The name? Pansuto, which is short for Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, as announced by the newest edition of Newtype.
The characters? Two angels, the blond idol-ish Panty and the goth loli Stocking.
The mission? To fight "ghosts" on Earth.
The creators? A total assload of veteran staffers from such productions as Gurren-Lagann, FLCL, Diebuster.
Hm. Don't know quite what to think about this whole thing, except that the art style looks rad, and that Panty probably got her name from the shape of her gun barrel, and that Stocking wears a single stocking. From the looks of it this might not be the "1930s Britain" thing they were hiring out for, so there's a chance of something else in the pipeline (steampunk Evangelion!), but that's just pure speculation on my part.
