Anime Vice News

Panty & Stocking Preview Video is Here

Gainax is making a cartoon. A real home grown cartoon.

Would you have believed me if I told you a year ago that Gainax’s next show would be a cartoon? You might not at first, but would then realize that it is Gainax that we are talking about here and understand that they do the impossible. We have been talking about this show for awhile, but now we have the opportunity to take a look at what this anime will look like in motion.

Gainax is going all out with this one, holding nothing back it seems. It’s like the love child of FLCL and Powerpuff Girls, hell it looks like it belongs right on Cartoon Network. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to see Gainax’s approach at creating their interpretation of an American cartoon. I hope my body can take it.

The anime will be 26 episodes long, but 12 minutes each. But don’t worry, they will broadcast 2 episodes together, so it will be like watching a real 24 minute anime, but on crack. Watch the trailer now!

Why is Gainax doing this? 
WTF is up with the animation?
Eelcireon Sept. 8, 2010 at 12:46 p.m.
Wow. Certainly caught my attention, want more.
CapeBarneson Sept. 8, 2010 at 12:57 p.m.
It's nice to see an anime that looks different, blah blah blah. 
Me want!

Didn't think we'd catch that did you, GodLen?
 
Obscure internet allusions aside, this is Gainax, and they're pretty good at making something ridiculous, but meaningful. FLCL is proof of that. So...yeah. This actually looks cool. I can't help but think of the Powerpuff Girls Z when I see this animation, though. Who's knows? This could be a hit.

I give Gainax credit for the anime it's put out but this seems to be atrocious. This is one Fall show I'm not checking out as it's too American for an anime (along with the new Iron Man anime) and looks and feels to be utterly stupid.

Looks crazy.  A little crazy can be good.  I'll give it a shot.
REDRUNon Sept. 8, 2010 at 2:51 p.m.
It looks more insane than FLCL and Dead Leaves.... Dude, I am with this for the wild ride.
CrazyCanuckon Sept. 8, 2010 at 2:53 p.m.
awsome!
constanzadellarosaon Sept. 8, 2010 at 3:27 p.m.
'what the hell are these guys are smoking lately?' was my first thought.
 
FLCL looks perfectly sensible and sane compared to this. Let's see if Gainax can push the envelope again.

This looks out of this world, its like powerpuff girls if it were made by a coked up japanese person. 
Aside from that this lookjs good can't wait to watch!

@Kelleth:
Gainax has copped to the dog character being a direct homage to Gir, and that Jhonen Vasquez approves. YAY!!!

I think it looks awful. I could be wrong, but that trailer was bad.

That's my opinion.  The first concept art a few months ago got me interested in the show.  The concept seemed ridiculous for the art style and it only got better when ANN had an article where someone involved in the production said something like, "the animation director is going all out as much as possible on the fight scenes."

From what i got Chuck's only reason to exist is to experience pain in hilarious ways kinda like Gonzo but without liking it... why did Jhonen agreed to this again? lol 
 
This anime is pretty much about two girls who take orders from an anime ''Jules'' to hunt ghosts, Stokings is a sweet tooth goth and Panty is slut who likes to snu snu
I'm liking this anime already even though the trailer makes no sense XD
Bigheart711on Sept. 9, 2010 at 7:50 a.m.
This looks real awesome even though the trailer's non-sequitir. I'm definitely gonna love this!
almeidaon Sept. 9, 2010 at 8:06 a.m.

ComradeCrashon Sept. 9, 2010 at 8:07 a.m.
This looks so crazy that I want to watch it now. Awesome trailer!
