Synopsis

Misfortunes abound in the life of 16-year-old Hayate Ayasaki. Even though he is underage, he spends most of his time working part-time jobs to make money to support his extravagant parents. As if that wasn't hard enough, his parents disappear without a trace one day, leaving him behind with a debt of almost 150 million yen. As a result, he finds himself being chased by debt collectors.

Running for his life, he stops in a park, believing that he is safe. Contemplating his jobless future, he decides to kidnap a wealthy child for ransom. And thus, when he sees a rich-looking blonde girl, he attempts to capture her. However, she too is kidnapped before Hayate can even try!

Hayate then saves her, and as a reward, he requests a job, and the girl makes him her butler, revealing herself to be the daughter of a wealthy family. Even with a job, his misfortune remains; Hayate will have to go through many nasty predicaments, all the while burdened by his lousy luck.

In a timeless romance one of the most somber things you’ll realize is that one of you will live to see the death of the other. I was 16 years old when I picked up Hayate and realized, hey, this character is the same age as me. As I grew older I came to my own realization that Hayate will continue to be 16 forever. I will be going through life while Hayate, poor Hayate, will still be attempting to pay off his debt and power through the silliest adventures you can think of. In a world where the parody genre is dominated by Gintama, read more

Jesus Christ, I finally finished this 500+ manga and it only took me 7 months to do so.
Anyway, I watched the Hayate anime a few years ago which is why I of course decided to check out the manga out of curiosity. I'm not a huge fan of the series like I am with other romance harems like Rosario Vampire and Heaven's Lost Property but I enjoyed the series to a certain extent.

Story: 6
Hayate's story is a very mixed bag. It starts out well with the idea of a Hayate being abandonded by his parents on Christmas Eve and taking on their debt read more

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS
Story
Most of the chapters are auto-conclusive, and filled with gags.
The Athena's arc is definitely 10+/10. (very intense)
570 chapters are way too much. (13 years)

Art
Retrò, but enjoyable.

Character
Ayasaki, Hayate can do all, and understands other people's emotions very well, but misunderstandings still hunt him.
Sanzenin, Nagi improved to become independent, but still a kid. Hayate is wasted on her at the end.
Maria is very funny, but the story never mentioned she is Hayate's step-sister. So she became Mary Poppins. Very unjust for such a great character.
Tennousu, Athena was probably the best fit for Hayate, but the mangaka said no. (chibi athena was annoying)
Hayate's parents just read more

This is a very bias review.
Hayate no Gotoku was one of the first manga I've ever read, dated all the way back in 2007, when it only had 100-ish chapters. I didn't read every week, I believe I took a 2 years break just so that I can read all of them at once. Regardless, It's like my child you know.
After 10 odd years with 570 chapters, it ended.

To the actual story, Hayate no Gotoku is about an unlucky guy, with many odd talents (especially with woman), who fall into debt by his parents and was taken in by a super rich lady to read more
