So here we are. Here’s the final chapter of Hayate no Gotoku. It’s sad to see your favourite manga end, but such is life. I can’t say that I’m totally satisfied with the ending, but Hata’s been hinting at that ending for some time, so I won’t say it came as a surprise.
Hayate no Gotoku was the series that got me started on scanlation almost 7 years ago and it’s hard to fathom that it’s not gonna be part of my life anymore. I want to thank all of the people that have worked on Hayate no Gotoku over the years. If it weren’t for them, I probably wouldn’t be here today. A big thanks goes out to js06 for translating Hayate no Gotoku for so many years – it’s some serious dedication to translating this series, which I can only admire. Thanks also goes out to Hidden_Detective for providing translations of Hayate no Gotoku back when I started up. Furthermore, I have to thank the guys from Red Hawk Scanlation for allowing me to join and work on Hayate for a long period of time and teaching me the ways of proper scanlation, especially takadanama, Vaelis, otamega, kundumstaf, Naselare, lefty, kprsr, FKS and probably a few others I might’ve forgotten over the course of time. Last, but not least, I want to thank Hata for being the mangaka of Hayate no Gotoku and having provided me (and hopefully a lot of other people) with fun and entertainment for a very long time.
Lastly, I hope you enjoy this final chapter, even if the end is not to your liking, and hope you’ll support Hata by buying the final volumes when they’re released in june. Thank you for reading Hayate no Gotoku.
