If you have been following the manga, you would notice that Hayate no Gotoku! - Cuties (season 4 of the series) has been using material from:

  • "Filler" manga chapters (where plot stalls for character development) for most part of the episodes.
  • 4-koma style manga from Colorful Hayate no Gotoku! or from the flaps of the dust-jacket of the tankōbon for the CM Connecting Theater (CM Matagi Gekijou).

Can anyone provide a list of manga chapters that is animated per episode?

The titles of the chapters are arrange in order of appearance in the anime. The anime also added some original content to create smooth transition between unrelated chapters.

In order not to confuse viewer (?), even though the anime draws material from various arcs in the manga, they are modified (sometimes heavily) to fit the pretext that all characters have known each other, and with all the details involving the plot (from where the chapter comes from) removed.

Chapter titles are taken from Wikipedia - List of Hayate the Combat Butler chapters. Title of 4-koma manga are taken from scanslation.
