I would be unhappy about it. Not as much as i once would have. But anime wouldn't be anime if it were completely gone.
I agree in some anime it is over done.

I think i would be just as, or probably more unhappy about the factor of censorship, political correctness, the do gooder whingers and whiners who complained and ruin it it for everyone else side of it than the factor of having no fan service itself.

Fun police, do gooders and feminists ruin everything and if this were to happen it would be just another example.
Dont like fan service? dont watch the animes that are loaded with it.

I don't complain about fan service unless it totally gets in the way of the story, or if it's loli fan service. Otherwise, if it was completely gone, I wouldn't notice until someone else mentioned it.

Anime should go completely without fanservice when it can imo

The thing is you got series that shouldn't even have fan service and they feel the need to add an underwear shot in there somewhere...i mean it bothers me but not enough to not watch it but the anime would have been better off WITHOUT that unneeded fanservice.

Sometimes fan service just has no reason to be there and i would love to be able to watch some pg-ma rated Anime without fan service but thats nearly impossible

Of course not all fan service is boobs & butts etc., but also close ups of guns and tanks and the like. I would like less sexualised fan service but the rest really doesn't bother me much.

nah, the fan service adds an extra appeal, if a good plot can be achieved as well, it makes for a dank anime.

That's an unfair statement, because most of the time, you never know what anime has fan service in it until it airs.

This is not always the case. It's rare for fan service to be "needed as part of the plot device." Most shows don't need fan service, but it's thrown in anyway. That's when it feels "forced, out of place, and distracting."

what she said. i mean, gate is one big JSDF fanservice.
tho the sexual kind is nice if its done right. things like to love ru or kiss x sis are great, but i think its not so much as gotten out of hand today, but there is just too much of it.
freezeing springs to mind. would have been so much better without it.
too many show rely on fan service to sell.

Well no shit it's obvious, that was my point.

It would be interesting to see if there were more anime fans for or against fan service. My guess is that for would win by a land slide. But i guess now a days anime is more widely know and there are more female viewers and i guess parents might not like the fan service if their kids are watching it and etc
Plus people are becoming more and more offended by everything and everything is becoming considered sexist and objectification.

Ok well yeah, you're right but you can stop watching it. No one is forcing you.

EDIT: Again, whilst i am all for fan service, i do agree it can be over done. It can be eye rolling and cringe worthy at times.
But in all honesty, i would be less likely to like an anime if it had none at all.

That still isn't fair. Let's say you really the like story of GATE. Let's say it was chock full of fan service, but you don't like fan service. Do you stop watching GATE, whose story you really like, just because it's full of fan service? No, you don't. You watch the good GATE story, and "put up with the crappy fan service." That's the real-life answer for most anime fans.

Depends on how much it bothers you i guess. if the answer is that it really bothers you then yes, you stop watching.
Its a bit like if i listen to a hip hop track and its dope but then it has a really crappy whack Rnb chorus that i really dont like. I stop, i skip the track.
I dunno. Most anime has a rating and should tell you that it may have adult themes or nudity or mature conent but i guess there is no fan service warning lol.
Maybe they need a "contains fan service" warning?
But lets be honest, MOST anime has at least some fan service. Even girly and kiddie ones often do.

I dunno. I have not seen GATE but if you really like it then the fan service must not bother you THAT much. if i did then i would say tough shit stop watching.
Iam pretty sure there are video games that have a great story but if someone found it too violent they could stop playing it. Sort of the same thing.

I'd feel pretty good. Fanservice doesn't really add much to a series in my opinion.

Odd thing for a young male to say?
Unless you get plenty of action with real girls i guess? lol
or you're too ashamed and proud to admit to liking fan service.

I dunno, me personally often find fan service funny. Like it's meant to be funny more so than to get off or to be perverted.

Eh..... I used to be more pervy but I've definitely mellowed out. I'm actually a bit of a prude now.
