I just realized something, may or may not be a coincidence:

Throughout the whole show, Panty's lust and promiscuity have never been condemned or even depicted as "bad things". The Tokyo Youth Protection Bill was passed, then all of a sudden we get an episode in which Heaven denies Panty access to Heaven because of all her sexing it up. As the anime production process, especially at GAINAX, is such that changes are frequently made at the last minute (Evangelion represents the epitome of this, with no ending even decided until the last possible moment, and even then...), it's possible the ending was altered so GAINAX can use this aspect of the story as defense against the claim that this show "unjustifiably glorifies sexual or pseudo-sexual acts". It certainly wouldn't be an anomaly for a GAINAX series to deviate from the originally planned ending.


I disagree with that assessment. Panty has always been called and known as a dirty hoe. Her actions are certainly comical but they are never directly justified either. For example in that episode with Stocking the issue was brought up that Panty had never loved anyone thus she could not understand the purity of Stocking's love.

I found it interesting that they made Brief attractive beneath his hair. Not to mention his courage. Perhaps it is referring to inner beauty?

The episode was a bit of a "return to purity" episode, symbolically with Panty returning Brief's "pure love" and hilariously literal with Panty becoming a virgin again. XD.

yeah also given that the bill is geared at restricting things that aren't clearly int he adult catigory it shouldn't matter here given that PSG is in the older audience demographic.

Guys, the bill won't get power 'till next summer. There's no reason for it to affect PSG. Besides, developments in last ep were long time coming if we look at the whole work in retrospect.

Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

Reposted from the ADTRW Panty and Stocking thread:

Details from today's Gainax's live commentary:

-The production for final episode is completed.
-Sushio, Animation Director of the final episode, is really fucking exhausted; he hasn't bathed in a week, they say. However, he says that he is really proud of his work and that he is expecting to WOW people in the same in which he WOW-ed people with Gurren episode 15.
-They flat out called the Demon Sisters' scene yuri.
-To make up for the recap episode, they're going to add a BD/DVD-exclusive episode on the final BD release.
-The DJ at the Rock Foundation party is Taku Takahashi drawn in P&S style.
-Brief's VA said that while playing Brief in episode 12B, he made sure to feel like if he was "piloting a Gundam".
-The staff actually checks out Pixiv's fanart; they were happy when they saw today's top 10.
-To make sure to draw Panty's feelings accuratedly, all the scenes with Briefers and Panty were left to the female animators.
-They're releasing an art-book at the Talk Live Animated event.
-Wakabayashi and Nishigori are looking forward to the doujinshi fans come up with for C79: "Please work hard, everyone!"

So, same thing they did with Gurren Lagann?

Happy that they haven't lost that audience segment they thought they might, I guess

PanSto Imaishi interview from Young Ace October:

-Imaishi feels kinda bad about PanSto. He is very sorry since he is totally going to disappoint the enthusiastic female fans who had promised him with sparkling eyes at Comiket to also support his next work. He expects to lose the "fashionable 20-something females" he had won over with ‘Gurren Lagann’.

This is the one series for which doujins of both normal and ero-variety are propably just as true to the spirit of original :hahaha:
ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!

I can't be arsed to dig through threads and find specific examples, but I'm pretty sure it's been brought up at least a few times in discussions on here regarding the appropriateness of fanservice in NGE (and Rebuild, though of course that's not technically Gainax...still a lot of the same creative staff, though).

Well, specifically? There was at least one dude on Reddit, and it's a stupid enough theory that I'm sure someone here must have suggested it at some point.
