As with most visual arts the question you come back to is why?
I think we all can agree a bathing scene will have a lot of the body exposed as that reflects how people dress in real life but where most cultures do draw the line is at showing or at least clearly indicating ones 'private parts' as that would be a social taboo, something we keep back for older teens/adults as part of our sexuality and in our own privacy.

Much of the anime we watch is aimed a a fairly wide age range and may be viewed with others so I guess a kind of 'content code' is what most show producers work to enabling this to happen bringing in the revenue from the TV stations but this can change over time.

It is important for those of us from North America and Europe to understand that there are different ideas of what is 'appropriate' in such areas as relationships between older teens and much younger children, that between figures such as teachers and children and even clothing.

This is one reason why some animes are altered for western audiences by such distributors as 4-Kids (I know some have strong opinions about this), altering frames (drawing on additional clothes) or heavily editing episodes.
Some of us remember the 'panic' about Cardcaptors where it was argued this series promoted Tarot cards!

I hope this makes sense trying to write something that can be understood at whatever level of understanding English we are all at.

Gantz has a newer style of animation and within the first minute or so I think I've seen more....let's just go with more. Than any other series out there. As for older series, I would have to guess that broadcast regulations have probably changed just like television shows over here have changed in the past 20 years.
