Brief will end up in a threesome with Panty and Stocking....and the whole world will be insanely jealous that he gets BOTH of the hottest girls on earth.
Panty and Stocking take place in the world of Madoka MagicaOr, at least, the "reset" world with Goddess Madoka. In their previous lives, they were Puella Magi who either died or became witches (some of their deaths are shown in the end credits). Ghosts are another name for Demons and the so-called "Demons" are Puella Magi who, upon the verge of death, rejected Madoka's gift.
The Demon Stocking... isn't really Stocking. I mean, come on. It doesn't add up with anything previous, specifically Ghost: Phantom of Daten City. Obviously, it was a fake sent from Hell to catch Panty while her guard was down. Real Stocking is in Heaven still.
The second season will be titled ''Panty VS Stocking with Garterbelt"
Future Episodes will Parody:
Brief and Panty will have a Big Damn Kiss at some point in the show.Because it just makes sense.
(Jossed) The Mayor of Daten City is Satan.Makes perfect sense, according to Episode 6. Plus, that would explain all the Ghosts appearing only in Daten City (with Little Tokyo as an exception).
(Jossed) Brief will have a Face-Heel TurnScanty and Kneesocks will attempt to get him to go to turn him to the dark side. Besides the obvious benefits, It would also be a good way to give Panty a Heroic BSOD, and some Character Development into less of a bitch. Hopefully, if it does happen, It won't end the way it usually does.
Kamina and Simon are Panty and Stocking's DescendantsAnd the anti-spiral is a Ghost, in fact.
Brief will get a Transformation SequenceMore obvious reasons being Rule of Funny and possible female-oriented Fanservice, but this troper can't help but feel like he'll be important to the plot later on.
Related to the above, Brief is actually a fallen angel with amnesia.It explains his name fitting in with the other angels. The only thing he can remember is that he needs to hunt down Ghosts, which is why he's such an occult freak. Although he's been Brought Down to Normal, he still has some residual power left in him, judging from his shotgun. Alternatively, he was Panty's former lover in Heaven, and neither of them remember it. After all, it would be great fuel for some Cerebus Syndrome, don't you think?
Chuck is a fallen angel, too, and See Through is his... weapon
(Jossed) The sixth episode was a Red Herring.
All the people are dead in Daten City.
There is a reason Panty and Stocking remain angels.Simply put, they were good girls while they were still alive. After being "angelized" after death and realizing they can no longer really be punished for sinning, they decide to play it for all its worth. Which is why Panty doesn't get STDs from all the sex she has and Stocking doesn't get fat from eating all those cakes: they have credit from their lives as paragons of chastity and temperance. On the other side, Scanty and Kneesocks were whorebisquits in every possible way, which is why they are now demons.
(up to discussion) The series will end in a normal way.To troll the people expecting a Gainax Ending
In a coming episode, they will parody the mecha genre
Panty and Stocking are... bi.
(Jossed) Garterbelt is an angel.He's gay, and therefore was exiled from Heaven. He directs Panty and Stocking instead of collecting Heaven Coins so that he doesn't go to Hell.
1 Angry Ghost is the Japanese perception of the American perception of Japanese game shows.Either that or it's the Japanese perception of an American version of an authentic Japanese game show that is taking place in America.
Brief won't end up with Panty, but instead Stocking.Considering it's shown that Panty would never be all that interested in Brief, and Episode 9 shows that Stocking doesn't seem to mind appearance (she fell in love with a ghost, so), it would be an interesting curveball.
The ending will be a parody of The End of Evangelion.EVERYONE'S HUGGED AND TURNS INTO
(Jossed) During the finale, both Panty and Stocking will become human during the course of the final battle and one of them will die and be unable to become an angel again while the other returns to her angelic formIt has been stated much earlier that Panty and Stocking are both gradually becoming human, so this could end up becoming a sort of plot point in the finale. They currently can't die, but if they become human and one of them dies, what exactly would happen?
(Confirmed) There will be a new character called CorsetThe preview for the OST has a track called "Corset Theme" and Scanty and Kneesocks theme is called... "Theme for Scanty & Kneesocks"... Put the two together and yeah. Who knows, maybe it'll be like a final boss or something.
Fastener (Chuck's evil other) is a girl
Basing in a WMG from above, an episode will give us Actor Allusions and Shout Outs to a certain Sunrise's anime.Brief will end up piloting by accident a Transforming Mecha and will gain/reveal a Jerkass and mean alternate personality that will lead to a lot of events that will make Panty begin to have feelings towards Brief.
Jesus had something to do with Garterbelt's sexuality and vocation.A bit of a stretch, but if Garterbelt lived through history it stands to reason that he met the biblical Messiah along the way. Garterbert was either so touched (metaphorically speaking) by his savior's love and mercy that he developed a crush on him, or he was gay all along and was merely angry and rebellious our of fear of being persecuted for his sexual orientation (his prostitutes were his beards),with Jesus' acceptance giving him the courage to come out of the closet. If the above is true, the Son Of Man's martyrdom probably hit Garterbelt pretty hard/inspired him to make sure that his shepherd's word would not die with his mortal body and devoted much of his immortality to spreading the Good Teachings in honor of that great man.
(Jossed) There will be no CorsetWe're being trolled by the soundtrack preview
(Jossed) Corset is someone that Panty and Stocking knew when they were human
(Jossed) Corset is a Parody SueShe's Panty and Stockings lost sister. She was too perfect for Heaven, so they sent her to Daten City.
(Jossed) Corset is......Brief, an angel in a male disguise who hides her breasts with a type of corset. She was sent to look after them and to leave no suspicions, she disguises herself as a high school boy.
Scanty and Kneesocks are really Ascended Demons.Going by the logic that Panty and Stocking got kicked out of heaven for being too chaotic (and of course assuming that demonkind is Always Chaotic Evil), Scanty and Kneesocks got kicked out of hell for being too lawful. Their mission of causing Daten City to be overrun by Ghosts is to prove that they're really evil enough to return to hell, even in spite of being a sucker for RRRRUUURRRUU.
(Semi-Confirmed) Corset's weapon will be a BFS
Nozomu is a ghost who is the embodiement of all of the despair in the world.
(Semi-Confirmed) Sex is the source of Panty's powerPanty has the opposite of Virgin Power. She needs sex with men to stay an angel and becomes powerless when she is denied sex for too long (In corollary this would imply that Stocking's power come from eating sweets).
Garterbelt's mission was to protect the keyRemember the picture of a key that god gave to Garterbelt everytime he refused to accept his mission? his mission was to find and protect the key. In Highschool Nudical he wasn't trying to saw naked boys, he tried to find the key, because as we see, the key is a boy's dick, when Panty defeated the ghost with Brief's underwear, Garter discovered that Brief was/have the key. In Inner Brief he was watching closely to check that Brief was, in fact, the key. AND WE THOUGHT THAT HE WAS GAY!...wait a minute, and the end of Catfight Club?...
(Confirmed) Stocking will return for the finale.Which will most likely be Episode 13. As Panty can't really do anything without her angel powers (Although she might retain some Badass Normal traits if she gets out of BSOD mode early enough,) Stocking will probably return, saying something along the lines of "I knew you couldn't do anything without me." The result of this combined with fighting the Daemon sisters and Corset will probably blow our heads off.
"Sex and the Daten City" was set prior to the beginning of the series.Let's connect the dots. After Panty finds out about a copy of her porno being in the net, she decides to exile herself from the world and takes Stocking and Chuck along. They go through all the dangerous situations portrayed in "Fallen Angel" until they can't take it anymore and die. God sends them to Heaven, hoping for them to change their behaviour while there. However, after a few days He notices that they haven't changed at all, thus He kicks them out of Heaven, and the rest is history.
Maybe this one is obvious, but I'll say it anyway: Corset's corset suppresses his powers.Long ago, he battled Garterbelt (And perhaps God as well), the fight ending with the Corset being put on him. Take it off, and he'll go full-blown Satan.
(Mostly Jossed) The Finale will be filled to the gills with twists.Somehow, everything listed is going to happen.
(Mostly Confirmed) Many episodes have been foreshadowing the events leading up to the final two episodes that are not noticeable until Episode 12 is watched.
(Jossed) Daten City was founded by fallen angels, and the wealthy class is descended from them.Brief's family (aka The Rock foundation) is a good example of this type of thing. In addition to his shotgun being an Unusual Euphemism for a certain something, it serves as a weapon for him, like panty's panties or stocking's stockings. However, either he can't use it because he's part human, or at this point he doesn't know how.
Just like Panty and Stocking, Brief will have an evil counterpart, tooI name him Boxer.
The pair of panties Panty auctioned off during "The Stripping" are a literal Chekhov's Gun.Considering how Backlace disintegrated at the end of Episode 12, Panty's gonna need an extra pair somewhere. Hopefully Brief either has it on his person or he left it at the cabin.
Stocking will be seen together in Heaven with the Ghost she fell in love with in Episode 9.That may be pushing the envelope, but still...
(Confirmed) Panty will say Brief's name.Extra points will go out if his death is imminent/apparent as it happens.
(Subjective, but mostly Confirmed) The final battle will have an amazing animation
Scanty and Kneesocks aren't really Corset's daughters.The whole thing is probably just to keep up appearances in public. Not that it changes anything...
While the visuals of the Ending theme show Panty and Stocking's backstory, the lyrics of the song are from Panty's perspective on the events of episode 12."So close" could refer to Stocking getting to go to Heaven without her, there being no place to hide could mean no more powers and trying to escape from the Demon sisters ... and "it's you I love so dearly" referring to Brief ...
Gainax will made Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt: Panty-Hen/Stocking-hen
(Confirmed) The last episode will be a Sequel Hook for the second season.Similar to the above, sort of. A: It'll allow for less of a constriction on animation, B: It'll please the fans greatly, C: Gainax can make more money off the series, and D: Panty. and. Brief.
There will be a spinoff called "Scanty and Kneesocks with Corset."Because everyone wants it. They want it bad. And of course they want it with more kinky foodsex and Fetish Fuel taken Up to Eleven.
Stocking will hook up with Corset.Think about it: Corset really enjoyed seeing Stocking being tied up during Scanty and Kneesocks's raport. Stocking is Too Kinky to Torture and likes... well, specific kind of men. Seems they would make quiet a good couple.
Corset will be voiced by Tim Curry in the English dub.Evil, wears a corset, camp, creepy smile? Check, check, check, aaaaand check.
(Jossed) Panty won't get Backlace back.She'll have to defeat Corset with The Power of Love.
(Jossed) Corset will cross the Bishonen Line.Come on, he has a Transformation Sequence theme. Don't you think this is the perfect time for Gainax to milk some more fanservice out of this series? If he doesn't cross it, then they'll probably swing right to Fan Disservice to screw with the fans even further.
(Jossed) Samuel L Jackson will voice Garterbelt in the English Dub
(Jossed) The extra episode will feature Panty and Stocking before they got kicked out of Heaven.Word of God has confirmed they're making an extra episode to be released exclusively with the final DVD and Blu-ray set to make up for the Recap Episode that is "D.C. Confidential". That being said, a prequel would probably work well.
The next season will explain Chuck's origin and what the hell is Brief's KeyThat if it isn't somekind of joke from gainax.
Stocking was lying - she isn't really a demon. This troper isn't sure what, but suspects that there's definitely more to this.
Stocking fall in love with corset in a point between D.C. Confidential and her return to heaven
The extra episode will be the "next season"
God it's not only panty and stocking mother, but also Jubileus
The next season will be Darker and Edgier
The Demon Sisters will team up with Garterbelt and Brief in the second season and become the new main characters.
The twist ending can be disregarded entirely.
If Panty gets put back together, she might act a little nicer to BriefBut only for about 5 seconds, as Brief is the Butt Monkey.
Oten City is a total Crapsaccharine WorldIf I'm not a total failure at Japanese, then it's a pun on angel. It'll probably be full of Lawful Good people, prideful people and religious fanatics, prompting Brief to put his wealthy background to good use. Of course, we might not know until much, much later, as he still has to deal with Panty's predicament.
Stocking will have a Heel-Face Turn back to Panty and Brief's sideShe'll switch sides halfway through and bring all of Panty's leftover pieces with her. When they revive her, though, She'll have a bone to pick with Stocking. Brief will attempt to seperate them, and of course, will receive all the damage.
Should a season 2 happen, the first thing Panty will do when she revives is shoot or punch Stocking in the face
Corset would have been completely destroyed if the Panty-Stocking-Garterbelt Giga Drill actually hitThe shot to the sky did not summon Panty and Stocking's mother. The only reason their mother came down was because if there wasn't a real divine intervention soon, everyone would be screwed.
God planned everything in order to eliminate CorsetHere is my guess: Stocking is a demon, but she acted too nicely in Hell and was kicked out. God then found Stocking and took her in, knowing that having a demon on her/his side would help destroy Corset. God also needed someone to accompany Stocking so he/she took Panty, a single child, and hypnotized her into believing Stocking was her sister. They were then sent to Earth on the assumption that they were kicked out, but God and Stocking knew that wasn't the case. The season finale is mainly Stocking acting out on the plan to eliminate Corset using Brief and the Oten City Hellgate, while cutting apart Panty was in order to give Brief a motivation to actually proceed towards their target. Garterbelt knew nothing of this plan, and the reason Stocking was sent to Heaven in episode 12 is to have a strategy meeting with God.
Stocking is BernkastelFirst of all, the two look so similar that there's plenty of pictures of Bernkastel styled like Stocking. Stocking's 'promo' outfit also bares more than a passing resemblance to Bernkastel's usual outfit. They also seem to share the same BDSM kink. And their face-heels both come at the very end of the episode they face-heel in.
Halfway through the second season, the series will have a Time SkipEither as a reference to gurren lagann, to see what life would be like after hell is opened again, to show off new character designs, or just for the lulz.
Another fallen angel will appear in the second season to aid Brief and Chuck.She may possibly be to Oten City what Panty and Stocking were to Daten City.
Corset will take over Stocking's body.He certainly can't do much with what he has right now. And of course, having the body of someone who can use angelic weapons would be a great benefit if he ever has to fight Scanty and Kneesocks.
Pantydidn't get cut up at all. In the first few minutes of the second season she'll walk up to the stunned Brief, Garterbelt and Chuck in her usual "Heyy, what's up" manner. (The ending of that SpongeBob SquarePants episode where he had to go to prom with Pearl and it was a dummy all along comes to mind.)
Scanty and Kneesocks's last name is Anarchy.Anarchy as last name makes sense if they are children of angel and a demon, because of they have traits of both. Scanty and Kneesocks, by chance, or by choice were born as angels, while Panty and Stocking as demons.
Angels and demons are actually the same species.The "angel" phenotype is the expression of a genotype with dominant allele (homogeneous dominant "AA" and heterozygous "Aa"), while the "demon" phenotype is from a recessive genotype (homogeneous recessive "aa"). This is why Panty can be an angel while Stocking is a demon.
Stocking is a demon.Panty and Stocking are fallen angels correct? While not all fallen angels are demons, some did become them, so yeah.
Stocking is a demon after all, but she hasn't always been.She did a Face-Heel Turn after being accepted into Heaven. There just weren't enough sweets up there.
If there is a season 2, the first episode will have Panty and Stocking fighting another ghostAnd won't remember episodes 12-13 ever happening. The rest of the cast will obviously bug them about it.
The ghost 'attacking' Panty and Stocking in the ending is ChuckIt resembles his One-Winged Angel form no? And His normal self suddenly shows up in the next shot.
Garterbelt and Corset were once loversBecause...um...why not.
Stocking made a Faustian deal out of sisterly love.This Troper posits this: Stocking gets into heaven at the beginning of episode 12, but finds heaven to be not worthwhile because her sister isn't there. When she sees Panty get into major trouble further in the episode, she petitions God or whoever is in charge to let her go back, but is told "no" for whatever reason. The series already established that Stocking considers some things worth hell (that Ghost she fell in love with), so she commits the ultimate sin - bargaining with the devil (or a suitable stand-in, if Corset is indeed Satan). She leaves heaven for committing this sin and gets the power and ability to bail Panty out, but some time between her Big Damn Heroes return and the end of episode 13, her part of the deal was completed - she turns evil. Further, it is possible that Stocking knew that she would turn, which is why she seemed to be in a hurry to finish the job once she came back for the final battle (i.e., rapidly typing away on her cell phone ordering stuff on Garterbelt's credit card) - she wanted to both finish the job she sold her soul for as soon as possible and give Panty and the others as much help as possible to either turn her back or finish her off if she is beyond redemption, before her good side is no longer in a position to help. It may also explain why she neglects to tell anyone else about it. This Troper will admit that this WMG is at least partly because he is too heartbroken to take the ending at face value. Additonal edit from OP: perhaps the devil Stocking made a deal with was Corset (knowingly or unknowingly), which is how Corset was able to live to the post-credits backstab (or should that be headstab?). If Stocking didn't know it was Corset (or an agent of his) she was dealing with, Corset could have hidden in Brief's junk until Stocking was satisfied she got what she wanted out of the deal ("defeating" Corset and saving Panty). If Stocking did know, then perhaps all she wanted was to pull Panty out of immediate danger.
Stocking's Face-Heel Turn was a ploy to get a second seasonShe knew that her days of eating sweets all the time were coming to an end, so she quickly made a fake deal with Corset in order for everyone to continue on with the series.
The Ending of "... Of The Dead" pulled a literal Status Quo Is GodMakes sense since God isn't going to just let them stop their heavenly duties Zombie Apocalypse or otherwise, and if episode 12 and 13 is any indication he isn't very pleased with their progress, particularly Stocking but that's another WMG.
Scanty and Kneesocks will have a Heel-Face TurnAfter the events of the ending, the two can be seen behind the church, dumbfounded as Corset marches off without them. At this point, they will decide to join Garterbelt to stop the insane Corset. They might still be heavily obsessed with RRRRRRRRRRULES, but at this point, anything can happen.
Scanty and Kneesocks will stay evil.Because even if they turn good, they'll no longer be interesting. If anything, they might either try to catch up with Corset and Stocking (and possibly form a Terrible Trio with the latter), disappear entirely from the story, or stay at Daten City and take over it, turning it into a city filled to the brim with RRRRRRURRRRRRRU.
Gainax is performing a Xanatos Gambit with the second season.Gainax knew damn well that the original concept for the show was, more than likely, going to get less than a full season. However, due to previous Viral Marketing, they also knew that they could throw in anything (Yes, anything. Why are you reading the WMG for this show if you don't realize this by now?) and cause half the internet to spaz out. So, naturally, the rewrote the last episode to include one hell of a cliffhanger. The result? An explosion of speculation as to what the next season will contain. True, it's a bold move for a show that might not get renewed, but at the end, you get two outcomes. The first, they get the second season. The second, the show gets cancelled and the entire fanbase got trolled. Either way, Gainax is having fun.
Pantywill simply come back, as seen in the Ed. Brief doesn't know that.]] The ED shows an inverse of Little Nicky: Panty and Stocking die, ascend to Heaven... then take off their Halos and wink. This is canon. Panty will appear near the start of the second season premier, but not before Brief ends up in Oten City. Stocking is working under the (probably correct} assumption that Brief doesn't know what happens when an angel dies.
No, Panty, you ARE the demonsStocking is a demon alright, and Panty is one as well. Think about it; was is a Demon but a Fallen Angel?
There will be a period ghost.Honestly, would you be surprised at this point?
There will be an acne ghost.
The second season will be called "Panty vs. Stocking."
The fact that Stocking stuffs her face so much forshadows that she's actually a huge Ghost.Or, the possibly fake Stocking is a huge Ghost. Look at the pic on Gainax's website!
If there's indeed a second season, they'll cover the bases they still didn't cover.Like mecha genre, team-bound super sentai (think Power Rangers), soap opera, and the cartoon they kept being compared to despite not being too similar, Powerpuff Girls.
The next season will be with 26 full-lenght episodesMaybe there will be some episodes with two chapters in one, but the rest will be like episode 6.
Corset will kill Stocking and use her soul to create the ultimate ghostit's what i conclude from the poster...
Honekoneko is behind everything.Think about it, that thing is always with Stocking and yet we've seen nothing important from it thus far. It's after revenge on Stocking for destroying it back in the episode Sex And The Daten City. It teamed up with Corset and in the very last seconds after the girls defeated him, it brainwashed Stocking into slicing up Panty and joining Corset.
The angel in Oten city will be....Put your WMG here. I'm betting on it being an Ambiguous Gender Bow and arrow user.
Brief actually encompases the Seven Heavenly Virtues... In all wrong waysSeriously, looking at the Seven Heavenly Virtues page, Breif actually encompases almost all of them, in interestingly roundabout ways:
The next season...:
In the next season Brief will... :
Panty regained her angel powers in episode 13 because she had sex for the right reason.What struck me about the Panty/Brief sex scenes in episode 12 and 13 was the difference in Panty's motives. In episode 12, she's frustrated due to constantly being cockblocked by Garterbelt, getting beaten up by Scanty and Kneesocks, getting rescued by Brief of all people, getting stranded in the middle of nowhere with Brief etc. The list goes on. At that point she may or may not have started developing the feelings for Brief that come full circle next episode. If she has, she may not be aware of it. Either way, she's too proud to admit it. Hell, she outright states that she only wants him because he'd be number one thousand. Cue neither of them enjoying it (Panty's hymen grows back, and Brief actually looks bored during the act.) In episode 13, on the other hand, one must remember that Panty has no reason to believe that screwing Brief will acomplish what it does. The way I interpreted it, Panty thinks the world is going to end, there's nothing she can do about it, so why not do what she does best, and why not with the one she has realized she loves? So when she offers her angelic virginity to Brief out of love, she gets her second chance. Tl;dr: Sex for the sake of sex =/= Sex for the sake of love.
Brief is the cause of the death of queen beeDuring episode 12, it was mentioned that Queen Bee, the cheerleader ghost, had died by the sting of the pet bee of a geek. And what did we see in the earlier episode starring queen bee? It was Brief who was taking care of bees. Brief, the guy who gets called a geek throughout the series. Clearly, Queen Bee had only died very recently, possibly even without anyone noticing before she turned ghost, during the schoolyear after being stung by Brief's bee.
The characters can see the Art Shifts as wellIn "Vomiting Point" the vastly different drawing style used to depict Little Tokyo is not simply a narrative technique, as when Panty and Stocking arrive they remain in the style in which they usually appear, clearly distinct from everything else. This indicates that the appearances of characters and objects at any one time are visible to the characters as well as the audience, including any changes that occur. It also explains why Panty and Stocking are massive Memetic Sex Gods, as their highly public Transformation Sequences, in which they suddenly become impossibly attractive compared to everyone else, would be slightly noticable.
The Monkey Lawyer will return in the next seasonThere will be another court case episode where he ends up defending the heroes. However this time, just as he's about to get the heroes off the hook another lightning bolt/strike to the head will take away all of his competence/badassitude and he'll go back to being a regular monkey, leaving the heroes screwed.
Panty and Stocking worked for the same organization as Dokuro-chan.
Panty is pregnant.Of course, the fact she was sliced up probably won't affect the baby, who's still in egg stage. But assuming that she still was powerles when she did her deed with Brief, she could be able to be impregnated by a human. Not to mention that Brief didn't look like he was going to use a condom in that dire situation. Make that as you will, but yeah.
The Anarchy sisters are related to Catherine.The only reasons being that she's a rather fanservicey girl who just happens to be a succubus and that her underwear kinda looks like "Mom's".
Panty and Stocking takes place in the same world as Scott Pilgrim.Seriously, what other reason would there be that ghosts explode into coins when they are killed?
Stockings clothes have padding in the chest area.Based on ep 9B, when Panty masquerades as Stocking, her breasts are MUCH bigger. In reality, Stockings breasts are small, but she doesn't want to feel inferior, so installs padding in her clothes, making this a case of A-Cup Angst
The shocker ending...was a nightmare that Brief was having.
Gainax is a fan of Phineas and Ferb. Compare Panty & Stocking to Candace and Stacy. YMMV
Gainax is Heaven, and Heaven just wants us to have a good timeThink about it. Heaven could have just as easily sent the two to purgatory if the intent of their banishment was to punish them. If Heaven wanted rid of ghosts, Scanty and Kneesocks repressed, or Corset destroyed, why not just send in a team of not-fallen Angels to do the job, that would clearly be more efficient. No, the reason Heaven sent Panty and Stocking was simple: Heaven wants us to have fun. Dispite constant bickering, Panty and Stocking aren't inherently evil. They both have their sins, but in varous ways they overcame them long enough to do what was right. They are the Anarchy Sisters for a reason: anarchy is good! Scanty and Kneesocks represent the strict, militaristic guidelines set down by society and government, i.e. the man. They seem superior at first compared to the anarchy of the Angels, but are quickly identified to be evil at heart, with not an iota of good will in their beings. The Ghosts are the pent up stress and rage the rules cause in people not allowed to express themselves. Corset, who strikes more than a passing resemblance to a puritainical leader (baring the BDSM), is the ultimate embodiement of that ideal. He gets his jollies constricting (without self contol) the will of others, he does everything for his own gain, and behind his tightly-kept exterior lies a monster of rage and pure evil. Just look at his name; a device used to bring order and conformity at the expense of freedom and overall health. Garterbelt is an exemplary figure in that he learned the balance between internal and external anarchy. He lived a life of total anarchy, and thus was sinful. But then Heaven sent him here to live all of history, and then guide Panty and Stocking, because will have mastered the true teachings: anarchy on the outside, control on the inside. He is willing to go to just about as audatious means as the Anarchy Sisters to achieve his goals, but it is always for a good cause. Just like his hidden BDSM and his namesake, he is in control of his morals, but just as wild on the outside as we all want to be. Heaven sent Panty and Stocking to earth for a whole slew of reasons. Fighting ghosts will blow off steam, living under Garterbelt will teach them to be moral while anarchistic, and them there will provide a method of disposing with Scanty, Kneesocks, and Corset while stopping their plans. Heaven just assumed that Panty and Stocking would work out in the end. Their meteoric rise to earthly fame will serve as an emotional model for others to follow, leading the world away from constrictive rules which serve to fester immorality and internal strife, and towards outward expression and freedom which frees the soul from stress and allows for morality to take control of humanity's motives and direct its actions. Thusly, Studio Gainax is Heaven, because it wants exactly that, outward insanity and anarchy, but with good, pure, heroic intentions at heart. All of its animes push exactly that: rebellion, youth, heroism, and insainity. Gainax's show is to the viewers what Heaven's Panty and Stocking are Daten City.
PSG being licensed by Funimation means they will dub it.Why else would the DVDs be scheduled for a release in 2012?
There will be a character with a Bra-themed name/the show has a feminist slant.Dragonball GT eventually did this, and they also used an underpants-naming theme. Odds are, it'll be "Mom" (aka God) to go along with "Corset" (aka Satan). God is female in the series to go along with Panty's repeated mantra of "A woman should be able to have sex freely, a woman is strong and should be able to have free will to do whatever she pleases." (See: Episode 13 and "D City Rock"). YMMV on whether this is a Broken Aesop or not, considering Panty uses zero protection (granted, if she's dead/was never alive to begin with, she's infertile anyways) and expects men to clean up her messes, and 99.9% of her sexual conquests are devoid of any romantic feelings for the guys, ready to throw them out the next day. But maybe that's the point. The show's saying sex for the sake of sex is okay. On the subject of the show having a hidden message, I think the other one is "Bondage can be good OR bad". Garterbelt says you need to have self-control, while Corset goes Up to Eleven and actually harms himself while doing so. My money is on Stocking being good after all, considering she never does it to excess.
Panty and Stocking are in fact Bubbles and Buttercup.
Chuck and Fastener are basically Prinnies.Given the implications that Daten City (and similar cities) could be a form of Purgatory, it seems entirely possible that Chuck and Fastener are sinner souls who have to serve heaven or hell until they can pay off their debts. Or they could even be particularly disgraced (or even flat out dead) ex-angels/demons who have been reincarnated in that form. ...Or perhaps this troper has just been playing too much Disgaea recently.
In the second season, Brief will learn to turn his briefs into some sort of weapon.Defies all logic, but writing-wise it makes sense. The end of the stinger implied that the new season would focus on him for at least part of it, and since Panty's been diced and Stocking is evil, they won't be around to fight for him. While "High-school Nudical" would imply that the weapon would be a shotgun, this troper argues that that was only because Panty was wielding it. If he learned to transform his own underwear, my guess for the form would be a [[Ghostbusters Proton Pack]].
Briefs is a reincarnation of Naota.A female lead attempts to get a weapon out of another character, and it is too small to use. She gets it from him, and huge. Both are Gainax series and in both cases, it is presented as phallic imagery.
This series may have a video game based on its franchise.And it will be filled with awesome.
The mother of Panty and Stocking is...Bayonetta. Why? Because Rule of Cool
Panty and Stocking were killed by Chuck when they were still alive
Panty is the real protagonist of the showJust look at episodes 12 and 13. Season One was just the story of when she broke away from Stocking and the rest of the show will mainly focus on her.
Stocking will be the main focus of season twoAside from a couple of Stocking-centric episodes, Panty seemed to be the main attraction of the actual plot, getting more episodes to herself. The first season was also extremely sexual, and that's Panty's shtick. Stocking will be more important to the next season, which, unlike season one, will revolve more around sweets than sex.
In season two Brief's dad will still be trying to get Scanty and Brief hooked upI mean the guy arranged a marriage between the two without telling the Brief until way late and he had no say in it. I would be more surprised if he didn't do this. Offscreen Teleportation and transformation ability is a power given to him by Tzeentch, and as for Khorne, well... did you happen to miss what it is he turns into?
There will be no second season.There is no proof of a second season other than a "To be continued" at the end of the final episode. They put that at the end of all the episodes, yet, the story never actually continues. I think it means that they will continue on with their lives, not the show. On top of that, "Panty & Stocking in Sanitarybox" was probably a way for the writers/producers to say "STOP TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY. THIS WAS A JOKE.", because of how plotless and confusing the episode is. The original series also ended in 2010, and it's already 2012. I think there would be some information out about it by now if it was going to happen.
The Epilouge wasn't real and probably Kneesocks and Scanty's dream before they die off with corset.!Stocking betraying Panty wasn't real. Considering the nature of Ganix, the series, and how the ending's mood greatly contrast with Panty's Break the Haughty moment, this was a faux ending for shits and giggles. The true ending is corset being smash to death by a pair legs. Also the ova clearly indicates the ending wasn't canon.
Scanty and Kneesocks hid their horns in episode 12 by means of alternate dimensions in their skulls.Considering how nutty the rest of the series is, it could happen.
The guy Panty was fucking in Juice was BriefHad to be said.
The reason the briefs had limited ammo is...Men have limited orgasms, while women can orgasm repeatedly.
Stocking dyes her hair.Other than hair color, the Anarchy sisters are pratically identical, Stocking decided to dye her hair into a darker color after she started to associate herself with the gothic themes, thinking that blond was too bright, it would also explain why she got two different colors, when everyone else, even the Demon sisters, have single color hair.
The series was/is written by Tara Gilesbie...or at least ispired by My Immortal. Doesn't the physical description of Stocking ring a bell? Black hair with pink highlights, icy blue eyes and overall goffik look. Stocking is just like Tara or any other goffik character in the whole fic.
Panty is a genderbent Duke Nukem.(Can't take credit for this one myself, it was originally suggested on The Escapist's forums.) They're both blonde, wear red, adore guns, fight like badasses, and treat the opposite sex like dirt. It took Duke Nukem Forever well, forever to come out, while it's been two years since Panty and Stocking Season 1 ended, and we're still waiting on a resolution.
Stocking's love for the Ghost caused her Face-Heel TurnAll according to Corset's plan.
Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt is a rock group, and the series is their Band ToonOnly, they entered a deal with Studio Gainax and pretended little emphasis on their music. Gainax being Gainax and drunk, this is what we got, and The Stinger of the final episode is owed to Panty foolishly daring them to outdo themselves.
"Heaven's Unbreakable Oath" will become important in Season 2.We only hear of it briefly in "The Stripping", but Panty and Stocking apparently take this seriously enough to try and get the money before the three days are up. (Granted they do push their luck when they actually get to the casino), but unusually, all Garterbelt says about it is, "You know what will happen if that oath is broken!" leading for there to be speculation on whether it was just a throw-away remark or if it has serious consequences (maybe it has something to do with Panty and Stocking being thrown out of Heaven in the first place)?
Panty and Stocking are deconstructions of Manic Pixie Dream Girls
The Gainax Ending was actually a prank from Panty and StockingThey had mostly planned it out for a while to celebrate after they neutralized the source of the Ghosts, and Stocking improvised the final details on why she had supposedly cut Panty into pieces. The respawned Corset was actually a puppet (they didn't notice due being too shocked by what had just happened) voiced by Panty, and they already knew what happened if you cut an Angel with heaven-sent weapons.
This takes place in the same universe as The Screwtape Letters.In the Screwtape Letters, Hell and its denizens are portrayed as less hedonistic psychopaths and more demonic Vogons. Heaven is regarded as a place of joy and entertainment. In other words, the exact opposite of the stereotypical forces of Heaven and Hell, without resorting to God Is Evil. What does Panty and Stocking have? Angels full of joy and entertainment(if a tad more than what C.S Lewis would expect), and demons who keep trying to enforce the rules.
Panty has been in love with Brief from Les Diaboliques, but has been in denial and was denied access to Heaven and Depowered because of thatStocking's gluttony is the culinary equivalent of Panty's sluttiness, but she never went in trouble because of that. Why? Because she genuinely loves sweetness and was never in denial about love (even if she has to give up Heaven for it).
Panty, on the other hand, was forced to stay on Earth and to not have sex or she'd lose her powers (and Garterbelt forgot to tell her about the last part until too late), and gets back her powers when she manages to have sex with Brief (and apparently the best of her life, given her screams of pleasure) after a previous attempt was so painful she was left disgusted with sex.
What was the difference with the first attempt? As she had been told by the actress, she was doing what she really wanted.
Panty's seemingly heartless behaviour at the end of Les Diaboliques, was actually a brilliantly executed Batman GambitPanty actually cares enough about Brief to want him not to die. She also wants her shot at the demons. Here's how it works out:
Corset is not actually a demon, or if he is one then he was not one originally.Think about this one. Corset is Garterbelt's Evil Counterpart. Garterbelt is not himself an Angel, he is a human cursed with immortality to fulfill a mission from God. Who's to say Corset's deal is not similar? He could easily be a human who sold his soul to Satan in exchange for incredible power and influence. Or, if we go even further to make him the polar opposite of Garterbelt... a formerly righteous man who somehow fell into the clutches of demons and was brainwashed and tortured until his mind snapped like a twig. In order to survive the pain, he had to embrace it fullheartedly, and that's how the monster known as Corset was born.
