Fan Service

Postby saurus » November 26th, 2006, 8:51 pm

Do you guys think there is to much fan service and nudity in anime these days I mean I can sea it in animes like love hina or negima where its almost unavoidable and can actually play key points in the plot but in other animes like blue gender ,evangelion ,tenchi and gatekeepers just to name a few. I mean it doesn’t even do anything for the story in these animes and I’m not saying I hate evangelion or the others by any means in fact evangelion is one of my top 5 animes I just think its pointless. What do you think on this or am I just blowing this way out of proportion :)

Sure it does, Fan-Service in itself is a means of increasing the population that watch it, thus becomes a needed entity in almost every "Mature" themed Title. What most people fail to realize is that, Ecchi is not a sub-genre, and it is infact a Genre in itself. Over half the population that watch anime, prefer "at the very least" some unforseen act of flaunting imagery.
Fan Service, as it is defined, has but only one meaning: Scenes designed to excite or titillate the viewer. This can include scantily-clad outfits, cleavage shots, panty shots, nude scenes (shower scenes especially), etc. If it has little plot-redeaming value, but makes the viewer sit up and take notice, it's probably fan service in one form or another.

Honestly, what exactly is the point of making threads like these? This site has already blantantly edited every possible, and plausible scene of Nudity, how explicit, or mellow that it may have been. Enough, is enough. If you think otherwize, I say this to you, "Urusai, Urusai, Urusai"

Ok I shall enter this topic on a very neutral point of view. I could really care less if there is nudity or not in an anime. But from of what I have read on these topics that argueing about it really gets you nowhere. It is what it is. sometimes you need nudity to help grow relationships in an anime or you can just have non needed nudity in anime like in ninja scroll. Either way there really isn't anything you can do about it. But like I said I'm very neutral about it, so I will stop here.

Its naked animated people so just get over it. Besides, people can easily find pictures of real naked people and more online. If nudity doesn't hurt the fluidity of anime, then it should be just left alone.

anime doesnt need fanservice. it doesnt make an anime better or worse because of it. but its one of those things that people leave in because people like in overall its like popstars the skimpier the clothes the more people like her.

Lol, it was not intended for people 2 not know what it meant. I was simply letting him, and people with the same ideology as him know that threads like these are unwanted, and unneeded.

Hmm I will touch this one, Ok is fanservice needed? No probably not....will AC ever show it? No never....BUT! I have to disagree about the Ninja Scroll comment...for the most part the nudity in some of those eps were actual episode plot points...like the one tree lady getting raped...that explains how she is acting...in the movie the whole sex thing...ok while you CAN show a sex scene without nudity...in the whole it is still a sex scene, a little T&A can't hurt none. And as killiun said before, a lot of things like the Love Hina OVA and stuff is an echi anime...I mean thats like watching a porn and saying "That sex scene wasn't needed" o.0 You should be saying "That plot line wasn't needed"!!!

Oh yea and also, other countries aren't so caught up in the whole nudity thing like america is...Japan is especially not one of those contries that frown on nudity...I mean hell they pioneered the outside coed bath!!! They made it a thing to do to relax and be comfortable instead of to get clean >.<
