I'm tired of excessive violence... said no one, ever. Like, seriously, why do people raise their pitchforks against harmless sexual shit, yet eat up excessively violent shit? People have some strange ass standards, in this world. Seriously.

Amen!!!

anything that says "Seinen" may be suspect, but maybe not...you can usually guess from the cover art and description, but "Ecchi" is just more specific...a "Ecchi" genre tag would be very nice.

personally, i <3 SOL, moe, cgdct, 4 girl comedy, all that but i dont want to see fan service at all. i can usually tell right away from the description/art but sometimes something looks cute and then takes a left turn somewhere...i want to avoid fan service primarily due to spiritual practice, but i would guess some folks maybe would like to know what's okay to watch with their kids as well...and also i WOULD like a tag or something for graphic violence, i want to see that even less than fan service!!!

i feel like i get plenty of stuff to watch on CRoll that fits my preferences. i always love the variety of shows and that it's not all "Shonen" CRoll is def my go to spot. I'd rather watch anime here then anywhere else :)

I agree with this. I'm pretty tired of seeing so much violent stuff, lewd is better. I'd be all for it if people would stop complaining about sex and stated complaining about violence, but to 99% of people I'm the weird one for thinking that.

I hate excessive violence and gore. One reason I couldn't get past episode 1 of Attack on Titan. So yeah, I don't mind fan service since I am not sexually attracted to 2d people, but I do despise excessive violence and gore.

The sexy(?) fall into a fountain is eye-rolly, but at least the story has detoured there for a bit. It bugs me far more when, say, two characters are talking normally and the camera gives us a low angle shot of the girl's panties. Unless the talk switched to panties or there is someone else present and creeping on the girl there's just no reason for that.

While I get what you're saying, I usually find that it's much less likely to see violence, particularly of a more extreme variety, in otherwise non-violent series. Sexual content, however, gets shoehorned in everywhere, whether it "belongs" there or not. It's a lot harder for people to avoid.

Pretty much yeah.

I just feel like I lose more and more brain cells every time one of these threads pops up...

Have you ever seen the second OP for Girls Bravo?

One of the sequences is the girls transitioning from clothed to nude as they turn, and Kirie's breasts actually appear to rise higher after the transition.

You people complain so much about fanservice that it's annoying to me.

Again the sex is worse than violence statements who think killing people is fine but no sex, please.
Melty Sky I understand your stance your not against sexual things your just not into light physical male-oriented comedies. In other words your not against sexual fanservice overall just that form of comedy. Now a harem often is basically a light comedy and if your not into that type of comedy that is ok.
If you're into looking at guys but not girls I understand complaints if you add I'm not into women to your complaint.

All combat, robots are fan service also. Many plays do very well showing no violence or sexual stuff. But Shakespeare has tons of sexual joke fan service and sexual matters in his plays, yes even the extremely great ones not the just great ones. So I totally reject the idea of sex being the thing that needs to be removed if anything all violence should be removed first.

japan is really into its incest stuff and for those who have been taught the incest taboo, it can be rough. Was just reading about Ancient Egypt and was surprised how much kings married their daughters, I knew sisters most of the time but the daughters surprise me.

I know it was a typo, but just the thought that a "pantry shot" could be a thing had me laughing my head off

I am of the same opinion. I love a good face plant into a girl's crotch for our harem hero. But, unless there is some reason, some advancement to the story, it becomes sort of tasteless. And that takes away from the story. Well, my enjoyment of it anyway. I love a good sexy moment but at least take the time to make it part of the story. I mean that 2 min of upskirt exploration is great if it is protag-kun being stimulated, being set up for tsundere-san to beat the crap out of, or even the old beach trope. If it seems to me to be just 2 min to fill in for lack of content to extend the anime to say 20 min from 18 min I begin to not enjoy or even dislike the anime.

There is a borderline obscene amount of food porn in that shot.
