It most likely because there more original, more focused towards the plot, and don't focus too much on pointless fanservice.

And the only exception will be made for one Studio Gainax, when they just simply love to decorate their plot line with fan service in abundance.

In this case I agree, sometimes fanservice can be used in conjunction with a plot - instead of being the plot... or having plot elements in place simply to make a situation for fanservice... or the whole plot be fanservice... like Eiken.

The Magical Shopping District Abenobashi is a fine example by Gainax on just how to masterfully blend in subcultural elements with fan service, and still somehow turns out to be the theme of the episode week after week.

Well Gainax has been the premier spoofer of the subculture back to their very early days. Just watch Otaku no Video. Super Otaku Classic!

I'll see your DVD of Otaku no Video and raise you a Asuka Garage Kit. Ok I think we're taking this a little far out of context...

And an ORIGINAL 1981 Astroboy Calendar!

Ok... I'm going to go back to watching tons of anime.

Later Dom... you sure know Otaku...

Well its not like I didn't say there's no exceptions when it comes to fanservice... Ranma 1/2 for example has a fair amount of fanservice, but hey they use them wisely instead of most Anime these days who use them just to get more viewers .

And don't forget The City Hunter, when even Ryu Saeba knows "enough is enough", or we can always count on Kaouri with her trusty hammer to put an end to it.

Oh yea completely forgot about City Hunter ...

Its probably because they never had any much nudity in it beside the occasional shower scenes, waitress from the first episode, and that one episode where that police lady's (can't remember her name at the moment) bras snapped off lol.

Classic ~ (noun) a work recognized as definitive in its field.

Make that plural

And yes, there are various definitions for "classic" and "classics"

If you mean classics is classics as in "food is food" then I guess "classics" is a plural, so 'are' would be used.

Poor analogy.

Food is food
Food items are food items.

Again for the record. The word "classic" and the word "classics" has various meanings. I'm just trying to point out that I did nothing wrong on my very first post.
