Fanservice: RAGED


What is fanservice? That’s a good question, a question I wondered when I first watched Evangelion. At the end of each episode they kept having Misato say, “And be sure to watch the next episode there’s fanservice.” I never felt serviced at all, even though the episode would be pretty good I wanted the fanservice. After watching anime for about a year or so I finally figured out what fanservice was.

Anime + Definition of Fanservice:

Fahn – sehur – vycess (breasts, panties, shower scene)
The showing of animated characters’, usually female, sexually provocative regions. This subliminal message is intended to be addicting and usually has no purpose otherwise. Fun rating: 0

Shower Scenes Make a Good Anime

When a character steps into a shower you know it’s going to be good. Once that steaming water hits that naked body with carefully picked camera angles you will be forced into submission.


Anime + Definition of BeingWhipped:

Bee-ying Whihihi-pp-eeeed
You grab your ankles and happily take whiplashes to the back. You do not think. You do not have free will. You were with the animals that did not eat from the Tree of Knowledge. You love being told to buy merchandise. You always watch commercials, especially commercials. i.e. Shinji Ikari

Anime Whips You and You Like It

An anime is saying to you that you are perverted and all you think about all day is sex. You will try to get a peek at any part of the female anatomy anywhere. That means even if it isn’t real. Examples of this would be:

  • Two oranges placed closely together.
  • Two balloons placed closely together.
  • Two watermelons placed closely together.
  • Panties.
  • Bra.
  • Spandex.
  • Colored Pictures of Characters.



I don’t know if it’s Japanese culture or the target audience of certain anime, but it seems to be a prevalent thing. If someone is watching an anime and says, “Whoa her tits are huge!”I would most likely reply, “I can draw bigger ones. I mean, my intention of watching an anime is to see something fun and exciting not to see a gargantuan amount of circles. If I wanted to see that I’d go to the Olympics, just the Olympics aren’t fun and exciting.


I have learned from fanservice, therefore right now I will be providing YOU with REAL fanservice. Please enjoy and be forever engrained with the thought of ANIME +

    I agree, If you get your jollies from a flash of animated panties there is something wrong with you. But to tell you the truth there is so much of it in most main stream anime, that I hardly notice it any more. Although I would like to think that animators would view me as more then a hentai addicted otaku. Great raged arttical, Best podcast on the web, Hope to see you at Shiokazecon.

    Heh, for the most part, I could agree with you. Most people whom I know, all are the type of people who obsess over overrated harem anime like Love Hina, DearS, etc. etc. It really does get sort of pointless after a while, always seeing a guy get beaten up because he trips and falls and grabs a girl’s breasts. It just becomes idiotic after watching this happen EVERY SINGLE EPISODE of a twenty six episode series.
    But of course, don’t get me wrong. There’s nothing wrong with some Harem anime. There just needs to be a good balance between fanservice and plot progression(Something that most Harem anime…never has.). SHUFFLE!, would be a good example. That’s a good harem anime.
    Great second raged article, keep it up.

    THANK YOU! Finally people who arn’t so obsessed with boobs and underwear that they can actually think! I do like some anime shows with fan servious, but i do think that they would be a lot better without them. Sometimes though tripping and landing in a girls breast and other things can be funny but true only once otherwise it gets annoying and i do think it should be done in the beginning to attract people then they should drop it. liked the raged article keep up the good work guys!

    We all like boobs Jake, from the guys that want them to the girls that have them. I like fanservice animes, but they tend to be shallow. The great animes (like Gundam Wing and Akira) don’t have fanservice, or much of it, so they’re more respected. Oh, and before I go, I wanna introduce you to AnimeSynergy. A great place for anime fans, complete with an arcade, forums, wallpapers, anime spoliers etc. Check it out!

    I have never fallen and grabbed, then squeezed, then looked then squezed again. The only time that has been funny is full metal alchemist episode 10: the phantom thief.

    hey.. right. well, i’v been listening to the podcast for a few weeks now and reeding bits of the posts here etc and i dunno. on the topic of fanservice i do mostly agree- watching full metal panic i realy enjoy a lot of the well polished, high production value mech fights, and SOME of the fanservice- related comedy actualy relates to how young men think and makes me laugh (agreeing with what coral said sort of) but i’m also so sick and tired of breast being thrown in for the hell of it. or if you’ve seen it, you’ll know what i mean about the last 2/3 episodes. wtf????
    ….. but at the same time, i realy feel like this whole site is run by people i’m still placing and i like a lot of stuff that they say but some stuff which seems to be bassed purely upon whipping up oppinion in order to be contraversial and get in the public debates and eye, e.g the full metal lampasting ( this bit is out of forum but ill link it in). i realy like full metal but putting that to one side, i can see what is meant about some of the comedy cutting up the action, and the fights being too spread out, but they spread them out so they can tell the story. but most importantly, admitting that it has its down points i do not think its possible to justify such a lampasting of it. why would you go so out of your way to insult it knowing that it would upset a lot of people who enjoyed the anime. insulting the anime they enjoy is insulting them! and you wonder why you get hate mail. sigh.
    …. and i said i’d link it in so here it is… i feel like fanservice is kinda overdone and its much more justafiable to lampoon it all the time. like you do. but you could still be taking it too far… at least here you do have a point though.

    Personally, I like fanservice. It’s harmless fun and much more healthy for society than its cinematic equivalent (i.e. female butt shots on NYPD Blue).

    Look, heterosexual guys like looking at women – even drawings of women. There’s nothing wrong with that and in my opinion, looking at cartoon women in compromising positions (i.e. in the shower or showing me parts of her body that a woman wouldn’t show me outside of a relationship), then I’d much rather have that given me via a drawing than through soft porn magazines like GQ or Maxim, where REAL women are PAID to become sex objects.

    Hooray Ian Cooper. Real-girl sex-object marketing is the same as pimping. Girls you don’t know are paid money (indirectly BY YOU) to fulfill your sexual fantasies – completely without relationship or emotional intimacy. It’s prostitution, pure and simple!

    However, constantly obsessing or sexually gratifying oneself over images is unhealthy, even if they are drawings. If your mom would be shocked to find out, if your wife or girlfriend would be pissed, or if you feel nervous, anxious, ashamed or guilty (even a little bit) then it’s not doing your psyche any good. Spend that time earning money, gaining a skill, volunteering, or getting to know a real girl.

    Incidentally, if your girl knows that you need sex a lot more than she does, why would she object? It’s not like it is painful (in most cases). Real girls should put out for their men, anytime. Real men should do likewise for their women, but that’s not as much of a problem, usually (though there are sexually-frustrated wives too!)

    Yeah i’m a female (straight) so I’m not into fanservice.
    But I will admit that I will go all fangirly over my favorite male characters when I see them do something cool.

    I do think it’s kind of wrong that the makers of anime think that everyone just watches their anime for the fanservice. It’s so bad that I rarely even notice it anymore.

    And hasn’t anyone noticed that the most(emphasis) epic anime usually are really serious and have very little or no fanservice.

    Ya thats right ya gotta admit that its a bit annoying when you want to watch something awsome and then find out that there is heaps of ecchi( soft porn) in it. But we got to face reality, in japan anime is made for EVERYONE!!! That includes 7yrs up to like, theres so many age groups that i cant rember. Manga is a bit more orgnised because it has different kinds of manga theres Manga for boys, girls, childern and adults.
