Who cares?


The OP, hence the thread...

To my knowledge, there is already a tag with "fanservice" in place already. I haven't really noticed if the tags are used properly since I tend to research which shows I'll be watching this season, but it is there.

I was about to say you brought up at least two good points, but then I lost count.

Pretty much this, watching Roshi sexually assualt a girl in Dragon Ball Super disturbed me.

Is the show aimed at teen boys?

then there will likely be fan service


Yeah, shounen, particularly romantic comedies, will tend to be crammed full of fan service. Seinen, Josei and Shoujo as a whole will tend to have less of it although there certainly are exceptions to this rule. Also, when you do find a seinen with heavy fan service it will tend to be WAY more explicit than the stuff you find in even the most perverted shounen.

It also really depends on what the OP means by fan service. Some people equate any sexually explicit content as fan service regardless of context and others would consider only gratuitous content made for the sole purpose of pandering to the audience as fan service. I am in the latter group.

Master Roshi hardly counts, hes been sexually assaulting women for 20 years, the old style anime isn't what we are talking about; it's the new anime that's been doing it. Romance don't count and a few comedies also.

No, you're not the only one. My pet peeve is the ridiculously sized boobs on so many characters.. in reality those would be super heavy and the girl would have a bra with super wide straps to hold them up.. I guess anime boobs are filled with helium.

I've skipped anime's because of this.

But everything has a start and its older anime that led to what we currently have now, so it is relevant to talk about. It just didn't start overnight recently, this was something that has appeared in anime since the 70's. I just find it sad that in its modern iteration the DBS would keep the sexual fanservice, especially given the fact that its a children's show.

Just me rambling, but I find that the word fan service is misused alot or more in the sense that it is used to mean two separate things. Thats pretty evident with your list. In the literal definition fan service is more like filler in its meaning, something added for the fans that doesn't really add to the story. Of course it can be sexual or non-sexual in nature. So most of the shows don't really fit that criteria since sexual aspects of the show weren't added to the show, they were there in the beginning. But in this thread its being used as to describe the ecchi genre, so I will refer to it as such.

@OP like others have said, unless you are just hitting random button, probably do some research but when it comes to ecchi just looking at the cover pic will tell you all you need to know.

I can't help but wonder if the OP was hoping to start a crusade, a revolution against fan service. Hoping to the the real life Sophia Nishikinomiya maybe?

It's no problem as long as you are not gay. Just close the damn door.

Compared to the original Dragon Ball, Super is aimed at a slightly older crowd and more importantly the fan service in DBS is a pale shadow of what it was in the original DB. Seriously go back and watch a bit of the original some time. It is strait up jaw dropping the level of fan service that show had considering the main cast of characters were a bunch of kids.

That's only the first half of the fan service scene. I'm not going to go waste my time trying to hunt down clips of the rest of it, but basically there is a scene after this where Bulma bribes Roshi by offering to flash him, which because of what happens in the clip above, she doesn't realize she has no panties on. Anyway, although I have only seen bits and pieces of Super, I doubt there is anything there that competes with original DB levels of perversion and fan service.

Fan service has been a part of shounen anime for a very long time, and in some respects was worse in the past.
