Wow. In just a year, there will actually be English voices to go with all this English dialogue
That's right folks! This week in "Popular Anime Confirmed for U.S. Release by Company Who Makes A Habit of Releasing Good, Popular Anime," FUNimation has finally let the cat out of the bag
that you won't need to buy ridiculously over-priced imported Blu-rays of Gainax's latest anime franchise. Sadly, people will have to wait until 2012 for the DVD to come out, but Crunchyroll still hasn't remembered to take the videos off their site
(despite it still having that message that it'd be off "thirty days after the release of the final episode").
It's been a while since I randomly wrote my review on the series, so I recently watched a few of my favorite episodes to make sure I wasn't too crazy off College-Finals-Week-Energy-Drinks to actually think this show was good. And you know what? This show -- despite certain bits being especially annoying when watched a second time (i.e. 75% of episode 10) -- is still a vulgar good time with the Anarchy Sisters. I even bought the amazing
soundtrack from Play-Asia and still listen to tracks like Champion and the Scanty & Kneesocks Theme on a regular basis. If you haven't checked out it out yet (albeit those who are at least 17 years of age), please do since it is both funny and consistently pleasing to the eyes. FUNimation does tend to be the "cool" U.S. anime distributor who takes 99% of the good new anime, but their work on comedies like Oh! Edo Rocket
makes me glad they have this to call their own. I have high hopes that Panty & Stocking
will be a treat in both subs and dubs come next year.
