After escaping a bus hijacking with the help of masked superhero Strange Juice, Yuuta Iridatsu finds his soul separated from his body and in the care of a perverse cat spirit, Chiranosuke. As a spirit, Yuuta wanders around his residence, the Korai House, aiming to regain his body and observe the other residents: Meika Daihatsu, a genius inventor; Mikatan Narugino, a cheerful idol; Ito Hikiotani, a shut-in NEET; and Rabura Chichibu, a spiritual medium. After catching a glimpse of Narugino's undergarments, Chiranosuke reveals to Yuuta that he becomes exponentially stronger upon seeing panties. However, if he sees another pair while he is still a spirit, his power will cause an asteroid to crash into the earth, ending the world and killing his friends.

Punch Line follows Yuuta as he unravels the mysteries surrounding Korai House, its residents, and a villainous organization attempting to end the world. Will Yuuta be able to save everyone, or will the ever-present threat of panties result in their doom?

I’m very familiar with Uchikoshi’s other works, and I decided to check out his other works, which includes this delightful anime. If the premise weirds you out, don’t worry, the fan service is scarcer than you think. I had that thought when I finished the first episode, but I put my faith into the writer, and he did not disappoint.

The art style, the character designs, and the characters are great. They’re wonderful, and I appreciate the friendship they have. The underwear designs were well-done and beautiful. Seriously, as a woman myself, I loved them and wanted them for myself. The fight scenes are spectacular. ...

Mixed Feelings
I tried to watch Punch Line 4 times, 3 of which I didn't get past the first episode because it's pretty boring. I was finally bored enough to get trough the whole thing so now I can tell you that, it actually gets better towards the end.

Don't get me wrong, this is not a great show, but it's watchable. There's some slightly amuzing moments and honestly fairly interesting plot, altough a bit convoluted.

If you're gonna watch Punch Line do it when you can pay some amount of attention but don't wanna turn your brain off completely.
Not recommended, but also not completely trash.

Wow what a nonsensical anime.

It starts off kinda funny. It distracts you with fanservice.
It drags on quit a bit, i kept waiting for the anime to just get to the point.
But it just devolves more and more into idiotic convoluted nonsense.
With a bunch of stupid characters acting in stupid ways.

A bunch of elements tossed and mashed together. Ghosts, time travel, military, robots,..yeah that sounds good on paper but you still have to write a good story around it with good characters.

This is full of a bunch of lame twists and lame characters.
With an annoying tonal shift.
