Fact: Anime became gradually less sexualized, not more, in the last 20 years.

Your point of view is biased.

That's true, and Americans are to blame. It used to be only indirect influence ('cultural leakage',) nowadays it is direct with shows like LWA being influenced by Wester money.

I liked diebuster better than Gunbuster

Well you see uncensored tits less now than you used to. Most of what I've seen from the 80s has them, even stuff for a younger audience. Pantyshots are way more sexual now though. They used to be mostly a joke. Now the camera is at like a crazy angle to make it more explicit. You probably couldn't have done a show like fate/Kalied in the 80s or 90s and had it air on tv.

ITT: People that don't know about the OAV bubble of the 80s talk about the state of japanese animation as a unified figure

Wonder why it says "fact" on there.

Yeah, these days, the only place you can find nipples is in extremely low-budget, glorified softcore porn. The amount of nudity in those sorts of shows is much, much higher than anything you'd see back in the day, but among general stuff, it's extremely rare to see naked breasts now. There's no way Ranma 1/2 would show nipples if it was made today, for instance.

They certainly became more vanilla at least.

Sexualisation used to be more tasteful. Older anime seemed to understand that fan service is a lot more effective if you don’t shove it in the viewer’s face.

Are they though? Western cable TV dramas only seem to be able to keep audience attention with lazily thrown in sex scenes, and Devilman Crybaby was probably one of the most Western-friendly anime of recent years.

not true at all. xebec over-sexualized the characters in 2199 while the original usy was a very prude and serious work of art. modern anime are degenerate while old anime are patrician and subtle in regards to the fanservice they provide.

Honestly, nipples weren't that arousing in old anime.

Completely false, the only reason you notice more sexual content in old anime is precisely because it's done so sparsely that the times where it does happen grab your attention, whereas nowadays it's so common you become desensitized and at some point you stop noticing it at all.

It's a different kind of sex appeal. It's quarantined and everyone has to be middle aged due to the feminist influence.

This

Sexualization in older anime occurred naturally, instead of KYAN DONT PEEK UNDER MY SKIRT BAKA like we have today

They have lost a lot of subtlety

yea, i certainly remember usy, plastic little, wicked city, eva, devilman ova, city hunter, most of lupin, gunbuster, zeorymer, megazone, bubblegum crisis, dirty pair, urusei, iczer, leda etc. being very subtle with their fanservice.

Sexualization in older anime occurred naturally
refer to , nice try though

They have lost a lot of subtlety
outright flashing a characters tits in the audiences face is anything but subtle you fucking retard. its the exact opposite. instead of pretending that the fanservice is a biproduct you decide to make it the primary point of an entire sequence.
