Scanty is a demon and one half of the Scanty and Kneesocks duo.
Scanty and Kneesocks are the daughters of Mr. Mayor and are sent by him to eliminate Panty and Stocking. They share many similarities with the duo such as powers, an off-road vehicle, guns, bladed weapons, sidekicks and a transformation sequence. Scanty is Kneesocks' older sister.
Scanty was created for the Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt anime series that was produced by Gainax, directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi, and it originally began airing on October 1, 2010. She and the rest of the cast were designed by Atsushi Nishigori.
She first appeared in Panty & Stocking - Episode 6 "Les Diaboliques", and became one of the few reoccurring villains of the series. She was voiced by the Japanese voice actress Yuka Komatsu, and the U.S. dub produced by FUNimation is done by Colleen Clinkenbeard.
Scanty has red skin as well as fangs. She has light green, spiky hair that she almost always wears down, two horns on the top of her head, and green and yellow eyes that are rounder than her sister's. As for attire, she wears a rather plain uniform.
Scanty is obsessed with rules, regulations, and conformity, as opposed to Panty and Stocking's more erratic and unruly behavior. She is, however, quite excitable, and becomes extremely frustrated when things don't go her way, though her excitability during such situations often unintentionally leads to their downfall, as seen in Episode 8 when she jumps for joy, unknowingly spilling the demonic zombie serum and in Episode 9 when she, accidentally, pushes the self-destruct button in her limo out of rage. She is a high-class lady, though she enjoys bringing pain and humiliation to others. Along with her sister, she comes up with various schemes to kill or otherwise humiliate Panty and Stocking.
Scanty fights using a pair of revolvers known as Double Gold Lacy Tanga.
While Panty and Stocking are away on missions, the two sisters become the new queens and use their influence to a series of strict rules on the student body aimed and creating strict order and normality. When Panty and Stocking return, the two side clash and an epic battle ensues.
Disguised as a talk show host, Scanty was a part of a plan to frame Panty & Stocking for the murder of Mr. Husband Petter. The plan fell to pieces when Mr. Abrams, the World's Smartest Monkey Lawyer, was able to find the true criminal and expose the real identities of the show's host and ace attorney Tom Croose (Scanty & Kneesocks respectively).
