Anime Description: Hayate the Combat Butler

At the age of 16, Hayate Ayasaki is at the lowest and cruelest point of his life. He is abandoned by his (lazy and irresponsible) parents and given an astronomically large debt. Out of desperation, Hayate attempts to kidnap a wealthy young girl named Nagi for ransom, though Nagi misunderstands his actions as a confession of love.

His plans are blown after Hayate rescues her from the Yakuza. Hayate, realizing what he did wrong, is given a job as a Butler out of gratitude for saving her life. Now along with Hayate's new duties as a butler, he must protect Nagi from enemies seeking to gain control of her family's fortune.

Dorothy, Ginta, and Nanashi from MÄR: Marchen Awakens Romance were all featured briefly in this anime, Dorothy and Ginta in episode 5 and Nanashi in episode 13.
