It's not what you think... I think.

After the release of the Gurren Lagann Parallel Works DVD, Gainax announced a new project from the TTGL team that was initially titled Pansuto, the Japanese term for “Panties and Stockings.” Thanks to a Newtype blurb, we now know way more about this project, and it’s less like Chu-Bra than everyone initially thought.

It turns out that Panty and Stocking are actually the names of characters in the newly titled Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, and not necessarily descriptions of the content. I wouldn’t put it past Gainax to make exciting underwear a prominent feature of the show in addition to naming the characters after them, though. Anyway, Panty and Stocking are two angels who come down to earth in order to fight rampaging enemies known as Ghosts. Together, they work on fighting the Ghost menace.

Will this be any good? Who knows? All we know is contained in a paragraph that describes Panty as a “Blond celeb” and Stocking as a “black-haired gothic lolita.” But hey, the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann crew earned some interest in their next project after a strong first outing. With Imaishi and Yoshinari at the helm, there’s a lot of potential already – this is definitely a project to watch, with the Gainax name and some rising stars attached to it.

WOOOOOW. “Anyway, Panty and Stocking are two angels who come down to earth in order to fight rampaging enemies known as Ghosts. Together, they work on fighting the Ghost menace.” Never saw that coming as the type of show it was going to be. That kind of plot reminds me of “Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-Chan!!” where the two people would come from somewhere else and “help” earth.
