The people over at Anime News Network have teamed up with FUNimation to give people a chance at winning a free Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt DVD before it hits store shelves July 10th. Four (4) lucky winners will receive a copy of the DVD set, while one lucky grand prize winner will receive the DVD, as well as a poster signed by the Japanese cast. I gotta say, that poster is really enticing.
The contest is open to all, but will only be shipped to those residing in the US or Canada. Entries will be accepted until Saturday night, June 30 at 11:59PM EST, with winners announced on Sunday, July 1. Even if you don’t win, you should still pre-order it at Amazon or Rightstuf, where you’ll receive a nice little Heaven Coin trinket (while supplies last).
I was a bit worried how the English dub would turn out, but FUNi pulled out the stops with a cast consisting of Christopher Sabat (Vegeta!) as Garterbelt, Jamie Marchi as Panty, Monica Rial as Stocking, Cherami Leigh as Kneesocks, Colleen Clinkenbeard as Scanty, and Joel McDonald (Minato, the protagonist of Sekirei) as Brief.
In other news, I just got my Alter Panty figure in the mail, and it’s awesome. Can’t wait for Stocking this September. Oh, Kneesocks is also coming out in July. No word on Scanty yet. Good Smile Company has also said they would be doing figures of Panty and Stocking. No new word on those still.
Anyways, go enter yourself in that giveaway!
