Isn’t the Fan Service Sometimes the Best Part?

Back when I was a young anime fan and I saw genuine anime fan service for the first time, I was floored. I had no idea that animation from any country could do things like that and get away with it! As I grew older and got more desensitized to it, it became less of an issue but those early days will forever be etched into my memory.

Fan service can come in many different forms. Sometimes it’s just simple innuendo and sometimes it’s full on graphic nudity involving breasts the sizes of healthy watermelons bouncing from one side to another. Whether you love it or hate it, you have to realize that it’s not going anywhere, which is why I’ve decided to create a list of some of the top fan service series we have available on Viewster for you to check out.



Vividred Operation

From the same director who brought us Strike Witches comes this series which takes those boundaries set by his previous work, runs with it all the way to the end zone and spikes it into the ground before doing a victory dance. Vividred Operation is a fan service series from the winter 2013 season that prides itself on showing off its *ahem* assets. If you enjoyed Strike Witches, you should certainly be giving this one a chance as well.

Strike Witches

Strike Witches is not a series that can be called subtle by any stretch of the imagination as one of the key selling points of the series is that none of the girls wear trousers. Like ever. There’s even an entire episode (the ‘Nice ‘n Breezy’ episode if you’re wondering) based around the girls constantly trying to find a pair of underwear to wear so that they aren’t running around commando. Amazingly though, despite all of the fan serivce in this series Strike Witches manages to interject a lot of heart into its story which is a lot more than you can say for other series in the ecchi genre.

Samurai Girls

Want a bit of alternative history with your fan service? Well then this is the series for you! Taking place in an alternate time line, this series has plenty of action to go along with its bouncing breasts. If you’re looking for something different, this is the series you should be looking towards.

Cross Ange

One of more recent additions to the Viewster library, Cross Ange has all sorts of different fan service to please the discerning viewer: yuri bedroom scenes, tender love making, bathing antics… the works! The good thing about Cross Ange is that the fan service can be considered a bonus rather than a key selling point to the series as there is a very complicated plot to go along with everything else happening on the screen.

Girls Bravo

While there isn’t a ton of outright nudity in Girls Bravo there is plenty of innuendo (wait until you see what Miharu Sena Kanaka can do to a banana!) First airing in 2004, this is a series that may even seem tame by the fan service standards of today but if you enjoy harem antics it’s a series that you won’t want to miss out on seeing.
