Poputepipikku turns absurdist comedy up to eleven with its pop culture references and surreal hilarity. With two bonafide high school girl protagonists—the short and exceptionally quick to anger Popuko, and the tall and unshakably calm Pipimi—they throw genres against the wall and don't wait to see what sticks. Parody is interlaced with drama, action, crudeness, and the show's overarching goal—to become a real anime.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Poputepipikku is based on bkub Ookawa's 4-koma manga series of the same title. Each episode consists of a 12-minute segment repeated twice. The repeated segment contains a different voiceover by another voice actor with variations on the skits.

The Anime Gods have descended into 2018...and gave us the most kuso (or shitty) anime in the history of anime, and you either love this series to death OR just don't care about it, because #dankmemes!!!

That's what Pop Team Epic is, a crappy manga turned into an anime...that actually showcases the talents of multiple people from their simple jobs of designing and drawing art for comic-sized works.

So...the first balldrop is Hoshiiro Girldrop, who would have thought. For those who have watched the 1st episode, this comes as no surprise by the time the segment ended with Popuko appearing as though they have hijacked the whole read more

Bad Shitposting is STILL Bad Shitposting

Just being "LUL so RANDOM BRUH" isn't good random comedy, PTE was an assault on the senses that made me feel like I had autism, and not even in a meme way... b-but tumblr likes it so it MUST be good right!? This show was physically and mentally draining to experience....

Saw an idiot try to compare this to robot chicken, and I'm like WTF are you talking about? RC at least has consistency in its style, stop motion, and format... Pop Team Epic is like giving some seizure victims one day to shit out bad pop-culture references and gather them read more

We have a new candidate for most polarizing anime of all time. There appears to be no middle ground on this one. You will either absolutely love this or your reaction will be that there is a special place in hell for whoever dreamed this one up.

I have devised a fool-proof test for whether you'll like this show or not. The results are based on your reaction to this joke:

Question: Why did Salvador Dali's chicken cross the road? Answer: A fish, m*therf**ker.

If you found that joke to be funny, you'll enjoy this show and I am happy for you. For everyone else I'm reminded of read more

Before anyone can answer the question: "What is Pop Team Epic?" I believe a more pressing question is more like "Why in hell am I writing a serious review of this shit post?"

Actually, I have an answer to that question, unlike the first one. First of all, I love my absurd and nonsensical Chinese cartoons; I have a special place in my heart (and in some case my Top 10) for shows like Nichijou, Daily Lives of HS Boys, and of course, Gintama. That said, I don't really think Pop Team Epic can really stand up to those shows when we are talking about how read more
