Hi guys, I was wondering, I read the Bo-bobo manga at onemanga and the story was like the anime's story.
Now shonen jump released the first two volumes, which I bought, only to discover that the story wasn't like the onemanga version or the anime at all!
Does anyone know what's going on here and why they're so different?

Because their localization people suck. Probably. I mean i've only seen subbed and dubbed versions of bo bo bo and they were VASTLY different. The series is so bizzare and surreal that it's hard for things to come across in either direction.

True, after a lot of wikipedia and viz media surfing (took me more than 3 hours!) I found that the volume that shonen jump released as volume 1 was volume 11 in japan,
and basically they translate the series from there on. The volume that shonen advanced released was volume 9 in Japan, and I 've got absolutely no idea why they didn't do the rest.

They probably didn't because the story actually makes no sense. In my opinion, it's one of the worse shounen manga. It has a good idea which should work with a gag manga but it's far too erratic. I admit, I am a manga snob, a REALLY bad one, but this is one of three series' that I cannot actually read (the other two being Tokyo Mew-Mew and TsUbAsSa). It might get better later on, but it's hard to get to that point.

My brother reads this manga in Shonen Jump .
I enjoy a kick out of it, too, especially when I'm sad .
It cheers me right up, laughter and comedy are awesome .
And the Onemanga versions of some comics are so badly different, I buy the real manga at the grocery store on the book shelf .
I bought some for my brother one Christmas .
=D

    I'm fortunate to have had some managers over the years who I've straight up told to go fuck themselves, and not get in trouble for it. Help that I've been on the receiving end of that as well lmao

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I luckily haven't had a boss in over 20 years, (independent contractor) but the people I do work for, it's pretty much like they my bosses, and yea some can be assholes. But there has been many jobs I've walked off and mailed they're checks back to them.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Bosses should yell at workers for mess ups they just need to know the difference in abuse and punishment
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I don't abuse or curse at my employess, I feel like waving the gun around gets the point across just fine.

    That's how all of my last managers have been in this job and my last one. Last time I had a manager where I was being micromanaged to hell and back was over a decade ago when I worked retail

    At my last job I (as an individual contributor, not a manager or supervisor or anything) used to be the one to tell my manager when I was traveling for work "hey I'm gonna be out of office between x and y dates, I got something on the other side of the country I'm gonna go work on"
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Which was not the normal dynamic for that role lmao
