The upcoming anime by GAINAX, “Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt“, has a trailer posted online.
The show revolves around 2 angels (for real) named Panty and Stocking (no joke) that were kicked out of heaven for bad behavior under the pretext of ghost hunting. The show will premiere on October 1st and will air on numerous TV stations in Japan.
Originally mistaken for the show that is to be based on the Dantalian no Shoka light novel, which is set in 20th century Britain, it was later clarified that these are, in fact, two different shows. Panty and Stocking will be directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi, famous for Gurren Lagann and Dead Leaves, with character designs by Atsushi Nishigori, who also did the designs in Gurren Lagann.
Update (9/29): 3 short commercials popped up on youtube recently.
