User Reviews

Unlike any anime that's ever been made before.
1 April 2008 | by emasterslakeSee all my reviews

In the year 31x5, an evil syndicate called the "Hair Hunt Troops" commence in world domination by shaving everyone's heads bald. But in their way of concurring is a resistance leader named "Bobobo-bo Bo-Bobo". A muscular afro man who has the ability to hear the words of any set of hair. He's vow to put a stop to this syndicate's evil plot by defeating all of it's members including the big boss himself, Lord Baldy Bald IV.

This may sound like a simple idea for an anime. But it's unlike anything you'll ever imagine. It's randomly plotted, for instance nothing is serious as it's both a slapstick comedy and a crazy adventure all mixed into one series. The thing that makes this anime stick out more than the others is it's cast of bazaar characters and unpredictable moments that no one would guess would happen.

With only 76 episodes and very little publicity in the U.S.A. Bobobo may seem unpopular, but in my opinion it's something to keep anyone occupied and get a laugh at the same time. Please be advised that this isn't an anime to think too much about or make any sense what so ever. I can't guarantee that it be anyone's instant favorite. Cause it's more suited as a like it or hate it series.

The whole series was originally going to be released by this one company on DVD. But they ended up going bankrupted. And the future of more releases of the series is unknown. I only hope one day the whole series will be release on a couple of box sets. Depending if any anime distributor would pick up the rights of it's English and Japanese version.
