Average Rating

Poputepipikku turns absurdist comedy up to eleven with its pop culture references and surreal hilarity. With two bonafide high school girl protagonists—the short and exceptionally quick to anger Popuko, and the tall and unshakably calm Pipimi—they throw genres against the wall and don't wait to see what sticks. Parody is interlaced with drama, action, crudeness, and the show's overarching goal—to become a real anime.

Pop Team Epic saw people calling Neo Yokio the greatest anime shitpost of all time and said “Hold my Esahi Super Dry”


Hoshiiro Girldrop is a charming rom-com with a lot of heart and grounded romance; it’s a real standard for the idol genre moving forward


This just might be the greatest shitpost anime ever…




Absolute gold. Is this even legal?


Miyazaki: “anime was a mistake”
Me: (sees this) “What are you talking about, sensei?!”


Super weird, but that’s part of its charm. It’s a truly unique anime with its sketch comedy show and ridiculous writing
