To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Pop Team Epic. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of pop culture most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Popuko’s egoistic outlook, which is deftly woven into her characterization- her personal philosophy draws heavily from Nietzschean literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Pop Team Epic truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humor in Popuko’s existential catchphrase “Ah. You are motherfucker?,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Ragnar Redbeard’s Nordic epic Might Is Right. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Bukubu Okawa’s genius wit unfolds itself on their computer screens. What fools.. how I pity them.
