Anime Kenkai: Fan-Exploitation and Me

Good day class, today is going to be our lecture day and unfortunately I’ve chosen a bit of a heavy topic for us to start with. It’s the meaning of “Fan Service” or more what it should be called “Fan Exploitation”. I know, I know, this is something everyone has an opinion on and everyone wants to discuss what to do and what not to do, but please pay attention to what I have to say.
