Story 8/10
Extremely nonsensical, but still manages to be very funny. Likes to parody other shonen manga.

Art 3/10
Art overall is not good. Shading is clearly done in a way to imitate early parts of Jojo or Fist of the North Star. Unfortunately, the hatching often makes no sense when you consider the lighting of the environment.

Character designs are unique and memorable. How can you forget a man with a poop shaped head, a walking jelly blob, and a 'sexy' bipedal torpedo? I rest my case.

Character 10/10
There's a clear cut line between the sane and insane characters, and that's what makes this manga funny.

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo was one of my favorite anime, and still is. The non-sensical Hajike that the trio of Bobobo, Don Patch, and Tennosuke, alongside Heppokomaru and Beauty's tsukommi is something that's probably never going to be replicated again.

A lot of the manga is quite cluttered, with honestly, yes, rough drawing that isn't exactly pretty to look at. However, it maintains the craziness that it needs to, and despite the cluttered backgrounds and panels, they're full of action and excitement. There's so much going on that it's actually hard to keep track of what's going on. So many parodies, references, and jokes flew over my head ...
