Pop Team Epic Episodes 1 and 2 [First Impression] ( This is basically a giant meme)
This show is basically a giant meme, but it’s an actual show!!
I can’t believe they animated that! And they spent a lot of time on it and reminds me of Robot Chicken, Panty and Stocking, or MAD ( Robot Chicken is a good show and MAD is a great magazine by the way. Panty and Stocking is a parody anime.) Since I loved all of those shows, this looked like something I’d like.(Thanks Eva, you know what’s good.)
I love how they started the show with a generic idol girl anime start. I thought to myself, “ Am I watching the wrong show, I didn’t come here for generic anime?” Then they were like psych, “ Got, y’all!”
Then after that, distorted voices which literally killed me. And all the things they made fun in the first episode. They made fun of Your Name, Sailor Moon, Dragonball, some 80’s anime, and a bunch of tropes in anime in general. It was basically a YouTube Poop video on a giant scale.
The two main characters are in middle school. The short girl with the blonde hair is Popuko and the tall girl with elongated head and purple hair is Pipimi. Then that pink hippo named Bob..
They spent a lot of time, energy and money on this show and thank them for that. And they totally made fun of themselves in the middle of the show.
Then the Bob’s Team Epic…. That purposely badly animated piece just makes me laugh. It’s so bad, you just start laughing and it reminds me of those animated videos on YouTube that are just terrible, but are still funny at the same time.
They are feeding him scorpions. I almost died.
And that weird white guy speaking Japanese? What the h*** is that? I was confused, They making fun of something, but I don’t know what. That animator looks like some kid in my class.
Are you mad yet?
Let get to the second episode! They start with the half finished RPG anime… and those two are summoned and they don’t even fight. They just make fun of everything around….
Then the voice actors getting mad because they have to ad lib. I almost died. Then the main characters under the seat in the room and that ghost. What was that?
Then the felt puppets of them performing a pop song. It could have been a legit song… but the way they did was funny. And the song about not being noticed by your crush. They are making fun of something.
And the little skits. I read the first 3 chapters of the manga and they already did most of the skits in them. The manga is done in 4 panels and it’s a different story each time. There was one page in the chapter where they were at the zoo and they see all the animals. It was funnier in the show because it was part of Bob’s Epic Team and they made it longer. It was pretty good.
To be honest, some of the jokes I did not get. Maybe it was anime I didn’t watch or Japanese specific. There is some jokes in Robot Chicken or MAD you wouldn’t get if you were American or knew of the news here. I’ll just enjoy the show and it’s parody and saitre.
Friend 1: Do you even understand the show?
Friend 1: Why are you laughing?
Me: Because it’s still funny?
Half of it was just randomness honestly. And those hands during the show…they were really good hands and even the f*** you’s in the show.
She’s just singing rounds.

Side Note: When I say ” I almost died”, I had to rewind the show because I was laughing too hard.
