Jibaku-kun: Twelve World Story (ジバクくん Jibaku-kun?) is a 1999 manga and anime series by Ami Shibata. The anime series ran for a single season of 26 episodes, due to it receiving poor ratings in Japan[citation needed], but was nevertheless broadcast in the United States and a few countries of Latin America. In some markets the series is known as Bucky: The Incredible Kid, Bucky: Searching for world 0 or simply Bucky. In the early 2000's, the series was broadcast in Brazil where it became a huge and unexplainable success if compared to the reception it received in other countries.

Story[edit]

This story happens at a place called "Parallel Planet" located above the sky and down the sea. This planet is divided in twelve worlds, in such way that if it seems like a clock. In the center of this clock, exists the "Needle tower", a place where the time doesn't pass, The World Zero. In each "world" there is a Great Child (or G.C.), that is something like the guardian of that world. The Great Child is always accompanied by a spirit, which is an explosive, spherical side-kick that helps defeat the Monster Troublemakers.

Bucky, the protagonist of the story, is a normal boy that lives in the first world. He lives with a single and "humble" ambition: to dominate the world (as in, whole planet). He is very confident and would certainly die for his dream. One day he meets with Spark, the Great Child of Primas (World One). Spark is known as the strongest Great Child of all of the worlds, and he is looking for a successor. After finding Bucky and talking a little with him, Spark, without apparent reason, chooses Bucky as his successor. Thus Bucky becomes a Great Child and acquires Jibaku, the spirit of the first world. From that point onwards, Bucky travels through the twelve worlds to accomplish his dream of dominating the world, with his friends (or as he calls them, slaves) that he meets in the world.
