Hair-raising fun

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.

Humans Are La La La

In this shocking volume of Bo-bobo, prepare yourself for twists and turns you've never seen before Poppa Rocks tries to nudge Beauty aside and take over the role of heroine Torpedo Girl loses her cool and goes ballistic over Softon Beauty expresses vexation at the absurdity of it all Bo-bobo manages to come out of his own hair.
