Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt – 10


Man, this episode is all over the place. It has 5 different parts ranging from wasting my time to being one of the best things I’ve seen since episode 6. I won’t judge you if you skip to the concert portion and ignore everything else. Really, I would recommend that…

Briefs whips out his…teapot and starts spurting….milk…all over Panty and Stocking. I am not sure if this is the best way to start an episode or the worst way to. Anyways, once we zoom out a bit, it becomes clear that Panty and Stocking have shrunken in size due to the demon sister’s meddling. They don’t actually appear this episode, but at least they’re mentioned XD Briefs decides to keep them safe until the turn back to normal, but the sisters dislike his patronizing tone so much that they attack him and then get swallowed.

The solution is laxatives. As awkward as this is in itself, Garterbelt makes it worse by being a perv and trying to watch him poop. The conversation goes on for a LONG time until Briefs gives in and craps his guts out. Garterbelt inspects his “Frankfurter”, which scares Briefs so much that he inadvertently flushes the sisters away. Horrified, and still pantless, Briefs panics as Gartberlt sends Chuck after the girls.

Turns out sending Chuck down the drain was pointless since Panty just calls Gartbelt on the phone from inside of Briefs. His cellphone, somehow doubles as an x-ray GPS, so he sees the pair of them jumping around in the poor redhead’s lungs. The sisters go on a rampage around his body, even doing a transformation sequence (very random…) in his brain and making him punch Garterbelt over and over.

LOL his stethoscope has a smiley on it

They get bored of that and eventually slide down into his stomache, where they start to turn back to their normal size. Never fear, Doctor Garterbelt is here! With VASELINE. Lulz. Let’s not get too descriptive here…Briefs basically gets buttraped. After giving birth to the sisters (creepy), they ignore him and chat avidly about their intestinal adventures.

There is little to no point in me summarizing the next portion, since there is no real plot. There is one, but it’s not actually…important…per se. You’ll know after watching Chuck walk down a hallway, only to be foiled by Fastener over and over again. Watching him respawn in odd ways is almost satisfying, but not quite.


Chuck has a very weird highschool flashback of always being the loser, and Fastener being the popular kid. Finally retaliating, the two scuffle until they end up in a kitchen. The animation starts to pick up here, but ends abruptly when Chuck unzips the pink ladybug. (Looks like a ladybug to me) He promptly keels over, and a devil woman walks out of his head. If only we had a counter for every wtf moment in the bottom right hand corner…

Chuck goes to put his rival’s corpse in a disposal bin, but is run over by none other than his owners…Twice. He ends up in the hospital (so all those other times he was fine, but not this time?) wrapped in bandages. The animation suddenly turns badass as he tries to move towards what I assume is a bedpan so he can urinate. Sadly, he is impeded by a fly (yes, a fly) and wets himself. Chuck snaps and punches the fly so hard he breaks the wall, unleashing a legion of angry flies.

The flies lock him in a microwave and he…he just gets messed up okay? Watch it yourself to see, IT’S JUST WEIRD. From there, things turn into some weird black and white movie and just…A devil in his head? Unzipping? Sex? Smacking his head on everything he can find? I GIVE UP TRYING TO SUMMARIZE IT.

In b4 “It’s PnS, y u worry about plot?”

It is most likely you’re feeling like PnS has let us down by now, but no…what’s this? A concert? A badass concerts with more parodies than you can shake a stick at with sexy animation and rocking music? Oh baby, I forgive you, come back to me…Spam time.

Gorillaz, Kiss, TATU, Gaga, Beatles!

End Thoughts: What started off as an “okay, this is just…alright…kind of interesting” episode turned into an “I need to watch this again” sort of episode. No Ghosts were killed, and the episode has close to zero dialogue aside from the first part, but it was still good overall. OVERALL, that is. When you split it into 3 parts, things start to change.

The Briefs-centric part is a PnS spin on the typical plot device where the protagonists are shrunk and cause all sorts of havoc inside someone’s body. I distinctly recall this happening in the Magic Schoolbus, to yet another redhead who reminds me of Briefs. It’s been done to death, and this episode brings nothing new to it except Garterbelt being a pedophile and a few chuckles. The animation was surprisingly lazy too. I guess they put all their eggs in one basket with the last part.

The Chuck episode is one of the weirdest PnS episodes yet. Really. It’s like some art student’s rendition of the Looney Tunes. On drugs. While it’s not a bad idea, Chuck and Fastener are not characters who are particularly lovable. If it was another mascot, I’m sure I’d enjoy this more. Anyways, aside from being weird, Gainax went nuts trying a bunch of different animation types. Probably the only thing that kept me from skipping ahead. Shame that it started off so badly, because the very last Chuck part is just a mess of WTF…The kind of thing I love XD

The last part is a concert, which is, once again, overdone. (Not in American cartoons, but in anime) I’ve been saying that a lot. It’s prettymuch a parody show, so I don’t mind things that are popular being used again, as long as they’re done WELL or in a UNIQUE way. Don’t fix what ain’t broke, right?  Luckily, this section was a GOOD parody. It parodied a hugggeeeee amount of musical artists I can’t even begin to name, and it was just so perfectly PnS…I swear they know we’re dying for the OST and wanted to tease us even more with this.

I didn’t forget your naked Panty, don’t worry ;D

    Poor brief… Garterbelt had his way with him… >.>
    The shitty episode was made up with the Anarchy song. I am still rocking on it. :3

    Representing the boys: WHERE IS MAH NAKED STOCKING?

    • Kyokai says:

      Also, for those who can’t wait for the single. You still gotta wait but you can enjoy the direct rip of the audio here.

    • Overcooled says:

      I know, the Anarchy song just made everything okay <3 SO. GOOD.

      LOL I always tend to screencap more Stocking, so I try to balance it out. Because Stocking > Panty~

  2. Namika says:

    Okaaay….. quite a bipolar episode we have here….. Poor Brief, he lost his virginity to that crazy priest O_O Umm….I know that one of the main aces of this show is an absolutely ridiculous and messed-up plot, but leaving the Brief rape related part, the part about Chuck was….demotivating. I was like “Okay…should I watch this?…” But then, the concert part totally made up for it! The parodies were made greatly, the animation was an eyecandy! *flies* Just DON’T freak us out with boring episodes anymore, OK? =_____=

    • Overcooled says:

      The Chuck part was worthless if you sum it up. I was ready to start my super negative post and then that song came on and suddenly everything was all sunshine and rainbows >w<

      • Namika says:

        Such a little things are needed for happiness ^O^

    • MikADo says:

      I told you Brief loses his virginity XD
      EP 10 was awesome right? i loved it XD

      • Overcooled says:

        I would only call the last 5 minutes of the episode awesome, to be honest. But damn, those 5 minutes were GREAT.

        • Namika says:

          Yeah, you’re totally right!! The last 5 minutes made up for the stupid episode……. =___=

      • Namika says:

        Yeah, first I didn’t quite catch it but……that was seriously…..awful!!!!! *_* poor Brief

  3. Alynn says:

    I… didn’t really like the Chuck part of the episode D; I found it really boring, and I almost skipped it… almost. I really didn’t get anything that was happening there and what happened at the end was especially a wtf moment for me.

    But the concert part of the episode was kickass, I agree 😀 Now I’m dying for the OST to come out. I don’t know if I can wait a month.

    I hope the next episode doesn’t have boring parts.

    • Overcooled says:

      It’s not a waste of time, but I didn’t particularly enjoy it either =/ It’s a slew of senseless violence and…brain..devils…XD But the concert, OH YES. I WANT THE OST TOOOOO

  4. Dan-go says:

    claps to you for getting all the album cover references 😀

  5. foshizzel says:

    Loved the music video ending! had to save it on youtube! also all the album covers and music video references wow so cool xD

  6. Nayu says:

    I think I’m the only one who enjoyed the Chuck part. . . For some reason I find Chuck disgustingly cute, so I liked seeing more of him, even though the whole concept was just. . .weird. Although of course it was horrible compared to the awesome concert scene.

    I hope they go back to ghost hunting next week. It’s much more interesting when they’re actually doing what they’re supposed to do. And I miss the demon sisters 🙁

    • Overcooled says:

      I don’t find him cute, probably because I compare him to Gir. And nothing surpasses Gir.

      They’re usually at their best when they’re beating stuff up, but the Stocking’s love interest episode says otherwise. It really depends on how they do it =P

  7. Junko says:

    As a part of the ‘PnS is a experimental anime where gainax decided to try some random shit out’ argument (case and point that weird yet horribly sad episode with that guy and his daughters birthday and the art’s all odd) I loved the Chuck to the Future 3 part, especially since it was a Back to the Future parody.

    Also, holy mother of anarchy, Lady Gaga AND Gorillaz in MY anime? SHIT YES.

    All ‘n’ all, awesome to see all the western parodies in this episode, rather than hundreds of japanese refferences you probs wont get unless you’re that into the culture.

    • Overcooled says:

      Oh, I definitely agree that PnS is Gainax just having the time of their lives doing whatever the hell they want. It’s great. Especially if it gives us GORILLAZ OMG YESSS (Lady Gaga I don’t care about as much, but I still loled when I saw Panty dressing up as her)

      I like the Western parodies, because it’s a given we know more Western parodies than Japanese ones. I can’t even count how many of those wordplay/pun jokes have flown over my head @[email protected] Sadly, since the audience in mind is usually Japan, we don’t get a lot of references thrown our way

  8. Gunny says:

    I sat down to watch this episode only to find out that I wasn’t in the mood for PnS… until I saw the last part. See, my face was emotionless all the time, the same thing, no amusements or things like that (even tough I like Chuck, but this just don’t seemed to fit right… it was nice still)…and then, I was like “OMG!HOLYCOW! WHAT IS THIS!!?!?” XD ! Yeah! As you see, it made my day (:: (BIG LOL for the parodies, specially the gaga’s one and the nirvana’s album *-*)
    Do I really need to say something about the OST? 8D

    • Overcooled says:

      I know, practically everyone went from deadpan to OMGGGBESTTHINGEVERRRRRRR once the concert started.

  9. MikADo says:

    I was waiting this post to come up 😀
    anticipating on how you will react bc i LOVED IT!!
    (except part B with chuck)
    part A started me laughing with Brief losing his virginity to Gaterbelt, skip part B, and part CCCCCCCCCC!!!! OMG
    i cant even describe it 😛 I’m currently watching only part C on niconico video over and over again 🙂
    It was funny how the naked part resembled K-ON, and i loved alllllll of the parodies they made XD
    oh and it was funny that the tiny anarchy sisters still defeated the demon sisters somehow in that tiny form 😛
    I look forward to every single episode of PnS 😀


    • Dan-go says:

      omg i cannot w8 for the soundtrack

    • Overcooled says:

      :3 Aww, you were waiting for me~ *ego boost +1*

      The last part was just insanely good. The naked part reminded me of Evangelion for some reason LOL. So many parodies, it was awesome~ What could they possibly do next episode, huh? Especially with the finale coming soon. Oh yeaahhhh

  10. Dan-go says:

  11. Dan-go says:

  12. Ness says:
