An official Twitter for bkub Ookawa's Poputepipikku (Pop Team Epic) has opened and announced that it will get TV anime adaptation. Animated by Kamikaze Douga and produced by King Records, it is slated for Fall 2017.

Poputepipikku began its serialization on web manga website Manga Life Win in August 2014. The first part ended in November 2015 and second part started in February 2016. The physical compiled volume was released on December 2015. It's an unprecedented gag 4-koma manga that centers around two girls called Popuko and Pipimi and uses lots of news topics in surreal way.

It was previously announced on April 1 that bkub Ookawa's fake work Hoshiiro Girldrop would get an anime adaptation as an April Fool's day joke with the PV, therefore the link for the official website and Twitter relates to "Hoshiiro Anime."

IF this isn't a joke, this is pretty dope.
TEN COMMANDMENTS:
1) If Evangelion and Psycho-Pass are his only 10s, he probably also worships Tool and smells like cheesy puffs 2) Freudian psychosis =/= good writing 3) Moe blob art style is only ok in pure slice-of-life comedy 4) It's ok to enjoy shounen. Having fun is allowed 5) It is not ok to enjoy isekai (jk, it is, I just fucking hate it) 6) Creator breakdown =/= good writing 7) A story does not have to be wrapped up with a bow. Life is messy, why would a good story need to be tidy? 8) InuYasha is proto-Twilight 9) Ecchi CAN be good, but is almost always an abomination 10) If God is real, They allowed Super Kid to happen, so fuck Them

Hopefully this is just an April Fools Joke, I wouldn't be surprised if it was. Otherwise, oh boy...we are gonna be in for some high-quality memes.

I'd like to believe you, but I'm not convinced. You see, Kamikaze Douga (the animation studio) is producing this anime movie called Cocolors later this year. And the poster for this show looks suspiciously similar to Cocolors's original one.

These are both examples made months before this announcement. So, call me skeptical.

I didn't even know that this had a manga in the first place. I thought people just made memes of Chen from Touhou looking like that and going HONK.
What the actual fuck...I guess this is the closest we'll get to an official Touhou anime lmao

Wait really? Too bad its meme stuff will come off as dated since the manga did them when they were actually new.

The poster art is hilarious.

I'm really looking forward to this (trusting that despite being announced around April 1st, this is the real deal).

I agree that the key visual looks alike (the background is the same), but Cocolors (or "Cocolor Special Collaboration Live") already premiered for two days limit on February (not "producing", but already "premiered"), according to that article you linked. And it was already premiered at Tokushima's Machi Asobi on October 2016.

I can say I'm excited about this! The manga is pretty wild, to say at least. Though I won't be surprised if it's a 3-minutes short.

I feel like as part of the comedy, they posted the announcement on April fools. Just to make it that much more unbelievable when it gets released
