Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt Wiki

The city where love and desire fly freely, Daten City.


Daten City is the main setting in the Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt series. Its name derives from the Japanese word, datenshi (堕天使), which means fallen angel.

The flag of Daten City.

Daten City is located on the fault line between Heaven and Hell, making it an easy target of both, demons and ghosts. Daten City seems to be based on the average American state, most likely California. The flag of the city is a fusion of the Japanese and American flags, referencing that the show was made in Japan but is heavily influenced by American animation.

Daten City is a heavily populated metropolis, where most of the characters reside. It consists of many businesses, including stores, restaurants, and manufacturers. Daten City has a great economy, a balanced educational system, a well-structured government, and an exceptional law enforcement system. Daten City is also known for being a huge celebrity spot, as seen in "Sex and the Daten City", and for having a vast number of nightclubs, sex shops and motels, which are mostly named after sexual puns and jokes.

Panty and Stocking were sent to Daten City in order to keep it from being taken over by darkness and ghosts. Garterbelt, the reverend of Daten City, was also apparently chosen by Heaven for this matter. The city has been constantly destroyed by various ghosts but has been reconstructed just as much. During "Bitch Girls" and "Bitch Girls: 2 Bitch", it was revealed a gate to Hell lies between the huge twin buildings located in the heart of Daten City.

  • In January 2011, Adult Swim hosted a section in its forums titled "Daten City", an obvious reference to the city in Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. Due to this, some people believed that Adult Swim would be airing the series. However, the name of the section was soon changed back to "Other Anime" and Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt never aired on Adult Swim.[1]
