After watching the entire box set, I have to say I am thoroughly impressed with this show. It was absolutely hilarious. The topics they cover are so off the wall, I had to do a double take sometimes to realize what I was actually watching. The animation is top notch and the English voice acting is perfect. I personally prefer an English dub over English subtitles, and this show didn't disappoint. The voice actors did a great job for all the characters.
Although there are only 13 episodes with bonus content, I felt it was a good purchase. I would recommend it to anyone who loves raunchy humor and doesn't mind excessive swearing. Nothing is edited, so it's all there, and let me tell you, there is a lot of it. There are even swear combinations that I haven't even heard before, and I've heard a lot. This isn't a show with a lot of fan service, but you can hear the sounds and sometimes see the shadows whenever someone's "gettin' it on". The traditional anime scenes throughout just make the show that much better.
And about the heaven coin everyone is talking about. I checked, and it was a limited pre-order bonus from Funimation, so none of these copies of the box set come with it. At first, I wanted one, but after seeing the show, I felt the product purchased has more merit than a silly little pre-order bonus.
To summarize: I had never seen this show before I purchased it. After watching it, I want two things. 1) To watch it through again (Yes, it's that good). 2) A second season. This show was so good and the way it ended, it deserves a second season. I've heard that it isn't happening, but I've seen it before. Take the Dead of Alive series for example. The last console title came out on the Xbox 360 in 2005. After that, the company practically fell apart and had to merge in order to survive. The game's creator even left, and he mentioned that the series was over. It's been seven long years, and even with all that turmoil (and the creator leaving), it's finally coming out in September. That just goes to show that nothing is impossible. And I used that example specifically since it's a Japanese company and some of them don't care about their US and European fan bases. Hopefully, the sales here and on other websites will show them that they have a real gem on their hands. Maybe season 2 will be out before too long.
This comes with the original Japanese audio as a selection with subtitles though, so if you are ultra weaboo, there ya go. Buy this, both versions are hilarious and the animation is cute, also there's an episode which is reminiscent of Tokyo Gofathers or Tekkon Kinkreet which really has an odd slow pacing, but its rather neat to see in the mix of all the flashy bright colours.
At any rate, its very vulgar, cheap obvious in your face comedy such as; "I have the biggest entrances in the entire school!!" "That is a lot of information I didn't need to know, Booga' flick in-yo-face!" As long as you aren't a dainty person and enjoy some garish humor, this is the show for you.
The series is a mix of action scenes where our two heroes, Panty and Stocking, take down evil ghosts. The ghosts are all creatively designed and have enough variety to keep the series interesting.
The real humor from this series comes from the banter between the main characters. It's a stream really well delivered pop culture references and sex jokes. They're all very varied and well paced, so you wont get bored of the humor.
This set contains the dub and the sub. Funimation did a stellar job with the dub. Every one is well voiced, so there's no "weird VA syndrome" that happens when you watch a series subbed then dubbed.
If you're unsure if this series is for you, the first two episodes are legal to stream from Funimation's YouTube channel.
