New Hayate the Combat Butler OVAs announced


Celebrating ten years of Hayate

I have a very strange relationship with Hayate the Combat Butler. A couple of years ago I watched the first two seasons on Crunchyroll and fell in love pretty much right away. I thought that while it was a pretty typical harem comedy, it was still really funny and entertaining. But then the movie came out... and the next season... and the season after that (which was annoying titled Hayate Cuties) and I realized that my love of Hayate had long since passed on. It just wasn't all that clever any longer but still I watched every episode faithfully for some reason that is still beyond my realm of understanding and, like a dog that just doesn't know any better, I will probably be watching the primary subject of this article when it is released later this year. 

In this year's 16th issue of Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine, it will be announced that Hayate the Combat Butler is coming back to the world of anime in the form of a three episode OVA. The OVA series will be bundled with the 41st, 42nd and 43rd volumes of the manga which will begin releasing on June 18th. 

No word on what the story of the OVAs will be but if I had to take a guess it would be Hayate protects Nagi from whatever trouble she gets herself into while fighting off the advances of Hinagiku, Maria and every other girl who has been throwing themselves at him for the last hundred or so episodes of the anime. 

As I said earlier though, I know that I will be watching these episodes even if they aren't particularly good as my completion complex just won't let me skip over them. Damn me and complexes!
