The Voices of Pop Team Epic

Pop Team Epic may be one of the weirdest shows around, but there's one thing you can count on... you won't know who will voice the main cast next!

The series has established a routine of getting different voice actors to voice the two main characters, the short and angry Popuko, and the tall and calm Pipimi. Usually, the first half of the show will feature a female cast, while the second half, a near identical repeat of the first half, will star a male cast.

With such a large pool of talent lending their acting chops to the series, we thought now would be a good time to look at just who has voiced those adorable girls! These are just some of the characters these talented voice actors have brought to life, so let us know your favourite role of theirs!

Remember to check back as we update it with new episodes!

Plus, don’t forget to check out the English dub cast to see who else has helped voice the craziness!
