An hilarious and raunchy anime.
on 7 July 2012
Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt has got to be my favourite anime. The show is about two angels who got kicked out of heaven for bad behaviour. The only way to return is to collect Heaven coins, which can only be accumulated by killing Ghosts.
It's an hilarious, vulgar, bizarre and overall enjoyable show. It has a great stylized look mimicking American cartoons, which makes the show more enjoyable with the mixed styles. The mix of styles make for a fresh and unique anime.
The humor is very vulgar, similar to the humor of Drawn Together, which was an influence for the show. The show also has one of the best soundtracks I have heard, which consist of Electronic and Dance songs.
I was excited to hear a English DVD realise of this show for the UK. The DVD features two languages, a English Dub which from looking at previews, looks to be done really well and the original Japanese Dub. I think most fans are going to prefer the Japanese as opposed to the English as it features some great voices that stand out. The Japanese Dub will have some English speaking parts which make it even more hilarious. The DVD doesn't seem to include anything new feature apart from Outtakes. The special disc includes a collection of the 'Ghost' explosions (which is a re-occurring feature in the show) the OVA's (Mini-shorts) and textless opening and closing songs.
I'd recommend this show to fans who like 'adult' cartoons such as Drawn Together or South Park who like rude and ridiculous jokes.
