- That "randomness" aspect
- Fighting in both animes are usually serious, but they both throw in some aspect to make it less tense, like a funny scene of some sort
- Breaking the fourth wall MANY times in both animes
- Many cameo's and parodies/ mentions of other animes/ shows/ real life references
Both have the same style of humor that revolves around parodies and breaking the 4th wall. Both Hayate and Gin have to do odd tasks because of their jobs. Both are good if you want to watch a good parody anime that relies more on telling jokes throughout the plot than....the plot itself (though Gintama's parodies could be more obscure at times if you do not follow Japanese programming)
It is a anime which is heavily based on parodies of other anime and manga. The style of the humor is very similar. If you loved Hayate no Gotoku, you will love Gintama. For example, in Hayate no Gotoku, the anime sets the audiance to be a part of the show. They often use the audience as a reference as well. It is the same for Gintama.
the plot and background itself have nothing to do with each other but both are great parody series as well as comedy in general. some some of the funniest animes you could possibly watch and both also occasionally have action. Gintama may be more aimed at a bit of a older audience as far as the jokes are concerned but if you watch one you really should watch the other since both are great comedies. also Gin and Hayate are somewhat similar being the character that can come out on top of any predicament so if you like one you really should watch the other since odd's are you will enjoy it ^^ read more
You want animes with a bunch load or references? have you watched a decent amount of animes which include a broad variety of generes?
or are you completly new to anime?
well either side to it, these animes are a must watch
for people who've watched anime: there's a hell of a lot of references, including specific types of anime and shows
for newbie anime fans: these 2 are like an "anime for dummies" book/anime. your "learn" a bit about anime from here.
Hayate The Combat Butler and Gintama are purely winners at parodying other animes even beeping some of the references related to the anime itself. Oh yeah, Nagi-jo-sama and Kagura shared the same seiyuu
Butler-mistress relationship, anime tributes, ecchi moments, and parts that will make you laugh quite much. It should be noted that KimiAru has more comedy that comes from ecchi, while Hayate is mostly based on anime tributes. Also, Hayate is more age-friendly and has a far more powerful seiyuu cast.
They both have a similar style of hummor
Both have as there main characters that are newly hired butlers and they both got the job by helping there female master with out knowing who they where
Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de it basily Hayate the Combat Butler but Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de is more... how to said they this... is aimed at a more mature age and it doesnt have the annoying brat
Both main characters of these series are working as butlers, and somehow they were in need of something (either work or money). Ren is a bit similar to Hayate as well (personality). At least the first episode it reminded me a lot to Hayate no Gotoku!, just older people instead of kids.
Both about overpowered butlers, both have alot of referencing to other animes and Japanese culture, both have quite a bit of fanservice (not so much in hayate the combat butler) and alot of the characters are very similar, both very funny.
Both are similar because of the Master and Servant role it plays and also the comedy and parody it holds. The only thing different is... THE ART AND THE NUMBER OF MASTERS THEY ARE MY NOBLE MASTERS HAS! xD
main character is a butler- check
horrible parent(s) - check
master is a girl - check
a loli main character master - check
masters have a rich friend that comes to visit often - check
weird and horribly overpowered butler chiefs - check, with a mustache! - double check
references to other animes - check
mascots that shouldnt be talking, yet the are - check
maids, butlers, and masters all around - and we have a winner!
Voice Actor for Nagi and Louise is the same and in both the main male character serves the main female character. The main female characters share almost the same personality and the male character is forced to save her several times.
Very similar in many ways. First, in both of them main character (a male, of course) was "sucked" into other world... In Zero it's a magic, alternative world, and in Hayate it's simply the world of rich people. Second, Hayate's personality is very, very similar to Saito's. Third, the main male characters are both poor, and they have to protect very rich girl, who starts to love them...
And the last - same seiyuu. Nagi = Louise.
Louise and Nagi are both considered ojou-sama, tsunderes, and voice by the same actress. Both Louise and Nagi, have the servant and master position down the letter and as the story progress, they start to ease up on their male counterparts.
if you look at these two, you wont see alot of resemblance to each other, other then the fact that they have alot of comedy.
but for me its similar on one point because both male leads have their lives changed because of one annoying-loli-girl being introduced to them, causing their whole lives to change in a good way and meeting lots of friends.
Although the story and setting of these two works is quite different, the relationships between the lead female and the lead male characters are very similar. In both cases, the female is in a position of privilege and the male is initially a servant to her, but over time they develop strong bonds between them.
Both are wacky over-the-top comedy anime that don't take themselves too seriously. They're done by the same studio, so the animation is very similar. You might also hear some of the same seiyuu, and the soundtracks are composed by the same person.
Zettai Karen Children replaced Hayate in it's timeslot, but besides that... there are hints of 4th wall comedy in ZKC and Hayate is primarily 4th wall humor. Finally.. both are directed by the same person
Both are done by the same animation production company; Synergy SP. They also share a few of the seiyuu casts. Several characters also make some cameos in a few episodes. Finally, both are fun to watch.
Hayate no Gotoku and Zettai Karen Children have pretty much same kind of sense of humour. Plots are not similar at all, but if you found Hayate no Gotoku funny, you could like Zettai Karen Children too.
Both of these are action and comedy series and both of these also have some parodies (in Zettai Karen Children you can spot some of Hayate no Gotokus characters). These two animes were also directed by same person.
If you liked Hayate no Gotoku or Zettai Karen Children you might enjoy the other one also.
For starters, both series has great comedy that is presented in a lighthearted mood with a fun sense of humor.
The series' main female protagonist has similar personalities who often wants to be the center of things and relying on the main protagonist. They have a strange relationship. As time goes on, it seems that the female protagonist from both series holds affections for the main main protagonist.
Both series has humorous dialogues that are sometimes over exaggerated as well.
Both series has drama, comedy, and some emotions at times in various episodes.
Maid-Master relationship in HiMM and Butler-Mistress relationship in Hayate, ecchi, comedy (and young girls, for those of you loli lovers xD) It should be noted that Hayate's art is better and has a more powerful seiyuu cast than HiMM.
HiMM looks more similar to HnG! than Kimiga Aruji because of the crazyness and the dynamism it has inside. The developments are about the same—butler/maids. It's the same battle where debt is the reason for having the characters continue together.
The voice actress for Nagi and Astarotte are the same.
Though Naoya's specific job is that of a member of Astarotte's harem, he seems to function more as a sort of butler.
The overall feel of a master/servant environment is evident in both series.
Watching the first two episodes is enough to notice some similarities between Astarotte no Omocha! and Hayate no Gotoku!
First physically, both (Nagi and Astarotte) are small-sized, blonde haired and green-eyed. After this, behaviors, both are a little bit selfish and distant at the start (Tsundere in other word). You'll also notice that both feel lonely in their vast realm (mansion in Nagi's case). To conclude on girls, both have Rie Kugimiya for voice actress.
Hayate and Naoya are especially similar in behavior, they'll do anything to satisfy their little master, to summarize they are totally devoted. They are both involved in a world that they don't know.
Hayate no Gotoku! is more focused on humor and anime/manga references. read more
As original manga reader, Astarotte is very similar to Hayate the Combat Butler, both have a ojou-sama and a servant, the relationship is pretty much the same moreover with the tons of ridiculous and crazy secondary characters that will appear in the next episodes.
Astarotte no Omocha! and Hayate no Gotoku! have many same things. First of all, the setting is pretty much the same: a blonde, rich-tsundere girl encounters with blue-haired guy/boy, who becomes her butler. Both shows also follow the relationship between the butler and the girl, giving also hints of romance between them. Also, the main girl is voiced by Rie Kugimiya, and the butler is voiced by girl in both series.
However, there are also couple of different things: while Astarotte has more fanservice (ecchi) plus colorful and bright animation, Hayate concentrates more on school-life, and doesn't have that bright animation (expect in the second season). Although, Hayate also has parodies really many shows while Astarotte doesn't do parody of anything. The comedy is also pretty much different. read more
Without a doubt both series have their similarities, such as how both Hayate and Harima are completely oblivious to the feelings of their secret lovers. If you're into upbeat, crazy, hilarious situations, then School Rumble is definitely worth a shot.
Both series are about a butler who desires to protect their masters no matter what trouble he/she shall face. Both have a very slice-of-life feel but gradually develops the storyline at a good pace at the same time. The master of the two series share multiple similarities too, both being extremely rich and having some sort of disorder (Nagi being a NEET and Kanade a pervert) The two shows also have misfortunate butlers getting into amusing situations that are a pleasure to watch.
One guy surrounded by a bunch of cute girls. You get the idea.
Both of these series are considered romantic comedies with a lot of comedy, drama, and yes, the r for romance.
There is also character development and background involving characters of both series as the episodes progresses. Although both series' story is different, they both revolve around the protagonist trying to solve an issue. One trying to repay back a debt while the other is trying to get rid of his gynophobia.
Similar setting in a way
Both animes about butlers serving their masters
Both anime's butlers are good fighters
Hayate in Hayate no Gotoku is a male and Subaru is a female, pretending to be a male
If you've watched and liked Hayate, you will probably like Mayo Chiki too and Vice Versa.
Very similar graphic style and sense of humour... Yea, it's true, Seto have a very-offensive-sex-gags-based humour, when Hayate is more like parody, but if you like Seto, you will love Hayate for sure.
If you liked the first series of Hayate no Gotoku but didn't like the second, you will almost certainly love Baka to Test. The same frantic energy and well-timed parody of other anime shine in both series.
If you like a good comedy and don't mind if some of it being a bit mindless and doesn't make sense all the time check these out.
Baka to Test - Revolves around a main character who's always getting tricked by his friend's into doing stupid things and getting laughed at.
Hayate no Gotoku! - Revolves around a main character with the worst luck always getting into situations which usually end up in hilarious outcomes.
-Both "Hayate no Gotoku" & "Baka to Test" involve a main character who is unfortunate in a way that makes you laugh each time it happens.
-They each have a slight touch on romance but both are more focused on the comedy.
-Each of the main characters is loyal to another character and is willing to do almost anything for them with the right persuasion.  read more
First off, let me just say that both Hayate no Gotoku and Ourah High School Host Club are zany, random, and absolutely hilarious shows. I'd say they're a definite must watch if you're into comedies.
How are they similar?
Hayate no Gotoku has our hero, Ayasaki Hayate, who becomes a "combat butler" to pay off his debt to Nagi, who paid off his outrageous debt to some Yakuza; Yakuza of whom his parents borrowed a ton of money from, lost said money in gambling and crazy dreams, and then decided to skip town and leave Hayate behind with the debt. Boy is HnG a whacky show...
As for Ouran, our heroine is Fujioka Haruhi, who has a debt to pay off as well. Commoner Haruhi accidentally broke an 8 million yen vase belonging to the her prestigious high school's host club. And she's gotta pay it off by way of cross-dressing as a guy in the host club after school. read more
Both are about high school students owing a debt to rich kids, and both the main characters are clueless about the people that have crushes on them. Although Haruhi in Ouran High School Host Club has no choice but to cross-dress, Hayate from Hayate the Combat Butler (Hayate no Gotoku) is forced to cross-dress at alternate times by his master and his master's maid (I find that somewhat similar). Both of these are very random, and have awkward situations, although Ouran High School Host Club is shojo and Hayate the Combat Butler is shonen, I think they're both great. And hilarious. XD
In both anime, the protagonist that is poor is forced to work to rich characters in order to pay off a debt. There is also a clear distinction between the poor protagonist and rich characters, which is used for comedic effect. Hayate no Gotoku could be considered a harem, while Ouran High School Host Club is a reverse harem. Mostly in Ouran High School Host Club, and a bit in Hayate no Gotoku, there is a cross-dressing element.
If you like random anime parodies, then PaniPoniDash surely is recommended for you!
It doesn't have romance, is more a random-comedy, but is pretty funny, the better if you already have seen a lot of anime/manga so you can understand the jokes and references.
Both Allen and Hayate share the same personality..
They always end up helping other people, they both look kind and cheerful but also have funny dark personalities..
And not to forget that they also share the same unlimited "I can do anything" thing..
And lastly they share the same childhood experiences. Not exactly the same though..
Any how, however you see it they are the same <3.
hayate's type of comedy is very similar to that of the filler episodes of gray man i.e. the Komurin episodes. Also Alan's work to pay off his masters debts is similar to Hayate's parents debt of 150,000,000 yen
but Hayate is purely a comedy series.
Even though the plot is completely different the animes have common characters like the narration, comedy..
And the mc of both anime are having absolute similarities regarding their economy (both mc are poor and have large debt)
Narrators gone wild. Both show feature heavy narration to the point that it become cogs of the show. But please note that something has gone wrong with ookami-san narrator, all she did is ruining the mood. (try watching the sucky part of the show without narration, oh hey it's fun) Both show also happen to feature the almighty Itou Shizuka which is not worth mentioning at all, NOT at all.
Comedy , Parody, mix some Romance and you got Hayate no Gotoku (HnG for short)
while Ookami-san use Fairy tale and legend. HnG use oh soo many anime, manga and game . basicly HnG is for Otaku :3
and we have Voice of Heaven (HnG) and Narator (OOkami-san) that alwats mocking our Heroand Heroine
the thing bout Parody is guessing the reference and if you like doing that >.< i dare you to guess all reference they use in HnG. almost nobody can tell everr reference they use in HnG xD almost
Both are comedies about the main character as a boy who frequently cross-dresses, and has no-face parents who put their son in unimaginable debts, and are chased by debt collectors. They both end up falling into money, and end up working as a gofer for the people who saved them from their debts.
The only difference would probably be the contrast in length. Hayate no Gotoku is a full-episode series spanning multiple seasons, while Himegoto is currently only one season, with only 4-minute shorts.
Both have a guy from a non-rich background suddenly entering the world of EXTREMELY rich people. In Princess Lover, the guy suddenly gets adopted by his super-rich grandfather after his parents disappear by dying, and in Hayate, he gets hired by a super-rich 13-year old girl as a butler after his parents disappear by abandoning him and leaving him with a 150 million yen debt. Hayate can also transform into a Super Saiyan, shoot Kamehameha waves, and completely pwn Gundams unarmed, though the guy in Princess Lover is somewhat strong too, but there's no comparison.
Normal guy (commoner) gets involved with rich people.
-Male lead surrounded by princess-esque (Charlotte-Nagi), maid (Yuu-Maria), tsudere (Hinagiku-Silvia/Seika) female characters.
-Male leads are physically strong
-Breaks fourth wall a few times
-Lots of comedy
-Hayate series is longer and more random.
-On romance: Princess Lover favors one female just a little bit more whereas Hayate acknowledges the many ladies but pretty much treats them all the same.
Both of these manga/anime's feature teenage heiresses who are in need of protection from those after their inheritence.
In both these serieses, the heiresses are being portected by seemingly inhuman males:
Hayate the Combat Butler! - A 16 year old boy, who's drive and determination seems to result in him, at times, gaining superhuman strenth and endurance.
Kamen no Maid Guy - A large muscular man (seems to be an android), who has shark teeth, sharp nails, wears a mask and has 37 sences.
Both of them got butlers, maids and arrogant masters lol :D but Ladies vs Butlers is ecchier than Hayete no Gotoku so if ur crazy for ecchi you won't be finding what u want that much.But they are good animes so if u didn't watch one of them go for it :P
Not only are both of the female protagonists voiced by the same seiyuu,
but they follow the tsundere character of the anime world,
which tends to deny its attraction to the person of its interest by insulting, criticizing or even causing harm to said person.
Not surprisingly, both male protagonists of the two anime are initially clueless to this.
Both animes also have a huge dollop of the protect-those-i-care-about motif,
though the gender role for this situation in reversed in Shakugan.
Yotaro/Hayate must serve Makkio/Nagi. He is her bodyguard. Both Makio and Nagi are being targeted. A whole cast of characters come live with Makio/Nagi at her mansion. Both are a slice of life, comedy and some action.
both have strong male character
both main male character confuse other girls
both have same felling and humor
both have very rich girls and they try to lead a normal life
both the male character parents have left the child alone and gone somewhere
both the main male characters are understanding
Homeless because of their parent’s debt both main (Ayasaki Hayate-HNG & Momozono Nanami-KH) hero/heroine was forced out of their house, with a small stroke of luck they were taken in by a weird new home. New mysteries and comedy life both find themselves a new place to fit in. Both great series to watch!
These two series are similar because they both have a harem setup. In Hayate, the male lead is a butler, but in Hanaukyou, the male lead is the master. In both anime, the male leads are new to mansions and servants, and there is a female maid who is two years older and a love interest of the male lead in both anime. They also both have comedy aspects. These anime are dissimilar though because Hayate is much longer and there is less romance than Maid-tai. Also, the harem aspect of Maid-tai is much greater.
both have similar comedy
both are mixed with romance
both have the same athmosphera, though the plot is very diferent,
Hayate Ayasaki is a hardworking boy whose irresponsible parents even give him as a payment of a futile debt to the Yakuza. Fleeing from his pursuers, he meets the girl Nagi Sanzen and decides to kidnap her but, fumbling, seems to make her a declaration of love; can not make the request for ransom. At that moment, two true hijackers appear that lead Nagi, but Hayate goes behind. He manages to save her and asks for a job as a reward, but he gets hurt. Thus begins Hayate's career as Nagi's butler and bodyguard, along with Maid Maria. read more
Kenjiro Hata author of Hayate no Gotoku! is a big fan of Saint Seiya and through the series you can see a lot of references to this series. While HnG! is not as serous as Seiya they share similar feeling and both evolve around loyalty.
Both are hilarious anime that use outrageous situations to make witty jokes; they don't break the fourth wall, they disintegrate it! Both of them parody other anime.
Many of the characters in both series have a habit of simply blurting out whatever is on the edge of their tongues.
I'm pretty sure that you'll like one if you liked the other.
>The protagonist is saved by a short blondie and serves her.
>Both protagonist is really good at being servant/butler and he can do almost anything.
>Protagonist is innocent, has quite shocking past.
>Multiple girls. HAREM
>Mecha in Isekai
Why bother reading this! Get down to it and watch!
These two animes are similar 'cause it seems like the same character designer. In both animes the main character looks younger than he actually is. Both animes have many different characters. Also both of these animes are very funny; including parodies. If you liked Hayate no Gotoku, you'll definitely like Mahoraba ~Heartful days~
Comedy harem with plenty of possible pairings that appeal to audiences of all taste. Note that this recs focused on possibility of pairing because there are not many solid romance element or author-arranged couple present in both show, allowing audience imagination to runs wild.
Both are comedy-oriented anime with a large cast of characters with wide exaggerations. They also both have tons of puns referring to anime, game and general japanese pop culture. Kyouran Kazoku is slightly more crazy than Hayate no Gotoku and easier to understand for non-hardcore fan. If you like the comedy style in Hayate no Gotoku, you'll like Kyouran Kazoku Nikki too or vice versa.
Also, the female leads are very similar in character too....
These two anime are totally different in story and number of episodes. But if you're like me, (That is, you enjoy comedies with light action scenes and you're also a fan of insanely strong heroes with blue hair) then you should check out both of these shows.
They are both funny. 'Reborn' has more action scenes than 'hayate' but they are both pleasant to watch. Reborn deals with the mafia world while Hayate is more associated with randomness...however they are both happy, happy in a sense
If you think of a parody and are a parody anime fan, for a while you will always put HnG and Gintama titles together as great parody anime. Both have the same kind of comedy, randomness, and atmosphere.
Both protagonists are abandoned by their parent(s) and ends up working as some sort of servant. They are also both quite hard-working and by starting their new job, they encounter a variety of new people who works/lives there. They both seem to speak their mind and try to do justice in their own eyes.
Besides that, there is the fact that both series seems to have a comic factor to them - random stuff happening, weird personalities and so on. There might be more, but this was my opinion after watching the first episode og Hanasaku Iroha :)
Hayate is a parody of other anime and Dokuro-chan is somewhat like a parody itself. They are both considered "hilarious" but it depends on your sense of humor. Just be aware Dokuro-chan is the more raunchy version of the two.
You like animes with sick humor, lots of references and a storyline goes around the rules of a storyline? That are the points wich makes those two animes very similiar.
...oh and both have Nabeshin! <3
When I started watching Toradora!, it reminded me immediately of Hayate no Gotoku!
Besides being voiced by the same person, the first thing I thought about when I saw Taiga was "NAGI!": They're both short, rich and like to boss around, but they also have their sweet side that they show to the guy they like (and to their close friends). They also have problems with their parents / grandparents. Hayate is also similar to Ryuji in a way that they both serve their "masters" without hesitating, and also take care of the girls. Oh but Ryuji has a scary face while Hayate is cute :P
When I first watched Hayate no Gotoku I felt a spiritual presence coming from 2x2 Shinobuden. Both are notorious for anime parodies. Not to mention that Shinobu and Hayate have some extreme bad luck (Shinobu with her ninja skills, Hayate with money). You’ll also hear a familiar voice that will remind you of Onsokumaru. Don’t forget the mascot thing (the white tiger and the crocodile).
