Fanservice or service cut is a material in the work of fiction, like anime, which is added intentionally to stimulate the fans, often including nudity, sexual content or remarks, etc. Fan Service is included in the anime to entertain the fans, who like such content. Sometimes, the creators take it to the next level, including excess and unnecessary fan service which could scare off some new watchers. If you do not like fanservice, here are 17 anime/manga you should be miles away from, and if you like, then here are some recommendations for you.
Bakemonogatari is a romantic mystery anime with vampires. Bakemonogatari could be one of the, if not the anime with the least amount of fanservice on this list. Sure, it has some beautiful vampires, the genre is romance, everything is set in the direction of having the best fanservice.
But, Bakemonogatari makes sure not to make fanservice excessive, it has managed to keep it within the limits. There are only some mild nudity and panty scenes in Bakemonogatari, nothing else. So, for those who like fanservice, don’t worry, there are 16 more options.
16. Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon is another romantic fantasy anime with monsters and demi-humans. Danmachi follows the story of a brave but flustered boy who tries to bring glory to his goddess and protect whom he cares about. Danmachi does not contain nudity, but the scenes with jumping breasts and some other sexual acts would surely make you look over your shoulder frequently. There are sexual comments and abuses in this anime, but they do not take it to another level by showing nudity, just some hot girls with luscious costumes.
15. Grand Blue
If you are looking for some slice of life fanservice, which you too could relate to, Grand Blue could be your ideal choice. Grand Blue follows the story of Iori Kitahara who moves to a coastal town for his college for his “ideal college experience”, but is struck with the reality when he comes across the members of Diving Club, who frequently come to his uncle’s shop. He now tries to achieve his ideal college experience while learning to scuba dive. Grand Blue contains very little nudity, with only guy buttocks and some closeup on girls’ breasts. BDSM and some pornography are referred to, but that too is for very less screen time.
In short, this anime will not quench your thirst for some juicy fanservice you had expected.
14. Classroom of the Elite
If you ever had the fantasy of coming to a new school, and becoming the center of attraction for the girls there, then Classroom of the Elite would be the perfect way to visualize your imagination. Classroom of the Elite is a school anime where the protagonist, Ayanokoji Kiyotaka is not what he seems on the surface. Deep down, he is a genius, who came to this school to live his life as a normal high-schooler. But, his normal high school gets turned into a sort of harem, with many girls crushing on him.
There are several cleavage shots throughout the series. The girls are sexualized heavily since the artwork is done by a hentai artist. Although no nudity is shown, the sexual scenes are enough to question your school life. A massive bummer – There’s no second season, and the ending of season 1 makes you want it even more. You can read the light novel for the further story, and trust me, it is *chef kiss*.
13. Kill la Kill
If you wanted Akame Ga Kill to have more fanservice, Kill la Kill would be the name for it. Kill la kill is an action-comedy anime where the protagonist, Ryuuko Matoi’s father gets murdered, and she swans into the prestigious Honnouji Academy in search of her father’s killer.

Kill la Kill contains massive fanservice, with moderate animated nudity to female buttocks and breasts. Fanservice fans, this is something you should definitely try.
12. Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls
If monster girls are your weakness, and the harem is your fantasy, then Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls is the perfect anime to fulfill your imagination. Monster Musume is full of erotic and lustrous monster girls, seeking the protagonist’s love and affection in order to marry him. The cherry on top is that the protagonist attracts monster girls, hence the possibilities increase frequently. The fanservice amount is massive here, with girls getting an orgasm from grabbing their tail. This series is strictly fanservice-based, so do not expect a good plot and relatable characters. Make sure to watch it alone, with the door closed.
11. No Game No Life

They are transferred to another world, by Teto, God of Games, to challenge him. Now, the siblings work together, to become the Gods of this world where gaming is everything.
Though the storyline is good, the amount of fanservice is great. If you dislike small girls being sexualized, then clear off from this anime. You will see many times, the little sister Shiro in sexual scenes. The anime contains a lot of ecchi elements, like oiled breasts, panty scenes, and some other things too. There is no second season, so that’s a shame, but you could read the light novel for further story.

When Basara Toujou finds out that his new step-sisters are demons, he is forced to reveal his identity as a former member of a former clan of “Heroes”, a sworn enemy of demons.

If you liked Attack on Titan, but at the same time want something ecchi, try out Freezing. Both are some serious anime with no comedy and humanity fighting against giant creatures. Freezing is about a guy, named Kazuya Aoi, who mistakes Satellizer el Bridget as his deceased sister and embraces her. Whilst his touch did not drive her away, she recruits him as her partner, as she faces a race called Novas who wreak havoc as they pass through Earth.
Although, it is uncertain whether their partnership would survive against their upperclassmen and Novas. Fanservice is huge in this anime. Nudity is habitual, with almost every female been shown as topless at least once. This would probably appease your thirst for some juicy stuff.

Fanservice is clearly something that must be included with extreme caution. While it is not compulsory, if it is included, it must be within the limits. Excess fanservice tends to scare away some viewers, making the anime less enjoyable. Though, beach and summer episodes are exceptions, since fanservice could be cleverly filled in in such episodes. Then, why do the directors take it to next level? It is mainly due to them having fewer ideas, as fillers, or due to copying others. I wonder what you think about fanservice being excessive?
