2nd season ended in April; anime debuts in October

The official Twitter account of Takeshobo's Manga Life Win website announced on Monday that Bkub Ōkawa will launch a "third season" of the Pop Team Epic manga on the website on October 10.

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

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 and its characters have since become popular not only in Japan but also overseas.

The manga is inspiring an anime in October.
