    Hayate the Combat Butler

    Post by Dawn on Wed Aug 08, 2012 4:55 pm

    Hayate: "When reading this Hayate the Combat Butler trope entry, make sure to read this from a decent distance away from the computer screen in a well-lit room."
    Nagi: "Got it?"
    "This is the super combat battle story of a boy who fights..."
    Sixteen-year-old Hayate is really down on his luck. Because his unemployed parents are good-for-nothings who waste what money they have on gambling, Hayate had to start working at a young age to help out his family.
    Although such experience has made him inhumanly fast and tough (he can catch up with a bullet train on a bicycle and knock out a tiger with a single punch) and skilled at things boys aren't normally skilled at, it has also left him in an awkward position. His parents have racked up such a huge debt that they have sold Hayate to "nice men". In a desperate attempt to avoid this fate, Hayate decides to become a "bad guy" and kidnap someone to be held for ransom, but his efforts are mistaken by the girl he targets as a confession of love.
    When he helps save the (as it turns out) ultra-wealthy 13-year-old Nagi from real kidnappers, she takes him in and gives him a job as her new personal butler (and love interest) until he can pay off his debt, which will take about 40 years. But Hayate is more attracted to Nagi's beautiful teenage maid Maria, and head butler Klaus is initially disapproving of the boy with such a poor look. And then there's Nagi's pet tiger, Tama, and Nagi's various social peers.
    While it sounds like the setup for a gooey romantic comedy (and sometimes the series is just that) Hayate refuses to take anything in its universe the slightest bit seriously. Characters routinely reference the fictional nature of their existence, thinly-veiled parodies of characters from other series wander on and offscreen for no reason, and people do otherwise illogical things for the express purpose of "advancing the plot."
    But then, there is a story arc in the manga as well; events that were originally just jokes have had their backstories explained; and there is a continual thread involving Hayate's past and the origins of his abilities, Nagi's mother, a Mineral MacGuffin, the Sanzenin and Tachibana family, a girl and a magical castle.
    The first season of the anime, animated by Synergy SP, aired in 2007, and follows the manga up to a certain point, after which it adds a bunch of filler and creates plot holes for those who watched the season that followed.
    A second season, animated by J.C. Staff, aired in 2009. It follows the manga more closely and has a much higher animation budget.
    There's now an animated film adaptation being produced by Manglobe (Samurai Champloo) and written by Koboyashi Yasuko (Shakugan no Shana). Entitled Hayate no Gotoku! Heaven is a Place on Earth, it is set to release on August 27th, 2011, with a third season on the way afterwards. It has been implied the by third seasons project director that the third season may not be a continuation of the plot, but instead be a entirely new anime.
    The anime has been licensed by Bandai Entertainment. Unfortunately, the creator and syndicators released the series subbed-only after it had released on TV, having already felt that the manga would not be a big hit and not expecting any further luck. There is a dub made by Red Angel Media, although it is limited to the Southeast Asian viewers.
    Part of Season 1 and all of Season 2 is available on crunchyroll.com.
    There is also a 2010 Live-Action TV Taiwanese Series of the same name, based on the original storyline but with differently named characters. Hayate and friends appear in the Massive Multiplayer Crossover game, Sunday VS Magazine Shuuketsu Choujou Daikessen.
    Here we have the character sheets of the sweet, wacky and lovable cast. (Well, except Hayate's parents. They're NOT lovable). Also check out the Shout Out page!- there are already a lot.

    So I'm currently reading the latest chapter and laughed real hard at about 1/3 of the way through it.

    I like the manga a lot more, but the anime is good too. The first season was really more than half filler which messes a lot of things up, but if you watch it mostly because of the comedy like I'm guessing you should, I don't think it would be too bad.

    Everytime I go to a trope on TV tropes I find it. So I might look it up to learn more about it.

    Because I may as well:


    Though I'm posting this, I would still rather suggest the manga to anyone who hasn't watched/read this yet.

    My avy from a week ago didn't say I liked this show.

    ...

    f*** you, I loved this manga. Yet to watch the anime incarnation, and can't be bothered because I can't do the same for any other anime series. =/

    One of these days, I need to get around to watching the anime.
    Mostly, from what I remember, they basically parody everything else(Sailor moon, Yugioh, GaoGaiGar, etc)

    I listen to her songs or at least Forever Star occasionally.

    You should totally listen to it because you'll hear her other song if you watch the movie. Dunno if you will but I like this one more:


    ^Press it. It's amazing. <3

    Gah, I really need to watch more of the anime. I saw like, 20 of the episodes but put it on hold.

    Yeah. =o

    But you know, seeing as the movie has Ruka singing and Kayura, manga readers will probably understand it more than anime watchers, so you have the choice of watching that first.

    I probably will watch it first.
    After I go to my friends house, load it up and then leave.
    xD

    Why haven't I posted here yet?
    I love the series. Pace has been slowed down a bit, but I feel like it's picking up again.

    "Are you sure about that?"
    "N-no..."

    I felt sad for a bit but then it just got kinda funny. =o
    (Chapter that was new when it was new chapter)

    New anime started off really awesome. Awesome Ruka, awesome Hayate, awesome Nagi, awesome new character, etc.

    Ruri "Tsugumi" looks a bit like Tsumiki. :3

    And... I can really see this being just as funny as the other seasons. Not the manga though, the manga has that thing(s) with Wataru.

    Hayate car landing was funnier than the first time, though.
