Is modern anime too saturated with needless fanservice?
>>
No, modern anime is too saturated by unoriginal plots and interesting ideas being ignored.

The image you posted is a major example. Regardless of which girl you thought was best, many anons here agreed when Denpa Onna aired that the show would have been better if it was never a harem, and the other girls never introduced. The story starts out with an interesting premise but quickly devolves into just another generic waifu wars.

Waifus sell, original plots and interesting ideas do not.

Fanservice can get obnoxious. It doesn't make sense for a lot of shows to have fanservice when porn exists. Unless you're the kind of person who likes to stay in a constant state of arousal maybe.

I think in general there is nothing wrong with anime titties

Just accept that Anime has been slowly dying...

You'll never see quality anime the likes of gits, cowboy bebop, vampire hunter D etc... No hand-drawn cells only stock moe girls that we've seen a dozen times already. If you're anything like me, you've already gave up on anime and got back to only reading manga.

What happened was this, Moe shows with lots of fanservice get a vocal minority of fat ass neets which makes the industry push for more moe shows with lots of fanservice and cute little girls, so people that wanted quality anime stopped watching and thus no more quality is being made. Add the SJW's, the current political correct bullshit we're living in and the inordinate amounts of censorship and we get where we are today.

and modern western pirates complain too much about it. Fucking shit heads probably watch showa era anime and feel good about themselves
>>
>>133999330
I don't consider gits a quality anime anymore since it's always the same shit. It always replaced memories and/or changed perception of the enviroment.
>>
>>133999330
>You'll never see quality anime the likes of <insert old story driven shit here> that wasnt actually that great anyway and i only use these as an example as im incapable of treating anime what it is fucking entertainment
>>
>>133998703
>fanservice in anime
>needless
Its contradiction here. Fanservice is in Anime, since its expected from Anime and one of thins that constitues to it being Anime.

Similarly as some retarded japs on yaraon now complain "anime is culture of CUTE girls, no one draws ugly/realistic characters!" - thats the point of anime. Other media is saturated with ugly 3DPD, thus anime exists to provide beutiful perfect 2d waifus.

But anime IS porn. You want something else than anime. Try cartoons.

No such thing.

Quite the opposite. DxD style fanservice needs to become the meta for all anime
>>
>>133999096
Unfortunately the necessity to sell because of lack of investors in the industry is a real shame, whereas you have stuff coming out of Hollywood all the time with a focus on content rather than the ability to sell.

>>133998786
There are not even that many traditional harem elements in Denpa.

The whole anime/manga/gaming industry has way too much focus on waifus. It's hardly better than fanfiction nowadays. Most of the girls have sex doll proportions and there's been a ridiculous rise in ludicrous breast sizes as of late too.

I mean honestly, if you were trying to look for 'depth' and 'sophistication' in this particular sub-culture, you're basically looking for the needle in the haystack. There is a dearth of decent writing in this field and it shows.

The main problem is really the economy as some other anons have stated. At this point it's a literal circlejerk of otaku pandering because otakus are the ones forking out the cash in Japan which keeps the industry alive. No one really dares to innovate because the waifu formula continues to sell for now.
>>
>>134002711
Anime has always been like this though.
>>
>>133998703

In my opinion in no more than 10 years the 90% of the anime studios will die thanks to >>133999096 this.


As far as i can tell, they will not make nothing interesting to watch from western peoples, meaning they will not increase their public, ending in this cycle to create more waifus to sell merchandise to survive, simply stalling.
>>

Otaku did nothing wrong

Fanservice is a symptom of shitty anime, not a cause. Plenty of a great series have had T&A shots, it's just that more studios now rely on sex to sell shows that have nothing else going for them. And even that isn't a new trend in the industry by any means, it's just somewhat more prevalent now than in years past.
>>
>>133998703
yes, but that's what sells now
>>
>>133998703

This. The first 3 episodes of Denpa Onna are my favorite first 3 of any anime, but it got so boring afterward and I only got interested again after the focus went to Erio and astronaut girl
>>
>>133998703
Even a show like Monogatari, known for it's well written story arcs and focus on character development is still a harem anime with a lot of fan service. though I will admit the fan-service involving hachikuji is just an under-handed jab at people with a loli complex and araragi almost snaps personas when the subject comes about.
>>
>>134000093
go look back at around the start of ep.4. I thought the this the first time I watched it. i found the show innocent enough to finish it, but thinking back, the overriding theme is that of a harem.

If you don't like fan service the anime is not for you.
>>
>>133998703
Anime has ALWAYS been fan-service heavy, there are just so many more anime beong produced now that you notice it more.

Go back and watch any 70s or 80s anime and find a series not full of panty shots or boob jiggles, its impossible.
>>
There isn't enough fan service desu. Japan needs to get rid of those dumb ass light beams and also start drawing dicks. Free the nipples, free the dicks. TV anime is too censored.
>>
No, fuck off to whatever board you came from.
>>
>>134005377
That's a pretty closed minded thing to say.
>>
>>133998703
Yes, but fan service in unavoidable. Whether its dudes with big shoulders punching buildings and them blowing up, or women that are half naked.
>>
>>133998786
I agree. I was surprised at how boring and derivative it became after the first few episodes.
>>
>>134005045
Agreed. It established a complete air of wonder and mystery in a small sleepy town and you're excited for what's going to happen.

Then it devolves into harem shit and the Erio/cousin relationship takes a backseat for the majority of the show.

Damn disappointment.
>>
>>134002711
gaming industry is being hit hard with the SJW bat, so less sex doll useless women in games and that's about it (still unoriginal ideas, just now with no fanservice)

cept for japanese games. (on the fanservice part)

Indeed, had a cousin who quit anime because of "too much" fanservice (like 6 years ago) and now he watches more mature stuff like TWD, it was the best for both.

fanservice and quality and not mutually exclusive.

the only gripe about fanservice is among underaged because it makes them feel uncool, unsmart and embarrased and sends them running scared back to OPM or other entry level series where they can continue their delusion that anime is for cool and unique people and not fat weaboos. anyone who complains about fanservice is underaged /v/ermin.

The cousin was fine as a protagonist, it just needed less of the other girls and more of cousin trying to bring his cousin into the real world, with supernatural stuff subtly building up in the meantime.
