Voiced By Mitsuo Iwata

Akane Himegami (姫神 茜 Himegami Akane?) was Nagi Sanzenin's butler before she met Hayate Ayasaki in the SynergySP Timeline.


Himegami has red hair which is tied in two braids with two ribbons in the front and grey eyes.

He is always wearing a mask and he wears a butler's uniform.


From the way Nagi Sanzenin and Maria spoke of Himegami, it was hinted that he quit due to a problem related to Nagi's personality traits. Neither Nagi nor Maria seem to want to elaborate on his departure. He wrote a book on how a butler can acquire a one-hit kill technique, but later Nagi burnt the book (due to jealousy of Hayate Ayasaki mentioning Hinagiku Katsura). Maria addresses him with the title "-kun", which means he is probably around Hayate and Maria's age.

Appearances in Other Media

SynergySP Timeline

Himegami wearing his mask

In episode 34 of the anime, Himegami makes his appearance, but with his face obscured by shadows. He returns once more in episode 38 wearing a mask. In episode 39 his face is fully shown. In the anime, it is stated that he was fired from his position rather than him personally resigning, and it is implied that it is partially because he always hits Nagi Sanzenin back after she would hit him, because she won't listen to his advice to defeat the ungrateful heathens. He also insists that he be called "Princess God" (in English) rather than Himegami, which is a direct translation of his surname. He claims that he will one day save the world and used Hayate Ayasaki to get the gold butler uniform, one of 3 more he is seeking to get the legendary god butler dragon (this plot was not explored any further in the anime for unknown reasons). 

He is seen holding a banana in the second opening of Hayate No Gotoku!.


  • The name Akane means "deep red, dye from the rubia plant" (茜).
  • Akane's surname Himegami means "princess, young lady of noble birth" (姫) (hime) and "god, deity" (神) (kami/gami).
    • It can also mean "god-princess" backwards.


Himegami's appearance before being edited out in the tankōbon version

  • Before the tankōbon versions release, Himegami originally made a brief appearance on the bottom panel at the end of Chapter 146, but it was later taken out and replaced with the panel of Hayate Ayasaki and Nagi Sanzenin holding hands.
  • Himegami tries to tell Nagi to call him "Princess God".
