Synopsis


Two high school girls, the short and exceptionally quick to anger Popuko, and the tall and much more calm Pipimi, do insane things and swear like sailors in this absurdist comedy filled with references and meta humor.

Looks like you got confused and started this thread a day early. Since no one, to my knowledge, has reported it and it's been up for hours, I'll let it go this time, but remember in the future that new discussion threads for the current season shows should not be started any earlier than the first episode's broadcast date and time.

Yeah that was my fault for not checking more than one site (and not paying attention to my copy paste). Anichart had it for episode 1 to release today, they eventually fixed it.

I'm not watching this show for Winter but from what I heard from Japanese audiences, the first episode was rated really bad.

There's no anticipation topic for this btw.

The first episode is now out on Crunchyroll and HIDIVE. Episodes air at 9:30am Pacific every Saturday. http://www.crunchyroll.com/pop-team-epic/episode-1-youre-the-only-one-im-telling-759087

Episode 1

And it begins with a teaser as I'm not sure if I'm watching the right show or not. Well, that was an epic fail, and that probably was intentional seeing that the second half is a repeat of the first half with some subtle changes to it. At least I give the creators credit for striving to be bad and being fully aware of how it will turn out. Anyway, it doesn't look like it's going to stay given how messed up it is.

Nevertheless, this show's name is actually Pop Team Epic Fail as all I can think about is this:

Yeah I heard that the NND ratings for it were absolutely terrible, gonna watch it now though and see what I think...

Wtf did I just watch??? LOL

Also I'm not sure why the second half of the episode replays the first half.

EDIT: Ok I noticed the subtle differences.

From what I read on Japanese twitter:
pre-release showing, CATV/satellite and NND live broadcast are ALL different (content-wise).
Basically, this show trolled everyone.

Edit: Japanese hoax. Sorry.
Someone I know watched all three version. He ended up watching the same thing 6 times lol

Also, it isn't clear whether the ratings are actually indicative or NND audience just played along with the trolling.
This show bills itself as "shitty anime" after all...

Yeah, I don't think I have enough brain power left to continue watching this.
This was weird, but it it didn't really keep my attention.

I get that it's supposed to be intentionally bad but the thing is there were a few moments here and there that were actually funny or at least sort of clever. The question then is do you really want to slog through garbage to get the few seconds of potentially worthwhile material? I'm heavily leaning towards no but I'll probably check back in next week regardless.

This would have done much better as a short or even micro length series where the actually fun/funny bits could be shown and then that's about it, but I guess that's not what they are going for.

None of you are blazing up before watching this, are you?

I think that makes a significant difference. (See: Magical Somera-chan.)
