Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
The anime focuses on two sisters Panty and Stocking. Having misbehaved in Heaven (of all places) the sisters were propelled to earth. They were set to Daten City which is located on the border between Heaven and Hell. They battle evil spirits that are called “Ghosts”. They’re under the watchful eye of a reverend called Garterbelt. The sisters primary goal is to collect enough coins to buy their way back into Heaven. The sisters have the uncanny ability to transform their lingerie into weapons. Panty’s panties changes into a pistol called Backlace. Whereas, Stocking’s stocking transforms into katana’s called Stripe 1 and Stripe 2.
Not for Children
“Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt” is NOT FOR THE CHILDREN. Foul language. Sex (though not explicit). Sexual innuendo. Violence. Crude Humor.On its surface it looks like a children’s anime but it clearly isn’t. Panty is addicted to sex and has the lofty goal of having sex with 1000 men before she returns to Heaven. Stocking seems to be less sexual and her addiction seems to be of the sugar variety. P&SG reminded me of the Power Puff Girls (although the adult version). The animation is impressive and the cartoon like character designs are a perfect counter to the adult content. Overall this anime isn’t for everyone. I managed to get over the crude behavior pretty quickly but some may not. Sometimes crude language and content for the sake of crudeness can sometime get boring and predictable. I don’t think this is a top tier anime (think Attack on Titan) but enjoyable none the less. I recommend it, just not for anyone under 18.
