Hayate the Combat Butler Manga Reaches 17 Million Copies

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The cover of the Hayate no Gotoku! Nyūmon-han O-yashiki-hen book revealed that 17 million copies of the Hayate the Combat Butler manga are in circulation. Kenjirō Hata launched the series in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in 2005, and Shogakukan will publish the 34th volume of the slapstick-comedy series on October 18. Viz published the 20th volume in North America this month.

The manga has inspired three television series and a movie. The third anime series, Hayate the Combat Butler: Can't Take My Eyes Off You, will premiere in Japan on Wednesday, and Crunchyroll will stream it as it airs in Japan.
