"Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo" is a TV show that came from the Japanese manga series of the same name. Directed by Hiroki Shibata, the show ran for 76 episodes over a period of two years. The show starts in the year 3001. The entire world has been taken over by the Maruhage Empire and their ruler Bald the 4th. Bald the 4th has created a hair hunting troop that goes around and captures the hair of innocent civilians. A man by the name of Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo decides to take a stand and fight against the empire. Bo-bobo fights against the Hair Hunt Troop with his technique known as Fist of the Nose Hair. His team consists of a teenaged girl named Beauty, a teen boy by the name of Gasser, Don Patch, as well as other members. The show, which is a comedy, uses a style of humor seen commonly in Japan.
"Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo" is influenced from a Japanese style of humor called Manzai. Manzai humor consists of subjects like wordplay, breaking the fourth wall, visual gags, pop-culture references. The show's comedy is driven by a bizarre and sometimes insane nature. Despite the team fighting against evil forces, none of the characters seem to take their job too seriously. The heroic characters draw their power from spontaneity with a unique style to create attacks that parody either who they are fighting or people that don't have anything to do with what's currently happening. The Manzai style humor comes into play with more serious characters, who break the fourth wall to make comments to the viewer about the situation.
