Hayate no Gotoku author, Hata Kenjirou, has recently asked fans of the manga (via his twitter account) to point out elements of the unresolved foreshadowing so far they would like to see addressed in future chapters. This way, Hata hopes to prepare a list and make sure he doesn’t leave any loose plot threads unresolved (a viable concern with a manga title that has been running for several years now, and is planned to run several more if all goes well).
What followed was a veritable waterfall of tweets. But of course, Hata probably wouldn’t mind more suggestions.

Hata also hinted he might reveal more information on his Twitter account at a later date.
A feature-length Hayate no Gotoku movie was screened in Japanese theaters last year and a third season of the Hayate no Gotoku anime has already been announced. What new surprise is Hata preparing for his fans?
