Animecast: Fanservice


We’ve dabbled in it here and there, but it’s finally time to sit down and have “that talk.” The aspect of anime that you either love, hate, or just deal with. The peaks and jiggles that makes you wonder just what is the point. Join us as we dive into fanservice and many of its traits.

fanserviceWarning: While we won’t be vulgar about these elements, we will be discussing fanservice in general. So this episode may be something you’ll want to not listen to at ear catch of younger individuals or co-workers.

The opening for this episode is the OP for Punch Line called “PUNCH LINE!” by Shokotan ♥ Denpagumi. The outro is the ED for Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid called “Ultra Super Hyper Miracle Romantic” by Mikako Izawa & Yuka Iguchi.

We hope you all enjoy!
