Hayate the Combat Butler (ã?ã?¤ã??のã?とく!, Hayate no Gotoku!?) is a Japanese manga series, written by manga author Kenjiro Hata, about a boy who starts a new job as a butler and the events he experiences with his employer. The manga is currently on its sixteenth volume in Japan. The English edition of the series has been licensed by Viz Media for distribution in North America. The style of the manga has a comedic gag with a slight harem feel and constantly breaks the fourth wall. The series includes references to other anime, manga, video games, and popular culture. An anime adaptation of the manga started airing on April 1, 2007, and ended on March 30, 2008 on TV Tokyo. A second anime season of Hayate the Combat Butler was officially confirmed for production by TV Tokyo on the official site on March 31, 2008, and in Shōnen Sunday volume eighteen, released on April 2, 2008. Another such announcement immediately followed the ending credits of the final episode of season one. On July 4, 2008, Bandai Entertainment announced that they have licensed the anime series.SummaryHayate Ayasaki is an unlucky teenager who worked since childhood to make ends meet due to his parents' irresponsible behavior. One day he finds out that his parents ran away from home, leaving behind a massive gambling debt on his shoulders. While running away from the debt collectors, he ends up meeting Nagi Sanzen'in, a young girl who is the sole heir of the wealthy Sanzen'in estate, and due to a misunderstanding, Nagi ends up falling in love with Hayate. After he rescues Nagi from some kidnappers, she hires Hayate as her new butler.Aside from performing his ordinary duties as a butler, Hayate must fight to protect Nagi from harm, a difficult task as her life is always in danger because she is the target of other individuals coveting her family's fortune, and sometimes deal with some extravagant requests from her, oblivious to Nagi's true feelings for him.MangaThe Hayate the Combat Butler manga was first serialized in the Japanese shōnen manga magazine Shōnen Sunday in May 2004. The manga is written and illustrated by Japanese manga author Kenjiro Hata. Viz Media announced they acquired the rights to publish the manga in North America and released the first volume on November 14, 2006. English translation is done by Yuki Yoshioka and Cindy H. Yamauchi; English adaptation is done by Mark Giambruno. The latest volume, 18, was released on January 16, 2009. Over ten million copies of the manga and other Hayate-related books have been sold as of January 2009.List of Manga Chapter

Main charactersHayate Ayasaki (綾å´? ã?ã?¤ã?? ,Ayasaki Hayate?) Voiced by: Ryōko Shiraishi Hayate, sixteen, has had to work to support his parents' bad habits since the age of eight, always moving from job to job, as he is fired when he is discovered to be underage. Hayate's dad is unemployed and his mother is a compulsive gambler, which leads inevitably to their bankruptcy. They abandoned Hayate after attempting to sell his organs to the Yakuza to ease their financial burdens. Without many choices left to him, Hayate decides to hold someone for ransom. He finds a girl, Nagi Sanzen'in, and tells her that he would "like to take her away". However, Nagi mistakes his words for his confession of love, and Hayate ends up employed as Nagi's new butler. Characters in the series continually remark that Hayate looks poor and seedy. He believes that everyone hates him except children, though he doesn't think of children as being anything other than friends. Hayate sees Nagi as a little sister that needs to be looked after, and is oblivious to her romantic feelings towards him. He has occasional romantic feelings towards Maria. Despite his terrible luck, Hayate lives up to the title of "combat butler" as he is proficient in repelling attacks from almost anything, including other butlers. He once demonstrated skill with fire-arms and is essentially invincible. He is also continually teased throughout the series as being physically feminine, and Nagi and Maria constantly dress him up in dresses and women's clothes. Regardless of what he is wearing, most people claim that he "looks poor"; even Nagi and Maria won't meet his eyes when they assure him that this doesn't matter. Nagi Sanzen'in (ä¸?å?é?¢ ã??ã?® ,Sanzen'in Nagi?) Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya Nagi, thirteen, is the only heir to the Sanzen'in fortune. She is a tsundere and has an otaku-level hobby with manga and anime, and draws her own, very strange, manga, called Magical Destroy. She is good at finances and likes to learn. She has a pet tiger named Tama, who has somehow gained the ability to speak like a human being. Neither she nor Maria is aware of this, but Hayate has found out. She has a crush on Hayate, and, since meeting Hayate, has acted on the misconception that the feeling was reciprocated, thus she is very jealous of him. Her only surviving family is her grandfather, whom she doesn't like for reasons that are not entirely clear. She regards Maria as a mother or older sister figure. Nagi is afraid of dark places and has a history of making potentially lethal mistakes when cooking. She is very nonathletic and not as familiar with the real world as she should be. Maria (ã??ã?ªã?¢ ?) Voiced by: Rie Tanaka Maria, seventeen, is Nagi's maid and surrogate older sister/mother. She plays the voice of reason in the series, and is the only one who understands the problem between Hayate and Nagi. She appears to be the one running everything in Nagi's manor, since everyone including the head butler and the SP either obeys or fears her (or both in some cases). She is good at general housework and likes games of all kinds, though she is deathly afraid of cockroaches, which she refers to as "the dark life-form that exists in the kitchen and other places". She has no last name because she was an orphan who was found next to the statue of St. Mary at a church, which she is named after. The day she was found, December 24, is celebrated as her birthday. She has seen Hayate naked several times, and she sees the effect he has on other girls, many of whom are attracted to him for his kind nature. Despite this, she is completely oblivious to Hayate's romantic interest in her. Maria is also legendary throughout the school for having graduated from high school at the age of thirteen, in just three years, while maintaining the position of Student Council President throughout. She has also won numerous amount of awards while holding the best grades in the school's history.

Yeah well, they DO have to focus on her now...Since their story(Hayate & A-tan) is a tragic one. Still the newest chapter is a change from serious back to comedy XD[spoiler=]Doesn't Hinagiku look kawaii with donkey ears? XDDD[/spoiler]
