A series of Hayate no Gotoku! (ハヤテのごとく!,Hayate no Gotoku!?) light novels, based on the manga by Kenjiro Hata, have been published. Unlike the anime, each volume has an original story that extends the universe of the manga (except for the novelization of Heaven Is a Place on Earth). Like other Hayate No Gotoku media, the novels still contain many references and parodies of other anime and manga. Unlike the manga, the individual volumes don't continue where the previous left off. All of the volumes are published by Shogakukan, under the GAGAGA Bunko label.
