Pop Team Epic is coming back for Season 2 later this Fall, and the series is getting ready for more of its wacky adventures with an appropriately strange trailer teasing what’s coming for each of the voice actors in the new season! The anime taking on Bkub Okawa’s original gag series was one of the most unique anime adaptations released in recent memory as the series was not only stacked to the brim with jokes and gags, but the structure of itself was odd as well as it provided multiple versions of the same exact story beats and jokes.
with Pop Team Epic Season 2 making its premiere this October, there are still several questions about its production left to be answered. The first of which was whether or not the multiple voice actors playing the different versions of the main duo, Popuko and Pipimi, would be returning for the characters and it seems like that will be the case as the newest trailer for the new season sees each of Popuko’s actors (Nana Mizuki, Sho Hayami, and Sora Tokui) open up about the pressures of voice acting all while the footage itself shows off the wacky series. Check it out below:
Pop Team Epic Season 2 will be kicking off on October 1st, but has yet to reveal where international fans will be able to check out the new episodes. Featuring returning writer and director Jun Aoki (Gal & Dino) for Kamikaze Douga and Space Neko Company, it’s also yet to be revealed whether or not Season 2 of the anime will be organized in the same way as the first season with multiple voice actors bringing the main duo to life across multiple versions of the same kind of segments (that once actually confused Netflix into cutting off half of each episode).
If you wanted to catch up with Pop Team Epic before the second series debuts and see just how wacky it can be, you can now find the first season streaming with Netflix and Crunchyroll. The series is officially described as such, “Crude, rude, and a little…cute? Get ready for the larger-than-life attitude of Popuko and Pipimi, the small and tall stars of Pop Team Epic! Based off the bizarre four- panel webcomic by Bukubu Okawa comes a comedy that’ll throw you off with its out-there jokes and intense absurdity. You think you’re ready for these girls? Think again, F#%**er!”
