Anime Summary Review: Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt Episodes 10, 11, and 12

Rather than the longer reviews with all sorts of pictures and such, this is just a quick summary review. For a series that I’ve already been watching for several episodes, there’s not much of a reason to go into much detail. At this point in the series, you’re either still watching it (so you already know what’s going on and a long detailed run-down of everything is not really needed), or don’t care. So, without further ado:

PS&G Episode 10 – Part 1: Panty and Stocking are shrunk down and accidentally get swallowed by Brief, where the wreak havoc on his insides. Part 2: Chuck gets into an extended battle with Fastener. Part 3: Music video of Panty and Stocking on stage.
My thoughts: Crap, crap, crap, utter crap…and a music video. This episode is nothing but shitty filler material, a complete waste of time. The whole extended Chuck bit was so awful that I just fast-forwarded through the most of it. I would only want to re-watch the music video, but that was just an animated song, no story at all. Why they aired this piece-of-crap episode is beyond me.

PS&G Episode 11 – Part 1: Panty and Stocking uncover Garterbelt’s secret diary, which explains his dark past, his resurrection and how he spent eons walking the Earth. Part 2: Fixed-camera scene with Panty and Stocking sitting around watching television, waiting for Garterbelt to cook them a big meal.
My thoughts: Oh boy, more crap! I really don’t care about that sick pedo Garterbelt in the first place. And the second part felt like it was thrown together in about half a day, just the girls sitting around shooting shit at each other. A real chore to sit through, my opinion of this show has dropped a couple of notches.

PS&G Episode 12 – Part 1: A quick wrap-up of the previous episodes, dictated by Scanty and Kneesocks as they go over the various ghosts they have unleashed on the Heavenly duo. Part 2: They’ve finally collected enough Heaven coins, and Stocking is instantly sucked up to Heaven, leaving Panty behind. She’s been rejected by Heaven because of her behavior, and she has to start all over again…this time with Brief. Added difficulty: She’s also forbidden from having any sex, even though she’s one lay away from her goal of fucking a thousand men. At a party she discovers a new side to Brief, decides to bed him and is thwarted by her inability to have intercourse, and also learns that Brief’s penis is actually the key to the destruction of Daten City…literally.
My thoughts: Finally, something happens that’s worth talking about. Stop the presses, actual plot and development! With Stocking gone, Panty is (bad pun warning) left in a bind, her angel hymen restored preventing her from what she does best, also completely wilting her powers as well. Up until now, she’s been nothing but a filthy-mouthed slut, completely unsympathetic, but the tables have turned. Plus who would have thought that Brief would have been the key to everything? Looks like the final thirteenth episode will be a wild ride, although the utter crap of the previous two episodes have left a sour taste in my mouth so I’m no longer woo-woo-gung-ho over the show anymore.
