Re: Fanservice, Opinions?
Melodramatic sexual tension, rather than romance, seems to be the key to fanservice directed towards women. Romance typically has an established plot, with a progression leading to a climax and formal resolution, and can be beautiful. Melodramatic sexual tension is played around with ad nausea just to get a rise out of the reader/viewer, and is always left open-ended for as long as humanly possible... if it is ever resolved.
I don't mind so much in comedies, it's when they interject it into a drama that I've come to loath it. Particularly one where other priorities are more obviously important.
