Here is what bobobo is.

a strange show following a gang of fighters rebeling against an tyranical army attempting to rid the world of hair. The characters are armed with the powers of nose hair, jelly, gas and lots of other things. there is very little sense to be had. Almost every main character acts in strange ways with even stranger powers.

If that sounds good to you then give it a watch. Its a hilarious and imaginative show.
If not then don't watch it. It will give you headaches trying to stick with it.

nothing too revolutionary in terms of art and sound but nothing that will read more

This anime is crazy. But thats why you have to love it. It is pretty much a gag on all other anime out there. Pulling jokes on everything

Most of the time this anime doesnt make sense. And the ultimate story is pretty stupid. but like I said it suppose to be. Its like Scrubs to ER...or better example Reno 911 to COPS.

Its inane, everything in it is for pure humor. Its not suppose to make sense. So don't judge it by its lame art story and characters. Because thats how its suppose to be.

I really thought the ending was something...completely must watch to find read more

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo is about accepting yourself as you are. The Hair Hunters represent the pressure of the societal norms and other people's expectations of you. By giving in, you become a sad bald man; Bo-bobo is a shining example of being true to yourself.
Nose hair stands for everything that is deemed disgusting by society, but is still an important part of ourselves. By using his nose hair as a fighting tool against the Hair Hunters, Bo-bobo demonstrates acknowledging your faults and turning them into advantages. Great anime, great message, 10/10.

There is one word what this anime is all about. Crazy. Crazy in a Great Way.

Bobobo-Bo Bo-bobo is not about "lolsrandom funny jokes", No. Bobobo-Bo Bo-bobo is honestly a cross between "The Tick", "Deadpool" & "Robot Chicken" but in an anime flavor, 76 episodes of pure hilarity is what the good doctor ordered. They easily spoof anime such as "Dragon Ball", "Sailor Moon", "Fist of the North Star" (Hence the Fist of the Nose Hair) and easily western pop-culture like "2001: A Space Odyssey", "Ghostbusters" and "Spongebob Squarepants". The fourth wall in the show was well handled, including the fact it had the characters realized read more

Anime: Heppoko Jikken Animation Excel Saga
If you like crazy, manic humor with no regard for the plot, then you'll love both of these shows. Both of these shows pull jokes out of no where and are both quite heavy on the slap-stick.

Both shows parody other anime series. They're both random, high-paced and very funny.

The random stupid humor is astounding. . . . . .and humorous. . .

Both are pretty random. BoBo-Bo and Harima also look similar with their glasses and are the most random people on the show.

Anime: Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoiyo!! Masaru-san
Both series exhibit a bizarre, nonsense brand of humor. Neither series makes the slightest bit of sense, but are utterly hilarious.

Anime: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
they both have ridiculously random but hilarious moments that make you wonder 'what the hell is going on?' they are really enjoyable so i don't think you will get bored watching either of them because they are just THAT amusing. ;D
