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..
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
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.

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 definitely wasnt complaining only voicing my opinion, i didnt know that was taboo, ill just PM someone next time
im sorry bene but i cant help but laugh at your custom tag of "master pussy stroker"
back on topic since this is the fanservice thread
i literally went back and read the chapter just to get more erza
and of course the greatest panel
that look on erzas face is hilarious
It's not taboo, it's off topic

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.Quote:
^ 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.
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

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
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).
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.
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.
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.
