  • It's a freaking hoot!
    Never letting his ever-unlucky life get the better of him, 16 year old Hayate is cursed with a debt of 156,000,000 yen by his irresponsible, happy-go-lucky parents.

  • 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 ...

  • Very very funny!!!!!
    this anime is very funny overall, but it does have a lot and I mean a lot of references from other series ( anime, tv, etc). This is more of a parody than anything else. Although this anime is very funny, sometimes is hard to keep up with the storyline, since they have some nonsensical side stories. I will recommend it to anyone who is looking for something very funny and entertaining.

  • Hyate no Gokutu: A Crazy Anime
    This anime is really interesting. A boy becomes a butler is not something you see everyday. Especially with the circumstances he faces like robots and ghosts.

    The second season is not a continuation in sorts it is more of a recap sort of season as it shows us stuff which take place before the final episode of Season 1. This makes it a little confusing seeing as we looking for new adventures ...

  • Hayate- The Fourth Wall Breaker
    This anime is really funny and all I can really say is this: Prepare yourself for a ton of breaking the fourth wall.
    For those who don't know what breaking the fourth wall means, it basicly means either the characters in the show are explaining what's happening in it to the audience, or they make references to other popular series (as such seen in episode 4, with a Metal Gear Solid ...

    Thats one for your DVD shelf
    Wow! I never expected to see Hayate become such a hit. I was there when the first chapters were released online, and i thought it was just another romantic comedy but for some reason it stuck with me and now i cant get enough, and you reading this cant ether! The story can become confusing at times if you don't pay attention, but other wise, everything else is great. I love that CR has HD ...

    Why is this show so funny?!
    The characters are so wacky! I just feel so sorry for Hayate sometimes, the stuff he gets mixed into! It's like the whole world is trying to screw him over! This anime is too funny! The references are awesome if you know your anime. They always find a way to make me laugh my head off! An awesome parody! Watch it!!
