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.

I could watch this foolishness over and over all day. Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo has infinite “crackhead energy.” This is a show that is equally as fun in both the dub and sub. The first season actually has a semblance of a plot and multiple callbacks to random flashbacks. Nothing here makes sense, and that is its true beauty.

I like light-hearted, quirky characters, so watching this show has always been a blast for me. If you don't like slapstick and zany characters, your enjoyment will probably skew much lower than mine.

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. There isn't really a story so much as an engine to kick the comedy into overdrive, a ridiculous shonen premise with absolutely no breaks between the gag-filled battles ... most of the time.

Preliminary (20/76 eps)
TL;DR Version: This anime is SHIT! It's just random for the sake of being random, not for laughs.

Semi-long Version:
First of all, don't listen to the people who say, "if you take so-and-so seriously, you don't understand this show's comedy." They're just trying to justify their pretentious attitude and make you out to look like a fool. For comedy in general, you NEVER take it seriously. You just go in and if the jokes fall under your personal preference, you laugh. If you don't, you don't. THAT is what comedy's about. I don't need to be reminded that the show's a comedy. It's just not MY ...
