are already at chapter 20 and the yuri is very minimum. It's like trying to fill a glass of water from a sink that's only dripping one drop every hour.
I think there's gonna be a kiss in the end of the manga and that will be it. For some reason I don't think they'll start acting different now that they confessed. It's gonna be something like Citrus.
