Hayate: The Combat Butler – Season 1 (Blu-ray)

Region: A & B (Confirmed Playable in the UK)
– Tested and Confirmed Region B Compatible

Price: $53.99 / £41.35

Episodes: 1 – 52 (6 Discs)

Plot:  Could Hayate Ayasaki’s life get any unluckier? As if it wasn’t bad enough that he’s had to work constantly in order to support his good-for-nothing parents, now he’s lost his job for being underage and Mom and Pop have cashed in their cash cow by selling him to the Yakuza. For Christmas!

Desperate to pay off the 156,804,000 yen debt before he’s converted into black market organ parts, Hayate strikes on the idea of kidnapping oddball heiress Nagi Sanzenin. Unbelievably, however, even that goes wrong and not only does he end up not kidnapping her, he rescues her from other kidnappers. (Apparently this happens to her all the time.) But maybe, just maybe, there might be a tiny, dim light at the end of the very dark tunnel of Hayate’s existence, and the skills that Hayate’s had to develop to stay alive will pay off.

Because Nagi needs a butler/bodyguard and Hayate could just fit the bill. Assuming he can survive the on-the-job training, of course. Fate can be a harsh mistress, but Hayate may have just signed up with an even harsher one!
