Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt – 12

Panty is in trouble. Briefs is in trouble. Stocking is gone. Game over?

There is no food in my house. I had cake and ice cream for lunch. Technically, I could cook some beef yakiudon or something with the ingredients I have in my fridge, but that requires effort. Effort I’d rather spend blogging, apparently. I had neglected a lot of shows all weekend for video games and TRON with some of my friends, so now I’m making up for it. Afterall, I’m FREE for a few weeks from school, so I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT! …Within reason.

Recap. Derp. The only good part about the recap is we get to see more of the Mayor, and hear some of the backstories of how the Ghosts came into being. That, and some offscreen, hardcore yuri action. It was pretty intense.Expect fanart everywhere.

Meanwhile, Panty and Stocking (well…just Stocking) are killing Ghosts. Panty is busy plotting to have sex with 1000 guys before she goes back to Heaven. It’s things like this that make me wonder how Heaven could even take her back. But they don’t, so I thought correctly. Basically, they got enough Heavens to go back, but only the slightly purer Stocking was allowed in.

And thus Panty and Briefs was formed! Like usual, it’s just Panty having sex while the other one actually fights ghosts. <_< Of course, Briefs can’t fight, so he’s plain out MAULED. He returns to Panty empty-handed, who is up to number 999 by now, and needs one more. Briefs invites her to come to a fancy party with him, ad she takes this as the perfect chance to get down and dirty one more time. Which is the perfect moment for Garter to pop in and say “lulz, by the way, you’re banned from having sex if you wanna go to Heaven.”

Garter cockblocks all the guys Panty tries to bang at the party, completely frustrating the poor, sex-craved diva. Things turn oddly serious and Romeo & Juliet-like when she quietly approaches a fish tank and sees a gorgeous ginger kid on the other side. DAMN BRIEFS, YOU LOOK FINE.

The party turns out to be a sort of ceremony to announce the wedding of Briefers (Briefs) with…Scanty! =O Briefs refuses and claims to want to marry Panty *cue spotlight*. Scanty is so pissed that she throws off her disguise and gets ready to fight.


Jaw-dropping fight scene…START. It doesn’t escalate to the level of, say, episode 6, but the tension is still there. Panty’s gun jams and is unable to fire, leaving her wide open to an onslaught of bullets and slashes. Face it, it’s a 2 to 1 fight and she’s trapped against a wall. There’s no way out of this.

Or at least, there wouldn’t be if Briefs wasn’t there. He jumps in and fires his Ghost Busters backpack vac into the fray, creating a smokescreen for them to escape. Panty is all tsun tsun about being saved by Briefs, who she doesn’t even recognize as the Geek until he flattens his hair down again to show her. You would think the whole “I love Panty!” thing tipped her off beforehand.


Panty’s car breaks down next, forcing them to stay in an abandoned house. Panty is completely infatuated with Briefs now (lust? love? who knows) and shows it in the only way she knows…sex. Briefs agrees, but Panty can’t seem to do anything without being in pain. The king of awkward timing, Garter, appears and inspects her nether region. Apparently her hymen has regenerated thanks to some Virgin Revival thing to prevent her from doing every guy she sees XDDD Guess briefs won’t be #1000.

You’ve gotta be kidding me. I finally get a chick, and then she becomes impenetrable.

Panty and Briefs are walked on AGAIN by Corset (the Mayor) and the demon sisters. He steals Briefs, since his penis is apparently the Blood of the Hellmonkey, and needed for his plans. It glows and turns into a giant key o_o Somehow, this manages to be kind of sad and dramatic. SOMEHOW. I’ve never been so sad at the sight of panties disintegrating. What will Panty do without her powers or her sister?

End Thoughts: Just as I thought, the last 2 episodes are going to be one big finale with…PLOT? YES, PLOT! Who would’ve guessed it! The plot concerns a penis being the key to ultimate power, mind you, but it’s the closest we’re gonna get to a serious topic.

The first thing I do before an episode of Panty and Stocking is prepare myself for disappointment. I was all but ready to dismiss the episode as another bad one once the recap started, but it quickly redeemed itself. The way they did the recap was great, and probably the best way they would’ve done a recap. Points for that. However, recaps are tedious and unnecessary in certain situation. We KNOW they’ve been killing a buttload of Ghosts, we don’t need a reminder of that.

The second part was great. I’ve been waiting for Panty to finally see Brief’s charms. It took a kick to her vain side to finally get her to like him, but as long as Geek Boy is happy. Really, he could do better than a slut like her, but to each their own…I don’t want to expect too much out of this “pairing” so to speak, though. I can see Panty going onto some other guy as soon as she’s done with Briefs. I don’t know if he has enough power to change her significantly. XD

Plus, THAT FIGHT SCENE OMGGGGGG!!!! FINALLY!!! <3 Thank you PnS…thank you. At this rate, I will have faith in the finale. I think this will actually be the first show I finish blogging about. Now I can say a dirty, rowdy show like PnS took my “this is the first series I blogged about from start to end!” virginity. I am not sure whether to smile or cry.

I miss Stocking, but I’m convinced that Stocking is going to make a glorious return, and Panty will somehow get her powers back. Maybe they’re just become humans in the end, who knows. I get the feeling they won’t be returning to Heaven any time soon though. But with PnS…anything can happen. One thing is for sure though: the next episode should outdo episode 6. I really hope it does. PLEASE. See you then.

    This episode was pure gold. I’m really hoping stocking comes back in for the grand finale at the end but it definitely was a climatic buildup for the finale. Brief’s new look was mindblowing :)It’ll be sad when this series ends as it was a weekly dose of madness and nonsense

    • Overcooled says:

      It’s the kind of episode that makes me believe in PnS again. We got crazy action AND some development. And by development, I mean Panty wanting to bang Briefs because he looks so hot with his hair slicked back. XD

      Nothing will ever be able to compare to this insanity D=

    did anyone notice the buildings are also an inuendo 😀

  3. foshizzel says:

    Woooot some actual plot happening! even thou it might be a little late, but still works for me 🙂

    • Overcooled says:

      Well, there’s always been a semblance of a plot in the show, but it’s been pretty…minimalistic…to say the least. XD It works for me too~

    Brief an actual bishounen was no surprise. Hellmonkey was no surprise. Panty not being able to sleep with #1000 was no surprise. Ack, I’m expecting no surprise for the final episode but I still want some KICKASS action, kthxbai. 😀

    Also, Corset’s itching issues creep me out…and the fishtank scene was totally taken out of Romeo and Juliet. 😛

    • Overcooled says:

      I was surprised when Panty couldn’t “copulate” with Briefs, but not like “OH SNAP” surprised, just…”oohhh” surprised. PnS isn’t known for being subtle, but it makes up for it with action. I WANT KICKASS ACTION IN MY FINALE TOO.

      Corset’s face creeps me out more than the itching. I just figured he was…itchy. LOL.

    • Dan-go says:

      reallly? i was always surprised by how far they will go before some kinda child prtection service shuts down the whole show

  5. Alynn says:

    I loved the fish tank scene. Liked it soo much better here than in the actually Romeo and Juliet movie.


    • Overcooled says:

      OHHHHH SNAAAPPP you just dissed up Romeo and Juliet~ I don’t think I’d go that far (although the music was better here).

      Corset is creepy in a bad way. I look forward to his demise.

    • Dan-go says:

      but the romeo and juliet movie version…”BRING ME MY LONGSWORD HOE” (his gun being named longsword) as opposed to “Bring me my longsword, ho!” was freaking hilarious

  6. Ness says:

    I totally said it earlier that Brief is probably some bishi behind those curls buwahahah. But I didn’t expect him to be rich haha. Loved the fish tank scene also. Can’t wait for the next episode.

    • Overcooled says:

      Yep, you called it! I think the custom is to give an “internet cookie” out, is it not? XD Oh, and the rich thing is a nice bonus too. I’m always up for good-looking guys being rich.

  7. Dan-go says:

    HOLY CRAP ACTUAL TENSION!!!!!Brief u are one sexy ghostbuster, i know who i’m calling if somethings weird

  8. Dan-go says:

    And how awesome was tron OC? daft punk tron soundtrack, download it NOW, it’s sooo good 27 songs of pure electrifying daft punk beats

    • Overcooled says:

      So…off-topic. LOL. But yes, it was an awesome visual treat with a few storytelling flaws. Overall though: wicked. I will be downloading it soon, yes XD

  9. Gunny says:

    Damn you, Briefs! I’m not going to forget his name for a good time ;P He was really gorgeous this week…
    and Panty blushed. And I miss Stocking. BUT, HELL YEAH! we’ve got some plot this time. Awww… I want some unpredictable end next week… D: oh well, GAINAX should do whatever it wants.

    • Overcooled says:

      I miss Stocking too…D= But they made Panty become less sleazy this episode for a bit, so having just her in the spotlight was fine.

      Episode 13, here we come~
