Bang! Bang! Groom Groom!
Desperate to pay off his parents' 156,804,000 yen debt to the Yakuza (lest they take back the collateral in the form of his organs), Hayata Ayasaki strikes on the idea of kidnapping oddball heiress Nagi Sanzenin for the ransom money. But his bad luck persists - his plans are foiled when he winds up rescuing her from other kidnappers. This might be where his luck changes, though, because Nagi requires the service of a butler/bodyguard, and Hayate could fit the bill (assuming he survives on-the-job training, of course). Fate can be harsh mistress, but Hayate may be serving a harsher one as the epic comedy series begins in Hayate the Combat Butler!
