It's service. For fans.

What is there to think?
>>
>>137470742
About fans? Whatever, bring me Dyson, or I don't care.
About girls? I like it when small girls like Rurumo get some nice erotic shots, too bad it's rare as a white raven to see any these days. Big girls are boring as all kind of media pushes them everywhere.

If all a show has going for it is fanservice, then the show is trash. If the story constantly grinds to a halt in order to shove ass and titties in my face, then it's annoying. Other than that, it's fine and some series are made significantly better with well-done fanservice.

I thought this was a Rurumo thread and I got momentarily excited.

I don't mind it.

I don't see a reason why it can't be done.
HOWEVER and this is a pretty big thing, at least for me, if an anime or manga only really has Fan Service, or the story in general is constantly put on hold to shove fanservice down my throat -- I will stay away from that anime or manga.
The only anime I have ever watched with excessive fan service and almost nothing else is Monster Musume. But that's mostly due to me finding the whole thing humorous enough to watch it based on that alone.

Think of it this way -- before /b/, the degenerate containment board had massive moderation that deleted any thread that was even a little on the immoral side, most people stayed away from 4chan. Pedo threads, while despicable, were somewhat of a necessary evil.
Now that we have that extreme moderation, 4chan as a whole has suffered greatly. And even worse, now we have several reddit boards completely dedicated to "4chan memes" so much so that's it's attracting normal fags.

Same thing with Anime.
You might not like Harem anime, or Loli's. But they're literally keeping away the filth.

A lot of them are very similar. And they have a lot of problems, but they're "fun" to watch. I usually watch at least one a season, and I generally enjoy them as a whole.

The fact that they're keeping these types of people away only makes me appreciate them more.

I don't get the point of fanservice. Does anyone actually buy BDs because the show had some pantyshots in it? When a show has lots of fanservice, it just makes me want to stop watching the show and go to pixiv or sadpanda and look at shit there.

Fanservice is okay as long as is not the sole focus of the show, because at that point you may as well be watching hentai.

Also, both kinds of fanservice are okay. Fujos also need to flick their beans to cute anime boys

Then that's the focus, and it's a good thing. Stop ignoring your dangling little member and go fap, if your concern is with censored released they're shit indeed but BDs often fix that problem.
>wasted potential
Entirely subjective. What if a show has a girl you personally find 10/10, but she never gets a single slightly lewd scene and nobody cares enough about her to draw art? Wouldn't you consider that wasted potential as well?
A good series can be good regardless of the amount of time "wasted" on tits and ass, this kind of fanservice will never hurt the quality of anything.

I never watched too many harems but I think I will now after seeing that
>>
I think if its used for humor it really adds to the show and if its just put in there randomly it is anywhere from harmless fun to annoying. That said I understand why they do it. One beach episode and you can make a bikini figurine for everyone (except the one girl that wears the school swimsuit)+daki pillowcase
>>
I dunno. After twenty years of watching anime, panty shots just sort of blur together.

Although, we've kind of lost the alternate broader meaning of fanservice, too. It used to be a slow pan of a detailed drawing of a mecha would also be considered "fanservice".

save yourself the hassle. Ive watched a few because of their popularity and it is just really boring. The last one I watched was infinite stratos. First of all the MC is completely clueless. The only way you can pretend it is okay by thinking he is just pretending to be retarded so he can fuck them all. The girls, instead of being understanding since he basically is dropped into a hostile environment he doesnt know shit about, are all a bitch to him. When he tries to do something that is misunderstood instead of trying to figure it out they are just violent. Meanwhile 5 minutes later they lament about how understanding and caring and pure he is. The MC doesnt call them out on their bullshit either. The time when someone crashes on top of him and he ends up being on top with his hands groping her tits is the moment I needed to pause for 5 minutes. It was so hamfisted you can feel the author's imcompetence.

The plot is flimsy and the only decent part is when it doesnt play a role. You can at least laugh about what ridiculous situation the MC gets into.

Holy fucking fuck. LN battle harems are stupidly irredeemable but these social justice "I have higher morals than you" type are worse.

If all it takes to get rid of these people is to buy IS bd, I would more than love to do it.

Some shows are great because of it, some shows are ruined by it. It's all down to the tone and consistency and whether it goes against what the show is trying to do.

If it's a silly show, silly softcore fanservice is fine. If it's a serious show, a more casual but adult approach is fine. Mixing either tends to fuck the whole thing up.

If it's aimed at male viewers, male-targeted fanservice should be expected. If its aimed at female viewers, female targeted fanservice should be expected.

Like, fuck. It's not a hard conversation or that hard a topic to get right.

~Can I just point out that all of you who justify the existence of fanservice-heavy and/or harem/loli/whateverthefuck shows with the idea it wards off normies are full of shit?

Normies, white knights, cucks, feminazis, tumblrinos and Redditors will be here and watch anime regardless of wether or not those shows are made. The only change is that their existence will only make them more vocal. Remeber, these people like to be assholes and complain about anything even if they don't have to deal with it at all. This isn't news.


I really like how /a/ has this bullshit schizophrenic ideology that "fanservice is great" and that everyone who is against it is a normie and should fuck off to protect the "purity" of the meduim all the while you consistently post about how everything is shit and that no one tries anything new because "we can't make what we want, we have to make what sells.webm".

The people using the normie excuse even in this very thread openly admit that those shows are shit and that fanservice a lot of timjes can ruin or at least make a good show worse, but it's OK because it "wards off normies". So more of this please.

Do you really want to make those types of decisions based on what affects normies? Do you actually like anime or just the culture?

And the worst people are the ones using the "normie excuse" but really they just like to watch gratuitous fanservice and wish fullfillment wankery. That's OK. If you like it you don't need to justify it. I get it. T&A is awesome. Have at it. Just don't rationalize it as something more than it is.

I dunno. Where is /a/ standing?
>>
>>137485264
The way you type make is painfully obvious that you're new as fuck.

Fuck off. There's literally nothing wrong with fanservice, shitty shows are shitty with or without fanservice and those that have a ton of fanservice wouldn't have been good without. They aren't using it as a crutch because they're actually amazing writers.

>creepy school-girl obsessed pedophilia
when will these idiots realize legal age in japan most of the modern world is 13-15 years old. I like how people just through the term pedophilia around even though its specific to children who havent reached puberty yet. Which for girls is age 12. Americans are the worst thing.

>>
>>137485479
It's fascinating how a law dictates how people truly feel about ages and sex, in most europe
an adult in a relationship with a 15-16 year old highschool girl is not unheard of or that weird,
he will probably be teased by his friends and such but not really a big deal, yet in america he is pedophile filth.

People develop morals they feel they have to adapt to feel safe in the society that they are currently in and not because they think about it,
that's why overly puritan laws are extremely dangerous, one generation and people will think them natural and fair.

That's just how I type, I don't get what's weird about it.

I understand your point but can't you see that if every single by the numbers shitty harem makes OK money there'll just be more of them, by studios that could spend those resources on something that might actually be good. Now if you like dumb harems then that's your taste and that's fair enough. But don't excuse it as "Oh, it wouldn't be good without it anyway!". Do you like it or not, or just not care?

Also I don't understand what you mean with that last part of your post. Is that supposed to imply good shows will be good wether or not there's fanservice?

Most anime is shit. Even if we removed shitty battle harems and replaced them with an average mix of other types of anime we'd be barely or no better off as the average anime is still shit. And i don't mind them anyway, why would i? Battle harems can be fun to watch if the girls are good.
>But don't excuse it as "Oh, it wouldn't be good without it anyway!". Do you like it or not, or just not care?
But it's the truth. Go take a random sample of 200 anime and then remove the shows with fanservice and substitute them with another random set of anime
The list of 200 anime would rarely if ever be any better than the alternative, you'd just have shit in different flavors than what you're used to you fucking moron.

>Also I don't understand what you mean with that last part of your post. Is that supposed to imply good shows will be good wether or not there's fanservice?
Yes, a good writer is a good writer. The writers that use fanservice as a crutch to get more viewers/readers/whatever aren't authors who are good enough to make the rest stand on its own. Often people will say "Oh but the setting is good and some of the side characters are interesting, if they focused on that it'd be great!"
But that is simply not true, the only reason those look like the have potential is because the shitty writer hasn't managed to focus on them enough to ruin them.

Shitty anime is shitty with or without fanservice, just look at GitS, it has fanservice and manages to be good because it is a good anime with or without the fanservice.

Please fuck off.

That's so fucking true, if you ever try to write a story yourself you will understand, coming up with promising sounding settings is not all that hard, expanding on them and actually delivering is what's hard.

I don't necessarily disagree with the sentiment. Sturgeon's law and whatnot. But there is such a thing as a vicious cycle, and to be honest every season that passes I start seeing less and less shows that I'll remember 5 years from now. Just look at the film industry, fuck it, look at the anime industry. Look at that mid-late 90's period and how many shows that are now considered masterpieces and have become pillars of the medium there were in such a short period, Like NGE GiTS and Beebop, just to name a few. Give me two shows from the last 5 years that will be remembered like those are now within the next 10 years.

In short , I don't likethe overuse of Sturgeons law as an argumentbecause it only works on a macro scale, and it is necessarily relativistic, rendering it useless for the purpose you are arguing.

>Shitty anime is shitty with or without fanservice, just look at GitS, it has fanservice and manages to be good because it is a good anime with or without the fanservice.

Are you refering to the movie or SAC? Because the movie doesn't have any fanservice in my opinion.

Forgot to adress this.

Totally agree. But that's the point. If people stop taking that bullshit and don't let them get away with fanservice in place of quality content the studios will have to start investing in writting which in turn will give highly sought after writers more leverage and they'll be able to make what they want and have more control over what they make. Which I think is the biggest problem with anime today. I was now going to make a joke about writing seemingly taking less priority in production than X, but honestly I can't think of anything that doesn't take priority over writing right now, and that's depressing.
>>
>>137486783
You really want to misinterpret that, don't you?

I'm just saying that the argument of it's not harming anyone and it's not getting in the way of better shows being made is not necessarily true, whatever what you may consider a better show to be. It's not about my tastes.

>>137473240
>Ironically, fan service, lolis, and battle harem shows are the saviour of anime that keep cancer at bay
I'm actually glad that nips have the most influence since animu is dedicated towards them, rather than filthy gaijins who try to voice an opinion with their feminist and white knight values
