Ok I heres a sore subject for me. I started watching anime about 2 years ago. When i first saw shows like Highschool DxD, Kanokon, or other Harem shows not to call out any in particular you know the ones that feature loli's and just about every show is about teens in highschool that get their clothing ripped off. When i first saw these kind of shows I was like is this ok to watch?. Now a days i don't even notice it. Maybe I'm too old for this or something. Does anyone else feel bothered by it? Ohh and I am totally ok with adults sexaulized in anime.
your thoughts?
I think something got lost in translation I was more around the thinking does this bother anyone else. is what i was trying to get at sorry my writing skills aint all that.

examples

This is so wrong
familiar of zero F on crunchyroll ep 5

eh.. I'm not really a fan of sexualization of young girls in anime, so I tend to avoid most fan service heavy animes.

I think alot of anime companies now days are pandering to 40 year old men with a fetish for under-aged school girls.

Also, on the Revy photo, can that really be considered sexualization? I mean.. almost everyone I know sleeps in underwear lol.

I don't feel guilty. It's just artwork. One could say porn dehumanizes women (Which I admit it probably does, open to interpretation) but who cares, it's porn. No different than how 50 Shades of Gray is a bdsm fantasy and how most yaoi novels push the stereotype of a man/wife submissive dominance relationship. Just let people enjoy their fantasies. I like how my sister put it.

"Let people enjoy what they want to enjoy. There are some people out there that would find it funny to kill or harm because of stuff like this. In my opinion, people like that are worst."

Is it creepy? Perhaps in your opinion. But problems only arise if someone attempts to reenact this fantasy in real life.

There's also a controversy or whatnot in the mental health community on whether or not being attracted to teenagers is even a filia (sexual disorder).

Disclaimer: This is pretty much my opinion.

Ya the revy photo probably not but you get the point. I had a hard time finding pics of adults in anime kinda nude staying pg 13. Ya i get what your saying. Not to say I didn't like the familiar of zero i really did. I even liked the characters but I didn't think it need the fan service. I also think its probably normal in Japan for them when they see this their probably ah.

I get what your saying 100%. This is all just fantasy and is an art form. I do agree with that but come on it is so wrong. I guess we agree to disagree. Im fine with that. With that being said Im still going to watch Highschool DxD season 3 cause of the art (wink wink).

Fan service = lazy writer. I'm looking for good story, and won't watch a series that has it.

that is so true but what bout Ghost in the shell and Ryn Daughters of the Metronome. Both I am totally ok with the fan service. But now that i think of it I thing Ryn has some shady stuff going on. But I guess the girls were a hundred years old so it doesnt count? I don't really know any more I haven't seen it in years.I just wanted to hear the thoughts of the Anime pros .

I guess I what i would like to see in Anime is the writers change the high school settings to college so that its 18+ girls getting clothes ripped off. just my 2 cents...... Wait a min.... I wonder if writers have the high school setting because of the mini skirts? Also don't want to just judge other peoples cultures (japan) maybe I don't understand their thinking. I would like to get their point of view.

I don´t really like it with loli´s (I don't mind if others like it, it makes me a bit uncomfortable is all), but I absolutely love funny ecchi harem comedies XD I prefer big tits XD My fav anime ever are to love ru (momo best grill!!) , fullmetal alchemist, and lucky star, so I love all genres :D

I love ecchi harem comedies and fanservice tough! Always have, always will, and go to any convention and you´ll notice most otaku do~ In addition to harem shows I also absolutely love shows like highschool dxd, highschool of the dead, etc - badass action and fights and fanservice! and because they´re popular, crunchyroll is full of them and will keep that way because they usually get the highest ratings www JAY! I love Rias Gremory... her titties are fabolous, and she is badass... *drool*

EDIT: I am a super otaku LOL I have completed over 220 anime tv shows, about 70 movies (of all genres!) and gone to over 30 anime conventions and more than 10 cosplay meets in my 6 years of otakudom, and I still love funny silly ecchi harems www I even have an ecchi huge wallscroll of highschool of the dead in my room, and I love it~ :D

I definitely don´t feel wrong about watching the awesome harem series that teh vast majority of my fellow fans love LOL , and I certainly don´t care what others think. If they don´t want to watch it, fine, just as long as they remember they don´t have any right to tell me what I can or can not watch. If I want to watch to love ru, highschool DXD, and the like, then that´s my right, and it´s awesome that moret han half of convention goers agrees with me, gives me lotsa people to be friends with and chat with and lots of merchandise to buy in the dealer room~ :3 :3 :3

Also: this is the only post I am gonna make in this thread, I don´t want to help turn it into a huge annoying thread if they´re other more silly, fun threads to go and play in~ Bye-bye!

I think Familiar of Zero is boring... I couldn't watch far enough to get to the fanservice.

Kickass shows like Love Live don't need service.
