I know this is talked about too much but can someone explain this to me?
The outfits and overall ridiculousness are supposed to be ironic, mocking fanservice and other things in anime that are clearly designed to attract attention through sex appeal.
But then everyone obsess over it and draw more exposed fan art and hentai and put on these outfits in cons.
So how is that fine? Why is it fine to do the same crap if everyone pretends it's ironic and winks each other while masturbating and dressing up just the same as the non ironic coutnerparts?
It's not ironic, it's for real and everyone just like it
Are you a catholic?
I don't get what your problem is. Do you live in an oppressive society where different things are exiled?
No, it's just crappy and the only redeeming feature is this aspect
>Tits and ass
it's the future of animu
For the same reason there's a lot of merchandise of Evangelion. Fans suck.
muh sexual oppression
Notice how everyone stopped giving a crap about the skimpy outfits as soon as Ryuuko stopped getting flustered about it?
It's very self aware fanservice, but it's by no means the main feature of the show.
What is then?
It's like ironic shitposting
Good characters and entertaining fights.
Because it's not mocking fanservice, it just is fanservice. Saying that it's mocking fanservice is like people who call every anime full of cliches a "deconstruction". It's an excuse.
I personally love it though.
I think it may be playing into a theme, if I had to guess I'd say that the writers were trying to make a general point about dignity.
It's not ironic, just self-aware.
People like the show more than most straight-up fanservice shows because it's actually got great animation and a solid story underneath, and because the fanservice also reflects one of the show's main themes (not being ashamed of your body).
They weren't trying to make a point about anything, they were, and still are, just doing stuff for shits and giggles
No, they just come from ANN.
Well, that's what I like about it.
No doubt you're going to say that it's shit/my taste is shit and I should be watching masterpieces like Milky Holmes
It is kinda like ironic shit posting ended with straight forward shit posting. How? Probably magic.
The fact that it's equall opportunity fan service helps.
WHO CARES WHEN YOU'VE GOT LOADS A ZENI
get the fuck out /pol/ nobody cares about degenerates. only old people and chunni know it all faggots do.
I thought it was ironic too at the beginning, but it wasn't. The characters (and not only the girls) here show they are proud of being nearly naked because it proves how serious they are about their motivations. If you like the way they think, why not dress like them when you know there are other people (who don't cosplay) who like those characters for the way they think too?
Kill la kill is the only series I hate to find degradating fanart of. Those outfits are much more that mere fap material like you can find in a lot of others. At least there is an ideology behind them. The scenarists made that effort. If you're not convinced, it's your problem.
It's just an excuse to show boobies
It's a show about clothing and the absence of it. It's entertainment so characters are made to be attractive, boobies are a part of that. No irony at all.
>supposed to be ironic, mocking fanservice and other things in anime that are clearly designed to attract attention through sex appeal
That's wrong. They did it because they like it.
>I should be watching masterpieces like Milky Holmes
Not that anon but you should anyway
But they're fucking retarded
So what? There are more naked dudes in this show anyway if you're more into that.
Sounds to me like you need to loosen up and let people have fun. Stop trying to control the world.
It's not mocking fanservice. Not in a critical or polemic way, however.
It's just taking fanservice to the extreme for the sake of exaggerating.
It is, indeed, an idea that references the world of anime. But parody is not the only way you can reference something.
Cody Baier pls go.
These guys get it.
The rest of you can go to bed.
>supposed to be ironic
Why the fuck you imbeciles think it supposed to be ironic?
How fanservice supposed mock fanservice, how the fuck is that even work? how the fuck this shit at any second is mocking anything? are you fucking retarded that you literally need to come up with something so stupid in order to justify it existence? or you going to tell me that the guy who is a big fan of Go Nagai, and probably did a lot of fanservice stuff before, do you reallu going to tell me that he doing some sort of mocking and parody of fanservice?
Are you fucking stupid? it's not used for a comedy or anything, it's simply tits and asses shown for the sake of it, it's the fucking Imaishi, the fun of the goddamn Go Nagai, why everyone these days are so fucking stupid? why can't you lurk more before posting bullshit you pull ot your ass?
Why can't people just watch hentai to get off?
I agree with the points you make, but you really need to calm down, anon.
