Just you. You can find ecchi stuff back from the 80's and 90's if you look. It just seems more ecchi now I think because of better art styles.

Yep, just you. :)

Admittedly different seasons will have more or less, but I don't think the overall proportion has changed in a long time.

I'm with the other posters. Ecchi has existed within anime for years. Some just use it more than others.

Does ecchi count the same as fanservice?

It's not that anime itself is becoming more ecchi, it's that ecchi anime are becoming more popular- or something along those lines.

you're just being exposed to a higher quantity of anime than you were before. anime is not becoming more ecchi, nor is it losing it's quality.

The sky has been falling for me the last decade of watching anime. I still watch 1-5 airing shows I find good with every new season.

As for more ecchi or not - having a busty lass in compromising positions has always sold. While there has always been shows based mainly on that content, I am one to believe having the random perverted shot during a touching moment can make a show lose points. I remember watching White Album 2 during a dramatic moment with a random upskirt shot that really killed it for me.

During the bubble I was one to say how desperate they are with the random grabs and steam filled TV scenes, but those things happened well before then as well. I believe that post has it right - there is just more available for the west now to see it.

There's never too much ecchi. Just poorly timed ecchi.

Nothing wrong with some sexy animation. It's not getting more prevalent but you are most likely being exposed to more offering and have a broader knowledge of what is being produced.
