Anime Beginners: Diving Into a Sea of Service

We are at that point and time where you start to venture into… questionable seas. Sure we all will eventually answer the maiden song, the call to fan-service. It depends on the person when it boils down to actually watching and enjoying the issues of fan-service. I frankly have no real opinion, but I defiantly don’t care too much for fan-service; especially ludicrous amounts of it.


First off what is Fan-Service? Fan-Service is when a series we all love and adore gives us… suggestible shots of our favorite characters; the female ones make up the larger spectrum. It’s an acquired taste and is an unfortunate addition to just about every anime one watches today. Sure not many of the anime that debut feature it, but it is growing. So what makes a person run out and start watching more blatant culprits of fan-service over a normal anime? Well it has a lot to do with the person’s current interest and prospective, viewing outlook.

There is an undeniable, almost primal urge to just watch something that is purposely smutty. It is just what it is. Kill la Kill is a prime example of a show that I absolutely adore and yet it has a boat load of fan-service. Sure I do not subconsciously think about it, but maybe some one else is. Case in point, Monster Musume. This is just one of the few obvious titles out there in the wild and they can get pretty… questionable. Essentially what this all boils down to is pure enjoyment for a character or series you may enjoy.


When deciding on taking the dive into the sea of service, you need to understand that it will not be something that everyone enjoys. It is a genre that has some stigma within the community and with good reason. Most of these anime lack story and are often seen as a shameless, company plug for profit. Sure I don’t mind, but that doesn’t mean my roommates or workmates would enjoy. The only person who can answer if you would like fan-service is honestly you.

So when you are wondering to yourself, “Should I got watch Monster Musume?” Just remember that you may invoke some… odd looks.

  1. This is a great post looking into the world of fan service within Anime! Im one of those people who genuinely likes it, though i completely that ludicrous amounts of it can put me off sometimes. If the scene in question makes me go “why!?” then it probably wasn’t at all necessary fan service haha!

    Monster Musume…. most awkward “feelings” I’ve ever had lol

    1. Haha, thank you! I like tackling unique posts and topics. Fan-Service is one of those, “We hate to talk about it, but have to talk about it.” Sort of posts. : )
