It's about time we had a thread to discuss the works- and adaptations of the works- of Fujio Akatsuka!

As many of you should already know, I'm a huge fan of Osomatsu-san, the sequel to Akatsuka's Osomatsu-kun, but I'm also hooked on the newest Bakabon anime. I'd also like to check out Himitsu no Akko-chan, especially since there's a new web manga for it.

Here's the official Akatsuka site: http://www.koredeiinoda.net/
Here's the English Fujio Productions site: http://www.fujio-pro.co.jp/english/

The new one would be nice to know about, but the older ones sound interesting too.
Here's what you need to know about the old Bakabon shows:

The first one, simply Tensai Bakabon, debuted in 1971, and is widely considered the least enjoyable of the lot - it pretty much bowdlerized the screwball humor of the original manga, and only lasted 40 episodes.

The one that came after that in 1975, Ganso Tensai Bakabon (that is, "Original" Tensai Bakabon - guess why they called it that), was much more faithful to the manga in spirit and is considered the definitive incarnation of Bakabon. Both those series were produced by TMS.

Studio Pierrot produced two series in the 90s, Heisei Tensai Bakabon and Rerere no Tensai Bakabon. I don't know much about those, but they followed in what Ganso Tensai Bakabon did.

Now we've got the new one, which I know little about, but it's on Crunchyroll.

Glad to see interest in Fujio Akatsuka is on the rise. Someone I know talked about the earlier shows in several blog posts!
OSOMATSU-KUN

TENSAI BAKABON
TENSAI BAKABON (another article)

One thing about Akatsuka's work that is pretty noticeable is how often the focus of the show shifts from the main character immediately to another character in the show, such as in Tensai Bakabon being about the father and not the son the show is named for.

Speaking of the manga, you can buy a bilingual Japanese-English version of Bakabon on JP Amazon.

So who are your favorite Akatsuka characters? My favorite Osomatsu-san character is Choromatsu, and my favorite Bakabon characters are the Cop with the Connected Eyeballs and Eel-Dog.
