Pop Team Epic
Pop Team Epic (Japanese: ポプテピピック Hepburn: Poputepipikku), also known as Poptepipic, is a surreal comedy four-panel webcomic and digital manga series written and illustrated by Bukubu Okawa (also known as bkub Okawa), which started serialization on Takeshobo's Manga Life Win website in 2014 and released several other "seasons" after. The manga chronicles the misadventures of two profane 14-year-old girls named Popuko and Pipimi, who encounter a variety of both mundane and bizarre situations and respond to them in equally bizarre and/or exaggerated ways. The comic is noted for its frequent parodies of pop culture and its combination of surrealism, absurdity, and non-sequitur, all of which have contributed to it developing a cult following among western audiences. Takeshobo released the first compiled book volume in print in 2015. The manga is licensed in North America by Vertical.
An anime television series adaptation animated by Kamikaze Douga and produced by King Records premiered on January 6, 2018.
