About

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt (パンティ&ストッキングwithガーターベルト Panti ando Sutokkingu wizu Gātāberuto), usually abbreviated to either PASWG, or PSG, is a Japanese television series by Gainax, which among other things, parodies the American style of animation.

The series became very popular due to its interesting, and realtively cute visual style, combined with crude humour, containing excessive amounts of swearing, sexual themes, toilet humour, and pop-culture references. Panty and Stocking is sometimes thought of as the japanese counterpart of South Park.

The fandom behind Panty and Stocking has produced large amounts of fanart, cosplay, and video parodies. The templates depicting the characters have also become popular source of fanmade material.

Origin

Panty & Stocking aired in Japan during October 1, 2010 and December 24, 2010.

The Story

From Wikipedia

The Anarchy sisters, Panty and Stocking, are angels who were kicked out of Heaven due to their bad behavior. They are sent to Daten City (a pun on the Japanese word datenshi (堕天使, lit. “Fallen Angel”)), a place located on the edge of Heaven and Hell. Strange monsters called “Ghosts” besiege the city, but the Anarchy sisters wield a variety of mysterious powers, most notably their ability to transform their underwear and stockings into weapons.

Under the watchful eye of Reverend Garterbelt, and with their pet zipper-dog Chuck, it’s up to Panty and Stocking to destroy these Ghosts, in order to collect enough Heaven Coins to return to Heaven.

Memetic Usage

Fly Away – Transformation Scene

One of the most common targets of parodies, is the transformation scene of Panty and Stocking, from the very first episode. The template portraying Panty and Stocking in this particular scene, became a popular base for character swapping, but people also started altering the scene itself with characters from other anime, and various videogames.

The song “Fly Away” has also been used in videos entitled “Fly Away Goes With Everything”, which is identical to Guile’s Theme Goes With Everything.

In the first part of episode 4, called “The Diet Syndrome” (Daietto Shindorōmu (ダイエット・シンドローム), Panty discovers that Stocking is on a diet, which Stocking claimed to be something she never has to go on. After the original airing of the episode, more and more parodies of the scene popped up. The main components of the videos include Panty’s over exaggerated expression as she asks about the diet, and Stocking’s horrific reaction.

The scene became popular in the hands of people making YouTube Poop Music Videos.



Video Examples



Ruuruu

The demon sisters Scanty and Kneesocks, who act as the antagonists of the series, have an obsession with rules, making them repeat the word numerous times throughout the series. Since the voice cast is japanese, the phrase has the typical engrish feel to it, and they pronounce “Rule” as “Ruuruu”. Since the corrupt line is repeated numerous times, it became somewhat of a catchphrase related to the demon sisters.

The Day Gainax Ruined Xmas

In the final scene, Stocking is wondering whether or not their weapons are effective against Angels and Devils as well. Panty then stated that she might as well test it out, and Stocking obliged, backstabbing Panty in the head, slicing her apart, and then revealed that she’s “actually a demon”.

This scene became one of the most infuriating scenes, as it parodies Gainax Ending to a negative degree. The scene is thought to be made just to troll the watchers.
