Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt – 13 [END]

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 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!

    Mmmm Troll ending Woooo! jk ending was a bit of a shock and a wtf moment thrown in with Stockings character switch! good thing there is another season in the works 😀

    GOD MY OH! to funny XD

    Fun series a few miss episodes for me and random episodes, but had me laughing the whole way through!

    • Overcooled says:

      Yeah, you better not be happy with a troll ending lol. PnS was very hit or miss, but in the end it pulled through.

  2. Zyl says:

    I enjoyed PSG a lot, particularly the movie parodies (at least for those movies that I actually did watch before) and the interaction between the two heroines.

    The whole thing about Stocking actually being a demon didn’t make sense at all – how could she go back to Heaven if she was a demon? Isn’t she also Panty’s sister and they have the same Momma? But, in all fairness to Gainax/Geek, you could see some warning signs – for example, why did Stocking suddenly return in this episode? And if you look at what happened in the course of the fight, the angels actually helped to cause Brief to become erect enough and to be inserted into the keyhole and opened the gate.

    • Overcooled says:

      I liked it too. Once Scanty and Kneesocks were introduced, things got a lot better. Even the parodies got better.

      Stocking as a demon is really inconsistent. You’d have to really stretch the truth to make it work. The only way I can see it working is that being a demon is by blood, it’s by some sort of choice. So she may have chosen to be a demon when she came back to help Panty at that second. STILL, she said “I’m a demon” while in her angel clothes AND wielding her angel weapons so…bleh. I give up. Maybe she’s lying and will double-cross Corset?

      I still don’t get why Panty didn’t catch Brief. They still fought the monster they summoned in the end, but they didn’t seem to care that the Hellgate was opened. Not sure how much to brush off as the typical PnS inconsistency or if it really means something =P

    • Overcooled says:

      I had one with Panty surrounded by things screwing each other, but went against it in the end. Instead you get spam of more action-y shots XD

      lol PnS is so whacky, that line seemed SO NORMAL in the episode…Now that I’m not watching it, I realize how ridiculous this all is :3

  3. Ness says:

    WTF Ending, srsly. Now there’s going to be new fan-pics of Stocking or maybe there already is!! Demon Stocking~ But yes, maybe she has a hidden agenda, like under cover.

    Other than that, I’d say the series wasn’t too bad. Lots of laughs along the way. It’s one of those shows that you shouldn’t have to think much on and just enjoy the humor.

    • Overcooled says:

      I’ll have to hunt around pixiv for that. God knows an explosion of demon sister yuri was out right when the last episode aired. XD

  4. Reika says:

    Really, I never imagined my brain would explode on Christmas, but, yeah, we’ve been all GAINAX’D

    Still, I’m glad I picked up this anime. The style turned me off at first, but I grew to love it <3


    …Or something like that ;D

    • Overcooled says:

      If the next season has more demon sisters then HELLS YESSSSS. It might be worth getting Gainax’d if that happens then XD

      I don’t regret picking this show up either!

  5. Will says:

    I really went WTF when the big foot came out of the sky.
    At that point, I was sort of expecting something to fall from the sky, but… a half naked women’s foot?!?!?

    Anyway, this show was great, cause I laughed, don’t ask any other explanations, I lack the ability of understanding and explaining my own opinion.

    WTF ending FTW (lol mirror WTF-FTW)

    • Overcooled says:

      That foot was the most random thing ever…Gainax…really outdid themselves there. @_@

      lol you don’t understand your own opinion? XD I forgive you, Christ. There’s not much to explain anyways, PnS isn’t exactly the type of show people like because it’s deeply emotional or anything.


  6. Eri says:

    Gah, I’ll have to stand out with my weird opinions again… XD

    Actually, even though the ending was the troll of the season, I liked it! That’s because I like it when PnS makes a GRAND twist in the plot and because I would really love to see a second season! It’s always sad to see a series you like end, despite its trolls and WTF-moments.

    About Stocking (my eternal favorite) I don’t know how I would like to be now. On the one hand, if she really is a demon then that means we would get to see an EPIC StockingxPanty fighting action. On the other hand, if Stocking turns out to be double-crossing Corset it would just make Stocking be EVEN MORE clever and malicious than she already proved to be.

    Of course, everything said above is based on the fact that there will be a second season! If it turns out the other way… I don’t know; I give up! I want more PnS action on my weekly schedule!!!

    So yeah, ROCK ON!

    • Overcooled says:

      You liked the troll ending? You’re an odd one, you are. The promise of a second season cheered me up a bit though. :3

      Either way, Stocking wins. I kind of wish a character would ACTUALLY DIE without reviving on this show for dramatic effect. If Stocking died then whoaaa, that’d be intense. Unless they troll and kill her first episode of season 2 LOL. Let’s wait and see what happens =D

  7. Kyokai says:

    I agree with Will here: WTF-FTW~

    Gainax is famous for trolling their audience with a twisted end. I seriously went HOW THE FUCK STOCKING COULD BE A DEMON? But oh well, we will see or not see.

    Congrats for ending another series. xD

  8. Captain says:

    Gainax did come up with the entire PnS idea when they were drunk, so I’m not surprised they animated the whole last episode in the same state.

    I love how Panty and Stocking’s mother is a pair of giant legs wearing a panty and stockings. It’s just.. pffsh.

    I don’t really expect a season 2, but from what I hear they’ve got a director list for 27 episodes, so there might be one. You never know!

    At least Corset’s dead. Enough with the bondage, seriously.

    • Overcooled says:

      *facepalm* Of course you’d do this Gainax, of course///

      I hope there’s a body attached to those legs, or that’d just be weird (as if coming from the sky wasn’t weird already)

  9. amado says:

    even though I dropped this, it does make sense that stocking is a demon or at least explains why she fell in love with a ghost among other things…

    • Overcooled says:

      Noooo, it still doesn’t make sense…At least from what I can see. Even a demon falling in love with a Ghost seems odd.

  10. tariii says:

    omg. mind-blowing O_O

  11. Gunny says:

    the thing is that this episode was alright for me… until Chuck unzipped itself and my mouth fell open for the rest of the episode. Then they missed that shoot and I tought it was dead end for the angels… but hey, we are talkin’ about P&S, and so that woman in white langerie came down from the sky and made the peace rule again. Now we’ve got a happy “ending”, wich would be a good end for any cool series… Then, again, this is GAINAX I’m talkin’ about, and they give us the true troll end with Panty begin slashed in 666 pieces by Stocking and the last reveling that she is a demon (on more for the team \o/)… am I the only one who prefer it this way? And this is how it ends for real. I do belive that Gainax isn’t going to make a next season, ‘cuz the the end was too random continue it… oh wait, we’re talking about P&S, There’s no need to follow the plot. (:

    And, this is it, a lol ending for a lol serie… maybe the end was a parody of the show itself? who knows? =o
    I liked this show. No we’ve only got to wait for the OST to come out. \o/

    • Gunny says:

      …and the last reveAling that she is a demon (onE more for the team \o/)*
      I’m sleepy, so pardon me D8

    • Overcooled says:

      I loved the episode up until the troll part. I see that a few people (not just you) actually LIKED the last 30 seconds of the episode, which baffles me.

      I’m wondering if this is supposed to be a parody of how other anime always end off with a lame twist to get another season aired too, but I don’t think Gainax is that clever XD

      OST YES.

  12. cassi says:

    Best ending ever! 😀 I was little bit confused by the Heidi!Panty in the beginning. Why are we on a farm? But the moment, Panty was her bitchy self again, the episode rocked. I was a bit disappointed by the seemingly happy-end. It didn’t fit. PaS is crazy and unique and a simple happy-end would just not be the show I’ve been watching for 13 episodes. If there is no second season, very likely, the giant WTF-ending is just that, the best WTF ending and a parody of all WTF endings at the same time.

  13. jenny says:

    I know I’m a little late but I was under the impressions that wasn’t the REAL Stocking. Just a demon disguised as her. O_O Was I wrong?

    • Overcooled says:

      That could be true, but then where is the real Stocking as this betrayal is going down? I don’t think she’d take kindly to an imposter. It would make the ending less of a troll though, that’s for sure. Sadly, there’s no way to tell unless Gainax actually makes a second season D=

  14. maplenihongo says:

    Stocking just came back from Heaven. She’s on a mission. There is SOME reason she HAD to cut up Panty, maybe to awaken her true powers, sort of like Brief’s powers were awakened. She’s a double agent, but in the end, she’s on the side of Heaven. I like the idea of the Demons and the Anarchy Sisters working together as well. I just cannot accept my little goth Angel has really turned evil! (well eviler than she already was…)
