Both are played entirely for laughs and poke at story conventions by subverting, over-dramatizing, or breaking them. 
report Recommended by Taivus
Both series feature absurd humor. In a way, these series are similar to what one would see on adult swim where the humor is not afraid to be mean-spirited or sometimes be cringey yet still funny. If you're sick of typical anime humor then I recommend both series for a nice change of pace.

Over the top crazy fun. Fitting description to both Pop Team Epic and Panty & Stocking. They also share bright, colorful artstyles, pop culture references and rapid-fire gags. If you liked one, I can't see you disliking the other.

Both series are sketch comedies playing off subverted expectations. Nichijou pokes fun at the everyday; Pop Team Epic gets its laughs from its absurdity.

- chibi girl(s) doing some random things - filled with references to j-franchises (PTE - Pokémon, Totoro, ... and Umaru - One Piece, Hatsune Miku, ...) - could be seen as funny and comedic

Both of them are: - not serious at all - extremely reference-heavy - telling terrible stories on purposes Haiyore! Nyaruko-san is a harem romance comedy, Poputepipikku is completely random and nonsensical.

Meta-humor and absurdity abound in both Gintama and Pop Team Epic. They both make references to other anime, call out their own anime production staff in the middle of the show, and rely heavily on sight-gags and slapstick for the comedy.  
report Recommended by Dewelleric
Both utilize wacky character hijinks, absurd meta-humor and slap-stick comedy as told through varied animation styles. Also, you will leave each episode thinking to yourself, "WTF did I just watch?"

Both are parody shows with lots of comedy. While Pop Team Epic is more skit based and parodies multiple animes, games and other forms of media, Mahou Shoujo Ore has a actual story and parodies the magic girl genre.

-Both are made up of skits -Both have characters that you get to know better with each episode -Both are comedy

Both animes doesn't make any sense and they both share the fact that there isn't a real story, they're just sketches, short but intense stories 
report Recommended by HiddenAzorin
Well, these two are only similar in the fact that you do not know where the anime is going to come from, the absurd turns and the scenes that leave you saying "what?" 
report Recommended by HiddenAzorin
The common factors uniting these two anime: meta-humor, absurdity, gags, the use short skits in lieu af a plot, clever use of shoddy editing and subpar animation for comedic effect.

both anime make you cringe at first but eventually getting used to the feeling,all characters over exaggerate emotions

There is a lot to differentiate Pop Team Epic from Colorful, but at their core each show has the same comedic essence. Explicated better, both these shows are skit comedies that rely on drawing in viewers with their variety of lightning-fast comedic moments. Both shows feel like the kind of hectic Internet humour often found in YouTube videos. 
report Recommended by redac_ted
Both shows offer a questionable world with extremely bizarre characters and actions that make zero sense. If you enjoy the randomness of either show you'll definitely like the other. Both Dokuro and Popuko have violent tendencies.

Both Asobi Asobase and Pop Team Epic are comedies revolving around girls. They're both funny and make you go WTF? on multiple occasions. Asobi Asobase takes place in a school life setting, and is a lot less hardcore than Pop Team Epic. Asobi Asobase fans should watch Pop Team Epic for a level up, and Pop Team Epic fans should watch Asobi Asobase for something a little more lighthearted, but still hilarious.

Poputepipikku is a bit more disjointed than Space Dandy, but they're both totally off the wall and poke fun at numerous anime tropes. There's little to no continuity in either, and each is full of cartoon antics--exactly what animation was meant for! 
report Recommended by peetza
Both are great comedies with strange characters. Both are made out of comedic shorts that have no context and have no real plot.

Between Ai Mai Mi, Pop Team Epic, and Fushigi na Somera-chan, if you're looking for an anime to watch and you have a quality yet questionable humor and can laugh at the most simple and stupid thing, you need to watch these three animes. Each of the humor presented in each anime I've listed here is enough to make you ascend to an entire new existence as you laugh your ass off and question why you're laughing. They're basically the vines that you see that present raw humor but somehow make a lot of sense and are absolutely hilarious; my example being the "Hi, welcome  read more

Both are comedy themed shows with ridiculous characters that constantly make pop culture references.  
report Recommended by machcharge
Two fun, stupid and creative shows, similar in both style and spirit despite being almost 20 years apart from each other. In both, you follow the nonsensical hijinks of a couple of cute and horrendously dangerous girls, while the producers and writers behind everything have one heck of a time in creating the most surreal scenarios and interactions you can imagine. After all, isn't this what anime's really about? Having fun.

Although one is Reddit the anime, and the other is a giant sports themed shitpost, they both have enough absurd comedy and just overall randomness that you could get a kick out of them.
