Time To Celebrate – National Underwear Day!

It’s National Underwear Day today and that means it’s time for us to share our favorite underwear/panty shots with you! We have underwear-masked anarchists, panty-wielding angels, and more in this list! And of course, you can find and stream all of these shows on!



SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist

Panty Mask | Episode 1 

Kicking off the list is SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist, one of the latest additions to the FUNimation roster in the Summer Simulcast Season! SHIMONETA takes place in a boring world where the concept of dirty jokes doesn’t exist, and one intrepid woman, the lewd vigilanted Blue Snow, dons a panty mask to stand up against censorship by committing acts of obscene terror!



Heaven’t Lost Property

Flying Panties | Episode 2

The classic and most famous scene from Heaven’s Lost Property— flying panties! Our protagonist Tomoki is a perv with a heart of gold, but sometimes his perverted desires get out of hand…




Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

Panty and Stocking’s Transformation | Episode 1

You can’t talk about underwear without PSG! Panty and Stocking are nasty angels who were banished from the pearly gates for being foul-mouthed bad girls! Now they spend their days hunting ghosts in the lecherous abyss between Heaven and Earth. Watch their beautiful transformation which involves taking off the national day namesake!




Dragon Ball

When You Wish For Panties… | Episode 12

In the original Dragon Ball, Goku and Bulma set out to find the mystical Dragon Balls and make wishes that are out of this world. But what do you do when bad guys find them first and set out to make wishes that could threaten the world? Why the only logical thing of course: wish first for more important things…




One Piece

Steal That Underwear! | Episode 322

Sometimes, you have to twist a person’s arm to make them join your pirate crew, and that is exactly what Luffy did when he wanted Franky to join his crew. How did he go about that? Why the only logical way of course: by taking his underwear!




Honorable Mention: Strike Witches

They’re Not Panties…

The gun-toting, butt-kicking ladies of Strike Witches wear no pants, so their garments are on full display for most of the series. However, technically this shouldn’t be considered a panty shot because, as the girls explain, “they’re not panties, so it’s not embarrassing!” They’re trousers!



What are your favorite FUNimation Panty/Underwear shots in celebration of National Underwear Day?

Once normal girls, these eager beauties volunteered to have their bodies genetically-enhanced in order to join the fight against the deadly alien invaders plaguing the planet.

Should some eager beaver prove to be a quick study in killing, he or she will save Earth from extinction – and collect a hefty reward. But they’d better take some serious notes while class is in session because their slaughtering sensei has eight deadly tentacles just waiting to wreak havoc on humanity!
