She has since tried to get her friends to read it but alas....they don't get the humor either. Nevertheless this Series was well worth it because it's a Manga that keeps on giving and has provided my daughter hours of "stewing'.
Buy it. Force your friends to read it with you. Make funny voices for all the characters. They will thank you as mine did.
The TV show on cartoon network appears to be the prequel to this manga so you might want to watch a few episodes to bring you up to speed. Although it's not entirely nessessary for you to watch the show first, (the whole story is crazy anyway.)
Anyway, not everyone will love the nonsenceical comedy of Bo-bobo, but personally I love it! It parodies several other anime & manga stories/charecters! It's especially funny to watch Bo-bobo standing on the roof a train behind a cardboard cut out of the cast of Dragon ball z, or watching Yugi pop out of Bo-bobo's afro and summon slifer the sky dragon! But that's not all! It also parodies several different video games, the Power Rangers, and even Despret Housewives! It's all laugh out loud funny!
This manga is also very thick, and provides hours of laughs!
If you enjoy funny manga or just like to watch parodies of your favorite manga and anime, you'll love Bobobo-bo bo-bobo!
I dont know when they plan on releasing the next volume, but I sure hope that it's soon!
FYI: Regardless of what other people may say, I can assure you that Softon's head is not made of waste. That was only a joke that was printed in the manga because of the way his head is shaped. I'm surprised that so many of the other readers took the joke so seriously... Anyway, Softon's head is really made of ice cream.
I also recommend: Sgt. Frog, book 1.
(The Japanese BoBoBo manga has tons of issues, however us westerners only got 6 issues. The first five are in order and there is an un-numbered issue also known as Bobobo One Shot. This manga has no number on the cover and is often mistaken for the first issue.)
This insane and irreverent as usual manga is hilaurious, and insane. Seriously, its crazy. The illustrations are amazing, and it my opinion number 5 is one the funniest of all the Bobobo issues.
If you're friends think you have a rather off beat sense of humor, you may just be in a rare group of folks who like Bobobo.
