Announced by series publisher Manga Life Win on Twitter, the massively successful "Pop Team Epic" will be receiving a "third season" to its manga series this October which is set to coincide with the upcoming anime adaptation of the series. Following the lives of not-so-average 14-year old girls Popuko and Papimi, we're taken on a series of fourth wall-breaking adventures that pretty much defy anything I've ever read before, and that's only one of the reasons I love the series so much.
When it comes to outtakes and opinions on the Japanese anime and manga industry, there is nobody that nails the cliche's better than Bkub Okawa. It's through his hyper-surreal 4-panel series "Pop Team Epic" that we see the industry and its key figures hillariously lampooned in ways never done before, let alone by a published manga series. But that's what makes the series so great -- it's not afraid to break boundaries in new and hilarious ways, while also remaining critical of its own actions and progress. I'm sure its grown larger than even Bkub could have imagined, and that's all part of the fun, demanding that the series stay on top of its game at all times.
What the third season has to offer remains to be seen, but we're more than excited to see what comes next. There's currently no official English translation for the series, but I'm sure you've seen Enlgish snippets jammed in your social media aplenty. Are you excited for the third season? I know we certainly are.
