Plot Summary: Uhhhh………………………………………………………….. 

OK, for real.

Two high school girls, the short and exceptionally quick to anger Popuko, and the tall and much more calm Pipimi, do insane things and swear like sailors in this absurdist comedy filled with references and meta humor.


First Thoughts: The first scene of this feels like you’re watching the wrong anime like…..what the hell is this? And then after that, you are in for a bunch of WTF and references and weird shit going on. I think there’s a Your Name reference in there and even though I haven’t seen it yet, I figured it out right away.

Hell, they do a rerun inside the same episode but with different voices!! This is MADNESS, This is INSANITY and…….I laughed my ass off and these are intentional laughs. Hell, I’m laughing thinking and re-hashing my experience with it. It’s so damn absurd, I’m definitely watching this every Saturday.


I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and why I have the keys to Surreal Resolution’s HQ? Oh, well. *opens door*
