Deep Space, many different cultures have come together to live on planet Jet. To keep the peace an organization known as the Jetters is formed. This space police group fight against the villains known as the "Hige hige dan" making sure that the universe is safe. The leader of the Jetters Mighty is a powerful Bomberman, who is looked up to and respected....his brother however is a lazy crude slacker named Shirobon. Suddenly Mighty disappears and Shiro finds himself placed in a new situation. Shiro steps up and become a responsible Bomberman, and with the new friends he made of the Jetters it may become possible for him to be the next "Jetters leader."
Bomberman, if you liked the game then you will like the anime. You may think that it is a bit childish, that's what I thought as well until one of the main characters die. It is much darker than your normal kid animes. It is very touching about a Shirobon trying to grow up into a Bomberman.
Warning this may not suit those who like bishies in the anime and intricate drawing. It's just something you watch if you like cute little things throwing bombs around.
The animation is good quality, and the drawings are cute ^_^
I especially like the big heads and
I don't really notice the sounds as much, so no comment on that. The voice characters of Shirobon is very cute and suits him very well, I especially like it when he goes "Daijoubu" too cute! Mighty and Max's voice is done by the same person that does the voice character Harima Kenji in school rumble and Hisoka from Hunter X Hunter, he is very talented indeed.
Overall it is not a bad watch, I'll advise you to watch it after you watched everything else and still have a lot of time to spare. Bomberman = cuteness, the game is very addictive.

This is one of the most Epic Video Game based animes I've ever seen,based on the popular japanes video game series from Hudson Soft,Bomberman Jetters is a 52 episode anime tv series
Unlike Most video game animes which adapt storylines directly from the games such as Sonic X,Kirby right back at ya! or Megaman NT Warrior,ect. Bomberman Jetters on the other hand featured a totally new original storyline not based on any Bomberman games where Shirobon is a member of a space police group called the Jetters and has an older brother named Mighty who disapeared on his last mission to fight the Hige Hige bandits.
meets a girl named Shout,who has bad tolerance for white bomber at first,but soon become friends,the other team members Shirobon meets are Birdy,Bongo and Gangu,and together each episode,they fight off Mujo and the Hige Hige bandits with the" Monster of the week" formula
however,it may be childish,but the storyplot gets much darker when Max is introduced, a Rival and enemey to Shirobon,and soon Shiro will learn the truth about the disapearance of his brother.
This is my review for Bomberman Jetters, spoiler-free. I first found Bomberman Jetters by playing the game. Later, I found that there was an anime adaptation of Bomberman Jetters and watched it. It was two years ago then since I last watched it. So I decided to write a review for a relatively unknown anime that some had come to like.
The story starts off rather silly and well, periodic with their monster of the week formula and silly objective of protecting the one-of-a-kind item in the universe! Sounds silly enough. It even has running gags that the characters point out. However, it has a
sad tone to it when the main titular character, Shirobon, or known as White Bomber, finds out what really happened to his brother, Mighty. Even with the sad parts, it retains its light-hearted nature. Since this anime is a kodomo anime, meant for kids, you really will not take the anime seriously. So if you do not mind the story littered with mostly humour at the beginning and towards the end, watch this. The ending was heartening and lively, so I gave it an 8. Another funny interesting thing is, they seem to point out the out-of-place things, hence another funny part of the series.
Okay, this is probably the anime's weak spot. Upon re-watching the series, I realised how little sound tracks the anime had used. They are constantly being overused. At least about 5 or 7 tracks. Sometimes, they also place it there to be more 'dramatic' in the sense but it will a bit ruin it. But I gave it a 7 for putting the music there when it is needed. It does not neglect that need. Especially the ending. As for the OPs, the songs are very catchy and easy to like to. EDs are soothing though for me, I rarely watch EDs.
I am not a art freak, but this anime was produced about seven years ago in 2003. The colours are bright/colourful and sometimes animation clips were reused, mainly Shirobon's "BOMBERRRR SHOOT!" It IS an kodomo anime, so bright colours are expected. Not so bright as Heartcatch Pretty Cure though >_> It is alright. One more thing everyone asks, why do the Bomberman have no mouths? Who knows... The animation quality is not bad, with it being fluid at the most important parts.
Shirobon starts off as your average ten year old who is arrogant, naive to the world. His arrogance still continues, however later on he will turn out to be a likeable character. There are many other characters who shine and yet some who don't. Gangu and Bongo are comic relief characters, though they help the team at some point. Birdy is your awesome behind-the-scenes character who supports the team. That doesn't mean the cool guy doesn't have a weakness. Though there isn't any characters you would want to hate, especially the Shitennou. They were hilarious and fun to watch, though they had to die off.
Honestly, I had enjoyed this anime. It was humourous and enlightening. It teaches you how to go on with life and what not, strangely for a kid's anime. The ending was so good that I really liked it a lot. The anime is really great and it is such a shame that it is overshadowed just because of its initial kiddyness and not taking things seriously beginning. It is a good watch, for anyone who wishes to have some humour yet have some thick plot. Ok, maybe not THAT thick.
It is a good anime, but I will not be biased to raise the score too high. Overall I had fun with Bomberman Jetters with relative pacing and giving me laughs. The battles are one-shot and all. Bomberman Jetters is fresh and nicely paced. Not everyone may agree though, this is PURELY my opinion. First review as well.
