Of all the anime I’ve seen, there are ones that i have liked and others that i haven’t liked so much. But to choose an anime that i’m ASHAMED i enjoyed required a lot of thinking. After much thought and reflection, i was finally able to agree upon Hayate the Combat Butler.
As the name suggests, the story follows the adventures of Hayate, who serves as the Butler of the rich Sanzenin household, in order to gain enough money to repay the enormous debt left by his parents. His duties involve protecting the sole heir of the Sanzenin family, Nagi from any danger. Hence the word combat in the name.
The story is completely ridiculous. Actually, there isn’t much of a story at all. There’s loads of comedy in it though, which might be the reason i enjoyed it. I’m not even sure what genre this anime would fall in. It’s got harem, shojo, action,.. basically a mix of a lot of genres. The cast mostly consists of female characters. I think there are only two male characters in it, aside from Hayate(?).
I don’t think i even finished this anime, but i did enjoy the episodes that i did see. It was a long time ago, when i had just been introduced to the anime world.
Some scenes of the anime are completely ludicrous, only for the viewer’s entertainment. There’s no logic whatsoever. All the characters are likable but have their own quirks. You will have to leave your brains behind while watching it, but if you do that, you may enjoy it very much.
If you knew me, you’d be completely surprised that i watched this anime, as my tastes in anime are nothing like this. I now enjoy intelligent anime with an impressive story and characters, not some illogical anime with a mediocre story purely for entertainment. That being said, i somehow still ended up really liking this anime. Maybe that’s because at that time, my standards of anime were not that high ( I hadn’t even seen Death Note at that time!).
But what about you all? What is that one anime that you’re ashamed you enjoyed? We won’t judge i promise. 😉
