The Teppen Grand Prix is a competition established out of an appreciation for stand-up comedy. As devoted fans of such performances, Yayoi Sakamoto and her two friends—Yomogi Takahashi and Yuzu Hosono—form the stand-up trio Young Wai-Wai. After qualifying for the final round in the prix, the three go up against other comedic trios, but only one group can emerge victorious.

With participants housed in a famous dorm where many comedians before them have lodged, the contestants' time living at the establishment will give them a chance to prove they have what it takes to make their audience laugh until they cry!

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. ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

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 ...
