Synopsis

"Bobby really does little else but work on his bike. He cleans his bike. He tunes up his bike. He rides his bike. One would call him a motorcycle otaku. His most recent achievement seems to have been getting photos of himself on a road trip printed in a motorcyclist hobby magazine. This leads to an unexpected result: a girl his age, who picked up that issue on a whim, decides to write him a letter. A long, rambling letter, but dreamily romantic just the same. Bobby admits to his sister that he's never gotten a letter from a girl before. He writes back, "I got your letter. I'm happy cause it was from a girl."

The "Bobby" referred to in the title is actually 17-year-old Akihiko Nomura, an underachieving high school kid with a deep love for motorcycles. His grades are failing, and his father – traditional and strict (but who must have also at some point gave in and allowed him to have a motorcycle) is trying everything he can think of to get the kid to apply for college. His mother is so silent, she might as well not even exist. Really, his support system lies entirely in his twinkle-toed little sister, who's nosy but cheers him on in her own way."

Bobby’s in Deep iis actually based on a novel that came out in 1980, and does have some significant differences in the anime release that came out 5 years later. Some of those differences are that in addition to Bobby’s passion for motorcycles, he’s also a beach bum surfer and it was more emphasized that he was more of a surfer than a biker, and he got a job at a surfing shop rather than as a waiter. Plus, it’s also elaborated in the novel by this girl who is writing to Bobby is suffering from an illness while it’s pure curiosity in the anime read more

Bobby ni Kubittake, or "Bobby's in Deep, feels much like an experimental film as it tests many different artistic techniques and tosses them all together. First of all, this is a mid-80's movie, so the base style of visuals and sound should be understood before looking beyond. A lot of the experience feels synonymous from other things made around the time to an extent, but Bobby's in Deep is different in its execution and its direction. It presents a setup that doesn't feed the viewer everything off a silver platter and expects a bit of focus and thinking to understand everything that's going on and read more

Bobby's in deep is certainly a very interesting work - short and experimental, but it holds a lot of content, animation and background themes wise. Which is a bit surprising, considering the fact that the anime was largely produced to promote a young pop idol, who voiced the main character.

Bobby has a pretty plain personality and he's also a man of few words. This somehow rubs off on many of the anime's characteristics. It's interesting, that most of what we get to learn about Bobby is not from him personally, but through the girl that is writing him letters, trough his father that's scolding him read more

Bobby ni Kubittake is bland and uninspiring slog through 44 minutes of the most contrived romance and terrible characterization that the world has ever seen. It goes for the "rebel boy" Image with their main character, Bobby, who's blandness is one of the 8 wonders of the modern world, but they fail because the "rebel boy" image is so tired and overused, it just seems like he's conforming to a tired stereotype. The main word I like to use when discussing this pitiful display is "tired", there's just nothing to say about it. It's so bland, that bland can't properly summarize how bland it is. read more
