Fan Service is often a sexually provocative moment or pose that takes place in manga and anime. It usually has no real purpose to a story, and serves as a lurid visual.


Fan Service is a broad term that typically refers to scenes that are added to titillate the viewer rather than advance the plot or character development. Such scenes are typically of a sexual nature, though other types of fan service do exist.
