For devoted anime fans, there are few things more annoying than anime with too much fan service. While fan service can sometimes be kind of fun, when left in the wrong hands, it can wreck an otherwise good show. Most fan service is aimed at straight men, so its inclusion can potentially alienate or demean women and queer people.
Even when that's not the case, excess fan service can make a good series appear ridiculously profane, which limits an otherwise brilliant show's potential reach. There are a ton of anime that didn't need fan service, as even without the added sexiness, they manage to tell wonderfully engrossing stories.
