The Noitamina programming block began streaming the preview video for the first episode of the Punch Line television anime on Tuesday.

Chiranosuke: Yuta Iridatsu, your soul has separated from your body!
Yuta: Whoa! Seriously!?
Chiranosuke: Even so, don't be thinking you can just spend all your time seeing girls in the rough!
Yuta: ...Why not?
Chiranosuke: Because if you see a girl's panties, humanity will be destroyed.
Yuta: Argh! I don't get it!
Chiranosuke: Punch Line episode one - Panty Panic.
Yuta: For the sake of the happiest future!
