What is "Pop Team Epic"?
Summary of "Pop Team Epic"
"Pop Team Epic" (also known as 'Poptepipic') is a four-panel manga serialized on Takeshobo's 4-panel manga website "Manga Life Win". The creator of this manga is Bkub Okawa, who is also a pixiv user. There have been 2 book volumes published as of now. A sentence (taken from pixiv Encyclopedia) which reads "An extraordinarily absurd 4-panel manga!!" was written right on the center of the first book volume's paper wrapper. And it is no exaggeration; it is an honest description of the series.
At a first glance, the characters appear adorable... But do not let them fool you. This is a comedy manga series that covers all issues and genres you could think of (except dirty jokes); ranging from mundane affairs, parodies of other series, common jokes, satire, nonsense, slapstick, and repeated jokes.
The girl with the round face. 14-year-old. She is a triple threat; she causes troubles, she snaps, and she gets violent. She is in charge of being stupid and silly. She loves to agitate people, but when people agitate her, she snaps and it happens quite often. Not only is she quick to anger, there was also a time when she didn't even bother to hide her murderous intent when a cabin attendant asked her, "Beef or chicken?" In contrast, she gets all bashful when people call her 'cute' and she bursts into tears when Pipimi disappears. So you see, she can also act like her age (?).
The girl with the literally long face. 14-year-old. She is the wiser one of this duo and she likes Popuko very much♡. She is more sensible compared to Popuko. Sometimes she would try to soothe Popuko before she gives into her rage and goes on a rampage, but she is also a target of a mysterious foreign organization, she is able to fix a missile explosion button in one night or create a fake passport for Popuko. In other words, Pipimi is just as threatening as Popuko but in different ways; she is a silent assassin.
She often attacks Popuko, too.
