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.
DO. NOT. WANT.
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.
I AIN’T AFRAID OF NO GHOSTS. ER. DEMONS.
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.
Overcooled, UP AND AWAAAAYYYY!
