I am against it. It's just not as fun actually seeing it. Takes away a lot.

I think there is a large group of people that don't mind the fanservice itself (i.e, they could take it or leave it), but very much mind the perception they feel it gives others of anime.


I think this is it exactly. I find the fan service in most anime to be harmless, but worry that people will think I'm a perv for watching it lol.

For me, fanservice should not detract from the story and should be considered as a bit of an 'extra' that goes along with the main course.

As a man I'll never deny it.

But storyline == more important. It can be annoying where it isn't worked into the story and they ignore the very obvious panty shots then entire story after flashing them every scene. But still, I'm not sure how well i could quit cold turkey and watch something without any. There are some anime's where i could use some.....service...

also, school days is one of the most hilarious stories ever, that ending made me collapse laughing.

It all depends on the context really. If its a comedy or something like Highschool of the Dead its fine. But If the anime is going for a more serious tone it really just feels out of place and really like they threw it in just to get some more people to like it. That's why I'm kinda glad they got rid of that panty shot in K-on! Even though it is a comedy it was just kinda out of place in the manga and I think the anime benefited from its omission.

Glad you said that. Because:



However, fan service does not have to be sexual in nature. Other forms of fanservice include gratuitous amounts of detailed mecha transformation scenes, mascot placings and so-on.

exactly. People need to be clear on what they are talking about. Making assumptions as to meanings. assigning value judgements to aspects that aren't necessarily part of the topic etc. only confuse the issue.
