Fanservice is cool. Overdoing it isn't.
For some reason Lucy from Fairy Tail gets naked or a lot of bikini shots, stuff like that, and now looking at Lucy's body really disgusts me.

Thanks to all who participated. I let this run a bit longer than I was planning to before replying. It provided me with a good range of responses from the community to consider.

I didn't mind it all that much until I saw Highschool of the Dead.
The only fanservice I liked in Highschool of the dead was the amazing song they played at the end of the first episde all the fanservice in that anime was so frequent it made me sick of all TnA fanservice in any anime when before I didn't care one way or the other.

I'm cool with Free! fanservice. For now.
I didn't mind the fair amount of fanservice in Ladies VS Butlers though because it felt like they did it in a innocent comedic way while Highschool of the Dead was more like "You like tits? LOOK HERE! LOOK HERE! HERE IS SOME MORE! " Such a stupid anime.

As long as it's for comedic purposes, I'm fine with fan service. However, when it's overdone, it can get pretty annoying. But, hey, as long as the story's good, I'm all for whatever the anime may throw at me.

Obvious fanservice can make me drop an anime even if they have a great storyline. I don't mind if it is for comedic purposes, but overdoing it, giving fan service for no particular reason, is pretty annoying. Sometimes, I think it has gone way too out of hand.

I really don't mind fan service as long it is slightly natural like for example "Going to the pool because it is hot"

People put too much emphasis on the sexual aspect of fan service, when it really has more to it.

I'm indifferent to it so long as there isn't blatant fan service every other scene.
As long as it isn't interfering with the anime somehow I'll usually just overlook it.

I'm okay with it when it is used sparingly.

Repeated, it is like repeating the same word over and over again. Power and impact and meaning are lost, and time is being sacrificed for these mindless scenes. I dislike any anime where like 30% of the running time per episode is fan service.

I think its a bit like seasoning you can take a bad piece of meat cover it in seasoning and make it slightly more interesting but at the end of the day your just covering up the base materials shortcomings.

I enjoyed Free! I enjoyed Kill La Kill. These are examples that make a high fan-service show work because there's more there than just the fan-service.

However me and my partner do find bad fanservicey anime very good drinking game material, so It does have its uses.

In a show like How To Raise A Boring Girlfriend, most of the show would be lost without the service because most of it is about the tension / harassment between the main character and those girls.

It's good if there's a point to it.

fan service....eh.
well, im all for it, most of the time.

HOTD - totaly out of place, better off without it.
to love ru - totaly works, its funny.
imocho - over done, but part of the story.
kill la kill - it fits.

its really how its done. then you got shows like highschool DXD were, its well half the plot.
one i really like is 'i couldnt become a hero, so i decided to get a job' the demon princess just nailed it. the rest was kinda ugh.

Fanservice is hot and sexy, so i love it, also lots of it, as long as there is humor (to love ru), decent story (dxd), or badass action (hotd, that anime was EPIC, fits ass AND brutal zombie violence!! :3 )

Or in slice of life shows and such it's fun if their is a beach or hot springs episode (beach better ,:3 ) so you can stare at their sexy striped bikini's for a while... Maybe watch with one hand LOL

So yeah, ecchi for the win, and I love ecchi harems shows! Not only, that would get boring really quickly, I watch everything from sxifi to fantasy a and from ecchi to action , but i am glad they exist. Love the new dxd... Issei's tittie dream at the beginning was awesome :3
