After its obligatory GainaxEnding, the show teased a second season, but director Creator/HiroyukiImaishi left Gainax in 2011 to form Creator/StudioTrigger. The series in has remained in limbo ever since.

In January of 2017, however, Imaishi and other ex-Gainax staff released [[http://imgur.com/a/rFpaa a doujin called "Geek Boy Homecoming"]] that serves as both a sequel and [[spoiler:a connection to ''Anime/SpacePatrolLuluco'']]. Whether or not this hints at something big has yet to be seen.

The show has received two different manga adaptations: ''Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt'', which is written by Studio Gainax and illustrated by Tagro and ''Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt In Manga Strip'', which is written and illustrated by Imaishi Hiroyuki. Interestingly, for Comiket 91, a group of the animators under the name Cemetery Hills made a booklet called ''Geek Boy: Homecoming'', showcasing Brief and his misadventures [[spoiler:just as he finishes collecting all of the lost pieces of Panty]], making it a sort-of sequel to the series.

** Garterbelt. Yes, it's fairly obvious from the get-go, but he becomes this a hundred times more when we find out about his past.

Evil creatures called Ghosts have begun attacking Daten City, a city located on the border of Heaven and Earth. In response, Heaven sends down two [[FallenAngel less-than-heavenly angels]] (who also happen to be sisters) to stop the Ghosts: Panty, an [[LovableSexManiac incredibly promiscuous]] blonde who can turn underwear into guns, and Stocking, a [[ElegantGothicLolita goth girl]] with an [[SweetTooth eternal craving for sweets]] who can turn stockings into swords. Guided by Father Garterbelt, a black priest with a titanic afro and a variety of sexual fetishes, and their dog Chuck, the sisters fight ghosts in incredibly sexy, exciting, and ''[[WidgetSeries just plain old weird]]'' ways.

In other words, what we have here is a typical Creator/StudioGainax anime.

Gainax created 2010's ''Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt'' with a strange ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''-esque style (except for a handful of scenes rendered in a "regular" anime style), and in numerous aspects, it has become the weirdest show Studio Gainax has ''ever'' produced to date. A number of fans consider it [[UpToEleven even weirder than ]] ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' (and that ''really'' says a lot), though others will say it sits on par with the insanity known as ''Anime/DeadLeaves''.

After its obligatory GainaxEnding, the show teased a second season, but at this point, the fate of that season lies in the hands of [[WordOfGod Imaishi]], who left the company in 2011 to form Creator/StudioTrigger, his own company. (Then again, Anno still had a hand in ''Evangelion'' after doing something similar). For the time being, the series is stuck in limbo unless stated otherwise.

Then, on November 25, 2016, [[https://mobile.twitter.com/GAINAX_WEST/status/802074752122654720 Gainax's Kansai branch teased at something new for the series]]. What this is has yet to be confirmed.

Creator/FUNimation licensed the show for North America and released it both on DVD and Blu-ray (though, thanks to rightsholder Kadokawa, the Blu-ray set came out 8 months after the DVD set). You can also watch the show in its entirety over on [[http://www.hulu.com/panty-and-stocking-with-garterbelt Hulu]] or through [[http://www.funimation.com/shows/panty-stocking-with-garterbelt/videos FUNimation]].

The show has been given two different manga adaptations: ''Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt'', which is written by Studio Gainax and illustrated by Tagro and ''Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt In Manga Strip'', which is written and illustrated by Imaishi Hiroyuki.
