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.

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

Mixed Feelings
Featuring the antics of a very hairy man and his equally silly sidekicks in their stand against an evil balding empire, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo is as zany and over-the-top as it gets.

Preliminary (42/76 eps)
An anime so bad that it compelled me to join this site just to negatively review it.

I don't know where to begin with this show. It's a constant assault on the senses with very little substance or strong points. The only strength this show has that I can mention without grasping at straws is that it is somewhat 'creative'. Like children's imagination creative, or horrible fever dream creative. I'm about 40ish episodes in now, forced to watch this through with a friend who is somehow enjoying it so far, please shoot me.

I'll start with story. Now, the show DOES ...
