Getting tired of ecchi in anime
Posted 7/31/10
It seems that some of the new anime that's coming out this year is not only unoriginal, but has an either large or small amount of ecchi, which I believe could be a good series without it. Let it be known that I have no problem with this particular genre. In fact, I happen to enjoy a good ecchi series from time to time, but it annoys me to no end when the anime is so over-glorified with it that the actual plot is ignored.

It's as if the creators are saying, "Hey, our anime is crap and unoriginal, but look at these titties!"

I just don't understand it, and the people who try to defend the fact that, "It's a good show because of the ecchi!" are illogical. It shouldn't be a good show because of the random "pantsu" shots or nude scenes, it should be a good show because of the plot or the animation or even the character depth, but I guess that's just me.

For example, Seikon no Qwaser . My opinion? By far the worst thing I've seen, and I've seen a lot of things, but it stays popular because of its over-glorified ecchi scenes, and if that's not the reason than I don't know what is.

So please explain, what is it with this obsessive fascination with flimsy 2D characters?

I don't like ecchi either, it's really unnecessary and not needed all the time. It makes the show distasteful to me, especially if that's all the show is about. I guess the illustrators are just giving what [certain] people want: perverted content in nonfictional fantasy. Nude scenes are funny though, when displayed through a comedy sense. Ecchi will never go away though, because some people like it. Just be happy that most shows have censored some of the ecchi scenes like in the picture

i hate qwaser for the reason that it tries to be a porn series but fails on so many levels. If they want to make porn then just make porn, on the ecchi note that's what sells and that's what the market wants. It's about supply and demand and to be frank those series are targted towards lonely otaku geeks my self in turn for profit. I am going to be frank ecchi and panty shots have been in anime for years before you and i was born. I honestly can careless for nudity or pantyshots since they don't do anything for me anymore but that's another whole ordeal I don't want to talk about. On 2D characters in general some people like me sadly just hate woman and want to turn to an alternative that will always be there for them... sigh yeah i am not going any further with that as well.

It is a cheap and easy way to build an audience. We see this same thing with shock humor in American Sitcoms. It takes great skill and hard work to create a unique story with interesting characters you care about.

"I don't believe they just did that! I must tune-in next week, to see what they do to top that!"

I don't mind ecchi and like it to some extent. I like perverted comedies like Mitsudomoe and Seitokai Yakuindomo just from this season alone. However I do agree with Seikon no Qwaser is garbage in almost every way and that also includes Demon King Daimao. Daimao had a very in-depth story compressed in twelve episodes which was extremely rushed and not satisfying at all. I found myself watching just for the ecchi and then complain excessively about the crappy story. I like it in moderation, and I will watch it if that's the direction the anime was intended to go (read Kiss x Sis), but if the anime is supposed to have a story, but ecchi is it's only draw then it's not worth watching; even to me.

Just because "it's what sells" doesn't make it good.

so out of my whole post that's all your going to quote?? sigh I will bite, anime is a industry and like most industries they need to make money. They well market this shit so people like me will eat it up and but the figures/dvds/artbooks and so forth because they know that's what I want. They have a strong market for this type of material and to be frank that's what the free market is all about selling shit to people for a profit. Like i have stated before though just avoid those series because to be frank they are meant for basement dwelling lonely otakus to begin with and most of those are men. In short sex sells

^ The artist/creator wanted the ecchi to be like that and beside it is in the manga too.

~

Sex sells and so does ecchi :/ the more ecchi the more people buy the marketing items thus making a profit. I feel this summer lineup was filled with disappointments as all the good shows ended latest of spring. (EX : Drrr) .

Ah :/ 2D boobs are nice huh :] .

There seems to be ALOT of ecchi anime out now. I dont really mind ecchi, but if it shows up alot in the anime then yeah, it will get tiring to see. They will mainly focus on the nude, not the story line itself. I mean come on, do we really need to see those ecchi scenes?
