But not enough whining over Stockingtron's decisions and wanting to take over and stab him/her in the back! That would have been classic Starscream.

One of my favorite parts is when Stockingtron has just finished recruiting the rest of the Stockingcons, and she gives that classic Megatron sneer (see Funkatron's avatar). The level of detail that went into this parody is absolutely insane. The final battle between the Pantybots and the Stockingcons alone was absolutely brimming with visual references to the G1 animated movie.

The best part was when I noticed that at the start of the final battle, Panty has the Condombot attached to her gun. I was really losing it by then. The attention to detail in placing tiny visual gags within each frame of the main visual gag is really amazing. Amemiya knocked this one out of the park.

Robots are awesome so the first part was instant win, though I was a little disappointed to see no robotic transformation for Panty & Stocking. D=

Second part wasn't that bad either. Amusing montage episode about P&S going through different jobs and settling on gambling for their earnings. Glad to see Scanty & Kneesocks will be frequent antagonists from now on

That's nothing. Right before that shot, Stockingtron's Dildocon is...in a very suggestive position...

I've stopped trying to anticipate this series, like I do with so many others. There's no point. Not that it's random, although it is, but there is very much a method to that deceptive madness. Now I just sit back and enjoy it, and then watch it a few more times to stand in bemused awe at what I can't believe I missed.

I only hope this series spawns more like it. Not just imitators of its subject matter and overall style, as there will no doubt be plenty of those knockoffs soon enough, but series that buck the "flavor of the week" trend and let their animators and directors have a little fun once in a while...

It may not quite have the best animation (although the last two episodes do nothing if not flaunt their animators' prodigious talents), it may not have the most complex plot (or any real plot, for that matter), and it may not even be the funniest (Mitsudomoe might argue that claim), but pound for pound, this may just be the best series of the year (amid admittedly scant competition)...if it keeps up this momentum. It's already guaranteed itself cult status of at least the FLCL level.

Bite your tongue, heathen. (lol jk ^_^) Transformers are not mecha. There are no angsty yet photogenic kids controlling those robots... That's what killed G1, was moving toward the traditional giant mecha pilot/mech dynamic, if only slightly. Very different types of stories, and a very different type of fan.

I love how there are so many totally off the wall gags in the background. I noticed that the Pantybots in the final battle also had a toiletbot among their ranks, and one of the most hilariously random moments in the final battle is when the robot with a car as its body transforms into a DINOSAUR instead. Seriously, Gainax is on some awesome drugs.

Oh i already know about that . I was just wishing we had a few old school Prime references, though it doesn't matter much.

It's obvious that this episode was trying to fit in as much as possible, so asking for something that is a bit much . I mean we're lucky they added in that Starscream scene in the image 7Th posted.

Personally i'd say they are, though that's a discussion left for another thread.

It's not that random, i mean it's just one of the dinobots called Grimlock.

Grimlock's robot form does not have a car stuck on his torso! When a robot has a car torso and transform into a dinosaur instead, it's totally random!

In other news, I didn't notice it until a second viewing, but Pantybot's "screw" is actually part of her design. It's there right from the beginning, just waiting to be used for "that scene".

It might be a joke on the fact that Grimlock got a car-toy made for him for no reason.

Ooooh. That's a good catch. Yeah that sounds like the sort of gag Gainax would pull.

It's one of the shittiest day in my life... but i saw the episode and Gainax could put some smile in my face and forgot my problems for a while...

so thanks a lot Gainax... the transformers parody was great, you can just laugh at it, but when you pay attention you can see those amazing details and you say: "sh*t, Gainax is serious bussiness". The second part was pure eye-candy, Gainax just threw the entire fetish list... nurses, carwashing, police women, etc... Briefs is buying Pantie's panties?, so, he does have some money

Again, thanks Gainax...

There's one scene in particular from that first part that I really wish wasn't there, but the rest was well done.

Its sad how so many people doubted Gainax when they first saw this. This just shows that a good studio always remain a good studio.

Love the Berserk reference at the start of the second episode. Hopefully the series can keep it up and post a stronger second half than the first.
