Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
FLY AWAY NOW FLY AWAY NOW FLY AWAAAY~!
Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt is an anime show that either one loves in the highest order, or one loathes with the sharpest flames. Much like Gurren Lagann, Panty & Stocking is absurdity but taken to the highest level. To give a short summary of the style of art and writing, imagine the Powerpuff Girls if they were sex-starved and cocaine fueled, mixed with many of Japan's idiosyncrasies. For an accurate description, just watch the first episode
The story for Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt is that two sister angels, Panty Anarchy and Stocking Anarchy, are sent banished from heaven into Daten City. There, a black priest with an afro keeps watch over them in a church while Panty and Stocking fight ghosts until they are considered redeemed by heaven. Later episodes have Panty and Stocking facing after two demon sisters named Scanty and Kneesocks.
The Great Gainax Christmas Trolling
Since it's premiere, the show has stormed /a/ where many threads over Panty & Stocking were made, catching the interest of anonymous with its surprisingly thorough references to western animation and English, offbeat lead characters, and often crude humor.
Originally, Panty & Stocking was going to be a one season deal. But due to the extreme success the show found, a second season was announced to be produced. Having originally only written a one season show, the writers needed to find a way to give life to a second season. The most infamous posts were over the final episode, with anonymous suggestion it's bizzare ending was either a deliberate troll and/or intentional self-parody of Gainax's reputation for such endings.
The origins begin with the end of Gurren Lagann. After the completion of Gurren Lagann, the project director of Gurren Lagann, named Hiroyuki Imaishi, took the staff on vacation. There, the entire staff got very drunk and began throwing out random ideas. These ideas were compiled into Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt.
The second season is being produced and is set to premier eventually.
