Review: "Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt" DVD Box Set: Subversively Sardonic But Egregious In English

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt

The last decade of anime has been dominated by one trend above all others. Moe.

Whether it was it was the pair of wild west space adventures in Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star, or the unusually good ren-ai game adaptation in Sentimental Journey, Sunrise was simply on fire.
