Aha Aha..You know what would have made the content of this thread more interesting? If you would have talked about the nose hair being used as whip. Since there is no confirmation of Booboo being licensed, I wonder if a Booboo thread should even exist in the Dvd & Licensed section of the forum.

Where did you hear this rumor?

Until you know for sure someone has licensed it, or can atleast hear beyond a rumour that isn't even on a webpage, don't bother.

Just watched it. It was so stupid, in fact if it wasnt so stupid it'd just be terrible. Just weird.

Yes it is stupid and I love it just like Sakigake Cromartie High!! Anyways I think there is a thread on bbobobobobobobobo already. Use the search button next time. I know who can make you like bobobobobo. Speak to JAppi and youll be brainwashed!!!

Just searched for it myself and I couldn't find a thread on Bobobo~bo Bo~bobo so this thread shall remain here unless anyone can prove me wrong.

I just watched this show myself. It was... well I have to admit that its stupid weirdness was the only thing that saved it from being completely awful. It was just too weird to hate. I don't think I'll be downloading a second episode though.

I believe the thread was started last year prior to the forum software change. My recollection is that an individual wanted one of the fansub groups to pick-up Bobobo but nobody seemed interested at the time. To draw attention to the project that person produced and released a quick and badly translated sub of first show. The forum message thread I'm thinking of was in response to that.

I thought it was great! Could this be the greatest anime epic of all time?! My girlfriend worries about me. The other guy I showed it to immeadiately left town afterwards. But I liked it.

You do need a certain appreciation for utter lunacy to like a show like this. It does make no sense, but then that's the point.

Man, yeah, this was so absurd and crazy, it was great. Dunno if this is worse (or rather better) than Cromartie High. Meh, jsut different in its weirdness. Gotta check out more of both.

After watching it i didnt really know what to say, its just so crazy and sick that its funny in some way :hmm:
Im still unsure if i should continue with this Series or not, but i guess I'll do anyway.

and i thought FLCL was weird :bash:

Totally awesome. Hope Mugen keep up the good work, ep 1 was quality.

The fact this went so long not being subbed makes the oversubbing of dreck like Chrno Crusade even more criminal.

I belive youre referring to this thread (http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=808&highlight=bobobo).

Mugen had been working on ep one since it first aired in november (and had actually planned on doing this series since we first found out there would be an anime, as a couple of us had read the manga). The reason it came out so late was due to a variety of reasons, but it was mostly exams and my own 1 month vacation. Episode 2 should not take nearly as long as the first one, and should be out shortly. :)

Thanks for all the support guys, I can tell this is gonna be one hell of a series. More like Sexy Commando than Cromartie imho though ;)

It was so incredibly awful that it was absolute genius.

It's complete and utterly flippin' nonsese. :twitch: Mind you, I LIKE nonsense... I'm the only person in my group of friends that liked Sexy Commando, for instance. I... think I like Bobobo. I love the opening. But it's just SO damned disconnected and surreal and well, gross....

I'm reserving judgement. I'm a masochist, I'll be getting the second episode. :heh:

Was thinking of a different thread. The one I'm thinking of was specific to the "[BEST] Boboboubo Boubobo - 01 (Subbed).avi" release last November.

Ok, found the thread for it http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=1255

definately falls in the "so bad it's good" group. I'll probably DL ep 2 because I am masochistic!

And I get the feeling Bobobo actually made it to TV because of that awfulness factor.

Gee, I really like Cromartie and Sexy Commando, and Ping Pong Club for that matter. But this one just doesn't do it for me. It didn't do anything unexpected, it was just sort of a shounen adventure with nostril hairs. Oh well.

I loved it. Like one guy said you have to like that kind of disjointed lunacy to like it. My impression was that whoever made it was smoking something while making it because I cant see how anybody could or would come up with something like this in a normal frame of mind. :heh:

i just downloaded ep 1 and 2 last night, the crazier the better, and in that area it looks to be one of the best. gotta watch them tonight.

finally, something that is in the same class with Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nocchi Guu,
however it will be tough to match that shows insanity (Pokutes, and Guu's world in her stomach) that show was awesome.


...


just watched 1 and 2.

1 gave me a weird feeling...i wasnt epecting all that. :twitch:

but the 2nd one was much better and funny as hell...still WTF at times, but it looks to be a hilarious series.

SwiftStar
2004-02-23, 14:21
I didnt think it was possible but the second episode was even more disjointed, nonsensical and absurd than the first. A number of times I was caught between laughing, thinking WTF? and wondering what the hell the people who made this were thinking. I like that the sub group explains the wordplay jokes. I miss pickle though. :heh:

Wow, I've just seen four episodes of this totally surreal anime and I love it!

Other than Miyuki, I never really checked out anything else from the folks at Mugen. But I thought why not? I'll just delete 'em afterwards. I really should give Mugen more respect. I'm thankful enough for Miyuki but they also have some other good stuff.

After watching through it, this one is definitely for keeps. I have never seen anything so random. This is nothing like Guu or the Ping Pong Club. The level of insanity in this show is just over the roof.

Imagine this for a scenario;Bobobo and Beauty goes to a party town where the people have junk foods for their heads! Then all of the sudden, he starts beating the crap out of them. then he was challenged by a creature that takes the form of a dynamite?!?! He won the duel when the dynamite blew itself up. Suddenly, Bobobo's afro opens up to reveal a rock N Roll Band inside!! They were talking about this being their last tour and they will disband and all that nonsense. The band's manager also appearing from the afro, decides to go on a journey in search of new talents. On his way, he made a stop to a convenience store which suddenly blew up sending Beauty spiraling to the air. She wakes up in a dream in which she sees a couple of poodles wearing Bobobo's face!! She wakes up for real this time to discover she was being stalked by a pervert wearing spandex and a duck underwear on top of his head...etc...etc...

How crazy is that?? U prolly don't even know what I'm talking about. Well, I wouldn't understand myself either if I haven't seen the show.

Watched ep 4 and I thought it was nnn... not as funny as the earlier eps, but I still have great hope for this series because I loved the first 3 eps.

Bobobo is my hero. He makes acting like a woman look cool. =)

Oh yeah, and Beauty's eyes are gonna eventually pop outta her head if she keeps on getting surprised at everything. Just go with the flow, girl!

I dunno, I thought it was HILARIOUS. But it seems to be the kind of anime that unless you understand Japanese and its various inflections and such as well as have knowledge of Japanese culture, you might not find it as funny. The episodes that are out subbed now I happened to be in Japan when they aired, and they seemed funnier without the translation. *shrugs* Maybe this show just doesn't translate well? It was a hit amongst us students anyways. We found the "Kanojou hoshii..." part ESPECIALLY hilarious. :D

This show kind of reminds me of Excel Saga, with the spoofing of various genres of anime and Japanese culture in general. Except I didn't really like Excel Saga. o.o

Bobobo always cracks me up, I have no idea why so few people are downloading it. It's one of the most popular animes in Japan right now, and I think it's the most worthwhile download listed on animesuki. I find it even more entertaining than FMA at times, though maybe you can't compare the two. ^^

And of course, I have to give props to the subbers who are doing an excellent job at tackling one of the hardest animes to subtitle. :) The next episode is probably the funniest so far, can't wait to watch it subbed!

Boboboubo Boubobo is great. It's up to 20 eps in Japan now, I think. I've been watching it since ep1.

Granted, ep1 wasn't that great, ep2 a little better... definetly one of those shows that just keeps getting better and better the more you watch it. I think ep16,17 or 18 or something around there was the best ep so far. Well, it does have it's hard parts where I just get headaches from all the colors and stuff. :eyespin:

IMO, I think Bobobo is the funniest anime I've ever seen, but I think it must be an acquired taste; There's lots of people that I know that would rather take Azumanga over this (albeit Azu can be funny at times, but it's not THAT funny compared to Bobobo. I have to tell people all the time that it's really named Bobobo).

I was giddy like a schoolgirl to see #5 come out. It took awhile, but major props to Mugen for tackling such a hard to sub anime.
Right now, I could TOTALLY go for some ochazuke. How about the rest of you?

Bullsquat
2004-08-06, 16:12
For some reason, I just can't stop laughing whenever I get to the part where the Ochazuke alien was holding a picture of the mysterious boy;

"I have to catch and kill this boy. Because...
...sakechazuke...umechazuke...norichazuke...tarako chazuke...taichazuke...
that's why I'm looking for him"

Lol, I'm replaying it over and over again.

Bah. Bobobo destroys Azumanga. I remember one of the funniest parts of Azu TV for me was Sakaki "dating" Chiyo-chan's dad. But the duck dating the panties in Bobobo complete annihilates that scene. :heh: It's just like weirdness x 10!

Bobobo is THE leader in anime comedy. :) Episode is still my favorite episode in the 20 episodes or so I've seen. It's just so, so, so random. And Don Patch is the greatest anime character ever.

I really want this show to be seen by as many people as possible, so it's really too bad that this series may never get licensed, and not many people are downloading it. I mean, how can you not be curious about a show just by seeing a title like that?!

As usual, great fansubbing, Mugen! *sigh* I can only wish the next episode doesn't take another two months, but I guess it's understandable since this show is so friggin' hard to dub with all the puns and floating kanji. ;)

Good news: a new anime company called S'More just licensed and released the first 38 or so episodes on DVD.

Bad news: unfortunately, due to an error, no subtitles are on the release.

Now before you all go into a hissy fit about it, let me explain that they WERE in fact kind enough to include PDF formatted scripts for all the episodes on the Japanese track and that they were kind enough to release the series at all, so don't hate on them just because a mistake happened.
