Players gather Takeshobo employees to defeat Popuko, Pipimi

Solid Sphere released its Takeshobo Quest ~Kyōshū Poputepipikku~ (Takeshobo Quest ~Attack Pop Team Epic~) smartphone "game" on Wednesday. The game is based on Bkub Okawa's Pop Team Epic manga.

The game is free to play, but has in-game purchases. In the game, players gather together Takeshobo employees and aim to defeat Popuko and Pipimi. Players acquire employees by rolling gacha. The game's website describes the game as a "crappy game," and offers free 10,000 rolls for first-time players.

The original manga centers around two 14-year-old girls, the short Popuko and the tall Pipimi. The manga's television anime series premiered on January 6. HIDIVE, Funimation, Crunchyroll, AsianCrush, and Amazon Prime Video all streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Adult Swim's Toonami block began airing Pop Team Epic beginning the night of June 30. The anime will get a television special on April 1, 2019.
