Teppen—!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Laughing ’til you Cry cancels 2nd episode

Teppen Laughing til you Cry

The second episode of Teppen—!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Laughing ’til you Cry has been officially canceled due to “some circumstances” and it’s unknown when or if it will ever be shown. These circumstances likely refer to the recent assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Teppen—!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Laughing ’til you Cry follows two girls who want to be comedians going to school in Osaka’s entertainment district. After putting on a show and winning a contest at a local shopping center, the two set their sights even higher. With such a plain premise, it’s difficult at first to see where an issue could arise in the show’s second episode.

Due to some circumstances, the second episode of the TV animation “Topeki !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Due to various reasons, the broadcast of the second episode will be cancelled and the first episode will be re-broadcast.

Episode 3 will be aired sequentially from 7/16 (Sat.).

Thank you for your understanding.

A cached synopsis of the second episode however makes it clear that airing the episode now would be in poor taste given recent events. The plot of the second episode involves our comedic duo finding a tablet, and on the back is a threat written in Katakana. Read normally, it appears to be a threat against the “president”. While we can speculate what the overall punchline of the episode could have been, regardless it would be in poor taste to release it now.
