Here and there is great but there are some that over do it. Example Sora no otomoshi was perfect and it made the echii funny. How ever High school DxD Born went overboard and it was pretty much like watching hentai. And Not to many people watch hentai for the story.

If you don't like something just watch something else

You don't live in earlier times where Western publishers of anime mostly brought in hentai titles and the only place you can get anime are in video stores where you buy or rent video tapes. Think of the time when there's all this stuff like Ninja Scroll and La Blue Girl. In those times anime was labelled "those pornographic cartoons"

Nowadays you have plenty of alternatives. There is no cause for complaint

I don't get your sarcasm.
To me, ecchi and fanservice are great things.

I think the usual complaint is more about intrusive fan-service in places it doesn't belong.

If people don't like shows in the ecchi genre, you're right -- they just don't have to watch those. But when excessive fan-service is in action, and romance, and comedy, and horror, and drama, and most popular anime and new titles, then there are very few alternatives.

It's like...if someone doesn't like gore, they won't watch Saw, Hostel, or whatever. But it's basically confined to that specific horror genre. Imagine then if gore was shoved into almost every show, even when the story didn't call for it. Wouldn't it be justified for someone to find that irritating and unnecessary? I think that's sort of how some feel about fan-service -- that it's gratuitous and almost unavoidable.

I'm mostly fine with it, but I can see how some people would be annoyed with it already.

I grew up reading the Love Hina manga series in middle school, so needless to say I don't mind fanservice that much. However, there was a lot of character development to make up for it, so it's not like I liked it because of the all the panty flashes (erm, well, actually.....); I enjoyed the overall soap opera/romance/slice-of-life plot. Still, some shows push it a bit far, where that's all it has going for it, basically. No bueno.

I don't see that DxD could go that far but I agree it has atleast got worse through the series.


And Not to many people watch hentai for the story.

Well I have found some with a rather good story and when they are good/decent they could have becomed better then many "normal" animes from recent history (very intressting and some character but mostly sexual)

I personally love fan service and don't mind when it's a bit overdone as long as the show has something else going for it, though I have been known to watch shows just to check out the glorious fan service.

It can be pretty annoying if you're watching anime in front of other people.

Like yesterday was watching Fairy Tail in the lounge room... and the ending had pics of girls in very suggestive poses... and I was just like, "OMG... everyone will think I'm watching porn".

And I couldn't skip it because I was playing a game while watching it, so was too lazy to walk back and forth lol.

Similar to my "romance" thread, I was wondering if I'm the only person that gets kind of turned off with all the sexual based fanservice.

I'm talking about jiggling/big boobs that are clothed and the little lolicons and stuff like that.

I mean, I don't go around nitpicking a series just to look for it but considering most writers now, this seems to be a big thing, now'days.

My gripe is simply that depending on the timing, it can be a bit of a distraction and let's face it, you're not gonna ever see them naked so what's the point of teasing, y'know?

But yeah, what are your thoughts about the whole fanservice thing? (I personally call it "pg sexy" because once again, clothes).


Yes I find it irritating; if I wanted a masturbatory aid there is plenty of pornography/hentai available so I don't need it added to everything else.

Just like some people are rather attached to their fanservice, some of us really need to avoid it. If a series lacks fanservice but has anything else worth watching, someone that enjoys fanservice can still enjoy that series, but it doesn't work so well the other way around. Especially with subtitles, when you're trying to ignore the fanservice but also read the dialog and not miss any of the plot relevant action.

Obviously if it is a series where such content is openly the focus from the beginning, then it is what it is.

Ecchi is not bad but there is WAY too much focus on it. I'd much prefer a female fighter with normal sized boobs that happens to have a bad angle occasionally to a character who's boobs are larger than their head and every shot is focused on their boobs.

Don't forget my favorite harem of all time, To Love Ru!

But yeah, the only problem fan service poses for me is the fact that I have to be careful of my surroundings when watching.

I think it's alright in the odd episode but I kinda get bored of it or find it tedious if it's every 2 minutes in every episode of a 3 season long anime xD Sometimes I'd like it if they focused on story and character development rather than all on fan service in certain anime.
