Anime fans often deride ecchi anime shows for compensating a poor story and bland characters with copious amounts of fanservice.

We’re not here to argue against those claims, but while fans love to talk about “thought-provoking” ecchi anime and “well-rounded” characters, the truth is that ecchi anime has a lot of fans.
