Is this anime somehow related to Powerpuff Girls? The first minutes seemed pretty much like it, and the drawing is very similar, too. Tough, I wouldn't show this to kids :p
It's just the style~ I don't really like it ..... really now HOW LOW CAN ANIME GET??? This is already cartoons! I can't consider it anime!
Gainax is behind this, if I recall correctly. Remember, Gainax as a studio has already sold it soul after the NGE franchise. I have never seen a SINGLE sereis brought back to life every fews years like NGE has...

Well, there's Gundam, but they at least put fresh coat of paint on each iteration. NGE released the original version on DVD like 3-4 different times with minor edits in each compilation...

Anyway, I'm gonna give this series a whirl with an ep, maybe 2. But being a Gainax series, I don't expect to follow it in the long run.
I find it rather funny. That helps me to overlook the poor drawing. Also, the "transformation" is pretty nicely animated. Though it's just some kinda fanservice lol
I wish the style used during that 30-sec sequence (as well as this image) was used for the whole series: Panty's pretty hot that way.

From what I red this is suppost to be parody of american cartoon shows, especially parody of fan-erotic remixes (like naked PPG or Dexter x Deedee drawings).
Author is huge fan of Gendy Tartakovsky and GAINAX itself is more like ditribution-money-leech (we'll get fat moneyz if we put our logo into it) than actuall creators.

GAINAX or rather DAICON Films transformed anime market into actuall market with PVC figures, posters and so on.
NGE is milestone just like GITS or Macross/Robotech - bear with it or get angry (?). I respect what they did, laught at NGE revisions, look forward to the PaSwG series (and love that erotic cornelius-like theme song)
NGE was their highpoint, I'll give them that. But they're about as bad as GONZO these days. I'm not angry, per se...Just disappointed at how low they've gone.

Anyway...Back to the actual image. I won't mind renditions of Panty and Stocking in their anime-style version versus the "flash animation"-style version.
So this series was purposely made to look horrible and insulting?
Everyone complains about how shitty it's drawn, but I bet you'll all watch it anyway to see more of the "anime-style" scenes. Though there isn't really much of a story, I still find it entertaining to watch. I mean seriously, how many anime are out there that feature a nympho and a sugar addict as main female cast?
You know what, this is a funny series, who cares about how its drawn, every series and group out there has their own style of drawing their anime.
Just finished the 1st episode. It's quite interesting to me and I might keep watching it.
It is interesting, really.
It is just stupid, people drop something the minute they see the strange drawing style.
But this is way more interesting than your average, oppai, pantsu, ecchi filled anime. Way more.

Gainax is not afraid of taking a strange turn, and I am glad it is that way.

Edit: Does this count as a spoiler?
Wait, are you guys saying it looks shitty? Seriously? So whenever someone takes a different turn in art direction, it is shit? Basically, whenever something new happens, it's bad because it isn't old?

tl;dr: Music sucked after Bach.
It looks shitty... no... it looks fucked up because this is not anime ... this is a cartoon.... how is it anime? You're still thinking it's anime... why isn't it? The fuck look at the graphics style!

edit: Thou some parts are good, most suck ...
Okay...Now that this has brought on discussing the series in general, please take further discussion/debate to the forums. Use forum #6031 or something.
It´s really a Fucking Cartoon- not a Anime!
You know what? Everything has people that like it, and everything has people that hate it. So in truth, you hate it or like it, NO ONE CARES. Likeing or hating something is a personal thing. So, even if you do not like the style, doesn't mean you can just go up to someone and slap them for liking it. Otherwise, you are giving them the right to slap you back.
All the hate for this show basically ends at the same place: IT LOOKS DIFFERENT SO I HATE IT!!!

Here we go.

The reason most people don't like to call anime cartoons is because "cartoons" usually refers to (at least in the western vocabulary) animation aimed at youngsters. Most anime are NOT aimed at youngsters, I won't make a list, we'd be here all day. The question being asked here is "What makes an anime an anime? Is it target audience or animation style or something else?"
I hope your guitar isn't the only thing that is bullet proof.
Orignally Anime was anime because of the animation style. Than cartoons started to use that style, so than Anime was anime based on target audience. Than cartonns started to target the same audience, so than Anime was anime based on something else now. All it comes down to though is that cartoons is any show/picture/etc that was drawn by hand and made not to be realistic.

And the whole thing about cartoons being aimed at kids? Totally false. Plenty of western cartoons have been aimed at adults, or have jokes that only adults would get. In other words, the cartoons would appeal to both kids and adults. And if I were to make a list of all the cartoons like that, we would be here all day. So what it finally comes down to, is the animation style. And, P&S/G is drawn in one of the more different animation styles that western people have problems seeing as actual anime.
how did this discussion go from 9 days ago to being reiterated 9 hours ago? for goodness' sake! anime ≠ live action & cartoons ≠ live action! can't we just settle it at that!? anyways, whatever genre it is, panty & stocking w/ garterbelt sounds like an......interesting.....show.

And that's why we will kill any et's coming visit earth in the future ¬¬

I in fact didn't liked first, but now... it is just so funny ^^
Some people consider as anime any piece of animation coming out from Japan, that's OK, in fact, I'd say I belong to this group of people. But when someone tags something like this as NOT "anime" but as a "cartoon", only because it uses a different artistic approach than the traditional anime standards, that's a bit moronic. Also, anime is just the way the Japanese people refer to cartoons, so saying something is a cartoon and not anime, well... that's just silly.

Seriously, anyone for saying something like this needs to step back, take a deep breath, and chill the fuck out.
