TRUE fist of the nose hairs!

Title: Bobobo~bo Bo~bobo
Genre: Comedy/Sci-Fi
Length: Not sure total..Only 5 have been fansubbed.
Format: .avi

Another insane no sense comedy series I enjoyed. It's more none sensical than Guu, but maybe not as random as Puni Puni Poemi, definatly rivals it though.

The plot is set early on. In the future a weird organization called the hair snatchers is..well..stealing everyones hair and ruining their 'parties'. During one of these hair raids, a pink haired girl named Beauty is almost attacked by one of the hair snatchers, only to be saved by Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, our yellow afro'd hero. A deep voice and awesome presence it was a huge parody of Fist of the North Star, but it became clear quickly things were different from Bobobo-bo compared to Fist of the north star. For one thing, instead of fists and physicalities, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo used his nose hair to battle. He'd use his nose hair in strange techniques and awesome "True Fist of the Nose Hair" style moves to defeat the hair snatchers.

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo seems to have a plethora of mini-people inside his afro, and head, and nose, and armpits..and everywhere. Sometimes his afro will pop open and things like Graduating classes and J-rock groups will appear.

Beauty is the girl Bobobo-bo saved early on, and seems to be the only truely rational person of the series so far.

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo runs into a weird sun with hands creature called Don Pachi, who is just as whacky and insane as Bobobo-bo.

The character cast isn't that endeeering but that's not what kinda anime this is.

The animation is okay, nothing special though. Some may be put off from the extreme whackiness and no sense plot but if you're into that. (As I am) it's nice to add to your collection.

UNFORTUNATLY - There's only 5 episodes subbed..and the series has been out for a while. Unless someone else subs it, or it somehow gets licensed. I may never get to see the rest of this funny series.

Animation: 8
Characters: 8
Story: 6
Sound: 8
Music: 5
Total Review: 7/10

Nothing revolutionary but if you're into the genre, it's good stuff.
