Found on the official Voltron store:

Note the careful placement of the light flare.

Yes, these are Voltron boxer shorts.

I have already ordered two.


Ore no T-shirt!

You have to be in a certain state of mind to enjoy Arakawa Under the Bridge, and watching a man in a star mask playing the guitar certainly sets the mood well. The official site has posted a brief trailer for the upcoming second season, which as usual tells you nothing about what will actually happen in the new season. Based on past history, though, expect it to be strange, wacky, and very much out of the cutesy mainstream.

I’m lookin’ forward to it so much… well… check after the jump for how much I’m lookin’ forward to it.

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.
