A new listing for the Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt anime series has appeared on Amazon.com, this one for the Blu-Ray version of the show. This is a surprising development as the Blu-Ray version was initially announced earlier this year, then dropped from solicitations and initial release when the series was released on home video earlier this Summer.
With Kadokawa Pictures initially holding back all Blu-Ray releases until next year, the sudden appearance of a Blu-Ray listing on Amazon may indicate a change in what Funimation was allowed to release. Either way, this is a positive development, provided the listing and the release date hold up. The series was initially broadcast in 2010 and is best known for its crass and vulgar humor with Gainax’s signature animation work. Funimation added to the humor by producing one of its best English dubs for the series, with rumblings that a second dub was produced for a possible TV broadcast.

Panty and Stocking – the Anarchy Sisters – are two nasty angels who got booted from the pearly gates for being foul-mouthed bitches! Now they spend their days blowing up ghosts in the lecherous abyss between Heaven and Earth. Panty likes sex, Stocking likes sweets, their afro-sporting main man Garter Belt has a fetish we can’t mention. Together, they’re keeping the streets free of bodily fluids. Ghosts don’t have a prayer against their panty pistols and stocking swords, and if this debaucherous duo can collect enough Heaven Coins, they just might get their halos back. They’ve got a slim chance in hell, but rolling commando is the best way to get lucky – especially with Panty and Stocking!
