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.

Hayate the Combat Butler, Vol. 3

As if dealing with his mistress Nagi's outlandish demands weren't taxing enough, poor (yet perennially) hardworking Hayate has to suffer the ignominy of being challenged to a duel by Nagi's fiancé Wataru Tachibana. With his saber at the ready, Hayate is prepared to defend himself...but is there any logical reason why he's even fighting a duel in the first place? Shouldn't the simple act of keeping the Sanzenin household spic-and-span be enough?
