More hilarious adventures with the star of the hit late-night Adult Swim series. Shinchan is unlike any five-year-old you've ever encountered. He's rude, he's crude, and adults tremble whenever he's around. He bares all, plays with his food and finds any number of other ways to embarrass his parents. But that's not Shinchan's view as evidenced in "I'm Shinchan, A Really, Really Good Boy!" Then he spreads the joy with teachers and fellow students in "I'm The Famous Kid at Kindergarten." Being foul has never been so fun. CMX brings you the original Japanese manga in all of its uncensored glory.

Known as the Bart Simpson of Japan, Crayon Shinchan is a five-year-old nightmare who delights in tormenting his parents and everyone around him with his brutally honest observations and devastating antics. He's incredibly mischievous, and causes his mother nothing but grief. As with the best popular satire, Shinchan also functions as an antidote to the more uptight aspects of (here, Japanese) culture. In this eighth volume, Usui, whose art is utterly minimal at best, may be running out of inspiration for Shinchan's gags, and takes lengthy excursions with other characters, such as the leader of the Red Scorpion Gang, a teenage girl who pretends to eschew love. Of course, her crush on a boy who walks by her one day proves this to be false and leads to endless embarrassment. The final tale, "Buri Buri Kingdom's Hidden Treasure," is even more of a departure, a lengthy story that is Usui's version of a Tintin-type adventure, as a vacation trip goes wrong and Shinchan is mistaken for a lost prince. Usui is much better at one-liners than sustained narrative, and his jokes—regardless of which character's involved—are scatological and outrageous.
