Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt PV

September 8, 2010


The previous sentence is enough to describe my feelings about this PV. Of course, “what the f**k did I just watch?” works just as well. Either way, this strange combination of Powerpuff Girls, GIR from Invader Zim, and Gainax is more than enough reason for the first episode to find its way into my library.

Mindf**kery aside, hit the jump for more information about this series.

Panty & Stocking info from NewType

26 episodes long… except they’re 12 minute episodes. The show will be aired as 13 blocks of 24 minutes with 2 episodes each. Staff and summaries for the first four episodes, aka: the first two blocks:

It’s an anime slated for Fall season, so it should be airing in about a month or so. Runtime will be a single cour, with each of the 12 episode timeslots running two half-episodes, similar to American animations.

Now if you excuse me, I need to go figure out what the hell I just saw. I’m also wondering why I have censorship standards on this site. Who knows.
