Panty. Stocking. And Garterbelt. These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect strippers. But Japan accidentally added an extra ingredient to the concoction: Gainax. Thus Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt was born! Using their ultra sexy powers, Panty, Stocking and Stick the dog have dedicated their lives to eating surgery snacks and having sex with as many men as possible!
Panty and Stocking is everything it says on the tin. You should not be surprised by what appears. Maybe the level at which they went to might throw you off a bit. There has never been an anime more crude, spastic, energetic, vulgar, sexed-up and downright entertaining than this one. They fight a giant shit monster in the first half of the episode. The second half of the episode is made up of a fight that is one giant metaphor for technique in sex being more important than cumming early. It’s mad. Utterly mad.
The crudeness does bug me a bit. Could you use a bit more imagination please? You have a black priest who draws messages from the gods out from his afro. Use him a bit more. Make Panty have some other interests beyond wanting to get boned. There’s not a whole lot wrong with crude humour. It just happens to get old pretty quickly, especially when it’s not done intelligently. OK, the second half giant metaphor was quite amusing because your brain instantly translated everything they said into sex, but even that started to get old.
But that’s my only legitimate complaint. You have no idea how madly entertaining this is. Well you will, when you watch it. The animation is nuts as you try to watch the sound effects flash across the page. There’s lots of little things in there I like. One of my favourite things is how random characters will be going about their daily lives, getting into arguments only for Panty and Stocking caused carnage to interrupt what they’re doing. And the soundtrack. Oh god the soundtrack! The transformation sequence feat. pole dancing strip tease scene. You have no idea how amazing that was. I’ll put up the youtube video (courtesy of Tenka Seiha) just in case you weren’t sure whether you were going to watch this anime yet, but I highly recommend waiting for it to happen in the episode itself. It made my hair stand up on end, and I don’t say that about a strip tease very often.
I need to watch Dead Leaves asap.
