I think this tagline may be mistranslated. The Japanese says "Pantsu" which almost always means "Panties" in anime and given what's going on in the image I'm pretty sure it is panties. The guy has a nosebleed with some tissue stuck in his nose and the girls are all in provocative poses. Him getting turned on by pants makes little sense.

ANN is also using this tagline translation:


The slogan for the anime is, "Once he sees underwear, humanity is destroyed!?"


At any rate, this looks like fun and I'll be sure to check it out later.

Sounds fanservicey, but in a fun kind of ways.
One he sees panties, humanity is destroyed? lulz.

Hmm, that does make more sense. I think I used the tagline from ANN as well and not sure why CR used the same tagline. Might fix soon. Thanks for bringing it up.

Yup, no problem. Another thing that makes me think this is panties is the title of the anime. Punchline is spelled with Japanese Katakana パンチライン (Panchirain) and パンチラ (Panchira) by itself means "showing underwear." So, there seems to be a play on words going on there about panties/underwear too.

It appears that the punchline is mostly going to be "Pants!"

Pan Pan Chira Pan Pan Chira! Pan Pan Chira Pan Pan Chira!

Oh my, I wonder, whatever could this anime be about?

Judging by the amount of panchira in the PV, the human race is surely doomed LOL
