We're merely two weeks into the new year, and I think we've gotten the series of the year.

How to describe this...
You can't.  Just watch the thing.

Poptepipic transcends the medium to the point where I don't even think I can call it an anime.

I really did not get a South Park vibe from this show. The short absurd bits format reminds me more of Nichijou, only without any tenderness whatsoever. Beyond that and the heavy emphasis on satire of anime and video games, I don't know how I'd describe this show. But I love it.

I love the parts where they parody the idol show and the real-life behind-the-scenes segments the most.

I must have replayed the bit where the fan gets smashed in the face with a bottle like seven or eight times.

This show actually got me interested in anime again after something like four years of ignoring it. Now I'm going through old bookmarks to see what else is good this season.

I find it enjoyable, however extremely overhyped.

I find it best to approach this anime as one would a shitpost, because it is pretty much an elaborate shitpost in anime form anyway :V

There is going to be an actual, real, not-actually-Poptepipic manga anthology of Hoshiiro Girldrop by several artists, at least.

I think Robot Chicken would be a more apt comparison.  Both are similar in their use of rapid fire sketches and short length of a full episode.

Yes. I'm also reminded of RWBY Chibi with the cute yet absurd tone to it.

I agree. The first four episodes had a few bits that made me chuckle, but the rest was...Eh. Then again, I was still in shock by the sheer troll value of the first episode. I want that idol series to be real, darnit!

I'm ok with this. Even moreso if one of them makes a magical girl/mecha musume variant of the show. (is quite into Symphogear)

Interview with Poptepipic's producer.

Edit: Also, episode seven is the best one yet. This show, holy fuck.

Well. That last episode went places.

It seemed the quality of the jokes dipped after the first 4 episodes, but 11 and 12 were really strong. I feel like the "genre parody shorts" took up too much of the episodes when it seemed like the show was at its best with the rapid-fire sketch comedy?
