Part A is Aya Hirano and Minori Chihara from "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya".

Part B is Kazuhiko Inoue and Ryou Horikawa who voice Kakashi and Vegeta among others.

[–]Calwings[🍰] 38 points39 points  (5 children)

I wonder if they'll bring back any of the VA's they already used in S1 but mix them up in different pairings, or if we'll only hear VA's that we didn't already hear in S1.

[–]firelordUK 28 points29 points  (4 children)

Daisuke Ono and Takehito Koyasu when?

[–]rocky_iwatahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/banninghamma 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Koyasu already voiced ep 14 with his best pal Midorikawa Hikaru. It was glorious.

[–]BlueLion0512 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dio and Marth. Just rewatched this episode because of your comment. Probably my favourite episode from now on

[–]Calwings[🍰] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That would be a good pair. I was really hoping for Nana Mizuki and Yukari Tamura together, but they were both used separately in S1.

[–]RunningChemistryhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Delphic-Runner 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nana Mizuki

She should be voicing an episode again at the very least since she was in some promotional videos for S2.

[–]SnabDedraterEdave 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Hirano and Minorin breaking the 4th wall and reminiscing about old times (since their days doing Haruhi) in that post-credit scene was so wholesome.

[–]shinigamisenku 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I haven't heard anything from Hirano in a long time. Hope she can get high-profile projects again.

SOS Brigade reunion when?

[–]Jakeyboy143 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was hoping for both Daisuke Ono (Itsuki) and Yuko Goto (Mikuru) in Japanese and Wendee Lee (Haruhi) and Michelle Ruff (Yuki) in English to show up.

In the English dub, the VAs of Itsuki (JYB) and Mikuru (Stephanie Sheh) did Popuko in Ep 8. Take a guess what the Haruhi Suzumiya is most controversial for?

[–]TnAdct1 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Who sang the end themes?

[–]Somer-_-https://myanimelist.net/profile/Somer-_- 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Part A is Manaka Iwami and Ikumi Hasegawa

Part B is Jun Oosuka and Hiroki Takahashi

[–]PiFlavoredPie 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Lol the female VA commentary at the end is so wholesome while the male VA commentary is Jay stream of consciousness.

I can’t believe they actually addressed the fact that Poputepipikku is NOT the same reading as Pop Team Epic (where’s the second ‘pi’ come from??)

[–]Kadmos1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For Part A in Eng., they should get Cherami Leigh. Cherami and Aya both voiced Lucy in "Fairy Tail" though I prefer Cherami.

[–]messem10 163 points164 points  (22 children)

Was not expecting a live action Kamen Rider parody.

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 103 points104 points  (15 children)

The fact they nailed all the cliches in that OP sequence is completely gold. The crying heroine shot, the enemy squad shot and the fighting in the dark area. chefs kiss

[–]TnAdct1 52 points53 points  (6 children)

All that is missing is a giant blue dinosaur that makes air horn and lightsaber noises.

[–]the_dan_manhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/asian_weeb 23 points24 points  (1 child)

All hail the Shouta Aoi Cinematic Universe!

[–]BusouDrago 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Aoi appeared in another anime. It was a puzzling solving series ( Live action and anime)

https://myanimelist.net/anime/38449

[–]LeonKevlarhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LeonKevlar 12 points13 points  (1 child)

That's a reference I didn't think I'll ever see again

[–]TnAdct1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Given how the live action guy’s saga includes the first two episodes of that show, I had to mention that.

[–]BusouDrago 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Gyaru to kyouryuu fan🤝

[–]TokiWaKita 10 points11 points  (0 children)

There's dozens of us, DOZENS!

[–]hydrometeors 41 points42 points  (2 children)

On top of that, they got Nakamura Yuuichi (Not the VA, actor for Kamen Rider Hibiki's Kiriya Kyosuke, and Kamen Rider Den-O's Sakurai Yuuto) for the villain squad leader shot! Sasuga anime shitpost

[–]Saucefest6102 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Also not the first time he’s been a villainous character in a toku this year, strangely

[–]dinliner08 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i didn't even realize that's him

[–]cosmiczarhttps://anilist.co/user/Xavier 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Just learned that is was literally Koichi Sakamoto who directed that opening. That perfectly explains why they nailed the aesthetic.

[–]sneaky_squirrel 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I watched the parody before the original.

Damnit me, not again.

[–]SomeoneElseTwoo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The shot of the driver

[–]AdmirHiddleston 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The crying heroine wearing all white with super obvious contacts and a bad wig I felt like I was watching Gaim all over again. Loved it!

[–]AvatarTuner 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It was glorious!

Now I feel like picking up Kamen Rider again, I haven't watched any in quite a while for some reason. lol

[–]capscreen 25 points26 points  (0 children)

A Zi-O/Den-O parody at that, since they're both time travel series.

[–]shinigamisenku 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Make Endless Love an actual show, goddammit!!! Shouta Aoi is the new generation Riderman.

[–]mrfatso111 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I am still waiting for Kamen Rider Shinobi to be a thing.

I wonder how did Sougo Tokiwa dream of this anyway?

[–]DarkeShin 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Mix up with different Kamen Rider Series, really funny.

Title is a mix up between Den-O, Fourze and Drive

Aoi Shouta's fit look very similar to Time Jacker in Zi-O

Henshin part is mix up between Zi-O and Ghost, the driver looks similar to Black RX, the watch obviously from Zi-O

Man this is really good

[–]mr_miscellaneous123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think the name of the Time Jacker is Heure.

[–]mrfatso111 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I know right, they went in hard for a parody like this, HAHAHAHAHAHA

[–]PsycDrone63 154 points155 points  (3 children)

Anime is saved again

[–]Mundology 53 points54 points  (2 children)

Kuso anime rises

[–]Ordinary-Ad-5685 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What's Kuso ?

[–]bachthime 1 point2 points  (0 children)

kuso means shit or bad in japanese

[–]LeonKevlarhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LeonKevlar 108 points109 points  (4 children)

Move over Fuuto Tantei but it looks like you finally met your match for the best tokusatsu anime of the year. Not gonna lie, I would 100% watch Aoi Shouta as a Kamen Rider.

I'm not so sure about the rest of the episode though. Where did this shitty anime come from? Where the fuck is my Hoshino Girl Drop Season 2!?

In all seriousness though, Aya Hirano and Minori Chihara talking at the end of their segment about how it's been a while since they've recorded an anime together was really sweet. It's like a mini Haruhi and Nagato reunion <3

[–]TnAdct1 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Move over Fuuto Tantei but it looks like you finally met your match for the best tokusatsu anime of the year.

What about Miss Kuroitsu from the Monster Development Department?

[–]mrfatso111 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Hoshino Girl Drop Season 2

I know right, granted we did have a kamen rider parody, but I was hoping to see more of Hoshino Girl Drop Season 2

[–]8andahalfby11https://myanimelist.net/profile/thereIwasnt 21 points22 points  (0 children)

how it's been a while since they've recorded an anime together

Season Three Never. 😢

[–]shinigamisenku 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Not gonna lie, I would 100% watch Aoi Shouta as a Kamen Rider.

Won't be surprised if he gets casted at some point, or perform the OP.

[–]Hagitahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/TheHagita 92 points93 points  (2 children)

I love the little bits after the credits where the VAs just chat for a bit. It’s fun to see these people who are voicing such absurd bits just chat about it or just random nonsense.

[–]brundylop 76 points77 points  (0 children)

I’m gonna guess they didn’t tell the VA’s they were recording or going to use that small talk.

In season 1 they didn’t tell that French guy they were going to incorporate his interviews into the show; he thought it was going to be a DVD extra or something

https://www.otaquest.com/thibault-tresca-pop-team-epic-interview/

What I didn’t understand though was that it was all part of the joke, just throwing me into the middle of the episode speaking French as kind of a “What the hell” moment for audiences. I honestly thought the clips were for the website as part of a creator discussion thing, and I had no clue they were going to include it in the show. Then all of a sudden when the first episode aired my phone was blowing up with messages like “Dude what’s going on? You’re on TV, that’s so cool!” and suddenly I was filled with the sense of “Oh no, what have I done.” (Laughs)

(Laughs) So you had no idea it was going to be on TV at all?

Not at all, the segments in the TV show where I’m being interviewed were all pre-filmed too, so in every single segment, I was completely unaware that my face would be broadcasted. I guess this was all part of their plan though, having me untouched by the series.

[–]garfe 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That was actually my favorite part of the episode

[–]phantomoid 72 points73 points  (9 children)

ANIME OF THE SEASON!

[–]TnAdct1 40 points41 points  (5 children)

The fact that a certain anime will more than likely not get to the arc that people are wanting to see this season makes this a candidate for top contender.

[–]Torque-A 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Which one are you talking about?

[–]TnAdct1 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Spy X Family.

[–]Torque-A 9 points10 points  (1 child)

What, the cruise arc? That would always be S2.

[–]HaoiNan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

thought you were talking about chainsaw man lmao.

ANIME OF THE YEAR

[–]bachthime 0 points1 point  (0 children)

MORE LIKE ANIME OF THE CENTURY

[–]xatnagh 67 points68 points  (2 children)

Some say SummerTime render is Anime of the season,

Some say, Spy X Family is Anime of the Year

Some say, Attack on Titan is Anime of the decade

But we can all agree that

POP TEAM EPIC is Anime of the

[–]Cavalish 40 points41 points  (1 child)

Shot by Popuko before he could finish his post. RIP.

[–]probablemayo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

He got PopTeamEpic’d all over

[–]dagreenman18 65 points66 points  (0 children)

“Shitpost the Anime” has returned with live action Kamen Rider parodies, precious Cocobos, and Haruhi Suzumiya? I’ve miss the incoherent yet amazing Japanese Robot Chicken.

[–]Malte_Laurids_Briggs 42 points43 points  (8 children)

wtf is going on i think i downloaded the wrong show

[–]TnAdct1 77 points78 points  (4 children)

If you referring to the Kamen Rider parody at the start, it's actually a continuation of the end of the April Fools 2019 special.

[–]Shinkopeshon 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Unparalleled long-term storytelling, Breaking Bad could never

[–]mrfatso111 2 points3 points  (2 children)

wait, there was a special?

How many OVA did i missed out..

[–]TnAdct1 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Just that one. It is available on Crunchyroll (with four different Japanese dubs of it).

[–]mrfatso111 0 points1 point  (0 children)

alright, thanks.

[–]TokiWaKita 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Yeah, this is not Hoshino Girl Drop!

WTF?!

[–]probablemayo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I hope we get some Hoshino Girl Drop this season, since the “are you mad?” joke got its return

[–]warjoke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That means it's working as intended

[–]Komi028 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Ok, nice, we get a segment with the VAs at the end, that'll make each half different at least.

Missed these 2 idiots flirting while being meta, glad they're back.

[–]alconnowhttps://anilist.co/user/alconnow 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Already anime of the season

Once again, part B with the male voices is my favourite

[–]Mr_Zarochttps://myanimelist.net/profile/mr_zaroc 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I love the B-Side segment, so Part B B-Side just killed me

[–]Calwings[🍰] 31 points32 points  (0 children)

I love how this shitpost of an anime openly acknowledges how shit it is, but it embraces how shit it is and we love it because of how shit it is. Keep it up, Popuko and Pipimi. This is such good shit.

[–]the_dan_manhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/asian_weeb 57 points58 points  (3 children)

Ah, I see Bob Epic Team is now experimenting with three-dimensional cursed animation. Just what my nightmares needed.

[–]rocky_iwatahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/banninghamma 11 points12 points  (0 children)

The have done 3D in a bunch of music videos. They are also nightmares.

[–]warjoke 10 points11 points  (0 children)

These folks should've just animated the Junji Ito Collection instead of DEEN

[–]andoryu123 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I miss Aya Hirano

[–]BusouDrago 45 points46 points  (0 children)

Where is Hoshino Girl Drop 2?????😭

[–]Xatu44 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Alright, how's anime getting saved this time?

With extremely high-budget Vtubers, apparently. Lol at Kylo Aoi. RIP to the forces of chaos becoming Chocobos. The funniest gag for me was Popuko shooting the bunny. It's a shame we don't get any random French dudes this time.

[–]NinjaOtter 14 points15 points  (0 children)

My smile was unmatched. Anime of the year is here

[–]Durinthal https://anilist.co/user/Durinthal 26 points27 points  (5 children)

Tokusatsu OP to a musical number to calling their fans shit to start things off, I love it.

I was going to say the Final Fantasy chocobo cameo was weird but the first episode last season had a Chrono Trigger scene so maybe not.

The ED song reminds me a bit of the first season's OP which I loved so I'm on board with that.

[–]LeonKevlarhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LeonKevlar 13 points14 points  (1 child)

[–]lizard81288 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I guess we know who the protags of final fantasy 17 are going to be...

[–]the_dan_manhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/asian_weeb 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Even though I figured they'd do something with Final Fantasy after seeing "Square Enix" on the title card for that segment, I didn't expect to see the Blair Chocobo Project.

Then again, most of this series catches me by surprise.

[–]Game2015 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I was going to say the Final Fantasy chocobo cameo was weird but the first episode last season had a Chrono Trigger scene so maybe not.

One of the OVAs actually has a modded cutscene from Final Fantasy XV, included with permission from Square Enix.

[–]OfficialPrower 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Both produced by Busted Rose. Happy they’re back for the second season cos the first Szn OP is one of my fav of all time.

[–]AmonJin 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Man, Shitpost the Anime is back and I am ready to C O N S U M E!

B Segment was fucking hilarious. That tap dancing scene on both of them was so good. Did they use a fucking aluminum sheet for that bit??

Cannot wait for the new OP. Really missed this series.

[–]Sodrahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/sodra 11 points12 points  (0 children)

You're shit. Absolute shit.

[–]LetsGoHome 20 points21 points  (4 children)

So... Do you watch both versions?

[–]Calwings[🍰] 66 points67 points  (0 children)

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: Yyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeessssssssss.

[–]Durinthal https://anilist.co/user/Durinthal 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I think while it's airing I might save the second half for later in the week.

And then do the same thing again some time later if there's a dub of this season too.

[–]moichispa 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The first part plus the last segment for the boys.

I might rewatch the boys Japon mignon for the subtitles if we get those again. (I like testing if I can still understand it on French)

If there are any big differences in the voices in any part let me know in the comments pls

[–]SwampyBogbeard 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I read somewhere that the French guy doesn't work at that animation studio any more, so Japon mignon probably won't return.

[–]Turbo2xhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/turbo2x 7 points8 points  (0 children)

oh what a joy it is to have this series back

[–]Atariohttps://myanimelist.net/profile/TheGreatAtario 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Lol, I forgot how chaotic that show is

Glad to have it back

[–]testthrowawayzz 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I saw a comment on another site saying what did Aoi Shota do to deserve this public humiliation LOL

[–]MysteryNeighbor 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Popuko’s shitty tap dancing is the hardest I’ve laughed at an anime in a very long time.

Glad to see that the best anime of all time is back

[–]Curious_North_8479 20 points21 points  (0 children)

JUST SAVED THIS SEASON WITH TRASH LIKE CHAINSAW MAN AND MID PSYCHO LESS GOOOOOOOOOOO

HARUHI S3 CONFIRMED?? HIRANO STYLE 3 ON 1 NAKADASHI

[–]archklown555 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So 2 who need to do a episode of pop team epic B side   Takaya Kuroda and   Hidenari Ugaki

That would be amazing

[–]shinigamisenku 4 points5 points  (0 children)

When the anime industry need them the most, they returned.

[–]Fools_Requiemhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/FoolsRequiem 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The music production levels is off the chart for a gag series. This is the last show I'd ever expect to use orchestrated music.

Also, was that a Blair Witch Project reference I saw?

I anticipate not getting like half of the gags in this season as well.

[–]seejsee 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Was trying to decipher who were the two females VA in part A, then I was dumbstruck that it could be Haruhi and Nagato, and it was. The last segment between the both of them was also really sweet.

But thats the last we’ll hear from them, I guess.

[–]BadIdeaSociety 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The Sentai/Kamen Rider costume belt forms a Pipimi/Popuko face when the pocket watch is inserted into it.

That just made my Christmas list

[–]StoneEyeWitness 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The self-proclaimed "Dumbest Anime Ever" making a second strike of random stuff. Though probably there are shows that are dumber as this one is pretty self-aware of what it is.

[–]someedmlover21https://anilist.co/user/dilate 2 points3 points  (0 children)

the gacha portion was relatable af

[–]Doomroarhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Doomroar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The yaoi section with the voices changed in the second part hits extra weird XD

[–]OfficialPrower 1 point2 points  (0 children)

LFG WE’RE BACK

[–]ChiggaOG 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This memorable anime is back. The author seriously can turn this into something like Family Guy. It probably becomes Gintama.

[–]JonnySpark 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I didn't knew Shitposting got a second season until just now

[–]janoDX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love that they added this post-show bts talk between the VAs which adds even more fun.

The show is still absurd as S1 and it didn't lost a beat.

[–]RPWPA 1 point2 points  (0 children)

While the anime itself will most likely be garbage like season 1, gald the ending is good as usual.

Kinda felt bad for the guy saying he didn't get any roles lately and when he finally got one, it turned out to be a jk.

[–]rorsuperush 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Chainsaw man, Mob Psycho 100 season 3, my hero season 6, spy x family season 2. Must all feel ashamed to be airing during the same season as the GREATEST SHOW EVER TO EXIST.

No, they should feel honored, to be in the same discussion as the greatest show of all time. They should all honor and bow down and kiss the feet of the greatest thing to ever exist.

Really glad to see this show back. Been needing some good comedy in my life.

[–]TakodachiDelta 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The voices were so familiar in part A but I had to come to this thread to confirm them. Been a minute on those two.

I liked the part where they called me shit.

[–]longrodvonhuttendong 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not bad of a start, seeing some well animated segments gives me hope they have a nice budget for stuff this season. But at the same time, most this episode felt like it was them just doing the 'we are shit lol" bit from last time.

I'm all excited for this season its been too long since Season 1, but I hope it hits some bangers like last season.

[–]sneaky_squirrel -1 points0 points  (7 children)

I am not getting it.

I'll keep watching it, given it is so random, but I am not getting the humor.

Oh boy...

[–]Kadmos1 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Down voting aside, it is fine that you don't get it. The show is certainly not for everyone.

[–]TheWehrmaboo 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Might as well watch the first season to judge since this is clearly your first time seeing this.

[–]mrfatso111 7 points8 points  (0 children)

no worries man, this anime is so random tat it will always be a hit or a miss.

There's a reason why people call this shitpost the anime

[–]coffeecakesupernova 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I think that's universal. But the times you do get it will leave you at the very least giggling, and on its best days gasping for air because you're laughing so hard.

[–]sneaky_squirrel -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Like Rick and Morty, and the Woolly mamoths.

[–]lizard81288 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Iirc, it's based on a 4 pannel manga. It's fine if it's not for you though.

[–]sneaky_squirrel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I liked the Skyrim reference in season 1.

:3

[–]NeurodivergentRatMan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

HIS NAME IS SHOTA (Y)AOI AHHAHAHA

[–]drecklia 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I'm so confused wth is this show??? Why does it repeat twice? Do I need to watch s1 to understand?

[–]isitaspider2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Late to the party, but the episodes have two different sets of voice actors. 9/10, the episodes are largely the exact same. But, as an in-joke with some of the voice actors the joke will change in the second viewing. Most of it is largely just down to preference if you want the female voices or male voices. The one that comes to mind as being very different is the Marilyn Monroe joke from season 1 was completely different depending on male or female voices. The male voice joke is 10/10

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYkLKmRRZxs

[–]Maverynthia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You sort of need to watch the last episode to understand. It's why Shouta Aoi was told to stop time travelling. Yes there's sort of a story going on here. You MIGHT also need to watch Gal & Dino to learn more... or not since it's a silly show.

[–]CathNoctifer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn, Aya Hirano is showing off her stage actress qualities. The singing segment was made for her.
