More than a decade after the first thirteen episodes, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt finds a follow-up. During the Anime Expo 2022, Studio Trigger has in fact announced big news coming to the franchise.
During the related panel at the event that took place in Los Angeles, Studio Trigger surprised fans with a shocking comeback. The staff, in fact, showed a very short clip showing the main protagonists of Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, posing and with the middle finger on display, and on which the phrase “New Panty & Stocking” was engraved.
The first thirteen episodes of the series originally aired in 2010, produced by the GAINAX studio under the direction of Hiroyuki Imaishi, the composition by Geek Fleet and the designs by Atsushi Nishigori. At the moment, we still don’t know if the staff will be reconfirmed even after all these years.
A new project for the series had been anticipated in 2016, when GAINAX revealed they were working on something related to the franchise. The production of a sequel for Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, however, has passed into the hands of Studio Trigger, which at the Anime Expo also showed the intro of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the anime series based on the cult video game that will arrive on Netflix.
