Does fanservice annoy anybody else? Throwing in pointless panty shots that add nothing to the story or comedy ticks me off. I tolerate it, of course, but I hate it when shows feel the need to throw in an upskirt shot every five minutes under the assumption that we're all a bunch of carnal fools who can't appreciate anything unless it involves sex or masturbation. I'm interested in hearing what you guys think about it.

I would have to say a lot of shows would be lacking without their fan service. There are some (Like Your Lie in April) that would be harmed buy fanservice but in general I like it (Though when I started watching in February I didn't lol).

Fanservice is completely unnecessary, and It's what doujinshi are for.

Studios need to stop the schizophrenic "everything but the kitchen sink" strategy for mass appeal. A specialist will always outperform a jack of all trades in their chosen field. They need to get over the fact that hentai series will always do pornography better.

Give the pin-up artists and pervy cameramen the boot and spend your money on better authors instead.

I dont mind it as long as the story is good but if the story isnt then will stop watching.

Then I'm not a "real man." The standards and expectations of others mean little to me.

In certain anime, the fan service is the point, and I enjoy it in those shows to a certain point. It annoys me when it is excess, inappropriate, or gets in the way of the story.

The Testament of Sister New Devil... I mean, look... I know that anime is pretty much ecchi all over, and complaining about fanservice in that anime is like complaining that there are too many chocolate chips on you cookies, but for some reason the boob bouncing (I think in the OP?) just slightly gets to me, and I don't know why. I'm generally not that bothered about fanservice, so I don't know why it annoys me there.

I believe so as well. There are people who hold such opinions though, so I included it as an option to account for as many possible perspectives as I could.

I think there's alot of truth in what you said here, so many want to appeal to everyone and use every fanservice trick they can think of. I think that's why every anime I watch now has a loli character for no aparent reason. And why so many shows end up being so similar to each other.
