"Can't Take My Eyes Off" Latest "Combat Butler" Series

If there is one thing I can always count on, it's big laughs from Kenjiro Hata's creation Hayate the Combat Butler. Starting off as a hilarious manga, it spawned two equally-funny anime series and a good (but not great) movie that followed the misadventures of the debt-ridden butler Hayate, the young Nagi, and the wise young Maria. This past October a new series began airing entitled Hayate the Combat Butler!: Can't Take My Eyes Off You, which instead of following the manga has an entirely original story created by Hata with elements that didn't make it into the manga.

**WARNING: MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS**

In a scene straight out of The Hangover the show begins in Las Vegas, where Nagi is all alone in a broken-down car and her butler nowhere to be found. After screaming at a cactus and hurting herself in a comedic trifecta it's revealed that Hayate is no longer her butler. How it happens is not yet explained, as the show then flashes back to a couple weeks before the event in Nevada. Maria receives a call from America, with news of Nagi's late father's belongings being discovered in Vegas. Nagi at first doesn't seem to care much about going to collect her dad's things, until a young girl named Ruri appears to her and Hayate claiming to be her little sister.
