Taking place one month after the events that occurred in the movie Heaven is a Place on Earth. Living at the Sanzenin Mansion once again, Nagi returns to her old ways of life, until she receives word from American authorities informing her that she has a week to pick up her late father's belongings that was indefinitely delayed due to various circumstances. After receiving news of her father whom she doesn't remember, Nagi then meets a mysterious girl (with a hidden agenda) claiming to be Nagi's little sister.

The series tells a new story that is original to the anime and not directly based on the manga. The main author of the original series Kenjiro Hata personally created the original concept for the story of this anime.

You know what I want for Christmas this year? A butler. A personal butler to serve me and obey my every single command however, whenever, and whatever I want. Well, that's the feeling I got initially before I began watching the series. I was a fan of the original Hayate the Combat Butler franchise. Kenjiro Kata's writing and his works aren't the best in terms of story telling but can be a fun watch especially when you're having a bad day. Then, the news came when Kenjiro Hata decided to write a separate series of the original Hayate. Now, here we are...

The Hayate series has been going now for a relatively long time, the manga started running back in 2004, and had already added two anime series` to its name (one of which was 52 episodes long), but since 2009 we’ve had nothing really new from the Hayate franchise, except a pretty sub par movie in which nothing happened but whatever. The point is that it had been a while since anything substantially new came out, that was until we heard about this new series, cant keep my eyes off you, which was going to be entirely original, some of us got our hopes up, others read more

When people heard that the new season of Hayate no Gotoku would be an independent series instead of animating the Athena arc, many fans were disappointed (including me). This disappointment may have led to some fans having a bias against this season. However, even though this season wasn't nearly as good as the other seasons, it's also not as bad as some people may say.

The series starts off with a bunch of fillers, which the series really could have done without. The comedy in these episodes are very forced and although some of the jokes are funny, most of them fall flat on their face read more

Hayate no Gotoku! Can't Take My Eyes Off You Review

Yet another studio is producing the newest season of Hayate no Gotoku! The amount of detail of the background is amazing. Like the buildings actually look like that in person. It does lack extras on the sad note. The Strip is a crowded place. I have no idea why it was so deserted on this anime. Laziness perhaps? I still dislike the character design. Something about the hair strand in the middle of their faces bugs me. It is probably because it steals attention from the character's faces. The main theme songs sounded nice. You can read more
