I get the impression that in some people's minds, a single bath scene (or similar) in a 12 episode anime = ecchi anime.



You exaggerations aside... a 12 episode anime, like why does it need a bath scene. It doesn't need one. It's a most overused method of shoving the fanservice into our faces. You couldn't even tell a 1 cour story without a bath scene? Bath scenes are ecchi. The only reason to have a bath scene is to be ecchi. There is no other reason to have a bath scene, always with a girl who is always a teenager. Making up any excuses for bath scenes to claim they are somehow in service of the plot is just a lame defense of obvious fanservice.

I don't have a problem with fanservice or ecchi by themselves, just like I don't have a problem with pizza.
I like all three of these things in fact. But I don't need pizza to be somehow pushed into every meal I eat. If I go into a very expensive restaurant that promises fine dining I will duly laugh and be angry if every course comes with a slice of pizza. There's such a thing as overdoing it. There's such a thing as too much. There's such a thing as overused cliches... like bath scenes!

Why does it always have to be some teen kid stuck in a fantasy world swinging his sword around? <insert other over used thing here> oh but your okay with that so it is okay. Usually the higher budget shows have less fanservice anyways.

There isn't a need for it, but there are people who want it. People like mechs, so they make mech shows, people like video game anime so they make video game anime, people like fanservice so they have fanservice.
