Pop Team Epic 2 will begin broadcasting on October 1 of this year and it will also make history as the first anime to stream on TikTok LIVE. The gag comedy series will be animated by studios Kamikaze Douga (known for animating JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure opening themes) and Space Neko Company (Ore, Tsushima).
Jun Aoki will be directing the second season and taking care of the series composition. Gin is composing the music. A key visual was previously revealed:
The story is based on absurd comedy manga series written and illustrated by Bkub Okawa. It often contains slapstick comedy and crude humor and each episode includes a number of short skits while featuring the adventures of the main characters.
Crunchyroll streamed the first season of the anime and describes the plot as:
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!
