Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba-Bakuretsu Bomberman

Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba-Bakuretsu Bomberman (which roughly translates to "B-B-B-B-Blast Bomberman") was a gag comic authored by Dynamic Taro (ダイナミック太郎) and published in monthly children's gaming magazine Dengeki Nintendo DS (デンゲキニンテンドーDS) (which you can read more about at Scans & Bits). It ran from September 2008 to August 2011, totalling 36 episodes.

Elementary school student Dan Ohno (大野 弾) shares his home with the naive but well-meaning Shirobon, who's constantly challenged to bomber duels by his sometimes-friend-sometimes-nemesis Kurobon. The trio get into shenanigans ranging from the mundane - Dan being stricken by a cold - to the far-out, like Hige Hige Bandit #16 revealing some nefarious scheme. Pretty Bomber frequently shows up to keep an eye on the two Bombermen, and resolving the situation if need be.

Episodes are referred to as "Bombs" and are standalone skits with no overarching story, it's all played strictly for laughs.
