A Discussion about Ecchi, Lolicon and Politics with the Owner of Fapservice.com

f6mxRvrFapservice.com is an NSFW website that highlights the ecchi fanservice scenes in anime and manga. If you’re an ecchi lover, you probably know about the site already! It’s a great resource if you want to get your ecchi fix without having to watch an entire series.

I recently sat down with wizardofecchi, the owner of the website, to discuss his philosophy about ecchi and otaku sexuality. We also talk about the stigma that lovers of 2D characters face, as well as what is probably the most controversial issue in the fandom today: lolicon.

A Study of Japanese Anibloggers: #1 Uozanankyoku [NSFW]

tumblr_m4rewbcYWi1qf186f

One of the things that’s always escaped me is what Japanese people think of Japanese anime. Looking at the sales figures provides you with some measure of an average Japanese anime fan’s taste, but what about their first-hand reactions? People generally know about 2ch, but what about the Japanese aniblogsphere? Do they have a comparable blogging culture to ours, with there being a general (though somewhat skewed) perception of “blogger = elitist/critic/hipster/etc.”?

As of now, I’ve only just skimmed the surface of the Japanese aniblogsphere, but the early returns suggest to me that their blogsphere has evolved in an entirely different way from ours. English aniblogging is a niche over here, with a small number of bloggers holding a large amount of sway over a relatively closed community. The Japanese blogsphere, meanwhile, is huge. Compare the scale of their aniblog directory to Anime Nano and you’ll see that blogging for them is a rather established thing. The blogs are even being ranked in terms of some kind of arbitrary scale that I have not quite worked out yet.

Naturally, this suggests that the Japanese blogsphere is more likely to represent the mainstream Japanese fan’s opinion than that of a “snob”.

In this sporadic series of posts, I’ll introduce you to a Japanese aniblogger’s website, tell you about their tastes from what they’ve written about themselves and then translate one post which I feel is representative of their writing style.

First up: Uozanankyoku from To Love Ru Love. As you might be able to guess, he likes To Love-Ru.

Whatever else you might say about High School DxD, at least let this be known: You’ll probably never see nipple lasers, giant robots, horny nuns and fallen angels with cyborg arms all in one anime – hell, any other form of entertainment, full stop.

Note: This post is Safe For Work and contains no ecchi images.

How To Watch Anime Correctly: The Sacred Blacksmith

wrong9

A couple of weeks ago, I watched this super cool show called The Sacred Blacksmith. Then I looked at its MAL score and at the critic reviews and it appears that the general consensus is that it’s a sack of shit.

In my humble opinion, you’re all doing it wrong. So this post is going to teach you how to watch anime correctly for 45.683934% more effectiveness (numbers are exact, by the way). While my example for this post is The Sacred Blacksmith, you won’t need to have actually watched the anime to understand this. Just mentally swap it out for that show you really like, I dunno, Boku no Pico or something.

Anyway, onto my demonstrative example:

Fanservice Does Not Always Suck: An Analysis of Ecchi as an Art Form

likeyouveneverseen

It’s pretty hard to justify the existence of ecchi with one’s brain rather than with one’s groin, but I’m going to do my damned hardest here.

(Note: All images in this post are perfectly clean, so feel free to keep on reading.)
