    How important is fanservice in anime?


    For me, it's very important. Otherwise it would be impossible to tell a lot of characters apart.

    Wait....WHAT!?! You need fan service to tell chars apart? You couldn't say....and humor me for a moment.....go by appearance, personality, gender, etc. to tell characters apart? Nope, to tell anime girls apart apparently you need to look at their boobies. Wonder how people did it before fan service.

    Eh, I could personally do without. I'm a girl (why did I type good??) so boob shots and panty shots make me feel uncomfortable.
    I don't mind boob jokes to an extent but that's a completely different thing

    And I don't understand how you can't tell characters apart other than boobs... they have faces and personalities ya know!

    I'm not a fan of fanservice either. It's what the director resorts to when they got nothing good story-wise. And yeah, constant crotch shots and giant bouncing water balloons just isn't my thing...

    I dont mind it, but it can go over board. Case in point, Rosario+Vampire. First season, had plenty of fan service, but still had a story to tell, which was interesting. 2nd season, was barely a story there and basically was 13 episodes of fan service, which honestly got old quick. I finished it, but every episode I was hoping it would get back on track.

    You got a point there. A little service is good for comedic purposes, or to push a more adult scene (seduction wise)...if it serves to advance the plot of the story. But to put it in...just to cater to boy fantasies. Ugh..

    Most anime would be the same or better without any fan service. However, I don't mind it if it's used very sparingly to add a funny scene or if it's kept to a filler episode (such as beach, hot spring, etc. trips). I feel like Kaze no Stigma did a good job in that regard while Rosario 2 and High School of the Dead went a bit overboard.

    I don't hate it, I feel like anime just wouldn't be anime without it. But it's definitely one of those 'less is more' things.

    First, that image has little to do with fan service, especially with regard to you telling them apart. Character design is what allows you to tell them apart, and I'd hardly consider the fact that women have boobs to be fanservice - though designs (Tsunade, Rangiku) can be fanservice-y. Cropping screencaps to focus on boobs doesn't suddenly change the source of fanservice.

    I'm not a fan of fanservice (hoho!); it's distracting and disruptive to the flow of a scene or an episode. In ero/ecchi shows it's fine because that's the whole point, but otherwise, I'd prefer it wasn't there. Unfortunately it has become more and more prominent in a very large portion of anime through actual ero content, moe, and so on.

    I love fanservice.. just look at my siganture, borderline fanservice right there. That aside, it is not really important. More like along the lines of a luxury instead of a necessity.

    Well... Talking about fanservice I have to say that I don't really mind it as long as it doesn't get too much of it, since sometimes it can be so much that I stop to watch an anime because of it (like I did with Highschool Of The Dead, that one just had over-the-top-waaaaaaay-too-much in it if you ask me). However small amounts of it isn't that bad, especially if it's with a character that you kind of like. When it's with a character that you don't like then it's just bloody annoying and you don't like it, but when it's with one of your favorite characters then I guess you are more towards the "Me Gusta" side of it all, Hahah! One exampel: I am pretty sure that both me and also @RyuTama didn't had so much against it when Mr. Kirkland took his shirt of when getting ready to go the hotspring.

    Riiiiiiiiight RyuTama? ~ <3 *Wild smirking appears*



    So NO it's not important [Not to me anyway]. But small amounts of it is okey.
    Sol, vind och vatten är det bästa som jag vet
    men det är på dig jag tänker i hemlighet
    Sol, vind och vatten, höga berg och djupa hav
    Det, är mina drömmar vävda av

    IT has it's place here and there, but too often it's overused and just undermines the story. sometimes makes me ask what's so wrong with the story they have to use fan service to make up for it.
    I know violence isn't the answer. I got it wrong on purpose.

    @GameGeeks What can I say, they were well drawn panties. But yeh, you're right, I guess I just wasn't bothered by it as much as in other anime since I didn't really notice the fan service.

    Every now and then I suppose it's...refreshing? (as a guy), but it's definitely something I could live without. The story is infinitely more important.

    I get annoyed by too much boob shots and panty shots. Come on, I don't watch anime for the sake of seeing those. I watch because of the storyline and the graphics. A little is fine to me, but not too much. It gets distracting. >.>

    Thanks to Ms Lucy for this awesome, funny gif.

    The person that you are now is not the person that I used to know. You're becoming a stranger that I've never met before. Not liking the change though.

    You would be shocked at how similar two characters from different series can be. Like a certain green haired girl from Codfe Geass and another one from Darker than Black...

    Or Kallen from Code Geass and... damn, what's the plant girl from Yugioh 5Ds called again?

    @Clayton_n Clothing, hair, face, and body type are what differentiate anime characters, for female or male. The size of their breasts has little to do with what distinguishes themselves.

    Fanservice to me is kinda important. It keeps me interested in the story and characters a little. I dont like any slutty fanservice like boobs or panty-shots though. Progressive romance and sweet moments between the characrers are fanservice enough for me. ♥

    Stuffz that makez me squeeee~♥

    Don't forget voice overs. That's also a big factor. I don't see how fan service factors into this whole thing.

    OK, lets go with the girls with the green hair.

    Amber:


    C.C.:


    First, outside their green hair, they look nothing alike. First there's their age. Amber has the appearance of a ten to twelve year old and continues to get younger as the series progresses. C.C. looks like a high school girl. The result of age effects things like the shape of their faces. Amber's is much softer and rounder. Her nose is smaller, even proportionally. Her eyes are also softer and don't stand out in the same way C.C.'s does. That's just face alone. Like others have said, there's also things like body type, clothing, voice, etc. So no, those two characters don't share any similarities other then green hair.
