Panty and Stocking ends

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt

Amazing opening lines, Gainax. Stay classy there.

Oh fuck yeah, Stocking’s back. And looking pretty damn bad ass to go with it too.

A giant drill made out of countless pairs of panties ans stockings? Only Gainax.

I am going to miss this.

Gainax till the end.

Holy crap. Gainax sure redefines “foot” job” with that.

So now that the Hell’smonkey got resealed and the big bad defeated. It’s time for some R&R for our heroes and heroines…

Uh.. what? Stocking?

Oh. Wow. Evil bitch demon Stocking?! I am…. okay with this.

LAWL. “Brief and Chuck with Garterbelt”? Doesn’t really have the same ring to it.

Second season, guys. FUND IT!

So okay, PSG ending was pretty crazy within expectations of being Gainax. Deflowering angels, mid-air sex, giant boner Ghosts, drills made out of panties and stockings, lower body half of a woman wearing panties and stockings descending from the sky, you’ve got it all here. Plus that little bit of epilogue at the end there and the “next season” announcement to cap everything off. Yup, Gainax staying classy here.

Still, doesn’t dislodge Milky Holmes’ ending from it spot. I am glad I didn’t have to recall that.

Well, as for the whole show itself, it was definitely an interesting experiment by Gainax. Using American-style animation, non-stereotype heroines, the short format, parodies, and techno-mix music, it certainly was a great aesthetic experiment.

Sadly enough, the content itself generally fell flat for me aside from a few gems. I’ll admit a lot of the “parody” episodes just flew over my head. The general lack of the heroine’s development outside of their predefined roles bored me as well too, but I did still watch it just to see if Gainax would do better than that.

In the end, PSG was a fun experiment, but it got bogged down by a lack of direction (until the last two episodes), general unfunny-ness and obnoxious heroines. Still, it did have a few great moments of it’s own and the music was amazingly good. We’ll see if the second season actually happens or it’s just Gainax doing it a parody as well.

Liked: Certain parts.
Rewatch: No.

    NOO… Why you have to do it Gainax!?

    Seriously, if next season ended the same as this episode, I’ll cringe and rage over it!

    Seems like it’s meant to just parody cliffhanger endings. Read somewhere that the director doesn’t plan on there being a second season.

    I’m glad I skipped this show after the 2nd ep.

    Despite the shittiness of this whole shit, it will be one of the most talk about anime show in the future. Marketing strategy works.

    @kluxorious
    I know, especially the end with Panty dead was only a marketing trick to shock fans and make them to talk about it on 2ch :) But in the end the disks’ sales will have the final “word” and with killing Panty they pissed off 50% of the fanbase.

    I thought it was a pretty clear parody of post-credits scenes in general. I wouldn’t be surprised if they have no intention of making a second season.

    Well played GAINAX, well played.
    I just give up, this weird thing was awesome.

    We need an spin off with Scanty and Kneesocks as the main characters.
