1) Oh, the Hell With It
Case Study: Queen's Blade

Queen's Blade is what happens when the anime industry just doesn't care anymore. Consider the origins of the franchise: it started off as a series of "visual combat books" for a game, but the people who bought these books never actually played the game at hand. They just stared at the artwork showing female warriors bursting out of their armored bustiers. Naturally, this turned Queen's Blade into a minor sensation in Japan's nerdier scenes, and soon there were Queen's Blade toys, manga, video games, and an anime series that some TV stations aired uncensored. Is it porn or a legitimate show? Does that even matter now?
Queen's Blade openly warns viewers about its nature, though it may surpass even the most cynical expectations. Not content with including fetishes common among anime fans, Queen's Blade invents some bizarre new fetishes of its own. The first episode opens with the show's heroine fighting a demonic girl whose hand-shaped hairstyle squeezes acidic milk from her breasts. Other highlights of the show include a warrior who wears a snake as a thong, a single mother with a ridiculously oversized chest, an angel who spills "milk" all over herself, and a scene where the aforementioned demon-woman's acid-spewing boobs grow so huge that they explode know what? We give up. This list is over.
