Let a new age of animated shit-posting reign!
Earlier today, Funimation unveiled their English dub cast for Pop Team Epic. The series will star the following:
- Popuko: Christopher R. Sabat & Justin Briner
- Pipimi: Ian Sinclair & Colleen Clinkenbeard
- Daichi: Clifford Chapin
- Sosogu: Bryn Apprill
Cris George is directing the adaptation, which features scripts by Emily Neves. Manuel Aragon is working as ADR Engineer for the project.
The first episode went live on FunimationNow earlier today.
Pop Team Epic is a self-billed “shitty anime” that’s based on Bkub Okawa’s manga of the same name. The team of Aoi Umeki and Jun Aoki (Oshiruko – The Summertime Mischief) are directing the project at Kamikaze Douga. Aoki is also in charge of series composition duties, while Kotaro Sudo (Ajin – Demi-Human, Seitokai Yakuindomo) fills the dual role of planner and producer.
Crunchyroll, HIDIVE, Funimation, and other networks are streaming the show as it airs in Japan. Sentai Filmworks currently holds the show’s license.
Funimation describes the show as:
They’re crude, rude, and a little…cute? Get ready for the bizarre comedy antics of the small and tall Popuko and Pipimi!
