The media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it will stream the Hayate the Combat Butler! Cuties (Hayate no Gotoku! Cuties) television anime series. Crunchyroll will stream the series on Mondays starting on April 8 at 1:35 pm. EDT for members worldwide outside of Asia.
Masashi Kudo returns from Hayate the Combat Butler: Can't Take My Eyes Off You to direct the anime at Manglobe, and he also handles the character designs. Yooichi Ueda will take on the role of series director, while Rie Koshika is in charge of the scripts.
Shizuka Itou, who also plays Hinagiku Katsura in the series, is singing the anime's opening theme song "Haru ULALA ♡ LOVE yo Koi!!!" Each episode of the love-comedy anime will follow different characters and a different "route." The ending theme song will change in each episode as well. The cast from previous seasons is also returning.
The anime will premiere in Japan on April 8.
Kenjirou Hata's original manga already inspired the first Hayate the Combat Butler television anime (2007-2008) and its Hayate the Combat Butler!! follow-up (2009). The Hayate the Combat Butler: Can't Take My Eyes Off You (Hayate no Gotoku! Can't Take My Eyes Off You) television anime aired last year.
Crunchyroll has been streaming all three of the previous television series.
