16-year-old Hayate is really down on his luck. Because his unemployed parents are good-for-nothings who waste what money they have on gambling, Hayate had to start working at a young age to help out his family. Although such experience has made him inhumanly fast and tough and skilled at things boys aren`t normally skilled it, it has also left him in an awkward position, as his parents have racked up such a huge gambling debt that they have sold Hayate to the yakuza for the value of his organs. In a desperate attempt to avoid that fate, Hayate decides to become a “bad guy” and kidnap someone to be held for ransom, but his efforts to do so are mistaken as a confession of love by the girl he targets. When he helps save the (as it turns out) ultra-wealthy 13-year-old Nagi from real kidnappers, she takes him in and gives him a job as her new personal butler (and love interest) until he can pay off his debt. But Hayate is more attracted to Nagi`s beautiful teenage maid Maria, and head butler Klaus is initially disapproving of the boy with such a poor look. And then there`s Nagi`s pet Tama, who is also a force to be reckoned with.
Talking about bizarre luck~ nothing more sad than poor hayate XD but looks like his luck has change a lot, maybe~ This is definitely one of my all time favorite, either the manga or the anime. Well no surprise if they suddenly decide to put a 52 episode at once~ this anime is very hilarious although some of the original episodes totally silly, its still interesting. But some of the joke especially in the anime related to other shows, thankfully SS-Eclipse subs always give some description for noobs like me~
And now, its already episode 42~ and 43 almost in my hand too~ lets take a quick look at it~
Hayate the Combat Butler – episode 42: Just Like Dogs, Rats, and Bulldogs
The intros begin with baby Hayate~ and her poor fate already determined in his name~
“His name is Hayate…It’s because I want him to become strong boy who will be able to run away from debt collectors like a gust of wind.” WTH~ rofl
All I can say is I laughing my ass off on almost all time in this episode, Nagi & Co. try to find his weaknesses and end up getting a lame joke~ and on part two is a bit about Wataru and Sakuya past~ whoa thats quite romantic~ poor Wataru, he should just be honest, its hard though~
