Since the tender age of nine, Hayate Ayasaki has busted his behind at various part-time jobs to support his degenerate gambler parents. And how do they repay their son’s selfless generosity? By selling his organs to the yakuza to cover their debts! But fate throws Hayate a bone…sort of. Now the butler of a wealthy young lady, Hayate can finally pay back his debts, and it’ll only take him 40 years to do it.
The life of a combat butler was hard enough when Hayate had only one mistress. Now that he’s waiting on an entire houseful of girls, his service skills are being truly tested. Whether he’s escorting ultra-geeky new resident Kayura around town, teaching pop star Ruka to ride or die, or scraping up the funds to treat the whole gang to barbecue, Hayate is prepared for any challenge. But can he take on his most formidable one yet—a very bad cold?
