I don't know if I'd dislike it because it seems to have nearly every anime cliche in the opening or if I'd love it because it reminds me of a fighting game cinema :P

I might try out a few eps and see if it makes my brain bleed or not.

So much Japanese erotica. For all the scantily clad women in that intro, I'd probably read the manga/watch the pilot.
Read this comic. It is the greatest journal comic ever written and drawn. Trust me.

Yeah it's getting a bit annoying. It's okay every once in a while. Or in beach specials/fanservice episodes. But these shows that go straight to the over sexualization (
It wouldn't be as big of a deal if it didn't seem like almost all anime is doing this. The japanese really need a bigger market than lonely japanese males XD

On the subject, I don't care how lonely the males are do they never want to watch ANY THING ELSE there at all? =p

My first thoughts from the opening where Hokuto no gurren may cry, lucky k-on.

Definitely not for everyone. They get pretty heavy on the lolicon bait as the series progresses.

More proof of the bad trend =(

Does it have good fight scenes? Probably my deciding factor and may be the only thing that could save it.

The Sexy babes at the start look great, but the art style of all the characters reminds me of that Yugioh CRAP. I can't imagine it being any good because of that.

Eww, really? Eww.

Why is pedophilia so appeasing to the Japanese anime/manga audience?

Look past it though the fight scenes are epic. Only started watching though.

I didn't find most of the fighting all that epic. It seems like a pretty typical fight of the week series.

Eww, really? Eww.

The muscular looking guy (Adam Blade) has a fetish for little girls. There is a team of three little girl characters who work for the villains (Mio, Kuchinashi, and Setsuna, 1:03 in the intro) who once introduced, provide the bulk of the fan service in the series, including an ED that heavily sexualizes the characters. You also get some from Disk, Seto, and Solva (1:10). I'm not going to post that ending here, the curious can look it up on youtube on their own.

Sounds like it would make my brain bleed and falls into the realm of anime I can't stand. There is a LOT of that too =(

I remember back when the fetish/etchi/over sexualized stuff was just used as a minor hook on occasions back in the 80s most of the time. New anime tends to tick me off and has for quite a number of years. It's like they forgot how to balance it anymore. Ah well.

There has been a recent influx of series which are really, REALLY bad with the fan service, but there are still series which seem more innocent or take the high road, as well. So far this season seems to be lighter on the fan service than last season. At least I'm not seeing anything nearly as bad as Ladies X Butler or Seikon no Qwaser (so bad it is censored to the point of incomprehensibility on TV, why did they even bother?). If you want current stuff that's lighter on the fan service, Katanagatari isn't bad. K-On! is in its second season, although that may not appeal to the action crowd. Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan (based on a PS2 game with a female audience) and Angel Beats (high school kids fight to avoid ressurrection in the after life) seem pretty tame, too. Arakawa Under the Bridge is kind of an oddball comedy. I haven't seen a lot of fan service and what's there isn't really the draw of the show.

You can pretty much expect any shows targeting girls to be pretty light on fan service, too. For instance, Kaichou wa Maid-sama sounds like it would have more fan service than it does. Most of your shoujo series are going to be like that, though. Kobato (Clamp's latest series) and Kimi ni Todoke fall into the same category.

You do still get a lot of harem series, although those based on Key properties (Air, Kanon, and Clannad) tend to be pretty tame. The latest Tenchi spinoff, Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari, does have some fan service, but is generally tamer than I would expect considering the source material. Gainax's latest series, Hanamaru Youchien seems to focus more on the cuteness aspect and less on the blatant fan service. Sora no Woto is pretty tame, too. Working!! has a character that the others make fun of for his odd interests, but doesn't really have much fan service.

A few were also recently picked up for license, like Eden of the East and Kuro Shitsuji.

Yugioh with 70's collars!.



If all it took was a flashy intro to get me to watch an anime, I'd be watching nearly every anime that ever existed.

But so many of them lately are so sexualized that it's purely insulting. They think I can't keep my attention on something that doesn't have a nearly-naked girl every four minutes. It's just a small part of why I don't watch anime much anymore. I just wait for that rare good one to come by with enough recommendations from people I trust.

Sorry, but from the opening it looks like every other lame, generic Animu series out there right now, but the guy with the 80's glasses reminds me of Kamina from Gurren Lagann.

Wait! Do you mean “Otaku” epic or actual epic? Because there is a huge difference.
