    Re: Fanservice in Fairy Tail

    I've have never realize fanservice in Ft. It's always been there and it never bothered me..I just didn't care, its rather fun and entertaining and didn't feel like fanservice.
    Recently, it feels like the author is exploiting this area a little more than usual. I just felt like this last release was a waste of time...It felt wrong, wrong place and time. I didn't expect it to happen, we were in the middle of a big development..

    Re: Fanservice in Fairy Tail

    i dont see the point of this thread

    if mashima puts fanservice in the chapter, what is the sin in talking about it in the chapter discussion if it is in the chapter

    now i dont think we should have in depth analysis of it

    but are we really going to start deleting posts from the chapter discussion if someone says "wow did you see that one panel of lucy"

    this is who mashima is, he loves fanservice, and he has perhaps the best artwork of any mangaka

    so if he emphasises fan service in a particular chapter, we should be able to mention it in the chapter discussoin

    i am not critisizing anyone, this is just my opinion

    This is something that makes me attracted to FT. The plot is not great but good enough to continue reading, its a typical shounen plot

    There is no sin, but this thread provides the opportunity to go in depth about the current, past, and future chapter too, leaving room for more topics to be discussed in the chapter thread that are actually related to the chapter...

    There's always fanservice in FT, or let me say, there's always ecchi in FT, but it's too broad and it appears very frequently, and there's no use for having the same people say the exact same things about the same drawing style of the mangaka every week. You can focus your thoughts about ecchi here from now on.

    However this was explained in the opening post of the thread as well, but I chose to reply to this, to make it clear for everyone, why from sometimes we remove certain topics from the chapter threads. This occasion in not the first, and it won't be the last either.

    So let's stop discussing moderation decisions in threads dedicated to manga discussion. If anyone else has any opinions or complaints, address them directly to the staff, and let others discuss the manga, because that's why they come here.

I'm not trying to incite an argument, I'm just honestly baffled how someone could read 'Mashima's a perv" and get bothered by it. It's not an insult. It's just what he is when it comes to his drawing style.....he likes to draw women naked, most all with big tits and big ass, usually in perverted/erotic positions. How does this not come from a perverted mind?! I mean it's not as ridiculous as getting upset for someone calling the author of say, History's Strongest Disciple, a perv, but still, there's no reason to be bothered by it. I mean seriously, we have people calling other uses retarded for saying that? That's scary man.

    Dude, getting mad at someone for calling Mashima a perv is equally as logical as getting angry at someone for calling FT a shounen.
    I think the problem with this stems from the distortion of the word perverted or perv...like you said it: "perverted/erotic"....perverted is not the same as erotic, let's get that straight, and perverted is a strong word, which in its sexual sense, means that Mashima is a deviant in an abnormal, or repulsive way...

    The word "perv" gets thrown around a lot, whenever there's something even slightly suggestive, which is wrong I think, because perv is a strong and perhaps in many cases an offensive word

    This chapter brought nothing new to the table, except the angles of some of the more suggestive panels...like the one with Natsu and Erza, which btw is a pretty comical situation, considering how Erza got in that pose...

    So for me it didn't feel forced at all, but I was a bit surprised that Natsu actually went to wash Erza's back, which says that the bonds in FT are very strong and the members are close and natural around each other...but I also knew that it won't be interpreted this way, after I saw the last panel, and pretty much expected the uproar in the forums

    I'm sorry but complaining about fanservice in Fairy Tail is pretty retarded. This is the type of thing the term "tard" was invented to describe. "Noobish" would also be a fair description. Fairy Tail has always had fanservice. It's a part of the series, always has been, always will be. Complaining about something that has been a part of the manga for 355 chapters and eight years is just weird. These complaints seem completely disingenuous, complaining for the sake of complaining. If anyone does not like mild fanservice, they should drop Fairy Tail immediately. And the fanservice in Fairy Tail is It's a part of the story. It's mind boggling how anyone could read so many chapters and still complain about something that has been such a constant presence. For lack of a better word,"Tard" or "noob" would be a pretty appropriate descriptor. A little harsh, but still a fair description.

    Perv might be an inappropriately harsh word. A lot of cleavage, and a little ass, is hardly pervy. Tentacle porn is pervy. Fairy Tail is pretty PG-13.

    Re: Fanservice in Fairy Tail

    ^ Fanservice did always exist in Fairy Tail. But not like this chapter...no. Definitely not. Calling other people "retarded" because they didn't like this recent chapter is definitely not appropriate. Especially considering the author himself knew there will be people disliking it, but he didn't call them retarded. Personally, I really don't care much about the Fanservice 'cause I stopped taking this Manga seriously since the end of the GMG. But I can definitely relate to the people who hate this chapter.

    its not even as fanservice-y as kenichi

    the fanservice in fairy tail is harmless, its nice T&A for the teen-young adult demographic that shounen manga is intended for

    hell im 31 and i still like fan service, thats not the reason i read FT, but im not gonna complain about it

    there were a few chapters where it was pretty close to this one

    the chapter with erza and mira jane in the "punishment game" was definitely hot and steamy (i cant remember which chapter it was but it featured mira jane spanking erza in a maid outfit

    That chapter was more or less funny. Not mention it was an Omake. And it wasn't forced like in this chapter.

    As I said before, I don't dislike the fanservice itself but how it's presented.

    This is probably the big misunderstanding here. Personally, I'm used to watching so many anime where the word "pervert" gets thrown around (by one character to another) so often for simple things like accidentally getting a peek under a skirt or something so I've always been under the impression that in the context of manga/anime, the word pervert was used by people to describe stuff that is inappropriate for the eyes of young kids. Maybe people who use the word here means more "inappropriate" than "abnormal" or "repulsive."

    At least in most anime, the reaction of characters on the receiving end of that word have a more embarrassed reaction than an offended one; so as a viewer, I never expected a great stigma attached to it (and here I thought all this time I had a perverted mind when I've been putting myself down for child's play).

    Honestly, the word "fanservice" wasn't even a part of my vocabulary until I noticed people making such a fuss over it recently in Fairy Tail. I only started reading the chapters where the anime stopped and having mostly only seen the anime, I didn't notice much that was inappropriate until I got to the manga. It makes me wonder how much stuff they edited out in every episode.

    Anyways, I don't think there's anything wrong with a manga or anime that has such a style and I don't think there's anything wrong with people who enjoy it. But between the Fairy Tail manga and anime, I probably wouldn't mind so much watching the anime with people near by; but I don't know if I can say the same for reading the manga in public without feeling a bit embarrassed.

    Re: Fanservice in Fairy Tail

    I don't like the fanservice because it feels like Mashima's desperately trying to attempt to attract or keep viewers so he can keep making money. I personally find it annoying, as much as I like fanservices.

    Re: Fanservice in Fairy Tail

    Call me gay or whatever, but I never really notice the fan service. Maybe I watch/read too many anime/manga. It'll have to be something on the level of To Love Ru or Rosario Vampire anime for me to be like, man, this is too distracting (I don't even notice the fan service in those two manga, actually). Fairy Tail is nowhere near that level.
    Most of the thing I post is probably assumption if it's not a fact that I support using some evidence from the manga.

    If you knows you're on my ignore list and you quote my post, there's high chance I would ignore you. Or answer you and not look at your response.
