its not Excel Saga
17 June 2006 | by MidgarmercSee all my reviews

...really if I could summarize Bobobo-Bo-bo-bobo in a few words I would say... biggest pile of random rubbish ever manifested. Since the beginning of my existence I have had a passion for Japanese animation, I've seen much of what can be seen in anime and usually enjoyed it. A very common thing in anime is the bizarre inhuman scenario and many times the bizarre part turns into insanity. By insanity I mean the show doesn't make any freaking sense but instead tries to be funny. The series goes from possible story to spontaneous explosions of randomness. Such is the case in Bobobo in which the show tries to be funny by having random things happening ALL of the time... and I mean ALL of the time, so much so that the show becomes incomprehensible, unfunny, unrelentingly abysmal that the fact that its random anime doesn't help it from becoming a piece of nonsense. Let me elaborate, Bobobo attempts to appeal to kid audiences by having multiple fart jokes and cheap puns over and over again. For example, they're fighting someone and then the main character will do something idiotic/homosexual the attack (if it is an attack) will then be blocked by the even more random enemy and then the female character will pop out of the side with the same EXACT face she had the last time she was shocked and say something like "THATS YOUR MASTER PLAN!?!?" in the exact same tone of voice that she had the lst thousand times she did it in the same episode. Sometimes the story will just completely stop and it will go to some random side story about something random that has no humor in it and no merit to the story. This is by far the worst form of storytelling ever conceived, there's nothing worse than when anime attempts to cash in by having spontaneous randomness, fan service, mindless action, or cute characters. Mind you that is not to say that there haven't been great anime that fall into those territories. FLCL and Excel Saga are incredibly random but they have humor because they have a plot, stick with a blend of surreal down-to-earth behaviors and actions, and are funny still. DBZ was mindless action but it was still decent and had a decent story (up until Cell). And I cannot even begin to name all the anime that were good but have fan-service. As for the cute characters, Azumanga Daioh has the cutest characters ever drawn and its one of the best anime ever. Though you might hear it a lot this time its true, the English dub is horrendous in Bobobo, loud, untalented, and annoying. The sound consists mostly of explosions, and other assorted amounts of random sounds. The animation is the cliché Japanese animation adding nothing new to the roster other than a talking sun thing and a blue gumbi. I just cant recommend anything about this anime to ANYBODY, Adults will hate it for its childish demeanor, Teens will hate it for its pointless jokes, Kids will hate it for its not being funny. In fact, I guarantee that if you let a child watch this show you will damage his/her brain for life. If this ever comes out on DVD I suggest you go to your local Best Buy and kick anybody who buys it... no wait then you'd actually be acknowledging it's existence. stay away from this piece of rubbish 1/10 Abysmal
