Panty and Stocking return with even more outlandish sexual jokes and lingerie fighting battles in Episode 2 of Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt. Things get even more hilarious this episode then the last. I repeat - This show is not for kids.
“The Clamor of The Beehive”
The first half of the episode gives us a taste of what high school life would be if Panty and Stocking were in our school; It would be awesome. For a high school infiltration mission it’s quite obvious both the girls have no idea what the word means; more or so Panty then Stocking, but even Stocking seems to not fully understand the meaning.
All though the girls may not be the smartest in the world, they have some hell of a fashion sense! Panty and Stocking’s school clothing was pretty damn flashing; once again proves they both have now idea what “Infiltration” means. But with those kind of looks, it doesn’t really matter I guess. Once again, like last episode, we get a close up and a more anime-esque close up of Panty in her school uniform get-up, which I loved but was disappointed we didn’t see one of Stocking since I liked her ensemble better then Panty’s. But I’ll take some then none at all.
It seems that even in anime’s like Panty and Stocking the same school rules apply: The nerds, the cheerleaders, the jocks, and the evil bitch known as the “Queen Bee”. I had my fun seeing the entire high school system of social government being destroyed by Panty and Stocking, and becoming the new “it” girls of high school. The scene where Panty was teaching all the girls her signature pose made me laugh and made me wish the entire season revolved around a high school setting. It’s common sense that when you take over someone’s turf, you’re bound to piss someone off, which is exactly what happens when Queen Barbie is completely forgotten and Panty and Stocking become the “it” thing around school, spawning posters and dolls for young high school males to keep in their lockers. Creepy, I know.
The fight with Queen Barbie, who was incidentally the ghost they were supposed to kill (No big surprise there, right?) was actually very cool with the combination of Panty’s and Stocking’s duo attack. It also felt like there was another Gurren Lagann parody with the bee stinger attack that Queen Barbie launches.
With Queen Barbie dead, Panty celebrates with a full on …uhhh…6-way with the entire football team. It wouldn’t be an episode without her having sex in some way, right? I’d also like to point out at this point that I “Lmao” when Panty mistakes the condom for a piece of gum. Epic.
“Sex And The Daten City”
There are 2 obvious things in this second half of the episode.
1. Being how popular these girls are, it’s no surprise that nobody would have offered them a movie deal in their city.
2. Panty being in a porno is of absolutely no surprise to anyone. ANYONE.
If the first half of the episode didn’t get you laughing, the second half surely will. I’m not sure If I would ever watch any movie starring Panty and Stocking, or a movie with the title of “Sex And The Daten City” — which is obviously a reference to the Sex In The City movie — but the people in Panty’s and Stocking’s universe sure would. If I could compare Panty to anyone in the star industry, it would most likely be Paris Hilton. Why? They’re both pretty open with their slutty image. Panty more so than Paris, and they both have their porno movies.
Like I stated in the beginning of this post, I don’t think it came as a surprise to anyone that Panty’s first and debut film was a porno. I’m pretty sure that’s what we all expected when she popped in the video tape. With their movie careers in danger, they set out on a quest to find and destroy every one of Panty’s porn videos to prevent them from the evil upload-ation into the internet! How her porno got so far as to Paris, India and even space is left to the imagination. Also, Panty would obviously have sex in the “City of Love”.
It’s also in this episode that we learn Stocking is actually the younger sister of the two, which I find makes a bit of sense, but also shows just how stupid Panty is to be less responsible than Stocking. I also found it funny that all of her movie fans were goth kids. Don’t worry Stocking, I like you better then Panty!
After all the help Stocking gave Panty in the retrieving of the videos, I found her bitch move of removing Stocking from the film really messed up. Fortunately, Stocking had a revenge plan of her own and uploaded the porn video on the most notorious of all sites - Youtobe. The episode ends in a “relaxing” moment. :)
P.S: Stocking’s sweets blog was adorable!
I enjoyed this episode so much more than the first. The jokes were funnier, the slut references were more well thought out, and I loved the song playing during the school montage. Animation was spot on, and I can honestly say I have high hopes for this series. Gainax has not failed me yet! I wasn’t a fan of the art style like many others but I can honestly say that it is really warming up to me. Also, I really like the ending song, it’s very relaxing. If the series keeps this level of entertainment up, I might actually go to call it the best anime of this season. 4.0 rating for a very awesome episode! Tissues anyone? :)
