Hayate the Combat Butler main image

When Hayate was young, Santa appeared in a dream and told him that if he worked hard, he’d be rewarded. Thus, with an unbreakable will, the unfortunate Hayate has struggled through life holding onto that belief. In the present, his parents are lazy and unemployed, forcing Hayate to work several jobs to pay the bills. As if things couldn’t get worse, Hayate’s parents then run away, leaving him with an enormous debt and loan sharks on his tail! Naturally, the best solution to find money fast is… to kidnap someone?! 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!

For its manga artstyle, you maybe slightly dissappointed (and maybe a little bit annoyed) for its rough-ness. But I assure you, its storyline, character development, all is in perfect order. It has harem style inserted, with Hayate being loved by almost everyone around him, makes you kinda eagerly awaiting who he end-up with. It also has tsundere characters, too shy to confront their feelings to Hayate... read more
