    About Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

    The Anarchy sisters, Panty and Stocking, are angels who were kicked out of Heaven due to bad behavior. They are sent to Daten City, a place located on the edge of Heaven and Hell, where creatures called "Ghosts" have run wild - feeding on human desire. Under the watchful eye of Reverend Garterbelt, it's up to Panty and Stocking to destroy these Ghosts, in order to collect enough Heaven Coins to return to Heaven. Only the Anarchy sisters can save humanity from these monsters and when they're not bickering with each other, they're unstoppable.


    FUNimation will release the complete series on DVD in 2012.

    Well, at least we have a general idea of when it is going to come out. Also, it's nice to finally have confirmation of a blu-ray version.

      On Blu-ray and this year, possibly not too late in it? Good enough for me right now.

        I wish there was more solid info, but any info is good info. BD is now confirmed, but I think there will be a lot of complaints about image quality on the BDs, which don't look much different than the 480p Crunchyroll streams with smoothing turned on.

            I thought they said in their rapid fire video Q&A last month that there'd be no bluray.

              Until I get around to watching the series, it's not going to be purchased...

                Why? Do the Japanese BDs have poor image quality too?

                It looks like the only way to watch it now is to subscibe to FUNi's Elite Video thingie.

                  I probably won't get it, but it's good that it's being floated out there along with the fact that no BD version is coming. And it should be pretty interesting to see what Funi decides to include as the LE item. They could do what they did with Shuffle, but I don't think that was well-received.

                    Are you sure? It was noted that it was coming soon without mentioning the format (link - noted on 1/30/12).

                      Yes. I'm sure there are screenshots floating around somewhere.

                        Here's a screenshot from the Japanese BD:

                        Looks upscaled, with lots of artificial grain.

                          What's to stop FUNi from using that master for the DVDs? I guess it doesn't really matter what format it is on at this point. FLCL all over again. Not that it will change my decision to purchase it. I've come to expect compromise with Gainax titles.

                            It looks fine to me. I'm not seeing the big deal. Maybe in motion its more of an issue but I see no issue in this.

                              It doesn't look bad to me, either. It's just not a significant upgrade from a DVD.
