Post Reply Does fanservice make an anime better or worst?
Posted 1/25/14
It really depends on the anime. Shows like To love ru it’s fine. Those shows were made for it and don’t really have much more to them. However shows that try to be serious can really be hurt by it. One of the best examples I can think of I High School Of The dead. This show had a good story and good characters. The fan service didn’t help the show at all. If anything it just turned people away. They could have removed all of it and the show would still be just as good.

I used to watch more anime, these days it seems it's always the same stuff over and over..I know you can't re-invent the wheel but some are really pure fan service anime with no content

It really doesn't matter to me. I enjoy fan service, I won't lie, but I also like more serious series. Now, if a series tries to force fan service where fan service does not need to be that's when it annoys me. But even though I just shrug and roll with it.

I can put up with fan service to a certain extent.
I don't mind fan service that fits into a story e.g:

>Free, you can't have fully clothed swimmers
>School days, the anime is solely based on relationships and the perverted things that can result from cheating and dishonesty

But then it gets to the point sometimes when it wrecks an anime for me..
HIGH SCHOOL OF THE FREAKING DEAD.

I was looking forward to a zombie based anime and I get boobs with minds of their own dodging bullets, pants that seem to be desperate to hog the camera and the fan service continues. HOTD was the first and only anime I ever stopped watching because it frustrated me so much.

I'm indifferent. It doesn't make it worse, and I don't mind it, either!

it usually completely ruins an anime for me. some fanservice i can deal with, but panty shots and boobs jiggling every 5 seconds isn't my thing

It doesnt matter to me, but too much gets old after awhile.

As long it's not too heavily overdone, doesn't distract from the show's story, and appeals to me in some way.

It certainly makes it harder to make anime a legit interest while adding absolutely nothing to the show.

depends on the title.

Fanservice isn't "fanservice" just because there's a panty shot or some nudity. It's when there's a panty shot or some well placed "steam" just for the sake of having a nude shot.

(I'm waiting for PeripheralVisionary to use this next bit for a new topic title...)

In short, Not All Panty Shots are Created Equal!

But when fan service exists, it still can fit with the title and genre and be justified. KissXSis was FILLED with allusions to sex, but that's kinda what the series was about: playfully hinting at fetishes and sexual taboos. Inukami was a favorite series of mine for a while. Fanservice and Blue Elephants abound! But it still kinda fit.


Something like HS DxD or Freezing? Totally not. Cross Ange? The female on female rape scene was a bit over the top, but ok, kinda can see it as legit. Some of the other fanservicey moments? Totally not.

So yeah. depends on the title and genre...

If it helps the story or fits a characters personality.

Honestly I don't care as long as there's no queerbaiting. If there's any queerbaiting, I'm out.
