I was looking for something and found this cute pic from Strawberry Panic of a teddy bear in a hat holding a little flag.

I’m ambivalent to fan service. I don’t particularly care for it, since if I want to see big anime titties I’ll look at hentai, and if I want to see real titties I’ll go get laid. But, I won’t hate a show that has a bit of it here and there.
 
If it gets overwhelming, then I’ll get turned off of the show.
 
Granted, I only watch anime every now and then, and mostly older animes. The most “recent” anime things I’ve watched in terms of when they were made was Brand New Animal and Promare. Otherwise, mostly mid 90s to mid 2000s stuff.

I don’t mind fanservice.
 
I don’t get any gratification from it (I think you know why), but it also never bothered me as well.
 
I draw the line when it involves minors though, especially if it’s an ecchi. F### that s##t.

I’ve watched a lot of old ecchi OVAs (direct to VHS releases in the context of this era) from the ’80s and ‘90s and so on. Outlanders, Dream Hunter Rem, et cetera. If you’re dead set against fanservice, that’s the era to look towards because stuff that had to be OVA exclusive because of sexual content back then is tamer than something like Fire Force today. Almost every ecchi OVA I’ve seen from those decades - ‘cept some exceptions like Golden Boy, Jungle de Ikou and Buttobi-CPU!!! - probably would not be called ecchi through a modern lens. It’s just not erotic enough. Sex appeal isn’t highlighted and put into focus enough to warrant the label outside of historical context.
 
Graaaaaanted, this isn’t as much of an era thing or industry change (every newblood loves to act like this is a result of otaku pandering cuz $$$, which if any of you want to argue that to me I’m way more than happy to go toe-to-toe, no shitposting with you) as much as it is because of Japanese broadcast stations becoming progressively more and more lenient with allowing sexual content to be broadcast. With manga, you can go look at some shit Go Nagai made in the ‘60s and it would hold up today. TV broadcast stations have always been more reserved with what they’re willing to air and this is something you can find globally, not just a Japan thing.
 
But yeah. On one hand, fanservice in a modern sense is way less prominent than people act like. If it was that prominent I’d be ecstatic, but alas. On the other, even the actual ecchi stuff of the ’80s and ‘90s rarely gets on the same level as modern battle shounen anime, let alone true blue ecchi.
 
If some non-ecchi Isekai shit from this year is too lewd for you yet you want to try to get into anime still, going backwards and looking at older shit is always an option and probably your best one at that. I can help people get on private trackers if you want really obscure old shit you won’t find on 9anime or wherever, too, so long as you’re willing to pull your weight seeding. Old shit is dope.
 
Also, pet peeve, but hentai is porn. Ecchi is standard anime that heavily incorporates sexualization. Most people masturbate to hentai, and most don’t to ecchi. It’s not an equivalent replacement. Hate it when people say shit like “I’ll just go watch hentai” or much much worse, “Why do you watch ecchi when you could watch hentai instead?” Not the same thing and you don’t interact with them in the same way. Reducing things down to this porn/not porn dichotomy is just myopic. What if someone wants that crossbreed between Isekai and erotic content, or comedy and erotic content, not to masturbate to but because tits and swords or romcom bullshit or whatever else are just a dope ass combo?

Define “minors”. Yeah, shit like Boku no Pico is fucked up, because they’re literal children, but what about teenagers? And then there’s the whole other can of worms of how utterly impossible it is to determine a character’s age through appearance alone.

Say what you will about Trigger, but damn do they hire good composers and bands.
 
I’ve never seen a Trigger anime that didn’t have an absolutely jumping soundtrack.

Yoko at least never gets nude onscreen, and she basically looks like an adult.
 
I’m talking s##t like when a character is OBVIOUSLY underage, and is forced into being nude and/or having sex.
 
So basically, anything like Cuties.

Well, being forced into sex is very clearly hentai territory, which is its own beast, but I can’t think of any series that strip child characters naked.
 
I know they exist, because Japan doesn’t have quite the same nudity taboo the Western world does, but I just can’t think of any.

The supposedly 13-14 year old girl in Stardust Crusaders gets briefly naked and then is almost sexually assaulted by a giant, sentient monkey named after the WuTang Clan.
 
So, that’s a thing. And it was exceptionally uncomfortable to watch.
