Panty Anarchy News

Panty Anarchy is a anime/manga character in the Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt franchise

I have never been able to put into words why I dislike battle threads so much until now. It's because underlying all Battle threads is aggression. It puts two characters from two different anime and reduces them to ONE characteristic, their power.

Instead of having Battle threads, why don't we have "Friend threads"? Take two characters from different anime and consider how likely or unlikely they are to become friends, or get along, and explaining why. This would involve a deeper consideration of each character's personality, behavior and psychology, and would NOT reduce each character to just their power.

For example:

  • Fat Buu (after he turns good) and Ash's Pikachu: I think they might make good friends and could learn a lot from each other. Buu is kind of like a big kid who doesn't know his own strength. And Pikachu having traveled for ages with Ash, gained a strong sense of morality and life lessons, could teach a lot to Buu!
  • Saeko Busujima and Nico Robin: They have both suffered in interesting ways, and to a certain extent are both trying to reach out to others and make friends. They are both somewhat on the quiet side also. I think they might develop a sense of respect for each other, each having their own capabilities, maybe developing a sisterly bond. Saeko with her sword discipline and Nico having all that archaeology knowledge.
  • Panty and Revy: Both hot-headed and deadly. They probably would NOT make good friends at all. BUT perhaps if they were faced with a common enemy they could set aside their differences for a few moments, do some good-old kick-assery and in the end form some sort of truce... while still holding each other with some amount of disdain. :D

I think maybe part of the reason Battle threads are getting out of hand is because of the inherent aggression that underlies them. If we flip the switch and start making "Friend threads" I think it could make these forums a lot more warm and enjoyable for everyone. For me at least it seems a lot more fun and positive to consider how two characters might become friends than to consider how they might beat each other up. But again this is just an idea.

Perhaps we could create a new concept page for these "Friend threads" and go from there. If it were up to me I would abolish Battles threads entirely, have Friend threads as a replacement, and put more focus behind discussion threads and encouraging users to post their thoughts about the anime they're watching. But hey this is just an idea, take from it what you will. And as always, enjoy your anime!

Come get a better look at this summer's biggest anime release on DVD.

Though the anime PANTY & STOCKING WITH GARTERBELT is having a rather tenuous release with FUNimation Entertainment being blocked from releasing the series on Blu-ray by Kadokawa Pictures. We can be excited that we get our first look at the DVD box art for this July release.

The Anarchy Sisters do more than just curse in English now, but why no Blu-ray?!

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt (2010)
Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt (2010)

The raunchy, western influenced GAINAX anime Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt tore through the anime scene in late 2010 and took everyone by surprise. It was simulcast on Crunchyroll, but was taken down after FUNimation Entertainment obtained the licensing rights. They would eventually host the thirteen episode comedy series to their FUNi Elite members only, and it left many of us P&S fans dying to know when we'd get a US release and Dub cast. Well, turns out that's today.

It was on Saturday 28 at Anime Central that FUNimation at their Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt Focus Panel they finally revealed their US dub cast to take on the role of the fallen angels and assorted others. The release date is for July 10th 2012. Sure to be a smoking hot summer release. Panty will be played by Jamie Marchi (who has voiced Charlotte E. Yeager and Liz Thompson) and Stocking will be done by Monica Rial (who has voiced May Chang and Tashigi). Full Cast listing can be found HERE

Hold up! Maybe we'll just have to wait for Blu-ray.

The most surprising part of this news is that on FUNimation's own news page about their releases through July lists Panty & Stocking being on DVD only. The Japanese production was distributed in both DVD and BD. Oddly enough, other FUNi released for Shiki, Dragon Age The Movie, and Ouran High School Host Club are offering Blu-ray. Back at Anime Boston, FUNimation had promised the audience a DVD/BD release, but that was all changed when Kadokawa Pictures began restricting the international licensors of many series to drop all Blu-ray releases for this calendar year. Their reasoning behind the decision is unknown and has caused some fans to cancel their original pre-orders for series that they were originally promised for Blu-ray.

Now, this doesn't mean there will never be a Blu-ray release outside of Japan. Kadokawa has just not yet allowed licensors to release Blu-ray. So far, we know it just wont be happening this year. Kadokawa's latest mandate seems foolhardy when you consider that the U.S. audience has been slowly favoring Blu-ray over DVD in the past few years. It just seems to be in our nature that we want our products to be of the highest possible quality available to us. You really have to wonder what got into Kadokawa's head that they wouldn't want to offer a product that people are begging to buy from you. I was personally very excited for this, but I really think you could count me among those who would rather just wait for Blu-ray. How about the rest of you?

The entire series can now be pre-ordered on Amazon.com HEREfor $49.99 USD and Rightstuf.com HERE(Limited Edition) for $38.99 USD, but Amazon prices have known to drop on pre-orders as the release date nears. Paid Elite members of FUnimation's website can watch the entire series run on their website HERE

It's been a long time coming, today FUNimation finally announced the dub cast for Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, the delightfully ridiculous and rude Gainax title. Instead of rambling on though I'll let Gangsta Afro Piccolo do the talking:

The credits and voices released are as follows:

Apparently FUNimation won't be releasing the show on Blu-Ray, but in my opinion standard definition will probably do just fine. Are you interested in checking out the FUNimation release?
