The hero of the story is Bolt Crank, a BadAss dude who has the ability to eat anything, then re-create it, whole and functional, from his arm. This is, more often than not, a [[{{BFG}} ridiculously large gun of some kind]]. He typically travels the world, righting wrongs and spending a surprising amount of time helping young couples get together despite enormous odds. An anime adaptation was made in 1997, animated by Creator/StudioDEEN and directed by Creator/KoichiMashimo.
