I feel like a lot of characters are drawn out of proportion and there are a lot of scenes in anime that are just unnecessary... I'm 25 and I will watch it and be like yeah those are nice boobs and then have to think about it like wait these characters are in high school like really lol... Is it just me?

Those body pillows and half naked character models aren't going to sell themselves buddy

At the end of the day, it comes down to sales, plain and simple.

Also you need to keep in mind how anime sells in Japan. In Japan, companies sell super overpriced box sets, I'm talking like $60-80 for 2-3 episodes. Basically a show can be considered a success if a few thousands otaku dump $500 or more, so getting closer to that target is much easier pandering to this part of the market. It's also, part of the reason why you often see a lot of generic ecchi (essentially copied characters and reused plot points) anime, it's takes less effort to make a profit off of it.

Primarily, it's just a lazy way to try and rope in viewers. Goes to show how much they respect their audiences. Sometimes, however, it's satirical (ex; Kill la Kill), or is meant for legitimate characterization (ex; Occult Academy features an evil female character who uses seduction to manipulate men, and a sadistic assassin in Re:Zero sometimes disguises her evil with her looks).

can't exactly blame anime companies from putting fan service in hopes that the stereotypical otaku will buy enough BDs for the company to even break-even.


Goes to show how much they respect their audiences most of whom don't pay for the series anyway, and those who do tend to like fan service

fixed.

there are some shows that don't rely on fan service, but they're usually aimed at children (example: aikatsu)
edit: on another hand, they instead push toy sales, so there's that.

Yeah. Some people like it.

Not every piece of media has to be for everyone. Nothing's bad, some things are just not for you.

I just wish there were more shows with guy fanservice and plot. Like, let's hope Suzaku gets naked a lot in the new Code Geass.

Unless it serves to legitimately advance the plot then I hope this is not the case as it's just unnecessary.

Sometimes they do it because it establishes something about the character, sometimes they do it because short skirts and wind so it's likely to happen, sometimes they do it just because. Overall I'd say it's because it sells. Maybe I'm just getting old but it does nothing for me. It's usually unnecessary and does nothing to improve the show. Shows that are built around it such as Heaven's Lost Property or Highschool DxD aren't my thing. Maybe when I was a teenager but not now. Having teenage children tends to change one's perspective on things like this.

When a majority of the females around you are "small" it can be easy to generalize that they're normal sized and "comparing" is much more noticable. I think it's not exactly an exaggeration, but how they actually view their women. I bet the Brazilians feel the same way (in reverse) about other people claming their women have enormous posteriors. They probably see it as an exaggeration on our part.
