I was suddenly reminded of something that has popped up in a few BONES anime that I really enjoyed. REFERENCES TO OTHER BONES ANIME!

Ouran references the character of Quon from RahXephon in I believe episode 19.

Then there's the fact that in the ending of Ouran (Which was anime original) they introduced the Tonnere corporation. In Star Driver the Tonnere corporation is ran by the husband of Kanako Watanabe.

In the second episode of Space Dandy (in the dub anyway) they make reference to a Ramen shop called Fullmetal noodleist. Later in the same episode, you can see the BONES logo floating in another dimension.

Of course these don't really amount to anything, but they are nice nods to one another. Have you guys caught any others?

Also on a topic change, since we have 3 new BONES anime releasing soon, any guesses on which companies are going to license them? (I'm trying to get some discussion going xD) I'm almost positive that Funimation will get BBB, and it will probably get a broadcast dub. Also based off of how Yona is doing for them, I imagine that they will probably license Akagami no Shirayukihime as well. Because both series are shoujo fantasy with red haired heroines. Show by Rock will most likely go to Sentai. Because Funimation grabs the mainstream stuff, stuff with a lot of action, and fanservice shows. Sentai usually gets everything else, so I imagine they will probably get SBR.

I downloaded SBR the other day, and there is an interesting feature, despite being a rhythm game, it has boss fights. I wonder if that aspect will be adapted into the anime, if so it might be a bit different than what it appears to be.

Yeah, I probably overreacted a bit when I saw the Rock trailer. lol, I used to do season previews and honestly I think I was overexposed to bad shows that exploit rather than explore. I have to be clear, I don't dislike moe simply because of the art style, but because of its association to fanservice. There are anime, such as Higurashi, that adopt moe-esque art but aren't nearly as exploitive because it actually has a plot to focus on. This new anime seems to embody a lot of the similar stereotypes that I generally see in those shows that pander to either male or female otakus. That's lots of red flags for me. Of course, it can still subvert the genre, but we will see I guess. And yeah, maybe BONES need to pander to bring in some profit.

Probably Star Driver lol..The fanservice in Space Dandy doesn't really bother me much? I think it's because the show itself is so fantastically ridiculous that the fanservice is part of the parody.

Captain Earth's fanservice never really jumped out to me for some reason. Besides belly button forte, I cant really remember much in terms of fanservice. I'd think Star Driver has more and more pandering esque, but then again that might be part of it's over the top appeal. Whenever a character loses a fight due to entering fanservice vision, I don't really know what else to say xD

NotJizzyHitler | 03-03-15, 3:59 PM
probably captain earth, it may not of had the most in quantity but it was the most panderingy and shameless

Space Dandy for me. I never thought about Ouran as an fanservice anime tbh. Just straight shoujo comedy.

Thanks for recommendations Cyclone!

Also here's an interesting question. (At least to me) BONES doesn't do a whole lot of fanservice shows (which I'm glad about) but they have done some. So I was wondering which show you guys think has the most fanservice in it?

In my mind it comes down to either Ouran or Space Dandy. But I feel like the fanservice in Space Dandy was more for comedic effect than for straight fanservice. My vote has to go to Ouran simply because the host club literally exists to provide fanservice. Although Star Driver has quite a bit too now that I think about it. But all three of these "fanservice shows" are completely different from each other...

Which do you think has the most?

cyclone1993 | 03-03-15, 3:24 PM
Zankyou no Terror is a good one, as is Space Dandy (if you haven't seen it) I highly recommend both Arpeggio of Blue Steel and Kinghts of Sidonia, they are both CG series, but the stories are really great if you can get over the CGness of it all. Kill la Kill is a fantastic one. If you want a more drama filled/romance that's done well Nagi no Asukara fits the bill nicely. As of shows that are airing now, I recommend Shirobako which gives an inside look into the anime industry, and is pretty much teaching me stuff every episode, while being entertaining and inspiring at the same time. Of course most of these are my personal picks, but a lot of them have been very well received by the anime public at large, which can be considered a good or bad thing based on how you view it I suppose.

If you have any questions, I'll be glad to help and answer them!
