I was fortunate enough to review Panty and Stocking with Garter Belt when it first came to DVD in a limited edition package. I felt it was a bit under whelming but it had it’s good parts as well.

PICTURE QUALITY:
Like my original thoughts on the series, the Blu-Ray transfer is also under whelming. There is a barrage of styles that make up Panty and Stocking with Garter Belt from weird cartoon network like styles to proper anime styles to even live action stuff. Not all of it manages to translate well into the HD version of the show. Matter of fact, hardly any of it.

It’s pretty hard to go wrong as far as the color scheme for the series is involved. P&S is a vivid looking show with bright colors. Where the discrepancies begin is line definition and clarity. Sometimes the line definition looked a bit jagged and a strange hue created a soft look for most of the series. I watched the DVD version in July of 2012 so it’s been awhile since I last saw it, but I don’t remember the quality being so uneven. It certainly has its upsides such as audio being as perfect as usual with most Funimation titles, but I didn’t really feel as if I had upgraded all that much in picture.
