So yes, this show does make use of some tried and true approaches to telling jokes, and frequently succeeds at maintaining the elements of surprise, buildup and payoff.

The kick-ass opening sets the tone for the rest of the series. The fourth in the Pop Team Epic album cover tribute series, this design pays tribute to the perennial indie favorite's In an Aeroplane Over the Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel. However, Pop Team Epic is no ordinary comedy, and in addition to these more conventional approaches, it also carries a number of less-common tricks in its grab bag.
Pop Team Epic had none of the sort. Our in-house design team creates the free packs, so they're super high quality : Feel free to email us if you have more questions: support stickerpop. Perhaps most critically, while wildly inconsistent in terms of quality, it shows an ability to tell its jokes without falling into common pitfalls of non sequitur and referential comedies… most of the time. What this means is that so long as Pop Team Epic is able to set up and deliver actual punchlines through these self-consistent skits, it can function as an effective comedy despite its apparent randomness of subject matter and the prevalence of pop culture references. I do want to point out early that each episode is really just two copies of the same stuff placed together in the same 30 min timeframe.
In this instance, these conditions were met, showing that, at least some of the time, Pop Team Epic seems to understand that its frequent references cannot carry the comedy on its own. A character proclaims an action they'll perform in 30 minutes; the show shows them standing there waiting in real time as the ending sequence plays in the background. On the topic of being eye pleasant, the discriminative art style and simplistic animation, mixed with a live-action skit, 3D segments about France, which in all honesty, were mediocre at best, the previously mentioned appaling Paint drawings create a rather distinctive vibe and feel. Pop Team Cooking, on the other hand, while suffers from the same problem of being lacklustre and inherently bad beyond salvation, is at least somewhat eye pleasant, which didn't lead my internal organs to be dying in an agonizing pain because of what I was seeing on my screen. Regardless, many of them just seemed to truly be random, have no point, or in rarer cases, simply exist as a reference with no apparent joke attached. On a more straightforward level, Pop Team Epic will change up the styles and even mediums in which it presents a given skit. Enjoy this new feature for StickerPop Gold members! Pop Team Epic, however, often defies this conventional setup by placing an unexpected punchline near the beginning of the skit - what would be equivalent to the first or second panel in its original form - with the remaining panels adding onto it in some way, such as by taking the joke to further extremes or making humorous comments.
For example, in a strip which also got adapted into a scene in the , she effortlessly remained calm in spite of Popuko punching her repeatedly. And, if you keep showing non sequitur after non sequitur, and the viewer interprets that as the joke, it could get incredibly obnoxious. There is not really a story here beyond the meta humor and the lives of the two main characters. The series features a variety of humor, ranging from black comedy i.

While I do my best to provide sufficient protection beforehand, including providing a tracking number, I am not responsible for the condition of packages after they have left my hands. This is only one approach and not a perfect explanation by any stretch, nor are these anything close the only variables which may be involved. In pretty much every decent to great series, you need to have some sort of story or settings implemented. Constantly relying on reference humor will mean that the audience gets tired of it eventually. You can check where your product is shipping from on your Cart page. But hey, at least the anime nerds that like obscure music will think you're super cool, right? All this, because I don't think a work like this should see its weird, experimental nature become an excuse to immediately write off its craft before at least giving an honest and open look at the content on display. No matter which of these reasons you choose, all of them are pale in comparison to the most basic aspect a pun, by definition, has to have in order to at least try to make an addressee laugh - the intention to be comical.
Other than that, it was an enjoyable episode, and I look forward to more. As a brief aside, this displays what I look for in referential humour. Pipimi showing a couple other girls one of her blood-stained hands in order to protect Popuko from their teasing. It allows creativity to flow and flourish without any restrictions. Additionally, you can now start streaks using your collected stickers with your friends by making a Sticker Party with them. Popuko and Pipimi are just really there with their rather contrasting personalities to set up each joke and play it out in the most absurd and ridiculous of fashions. I'll try to be brief with this review, cause even with just reviews, it's hard to really input anything decent about this series.
