Does fanservice in an anime change your view on an anime one way or another? One of my favorate animes is High School of the dead the poster child of fanservice I still enjoyed the show to me all the fanservice just enhanced the story for me.

So lets hear your views on fanservice or heck manservice if your so inclined?

it depends on the fanservice. if it fits the story, then it can be good e.g. School days perverted scenes fit the story.


but most fanservice, soaked bras, wind blowing skirts are random and don't fit into the story. So those types of fanservice make the anime WORSE.

just my opinion, if others enjoy that, continue to do so.

As long as the anime has something beyond just fan service going for it.. I can completely ignore the fan service

I personally love fan service being a straight girl, but aside from that, it doesn't change my views on anime at all ^^

I don't like fanservice and it does spoil it a little for me when I'm watching Coppelion and there's a random ass-shot in the middle of a suspenseful scene..
But I do enjoy a little manservice because you can't really ruin a good scene with rippling abs. ;-)

It really depends. There are some animes where the fanservice is the main reason people watch. You expect it in this case and its really disappointing if you don't get it.

There are some animes that have it in good measure. If there are body shots, it's just that...shots of the character's body. Not in a sexualized way or anything. Then there are those animes that have some in there for comic relief. I think those are okay...as long as they don't go overboard.

What REALLY bugs me is serious animes that for no reason just have a filler where they have a 'beach day' or 'peeping moments'. Its a break from the main plot but absolutely nothing significant happens...or anything interesting for that matter. Maybe its just because I don't like fillers but...i mean....come on. If it's gonna be slow, why not add some hints to what's coming up or something. Geez...

Fanservice doesn't make it better or worse.

What makes it worse is the annoying white light censorship. If you weren't going to show it then DON'T. IF you show everything fine, but if you feel the need for the distracting white light then I guess the scene wasn't needed and therefore shouldn't be included!

For me it really depends on what anime or game. For example i don't mind fan service on light hearted characters but it really brings down a character's image when they're generally serious or mature. eg, Lightning Farron, she really doesn't need all those ridiculous costumes in FFXIII-3

A panty shot a day will keep me calm for today. It doesn't matter, but I would watch the series longer if I could.

I don't like it when there's too much fan service, and I don't really notice when there isn't any.

It's fine as long as it is not the main focus of the show. In High School of the Dead (maybe not the best example) an intense scene would happen where they would about to be rescued by a helicopter or something and then the wind blows and girls skirt flies up and PANTY SHOT!!!! It killed any sense of tension. That is when it begins to become bad

Doesn't really matter to me but a panty would be nice....but I like a balance, sometimes, fanservice it's overdone. If it's done right, I'm all for it.
