"Sora no Otoshimono's" flying panties become a viral phenomena

by Chris MaGee

If I were to keep track of every goofy Japanese video posted on YouTube... well, A) I wouldn't get a hell of a lot of sleep, and B) the Pow-Wow blog would be an entirely different animal. As it is I try and limit my intake of goofy YouTube vids to sbloopers and cute pets, but occasionally a Japanese YouTube video gets bigger and bigger and goes viral. That's when I figure why not share it with the half-dozen people who haven't already seen it.

Case in point, the opening credits sequence for "Sora no Otoshimono (Misplaced by Heaven)", the Japanese syndicated series based on Suu Minazuki's manga. The series, like the manga, tells the story of a girl who meets an angel (and a rather busty one if the above pic is any indication) that falls from the sky, but if this credit aequence, that has been posted, linked to, and mirrored around the net, is any indicator then this angel's undies fly down from the sky first and in very large numbers.

Thanks to Japanator for being the one to turn me onto this, and check out their report of "Sora no Otoshimono" being turned into a video game! Blasting panties out of the sky...? Who knows.
