All right! Things are starting to get a little bit interesting this time around, as we kick off another episodic review of Anime REvisited; with Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt! It appears that the other five episodes may or may not have led to this moment, so without further delay, here’s what went down in episode six!
Sometime after the events of episode five, Panty and Stocking are back at the school where they became the school queens after Barbie’s demise. While there they encounter a slew of ghost droids while they spend half the night eradicating them; including one annoying little female ghost. The next day the angels see their ‘fans’ all dressed up in school uniforms and wondered what the hell they were even wearing. Then Brief shows up to explain to the girls that the mayor’s daughters called the Demon (or Daemon) Sisters are now the head queens in charge of the school, and expect everyone (including them) to follow their ‘Rules’! Upon seeing this I thought that this was a pretty interesting dynamic; because usually the demons are the ones who cause chaos and anarchy while the angels uphold everything that is good, but in this case it’s the other way around.
Not even five minutes into the episode and Panty and Stocking absolutely HATE them – and rightfully so! From their dictatorship-style rules to their classism mindset, the angels eventually see themselves going head to head later on in the episode. Surely enough they do; thanks to Brief discovering a ghost factory beneath the school where they see the same ghost droids they killed actually being made. Panty and Stocking encounter Scanty and Kneesocks, the Demon Sisters, as they were the ones behind the ghost droids they killed earlier in the episode. After the usual stripper pole transformation from the angels, the demons did their own version of it; as both sides had their weapons ready for one hell of a catfight.
The school turned into a warzone, as the Anarchy Sisters and Demon Sisters went at each other with poor Brief caught in the middle. Once enough collateral damage was caused throughout the school, Brief found himself safe and sound on the rooftop – or so he thought. Scanty and Kneesocks found and threaten to kill him unless he gave back the stone, but Panty and Stocking show up and tell the demons that they really didn’t care if they kill him or not. Scanty fires off multiple rounds from her gun which Stocking blocks as the bullets destroy the demon’s weapons in a Matrix-style maneuver.
Panty tells Brief to toss the stone as she shoots it down with her weapon, thus causing the factory below to explode – taking about 95% of the school with it. Scanty and Kneesocks get away and threatened to return, leaving the angels and Brief along with the poor souls who somehow survived, in what was left of the school. At the end of the episode the Demon Sisters report back to the mayor of the city (who is a demon as well), and is disappointed by what they told him about the angels and how they lost to them. As punishment he drops them into a pool of sweat that is rather sickening to them, while the mayor talks about his run in with Garterbelt – which may or may not be an important plot piece later.
So it appears that we’re finally getting a little bit of plot from this series, but then again it could only be a ‘one-and-done’ thing, and we return right back to our original formula from the last five episodes. Guess you’ll have to wait until next review to find out, so until next post, stay healthy and stay safe guys! 🙂
