Panty and Stocking Ep. 7 – Because I Want to Post Stocking Screenshots
I think the above screenshot speaks for itself but, since I’ve never believed the whole “a picture is worth a thousand words” saying, I’ll add some of my own and post more screenshots of the best character in Panty and Stocking.
I’m of two minds with this show. I’m completely not surprised that I’m enjoying the fun romp that is Panty and Stocking because it’s Gainax doing the organized-chaos thing they do best but I’m also completely surprised that I find this show so much fun when I don’t normally find shows that revolve around bodily fluids and comedy funny. Maybe Gainax makes that much of a difference or maybe I just like shows that it’s impossible to know what’s going to happen next time. For example, in the first half of episode 7 …
… we get the story of what happens when two competing factions of sentient robots come to Daten City and our heroes, Stocking and Panty, get turned into robots. A shoujo robot series threatens to break-out during the course of the the story …
… but a ghost shows up and ruins the fun. (And we get yet another variation to the transformation sequence by our heroes. Sadly they only show Panty’ s part :( .)
The second half follows what happens when Stocking and Panty need to raise a load of cash in only three days. They start with those part-time jobs that seem always in need of filling like waitress, traffic cop, car washer, and geriatric nurse.
And finally as hostesses at a bar, (I knew Gainax would work in the bunny-girl suits eventually) when they learn that it’s possible to make loads of money at the casino and change for the occasion.
The only predictable thing about this show is that a ghost will inevitable show up but even then, Gainax keeps showing creativity. I think the ghost inside the casino was my most favorite yet.
Chalk up another great episode of Panty and Stocking by Gainax and I’ll have to wait another week to see what new surprises are in store.
