You may be ardent in saying that ecchi, fan service, and all things pervy are killing the anime industry, but you know you like it. It is not so much that those coylittle panty flashes or strategic boob windows in medieval armor are even arousing, it’s just that it provides simple and playful humor. However, some anime series are worse about it than others. Some taking it way too far to the point that it is no longer fun.
So what anime series play jump rope with the line of funny and offending your delicate sensibilities with its animated springy bits?
This list doesn’t include actual hentai, so spoiler alert, there will be no Boku no Pico, Bible Black, Night Shift Nurses, Midnight Sleazy Train… I’ve given too much away. Let’s just carry on, shall we?
20. School Days
School Days is not so much perverted as it is … Really slutty. It starts off as your run-of-the-mill romance story and then quickly progresses to the male protagonist dipping his wick in anything with girl bits. Then it just gets really violent and dark. Regardless, there’ no actual nudity, but the rampant sluttery just narrowly gets School Days a spot on the Top 20 most Perverted Anime Series list.
19. Food Wars!
You would be forgiven for hating Food Wars! based on its first few episodes. It is essentially the main character being an absolutely stunning cook, so much so that he makes girls squirm, squeal, and have their clothes burst off with passion. Well, that last bit only happens in their minds, but you still get to see it. However, as it goes on, it becomes less about making all the girls squeal and more about cooking delicious food competitively.
18. Burn-Up Excess
Burn-Up Excess follows the story of mostly female cops in futuristic Tokyo. Created in the late 1990’s, it has that old style animation ala Trigun, but with more jiggle. While the overall theme is boobs with badges and the fan service was what gave it its title of “Excess,” the real crime was that it was just a terrible anime.
Sekirei makes no effort to keep its pervy side a secret. One of the major elements in the anime is that the Sekirei, a race of all beautiful girls, need to kiss a human with special genes in order to unlock their full power. This means lots of smooching for the normal men and women in the series, and, of course, all the girls are stacked.
16. The Qwaser of Stigmata
Not unlike Sekirei, Qwaser is also upfront with its potential for perverse content. In this series, the key element needed for the male protagonist to use his powers is found in the breasts of women, Naturally, there is boobs of all shapes and sizes and they are put into a number of blush-worthy circumstances.
Ikkitousen, its plot can easily be summed up as “school girls fighting”. You don’t need to know why or anything else. Its core fan base watch because girls are screaming, getting bloodied up, and doing it all in short, short skirts and weirdly shiny skin. Oh, and bouncy boing-boings. So many shiny, bouncy things.
14. Girls Bravo
Girls Bravo is about a short guy that has been bullied by girls so much that he breaks out in hives when they touch him. However, one day he is transported to a planet which is basically all girls, but there is one that doesn’t give him hives. While Girls Bravo is actually a pretty sweet love story, the thirst on a planet of almost all women is real.
If fan service could be turned into a plot, it would be the plot of Eiken. Essentially the male protagonist gets invited to join the Eiken Club, one filled with beautiful, busty babes, after accidentally groping a member’s chest. However, he has come to love the girl he groped, but every attempt to get to know her ends in deviously pervy situations. That is what the anime is about. No more, no less.
12. Prison School
Prison School had a choice to make when it was first created with its premise: turn into a palatable romance or fan service it up. It chose the latter. After being shunned by all the girls of their recently co-ed school, five boys decide their time is better spent peeping. However, when caught, they are sent to the school’s secret prison. From there is it all tight clothes, punishment games, and vague sub-dom relationships.
11. Excel Saga
Excel Saga is kind of complicated. It actually started off relatively PG and degraded into fan service throughout its 26-episode run. However, while its satire remained fun throughout, the boobs, the butts, and the pervy content got so bad by the final episode it wasn’t ran in many countries.
Not unlike Sekirei, Freezing is about a group of powerful girls, called Pandoras, that need specially trained men, called Limiters, in order to unlock their true powers. While it could easily be the sub-par action anime that it is, someone somewhere decided to try to spice things up by making it really unnecessarily perverted.
9. B Gata H Kei
The premise of B Gata H Kei promises something that should be borderline hentai. It is all about a girl that wants to have 100 love conquests in high school, but first has to lose her virginity. While the entire plot could be wrapped up by walking up to any man and saying “Nice shoes, wanna fuck?” She wants it to be special, so the show just ends up being a lot of perverted, but safe, gags.
