Just curious if straight girls find echii where there are plenty of partially nude anime girl shots / panty shots / scantily clad girl shots etc.. annoying or if they don't really care as long as it is an engaging story line?

I end up watching Echii due to liking the story more than any other reason. I'm a straight guy and even for me the Echii can be a bit much. Thoughts?

I made some assumptions that bi/lesbian/? females would have a higher chance of liking the echii than would straight girls. It was the straight none attracted to female parts ladies I was wondering about.

Why would you want your anime to be interrupted by random shots of cleavage and panties if you don't find it attractive? Of course people find it annoying, as do I for that matter. Lol.

I think it would greatly depend on the individual, more so than either their gender or sexual orientation. For example, I'm a straight male, but even I felt the fanservice in High School DxD was excessive when I first gave it a try, but it wasn't until I heard about the well-written character dynamics that I decided to give it another chance, and found that I did like the show as a whole.

I'm starting to think we'll never get around to hearing from the ladies this thread was meant to ask. Ah well.

To be honest, with me, it all depends on the series.

I really don't mind it at all. But then again, I don't watch Ecchi often enough to be a significant opinion on the matter, for the sole reason that it isn't interesting to me at all. If I want sexually explicit stuff, I watch hentai.

Hehe well said! I don't watch Ecchi with the intent of trying to find Ecchi. I watch it because the story looks interesting and only after to I realize...ohh wait this is Ecchi, oh well.

My favorite anime of all time suffers from this. They have this one upskirt part during one of the most touching moments. I actually yelled saying they ruined it while I had a friend studying in my room.... Sigh...

Just replying to that reply. I'm male, so no opinion on thread as a whole (outside of it annoys me even being a straight male though I don't watch ecchi, I'm replying to the post from a serious show perspective).

When I first said that I was curious about watching some anime, my wife got this funny look on her face. I said "I know, beside Pokemon you probably think it's all giant robots and porn, but it's really not." Her response: "Actually, I forgot that Pokemon was anime, and I didn't know about the giant robots; I just assumed it was all porn."

Since then, I've watched several anime with her, and convinced her that it's not all porn. But she notices every single bit of fan service, and usually points it out to me. ("I could have really done without that upskirt shot right there," "Wow, the camera really likes looking at her butt,", etc.) She'll still watch a good show even if it has fan service, but it clearly bothers her a little bit. And, as a result, there are shows I've been more reluctant to show her, most notably Bakemonogatari (which I otherwise think she would enjoy).
