    Oh, Bobobo. xD

    I miss your show.

    By the way, what’s the complete list of the shows Bobobo parodied, outside of Fist of the North Star?

    • It’s safe to say that all the iconic Shonen ones are. Especially Dragon Ball and Yu-Gi-Oh! They were sometimes not even a parody, the very same characters were cameo’d in the manga during confrontations, too!

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        this better be one of Bobobo’s abilities

        • JMTHEFOX

          This made my day…

        • Vash bane

          Bobobo had a manga lol back then I only knew of the show (I only got into manga last year) never finished it tho :/ but I remember it being random but yugi? XD I need to re watch it

    • Mugiwara

      I heard tha was one time that Yugi jumped out of his hair! :O

    • No Items Ever

      Most of the staple SJ series that came out at the time. They’ve also done some for video games as well, I remember Shintesu (2nd series) did a parody of Phoenix Wright pretty well.

  • Randgriz

    Can this game get anymore amazing? Seriously, its a whos’who for manga lovers all over.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    for next, please Daimon Masaru

    • Renaldi Saputra

      seems ppl don’t know who is Daimon Masaru-sama

      • JonathanisPrimus

        They’re downvoting you because he’s not from a WSJ series.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          so, VJump series couldn’t be in J-Stars?

          • Razvaille

            Yes! Like Master Chief in Super Smash Bros or
            whatever lol

          • Renaldi Saputra

            so, to be exact, these Jump characters are from Jump manga, characters from anime only couldn’t be on there?

          • Mugiwara

            Yup. Weekly Shonen Jump, not even Jump Square are getting characters in this. (Allen is a case apart.)

          • Renaldi Saputra

            that’s too bad
            Daimon Masaru from digimon series will be good to compete, though

          • JonathanisPrimus

            As of right now, all of the series represented were serialized in WSJ.

  • All that’s left is Yu-Gi-Oh!, Shaman King and Houshin Engi to get playable reps, and this game is as good as ready! Maybe more support characters after them!

    • Kamakuma

      This so much! XD I’ve been waiting for this announcement for the longest. ^-^ Now all I need is a Yoh and a angry Anna. :’3

    • anthony apduhan

      And Eyeshield 21’s Youichi Hiruma YA-HA!

    • TempestTwin

      No way, without Kakashi, Hiei and Killua this game will never be ready

      • Kakashi and Sakura are confirmed in the game, you know. As NPCs.

        • TempestTwin

          Still disappointing. The people who disliked my comment obviously never played Jump ultimate stars, they don’t know how awesome the character roster was for that. I wish they made it similar, because as of right now to me the character roster is pretty pathetic in comparison to JUS.

          To the people who disliked my comment:
          I’m sorry I appreciate other characters in anime series and not just the main protagonists, you simple minded luffy/Naruto/goku fanboys.

          • Daniel Nguyen

            The gameplay mechanics in J-Stars Victory VS are completely different from JUS, and for christ’s sake, JUS used 2-D sprites and adding characters to the roster for J-Stars must have been time-consuming for the developers, and this is what the Japanese fans wanted.

          • TempestTwin

            They added Neuro and Allen as support characters. What a joke. Don’t talk to me about gameplay mechanics as it has absolutely nothing to do with adding playable characters into the game. Jump Ultimate stars in my eyes was so great because of the character selection, and not because of the gameplay mechanics.

          • Kaitsu

            You do realize you named 3 characters that have as much of a large fanbase if not, bigger than the main characters, right? I’m sorry that Sasuke and Madara are somehow main protagonists now along with Younger Toguro.

            Also, I’d have to say no more Naruto characters. We have enough of that. Hiei, sure, but I wouldn’t mind Kurama. Killua, another sure. I’m only saying “sure” because there’s only 1-2 characters from those series so far. There’s 3 for Naruto that are playable.

          • TempestTwin

            What about Neuro and Allen? Why are they not getting any light on the matter hmm? At the rate the character roster is going I’m not even going to bother buying the game, because playing as luffy/goku/naruto/ichigo does not interest me at all. So far the only characters that interest me are Yusuke, Frieza, Sasuke, Gon and kenshin.

          • Daniel Nguyen

            This game is for Jump protagonists, not willy-nilly secondary characters, and Dr. Slump is more iconic than D.Gray-man.

    • BalmungX

      I’m glad that i’m seeing Houshin Engi on peoples list,it’s a good series

    • hazelnut1112

      You forgot Kinnikuman, that is also left to be announced.

  • Ariobimo Wicaksono

    Finally! I’ve been waiting for a long time for this. The afro Hajikelist is here! Now we need the starfish-haired pharaoh so both of them can do their combination attack.

  • TempestTwin

    I really hope Don Patch will be a playable character.

  • ThatGuy3190_7

    i’d like to see Nura from Nurarihyon no Mago if he hasn’t been announced already.

  • Yoh Asakura from Shaman King, for Christ’s sake!

    The game will not be -that- perfect without him, y’know.

    • zferolie

      Yes, he needs to be in.

    • MrRobbyM

      Yoh and Yugi tbh.

    • OathkeeperSoraXIII

      This, 100x this. I want Yoh to be in so badly

    • Yoh and zeke as his rival/ antagonist

  • cyberkinghardy

    Why are they keep adding ugly characters geez..

    • This is Shonen Jump not CLAMP.

    • wez

      Bobobo is the most beautiful man in the world

    • Mugiwara

      Why you keep reading mainstream mangas with “spetacular” art?

      • Cazar

        >not mainstream


        • Mugiwara

          Who said WSJ wasn’t mainstream?! :P
          And I was just angry, how can someone call Bobobo-Bo Bo-BoBo ugly?!
          Maybe I should edit the “mainstream” part. -.-

    • No Items Ever

      Bobobo is gorgeous.

      Also he’s a classic character and I think a wide majority of people are happy to have him in.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      That’s subjective.

      This isn’t a fashion show (at least not until Dio and Kars gets announced)

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      it’s not like you need to play as them anyway

  • Fidelis

    Well it kind of bothers me that Bobobo’s been confirmed before Yoh….
    Does every represented series get a rival and villain?
    I’m gonna guess that Softon’ll be the “rival” character.

    Ah well, as much as I want Horohoro, we all know Ren will fill that spot if Shaman King is represented.

    Imagine Sagara Sanosuke and Horohoro in one game..!

    • Remlot

      I don’t think every series will since Gintama hasn’t gotten a rival and neither has Kochikame

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I hope that Hentai Kamen makes it in the game!

  • zferolie

    About time Bo-bobo was announced. He needed to be in this game

    I’m surprised Yugi hasn’t been announced yet… CARD GAMES IN YOUR FIGHTING GAME!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      Daimon Masaru too


      YuGiOh is owned by Konami so its impossible to add him in this game.

      • [citation needed]

      • AkuLord3

        Yeah but Konami didn’t make the series and it started in Jump…i think they can when he’s been in the Jump games before.

  • ThatGuy3190_7

    Service Man as a support character please?

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    Bobobo vs Kenshiro… Hmmm…

  • MrRobbyM

    Bobobo just sold me

  • TheGameTagerZ

    Now all I need is Don Patch as a separate character and Yugi! Also here’s the English translated PV5. We’re going to start translating the game after release.


    • JAY

      Is there a site were your gonna have the translations at?
      Possibly a faq so i can enjoy the game myself instead of just watching youtube vids.
      This is the first game im heavily considering importing, but im gonna wait it out to see if a ENG faq comes out so i can enjoy it fully.

    • BalmungX

      I think Don-patch is part o Bobobo moveset in the scan above arale head you can see him along with Bobobo

      • TheGameTagerZ

        Yeah I know. still hoping to him to be in. Unless they simply decide to keep just Bobobo they usually have 2 per series.

        • BalmungX

          Yeah,I’m hoping for kumagawa to be turned playable,so I know the feeling

      • Don Patch does the same inversely. This series is just like that.


      Why the hell is Akainu smiling? o.o

      Anyway, glad to see Bobobo and Arale coming to this game… Sucks that Beauty and Don Patch aren’t coming…

    • 愛憎

      Hahaha. I love that 「Omae wa mō shindei..ru?」 “You’re already… dead?”

  • About time for Arale!

  • British_Otaku

    Wanted Arale more than Vegeta, so they get all my money. Nice move having Saiki even if it is new and hasn’t caught on like AssClass yet (which is outselling rivals like Toriko or Gintama >_>), I liked what I read of it. Bobobo is cool too.

  • No Items Ever

    So excited to have Bobobo in the game. Now we just need Yugi Muto, Kazuki Muto from Buso Renkin, or Train Heartnet from Black Cat and it’ll be perfect. :D

  • D-Rev

    Has Kinnikuman been confirmed? I gosh darn hope so.

  • Muffum




  • pokeslob

    ultimate nerdgasm> Pharaoh Yugi with horse and sword…. this will never happen (although Durarara, Oreimo, and Sword Art are all in the same fighting game so really at this point anything is possible in the world)

    realistic needs here:
    -Yoh Asakura
    -Mutou Yugi (light/dark)
    -Alen Walker (not as support)
    -Tsurugi Momotaro
    -Hikaru Shindou

    I think I’d be cool after that

    • Mugiwara

      “although Durarara, Oreimo, and Sword Art are all in the same fighting game” Because they all are from Dengeki Bunko that is like a Jump for Light Novel. :)

  • dahuuuundge

    Can’t have Bobobo without Super Patch or Jelly Jiggler. Super Patch was so good in JUS.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      I can’t see Jelly as anything other than support though. Hoping for Don Patch still.

  • hazelnut1112

    HELL YEAH!!!!!
    Come on Kinnikuman, it would be a crime not to have him there. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE!!!!

    A little bummed Don Patch is included in Bobobo’s moveset instead of being playable..

    • Just Tim

      Even Brocken Jr? *nudge nudge wink wink*

    • Lobsterman

      Kinnikuman is an absolute must. How can this game truly celebrate 45 years of Jump without one of its oldest and still loved icons? (Who recently hit its 35th anniversary)

      Honestly I think the series also deserves a playable villain, like Akuma Shogun. (Though just Suguru would be appreciated)

      I hope he gets announced next, but I must admit I’m starting to lose hope.

  • The 15ᵗʰ Angel

    I got BoBoBo now this game is now perfect for me. my wishlist is complete they already took my money I call this my pre-order bonus thank you Bandai and thank you Jump!

  • Firion Hope

    Oh man bobobo, the mans hilarious

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    Might as well put in Space Dandy while they’re at it.

    • Detrimont

      not in Jump…. etc etc etc

      • Skeptika Crediblus

        Well, no, but still..

  • Eder García

    no Kuwabara. no buy.

  • Pinwheel

    I think people need to prepare, given these announcements are coming close to an end, that there’s a pretty good chance their character they want in may not pop up at this point.

  • Sakurazaki

    Aww yiss.

    The Fist of the Nose Hair will not be stopped.

  • TheGameTagerZ

    Scan translated :)


  • RunningWild1984


  • ZidanReign

    omg Bobobo, the Kenshiro Parody is here.

    Kenshiro vs Bobobo, Fist of the North Star vs Fist of the Nose Hair.
