Pop Team Epic Episode 5(Half of the time I didn’t know what they were making fun of, but somehow I liked it)
Okay, I need to watch this show with the sound on, there is no way of getting around it. I usually listen to music when I’m watching subtitled dramas and anime. The music is usually Hands Up Techno or My Childhood Throwbacks (any songs that I heard in my childhood that I loved, mostly late 80’s 90’s and 2000’s). This has nothing to with anything. I’ll go watch the show with the sound on.
It is will be hard, but I’m going to do it. ( not really, just joking).
See you back in 15 minutes!!
Well I’m back. With the sound, it totally reminds me of a Dank Meme complitation and is way more funnier.
So the first skit of the show was called Don’t Call Me Senpai, where Popuko and Pipmi are married to each other are awful parents because they go to the pachinko parlor every day instead of working. In the beginning of the skit, it shows a girl named Iyo throwing a ball to her stereotypical senpai( senpai who has looks, good grades, on the sports teams, etc.) Then she learns her father(Pipmi) is getting married, but she doesn’t know to who. The person he is going to marry is the senpai’s mother(Popuko) and her and the senpai are living together.
The Gundam style dancing. Literally what is that?
After a few years of the parents wasting all the money on pachinko( and being annoying), Iyo tries to stab them but Senpai stops her and tells her that he loves her.
Reminds me of Marmalade Boy( ha, I love how this show makes me think of something I only watched one episode of), except the main characters actually don’t like each other at first. And it reminds of all the negligent parents in anime and generic senpai characters. By the way, she accidentally stabs Senpai in this incident( and surprisingly he is okay…)
Then the cooking show. The made fun of every cooking show in 2 minutes. Actually, less than 2 minutes. Mecha is one of the jars and some random names that probably mean something, but I have no clue what they mean.
Then the retro game part….I don’t even understand it, but think they are making fun of sports games in general. And the Window XP background…throwbacks to flash games. When the computer freezes and it starts making that noise (Window XP problems, and nothing to do with the actual show)
Then the Bob Team Epics always get me. The purposely bad animation and the weird things that happen. The first one was where they were deciding where to go on a trip and a “wise” owl tells them to go to the pet shop to get him some food and they were like no.
I’m not looking!!!!
Also I forgot!! The actual comic strips skits. There is one with the weird stroking thing….what was literally that? I don’t even know, I can’t even question this show..
Then the one if you hiccup 100 times, you’ll die(haha)
In the credits, Popuko is chasing after a rabbit in an Alice and Wonderland-style. I don’t know what that means, but she never catches up to the rabbit. But they are also in a desert in America on Route 66. I thought of Road Runner and Wille Coyote for a second there. Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd? Old school cartoons just come to mind after last episode.
Lastly, the Hoshiiro Girldrop ending piece after the credit. That part makes me laugh because the show is so generic.
My review is done, but the conversations never stop. I still be getting likes on comments that posted years ago. Enjoy the show and leave a comment.
