Gratuitous exposure of a character's panties, possibly the biggest fan service concept in anime and manga.


A Panty Shot refers to when someone's panties are shown, usually unintentionally. This can happen in a number of ways, the most common of which include wind flipping a skirt or someone bending over, revealing their underwear. People who don't wear skirts or dresses aren't guaranteed safe haven from the dreaded Panty Shot either, as other types of clothes can, on occasion, slip or get pulled down.

Anime & Manga

Panty Shots began to appear as early as the 1950s or 60s and have become a staple of fan service-themed anime and manga. It's arguably the most recurring fan service concept in the entire medium. Characters are usually deeply embarrassed when their panties are seen by others, though some are completely oblivious to it.

Notable Examples

  • Agent Aika basically revolves around the concept, showing several Panty Shots per episode. In many cases, there are groups of girls on-screen with their panties on show all at once, mainly due to the fact that the skirts they wear are often absurdly short.
  • Sekirei has Panty Shots in virtually every episode of the anime, most frequently during fight scenes. The female characters in the franchise show extremely little concern or embarrassment, often happy to walk around naked, let alone in their underwear.
  • Is this a Zombie? features comical Panty Shots of Ayumu when he is forced to cross-dress.
  • In K-ON!, Mio suffers a particularly embarrassing Panty Shot on stage during a performance with her band. This is censored in the anime, which shows a blue and white striped rice bowl to represent her panties. This is the only Panty Shot in the series and isn't purely for fan service, but also presents Mio with a hurdle she must overcome to help with her shyness and nerves when she performs on stage.
