Gainax is making some weird ass shit this season. But fortunately its actually some very nice weird ass shit, and so obviously meant to be put on Cartoon Network at 1 a.m. This show is perhaps The kind of show that comes out when you remove all the ethical blocks and stoppers from a cartoon and just go all out toilet funny.
My first impression of this show is that its Jaded Powerpuff Girls dubbed in Japanese. Panty is a proud slut and Stocking is a gothloli that chews sweets up like food processor.
And the boss/priest/heroine manager, Garterbelt. Not sure why Garterbelt but I'm not sure I want to find out either. Just Panty and Stocking is enough for me.
One of the very interesting things of note is that the show is very Dexter's Lab, and a lot of sound effects come out in latin characters instead of katakana, which makes it seem all the more geared towards English speakers.
And the chase scenes are full of over the top millions-of-police-cars-swarming-the-villain-type action, and an impractically numerous number of bullets flying all over the place but futile in the face of the villains' supernatural nature.
But true to all anime, Gainax added a few seconds of the signature moe style to the heroines and I must say these are awesome babes.
I like Stocking more. Her hair dye layers just drive me nuts.
And I just love how they are portrayed as poledancers who are going to save Daten City. Seems like this Daten City is actually purgatory.
Gainax is definitely showing themselves to be masters of all genres, doing an awesomely cute and innocent Hanamaru last season to this incredibly adult and toilet show, I can't wait to see what they have in store next season, or for the short term, in the rest of this show.
