Panty And Stocking With Garterbelt Complete Series Blu-ray (Cert 18)

2 Discs (Distributor: Manga Entertainment) Running time: 313 minutes approx.

Just when you thought it was safe they’re back – and this time in HD!

Panty And Stocking With Garterbelt was originally released in 2012 on DVD while the Japanese licence owners refused to sanction a Blu-ray release for international audiences. Thankfully prudence and public demand won the day and now Manga have re-released this anarchic, mind melting and generally offensive show on Blu-ray for our HD delectation!

For the full description of what the show is about and what to expect please see my original review HERE!

The original release was mired with an unfortunate mishap in the mastering stage which saw the ends of the final three episodes chopped off and the retail discs recalled. I’m pleased to report that no such misfortune occurs here so you can purchase this Blu-ray release with complete confidence.

Aside from the enhanced visuals, is there any other reason to upgrade to Blu-ray? The simple answer is “yes” as the second disc is loaded with extras – almost three hours worth – a lot of which didn’t feature on the DVD release. And as a added bonus, the “Sanitary Box” OVA now comes with the original Japanese soundtrack with subtitles so those of you who prefer the original dialogue no longer have to suffer the dub!

Even second time around Panty And Stocking With Garterbelt will without question once again polarise opinion among anime fans but by now I believe most of you would have made your own minds up about this unashamedly subversive show.

If you missed out first time around and genuinely want a new anime viewing experience and you have a Blu-ray player then this is the title for you. Warning: not the squeamish, easily offended, prudish, pious, uptight, unadventurous or conservative. Everyone else – prepare to have you minds blown and have a good time!!
