Recommendation: A truly great comedy, but western audiences and casual anime fans may have difficulty getting into it.

Manzai comedy can be hard to appreciate, especially for western audiences. That shouldn't scare you away from Teppen, but you'll want to be aware that you'll need to put in more work than usual to appreciate it. In all honesty, the manzai scenes are consistently the weakest parts of the series, but fortunately there aren't that many of them. This is more of a manzai-flavored CGDCT comedy series about the wacky daily lives of the 5 comedy trios staying in a dorm together than a show "about" manzai. ...

Girls, Bravo.

I want to start off by saying that I really, really want to like Teppen. Studio Drive has created a colourful, well animated show with expressive and likeable characters and the voice actors do a killer job keeping the flow of the conversation up throughout all the episodes I’ve watched. It’s an impressive production with very little empty or awkward space to throw off the pacing, just like an actual group comedy skit performance.

However, you’d think an anime about cute girls training to becoming professional comedians would be a bit… funnier?
I know that good comedy is different depending on what you find ...

Teppen is one of my favourites in this season. The wackiness, the unreasonable boke, and fast pacing comedy is what I love in this. Tbh, this anime is the only comedy anime that cracks me up in this season. The approach is similar to Kill la Kill, i.e., over the top and fast-paced. Absurdness upon absurdness come like a barrage of machine-guns.

Its only weakness is in the last episode, where some seriousness is present. To most people, the comedy is unfunny because it has layers. You need to know many japanese trivias to really grasp the meanings. But to me, comedy with more than 1 ...

You know, I was a bit worried when I saw that Bushiroad was attached to this project, this being an adaptation of their manga in their magazine, my biggest fear is that, in the post-Milky Holmes era, their work has always stuck to the safe side and never takes any risks; anything even remotely interesting, Revue Starlight for instance, always ends up being restricted or constrained by the invisible hand of the committee, snuffing out any creative vision by the creative staff attached to it. With Teppen, my fears were thankfully unwarranted, as it’s single handedly Bushiroad’s wackiest and funniest show since Milky Holmes (funny ...

I honestly really enjoyed Teppen. At first, I was afraid it would be about a "group of girls doing comedy and competing against each other", but it turned out to be way better. Why did I decide to give it a 9? Because it made me laugh (or at least smile) too many times. I do agree not all of the jokes were funny, but if you're into random screams, quick weirdly escalated situations and situational comedy, then you'll definitely enjoy this show. This is not even about manzai - the manzai scenes in this anime are very rare, usually only for a few seconds ...

Here I am, questioning to myself again: yet another manzai comedy? And after the blandness that is Maesetsu! that only really speaks to the native Japanese (which everyone else will not understand), is Teppen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (And yes, that is 15 exclamation marks, the most after Keijo with 8) gonna be any different? In a hopeful way, I wish I do, because of all the manzai comedy that has been seen, Teppen is easily the best out of the lot that I remember, though not without its issues.

We all understand comedy in all sorts of various ways. But when if it's one that's ingrained only to a ...

"My name is Sakamoto Yayoi! I love comedy!" Me too, Sakamoto. Me too. Too bad this is one of the most unfunniest shows I've watched.

It's sad, really. Characters are vibrant, and they have great design. They pop out, and not in a super cliche'd way for the amount of characters and time spent on them. Voice acting in the manzai isn't half assed, and the animation is actually pretty good.The OP is good. The visuals are a great pair to the manzai, and so are the facial expressions, and I think that's one of the most important things when animating comedy. It's not just people ...

Even despite how Japanese-centered the comedy is, even if you can understand most of the jokes and gags, the fact of the matter is that Teppen !x15 is simply not that funny. It has funny moments, and the characters are slightly unique, but the jokes in this anime are not what you'd expect from "professional" comedians even though we're expected to believe they're the best of the best and the audience is supposedly laughing along with you as the story plays out. There were a few good gags and jokes, sure, of course there were, but any semi-decent slice of life has some comedy bits ...
