Top 10 Most Brain Melting Poputepipikku (Pop Team Epic) Moments
To say that Pop Team Epic is weird is a massive understatement. This winter 2018 anime, based on the four panel manga of the same name, is so strange that it feels like your brain is melting as you watch it. It stars two foulmouthed chibi schoolgirls named Popuko and Pipimi, who get up to all kinds of bizarre shenanigans in the short skits (rendered in many different styles, like retro video game graphics or intentionally terrible animation) that make up each episode.
Besides its irreverent humor, parodies, and wacky visuals, Pop Team Epic sets itself apart in two ways: Popuko and Pipimi’s voices constantly change, and each episode is split into two versions of the same content. After watching 11 minutes of skits, you get to see a “rebroadcast” with all new voice actors and slightly different jokes. The combination of all this often results in viewers feeling like they traveled through the 2001: A Space Odyssey light tunnel while watching a 10-hour version of Too Many Cooks on fast forward. So to celebrate our new favorite trippy anime, we’re here to count down the top 10 most brain-melting moments in Pop Team Epic!
