Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt Season 2 Revealed By Studio Trigger
Here’s the reason why fans of anime are excited about this Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt sequel and what you need to learn about the show, Gainax and Trigger.
Studio Trigger revealed at its Anime Expo 2022 panel on July 2 that it was a season 2 with Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt as reported by VamptVo. A new show was already revealed in 2016, but without any news since it was announced. The announcement was accompanied by a short trailer that is expected to be officially released.
Why Anime Fans Are Hyped For The Panty & Stocking Sequel Reveal
Production was handled by Gainax and directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi (Kill La Kill) Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt was first broadcast from October 1 through December 24 in the year 2010. The comedy follows two fallen angels that have become demon hunters, the flirtatious Panty and the unassuming Stocking who both follow the orders of Garterbelt the Afro priest.
Panty & Stocking is an extravagant series that is more eccentric than the typical Gainax shows like FLCL, Abenobashi, or Gurren Lagann. It’s difficult to define the elements that the series did to make Panty & Stocking memorable to those who weren’t a part of the show. The show incorporated a variety of tricks or an entirely different method of animation. The original soundtrack composed by several composers, including the song Fly Awayby TeddyLoid which was among the show’s most memorable features.
Personally, I believe it was a series that was unbalanced and that certain scenes or episodes becoming more memorable than other. In the blogosphere of the past there was a certain Kurogane once described Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt by saying “Too experimental, even for Gainax” and I believe that 12 years after the fact.
In the end, Panty & Stocking is definitely worth watching so it is if you’re okay with its crude humor or imagery. If you’re a fan of Studio Trigger and Imaishi’s stuff and also if you love Studio Trigger’s less niche and experimental shows like Turning Girls or Inferno Cop I’m certain you’ll enjoy Panty & Stocking.

A Quick History Of Studio Trigger And Its Gainax Origins
Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt’s Director Hiroyuki Imaishi resigned from Gainax in the year 2011 along with a number of other members to create Studio Trigger. The Studio Trigger team comprised Panty & Stocking scriptwriter Masahiko Otsuka as well as director Kazuya Masumoto. After losing the majority their talent Gainax is hardly doing any work since then, though it retained the rights to the show.
The situation was finally resolved in 2020 when Studio Trigger got the rights to Panty And Stocking With Garterbelt and Gurren Lagann. The company is now officially announcing the addition of PSG. This is an extremely thrilling announcement, and a dream fulfilled for those who’ve been following the genre since the end of the 2000s. I’m eager to see what the new anime will appear like.
