How did PSG do in Japan? I can't imagine that with everything from the western media references to the openly slutty main character, Japanese Otaku would like it at all.
Did it flop?
Less than break even.
Though it generated a lot of buzz and the people that liked it really liked it.
It flopped harder than a Christmas cakes tits on a roller coaster.
The BDs sold like shit.
It got a strong following among females but Gainax admitted they never expected female viewers so they weren't ready to make profit with them. Male otakus buy expensive crap while female otakus buy tons of cheap crap.
Is that why there is a surplus of gender bending fan art among the PSG fans? I've wondered if most fans were just retarded or something, but that would explain it.
FLY AWAY NOW
>It got a strong following among females
Panty and Stocking are fun and refreshing (read: slutty) female characters.
And what makes these sluts different from all the other sluts in anime?
It doesn't shame them and Panty even gives a great speech about being a bitch.
2.5k. Which isn't too bad, but could be better.
>the amount of money that went into the Scanty and Kneesocks episode alone
It's pretty bad. P&S was shot cheap.
they actually fuck guys on screen
Because it's about two cute girls doing whatever the fuck they want.
Well for one Panty actually has sex, she isn't just baselessly implied to have sex by otaku everywhere.
