Funimation Acquires Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

Gainax's wild 13-episode trip headed to home video in 2012

Funimation's most recent acquisition announcement is none other than Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, the madcap anime from the folks at GAINAX (FLCL, Neon Genesis Evangelion).

 

The 13-episode series, which streamed in its entirety at Crunchyroll, is set to hit home video in 2012. Panty & Stocking is as notable for its varying styles and homages to American animation as it is for, well, its potty humor.

 

Anyone who hasn't seen the show via other methods is in for a treat. The synopsis, via Funimation's press release: 

 

"The Anarchy sisters, Panty and Stocking, are angels who were kicked out of Heaven due to bad behavior. They are sent to Daten City, a place located on the edge of Heaven and Hell, where creatures called "Ghosts" have run wild - feeding on human desire. Under the watchful eye of Reverend Garterbelt, it's up to Panty and Stocking to destroy these Ghosts, in order to collect enough Heaven Coins to return to Heaven. Only the Anarchy sisters can save humanity from these monsters and when they're not bickering with each other, they're unstoppable."
