a lot of fanservice, I’d even say the majority of it, is really unnecessary and can be off-putting, especially in a serious show, and when it’s used as a crutch is when it’s the most annoying. Normally I can ignore it if there’s a jiggling boob here or there, or if it’s done for comedic effect, but there are so many shows that rely on having sexy scenes or weird panty shots thrown in everywhere because the creators know that’s what sells the most copies
I just don’t agree with the whole “u are the fan and are being serviced : ) just turn off your brain and enjoy the boobies!” mentality that so many anime nerds seem to have
it’s just unneeded. you can enjoy a show without it having to arouse you, if you want to jack off to something go look at porn, there’s tons of that and you don’t have to worry about the plot or anything!
but yeah sexuality is a big part of human life, and there are a lot of animes that deal with this subject gracefully and tastefully, without seeming like fap fodder. Sexual humor can even be done well, if you’ve ever seen Hen Zemi, it has a lot of gross-out humor and sex scenes but the way it’s presented is unique and refreshing instead of the same old HURRRR HE FELL ON HER AND GRABBED HER BOOB! type of schtick. I’ve mentioned Golden Boy before, which also has a lot of sexual references and scenes, but is hilarious and doesn’t seem like a soulless pandering mess like most “ecchi” shows. Some people really lower their standards when it comes to anime and I don’t know why, they’re just so unquestionably loyal to this specific medium that they can’t criticize anything or come to terms with the fact that it has a lot of problems sometimes, they just say “if you dislike _____ then i guess you hate fun!!!” or think that anyone who doesn’t enjoy Moe Moe HArem Boob Piss Fest #232348234 must be a grump who is dead inside or something. No, it’s just that seeing the same old stuff all the time gets tiring, and when you’re dealing with something like animation, where the possibilities are pretty much endless, like seriously, there’s so many cool things you can do with it, so many stories you can bring to life, and yet people settle on the easy stuff to make the most profit, since the anime industry is saturated with otaku and people who don’t give a fuck as long as they have kawaii waifus, and ecchi titty shows every season, it’s just frustrating.
