It would have to be To-Love-Ru (the 2nd and 3rd Season are nothing but fanservice & I LOVE IT!!!)

I think people are missing the point. The question is not which shows have excessive panty shots and the like. but which ones would be unmemorable without the said panty and boob shots.

To my mind HOTD would have been better without it's attempts at upskirts and so called 'matrix boobs', I point to Sukabane Hime as a show with horror elements and skirts which defied physics to keep even 'natural' fanservice from occuring. It was an awesome show.

On the other end of the scale. What is Queen's Blade other than the anime equivalent of women's naked mud wrestling? Let's be honest the plot and the world are an excuse for soft porn. Take that away and the show wouldn't exist.

Frankly I'm not against 'fanservice' as we've been using the term (risque exposure shots) but it doesn't really do anything for me either. there are very few anime that would not be improved by a reduction at least of panty shots and the like. and most anime that wouldn't be improved are... not to my taste.

I do make an exception for the original agent Aika. when it came out the fan service was so uniquely over the top as to be funny. The invention of new camera angles and the lingering question "why is everyone wearing white granny panties?" Made it amusing. Once. that was nearly 20 years ago. without that sillyness .. I don't know, it'd be mediocre rule 63 bond movie. okay but nothing special.

Fan service animes are a guilty pleasure of mine. I'm not trying to put them down (Heck HotD is a great anime for a fanservice anime). I just was thinking about some of these and know there are some that would be un-watchable without it.

HotD is at the top of the list because they went excessively overboard with the fan-service, and they added cheesy DIALOGUE as well. They did this almost like a parody of anime with the cheesy dialogue and fan-service. So without adding anything to the anime, if you take away the fanservice you are left with just cheesy dialogue and an underwhelming story.

Never have gotten through Queen's Blade. I think I watched like 2 episodes and the story was just SO terrible not even the gratuitous fanservice couldn't save that one.

I'll half agree with this in regards to the first season only. the second half of the first was good, even without fanservice, and the second season so far has been really good.

Hyperdimension Neptunia. I don't even get the point of that story (I can tell that there was one, but I had trouble finding it), and that was the only one that I watched that would be nothing without fanservice.

Gintama.

or

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.


I loved Code Geass in spite of fanservice, not because of it. The fs always just felt stupid and tacked on. It was practically non-existent in season one (I know there was brief semi-nudity but it never happened for the sake of happening)... then season two happened.

Le sigh.

I vote Ikkitôsen. The idea of the show is good, and the creators could have chosen to do an action-packed, modern-day recreation of Three Kingdoms awesomeness, but they instead opt for (badly-drawn) boobs every time. Disappointing. I mean, if there were a bit of fan service in there to go with a good plot, that'd be fine, but the plot is shit, quite frankly, and all the stupid boobage doesn't make it any better.

Fairy Tail.

How anybody could possibly take that shounen seriously is beyond me.

Need more chapter 355s

Crunchyroll misunderstands everything. =/
Queen's blade imo would be great without the fanservice.
Honestly i would have to say project a-ko since it's fanservice done right.. back in the late 80's when it was respectable.
Golden boy would not be golden boy without the fanservice that's the comedy and the whole reason i dived into the shit-fest of harems and ecchi that is my list. Plastic nee-san definitely plastic nee-san.

Because it's good and respectable and not nearly as bad as people hype it up to being.
People misunderstand that theirs varying levels of fanservice that can be respected and is just downright embarrassing and degrading.
Also you clearly don't get the question because if you did you would be praising fairy tail instead of saying something unrelated.
