About Fairy Tail
Posted 9/18/11
There's a TL:DR: for those who can't read. Just skim down.

For the past dozen or so episodes, I've noticed an increasingly heavy change. That is, the level of perverseness in the show. It seems that every time a new episode comes out, the (female) characters clothing gets lighter and lighter. The fight between Erza and Erza should be obvious, just look at that bust. Back at the start of Fairy Tail, her breasts were far smaller than that. I'm pretty good at that kind of stuff, having a literal plethora of useless skills.

I just started watching Fairy Tail episode 97, and the first thing there is is a naked Lucy in the shower. The only censoring is the fact that there's no genitals or nipples showing. That's pretty strong for a kids show, isn't it?

I liked Fairy Tail because it felt like a fun, innocent adventure. I fear that it's being dragged into the swamp of desperation, causing them to pull silly tactics to lure viewers. I'll admit, I like me some good nudity here and there (Although I prefer breasts to be small-medium), but this is getting a tad annoying.

Do you fine Crunchyrollers believe that Fairy Tail is slowly dying? Or is this just some new ploy to gain income? Whichever it is, I hope it's kept to a minimum.

Thank you for reading this post.

TL:DR: Fairy Tail becoming perverse, aiming for older viewers?

NOTE: I am NOT complaining about the series. I'm just bitching. There is a difference.

eewwww, that is pretty gross. i always thought that fairy tail was aimed for teens, and teens these days, i guarantee you, have seen alot worse. alot of anime contains alot of perviness, but that doesn't mean its good.

the japan/America debate this show is aimed at people around 13-26 so a litle service for people like me is okay every now and then however I don't know the reason. Different directors or something else also go watch the fairy-tale ova it's about the same but hey a little service for the fans is needed from time to time imo. No the show isn't dying because of little service either....aye but I understand your rant, go read the manga and you will see lucy's bust is about the same as it is now.

@Bubba: I guess it probably would turn the female viewers off. I know that if I was forced to watch a show where the men were half nake-...Wait. I forgot about Grey. Whatever, he's good looking. I guess it's aimed for teens, but it feels more like a kids show to me. By the way, I'm referring to kids as in ages 10-14, not 9 and under. Sorry for any misunderstandings.

@Cecil: Firstly, yeah Lucy's bust is basically the same. I was talking about Erza's, which has visibly changed. Seems she went from a B+ to a solid E. I'm perfectly fine with some service (Heck, I'm a guy, I like it), but I don't like it when it's a bit too far. If I start seeing panty shots, I'm going to start kicking someone. I actually read some of the manga, but it's too difficult on my slow connection. I have to go into town to download, which is how I get my anime. At least I can browse forums...I guess you're right, I may be overreacting. It seems as though morals in anime have been...Dipping. I guess this is the "Age of Ecchi", which I hope passes soon. I want more shows like Steins;Gate.

I generally do not nitpick the differences in those areas, and their breasts could've shrunk and I probably wouldn't care about the change. I'm in it for the story, art, magic, different personalities, the fights, but the differences you mention in the first thread are not important to me.

However on the flip side I tend to get annoyed that the underwear is over played in most anime and Ezra's fight is no different, she doesn't bleed she get's battle damage nude.

Very valid reasoning. I'm mostly watching for the same reason as you, but I don't care about the story. I do wish that there was some blood, but it should be natural. I'm not talking like in that god-forsaken Bleach where everybody gets slashed a perfect line on the shoulders. Around a 20% level of blood would be good, with Bleach being roughly 90%. Ugh, that show drives me nuts.

Honestly the anime version of Fairy Tail is a joke, too much fucking gag/slapstick comedy wasting screen time. It doesn't help when the series has excess amount of sexual fanservice, if I want that level of ecchi I can just fap to hentai.

Meh whatever I'll just stick to the manga version.

i want to point out that in early episodes when the show first started there were scenes of lucy bathing as well as one of erza showering. so this level of fan service is not new to fairy tail.

Exactly. The anime rarely if ever strays from the manga scenes. That bathtub scene with Lucy and Kana was in the manga as well. The only difference I've noticed from the earlier episodes up until now is that the service scenes are no longer played as a gag or for pure comic relief as much as they used to be. Mashima probably figured he has to up the ecchi a little since the action shots aren't yet Big 3 level.

This can be headed to that TV-MA that FUNimation posted on one of the Fairy Tail episodes on youtube.

But it's already been mentioned that the scene was in the manga too. Even the latest chapter of the manga has a scene very similar scene to that one. Your just one of those delusional fans who think that a manga will always be better than anime.

Well it doesn't really bother me at all personally. But then again I'm 24, so I can see your argument about how it may not be right for children. Still fanservice in even shonen anime is nothing new. Bleach has done it. Heck even One Piece had a questionable shower scene in Thriller Bark. There is definitely no denying that these are all kid/teenager shows, yet its not like the japanese government has taken any action to censor material like this. I guess the justification behind it would be that there is a different level of acceptance towards fanservicy moments like that in Japan that we here in America are accustomed to.

Not really a kids show :P
Teens know what boobs are :P

And there isn`t that much fanservice in it, I don`t notice most of it.
Don`t be such a prude
