Been watching a ton of Anime and reading some Manga these past few months. I'm mostly drawn to Slice of Life and comedy shows, although I will watch other genres occasionally.

I tend to be mostly drawn to shows that not a lot of people love. I love Darling in the Franxx and really enjoyed Sword Art Online (only seen first season so far, and in terms of a fantasy RPG type show, I much preferred Konosuba in all aspects other than the Animation quality)

EDIT: Judging by how popular Anime is, wouldn't this be better as a Sticky thread?

So, here it goes.

I feel that anime and manga are decreasing in quality.

Mainly, the fanservice is what kills it for me. The objectification, the oversexualization - all of that just ruins the whole experience.
It really is all about sexualizing the bodies of women and girls, however young/old they are. Just look at Momo Yaoyorozu.

It's disgustingly disturbing, but somehow, it has an ever-increasing presence in Japanese media.

It really disappoints me as a viewer/reader.
So you have deleted your original post that was before mine and reposted it, so it looks like I respond to nothingness, huh?

Something tells me, that you don't like when people don't notice you, my dear.

Also, why anyone would care about your ****** taste in anime?
There are lots of shows without fanservice, but the fact that you and people like you, only notice those with fanservice, means that either you aren't genuine in your concerns and just want to cause maximum OUTRAGE or you just specifically watch shows with fanservice and complain about it later.

Also, what's this outrage of yours should accomplish here and now?
This is not forum of people who make anime and manga. Go, cry to Japanese. Tell me later if they will care about you Mormonic ways.

That's generally the same for any show. Female characters are there to be their own character of course, but they're also always designed to look attractive/pretty for male audiences to remain interested. This has been the case any show/cartoon/movie/anime in existence. There's a reason you rarely see ugly or fat female leads in shows/movies/anime with rare exceptions.

found a series called "Tales of the Corporate Slave Succubus"

and it's pretty wholesome. Succubus has a job to where they have to meet a quota of draining vitality from dreams of men. The mc herself is an overworked employee.

In the first chapter the Succubus tells the guy she would give him any dream he desires, and he chooses to play videogames with her. Because of his irregular schedules he doesn't have the time for such pleasentries and he doesn't have the friend to hang out with and work with, plus she is nice to hang out with.
So she begins making the guy her regular and coming by everynight, fulfilling his dream.

The best chapter was of course the night the guy talks about his father that passed and wonders if he is proud of what his son has become. The succubus leaves before the guy goes to sleep, but when does sleep he has a dream about his father and they talk to one another throughout the dream...the guy realizes that Lily gave him that chance.

Some new manga I've started reading

Cute Little Granny Girl Hinata-chan
The story revolves around an 88 grandmother that reincarnates in the present day. Shenanigans happens as she kind of has a fish out of water in her little Pre-k thing. There is another girl that says she has reincarnated as well, we don't know who but some are speculating that she may have been a WWII veteran.

Love you so I kill you; The moon is beautiful tonight, but first, die

Basically an illness comes about where it causes the person to want to ravagely murder the person they love.
