It found a voice... now it needs a body.


Definition of fanservice.

It's a unusual word and surprisingly it's of Japanese origin even though it's essentially two English words joined together. It basically means a hint of something sexual within a comic or anime that's just included to titillate. Quite often they are intentionally humourous. This isn't the same as a blatant nudity such as someone in the shower with their full nudity visible, it's more of just a brief glimpse such as a female character tripping over and flashing her underwear.


Motoko climbing out of the Tachikoma bum first is an example of fanservice.


Motoko wearing scantily clad clothing is another example fanservice.


A naked cyborg doesn't count as fanservice as her nudity is relevant to the storyline.
