this is mostly just goes on and on with hayate having trouble, no character development, storyline is non-existent, this is the worst manga i read....don't get me wrong! i like comedy but i like it with the rest of the mix.

Lol.. hmm this manga.. is realllly something. Starts off with stomach crunching comedy and continues to be. I burst out laughing often while reading this.

The drawing of this manga is good and suits my taste.Cute simple drawing for the characters. Nothing too hard out or anything but it suits this manga since its just a wacky comedy kinda manga. Though i sometimes dislike the way the some things are drawn for example the lion.
Story line is .. hmm.. dont really see much of a story. just a life of a poor butler working for a uber rich family or something. If your a person who really read manga for a good plot or storyline then i suppose this isnt really your cup of tea.
Character development.. hmm there is some... but i dont see much.

Ah nvm.. overall this manga is just really an uber funny comedy manga and that is the main motive or rather driving force of this manga storyline.

Since i love this comedy so much ill give it a 9. but if i have to count in my ratings from all aspects id say this is a 7~8 kinda thing. But hey READ IT!!

Most manga I've read that has something like this are usually mediocre.

Although with HnG, it keeps you reading for more as they constantly break the 4th wall each and every time and the otaku-related jokes. For the most part, this manga can appeal to all ages and isn't overly vulgar in a sense there's like a ton of blood or ecchi items

This is a good read to those who want to read something random and doesn't care about the order since they're really isn't much of a storyline anyways... or... if you like gut-busting laughter. That's just as good

Although, probably the only thing is that they have so many references to other anime especially older ones, is that some of the newer generation or those who prefer to watch the new stuff might not have a clear understanding of how the reference may be properly used. However, for those who understand the jokes, they are quite well placed and gives the reader a good laugh or so.

The beginning is not so attractive but the later part, about v2 onwards is going onto the right track.

Maid, tsundere, twin-tails, SA chairman, megane tere etc. plus autho's tsukomi on himself and the characters he made.

I think it's moving towards harem but that's not the only component. The enjoyment level and atmosphere is similar to Magister Negi Magi.

But to enjoy all the jokes, you have to be a pretty good otaku. In fact, you can be pretty proud if you understand all the ACG related jokes there, from mecha history, kamen riders to RPGs plus some TV comedy shows in Japan.
