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. – Trae237 years ago
