Pop Team Epic Chapter Delayed Due to Author's 'Illness'

posted on by Karen Ressler

The official Twitter account for the Manga Life Win website's editorial department announced on Friday that the latest chapter of Bkub Ōkawa's Pop Team Epic has been delayed from December 10 to December 13 due to the author's "sudden illness." However, the post referred to the illness in parentheses as "Hawaii."

Ōkawa launched the manga on the Manga Life Win website in 2014, and ended it in 2015. Takeshobo released the manga's first compiled book volume in print in 2015. Ōkawa launched the "second season" in February 2016, and ended it on April 30. Takeshobo released the second volume on June 7. The manga started a "third season" on October 10.

The surreal four-panel manga centers around two 14-year-old girls, the short Popuko and the tall Pipimi.

Vertical will start publishing the manga in English next fall.

The manga is inspiring an anime adaptation. The staff will hold an advance screening in Tokyo on December 12.
