What are your thoughts on fan service (the sexual kind)? Is their such a thing as too much of it? Is their such a thing as bad fanservice and good fanservice? Is it automatically detrimental to a show's quality regardless of context or does is vary from one instance to another?

discuss
>>
As long as it does not conflict with the plot, I barely care. Too much fan service is just annoying and/or pathetic
>>
Depends on how it is delivered.
>>
Fan service of the sexual kind is pretty much never justified and never makes anything better.
>>
There's tasteless generic fanserivce and then there's fan service that has some sort of merit. If its done well, I don't care. Generally, I don't expect to see it in a show that takes itself seriously. But sometimes it happens, I just ignore if it the plot is good.
>>
BACKSTORY is more important than PLOT.
>>
There's fanservice that isn't sexual?

Explain

gratuitous shots of the mecha come to mind as a type of non-sexual fanservice (unless your a robosexual or something)

also giving in to the demands of the fanbase. Also counts as panda ring
>>
I don't really care for seeing unnecessary sexual subtexts in anime, so when pantsu and tit physics fill up the entire screen it gets really annoying.
>>

A character in a anime might considered sexy. But isn't outright exposed at times, purely to pander to fans. So maybe, someone like Motoko from GiTS.
>>
I think it's the difference between fan service that tries to pretend it's tasteful to hide its shame and fan service that uses it to make me enjoy the show more.

Gundam Build Fighters is a show that is all about fan service for fans of the franchise.

Nothing wrong with fanservice.
Especially the loli kind.
>>
if you don't like fan service you're probably some pretentious faggot. fanservice is supposed to be entertainment for fans, so if you aren't entertained you must not be a fan.
>>
>>100801133
fact: fanservice sucks 99.9 percent of the time and ruins the anime
