Big breasts ruining anime?

Postby johnny46 » Fri Mar 27, 2009 4:54 am

Dragonaut ~the resonance~ - Ok so I've been following this anime for the last five episodes. I'm not a big mech-anime fan but it looked interesting enough, the plot has so far seemingly enough substance to make for a good view; the character variety is interesting and for the most part the animation is good. However, I have an issue with the so-called "fan service". And I just wondered if anyone else shared this opinion.

See my problem is that nearly every chick apart from Toa has massive breasts. I'm not talking massive but realistic, I'm talking so big it's just ridiculous. It's not fanservice, it's not erotic, it's distracting and annoying. Every time one of said female characters appears on the screen I subconciously shake my head. I'm actually considering dropping what is otherwise a good anime just because I can no longer put up with the constant boob shots. Some of you might consider this weird? How can I not like breasts?

The thing is, they're too big to be even close to realistic, they're thrust in your face every 10 seconds (not to mention the women wearing armour that for some reason leaves their chest, the most vunerable location on their body, nearly completely exposed) and nearly every female character has them. If I wanted H I'd watch some damn H. Seriously it's too much. Does anyone else get incredibly frustrated with the several anime that have this particular problem? Or feel free to disagree with me.

I agree. I've never really understood the whole "Bigger is better" in relation to boobs. Size does matter sometimes, but it's not as simple as that.

Flipped through a few episodes of Dragonaut on the ol' tube, though I couldn't find any massive boobs. Mind taking a screen-shot or two?

There's nothing to worry about.

I might get some flak for saying this, but yes, there are way too many big boobs in anime. You used to be able to sit down and watch anime that was fairly normal (normal as in, there weren't boobs flopping all over the place). Nowadays, practically half of the anime out there is completely filled with huge boobs. Big boobs used to be something that were used as PARODY (Jungle de Ikou, Amazing Nurse Nanako), but these days every show uses them as the main attraction.

Yet another reason why people associate anime with nerds.

Yes, but Dragonaut sucked even without the boobs. If you find yourself bothered by the breasts, you have to realize something about the anime. The creators don't have high class and the anime is probably mediocre, even if you haven't realized it yet. The creators think that inserting massive fanservice will attract fans to watch it because they know that without the distraction, the show would suffer for lack of content. When you realize that, its time to drop and find something else to watch.

An example of a good show that was ruined for me due to the big breasts is the first season of Mahoromatic. Though the concept was a bit cliche, I saw potential and GAINAX hadn't let me down yet. I would have enjoyed the show a whole lot more if that damn shotacon teacher didn't pop up every single episode throwing her chest around. I was glad to find she had a more passive role in the second season.

Not that all shows with ridiculous breasts are bad. Kamen no Maid Guy, for example, was all about big breasts and still executed an amazing and genius show.

There's an upcoming show called Queen's Blade that I think you should watch to test this trend. From what I've seen so far, it looks like the whole show is nothing but ridiculously big-breasted women battling in very revealing armor. It could still turn out to be a good show, or it could be just what we've been talking about. I guess we'll find out when it comes out.

If it's H, then it often makes it better.

Otherwise it depends.

Like all things, it depends on the situation. However, if all you've got going for you is physics defying breasts, then you'r3e probably not doing too good (we all see you hiding in the corner, Eiken). While it is funny/enjoyable on occasion, there is such a thing as sensory overload.

H abuses this particular variety of fan service, and it's perfectly fine. If you're watching H expecting a good story then you deserve what you get. That being said, your run of the mill anime would hopefully have more going for it that this, IMHFO (not that it ever is :wink: )

This is why old-school anime is better. While quite busty, even Cutey Honey and Fujiko Mine were never what I considered excessively endowed (although some latter incarnations got mighty close).

Anyways, Dragonaut was produced by Gonzo who have a predilection toward making shows having female characters with either very small breasts or giant ones. Examples: Burst Angel, Gravion (series), Witchblade, and Gantz. OK, I'm exaggerating about the predilection bit.

Well, at least if you want to practically ensure you don't have a bunch of giant boobs in your anime, then watch moe stuff. But that's a whole different can of worms. :|
