In addition, the release will include two all-new Bob Epic Team shorts and a set of stickers. As of press time, no further details were revealed, though you can check the box art out below.

The BluBob Epic Team Blu-ray will be available for sale at the “Pop Team Epic Fe” fan event, which will be held at Tokyo’s Makuhari Messe Center on September 15 and 16.

Pop Team Epic aired in the Spring 2018 broadcast season. The show is currently airing on Adult Swim’s Toonami block.

The series is a self-billed “shitty anime” that’s based on Bkub Okawa’s manga of the same name. The series, which aired in the Winter 2018 broadcast season, was directed by the team of Aoi Umeki and Jun Aoki (Oshiruko – The Summertime Mischief) at Kamikaze Douga. Aoki was also in charge of series composition duties, while Kotaro Sudo (Ajin – Demi-Human, Seitokai Yakuindomo) filled the dual role of planner and producer.

Pop Team Epic Key VisualCrunchyroll, HIDIVE, Funimation, and other networks streamed the show as it aired in Japan. Sentai Filmworks currently holds the title’s license.

Funimation streamed Pop Team Epic as part of their SimulDub lineup. They describe it as:

Crude, rude, and a little…cute? Get ready for the larger-than-life attitude of Popuko and Pipimi,the small and tall stars of Pop Team Epic! Based off the bizarre four-panel webcomic by Bukubu Okawa comes a comedy that’ll throw you off with its out-there jokes and intense absurdity. You think you’re ready for these girls? Think again, F#%**er!
