The word パンツ (pronounced Pantsu ) is Japanese for “panties,” and is likely an engrish version of the word. There are also other variants such as 縞パン (“Shimapan”, striped panties), 見せパン (Misepan), パンモロ (Panmoro), etc.
Pantsu can be used to describe upskirt, thigh exposure, or related fetishes in the anime genre, or to describe such obscenities in a way mocking otaku.
The widespread word “Pantsu” had possibly been derived from the word Panchira (パンチラ, “glimpse” of panty). The rise of underwear fashion most likely came from legendary white dress photos of Marilyn Monroe during early cultural interaction between the eastern and western worlds in 1955. As a result of this meeting between advertisement, it’s undergarment based sexualization, and cultural interactions, a recurring trend of underwear found a home in manga/anime culture.
The Japan eroge subculture has always taken up a portion of the internet, especially on the anonymous imageboards such as the Japanese 2channel and western 4chan.
