Hunter Gunboy Herbie (ハンターガンボーイハービー Hantā Ganbōi Hābī?) is a Japanese children's manga and anime series created by Seiho Akiyama.

The series was quite popular in Japan as well as in numerous other countries around the world, which led to many inspirations.

Premise[]

The story follows a 9-year-old Lambian boy named Herbie Weisheit, son of the legendary treasure hunter Asgard Weisheit, who came into modern-day Earth as a 4th grader at a local elementary school in Toichicho City (or Toshi Town in the West), Minato-ku, Tokyo, as an official student where no one has gone before.

To do it, he has to face many everyday survival skills and issues throughout his life with his smart, goofy, generous, and hard-working best friend and sidekick Kenta Tomizawa, his super-peppy, cheerful, and happy-go-lucky friend Akemi Nishikawa, and his part-yet-loyal talking pet rabbit Rabby, to come along on their gunslinging, blasting adventures throughout the entire series and onward.

Characters[]

Main[]

  • Herbie Weisheit (CV: Urara Takano)
    • The main character of the anime, he is mainly a normal, quiet and goofy 9-year-old boy whose dream to become a treasure hunter and a junior archaeologist with stealthy moves and his .38 Special gun with "laser-powered" bullets instead of real cartridge bullets called Fireblazer. However, he came into a modern-day world (which is set in Toichicho City (or Toshi Town in the West), Minato-ku, Tokyo) as a 4th-grade elementary school student, alongside Leon Abbott and Rabby to save both the Earth and Lambia from the wrong hands of certain events. He uses his gun to blast through enemies and villains when mischief goes around throughout both worlds at the same time. He has a sweet tooth for American-style hamburgers (the ones that he liked during the first episode and throughout the entire series as well).
  • Kenta Tomizawa (CV: Mayumi Tanaka)

    • Herbie's caregiver, assistant and archaeologist. He used to take care of Herbie as his babysitter since Herbie's parents are away due to his father going on long journeys and his mother as a bartender. Since he was Herbie's caregiver on Earth, he usually goes on teaching him new things that Herbie tries to learn about as an archaeologist on both Lambia and Earth. However, he was later married to Jenna Law in Season 3.
  • Jennifer "Jenna" Law (CV: Yumi Toma)
    • A huntress, part-time negotiator and Herbie's second caregiver who is smart, serious, stoic, strict and sometimes bossy and grumpy. Due to her trainer's death, she moved to Lambia before she went to Earth along with Herbie and Leon (her love interest), and thus protecting Herbie and company from danger. She was also into cigarettes, as long as she doesn't smoke in her mouth. In Season 3, she was married to Leon Abbott on her first honeymoon.

Villains/Antagonists[]

  • Lord Gabriel Omegatopo (CV: Akio Otsuka)
    • The main antagonist of the series. He is the conqueror of Titan and used to be an enemy of Asgard Weisheit. He was mainly foiled by Herbie Weisheit and his no-good friends for not letting him take over both worlds and turn Lambia into his own world and Earth into an emerging planet. He also has a bad childhood, but he also has an ability to fly, although he is half a bat and has very strong bat wings.
  • Metal Silk (CV: Mami Koyama)
    • Omegatopo's scatter-brained android assistant who plans on focusing on his plans to take over both Lambia and Earth without decency. Although, she does follow Omegatopo sometimes but can be sexually attracted to herself as well, much to his jealousy.

  • Jack Fiddler (CV: Nobuyuki Hiyama)

She often likes to go to classes, be responsible and do academics without making any mistakes or distractions. However, she gets anxious and grumpy sometimes when people make fun of her or things that don't go her way, her autism could lead her to meltdowns and violent temper-tantrums and forces everybody in Toichicho City to listen to her bad behaviour instead of forcing her to be nice, which could lead to her unnecessary and misleading thoughts that will become true and probably destroy Toichicho City and the rest of the world as well. Apparently, she can be friendly to her classmates at Class 4-B with her friends (especially Kenta, Akemi and Rumiko).
  • Gokiya (CV: Toru Furuya)
    • A crazed Yamato cockroach who wasn't killed but made him smarter by a radioactive boric acid dango that Jack put in instead, which makes the cockroaches and the entire cockroach nest inside the Tomizawa house free to live their lives as their own.

  • Gokiryu and Gokikyo (CV: Shigeru Chiba and Kenichi Ogata)
    • Gokiya's minions, they're very dumb and are aggressive over things. Gokiryu is a dimwitted and stupid one and Gokikyo is the sour-tempered and selfish one.

Trivia[]

  • When it comes to children's manga and anime, the blood, the gore, coarse language (which has been replaced by censor bleeps), some nudity (throughout the world excluding Japan for their sex organs/genitals and female nipples (including female breasts were leaven alone too as in hot spring bath scenes) have been taken out in the original dub), while the international dubs have certain changes, alcohol and sexual themes were taken out, even the bullets the main characters use were replaced by "spark bullets" to make it look safer for older children, they use it to store in the guns and shoot evil villains and monsters around to make it more like a "paintball" than a real bullet so no one could get shot dead by one of those.
  • The series is known in nationwide Germany as Hunter Gunboy Herbie: Das Verfolgungskind, which means the German adaptation of the series is meant to avoid controversy and harm for young people by the BPjS/BPjM (a.k.a. the Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons).
