Look, I was NEVER one of those whining bitches who moan about how anime has been dying since the end of the 1970s (Real robots? Cancer that’ll kill anime. What shitty thing shall they think of next? Transforming mass-produced military mecha?). Yet, I was so profoundly impressed by all the conceits Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt threw at me. It was unlike any anime I’ve seen, especially recently.
It had the pop-culture referential humor I enjoy so much of (since it rewards wide tastes and viewing experience), and it had very interesting animation. At times its action sequences (episode 6’s long-ass battle) were downright amazing, unmatched (except by a select few) in recent TV anime. I agree that it’s a formal affair, that is, an exercise by Gainax to show off their ability to fuck with the anime form.
I like it so much that I didn’t even mind how it fucked me over with its ending. And now it bends me over and kicks me into a trash compactor with corpses, offal, and genitalia. I can’t help but like it anyway.
Panty shoves a baseball up her cunt. Zombie Panty chews off her own arm, then is shown to half-digest a half-chewed Briefs all the way to poop. Garterbelt films pornographic gay bondage films, and sips semen in a martini glass. Chuck goes through an 8-bit Super Mario stage with tits and cunts in the landscape. Stocking eats a bag of chips made from processed baby penis foreskin harvested via circumcision. Garterbelt plays with his nipple using Panty & Stocking figurines while in the bathtub. Stocking dismembers Panty and wears her blood and guts as a wig.
And when there should’ve been a straight fanservice section, the pole-dance scene with Panty & Stocking in their non-superdeformed character designs, it’s fucked with and cut up into garbage and swept up and disposed of in a sanitary bin.
Also, this OVA is all of 8 minutes long (less if you count the credits).
FUCK YOU GAINAX.
This post is leftover semen from a discussion on exploitation vis-à-vis Rebuild of Evangelion.
Fuck Yeah Panty & Stocking is where you can find images like this:
More exploitation! S-T-U-P-I-D 3x SSSTUPID STUPID STUPID!
