Hayate the Combat Butler

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. Hayate the Combat Butler is currently serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday.
