Since the tender age of nine, Hayate Ayasaki has busted his behind at various part-time jobs to support his degenerate gambler parents. And how do they repay their son’s selfless generosity?

Hayate the Combat Butler, Vol. 9

Hayate owes a debt of gratitude to Hinagiku--the cute, sporty, and all around perfect-in-every-conceivable-way student body president--and as her March 3rd birthday draws near, the bankrupt butler tries hard to come up with an appropriate present. But with final exams on the horizon, will he have time to prepare Hinagiku a heartfelt gift and pass his classes? Later, an ancient curse makes Hayate appear as if he's wearing women's clothing--and if it isn't broken, Hayate will be doomed to live out the rest of his days in drag! But, seeing as he looks really cute in a maid's uniform, maybe that isn't a bad thing...
