I think that it's just a sound made by Bonta-kun, that's all.

Fumoffu is everything and nothing all at once. People have spent their lives to find the meaning of Fumoffu. None have live to talk about it.
Actually I don't know. It all that the Bonta-kun say.

If you've seen the show through the third episode, then you should know the meaning of Fumoffu. If you haven't seen it, then there is no way to explain the tremendous subtleties of this seemingly bizarre expression.

Think of it as a zen koan. You need to understand it for yourself.

According to NewType Magazine, it's the sound that Bonta-kun makes. Fuu-Mo-Fu. Watch ep3. Everything becomes pretty obvious.

When Sagara gets into the Bonta-kun costume and tries to turn on the speakers the entire systems crashes (explained in one of the later episodes) so he has to use Bonta-kun without the speaker system, the effect is however that everytime Sagara says something Bonta-kun says fumo fumoffu etc... That's where they named the series after, as far as I know fumoffu doesn't mean a thing in Japanese ( I actually took out a Japanese dictionary and couldn't find a thing that relates to it)
