It looks like the anime industry is pushing forward with more anime movies from Fullmetal Alchemist to Strike Witches. Now Hayate the combat butler will be getting it's own anime film. For those who don't know, the story follows a boy named Hayate who serves as a butler, bodyguard, confidante, and more to a girl named Nagi to pay off a 156,804,000-yen (about US$1.8-million) debt.
The film will be director by Hideto Komori, who done animation directing for Darker than Black
, studio Manglobe
will be covering the animation, done work on Samurai Champloo
and right now The World God Only Knows
Yasuko Kobayashi, who done work on Casshern Sins
, and Shana
, will be doing the scripting.
From reading these guys past works and having knowledge of the Hayate's storyline, I have a good feeling for this film and hope that it will come over to over seas.
