I've seen it so much I've sort of become desensitised to it. You're right, sex sells, and regardless of integrity that's why they do it. The Japanese like that sort of stuff so I don't see it going anywhere. Given how women are pretty much second class citizens over there, I doubt they'll give a crap about over-sexualising them, even less so if they're fictional.

Its honestly not that big of a deal in moderation. i dont like every minute of a show being pumped full of "plot", like that stupid ecchi show where they fought by sucking on their enemies nipples (dont even want to try to recall the name).

I don't see the problem with it, since i don't enjoy that kind of stuff, i don't watch it. There are plenty of shows that dont have perversion in them.

However, you also need to understand, a naked body is not always perverted. for example, Rei ayanami being shown bare breasted in her apartment. That was to display her innocence and non understanding of right and wrong (not knowing the significance of showing a guy her breasts). Or lets say, in Mardock scramble, when ballot is shown naked, its not done in a perverted way, its simply how the scene was directed. In some cases, nudity can be used to cause a certain emotional impact on the audience that is not intended to be perverted and can sometimes create a very beautiful scene.

I find the naked body to be a work of art, not a perverted object to fap to.

However in alot of anime now days, there is way to much "ecchi" to the point it almost makes the show disgusting (mostly when they turn a 11 year old character into a sex symbol). But once again, if you dont enjoy it... dont watch it.

First of all, welcome to CR UVmatician. But yeah it's fanservice and money ya da ya da. It does get tiring sometimes when an anime has to resort to "fapping material" to maintain an audience so I get where you're coming from. Just roll with it I guess or cut the show off and find another series.

I'm not bothered by fanservice shows, I usually tend to avoid them though.
My issue with fanservice is that I feel that it can cheapen a story. It has its place is silly shows like NGNL but in shows that are trying to be more serious it causes the story to lose its effect. It's hard for me to take a characters deep soul searching monologue seriously when two episodes ago said character was flashing their panties at me.

Everything has fan service when you think about it. Every single HBO show reveals just as much or more parts. Its part of the times, it may be disrespectful but they have to resort to it in order to get viewers.

No Game No Life

There is a bit of a ratings system on CR. You can Google the names, to give you a better idea of what they mean. I don't recommend an image search though

The forums can be very helpful too. I'm sure there are people who share your views or are at least sympathetic. Don't let the heckling get too you. Everything is in good fun

I don't mind all that much, It's all just typical fan service and every once in a while a good show comes along that doesn't need to cater to those standards and it ends up being pretty damn dope

Dude why do you care? personally I never thought about it before but they aren't using girls they have no intention of doing so and no game no life is a great anime ecchi and romance is a category in anime it shouldn't be judged I mean like seriously who cares? I respect woman to but even girls watch ecchi anime as well it doesn't matter about the sexual stuff in an anime I mean seriously man some people are pornstars and work for the porn industry they are the real ones at blame

Its really awkward, I'm a girl, and I really want to respect guys and not be lusting after them. I recently had to stop watching Free, it was by far my favorite story on here. But I felt like I couldn't respect men and watch a show that seems to take every opportunity to portray them as sex objects and make them strip.


Changed your post a little.

But really, did any guys buy them Free figurines?

Seriously, you'll be missing out on a lot of great anime if you let fanservice become a barrier for you.
