If you want to see your favorite anime ruined, just watch this.

I am dead serious about this. During watching this "OVA", I felt trolled permanently by Gainax. If the main season didn't troll one already, that is.

To sum this up in a _serious_ way, this OVA is some sort of "outtake gag reel", consisting of various little 2-3 minute long skits. It might not add much to the story, it's rather like "what happened during or between episodes".

Animation and sound is like the series, but the last skit just... look at yourself.

Could have been more interesting, but if you like PSG, give it a try.

Having heard that there will be an OVA suite to the acclaimed Gainax's production, Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, I was delighted to sit in front of my computer, happy to watch it. And oh the disapointment.

There is not enough room in this 8-minute animation to fit in a story but in the actual series they manage to crawl in amusement for about 10 minutes the mini-episode. So why not here? I felt that they simply did not have a good idea to start. They simply filled the air-time with non-funny jokes of about 1 minute 30 each. A complete waste of time, money and production. Still, the graphics, though less imaginative than the series, were great. Great with stupidistic plot, may I say.

The sound here is the same, though a bit flawed. I did not felt the characteristic vibe of the two main characters. In fact we don't even see them as the stars of the show but as merely random side characters. A shame.

As I said, where are the characters? Nowhere.

Overall, thsi is not even worth a watch. Yes, even for hardcore fans of Panty, Stcoking and co. Just stick with the incredible original series and don't even bother about this one. It is just 8-minutes long, but 8 five horrible minutes indeed. I seriously hope they will not tarnish the series brilliance anymore than that in the upcoming true OVA. In resume: A complete waste of time.

Note: Funimation licensed the original series, Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, for a DVD/ Blu-Ray release in 2012. There is no doubt about that: I'm gonna buy it for sure.I still say I am a fan of Panty and Stcoking as the original series suprised me highly with it's busty imagination, color, concept, art, ruthlessness and arrogance. I will then make a complete review on the series.

Score: A poor 2.5/5 because it's utter crap.
