So we’re closing in on the final couple of days of the month of June; meaning that the third quarter of what has been a crazy year, has finally arrived. Hopefully everyone is doing well, staying safe as well as sane, in these trying times of which we live in. With July around the corner, here’s a quick blog briefing of what we’ve got going on!
Anime REvisited Gets Chivalrous!
That’s right! Anime REvisited returns with our newest pick; Chivalry of a Failed Knight! Honestly, this series needs more love, so why not do an episode by episode review on the series as a whole – in hopes that somewhere down the line we get a second season! It’s an underrated gem that got swept under the radar, so we will be reviewing it.
Paper Mario: Origami King is Coming!!
With 21 days left until the new game drops, we’ll be filling you in on what we know so far about it. We promise we won’t spoil too much info, but you’ll be happy to know once this game comes out, we’ll be buying a Switch and playing it! We might even stream some gameplay too!
The Return of Throwback Thursday!!
You guys might remember a little segment that we did called D&A’s Throwback Thursday, where we did overviews on anime titles from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and early 2000’s. We’ve decided to bring this segment back as a special request, so if you haven’t gotten the chance to see the titles that we announce, you’ll definitely wanna see em’ after this!
Cons Near U: Online Edition 2020!
With COVID-19 shooting down the entire Summer convention season, many of us are having con withdraw (us included). Now digital conventions are popping up all over the place in hopes of curbing our con appetite. In July we’ll be searching all over for digital anime conventions that you can go to (many of which are free), and nerd out with hundreds of your online otaku friends. Yeah, 2020 sucks, but once conventions come back (and they will), we’ll be back in full force doin’ what we do! 😉
Alright, that’s it for our briefing. As always, until next post, stay safe and united! 🙂
Three months ago D&A’s own Donte’ J. Lewis (aka Avidd Minddset) dropped his first EP entitled Minddgames on Spotify and other streaming platforms. Now he’s releasing his very first home studio album Primetime, on July 24, 2020! He’s picked up a few new mixing and mastering techniques since March, so be ready to hear his new electronic sound on this 10-track album featuring genres such as Deep House, 80’s Style Electro Hip-Hop, Trapstep (Trap & Dubstep combined), and of course EDM. Although July 24th is about three-and-a-half weeks away, it’ll be worth the wait once you hear the sound coming out of this album! 😉
Yeah, we can’t believe it either! For the third month in a row, we’ve topped over 1,000 monthly views as well as over 800 monthly visitors! Honestly, we can’t thank our fans enough for all of the love and support that you’ve given us throughout this pandemic. We know that it’s not been easy with conventions being shut down left and right, but we just wanna say that we appreciate our fans and the anime community so much – especially in our fight for equality for black lives and other people of color! As always we will continue to bring you some nerdy and positive content to the site as well as on all of our social media pages. Until next post, stay safe and stay unified! 🙂
Hey guys. Honestly the last three weeks have been mentally and psychologically exhausting. Before I continue I want to say this; I love America…but not like this. About three weeks ago we all witnessed the death of George Floyd after the white police officer that I’m pretty sure we all know of, kept his knee on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. Right now we’re in a state of emergency – a state of racial emergency. I know many of us are either too afraid or too uncomfortable to talk about race, but I’m here to let you guys know; that although it’s uncomfortable (and it can be), it is needed in this time – especially now! Whenever you see a Black Lives Matter protest, look at it this way; we are not (repeat NOT) say that ONLY Black Lives Matter, we want to be given the same fairness, the same equality, and the same opportunities in life just like our white counterparts. Black lives count for ALL lives, so we can’t say that All Lives Matter until Black Lives (and others of color) Matter!
Right now its more critical that we pay more attention to our surroundings, and ask those questions that would otherwise make most of us feel uncomfortable. I can promise you this; by talking about race and what we can do to end racism, we will become better people who are open-minded and loving to one another. When we started this blog, the number one thing is UNITY! We’ve met anime fans from all walks of life with various different morals and beliefs, and when it comes to the anime community, we’ve seen a whole lot of unity! Granted we’ve also seen a few snags as well, but that’s why we must fight for equality! I know a lot of you guys have friends who are people of color and you may feel a little confused about what you can do to help the cause, so I’d say this; have these conversations with your Afro-American friends, support Black-owned businesses including manga artists, vendors, and cosplayers. Read books and articles!
November is coming, and we know what we have to do. The “Other Side” is fighting back hard, but there’s more of us than there are of them! It’s time for a NEW United States of America; where we put the “United” in United States! This is going to be a marathon, not a sprint, but I know that we’re ready for it!
That’s all for now, so until next post…stay united! 🙂
Hey guys. Well, we’re half way through this trial-filled year, as our state is in a transition of racial proportions that are hopefully for the betterment of humanity. When we first started this blog back in 2016, our number one motto was UNITY! Unity as fans no matter your race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender. No matter what others may say or what you might have heard, black and brown lives COUNT for all lives! This also includes nerd lives, trans lives, and LGBTQ+ lives! Yeah, things may be a little rocky and it can be a little uncomfortable to talk about racism in America, but having these conversations and understanding this 400-year-old demon, will help us defeat it and bring us into a world were we are ALL united!
With all that in mind, let’s bring this thing back to a more positive level, shall we? With Summer officially here, this is usually the time where there would be a lot of anime conventions happening, but sadly with COVID-19 still lurking about many of our nerdy party plans have been shut down. However, there have been a lot of digital alternatives that have been coming about; the newest one comes from the leading anime distributor in the U.S. that we all know and love. That’s right, FUNimation has their own digital anime convention happening July 3-4, 2020. It’s a who’s-who of anime VA’s that you all know and love from many of your favorite shows. There are other digital cons happening as well, so we’ll keep you up to date if we find any more.
Now for our second thing; awhile back we kinda retired from fan fiction, but THIS time we’ll be making a special acceptation. After wrapping up our Anime REvisited pick this past Monday which featured Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, we’re proud to announce that we’ll be working on a PSG original story entitled Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt: Godmode’s Game. More info about this latest development will be coming in the later months!
Finally, next year on January 11th will mark our five-year anniversary! We don’t know what we’ve got planned, but we can tell you that it’ll be awesome! It’s hard to believe that two guys who love anime wondered what it would be like if they had a blog of their own, now it kinda feels like we’re the unofficial ambassadors of the anime community; and for that we thank you! That’s the 411 we’ve got for now, but there’s more content coming so stay tuned! As always stay safe, stay united, and stay nerdy! 😉
Alright guys. This is it! This is our last episode review of our Anime REvisited pick; Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. In light of recent events regarding the death of George Floyd as well as the protests, we at D&A Anime Blog truly believe that Black Lives Matter! We’ve always been about unity among fellow anime fans; whether you’re Black, White, biracial, Latinx, Asian, blue, yellow, red, gay, straight, trans, it doesn’t matter. You all are family to us, and though the conversations about racism can be uncomfortable, it is necessary in order for us to progress as a unified race of humans. If you wanna know how you can help, donate to any charity for African Americans that you can find, or head to www.blacklivesmatter.com.
So the final episode starts with Panty being kicked out of the church by Garterbelt due to her not having her powers anymore. While walking through a downpour of rain she suddenly finds herself surrounded by people and animals having sex right in front of her. This causes her to fall down an open drain as the events of the previous episode play out. Soon Panty finds herself on the countryside far away from Daten City; living with her grandma and Sam as a farm girl. She says that she’s happy living her new life as a human, until she finds a picture of her grandma naked on a motorcycle – who resembles Panty.
Suddenly a motorcycle gang of hoodlums shoot up the place where Panty and the others are, as Sam tries to go out there and stop them. With her grandmother dying after being shot by one of the gang members, Panty looks to where she’s pointing and spots Brief at the location where the Hell’s Gate is. Panty says that she doesn’t want her feelings to get in the way, as her grandma tells her to shut up and listen to what she has to say. After her grandmother dies in her arms Panty suddenly remembers who she is, and jumps on a motorcycle before speeding off to the location of the Hell’s Gate. It’s worth mentioning that everything that happened to Panty was staged. You’ll see when you watch the episode.
Panty confronts Corset and tells him that she can take him on without her powers and that she’s a hot bitch angel who can do whatever she wants! At this moment she wants to continue where she and Brief left off that night at the shack. Right away Brief gets an erection on sight as soon as Panty climbs on top of him. (I know we’re crossing dangerously close to NSFW territory, but bear with me here.) Noticing that if anything happens to Brief during his ‘excitement’ with Panty, the Hellsmonkey key will be useless to Corset. His response was to order the Demon sisters to attack Panty, but they’re intercepted by the other Anarchy sibling; Stocking. After congratulating Panty on reaching 1,000 men she lifts the bed that her sister and Brief are on high into the air; causing the geek to fully penetrate his lover. After making love Panty gets her angelic powers back as Stocking tosses her panties to her so that she’ll have two guns instead of one. Both the Anarchies and the Demons prepare for the final battle with the fate of heaven and earth in their hands.
The second half picks up right where the first left off as the Anarchy sisters and Demon sisters battle each other at full power. Garterbelt states that everything is going according to plan as Panty’s been ‘de-virginized’, while Brief ends up falling into Hell’s Gate’s keyhole. He triggers the contraption to unlock as he suddenly turns into the shape of a key, as Panty and Stocking laugh at him during the process. The Demon sisters turn Brief as they open up the gate to release the final ghost, leaving Panty and Stocking as the ones to kill it. Meanwhile Garterbelt and Corset battle one another but sadly the afro preacher is on the losing side of the fight.
Corset then stabs Garter in the chest but due to his immortality he’s not dead. He then grabs Corset by the throat before stating to the angels that he’s trying to use the ghost to get into heaven; so that he can take it over and make both heaven and earth as his rule. Corset proceeds to pull out Garter’s heart before crushing it with his bare hands causing him to explode in the process. As Corset proceeds to the next step of his plan, Panty and Stocking ask Brief where Garter is, and when he tells him that he’s dead, they act like they didn’t really care that much about him…which pissed off Brief. He tells them that they are the worst angels ever and asks why they can’t be serious about anything. Panty and Stocking then glare at the geek and stated that they ARE serious about everything, and proceed to take down Corset with the help of Garterbelt’s Black Heavens Express Card.
The angels manage to pull their powers together and use their ultimate weapon cannon against him. Just when the world needed them most, the angels somehow screwed up and aimed the cannon the wrong way – thus proving Brief’s point about them not being serious. This is where dumb luck comes into play; as the blast caused a giant human pair of legs wearing both a pair of panties and stockings, to descend from the sky and crush Corset and the ghost into a pancake while closing the door to Hell at the same time. After Corset exploded Chuck used his powers to zip up the doors of Hell for good so that they’ll never be open again. The sky was now clear as Garterbelt was revived from being killed, so he removed Brief from the Hell’s Gate keyhole as the contraption went back to normal.
Garter then states that he still has more work to do on earth so he can’t die just yet. He then picks up his express card and finds out that it’s been maxed out thus causing the afro preacher to yell and lecture the angels all the way home. With the final boss defeated Daten City was saved, and that is the end of the story – NOT!
In the after credits scene the angels, Brief, and Garter head back to their home. Stocking asks Panty that even though their weapons kill ghost and demons, she wonders what it does to angels. Panty didn’t have a clue, so she told Stocking to try it and see.
And this is where the biggest WTF moment happens.
Stocking stabs her sister in the back of her head, and then cuts her up into 666 pieces. Garter, Brief, and Chuck have WTF looks on their faces until the geek boy loses it, and Garter explodes again. That’s when Corset returns through Brief’s penis as a small grey blob and laughs at the fact that Panty’s been cut into 666 pieces. Brief asks why Stocking did what she did, and her response was that she’s actually a demon; which sparked the biggest debate amongst the fanbase even to this very day. Yeah, Gainax really pulled the biggest troll on us. Ten years later…and we still don’t have the answer to what Stocking meant. Hopefully if Gainax and Studio Trigger make their decision, we’ll finally have a season two!
Okay guys that will finally do it. Thank you guys for taking this wild ride of a show with us! We don’t know what our next pick will be, but we can assure you it’ll be awesome. Until next post, stay united and safe, and stay nerdy! 🙂
So it looks like we’re getting down to the wire guys n’ gals. We’ve reached the twelfth episode of our Anime REvisited pick; Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. Remember when I said that the last episode was the calm before the storm? Well, here comes the storm.
This episode opens up with the mayor of Daten city as Scanty and Kneesocks goes over the ghost report of all the ghosts that Panty and Stocking have faced. Sadly, the mayor wasn’t pleased with all of the failures of the Demon sisters as well as the creation of their ghosts. During the report he started talking about how during his youth he was much stronger, and can take an angel out with little to no effort. Eventually the mayor decided to step out for the moment while clearing his head; leaving Scanty and Kneesocks to indulge one another in some rather sexual elicit activities involving food. Not sure what that’s about but yeah…
After getting caught in the act the mayor decided to once again drop the Demon sisters into a pool of sweat as their punishment for their failures. While flipping through the video files he looks at the footage of Stocking getting tied up by the ghosts she had trouble fighting with several episodes back – and suddenly gets an idea on how to beat her. (Or possibly something even more sinister…) By the time he watches the last clip the mayor figured out where the kin of the Hellsmonkey is located; and you’ll never believe who its possessor is…
The second half ties into the first as Panty and Stocking have been killing more ghosts than usual while getting heaven coins in the process. Stocking seems to be the only one actually taking the job as an angel seriously, while Panty continues to screw around with more men to reach her goal of 1,000 screws before returning to heaven. After returning home in a manner similar to the first episode, Garterbelt lets the angels know that they’ve collected enough coins to go back to heaven. He tells them to come to the pulpit as they prepare to ascend into the pearly gates, but only Stocking goes back – leaving Panty to continue collecting heaven coins by herself due to her failing her trial. Pissed off she drives through the streets with Brief in tow, as she commands him to get heaven coins for her while she continues on her slutty mission.
With only one more person to screw Brief gets a call from his father about a party happening in his honor; which he didn’t really want. Nevertheless he and Panty attend as she’s rather impressed that he had this kind of pull for high-class parties. Garterbelt blasts Panty’s phone as she’s slacking up on her mission (as usual), so he comes in person to prevent her from being the slut that she is. Frustrated with all that’s happened Panty finds herself looking through the fish tank and seeing a rather attractive boy. She wants to talk to him but he’s pulled away, leaving her in awe of his handsomeness. Later on Brief’s father makes an announcement that he’s chooses one of the mayor’s daughters to be his bride, but Brief states that he’s already chosen someone to be his wife – Panty.
The bride (later revealed to be Scanty) rushes the boy in hopes that he’ll kiss her, but he kicks her away thus pissing her off and foiling the plan. Panty jumps in to face Scanty and Kneesocks on her own, but without the speed and stealth of Stocking to back her up, she doesn’t stand a chance. The blonde gets her ass handed to her in combat, but before she’s done in by Scanty, Brief shows up and uses his backpack to pull out a smokescreen so he and Panty can make a break for it.
The two find an old abandoned shack with a bed in it as Panty’s feeling a bit venerable, so Brief confessed his love to her while holding her hand. It’s at that moment where Panty decided to make Brief her 1,000th screw. The two have sex but in the middle of it Panty starts to feel pain. They try numerous positions but each was more painful than the last. Garterbelt drops in and tells Panty that the reason she lost her powers was due to her hymen coming back into place. It was also at this moment that the mayor (now known as Corset) discovers that Brief is the possessor of the Hellsmonkey, so he uses his power to bring it out. Panty tries to stop him but is intercepted by Scanty and Kneesocks as they capture Brief and take him away. Without her powers Panty is helpless to stop them…
Well guys that will do it for this review. The final episode review is next, so until next post, stay healthy and united. 🙂
Hi again! We’re back with (you guessed it) another episodic review from our Anime Revisited pick; Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. Sorry, no Demon sisters or ghosts in this episode, in fact this one’s more of a calm-before-the-storm ordeal before things pick up and become a tad bit more serious. So without any more delay, let’s begin!
The eleventh episode kicks off with Garterbelt yelling at the angels about slacking off from their ghost-killing duties once again; as he lectures them on why they were kicked out of heaven in the first place. After the lecture was over, a ball gag fell out from underneath the sleeve of the preacher – as Panty was the first to spot it. Soon the girls hatch a plan to catch Garter in the act of him doing creepy bondage rituals by following him into a secret passageway behind the pulpit. While there the angels had to dodge and deal with several booby traps placed by the afro preacher, as they came across a room where they found a book placed on a pedestal right in the middle of the room. Panty assumes is a gay porn bible, but it’s actually Garterbelt’s diary. Stocking begins to read through it as it tells the story of Garterbelt’s origins; him growing up in the ghetto where he became an infamous drug dealer. (Insert “Gangsta’s Paradise” here.)
He had it all; women, money, power, and respect. He eventually became one of the most badass bosses in the game…until he lost his life at the hands of a rival gang. Now in heaven, knowing that he really should be in hell, Garter tells God that he doesn’t want to become a missionary. Well, that didn’t sit too well; so in response God forced Garterbelt to relive the origin of time from the Prehistoric era, through biblical times, and finally throughout the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and now (in 2010). So in a way Garterbelt’s kinky feelings towards bondage may have had to do with him living through time as an immortal. Eventually Panty and Stocking got tired of reading and made their way back, as Garterbelt revealed his hiding place while being tied up in bondage straps along with his ball gag from earlier. He then tells Chuck to begin the ritual as the green dog-like thing does just that.
The second half of the episode takes us into a slice-of-life moment from the upstairs living room of the church were we see Panty and Stocking watching TV. This half is pretty much nothing more than sitcom without a studio audience; where the angels complain about being hungry, Garter yells at them, so they find ways to entertain themselves until their food is ready. That’s pretty much the basis of this episode.
That will pretty much do it for this episodic review, so with only two episodes remaining will the big boss of Daten City finally be revealed? Will Brief play a significant role in the next episode? Guess we’ll have to wait and see! Until next post, stay safe, stay united, and stay nerdy! 🙂
Here we are again! So we’re still on our Anime REvisited pick which we’re pretty sure you know to be Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. So…let’s get onto the review!
In the tenth episode of this crazy series, we’re introduced to a ‘Honey, I Shrunk The Kids’ scenario where Panty and Stocking have been shrunken due to the antics of Scanty and Kneesocks; which is safe to say the battle took place off screen and the angels won. Brief is playing with his tiny girls while Garterbelt diagnosed the problem, and says that the shrinking serum will wear off in an hour – which is about 7 minutes and 28 seconds in real time. The angels end up inside Brief as Garter gives the boy a laxative so that he’ll poop them out. Well, after getting muddy brown, he assumes that he’s flushed Panty and Stocking down the drain (although that’s not the case).
Hilarity ensues while the girls are inside Brief…that is until the serum’s effects start to wear off; making Brief’s stomach bigger as if he’s 8 months pregnant. There was only one thing Garter could do; and that was to deliver the angels through Brief’s uterus – or his anus in this case. Eventually Garterbelt manages to pull Panty and Stocking out of Brief’s rectum, and a long shower later, they were back to being their selves – their sex-loving sweets-eating selves. The second half of the episode appears to start off with the opening scene to the second half of episode 3; where Panty and Stocking head off to fight the power plant ghost, while Chuck goes unconscious due to being fried. So basically the second half is divided into three parts in a ‘Back to the Future’ kinda way, as Chuck and Fastener go at it.
The third half is basically a music video where Panty and Stocking sing the lyrics to “D City Rock”, as the girls go through various music covers that many music enthusiasts will recognize; such as The Beatles (Abby Road), Gorillaz, ACDC, and more. So yep, this pretty much wraps up the episode, so as always make sure you stay safe and stay united!
Ohayo! Hope you guys are doing great and staying safe. So we’ve got another fantastic episode review for you guys from our Anime REvisited pick; Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt! We’ve finally hit the beach episode, so let’s get started!
The angels hit the beach in this episode as they get the usual ‘hungry eyes’ looks from the guys who worship the ground they walk on. Garterbelt has his own little grill shack as we start to notice a patter between him and another character from South Park. (Yes there’s a HUGE reference in this show – even in the animation.) Brief shows up after picking up all of the meat for the girls, but in reality it’s really for Garterbelt. As Panty asks Brief to rub suntan oil on her body, a familiar red carpet appears as Scanty and Kneesocks once again make their presence known.
They then claim the beach that Panty and Stocking are on and asks them to leave, sadly, this is easier said than done. After multiple verbal insults both the angels and demons settle things with some 2-on-2 volleyball. Somewhere during the match there’s an animation shift to the aforementioned South Park style I was telling you about earlier. Then the game turned into an all-out war with both the angels and demons at a tied up score of 20-20; where the losing team has to get naked in front of the beach goers. Scanty and Kneesocks lose the match and now have to get naked – as if! They both pull out bottles of black liquid that creates ghosts as Scanty shoots the bottles causing the liquid to fall into the ocean. Suddenly all kinds of ghost sea creatures come onto the beach; from a ghost dolphin, to a ghost hammerhead, to even a ghost sea urchin.
While Panty and Stocking battle the ghosts; the demons make their escape, but not before shooting themselves in the foot (via Scanty), by activating the self-destruct button. Garterbelt made all the money he wanted, but not before getting crushed by a sperm whale ghost. The second half is a Stocking episode where she and Panty are looking for men to screw. Suddenly the gothic angel spots someone; who just happens to be a foul-mouthed ghost, causing her sister to gag like hell. Stocking tells Panty that she’s dating said ghost even though she’s majorly opposed to this relationship. Although the ghost kinda treats Stocking like crap at first, the two go on more dates and he starts to open up – much to Panty’s dismay.
Rumors start going around about Stocking’s relationship with the ghost as Panty got tired of it. Elsewhere Stocking tells her ghostly lover that she’s an angel; whose sole purpose is to kill ghosts like him, but she says she’s willing to give all of that up (and possibly a chance at going back to heaven or being an angel) just to be with him. Later on that evening she leaves the church as Panty decides to put a stop to this once and for all. Panty (disguised as Stocking) finds the ghost and points her gun to his head; telling him that he and Stocking are breaking up. However the real Stocking shows up and rips into her sister; telling her that she doesn’t know anything about love, but Panty fires back and tells Stocking nether does the ghost – but the ghost actually does love Stocking. He pulls out an engagement ring and asks Stocking to marry him while Panty hurls in disgust.
Garterbelt shows up to hold Panty down as the ghost places the ring on Stocking’s finger, but after doing so, it caused him to be cleansed as he tells her that she made him want to be a better man. After disappearing Garterbelt picks up the heaven coin and explains to the girls that there are ghosts who spend their entire lives without the love of another person. It just so happens that this ghost was one of them – a bachelor. While in her room Stocking hears Panty telling her that it’s time for them to kill some ghosts, and that she’ll even let her bang a few. The gothic angel mutters something along the lines of how much she hates her sister sometimes as she leaves to do another assignment. She kept the ring the ghost gave her as its hanging from the mouth of one of her stuffed animals on the shelf.
In a series as crazy as this there has to be at least one tender moment of true love, and it just so happens that Stocking was the best candidate. Compared to her sister she’s actually the most ‘likable’ and ‘least’ shallow in terms of what true love really means. It’s kinda cool Stocking got this moment to experience what true love really is and that like she said; has no restrictions. There’s a lot of us out there still looking, but I’m optimistic that there’s someone for everyone; and that we’ll find that significant other we’ve been searching for.
That’s it for now, and as always guys n’ girls; stay safe, stay united, and stay nerdy! 😉
