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.

This "Volume 1" is actually Volume 11. I loved the anime when it was Toonami years ago and recently I started buying up old series I had liked. When I opened up "Volume 1", I was a little confused. The series really starts off with just Bobobo and Beauty and they meet everyone as the story progresses. How is it that they're all together already and facing one of the various sub antagonist? Don't waste your money and do the research on where to buy the real Volume 1.
