Usually featuring characters in skimpy or skin-tight clothing (or none at all), under the assumption that it will attract or “reward” viewers, Fan-service is material added expressly to please the audience. The characters are usually female (cheesecake), though Fan-service of male characters (beefcake) is actually just as, if not more, common.

Not to be confused with porn (or Hentai), Fan-service does offer a fair amount of gratuitous panty shots and glimpses of breasts and sexy content is considered the standard fare. But Fan-service can also indicate flashy mecha attacks, long guitar/bass/drum solos in a concert, or long fight scenes. Whatever “services” the fans (more than the story) – that’s the bottom line for Fan-service.
