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 unexpeceted...you must watch to find read more

I tried my best to watch a few episodes of this anime and i am a subscriber to shonen jump thus I'll occasionally read the manga.,,,,dreadful. I really don't like it at all. normally I'm pretty open to this kind of storyline., but i dropped this one after maybe the 5th episode. I'm sorry but i think it sucked. please remember though that this is my opinion and yours and other most likely differ. P.S - the thing that really got me was his hair and the way he uses it.

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.
