Anyone following this series?

Hayate is an ordinary highschool student who's parents are compulsive gamblers and sell his organs to the local yakuza. While escaping them, Hayate instead gains a job as a butler for a girl who has some 'interesting' tastes.

It's licensed now but it's a great show. It really reminds me of Zero No Tsukaima set in a mansion. I hate that the 5th volume (Because fansubs stopped at 4 when it was licensed) will probably not be out until November 2007 but it's a great light comedy romp.

I wonder how it ended (If it did)

I love Hayate, I'm sad that the group that was scanlating it stopped, but on the other hand, I'm very happy that it was picked up by Viz for distribution in my country. AFAIK, it's actually still ongoing, volume 7 was released earlier this year.

I'm really hoping that by this time next year they'll be announcing an anime. :)

retracnosna 2006-12-04 19:52

is George Kastanza the author?

him and his partner Jerry Seinfeld tried turning a similar idea into a sitcom once

Forbin 2006-12-04 20:23

Gets more complicated. Except for the big breasted redhead it looks like the storyline of ZnT.

After seeing it mentioned by many japanese otaku forums/blogs, there's a high probability that it will get an anime ^^

retracnosna 2006-12-06 03:42

Doesn't remind me of ZeroNoTsukaima too much yet. Pretty good manga so far though

except for chapter8. That just seemed like a bad decision. Pick a targert audience already lol. If it's yaoi fans, have the crossdressing from the start. If it's hetero guys, which it seemed to be, might want to just skip it.

Forbin 2006-12-06 12:51

Loli girl who likes to beat up on her 'Slave/Butler' and has a best friend who looks like Siesta and a Maid who Hayate is more interested in?

Except for Tama all the characters look like ZnT. Was chapter 8 where they dress him up in the Nekomimi?

Village Idiot 2006-12-06 12:56

I just read Vol 1-8, and I must say, this manga is really, really good. It just keeps getting better and better as it moves along. Like Pani Poni Dash!, the manga is filled with references to other manga/anime, and often breaks the fourth wall.

I highly recommend it to anyone whom can get it.

Sadly though, Viz appears to be releasing the volumes every 4 months :(

And the chapters are being released by Weekly Shounen Sunday; doesn't that mean it is a weekly release like Negima?

Nah, Nagi doesn't beat up on Hayate, she's in love with him and treats him well, unless he pisses her off somehow (though he only treats her like a kid).

And yes, Ch8 was when Nagi and Maria got carried away and dressed him up in Nekomimi.

The release date appears to be 3 months, which unfortunately is becoming more common with the release schedule for American companies (instead of a release every 2 months). But yes, 3 months between volume does seem slow. How often are the Japanese volumes released?

Vol 1 21th Nov 2005
Vol 2 12th Feb 2007
Vol 3 8th May 2007

I shall have to give this manga a try.

You're correct - it's a weekly manga. I meant to correct that after I looked it up, but work interfered. It's corrected now.
For some weird reason I was thinking it was the same magazine as FMA - not the same magazine as Midori no Hibi.

EDIT: I also don't really get the ZnT references - I guess at some level it seems like it, but it has a much different feel to me. In a lot of ways it reminds me of a less-ecchi, reversed He Is My Master.

Vol 9 will be released this month in Japan.

Hmm...the manga started in 2004, so I'm guessing the usual 3 months or something per volume?

I'm reading through the scanslations/raws again to tide me over till Viz releases Vol 2. Its just that good :D

retracnosna 2006-12-06 13:38

^lol I was going to say it reminded me of He is My Master a little bit too, but decided no to bother

I like Hayate better personally. Sucks there are only 4 volumes translated

Village Idiot 2006-12-06 13:53

Hayate is awesome.

I also like Hayate better than HiMM - for one thing I find the jokes much funnier (but then I really like PPD! and other referential works). It's just that the setup reminds me more of that than ZnT.

Forbin 2006-12-06 17:17

Probably does but I stopped HMM after episode 4...all those contests got to me.

Owells when I saw ZnT I was thinking of Hayate...owells...Just me I guess.

Come on Vol 5!

Thelastguardian 2006-12-06 21:05

Let's put it this way, I have the manga and frankly, this is one of the few manga series I have that after reading it ~8 times over, I still want to re-read it :) .

HMM, on the other hand....(look at the plastic storage box on my floor...

In other word, if I had to burn my manga one by one to save the world, this series would be among the last ones I would burn :) .

The jokes are somewhat similar to PPD, with many ACG parodies/references and ironic moments- lots of "Kyon style" scolding (I don't know what's the english name for that term is). Thankfully, the jokes are much more straightforward than PPD is.

One of the main attraction about this manga is that there is a plot that makes sense (for a comedy)
(even though 8 volumes later, only 3 months have past in the story...).



Most people stop reading after the 1st volume because they were repulsed at how horrible the main character's parents are- they are beyond cruel, in a very hilarious sort of way ;D

If you can last through the first 2 volumes, however, you are in the clear. I originally stopped following the story after two volumes, but its popularity compelled me to resume.

Kurogane_Shiroikaze 2006-12-16 14:11

Hayate anime has been announced.

I came to heaven and returned back. I will probably go to heaven again if my dream cast list is fulfilled.

SinsI 2006-12-17 23:18

I really wonder how the hell can THIS be translated for general public. I find myself reading through the cultural references like 1/3 of the time(and I am already fairly educated in them, so it's going to be many times worse for ordinary people), and still A LOT of the jokes completely loose their punch.
Stupid, stupid choice for Viz.

Hurray :) :)
I kind of wish they don't leave his hair bluish white. Maybe blond?

kemal_1915 2006-12-20 09:57

Hayate is definitely not just like ZnT or HiMM.
Our honorable butler is multi-talented, multi-purpose, unbreakable gun*beep*.
Not a useless dog or pervert lolicon.
