30 Days Of Anime Challenge Day 17: Fanservice

There’s a lot to cover in the world of anime and as it becomes more popular there are more and more people watching and engaged in it at different levels. And part of the fun of these topics is that you can end up talking about something you love and introduce someone else to something that they may not have known, thought about, or understood in that way.

Today, we’re talking about the realm of fanservice. This is something that can be blatant, it can be subtle, and in the realm of anime and manga, it’s usually leaning into sexuality rather than in Hollywood projects where it’s appearances and namedrops. What kind of fanservice level can you handle, are there types that just disturb you, and what kind works the best?

Bonus question: What’s the most awkward piece of fanservice in the place where it shouldn’t be?
