It's not an anime.
It's a game; A fighting game, to be exact.

Soul Calibur 4 for the X-Box 360 and the PS3.

See and search Wiki for more info. Too lazy to type in some moar.

Fan service solely or sexually pleases fans. Ecchi is sexual content. Feel free to add on or delete what I haven't or have said. Can you say ecchi and fan service are the same?
We see some fan service in Code Geass. We see ecchi in Asu no Yoichi. Can you say Code Geass has/is ecchi?
If you mentioned "ecchi", how do you explain it?


I would not say ecchi and fan service are the same.

In a broad sense, fan service is not necessarily sexual. When you think of it as something "for the fans" it can easily extend into gags and references, like having the strike witches in Zettai karen children, or Konata watching Haruhi in lucky star, or the multitude of gundam references in hayate no gotoku. Things like that don't do anything for the plot or character development, they wouldn't even be amusing if you hadn't seen / weren't a fan of the show they are alluding to. You could probably consider "karaoke" episodes to be a form of fanservice, because they are just there to show off a seiyu pipes to her adoring fans...well that and sell their CDs.

You also have to realize people use "ecchi" to refer to the Japanese word meaning perversion, and "ecchi" referring to the genre of anime that is centered around sexuality. This is kind of a distinction gets blurred when people talk about anime. So is Code geass ecchi? no, it has ecchi, or rather, I would say it has fan service. I'd say Asu no Yoichi is ecchi because the main character can't go like 5 minutes without being violated by/violating someone (like any good harem anime).

Not much for discussion and this can simply be googled. People are going off topic anyway
