    Popuko 

Popuko

Voiced by: See below

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ahyou_are_motherfucker.jpg
A 14-year-old girl who is short. She tends to get angry very easily.

    Pipimi 

Pipimi

Voiced by: See below

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cool_time.jpg
A 14-year-old girl who is tall. She's generally calmer than her friend, Popuko.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Has black hair in the the series' Line stickers instead of the dark blue it is in the manga and anime.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Despite being the nicer of the two, Pipimi's still rather dangerous. While purchasing a car, she considered the various features' applications when it came to assassination and murder, and once she gave Popuko an advance payment, a list, a gun, and a stressed command of "Do it."
  • Curtains Match the Window: Downplayed, since she has dark blue hair and light blue eyes.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Implied to be the reason why she tends to zone out and think of Hellshake Yano during conversations.
  • Fangirl: Of Hellshake Yano, going by certain illustrations. He's the only offshoot character she brings up on a regular basis.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: She has dark blue hair in the manga and anime, but the the series' Line stickers instead makes her hair black.
  • Hair Decorations: She never takes off her huge red bow.
  • Hime Cut: Downplayed. She has blunt bangs, armpit length sidelocks, and mid-back length hair, but while she's generally a lot calmer than Popuko, she can still be just as foul-mouthed and violent.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: At least in comparison to Popuko, though most of her height seems to come from her neck.
  • Not So Stoic: Occasionally acts stern and direct towards others.
  • The Stoic: Is generally unaffected by anything that occurs to her.
  • The Straight Man: Often plays this role to Popuko's antics.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has dark blue hair in covers of the manga and the anime. Averted in the the series' Line stickers, where her hair is black instead.

Others

    Bacon Mushamucha-kun 

Bacon Mushamusha-kun

Voiced by: Rie Hikisaka (Part A) / Katsuyuki Konishi (Part B)
A sentient piece of bacon.

    Hellshake Yano 

Hellshake Yano

A popular rocker Pipimi daydreamed about once.
  • Adaptation Expansion: In his corresponding POP TEAM STORY, he gains an entire backstory; the reason he's even called "Hellshake" Yano and the circumstances launching him into the public eye have much more elaboration here.
  • Bishie Sparkle: A lot of official images give him this.
  • Epic Rocking: To stall until his band got to the concert hall, Yano shreds for a solo, captivating the audience even as his guitar strings break one by one.
  • In-Series Nickname: Of course, nobody would expect to name their child "Hellshake". This nickname comes from his manager calling his solo one that "shakes the foundations of Hell itself".

    Shouta Aoi 

Shouta Aoi

Portrayed by: Himself

A time traveling male idol that comes to the aid of Popuko and Pipimi whenever something goes wrong.
  • Chroma Key: He's green-screened so he stands out as a real human being among the animated (sometimes) Popuko and Pipimi.
  • Roger Rabbit Effect: He's portrayed in live action while everything else is animated.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: His main role is to travel back in time and fix whatever went wrong at the end of the episode. The second airing of the episode will show the results.

Voice Actors

    Main cast 
Because the anime is just as nonsensical as the original yonkoma, there is no regular cast. Instead, new people voice Popuko and Pipimi for each episode and each immediate reairing of that same episode, and the voice actors always have a history of working with each other.
