Well yeah.
Males can go fudge out, girls aren't for sexualizing, it's guys where it's at.
Kyoani has finally come into the open with that opinion.

Wow. Just-- wow. Even with reading the description first I was somehow unprepared for that level of naked. I approve. Good job, KyoAni.

Well, Kyoani CAN go full lewd if they want.
And what they want are males getting naked in detail.

I don't care for the series, but damn, that was great. I love me some manservice.

KnK has sexualized the female characters in it multiple times, so go be a little whiny, brat to someone who is actually stupid enough to listen to your ridiculous 'KyoAni only sexualizes males now!!' bullshit.

That lowered my motivation to finish the show. I'd rather they keep the manservice contained to their fujoshi oriented series.

Why is it OK for "fujoshi" series (Free!) to have sexualized women, but it's completely wrong for "otaku" series (KnK) to have sexualized men?


Why do I even bother asking?

Very amusing, particularly how after Sakura started eating her snack she completely stopped reacting to whatever Hiromi was doing.

I don't watch series like Free!, so why would I comment on that? If I were into those kind of series, my opinion would likely be the same except I'd be complaining about the otaku oriented fanservice in Free!

Besides, I somehow doubt that Free! even has any otaku pandering to begin with considering even Megami, the bishoujo magazine, teased a Free! poster and whatever her name was ended up being fully clothed. I also recall hearing how the girls were barely ever even shown in swimsuits in the whole series.

The point is us girls don't -generally- complain about sexy women in anime "aimed at us" (Free had Ama-chan sensei and her swimsuit model secret past, plus Gou which many men loved), but whenever a sexy guy turns out in a male-oriented show, guys just lose their shit.

I bet there would be plenty of complaints if those two characters were shown running around with barely anything covering their naughty bits.

Did the teacher's swimsuit model past ever show up other than that time that the one guy saw some old gravure photos of her? Obviously that doesn't compare to whatever the hell Hiromi was doing in this short thing.

EDIT: And I gotta completely agree with what strawberry said in the immediate post above.
