** Should the series get a second season? Some feel like it was TooGoodToLast and the GainaxEnding shouldn't be taken seriously, while others want the series to actually explain the Gainax Ending and give the series a proper ending. A third camp wants another season but the series to be sold to [[Creator/StudioTrigger Trigger]], where most of the original cast moved to.

* PeripheryDemographic: This show has a rather significant female fanbase, despite it very obviously pandering to guys. [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Even The Girls Want Panty And Stocking]] (and [[EvilIsSexy Scanty and Kneesocks]])? [[{{Adorkable}} Brief]] may have something to with this, too; and maybe [[BadassPreacher Garterbelt]]. Or maybe it's seeing someone do [[WishFulfillment what they wish they could do]]. And Panty's [[WorldOfCardboardSpeech "I'm just a bitch" speech]] ''was'' inspiring.
** Panty and Stocking are seen as good feminist icons by some, because they're both badass without falling into the "we can't portray any females with flaws, lest it be a bad representation of women" cliche, they're badass, they never have to be saved by men, and Panty's obsession with sex is only portrayed as bad because it gets in the way of her work (and because she has terrible taste in men), not because sex ''itself'' is inherently bad. Panty and Stocking are also sisters who worry about each other, and enjoy hanging out with each other.

* CultClassic: Compared to its [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann predecessor]] and [[Anime/KillLaKill successor]], which have become two of the most popular anime of their respective decades, ''Panty & Stocking'' certainly seems underrated. However, its fanbase, however small it may be, is still devoted to it, and is still holding on to the prospect of a second season.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Words cannot describe.
** The manga chapters are ''[[UpToEleven arguably even worse]]''.
* CultClassic: The show never gained the same kind of mainstream popularity as its [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann predecessor]] and [[Anime/KillLaKill successor]], but it's still talked about in many circles to this day.

** As of [[GainaxEnding the last 20 seconds of the show]], [[spoiler:Stocking]] has fallen into this.

* NauseaFuel: In "The Buzz of the Beehive", it's implied that Panty does not know what a condom is. You have to wonder, with as much sex as she has on a daily basis (and her seemingly non-existent standards) that she would be a veritable cesspool of venereal disease... however, according to WordOfGod, "angels don't get fat, grow old or get sick". If the girls don't return to Heaven they'll [[BroughtDownToNormal become humans]] and be unable to maintain their lifestyles without some serious side-effects, which explains their motivations.

to:

* NauseaFuel: MoralEventHorizon: Panty and Stocking do some pretty reprehensible things, like leaving people to die in a zombie apocalypse to save their own skins or [[spoiler:letting Brief awaken an EldritchAbomination because he wasn't attractive at the time]], but the [[spoiler:latter]] definitely crosses it when [[spoiler:she kills Panty in order to reveal her true allegiance]].

* SuperlativeDubbing: The dub is almost unanimously considered to be superior to the subbed version, a rarity among anime fans.



* UncannyValley: "Vomiting Point" features character designs that are... creepy to say the least. They are, of course, interestingly similar to the style of ''Anime/{{Tekkonkinkreet}}''.

* WTFCastingAgency: More WTF Dubbing Company, of all the companies to get the series, no one expected ''Funimantion'' to grab the reigns since this isn't really the type of show they would go for un-ironiclly (''Shin-chan'' was more a GagDub in a effort to sell the series, in Japan it's aimed more toward kids). But come 2011, they shocked many of their fans with the announcement of gaining the license. Some dug it, others had hoped they would bring in more media known [=VAs=] who worked on Western Cartoons like Tara Strong or Tom Kane to go with the western animation vibe the show was going for. But overall it's a pretty solid dub.

* AllAdultAnimationIsSouthPark: Possibly the only example of this trope done, for better or worse, ''on purpose''! Most countries actually consider it [[UpToEleven even more adult than South Park itself]].
