THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I don't know what I expected, but I didn't expect the same episode twice with different VAs. I wonder if that'll be in the simulcast. The best parts were the live action and French bits.

It'll be funny seeing people get bewildered by this

Can you really call it a 24 minute episode if they just air the same 10 minute segment back to back with different VAs

I started watching around halfway, and so realizing that it lasted until 1:30 JPN time, I guessed it was full fledged and not realizing it is repeated. Oh well.
Persona 4 (Golden obviously) is better than Persona 5 imo

It was innovative, in terms of the way it was handled. However, the gags themselves were unfunny.

I think this is the worst rated episode of anime I've ever seen on Nico Douga. Truly kuso. As expected of poptepipic

I am just going to say this:

This is like one of the best things I've seen in a long time, for a lot of weird reasons, I don't even know why xD

Just the kind of wacky hijinks I was expecting. Pop Team Epic's first episode did not disappoint.

Not looking forward to the influx of 'overrated' and 'kuso anime' topics, though.

I'm so confused about everything right now. And why would they repeat the same episode just with different VAs? lmao

At least the 2nd time actually translated the French part.

Oh God, it was GOLDEN.
So IT WAS Hoishiiro Girldrop, after all! Nice!
And it was more random than manga itself! The same episode with different voice actors? Why not?
I liked first part better, though. It's like this voice in head when you read manga.
Is it going to be the same till the end? I hope so.
I highly doubt we're going to see better anime this year.

I agree with this. I love the 4-komas, but I don't know how this will last for 20 minutes.

Nothing about this was even remotely funny. I guess this is just the shitposting show of the season then.

Quick question.
Was I the only one having problems with the audio? The music was so loud while the voices were super low, almost unhearable.

Maybe it's just my headset, that's why I'm asking.
Talk about character development? I started liking beer.

That was quite the shitpost but I enjoyed it. Half the gags were funny (the intro was spot on). Half were lazy (the Guardians of the Galaxy parody). Still interested where this goes. I'll reserve full judgement for 3 episodes in but I like the format and see potential. Enjoyed it.

After watching this full, I knew somehow we are going to get trolled.

Anyway, lots of anime originals.

Plus, I hope for the rest of the series that they do not do the repeat thing cuz I think it will get old fast.

Hope they improve the audio for next episode.

Also I hope they leave this double-retake bs just as a one time gag.

They're just fucking with us, that's the way I like it. Lots of salty people in here.

It was interesting to say the least, some of the parodies got a laugh out of me, but I'd like them to animate the funnier jokes from the manga.

I'd say I prefer it with the female voices instead.

EDIT: The more I watch it the more I love it. I've re-watched it 2 more times, and it just gets funnier.

I don't even read the original 4-strip comics, but I was pretty into it. Felt like a lighthearted shitpost through and through, I'll definitely keep watching.

This show is definitely gonna split opinions, I'm glad the actual voices are girly sounding because the male sounding ones didn't match the characters. the ed is pretty good too. I'll stick with this for now.

Don't worry I read the light novel and played the eroge and It'll all make sense once the MCs little sister is introduced and the plot gets rolling. It gets really good after the second time skip, but I doubt the anime will get that far.

This is professional shitposting right there. Starting with hoshiiro girldrop and doing the "play the same short 2 times with different VA's" is a great way to make clear how much this anime is going to fuck with us. Also, the fact that they went out of their way to hire actual french VA's for this is impressive (and i'm pretty sure I've already heard their voices).
9/10, i might elevate this to a 10 if episode 2 is better (aka if it doesn't reiterate what this one did, because it would get boring, but since the studio seems to have understood the manga well enough it shouldn't happen)
To the sky, to the stars, and even beyond in the beautiful infinity of space...
(I wanted something poetic and witty as my signature but i think i epically failed)

I expected weird stuff happening, yet I was not prepared for this.
Now they have made me curious about what kind of insanity they can come up with each week.

Like, I expected the confusion, but I didn't expect this level of mad.

I understand if you don't get the hype about it or its appeal, but seeing people getting legit angry at a nonsensical show it's baffling.

I mean, it was appropriate in various ways xD I do hope they don't play the same thing twice next week tho xD And yeah, a ton of the gags don't translate well into animated form, but I laughed at the Chrono Trigger bit.
