So I'm looking for more shows to load up on this season, and it's getting discouraging. I'm not finding very many good ones. What makes it worse is that so many of them are fanservicey, and that's a problem because the genres I like tend to also have the highest amounts of fanservice, which effectively cuts into my pool of reliable offerings. Very rare it is that I can sit through a show these days where the levels of fanservice are minor and minimal, or the show is just so good you can ignore the fanservice. I end up gambling and pushing through a few episodes just to see if the service dies down or goes away. Sometimes it does and I can watch, and sometimes it doesn't and it's unbearable....but I shouldn't have to gamble like that.
It's frustrating, especially when some of these shows have really good art styles or character designs that draw you in naturally, but it ends up being a bait and switch.
