  • May seem cliché at first but will end up feeling fresh
    At first glance Hayate the combat butler looked a bit too shoujo for me and the characters seemed a bit generic, so I didn’t give it much attention. Now that I’ve tried it though, I’m surprised at how funny and original it actually is.

    What I like is how the story twists surprise me most of the time. Almost every time it seems like Hayate the Combat Butler goes straight for the ...

  • A little disjointed, but good
    This story is not exactly your typical harem anime, but then again, it is. The Japanese name 'Hayate no gotoku', literally means 'Like a gale', a play on the main character's need to outrun some debt collectors in the first few episodes (the pun is explained later, in season 2). With a subtitle like 'Hayate the Combat Butler!", one would expect more combat than physical exertion, but there's ...

    Hayate no Gotoku Review
    This is a beautiful show, I've watched both seasons twice already and I'm updated with the manga, which I'm also planning on buying the manga volumes.
    This show contains the perfect sense of humor, clever use of parody from many different sources, either from western shows such as Star Wars or other Japanese anime or dramas such as DBZ, Nagi even has a statue of various anime characters ...

    A brief memoir of a Filipino Hayate fan
    I firstly saw the Hayate franchise traced back shortly after the surprise passing of former president Cory Aquino and before the Typhoon Ondoy/Ketsana tragedy that hit the Philippines (my home country) in 2009 (then I was a graduated high school student) thanks to a locally-made anime magazine.

    From then on, I firstly listen to the music (from the Ops and Eds and later, character and insert ...

    A Great Anime to Watch With Your Family
    At first I thought this was going to be your all around harem but soon it turned out to be so much more. I won't spoil the story so I'll just say that every character is important to this anime in many ways. I usually watch anime by myself but with this anime I feel confident about showing this to my family. They instantly loved this anime and we had many laughs. So I'm saying that this anime is ...

    What can I say more? It's what every Otaku excepts an anime to be.
    This show was combined with such a great storyline filled with action, drama, comedy and let us not forget ROMANCE! The story after the next just keeps getting better and better. I promise to myself every midnight that I was only going to watch 2 episode and I'm out. But I stayed up until 3 a.m. so I could watch atleast 4 more episodes. Simply one of the best.
