Synopsis

An unfortunate high school student, Ayasaki Hayate spends his days working at part-time jobs to support his extravagant parents. After incurring a debt of 150 million yen, they disappear, and Hayate was left holding the bag. Whilst running away from the debt collectors, he tries to kidnap a girl for ransom (however, the girl misunderstands his intentions and thinks he is confessing his love to her). Almost immediately, he botches the kidnap attempt but then manages to save her from other kidnappers, causing her to fall in love with him. The girl, Sanzenin Nagi, is actually the daughter of a millionaire family. In recognition of his services, she hires Hayate as a resident butler and even pays off the debt collectors.

This is how Hayate becomes a combat butler. In order to serve and protect his mistress, Hayate's life-or-death butler life begins.

Hayate the Combat Butler targets a specific audience, and hits it dead-on. Hayate is for people who love rapid-fire gags and Japanese cultural references. Those looking for serious plots or extremely well-developed characters should look elsewhere.

That being said, Hayate the Combat Butler accomplishes what it sets out to do: Make you laugh. Sure, there's a little bit of a plot thrown in every now and then, and maybe a character or two makes a realization after 10 or so chapters, but the main focus is on the gags, and each characters' role in them. Character deliveries range from deadpan-humor to Manzai stand-up, and each one's read more

Story: It's very creative and original, albeit unrealistic, but not in a way that detracts from the series. It's a fairly simple slice-of-life type of story, but it's a very unusual life that the characters lead. This allows for plenty of interesting, crazy things to happen that flow well because the whole thing is interesting and crazy. The story is exciting and new, giving infinite possibility for the author to let loose with his creativity.

Art: The very pretty and distinct characters are fun to look at; again, the variety and uniqueness make it a great manga. There aren't many gorgeous glory read more

It pains me to see so many old reviews of Hayate no Gotoku! manga since this has changed drastically since the 300 chapters, so I decided to write one knowingly how bad I am to express myself and how bad I am for writing. So please bear with my writing. I am also sorry for all the grammar mistakes.

Before anyone comment on how I rated it higher in my list than this review, it is because one particuliar arc that was so great it forced me to keep a high score. In other words my rating in the list was more feeling wise and this read more

It's very difficult to categorize Hayate no Gotoku in a specific genre. On the surface it is most obviously a comedy, but of what type? Situational? Slap-stick? Dramatic? Parody? Hayate no Gotoku is in fact all of these, as author Kenjiro Hata seems to be ill content with sticking to a single source of comedy. The first chapter alone contains: the titular Hayate riding head first into a subway entrance, fighting off Yakuza, referencing biblical stories, referencing Gundam, and a cameo of Santa. All wrapped up in the 'poetic' first chapter title: "Santa's Red is a Blood Colored Hell," and we have a good point read more
