After the Athena Arc the story starting to get less interesting but i still like the series it just that I think the story would have gone better if they are still in the mansion and Athena show up in the school and hayate is surprise to see her that is how i would want the future chapter would have been

I can't really comprehend why everyone seems to be more critical over this series.

As one of the commenters put it I was totally in for this kinda harem series that did not take itself seriously. I was first introduced to the quirky, unique humor and our unlucky butler via the anime and since I was told that the anime kept a tangent off the manga, I am relatively unsure of how this series was like in its formative years, However, I downed the athena arc++ rapidly after completing the anime, and felt the serious turn in the series and the massive arcs bore a slight resemblance to the way Amatsu sensei from Negima likes to write about dramatic situations and grandeur scenery.

I enjoyed the near 180 degree turn. I thought it was good. Different series sometimes change their genres big time, like Reborn, which turned from gag to a solid action series. In this case, the romance, especially with Hina and Athena turned out kinda well fleshed-out, which was suprising but not an unpleasant change.
Hope to see greater things from this manga.

Ahahahahaha... this series never failed to make me laugh. the randomness really like a mess and I love it! the slow development really just right to treasure every moment of crazy things that always happened to this debt-ridden butler. It's really lively and it can survive and become a long comedy action harem manga. It's just the right tempo for a long gag manga.

as long as you still can laugh, try this manga. don't worry, even a dumbass can still get this manga content coz it doesn't require you to do much thinking nor theorizing it in some forum.

although, unfortunately it seems the plot have been moving recently but even if it comes to an end it's still a top gag manga.

This is not for everyone, with its quirky and random humor. Its charm comes from lovable characters and corny jokes that somehow become acceptable, if not pretty hilarious, within the atmosphere. As long as you don't take it too seriously, it's an enjoyable read. Fans of School Rumble will probably like it as well though I think School Rumble was funnier.

Awesome Manga

I really love how the simple things that seem random at first really tie together in the later chapters. I think the author really planned his story really well. Brings me chills when I realize how important things that happened before were and how they're all connected. One of my favorite mangas of all time. Especially the Athena arc, lots of emotions running there.

The Plot

I couldn't find another comment mentioning this. The actual plot is a winding thread. It's a gag comic so there are many humorous short stories but within those stories are bits and pieces of the overall plot. As the story goes on, they become more frequent and you start to see these pieces and strands tie together. These are really starting to show in the most recent chapters. If you care about plot, you shouldn't read unless your willing to pick out and remember those strands as you read. If you give up before you make it to the 200's or so you probably won't see the point of it all.

Its nice in the beginning but after a while it just drags on and on its just to tiring to keep reading, it seems like there isnt a real goal to this story, and most of the characters are just to young to really enjoy it.

It's not often that I find a character that I repeatedly feel sorry for but Hayate is probably the best human. (Menchi from Excel Saga being the best period.) The story is messed up and the art is a bit plain but you'd be hard pressed to find a better gag manga in serialization. Now if only this series didn't have a huge hole of untranslated chapters.

edit: The story has taken on a more serious tone in the later chapters and arcs tends to be drawn out across several chapters. This is usually a sign that the story will come to an end soon which is unfortunate. Serious endings to silly stories always leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Then again, knowing how many story arcs can still flow from this series, it may very well last for another two hundred and fifty chapters.

I love Hayate no Gotoku!

When I first started reading Hayate, I was completely in the mood for just this type of story. All at once, I fell in love. The manga caught my heart through the hilariously improbable situations and crazy settings. Hayate is an unlucky jack of all trades. This manga is such a fun and light read, when I got to the end of the scanlations, I was genuinely disappointed that there wasn't more to read. All the characters are silly and lovable all at once. Hinagiku is my favorite character, she is just too cute. I can only hope that Hayate no Gotoku will continue forever and that the scanlaters catch up to the releases.
