Fanservice = I don't care I'll still watch the damn show.

I have shows where I like the fanservice - High School DxD

I have shows where I don't like the fanservice - The Pet Girl of Sakurasou

If you really want to be a hero and "respect" women, then don't watch anime, don't go on social media, don't watch TV, don't go out in public. Sexuality is everywhere. Get over it.


I don't recall there being fanservice in Sakurasou

Well, I don't personally even notice nor pay that much attention to fanservice anymore.

Some scenes, like underage panty shots and like, I just consider bad taste, rest not so much.
People like boobs. That's it. Nothing to get your jimmies rustled for.

If you don't like ecchi/fanservice, nobody is forcing you to watch it and if you don't like something, then for the love of god don't try to take it away from somebody who does.

I'm though quite amazed that there isn't any kind of rating system in CR, not that I'd care for it but still.

There was plenty of awkward "walking-in" scenes with Aoyama. Then there was a lot of nudity with Mashiro.

I hated the show in general and the fanservice felt forced and awkward.

On one hand it can be really fucking bad. Like remember that time the second episode of SAO 2 had a long creepy pan of a girls vagina. Then again sometimes it's not so bad. I think sexualization is only as bad as the context of the show allows it to be. That creepy shit in SAO was for more gross to me then anything in say Kill la Kill or Gurren Lagann.

I honestly do not mind if it is shown every once in a while, but it does get annoying if you see endless pantsu shots and nudity in almost every episode. As for the anime that actually have those characteristics, I do cringe when they bombard you with all of the sexuality, but I do, In most cases, get past the fact that the anime is going to keep doing this. It's not that it "seriously" bothers me, but it can get a bit out of hand at most times.

I don't particularly care.
As long it's cute (and it's flat) I approve. Prefer it if the girl is NOT portrayed as weak and useless (AKA, a Steph), which I guess it's where the "respect" part of your topic comes from, but I can put up with that too, or more like, I've gotten used to it.

I believe dropping NGNL for that is a bad idea IMO.

But I do think that fanservice at the very least should serve the story in a logical or believable way. If it's just gratuitous, I'd rather they had left it out and used the time for more character or story development.

Don't let media cause you to stop respecting women. Simply respect them. YOU are in control of your feelings. If you need help, know that Christ can help get over addictions.

*blink* You should finish NGNL, its awesome *blink*

Otherwise I dont have much to say here.


Anyone else tired of hearing people spout "NGNL revived anime" "NGNL is revolutionary" "NGNL 10/10" To all those, no. It was 5/10. While it had a great concept, it was brought down by excessive fanservice, lolicon, bsdm, humiliation, masochism and sadism. Just a rant.

For me, I totally see why this can be an issue in peoples eyes, for me I dont see why it needed, but I am not gonna get mad if anything thrown in there, sometimes it ok, and harmless and funny but fan service can get a little strong sometimes, like in the example of No Game No Life, I loved that anime, but the fan service was very strong, and borderline for me sometimes, so it mostly just depends your tastes

o.o I said none of those things and dont see many people say it.

It was enjoyable, it knew how to have fun with all the things you listed.

Not meant to be taken seriously.

And Im not surprised when someone didnt like it.

Miyazaki said the anime industry is in a decline and lost its way. I freaking hate all these animes with over excessive fanservice. When the main focus on an anime is fanservice, I drop that shit like its no ones business. I almost dropped every single show this season. Its pretty sad people find this shit acceptable. Japan is putting out garbage with horrible stories and just putting fanservice over it and people are eating this shit. Its sad.

In this instance, I do believe my opinion is correct. If you think seeing an 11 year old sexualized is ok, then you got problems. NGNL is one of the reasons anime gets a bad rap. The show was a cesspool of adultry and no amount of cool story could save it.

Honestly, I've become immune to fanserivce over the years. It's a little sad IMO. Don't get me wrong, I really like Kill la Kill and it being one of my favourites. The thing I liked most about was that it had a plot and followed the plot as well. The plot is main thing. It does make a little concern but I think it goes down to how much. The age targeting as well.
