‘Fanservice—gratuitous framing of characters in a sexualizing/objectifying manner—exists, as the name implies, to titillate the audience. At its worst, it’s massively obtrusive, basically stepping between a work and the audience, so that it can point at a character and say “This character doesn’t matter. They’re not a person worth caring about, just body parts.”’
