Soreike!! Bomberman Jetters

Title (Japanese)

それいけ!!ボンバーマンジェッターズ
Soreike!! Bomberman Jetters

Soreike!! Bomberman Jetters (roughly translated as "Let's Go!! Bomberman Jetters") was a gag comic authored by Takeshi Tamai (玉井たけし) and published in adolescent manga magazine Monthly CoroCoro Comic (月刊コロコロコミック) It ran for eight episodes from April 2003 to November 2003, though an exclusive ninth episode was published in the collected edition in January 2004.

Filling the void left by the Bakuretsu!! Bomberman Jetters, Soreike!! focuses on a similar brand of silly continuity-free misadventures starring the cast of Jetters. Its style of comedy is as broad and manic as Tamai's previous Bomberman series, BB-Daman Bakushoden, and is perhaps more crass than before: there's boogers, vomit, comic violence, and - believe it or not - a surprising amount of penis gags! Perhaps most offensive of all, Shirobon and other Bombermen are often drawn with mouths. Yuck!

A collected edition was later sold in Japan and Taiwan with an all-new final episode.
