remember when this was the extent of fan service you'd get in an anime series? hell the only other 'fan service' found in the original macross was the closeup of minmei's ass in the first episode, though that did serve an actual purpose in terms of setting up the characters.

In VOTOMS, I am always drooling over the mecha to notice anything else, like characters, story, or tits.

Fanservice in TV anime didn't really start getting bad until the late 90's, when the harem genre really started picking up steam. But even that's tame compared to where TV anime has gone in the past few years. Most of the series that peddle that sort of thing are terrible to begin with, so it's easy to avoid them, but it's depressing to see how that's basically become the industry's biggest source of money [outside of shounen series and K-On].

I think there's a difference between nudity and fan service.  Fan service is more like having a scene dedicated to showing panties, or it's just unnecessary.  and then there are moeblob characters.

Well, anime back in the 80's and 90's wasn't just for anime fans. You can look at the vids in this thread, on this very page and see that. Today's anime is aimed specifically at a subset of anime fans, a very tiny minority.

I think manga, in its current form, owns. There are plenty of amazing manga titles. Anime, however is a mixed bag, so I tend to stick manga. The only anime I still watch regularly is One Piece unless there's a new Gundam out.

No, I could tell from the start that it wasn't something I cared to watch, but it gets brought up from time to time so I feel like I need to justify my hatred by seeing how low it dips into absolute depravity. Quite low, from what I can tell!

Current guilty-pleasure haremuuuuu animu are Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai and Maken-Ki.  The latter is just absurd and bizarre in its selective-censoring.  Boku would be a lot better if they ditched the annoying loli-nun and had less fan-service. 

Also started watching Ben-To, which is about people fighting over pre-prepared dinners at supermarkets after they are placed on half-price discount every evening.  WEIRDNESS.

I've seen Patlabor. but it's been quite a while since. And I just want some action set piece stuff. explosions and dust clouds. Evangelion I haven't seen but it seems kinda xenogearsy with people all catching feelings about this and that, suffering from various types of mental illnesses, etc.

edit: I'm not opposed to drama. Planetes is prolly my favorite anime and I watched too much Aria to have some sort of high ground over shows featuring teary eyed animu girls. but I was kinda in the mood for some steel on steel bro wrestling.

Ben-To's one of those shows that features a lot of the tropes I rail about, but it somehow manages to be a fun show inspite of that. It does get to be a bit too much at times, but it's an enjoyable show.

Watch the Eva movies. Some absolutely insane things happen in that and there's less focus on feelings than the series.

The Big O looks cool. It's been so long since I saw the Patlabor series (ova?) that I dunno if I should jump into the films or re-watch the series first. Also, grabbing evangelion 1.0 cus maybe that's good i dont know

Gundam AGE - From what I've seen, it's pretty good, but Bebpo and some others say that the past few episodes haven't been too great. I'd wait it out for it to reach at least 25 episodes so we know whether or not i'll be worth suggesting.

Gundam Unicorn - Great animation and fights but LOL story and characters. Gundam is better than this, but if you have a hankerin' for UC-era Gundam it's worth watching.

The art you posted is by the same guy who did Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  That's what caught my eye about Boku, but it turns out that he just did the character designs/promo art and has nothing to do with the story.  I didn't expect much but like the premise, which is about a group of students who have no friends and want to make them...so they start a club for making friends and wackiness ensues.  There really isn't much in the way of stupid fan-service-as-plot going on, but there's more than one episode with the characters in bathing suits and the blonde-haired girl is too damn bouncy.  It's a distraction that I can only think was done to get otaku buying character goods or whatever.

Also started watching Ben-To, which is about people fighting over pre-prepared dinners at supermarkets after they are placed on half-price discount every evening.  WEIRDNESS.

That's the ... entire premise?  :S

Yes!   :lol  So you have all these fighting game-like characters brawling in the supermarket, and then bizarre characters like "The boar," a huge fat lady who pushes her shopping cart into everybody, knocking them out of the way.  Crazy shit.  I've only seen a few episodes and there's been plenty of male support characters, but the intro still makes it look like it could delve into the dreaded HAREMUUUUU.

Sen gets Yō and Hana to join the Half-Priced Food Lovers Club and starts training them in the ways of Bento Brawling. During one of the supermarket visits, they encounter a 'boar', a fat woman who raids all the half-priced bentos before a battle starts. The next day, Yō meets Yū 'Wizard' Kaneshiro, who encourages Yō to stand up to a boar so that the bento battle can properly take place. Yō comes to understand the pride of the 'wolves' and comes out with his first victory, obtaining a bento with an honor seal from the 'God of Discounts'. Yō then returns to the clubroom, where Sen congratulates him on his first victory and shows him a scrapbook showing the victories Yū managed to obtain.

the premise, which is about a group of students who have no friends and want to make them

It's like anime is really trying to tell me "this isn't for you anymore."

Correction. Anime TV SERIES aren't for you anymore. Thankfully, ova's and films are still great!

"Anymore?"
   :lol

In other words, it's about social rejects/outcasts.  The main dude looks like a delinquent (he is HAFFU with an English mother), one girl is rich and shunned by the other girls because of her attitude, another is a genius who can't fit in with other kids, his sister is an otaku who cosplay as some magical girl-vampire 24 hours a day, etc.

One huge problem with the character design is that, this being TEH ANIMU, you have all these characters with multi-colored hair and eyes.  The main character is specifically pointed out as "scary-looking" because of his blonde hair and such, even though the rich girl also has blonde hair and blue eyes and is supposed to be 100% Japanese.   :spin
