What. WHAT. WHAT.
First of all, MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone. Currently, it is Christmas here where I live but all the presents have been opened and all the crazy family members have left. I’ve had my fair share of holiday cheer for the day, so I don’t mind sitting down and finishing this PnS post (I always write the first paragraph last…am I weird?). That’s right, I’M WORKING ON CHRISTMAS FOR YOU GUYS. You’d better appreciate it. ANYWAYS, onto the drama that is PnS…
Panty gets the boot from Garterbelt for not being an angel anymore, and is left to wander the rainy streets. She goes through a couple of…misfortunes…and falls into a sewer. RECAP TIME. Once we’re reminded that the Hellsmonkey Key thing was awoken by Panty’s kiss etc. etc. we transition to…a farm. Yeehaw, farmgirl Panty is doing..farm things. I don’t know what they do on farms. Milk cows and stuff? Right.
After the initial “WHY THE HELL ARE WE ON A FARM?” reaction, things are explained by an old lady. She took Panty in and showed her a simpler, happier life. Of course, the next scene involves a bunch of bikers shooting everything in sight and killing the old lady. In her dying breath, she tells Panty to go do what she is meant to do…save Briefs. With that she becomes badass again, and leaves on her motorcycle. Once she leaves, the director says cut, because it was just a bunch of actors Garter hired to get Panty all fired up again. *facepalm*
To activate the Hellgate, Briefs needs to be erect, so Corset uses his bondage skills to try to arouse the poor redhead. There’s no response from little Briefs until Panty arrives, strips, and offers her angelic virginity to Briefs. Briefs goes NUTS at this, and Corset realizes that his power will be unusable if he…well…lets it all out. LOL.
Scanty and Kneesocks attack Panty, but guess who stops them? I called it last episode (and I bet a lot of you did too) but Stocking is back, and ready to kick ass. The first thing she does is toss Panty and Briefs into the sky though. That way they can make sweet, sweet love where she cannot see or hear. Apparently, breaking your hymen makes you an angel again, so Panty is back to normal and ready for action once she lands.
Panty and Stocking face off against the demon sisters again, getting me very excited. Then Brief ruins it by falling into a keyhole (since Panty didn’t save him) and activating the Hellgate. DERP. The Hellgate opens, and Corset lets out his creepy villain laugh while transforming. Oh, you ugly beast…To make matters worse, he uses Scanty and Kneesocks as weapons, one in each hand.
While Panty and Stocking battle the penis Ghost summoned by the Hellgate (really…did you expect anything less of PnS than for the last boss to be a giant phallus?), Garter faces off against corset. MASOCHISM VS MASOCHISM! PLUS GARTERBELT’S THEME SONG! YEAAAHHHHH!!! As much as I loved this clash, someone had to die. That someone was Garterbelt, who died with a cry of OH MY GOD!!! as the angels ignore him.
The angels are still pretty chill about the death of their guardian, and move onto other things. Such as stealing Garter’s credit card to order stuff form Heaven and making Chuck transform into some Ghost-like monster. They ride Chuck up the…shaft…of the giant Ghost initiating another EPIC SEQUENCE. Fastener joins in on the transforming fun too. Chucks owns both Fastener AND the penis ghost though. By the time they get to the top, they have a nasty surprise for Corset – SPECIAL DELIVERY FROM HEAVEN!
They summon a GIANT GUN and aim it at the Corset-Ghost fusion…only to fire it the wrong way. The real finisher to the special is a WOMANLY LEG COMING FROM THE SKY AND STOMPING HIM. I kid you not, this is how Corset is defeated. It was nothing short of classy. I thought it was God, but it’s their “mom.”
Garterbelt revives (GOD MY OH!!) and yells at the angels for maxing out his credit card on Heavens, and takes them home. Now, here’s where the trolling starts. Stocking SLICES UP PANTY INTO 666 PIECES. Out of nowhere. Then she says she’s a demon, Corset’s living head pops out of Brief’s penis, and the two of them walk off. Not before explaining “we need these 666 pieces to get back to the Hellgate. I don’t mind if you pick up the pieces and have Panty back when we’re done, just don’t try and stop us.” *blink blink cricket chirp* WHAT THE FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUCK WAS THAT?
End Thoughts: Oh my God Gainax you just…WOW. TROOLLLLLLL ENDINGGGGGG. It’s so retarded, my rage has simply left my body and flown off into space. Somewhere in our cosmos exists a dense mass of my rage, intangible but slowly dispersing across the universe.
The “Season 2” could be a troll, and it just ends there to show you how stupid twist endings are. It certainly makes a statement of those anime that have a retarded twist at the end just so they can continue. If not…then they’re seriously continuing on and making a season 2. No matter what, Gainax did their very best to troll us, and succeeded. They aimed for a horrible ending and succeeded. Their goal is to MAKE US ANGRY. Somehow, this seems slightly better than trying to make a good ending and failing.
A demon is a fallen angel, so when Stocking came to help Panty, she may have decided to become a demon then. I don’t get how she’s a demon if she still has all her angel weapons and such though o.o Anyways, I think she has hidden motives. She always seemed tentative to leave Earth (like in that slice of life episode back there), and she shares the same masochism as Corset so…who knows. I guess the demon sisters will be the good guys now since they’ve been abandoned though if season 2 comes about. But really, PnS and plot? I shouldn’t even bother figuring it out.
At this point, I really don’t want to think about season 2 much aside from what I’m writing here. If there’s a second season GREAT. PnS was a good series. If not then ALL THE MORE TROLLAGE. You can’t say you didn’t expect it though. I will just erase the last 30 seconds of fail from my memory and keep the rest of the awesome episode in my mind. Yeah. That will fix everything.
TROLLING ASIDE, because I don’t want to rage over it (if you’re angry over it, then they’ve won. That’s how I see it), it was a solid finale of the caliber I had expected. All the right songs in the right places, tons of action, and a finishing move that NO ONE would have predicted. TTGL was given a run for its money. ….No, not really. But it was pretty crazy and wtf when that giant foot came out of the sky.
It really was a decent show. It’s not the perfect anime I thought it would be after watching episode 1, but a great experiment by Gainax. Episode 6 had one of the best action scenes I’ve seen in a long time. Sure, it had quite a bit of lackluster episodes, but the overall average places it around an 8/10 for me. PnS has always generated a lot of buzz each episode, with otaku talking about the crazy plots for each episodes almost as soon as they come out. It’s one of those shows. Internet drama at every turn. Haters gonna hate, and all that.
THANK YOU, everyone for following these posts for this long and not giving up on PnS. It was quite the show to blog about. To avoid rambling any longer I shall say MERRY CHRISTMAS AND GOODNIGHT!
