I had to say this, cause I've been noticing it more and more in the anime lately. But holy crap there's alot of ecchi references in anime now.

For example, Lately, My sister is unusual...wth?
I don't mind well placed ecchi humor or between a couple or in a joke between friends. But this is taking a little far I find.
It's like a rule now, there always has to be something about sex or groping of some kind. Like ServantXService, was hilarious and had its little ecchi moments, but it was tasteful and it didn't drag on and on.

Anyways, I LOVE anime and always will, but I guess I'm just getting old lol

Comments? Opinions? Feel free to let me know if you disagree or feel the same.

Umm... the anime is labeled as ecchi as is the manga...

Depends on the show and whatever source material it's drawing upon.

Most of the time I know what I'm getting into when I watch a show because I look into the basics of the show or manga or light novel or visual novel beforehand.

I really have no problem with a lot of ecchi anime. Some may annoy me for other reasons but it usually isn't just because of the ecchi alone.

Only a few shows this season have that level of ecchi, and they're usually labeled. Just watch the ones without it.

I get laughs at the anime used as the example.

Perhaps the ecchi is not enough or I have seen the same stuff over and over to the point it has no more meaning unless done to the extreme.

TL;DR not enough ecchi for me.

Edit also saying "ecchi" repeatedly is really bad.

I can understand the frustration when a show suddenly escalates or when something seems to be thrown in without regard to the plot, but the show you mentioned has an explicitly sexual premise. Sex sells in Japan just as much as here, so there will always be a few shows with no redeeming qualities outside of their sexual themes. However, there are still plenty of shows where there is little or no fan service or where sex is handled in a more grown up manner. Golden Time and Silver Spoon come to mind, and Wake Up, Girls! seems to be about to tackle the issue head on in the next episode. It's also worth noting that in the days before streaming anime, very few animes without a fan service element were ever brought to North American audiences.

Yeah, this show is labeled as ecchi, as is the source material. I can understand gripes about shows not labeled as ecchi, but this show isn't one of them. I was a little annoyed with the ecchi frog in Wizard Barrister (I was hoping it would be something to point a female friend who doesn't like ecchi to), but it was small enough to over look.

Ecchi. Itchy. Mitchy. Sketchy. Etch a sketch. Skechers. Fetchers. Pitchers. All baseball anime are ecchi.

There's lots of new, non-ecchi anime. You just have to pay attention to the show categories.
