Looks like the Hollywood remake of Revolutionary Girl Utena.
Did ANOTHER thread get deleted or something?
the same guy deleted the thread when he left
God help me, I'm starting to rather like this shit.
Pop Team Epic isn't random madness. It's injokes and clichés that the author didn't bother to share with the audience. Most internet communities are connected to a degree. So this is like going back in time and having your first virginal experiences with the internet again.
"What is that?" "That's not funny." "Why are you…?" "Wait, I think I get it." "No, I don't get it at all."
And then you get hooked.
>your first virginal experiences
This pretty much describes my experience with Pop Team Epic.>WTF>this isn't funny>it fucking sucks>why am I still watching?>actually this is kinda funny
Now I look forward to it all week.
So I guess futaba / 2ch users would get this a lot more easily? Because honestly I can't see most people who aren't already 'getting it' going past episode 2.
I can into this
A lot of the western fans of the manga seem to enjoy not understanding the jokes, but yeah. It's popular among people who spend a lot of time on the japweb even if they don't know the language well. Of course you'll probably get plenty of the jokes if you've just been watching anime and playing Japanese games for a while.
Exactly, and most of the tropes it riffs on are pretty well-known even if you don't get the exact, specific reference.
That said, I didn't understand this week's Pop Team 8bit at all. What do yukkuri have to do with baseball?

The long-form skits were my least favorite part early on, but they've really been stepping them up recently.
the paper guitar story thing was absolutely amazing
it's the type of thing that'd get 200m views if it were on YouTube
That was a work of art.

It was such a moving story.
where'd you get the uncensored ver.?
Some guy on Reddit uncensored it.
It wasn't so much funny as high as fuck
Honestly the entire show felt like a fucking acid trip
Things that I think:
• Criminally good opening
• First episode was absolute madness in a good way
• Subsequent episodes were the absolute same madness in a boring way
• Some good highlights in the middle, but overall just kinda unfunny
Overall rating: Positive meh.
It probably reflects my own confusion more than the quality of the show, but it took a few episodes for it to grow on me. After about three or four, I started to get in the groove and enjoy myself. I'm sure if I rewatched it, I'd like the early episodes a lot more than I did the first time.
I showed Pop Team Epic to my mom now that it's on Toonami, and she actually chuckled a few times.
