Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt Season 2, as its name implies, is a fan-made continuation of Studio Gainax's Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, picking up where the series' infamous Cliffhanger Gainax Ending left off. Since some of the staff of Gainax has split to form Studio Trigger, it seemed very unlikely that a continuation of the series would occur. So several artists, simply known as O·TAKO Studios, decided if they weren't gonna do it, they might as well pick up the slack.
After Stocking leaves with Corset to travel to Oten City to unlock Hell once more, Brief and Chuck follow them while retrieving the cut up pieces of Panty. Meanwhile, Scanty and Kneesocks, now staying with Garterbelt, are tasked with cleaning up the ghost infestation in Daten City.
The comic can be read here. Unfortunately, it has been put on hiatus since late 2017 because the authors decided to focus on some "super secret" animated project In the Style of... PSG, so we'll probably never know what they had in store for the Anarchy Sisters.
This webcomic provides examples of:
- Demoted to Extra: Panty is now reduced to a Living Macguffin, a contrast to the last two series episodes focusing on her. Mainly a consequence of the ending of the original series.
- Dragon with an Agenda: Stocking, apparently.
- Darker and Edgier: While the comic isn't devoid of the Comedic Sociopathy of the anime, it is notably much more serious. Even the scene where Scanty and Kneesocks are about to make out is quickly interrupted.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Stocking apparently doesn't like incest, or at least in See-Through.
- Evil All Along: The comic sticks to the idea that Stocking really is a demon working for Corset.
- Evil Costume Switch: Stocking continues to wear her angel outfit even after she left with Corset, and as seen above, her katanas turn to the demon weapons' color scheme of black and gold, though they have yet to appear in the comic.
- Fastball Special: Garter does this with Fastener.
- Fix Fic: The comic seeks to reach a conclusion to the original series' Gainax Ending.
- HeelFace Turn: Scanty and Kneesocks are now working for Garterbelt, taking on the Anarchy Sisters' job of hunting ghosts.
- Hell on Earth: Corset's ultimate plan, once again.
- Light Is Not Good: Stocking keeps her angel outfit on after The Reveal. Any kind of dark-colored outfit that she had has yet to make an appearance.
- Living Macguffin: Panty is Brief's only clue of Stocking's current whereabouts. Downplayed in that Panty is dead.
- Morph Weapon: Stocking can now change her stockings into weapons besides katanas. The weapons she's made so far are the Scissor Blade and the Buster Sword.
- Precision F-Strike: Scanty calls Garter an asshole after going out on their first mission.
- The Promise: Scanty And Kneesocks have one since childhood.
- Scars Are Forever:
- Scanty still has the panty-shaped scars Panty gave her in the final episodes of the series.
- Garter's afro still has a big chunk taken out of it from the final battle.
- Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: Scanty, Kneesocks, and Fastener are blown up before their first mission even begins. Subverted in that they're shown perfectly fine in their next appearance. Double Subverted in that said reappearance is an explanation as to why they were blown up. Then triple subverted when it's shown that they did indeed survive.
- Villain Protagonist: Stocking.
- You Can't Thwart Stage One: Stocking and Corset have already reached Oten City by the time Brief and Chuck begin their quest.
