    Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo ( ƒ{ƒ{ƒ{[ƒ{Eƒ{[ƒ{ƒ{ )
    TV Asahi/Toei Animation, 2003
    U.S. Distributor Pending
    Directed by Hiroki Shibata (Getter Robo Go, Sailor Moon Super S Movie)
    Not Rated (Suggested 13-Up). Contains violence, suggestive drug use and a lot of tasteless humor.

    In a world terrorized by bald savages left and right, one man dares to defy them with his blond afro and ridiculously long nasal hair. His name: Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.

    Story: B
    For years, there have been anime titles that have tested the limits of crack, such as Excel Saga, FLCL and Sexy Commando Gaiden. But Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo will probably take the cake as the most messed-up anime ever conceived. Is there a plot on this one? Maybe not. Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo is filled with numerous potty jokes that may be hazardous to your brain.

    Animation: C-
    WTF were the animators at Toei smoking? You got bad guys that look like Dragon Ball Z rejects and a Kenshiro wannabe that uses his nasal hair as his finishing attack. The animation quality looks better than Sexy Commando Gaiden, but it's still borderline crap. You probably have to be drunk to distinguish most of the colors.

    Soundtrack: B+
    While the BGM is average, but the opening and ending themes rock.

    Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo features Takehito Koyasu (Il Palazzo in Excel Saga, Gamlin in Macross 7) as Bobobo-bo, Ai Nonaka (Shima in Cosmic Stellvia, Hororo in Bottle Fairy) as Beauty, Masaya Onosaka (Vash the Stampede in Trigun) as Don Patch, and Shinichiro Ota (Speedy in Avenger) as the narrator.

    The Bottom Line
    Sexy Commando has finally met his match. Watch Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo at your own risk.
