Pop Team Epic Season 1 Story
As already told, the plot of the story revolves around two 14 – years – old girls, Papuko and Pipimi, who most of the time got involved in very exaggerated and confusing situations. Their response is also very bizarre and confusing. As every episode contains a different storyline, it is a little bit tough to tell what the plot is exactly. The series shows us the pop culture of Japan, where we can deeply enjoy their culture, food, and clothing. They both are best and close friends and opposite in some cases.
They were being involved in many skits, with the same confusing and problematic situations. Once they decides to go to France, but Popuko got annoyed with one of the flight attendants who was asking each passenger if he or she will take beef or chicken. Pipimi asked her if she has done anything wrong. The series contains a lot of humor, along with some melodrama and action too, which is needed in between the series to make the audience enjoy the series.
