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

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.

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!

- 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 are amazing feats of the anime industry, telling touching stories about the meaning of family and growing up. Truly both are masterpieces.

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.

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.

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?"

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.

Through both of this shows, you are going to ask yourself questiones you never thought of. You will question the decisions of every choice you made during your lifespan. Both have good drama with a genius artstyle and both are very philosophical.

Both shows presents dark, sometimes """offensive""" humor in a minimalistic, but memorable art style. Also, both shows have TONS of references to pop culture.

Both anime contain philosophical and existential themes that will leave you questioning the meaning of your very life

Both have influenced anime to what they are today, and treat with pretty serious themes, you must have you're head cool to apreciate the miracle of this anime.

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 played entirely for laughs and poke at story conventions by subverting, over-dramatizing, or breaking them.
