Bobobo-bo bo-bobo (This is not a review)

In these dark times of terrorism, and political unrest, Bo-bobo, like Don Quixote before him, harkens us back to a forgotten age, an age of chivalry.

The year is 300x, as the evil hair hunt troop casts a shadow of fear and despair over the land, only one warrior can stand in their way. He is Bo-bobo, a gifted warrior trained in the ancient techniques of the nose hair, his courage shines out like a ray of hope to the oppressed people he valiantly fights to protect.

One of the first things I must say about bo-bobo is that it is an acquired taste. Upon first viewing many people will write it off as another silly anime, but those that stick around will discover another layer to this amazing show. The adventures of Bo-bobo and his friends can be interpreted as an allegory for the struggles of the average man. Every day people find themselves living in a constant state of monotony, and for them the adventures of Bo-bobo shine out like a beacon, a promise for a more interesting, and enlightening existence.

Still think Bo-bobo is a silly cartoon well here is a condensed literary analysis to some of the characters. Bobobo himself is a perfect example of the archetypical hero, one who will protect his ideals and beliefs at all costs. Beauty is presented as a normal person, who is hurtled from a life of mediocrity into a fantastic life of wonder and awe, the Dante to Bobobo's Virgil. Finally Don Patch often provides the impossible solution to the impossible problem, a literary phenomenon known as deus ex machina.

Keep these ideas in mind when you watch the next episode, and you too may reach enlightenment, like me.

Oh you want me to take you down again, fool? Bitter about the fact that you don't even know who Tokoro Tennosuke is? Let me quote you:

Oh so you want to misquote each other now well let me quote from your blog
"Since I am....a stupid bucktooth carrot-loving hippie....I agree with.....fascist government..because....I've been....acting like a sex partner for Bush for past years".

On that awkward note I end this discussion.
