The 30th Cyber War
Dai-30-ki Dennousen (第30期電脳戦)
Guided by the spirit of Pipimi, Popuko fights against the Elite Four in a shogi tournament. Other skits include Pipimi's fantasies about attractive male characters distracting her from Popuko's venting, Popuko demonstrating an increasingly bizarre variety of regional activities, and Popuko and Pipimi discussing modern slang.
Pop Team Epic 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.
