Hardworking Hayate has a plan to pay back the yakuza, who are now the legal owners of his body parts. He’ll kidnap someone and ransom them for a mountain of money! But things get tricky when his would-be kidnapped, who as luck would have it is the daughter of a mind-bogglingly wealthy family, mistakes Hayate’s actions for a confession of love and subsequently hires him to be her personal servant. At least his employment future is secure, or so he thinks

Good for comedy, bad for the plot

If you want a fun comedic manga, this is it! Has some great one liners and recurring gags that are bound to make you laugh. Just don't expect some well fleshed out plot out of this!

The first 100 chapters are good

Staring from chapter 120 ish, and up to, it becomes stale, there are some chspters though that reengages the reader, but fir the most asrt it is stale. Chapter 170ish, especially 179-187 are really interesting, gers boring around chapter 210 ish area, gets interesting from 232 -266, some after are interesting, it beocmes tedious when the femc little girl, forgot her name funniyl enough, is trying to sell her manga, like i loved tbe chapters before her selling cause it showed us that she has a vuneravle side. But the con part where they sell the mangas felt lacklustre. It become more engagin in 300 section,

356 is boeing

362 and after are good

It gets stale but good again, but by chapter 431, spmething happenes which i am somewhat sad about

Chapter 463 and after are good

533 yay

Ok after chapter 500, everything becomes stale

Now for my reveiw,this manga has some serious pacing issues, like i understand that is the point of mangas similar to this, but it really eould ruin the important bits of information to move the plot, also after a cettain girl is introduced, does the plot of mc romance start moving, near chapter 500 the end was not that great imo, they shoehorned in villains
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the parents and the sister and the other butler, honestly at that point was not paying attention

While this was not the best work fromt he author, i would highly recommend their other work "Fly Me To The Moon" cause in that manga, the pacing is so so SO much better. And the author seems to use the feedback from this manga and improved his new manga with said feed back,

Overall, strong start, middle section was jumping from boring to epic, wnding 500 chapters were like get this over with

One of my favorite manga it is good despite being dragged out simply because it never take itself seriously even sometime throwing joke at the series itself. But this is exactly why the series can go for so long and still being read and loved by many.

And then come out the ending probably the worst since TWGOK or Negima, and I actually like those ending even thought many probably disagree. TWGOK is simply end like that because the logic actually support it, and Negima end like that simply because they need to set up a stage for new series. But HnG just doesnt have any of those. It simply wham bam thank you mam!!... the end... It feel way too rushed. It defy all my logic, making it impossible to even think such thing is possible, it will be much better if they just leave it all hanging IMO.

It still is a really good series worth read over and over. The ending feel rushed but so is most of other manga.

I'm really glad i waited this one out, if i had to wait for each release i would have gone mental figuring out what the hell was happening. SO MUCH FILLER but it is still entertaining and there is sometimes a reaaaally subtle point towards the main plot. Though one thing really bothers me were the hell has the tiger goneconfused?

Two weeks ago i bought hayate volume 33 just to entertain myself while waiting my newest book of main collection manga title to be published. At that time i was just had that only book of hayate. Now, i continue it until 37th book plus get the 17th also 21th book.

The story flows very natural and easy to understand. If you want to kill some time waiting your favorite manga title(s), by reading another manga with easy feeling, hayate is all you need.

Al principio me costo engancharme con su estilo de comedia...pero una vez que conoces un poco más de la cultura nipona este manga se torna más y más divertido. Hasta se dio el lujo de agregar un poco de drama en algunos arcos. This is a good manga, and I enjoy read (my english sucks)

The series is good and had a lot of potential.... but then author keeps on dragging and dragging the story. Most time doesn't have nothing to do with the story. The comedy are over used, the story has too many cliché moments.

If this gets a conclusion soon, then miht be worth finishing it, but the way its going, its hard to say.

Hayate no Gotoku start off as a funny manga filled with pop culture references. It was enjoyable; a perfect read while sipping some coffee at a cafe or something. The manga continues to add characters - very likable characters, mind you - as it progresses. Then it throws the Athena arc at you. Suddenly, you're thrown into a manga full of drama, suspense, and romance - pure romance (not rom-com), and somehow, this impossible segue is made believable, thanks to the hard efforts of the mangaka. After that, the plot slowly declined, till it reached the point to where the whole thing was basically filler. I like filler, if it's done well, but since this comment is for the sake of those who don't like filler, I'll add that to the short list of cons the manga has. Then, in an act to save the manga, the mangaka introduced some conflict. It's refreshing to see something different from the usual romance "conflict" the filler contains. All in all, Hayate no Gotoku is an enjoyable read, and even if there are a few stumbles here and there, it's still worth reading.

I didn't drop this prematurely, I kept up with it as it came out for weeks, and I just couldn't keep up with the so-called "comedy" derived from pop-culture references. As far as these types of manga go, I much rather prefer Keroro Gunsou and Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei.
