Panty And Stocking With Garterbelt back to reviews

Definitely worth a look.
Short summary of the show: Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi meets Powerpuff Girls and Invader Zim. Add in some sexual innuendos and some other... rather mature humor, and you get this. A show about two angels that must defeat ghosts, but would rather give in to their own pleasures instead.

Okay, the part they fight with clothing articles may have some time to getting used to, but the rest of the show is great.

The show has amazing animation and dubbing, almost making it seem as if you're watching a real Western cartoon. The animation is very flowing, as well as the voices perfectly matching the characters. Not to mention the soundtrack as well. Who ever would have thought that using electronica in an anime would actually work. It perfectly gets along with the scenes that it is played in. I give applaud to Gainax for the work they've done on this part.

The characters are well made. They are anything but flat characters, and each have different personalities, developed to fit right into the plot. I have to say Scanty and Stocking are my favorite characters out of all of them, with Brief running as third. The characters aren't despicable or scrappies either, so you won't really have a character that you don't like.

The things that I'm bothered with however, is the overuse of innuendos. Though they are funny, there is only so many innuendos that one could handle. Then again, this is based on Western Animation, so don't be too surprised. Something else I can't handle is some of the disturbing scenes in this anime. You have to admit that some of the chopped up body parts in this anime is very... unsettling. Even if it's just a cartoon. They also swear like sailors. Needless to say, this anime, at times, is very NSFW.

Panty And Stocking With Garterbelt is definitely worthy to watch, though it may not be your kind of thing. Though, don't watch it if you don't like innuendos, and easily offended by even the smallest thing. Because honestly, this could get beyond just normal offensive at times. Most likely to become a legend upon the animes, this is another animation that Gainax had just done right.
