Hayate no Gotoku is the stupidly funny, fourth wall breaking romantic comedy that somehow manages to follow one of my least favorite anime cliche's and still entertain me.
Despite this anime falling under one of my biggest pet peeves in Slice-of-Life anime, it's one of the few where I can stand it. Hayate no Gotoku is just so stupidly funny that it doesn't always matter if the episode has no plot because I'm too busy laughing like a loon to care.
This anime does have some issues--namely that it has over 52 episodes and only about 20 of those episodes actually has anything to do with the plot. It's incredibly slow and I sometimes feel like they don't go anywhere. That being said, it's still enjoyable and I would rate it a 6.5/10 with a recommendation of anyone who enjoy Japanese culture, romantic high-jinks and ensuing fourth wall breaking hilarity to watch it.
