Bo-bobo, master of Fist of the Nose Hair, uses the prehensile hairs of his shnoz to most lethal ends. Follow the nonsensical adventures of Bo-bobo and his sentient sidekick snacks as they lead their "hair"-larious rebellion against the Empire. Yoshio Sawai pushes the bounds of satire and the medium of manga itself with Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. Irreverent, silly and unpredictable—Bo-bobo is pure comic genius.

In the year 300X, the cruel Emperor Tsuru Tsururina has mandated the hunting of all hair in the Maruhage Empire. But a single man rises to the occasion and takes a stand against this violation of human hair rights. Bo-bobo, master of Fist of the Nose Hair, uses the prehensile hairs of his shnoz to most lethal ends. Follow the nonsensical adventures of Bo-bobo and his sentient sidekick snacks as they lead their "hair"-larious rebellion against the Empire. Bobobo-bo-bo-bobo's pal Gasser has been kidnapped by the evil Lord Giga. Bo-bobo and his pals will have to tear through some seriously hardcore bad guys to free their homey—hopefully they can stay focused enough to remember to rescue him! Yoshio Sawai pushes the bounds of satire and the manga medium itself with Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. Irreverent, silly and unpredictable, it's pure comic genius.
