    The Audience's Role in Fan Service

    Many times, fanservice is a prominent part of anime solely for entertainment purposes (High School of the Dead, Kill la Kill, and practically all of anime). Some audiences are turned off by the notion of sexualized characters, while others pay it no attention. But is fanservice actually for the fans more than it is for the creators? How does the audience perceive fanservice in anime in comparison to its creators? Does fan service actually attract more audiences?

    • I have seen the animes mentioned above and I can say that it's ok for anime of be just entertainment for the fans because at the end of the day we are nothing without our fans enjoying a good anime or two that we have worked on which is for them to engage in and share their views on the style that we want to show to our viewer. – Trae23 9 years ago

    I’ve only watched the first two episodes. the fictional world is brilliant and well-developed. The themes are relevant and concise. Though I’m not the most ardent lover of some of the characters, I love the theme song too much to care. Hopefully the characters develop a bit more and this’ll soon be one of my favorite animes.

    Psycho-Pass: The Ethics of an "Ideal" Society

    His films are brilliant, and they righteously frustrate me in the sense that I can’t analyze them as much as I’d like to. He’s even said himself that his use of violence is purely an aesthetic thing, nothing political. I think he’s one of the only directors that I can name (at this very moment) that I appreciate solely for entertainment and aesthetic purposes. Films by David Fincher, Scorsese, Miyazaki, and others let me look deeper into what the film provides. With Tarantino I can just sit back and, dare I say it, enjoy myself without thinking too deeply.

    Anime for Dummies: What Starters Should Watch

    FMA: Brotherhood is the one that everyone should watch, anime fan or not. It’s intelligent, doesn’t spoon-feed anything to its viewers, doesn’t randomly drop characters into the netherworld, and isn’t ridiculously long (I believe it’s less than 60-70 episodes in total).

    If you’ve watched maybe some anime, I also suggest: Baccano, Samurai Champloo, and Anohana.

    If you’re interested in anime movies, look at names like Miyazaki, Makoto Shinkai, and Mamoru Hosoda.
