So, the Japanese have once again outdone themselves. Has anyone else seen this show? So far, it has no legal American release, except through anime streaming website Crunchyroll.com. It’s pretty new.
It has become my favorite anime series of all time. Two bounty-hunting fallen angels battle ghosts on Earth (when they’re not fighting each other). It is hilariously vulgar - not in the ‘graphic sex and nudity’ sense, but in the ‘sexual dialogue and profanity’ sense. It’s like a traditional Western Cartoon Network show, but without the forbidden subjects.
Panty and Stocking (sisters) are the hunters, and each can turn the article of clothing she’s named after into a holy ghost-killing weapon. Garterbelt is the large black priest (with a massive 'fro) who advises them.
Imagine Charlie’s Angels + the Powerpuff Girls, as written by Kevin Smith.
My favorite episodes so far are a toss-up between Transhomers, which is their spot-on Transformers parody, and 1 Angry Ghost, which has hilarious nods to Ren and Stimpy and Phoenix Wright.
