A girl named Nagi is the target, but due to an unfortunate miscommunication, she believes Hayate has proposed to her and falls for him hard. After Nagi paid off his debt, Hayate must now work as her butler in order to repay her; but first, he must adapt to her wacky world!

Hayate and Desert Punk are humorous series made for those seeking a good laugh. The episodes are full of jokes edging on the bizarre, and if you ended up laughing out loud watching one of them, you'll surely do so for the other. The settings vary greatly, but that's besides the point; for they share their weird humour, odd characters and absurd situations.

Several years ago, Jin Kamishina's family was killed in what appeared to have been a space shuttle accident. A few years later he is suddenly attacked by a strange monster, but is saved by a strange girl named Toa who possesses superhuman strength and can transform into a dragon. Jin finds out that the accident was not due to an error by his father, the pilot, but rather as a result of a collision with an object from outer space – the asteroid Thanatos, the source of destructive dragons appearing on Earth. As they make new friends and enemies, Jin and Toa now find themselves becoming increasingly entangled in the mysteries of the ISDA – a shadowy organization working to protect humanity – and the dragons themselves...
In my opinion, both of theses series are tains wreks, (the subbers for dragonaut even mentioned it was "the only time they wanted the power of love to loose"), however that on its own isn't enough for this review.
Each series has standalone episodes(Hayate is more excusable, it's a comedy)
Each series is "funny" at times, but never how it means to be. Its the "funny" you get when a really fanatical person takes himself to be funny, or intelligent.
The graphical styles are somewhat similar.
If you have the guts to tear through one of these alive, I would stop there. But if you want to show some real manhood… then the other is a perfect target

Combined, the ever-hungry airheaded Milfeulle, voluptuous Ranpha, cold-as-ice Vanilla, regal Mint and aggressive gun-wielding Forte make up the Galaxy Angels -- an intergalactic team dedicated to finding the elusive Lost Technology! Joined by the once suicidal missile AI (now in the body of a stuffed animal), these girls must complete their mission at all costs! From finding lost pets to helping a pizzeria in debt, to infiltrating outposts full of monkeys, the work of a Galaxy Angel is never complete...
Both Hayate the Combat Butler and Galaxy Angel carry simple and easy-to-follow plot lines. Both of these comedies are capable of poking fun at not only themselves, but the entire genre as a whole. Each has a naive female and comedic Japanese stereotype, and pulls off its character goals flawlessly. While intended for younger viewers, they are able to captivate older audiences as well who seek a nostalgic feel-good comedy.
If you are in the mood for a lighter and more palpable anime, these are sure to please.
