In a futuristic world, the Maruhage Empire is a militant organization out to steal everyone's hair, and thus their freedom. But a brave man with an afro of gold and nose hairs of steel stands up against their tyranny. Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, trained in the ways of hair, rescues a teenager named Beauty from the grunts of the Maruhage Empire. Together, they start on a journey to defeat Emperor Tsuru Tsurulina IV. As Bo-bobo meets new friends and battles foes along the way, so too does he begin his quest to save all the hairs of the world!

Light-hearted and comical, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo details a wacky adventure in which Bo-bobo and his companions fight all sorts of villains and deviants within the Maruhage Empire, all the while having a fun and exciting adventure.

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

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

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.

Unique art style
Memorable characters
Great soundtrack
Tons of unforgeable moments

Won't appeal to a wide audience
Ends on cliffhanger

The story is simple and fun. I thought it moved at a good pace. It's the kind of show you can put on hold for a while without worrying abut forgetting what happened. I like how every episode was different from the next.

The art is excellent, the cartoony character designs suited the show very well. I never come across an anime that looked quite like it.The exaggerated facial features are the funnest I've seen.

The voice acting is top notch, Richard Epcar,Kirk Thornton, Jamison Price, there are a ton read more
