Anyone coming in here expecting high brow entertainment, do a 180 as soon as you finish reading this sentence. This might seriously be the most perverted, puerile and manic thing I've ever seen. It might also just be the most refreshing anime to come out of Japan in [tornado fang]ing ages. For anyone else
curious enough to give this a shot, well, let's run down the basics.
PnSwG tells the story of two angels, Panty & Stocking, sent forth from heaven to rid the world of "ghosts", creatures formed out of human desire and hatred which have appeared in Daten City, a place filled with sin and crime... Or that's what they would have you believe. In actuality, the two angels, Panty and Stocking, got kicked out Invader Zim style by the powers above for their less than stellar actions and personalities. I am not making this up. As for the characters, Panty is a hot blooded, dick loving woman who fights with enchanted panties that turn into a gun and Stocking is a gothic lolita with a mouth that'd make a sailor blush and an affinity for sweets. This. Is. Actually. For. Real.
Seriously, I'm at a lack of words for this one right here. If you still need to be sold though, this animation comes from the same lead animator responsible for inspiring a whole generation to ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWER, Hiroyuki Imaishi. You can expect tons of balls to the wall crazy as [tornado fang], Tatarovsky like animation to go with the zany as [tornado fang], fetishy and BEYOND hilarious writing of each episode. Oh, did I mention that they have transformation sequences involving pole dancing that goes way beyond "well that's different" and somewhere into upper "OMG THEY CAN DO THIS ON TV?!" See for yourself.
That said, thread will now be about how many episodes it will take to get everyone here to laugh uncontrollably. I'm already out of the game just from that linked clip. Discuss away, RPM!
