Pop Team Epic has appeared on almost every streaming service (I can watch it on Crunchyroll or HiDive or AnimeLab) and other than the fact that AnimeLab describes it as an absurdist comedy I didn’t know anything about it. Having watched an episode, I’m still pretty much in the dark.
The show gives us an intro-sequence that looks fairly standard anime opening. Boy wakes up, parents leaving on a trip, he’s told not to bother some guy and then he wonders who that is and the opening theme starts. Then the show throws that out and starts over with the two girls who I guess are actually the main characters who parody a range of things and generally act strangely. I very swiftly lost interest in both the girls, their antics and this wasn’t assisted by the art style. While I am sure some people will fall in love with the comedy here, I’m just going to drop it here and now and not think about it anymore other than to wonder why this show is so easily available when other shows are nearly impossible to access.
Thanks for reading.
