For Hayate, the money may run out, but the gags never do!

Created by Kenjiro Hata | MoreLess about Hayate the Combat Butler

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? By selling his organs to the yakuza to cover their debts! But fate throws Hayate a bone…sort of. Now the butler of a wealthy young lady, Hayate can finally pay back his debts, and it’ll only take him 40 years to do it.

Without ever receiving any kind of manga award, Kenjiro Hata’s
first series, Umi no Yuusha Lifesavers, was published in Shonen Sunday Super. He followed that up with his smash hit Hayate the Combat Butler. His follow-up series, Fly Me to the Moon, began serialization in 2018 in Weekly Shonen Sunday.

Hayate the Combat Butler, Vol. 40

The manga-drawing duel, with Hayate’s very body on the line, reaches its shocking conclusion! (Or maybe not so shocking, since Nagi spoiled it back in volume 37.) Expect broken hearts, touching farewells, surprise reunions, and the rest of the cast throwing a sweet party while the plot focus is away from them. Then it’s time to rewind to the source of Hayate’s misadventures. Remember, way back in volume 1, when Santa Claus verbally abused him? Ready to find out what was up with that?
