Jhonen Vasquez, an American comic artist who created the animated television series Invader Zim, has posted about the new fall Gainax television anime Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt this week. Specifically, he talks about the Panty & Stocking character Chuck (pictured at right), a green dog who bears some similarity to GIR (pictured at far right), a robot in a green dog costume who appears in Invader Zim. In the post, he comments that Panty & Stocking:
"…took GIR out of the whorehouse he was working in and gave him a new job! It's nice seeing him get some work, but I gotta say it's a bit on the simple side for my tastes, what with the fart and shit jokes, but the ending is pretty ridiculous, and Gainax produces some of the only Japanese animation I can stand without wishing I was the drinking type, so I'm looking forward to more."
Vasquez also notes that Chuck "seems a little underused in those[sic] new show," but carrying on with the joke that the character is, in fact, GIR, he surmises that it's all the creators can expect from "what's left of his mind after all the heroin."
