Quote from animus
I'm at the chapter 60-70 range, and the chapters that've had the princess nude either had hair covering her breasts or some type of steam like in the bath. It seems like they're toning it down in the sex department as well. Not a sex scene in sight. Which is weird since it's such a stark contrast to the beginning chapters where you had sex and naked boobs left and right.
Ubel Blatt wasn't very "gritty" to begin with. While Koinzell is no knight in shining armor, its pretty clear from the first 20-30 chapters that he fits the "hero" part of the "antihero" label. Anyway, what's wrong with a character who DOESN'T want to murder a passing barmaid and dry hump her corpse for giggles? Thats more "batshit crazy" and "downright evil" than "realistic" or "mature",
If you're talking about general fanservice, well, there's no real shortage of that either, is there? The mangaka finds someway to shoehorn it in every few chapters or so. To the ridiculous point where charaters will have epic standoffs - while they were naked and in the bath. Sure, its more subtle than Koinzells "OK - SEX TIME!" antic in the first chapter or Altea's creepy desire to sleep with a boy who looks no older than 13-15, but its still there.
And here's the key point - the most blatant cases of nudity/fanservice only occur at the early chapters of the manga. Folks like you are supposed to be drawn in for the H-material, and then stay for the story. Although by the sheer fact that this topic exists, I'm guessing it din't work so well, huh?
