Panty shots can set the tone for an anime, whether it’s for comical reasons or extremely awkward situations between the main cast of characters. In some cases, they are inadvertent and bring a very memorable first impression to the females who fall victim to this horrifying experience.
When you think of panty shots in anime, the first thing that comes to mind is a genre that not only routinely displays it, but in some cases, exploits it to no end. If you haven’t guessed it by now, it’s the ecchi genre. Naturally, ecchi will have a strong presence on this list. Fans of that anime type will without a doubt recognize some of these images on this list. We will also exhibit some scenarios from other categories as well.
These panty shots are ranked based on several factors, they include, but not limited to, memorable situations, presentation, color and type.
Well here we are, the moment of truth. It’s time to bask in the unpleasant or pleasant (depending on who you ask), panty reveals. Honey’s Anime is pleased to bring you this top 10 anime panty shots.
10. Ito Hikiotani/Punch Line
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Apr. 2015 – Jun. 2015
Starting off the list is Ito Hikiotani from the anime Punch Line. In the first episode, the spirit of Yuta was in search for this ritual book to reunite his spirit and his body. He was told that the book was somewhere in the house he is living in. Easy enough right? Well the first thing he found was Ito, and with that came a glimpse of her wonderful striped panties. Needless to say he got more than he bargained for. That partnered with another panty shot shortly after, set the rules for the anime in the scene that followed.
Ito is a blonde haired shut-in who tends to avoid people as best as she can. All she was looking for was some shampoo. However in this situation, it couldn’t be helped. Who’s to know that a spirit is watching her stretch? Luckily for Yuta, Ito wasn’t aware of his presence. I think it’s safe to say things would have ended up a little differently, had he not been a spirit. What makes this unique is that he didn’t have any backlash from Ito, due to him being invisible to her. However, there was a negative impact that he certainly felt shortly thereafter.
9. Rikantz Seaberry/ Daimidaler: Prince vs. Penguin Empire (Kenzen Robo Daimidaler)
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Apr. 2014 – Jun. 2014
The next one on our list is a rather peculiar inclusion. Rikantz Seaberry or better known as “Ritz” in the series Daimidaler: Prince vs. Penguin is a very passionate and loving female to the penguin empire. When she found out that they were doing battle with the Robo Daimidaler in episode three, she wanted quick entry into the penguin fold. She has a lot to offer, including kindness and loyalty. On that note, what did Ritz have to do to get what she wanted? Well, I’m glad you asked. She had to go through what was known as a “penguin exam” to appease her own goals.
Before the penguin exam took place, the empire needed to take “important” information from her. So they quickly undressed her with little to no resistance from Ritz. They compiled her body measurements and left her in those lovely pale blue panties. Barely even fazed at what just transpired, she got dressed back up and was ready for her exam. There is one task she was ordered to do, and that was to defeat one of their own kind. Her love for the penguin empire escalates even further as the series unfolds. There aren’t any females on this list that had penguins caress them and expose their panties for their “research”. It’s a unique situation to say the least, so with that, we feel it should get a spot on this list.
8. Asia Argento/High School DxD
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Jan. 2012 – Mar. 2012
Well here we are at number eight and you had to know that someone from High School DxD was going to make this list. In this case it happens to be the sweet and innocent Asia Argento. We’re going all the way back to the first season and episode two, where the main perv, uh, protagonist Issei Hyoudou meets Asia.
After a late night out doing his devil duties, Issei wakes up the next day and heads to school only to find a female in religious garb, face-down on the ground. Issei of course, opts to ogle at her greatly detailed rear-end, instead of try to help her up. After an awkward introduction, he finds out her name is Asia Argento. With this anime giving us so many glorious panty shots, it was hard to nail down one that we thought was really important. However, we felt that the debut to Asia in the series mixed with Issei’s reaction was enough to put this on our list.
7. Kotori Itsuka/ Date A Live
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Apr. 2013 – Jun. 2013
We get introduced to a high-spirited and cute, Kotori Itsuka, just minutes into the first episode. She is seen dancing in her older brother’s room, having a blast. It’s clear her intentions are to give Shidou Itsuka one heck of a wake-up call. It was then; the way Kotori chose to get him up that left an impact on us. We’ll guide you through this.
Kotori proceeds to jump up and down on his bed, before jumping in the air with some bad intentions. We as the audience, quickly forget what her true intentions are when her pink and white striped panties are flashed in mid-air. They were shown elegantly in slow motion, so the viewers had ample time to catch more than just a glimpse. Then before we know it, her endgame appears and she sends her one foot into his stomach. Her skirt blissfully soaring in the air was a treat for us fans, but not so much for Shidou Itsuka. What a way to wake up! Somehow he managed to go back to sleep before getting up on his own, after scaring Kotori away.
6. Hinata Hino/ The Future Diary (Mirai Nikki)
- Episodes: 26
- Aired: Oct. 2011 – Apr. 2012
Episode eight brings us, an extreme example at what can happen at school when you’re lending a helping hand. Hinata Hino was in class and she overheard someone talking down to Yukiteru Amano, the main character of the series, who had recently just transferred to a new school. Hinata smacked the bully with a notebook and it knocked Yukiteru, of all people to the ground. She outstretched her hand to help him up, and sure enough, he reached out and fell forward and tugged down Hinata’s shorts. The consequences of that mix up revealed her adorable green and white striped panties to the whole classroom.
Suffice it to say, Hinata wasn’t very pleased with Yukiteru’s mishap and she slapped him with her notebook before the teacher came in. We selected this particular panty shot at the number six slot, because of strictly the design and situation. Not only does the panty shot show off a cute little ribbon on the front, but you can also imagine how embarrassed Hinata must have been. What an unenviable situation, having her fellow classmates gawk at her panties. This one takes the cake for being the most embarrassing reveal on this list.
5. Yuki Nonaka/ The Testament of Sister New Devil OVA (Shinmai Maou no Testament OVA)
- Episodes: 1
- Aired: Jun. 2015
Here we are at the mid-way point, and we’ve come to our first OVA on the list. If you’re a fan of The Testament of Sister New Devil series, then you will enjoy this raunchy OVA. As if the series wasn’t already chock full of fan service, the OVA takes it up a notch. Around the eight minute mark, the main protagonist Basara Toujou sits down to enjoy a home-cooked soup from succubus Maria Naruse. After biting into his soup, Basara, happens to notice something rather odd and stretchy. What did he find? Well Mio Naruse’s panties!
The childhood friend of Basara, Yuki Nonaka, comes out to the dining room and gets the impression from Maria that he enjoys to eat panties. Not to be outdone, Yuki proceeds to take off her blue and white panties right in front of the two and offer them to Basara to eat. Of course he doesn’t eat them, but the fact that Yuki would even consider offering them up for him to eat is on a whole new level for this list. I don’t think I need to say why we found this memorable, the proof is in the panty, uh, pudding.
4. Sohara Mitsuki/ Heaven's Lost Property (Sora no Otoshimono)
- Episodes: 13
- Aired: Oct. 2009 – Dec. 2009
This one has some similarities to our number six selection, in regards to the setting. The reason this one is rated at number four, is simply because of two reasons, number one Sohara Mitsuki and Tomoki Sakurai are childhood friends. That can be a recipe for disaster to have a childhood friend, like Tomoki, get a solid peep at her panties. At the same time, it can make things more intimate. The second reason is because Sohara was dawning one of, if not, the cutest panties on this list. I’ll set the stage for you.
The end of class came and Sohara walked over to give Tomoki his lunch that she made for him. They were the last few in the classroom, and on their way out, Sohara, tripped and fell face first on the ground. While vulnerable and shocked, Tomoki was greeted with a panty shot of his voluptuous childhood friend. Sohara had an adorable teddy bear on her white panties. She was fortunate enough not have the entire class around her when this happened on episode two of this series. It would not be the last time Tomoki would see Sohara’s panties, but we felt those panties were too lovely to pass up.
3. Bulma Brief/Dragon Ball
- Episodes: 153
- Aired: Feb. 1986 – Apr. 1989
Ahh yes, Dragon Ball, what a classic and by far the oldest anime on the list, with good reason. In episode fifty, the group of Krillin, Goku and of course Bulma, are exploring an underwater cave, in search for a dragon ball. On their path to finding the treasure, they come across numerous booby-traps. The one that stood out to us was the lava pit. Upon falling, the main protagonist Goku, uses his power pole to save himself and his friends from the lava that they were merely inches from touching. So much so, Bulma ended up getting her strawberry designed panties burned. Once she reaches the ground safely, she is sure to let the boys know how close she was to death.
This isn’t the only panty shot that we receive from Bulma throughout the series, but this one was chosen carefully due to the implications of what followed shortly after their adventure in that cave. Even after roughly thirty years, this still has a place in some of our hearts. It’s especially humorous that a hot-head like Bulma, literally and figuratively gets burned.
2. Eri Shinkai/ AIKa R-16: Virgin Mission
- Episodes: 3
- Aired: Apr. 2007 – Oct. 2007
Coming in at number two is an OVA series that is synonymous for their obligatory panty shots. It’s rare to see an anime go through so much trouble to find ways for females to expose their panties. I suppose, giving the entire female cast short skirts and action scenes, is a start. Why not have them fall over in compromising positions, like face first with their butt in the air? You got it! That’s AIKa R-16: Virgin Mission in a nutshell. If you like panty shots, this is arguable the king of panty shots.
Eri Shinkai is one of the three main protagonists in this series, along with Karen Minamino and the titular character Aika Sumeragi. In this particular scene of episode one, we have Eri and Aika under attack by several females that were on the yacht with them. After a large fight breaks out in Eri’s room, involving tranquilizer darts. Aika, with a little bit of help from Eri, dispatch the threat and to their surprise they find some sort of device near the attackers tailbone. Of course, the way they noticed this, was that one of the girls was passed out hanging over the side of the couch. The entire scene had Eri, fight/hide in her lingerie, which included a lovely red and black lace underwear.
1. Saeko Busujima/ High School of the Dead
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Jul. 2010 – Sep. 2010
Congratulations, we’ve made it to number one! I don’t think this one is too shocking for some people out there. The reasoning for this to be our number one selection is for many reasons. The first reason is because, well, it’s the only one on the list that exploits a thong. Another reason is because; she is fighting zombies with an apron on and a thong underneath. Saeko brings bloodshed, a sword, an apron and a thong, what a combination in this episode. Did I mention a thong?
High School of the Dead is one of the only ones on this list that the female is comfortable with her panties revealed the way they are. Not only does Saeko rock that look, but she looks great mutilating zombies as well. This takes place in episode seven, when the group of survivors spots a little girl named Alice Maresato and her little dog in the distance. They move out to go save her from the horde of impending death, better known as zombies. Saeko proves that you can be sexual, but deliver an intimidating performance that is more than capable.
Well, there you are folks. That was an interesting jog down memory lane. Panty shots aren’t for everyone, but for the ones who do enjoy them, we hope that this list either brought some humor to you, or at least gave you some new anime to watch.
Since we spanned all genres of anime, it was extremely hard to narrow down a top 10, so naturally there are going to be omissions. We encourage you to share with us in the comments section below, some of the more memorable panty shots you have seen in anime. We would love to hear them!
