[1st episode]Panty and Stockings with Garterbelt

Ok, please don't comment on my choices, it's not the first time and probably not the last that I'll feel somewhat embarassed about some of my anime choices but since I'm strong and brave and smart (dixit über popular fic writer Lovely Smut Princess, YES she said that and yeah indeed it's a codename) you have the right to know every little bit of my anime dark side.

Today's victim of the "1st episode" serie iiiisss Panty and Stockings with Garterbelt!
Summary is easy, two angels, Panty and Stockings, descended on Earth to defeat the evil Ghosts. To do that they're helped by the priest Garterbelt.

I think I liked it. I think.
Actually it's pretty weird for a japanese anime, it reminds me of my childhood, but it's not a bad thing.
Except it totally ruins any childhood memory the very second Panty appears XD
So yeah, as expected it's perverted, and apparently they were close to cancellation for the second episode, which makes me want to watch it even more. Normal.

On the anime itself, well it's not something overly awesome, it's fun and perverted, the story is not at all original.
BUT (because there's a but) take it as an ultimate parody of everything and it becomes much more interesting.
The art for example : parody of american animation.
The wonderful "transformation" scene : parody of magical girls animes
Their weapons : parody of any action anime out there.
See, a bit of thinking and it becomes interesting on top of being funny.

Overall impression : Yeah why not, seems fun.
Original reason why I watched : THE TITLE! (and this is how you end up watching crazy things)

  1. This anime is actually pretty epic, some parts even comparing to FLCL.
