The upcoming combined 2nd/3rd volume of Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is announcing that a theatrical anime film adaptation of Kenjirou Hata’s Hayate the Combat Butler manga has been launched.

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.

First-time director Hideto Komori (animation director of Darker than BLACK, Ergo Proxy, House of Five Leaves) is heading the project along with Manglobe, the studio responsible for the first 2 anime series. Yasuko Kobayashi (Kamen Rider Ryuki, Kamen Rider Den-O, Blassreiter, Casshern Sins, Claymore, Shakugan no Shana) will be doing the script.
