About Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt Blu-ray/DVD Anime Classics
This Anime Classics collection of Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt contains episodes 1-13.
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 nights blowing up ghosts in the seedy 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 turning the mean streets of Daten City into a buffet of bodily fluids.
Ghosts don't stand a chance against their lingerie of mass destruction, and if this debaucherous duo can collect enough Heaven Coins, they just might get their halos back. It's a slim chance in hell, but anything can happen when you're rolling commando, especially with Panty and Stocking!

Ratings & Reviews
A Crazy Hot Mess
The animation style is fun and Panty & Stocking are a couple of bad asses. Though it is a bit graphic for my taste (the cursing bothers me the most). I can appreciate the topsy-turvy symbolism. There are quite a lot of surprises throughout the series, but some of the episodes I found to be completely stupid and unnecessary. I also felt that Chuck was a pointless character. The movie spoofs were pretty awesome. That ending though... I will be on the look out for a season 2!

Panty and Stocking is similar to other non-anime shows such as Family Guy, American Dad or Simpson. This similarity comes from the nature of its comedy and even its art style. Where it differs is that it parodies many tropes of both anime and Western cartoons while being crazy and over the top. The episodes have punch as they are cut into 1/2 length (15 mins) segments with 2 per episode.
This is a weird Gainax anime through and through if you are a fan of FLCL or any of the cartoons above then it is well worth your time.
The only version you should ever buy!
I could go into the plot of the anime but that would give too much away. Just imagine The Powerpuff Girls and the Bible being rewritten by a sick pervert and you have a general idea of where this series is going to take you. Many of the best episodes are the ones that hardly involve the titular characters. I won't spoil it but a particular episode involving a Japanese business man was a huge surprise for me. And is still my favorite episode.
If you are on the fence or don't know which version to get (it got released several times). I am here to tell you this specific set is the one you should by. Unlike the original dvd release this one includes a huge selection of extra content. From bonus mini-sodes. To commentary, interviews and outtakes. If you like have the most complete experience possible this collection is the only way to go!

Panty and stocking is a awesome show and the dub is fking funny as hell
A westernized anime
by Victor -
It is clear that this series received a lot of influences from the west with its art, characters, and animation. The whole series follows two girls named Panty and Stocking who are trying to become angels by earning coins from fighting evil. The character personalities are far from what one would imagine angels should be like. Most of the episodes are self-contained stories with an over-arching story. If you want something different in anime with gratuitous amount of action, swearing, and sexual inuendos, this is something worth looking up. The main drawback of this series would be the ending but I will leave that up to you to see.
