    It is a fine line that separates the fool from the wise man.
    Bakabon's pop may just be the perfect embodiment of this saying. With his signature headband, waistband and long nostril hair, Bakabon's pop prides himself in following his own philosophy and principles. His actions are often spontaneous and border on the absurd. When asked, however, he always has his strange rationale to answer for the consequences. It is up to you to decide whether he is a wise man feigning foolishness or just a phenomenal fool.
    Based on one of Japan's most popular comedy manga crated by a legendary comic artist Fujio Akatsuka, Heisei Tensai Bakabon gives a salute to the absurd by crossing nonsensicality with wisdom with Bakabon's pop and many other odd characters spicing up their daily lives with wildest ideas imaginable!

Spurred by an ambition to become a legendary teacher "GTO"—Great Teacher Onizuka, the 22-year old upstart uses his own experience as a troubled student to open up the hearts of misunderstood and disillusioned teens.
