There haven't been a single page that haven't made me laugh.

Poputepipikku or Pop Team Epic, is a 4-koma, seinen gag manga that is bustling with intuitive and surreal comedy. With characters dressed as generic high school girls with never changing cute faces, this manga is everything BUT generic.

Being a 4-koma manga, doesn't give much room for a story. Each individual page is a (somewhat) self contained story of head scratching and seemingly random comedy.

The art is oddly fitting for the type of comedy that it delivers. The characters are always drawn with a ":3" face, no matter the situation, which in itself creates comedic situations. ...

The artwork is perfect. in a simplistic way and it adds way more in comedic effect to the dialogue than you could ever imagine.

I'm glad I read this and got a good chunk of the humor without looking into any of it, but I couldn't rate this much higher than a 6.
