Is it just me who noticed that?
Especially, in the case of school related anime.
Are anime creators obsessed with swimsuits or what?

It is an easy and lazy way to attract viewers.
Why watch beach episodes when you can watch bleach episodes?

Pretty much answered already but it's also cause of the whole "plot sells" meme (basically Anime boobs or abs depending on the show.)

That's not the case. Obviously you only watch ecchi/harem anime.

Well it's Japan, where countless gods and fetishes resides. Swimsuits just happen to have a lot of sect members.

I bet you're the first one to notice this, OP. OT: it's just a trope nowadays, kind of like the touring episode or the excursion episode with curry cooking. But while the latter two give you space for relationship development, the beach episode gives space for fanservice. Why wouldn't you include such an episode.

Check anime stat: 56days....no captain obvious, you are not the only one who notice it...while you are at it, you can also add, Christmas, valentine, onsen, amusement park, new year celebration, and school festival...

But set that aside, It doesn't take rocket science to explain "why" so many anime had it... beach episode allow girl to wear skimpy swimsuit...and thats the easiest way to set up fanservice...

Nah, it's by far not "every anime". It depends on the genre. If it's shounen or harem or ecchi, or all three, yes, you'll get a swimsuit/beach episode.
But if it's a shoujo, josei, seinen or any anime that focuses more on the story than fanservice, you won't get the beach/swimsuit episode. From my favorite anime on my profile, only Gintama has a swimming pool episode, but in a later season. And frankly, they focus more on the male fanservice lol.

Not always the case in school related shows. These things more often than not usually happen around ecchi/harem anime. You ain't wrong that school can have them but its not usually the case, if anything school tends to usually make more episodes on festival-related episodes or anything event related to any sort of activity.

nothing better than a mid break fanservice


      I am looking at the stars.
      They are so far away, and their light takes so long to reach us.
      All we ever see of stars are their old photographs.

You might want to take a closer look. In most cases you'll realize that the animation quality is plummeting for that episode. Pretty much half of it is just panning shots.

It's a mid-cour money saver. The creators hope we don't notice if they put a truckload of juicy tits in.

As far as production tactics go, I can fap to that.

its funny how many people say its just for fan service when thats not really the case as not all shows have high doses of ecchi
it can indeed be a fan service episode but Id say that those kinds of episodes exist more so because people swim in real life. Just like Christmas or Festival episodes

Because of 3 things:

1. Fanservice, because seeing a handsome character in swimwear is pretty sexy rite?

2. To cool off a bit. Most of the time, beach/any swimsuit related episodes are filler to help us calm down after big things have happened and to help the animators take it easy (beach eps are not that well animated most of the time).

3. Because we as people also go swimming from time to time and letting characters come over more humanly.

One can simply avoid fanservicing episodes, that being said i gotta be honest i, sometimes, wait for the swimsuit episode for particular animes. İt doesn't mean rest of the anime is thrash or swimsuit episode is not worth to watch, aaand also this is a good point

1 Fan service and hoping to increase disc sales

2 Easy Summer atmosphere just like Christmas party or New year' shrine for winter

3 One of the few PE classes that boys and girls do together.

All of these three probably

Being used to swimsuit/beach episodes, its always fun to guess when said episodes is going to happen. Usually these episodes are shown in middle or late in series, but seems like lately studios compete with each other, who airs those earliest. Maybe to try catch more viewers early on airing?

when you say swimsuits are you referring to the indoor pool episode, the beach episode, or both?
Also, did you notice the skiing trip episode op, i can't rap my head around that one

Why do all school anime have to be about students? why don't we have the story of how the most beautiful girl in school falls in love with the janitor , but this is already enamoured of the cook , which is a 200-year-old alien robot with neko ears . This way we've got a more interesting love triangle , haven't we? no? ok , I know ,I suck at that shit.

The swimsuit lobby is on the production committee of almost every anime in Japan, pulling strings. I'm surprised you didn't know that tbh, it's an open secret.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

I wish they actually were...because then we'd get actual swimsuits rather than just excuses for bikinis to come off in the name of fanservice.

Swimsuit episode is that frequent in anime that it's not rare to see anime parodies swimsuit episode. Like in Girlish Number for example when the characters clearly say that's it's for fanservice purpose.

There's an unspoken rule within the current gen anime which within ep7~9, there has to be a fan-service episode if it's a school or slice of life anime.

Well, don't ask me why Japan does that...
My guess is to bump up the BD sales .
