Fanservice

As a former collegiate anime club president at Virginia Tech, I found it deeply amusing that the over at Steven Den Beste's site, a site known in the past year as a rather hard-hitting military & geopolitical affairs blog (as well as deep thought on engineering), the latest entry is on fanservice in anime, which is basically animated T&A you throw into your work to please the fans (hence the name).

And speaking of Aika, I can vouch for it having perhaps the highest ratio of fanservice per minute of any anime I've come across (that wasn't, of course, blatantly pornographic). It's so ridiculous it crosses over into the sublime, interesting and amusing because it's so blatant and over the top. Although, I wouldn't go so far as to recommend it to anyone...
