Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

New original series from Gainax.
Hiroyuki Imaishi directing.
Masahiko Otsuka assisting.
Yoh Yoshinari doing concept art and probably animation direction and key animation.
It actually looks cartoony and not like stock anime, nor is it completely over-angular like the stereotype of modern western cartoons.

I think I'm going to enjoy this.

Not so much the ignorant children on /a/ frothing at the mouth because it looks just slightly different from what they're used to, but oh well.

Also reminds me that I intended to give Heartcatch Precure a look. Though I'm also watching all three seasons of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha right now so maybe I should lay off the magical girl stuff for a bit or I might actually become the little girl.

it looks pretty, pleasantly dissimilar to most western and eastern stuff I've seen recently (although I'd like to see it move before I say for sure). i like the way the weapons they're holding are just in blue and white, it reminds me of the new gendy tartakovsky giant robot show

goddammit that picture is so fucking cool
