Yes folks, Mitsuka-sensei sees nothing wrong with teaching class dressed like that.

The "other half" of how Nudism is portrayed in the media, used less often than the Innocent Fanservice Girl variation -- ironic, due to this being technically speaking a more realistic approximation of nudist beliefs.

The key difference between a Shameless Fanservice Girl and an Innocent Fanservice Girl is that while the Innocent Fanservice Girl's lack of a nudity taboo is based on the fact that she never knew of its existence -- i.e., she's too innocent to know better -- the Shameless Fanservice Girl knows ... she just doesn't care. She ignores nudity taboos by choice and couldn't care less who's disturbed by it.

This doesn't necessarily mean she prances around the streets in the nude 24/7. Perhaps she's just the type who spends all of her private time in her house without clothing, or only goes nude when she feels safe doing so, such as at the beach. But whatever the reasoning and specifics, the key factor is that she does understand that nudity is typically frowned upon by people... just not by her.

Her amount of consideration to people who are uncomfortable around her nudity can vary. Sometimes she will get dressed just for the sake of her house guests; other times she'll have a "screw you" attitude and not let the disturbed countenance of her house guests persuade her to stop being naked if she wants to be. It pretty much depends on what kind of person she is.

Satirical or comedic versions frequently have her facing no repercussions at all (much like her innocent sister-trope), or only comedic ones. Sometimes for extra comedic effect, her nudity will only be noticed by one person whilst being ignored by everyone else for no apparent reason. More serious portrayals will tend towards the discreet -- characters that reject the taboo but otherwise do not make it an issue, or only in semi-private situations where they are within their rights to decide what to wear -- or rather, what not to.

One specific caveat -- while this trope can overlap with Attention Whores, it is not a subtrope. That is to say, this is not "the exhibitionism trope", but rather, "the knowingly unashamed trope." This does not preclude a rare Attention Whore who is also a Shameless Fanservice Girl, but it is not a requirement. The polar opposite of Reluctant Fanservice Girl.

Examples of Shameless Fanservice Girl include:

Anime And Manga

  • Mitsuka-sensei from DearS is this in spades, and even the horny male teenagers in her class are turned off by her (despite being very attractive aesthetically) because of how far she takes this trope.
  • Haruhi Suzumiya: The main female character, Haruhi, doesn't have a problem with changing in public and doesn't care who sees her naked, and if they are bothered by it.
    • As time goes on she reaches a point where she refuses to change with Kyon in the room and screams at him to get out when he won't take a hint.
  • Yoshinoya-sensei from Hidamari Sketch she always tells her students that she can model nude if they wanted.
  • Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail mentions in one episode that maybe she should walk around the guild naked.
  • Rachel Stanley from Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple has no problem exposing herself more in order to gain more attention.
  • Blair from Soul Eater.
  • The Ranma ½ manga: Ranma is a bit of a downplayed version of this. He doesn't hate clothes; he just really doesn't care about whether he's naked or not. He's been known to go topless in front of men without batting an eyelid and has used his female form's good looks to tease men into giving him what he wants or needs. It's usually through Akane covering him up with clothes or a towel that he preserves any modesty.
    • Then again, he could dislike clothes. We do see him at home in nothing but boxers quite a bit.
    • Shampoo acts this way when she's trying to seduce Ranma. She simply doesn't have any problem with showing up in his bathroom naked.
  • Yoruichi Shihouin of Bleach. She claims this is because she spends so much time in cat form that she forgets to wear clothes, but chances are she just does it to fluster Ichigo.
    • Both. At the very first, it was because she spent so much time in cat form, but she finds Ichigo's flusteration funny. She was wearing only a shirt at one point and flipped the bottom up to make him blush shortly thereafter.
    • Then of course there is that wonderful hot spring scene, where Yoruichi strips, Ichigo protests, and when he looks she's a cat. After a few moments of conversing he looks back and she's still naked, but now human. This was specifically meant to make Ichigo flustered.
    • She also seems to just find it far more comfortable to not wear clothes.
  • Mio in Ano Natsu de Matteru is a deconstruction of this trope -- having been raised as a nudist her whole life she was never raised with a nudity taboo. However, instead of having the standard effect on her personality it actually causes her a lot of self confidence problems -- she's convinced that she's a weirdo in comparison to everyone else. She still doesn't wear clothing around the house, can't sleep with clothes on (even in group situations), and can't remember to wear underwear, but altogether she's humiliated by the fact that she's a "weird nudist" more than anything else. Ironically, or perhaps part of the deconstruction, she wears fairly conservative outfits for the most part (even going so far as to wear a hooded sweatshirt to the pool), and is the first anime and manga character on this list to actually call themselves a nudist, instead of just randomly deciding not to wear clothes when Fan Service calls for it.
  • In Battle Athletes (not to be confused with Battle Athletes Victory, the remake) Kris Christopher camly parades around the room she shares with her teammates completely naked as it's part of her culture/religion. The other girls are not particularly thrilled about this.
  • Saori Shikikagami from Ladies versus Butlers!! sees no problem with stripping on any given occasion. Even if it's by accident, she still treats it as no big deal. Her sister Sanae tries to keep her under control, but it doesn't work very well.
  • In To Aru Majutsu no Index, Accelerator and Last Order's adoptive parents often go around nude in their apartment. Accelerator doesn't really care.
  • Shigure of Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple. She does get pissed when Kensei Ma attempts to peek on her in the bath, but could care less about bathing with Kenichi, and doesn't even bother to lock the door to her room when she changes.
  • Mami of Esper Mami is a strange variant -- her father's a painter, and she works for him as a nude model. As a result, she has no hang ups about being nude, especially at home.
  • Kurumu Kurono from Rosario + Vampire is definitely one of the bouncier babes of the series. Well being a Succubus is no surprise, Kurumu knows she's hot and isn't shy about using her body for temptations. Her mother, Ageha is no eye-sore either, I guess beauty runs in the family.
  • Chocolat Misu from Sorcerer Hunters has no shame about stripping or showing off her body, at least around Carrot. Except once in the manga, when she has to take off her wet clothes to stay warm and blushes as she asks him to look away. A confused Carrot even lampshades it by reminding her that she is this trope.


Comic Books

  • Starfire is like this in the original Teen Titans comics. In the 2011 reboot, she's more of a Ms. Fanservice with an unhealthy dose of Ethical Slut.
  • So is Magical Native American Rainmaker in Gen 13, which is fitting seeing how she's an expy of Storm.
  • Reka in The Secret History is frequently naked and knows exactly what effect she has on men.
  • Titular character in Lady S has absolutely no problem escaping a house in her underwear. She once had to climb a roof, and removed her dress because it wasn't practical, rather than tearing it.


Fan Works


Film

  • Trash from Return of the Living Dead likes hanging out at graveyards naked, and the idea of asking anybody for something to wear does not occur to her for the rest of the movie.
    • Well, she does grab someone's vest when the Trioxin-tainted rain starts to fall, but in that case her concern is protection instead of modesty. She never does find any pants.
  • Mystique from the X-Men films does not give a damn about the implications of being naked all the time. It helps that her privates are naturally covered by blue scales and she probably doesn't feel the cold. It also helps that she can shapeshift the appearance of clothes onto herself when impersonating others, so actual clothing would be an impediment.
  • Black Mask 2: City of Masks: Chameleon's ability to render herself camouflaged or invisible doesn't affect her clothes. Simply put, she is naked in all of her fight scenes so that she can get the drop on her opponents. Despite her tendency to charge into combat without asking any questions, Chameleon does stop several times to talk. This seems to calm her down--which in turn seems to render her previously invisible body translucent or just plain visible in parts. This never seems to cause Chameleon any discomfort. In fact, Chameleon is naked when she voluntarily falls to her death in the hope that death will restore her to visibility--and she apparently attempts to fall with her front facing up.
  • The Girl in the Ferrari in National Lampoon's Vacation certainly qualifies as one.


Live-Action TV

  • Olivia Munn shows the attitude of this trope in this video from Attack of the Show.
  • The infamous Australian soap opera Number 96 had Miss. Hemmingway, a compulsive nudist who was in therapy to try and cure her dysfunction. She often "appeared" in the lobby of the resident psychiatrist character's office.
  • Zhaan from Farscape belongs to a species with no nudity taboo. She does wear clothes most of the time, though it's used for Fan Service at least once. She knows exactly how other life forms are likely to react to her nudity. Including Squick in case of the non-humanoid Rygel.
  • This South Florida reporter wears just a thong bikini bottom while doing a story on Haulover nude beach.
  • Passions: Charity demonstrates this trope by performing this impromptu striptease.
  • Baywatch, in "Hot Water" where Cody and C.J. have to tell an old man and two sun-bathing women to put some clothes on. The two ladies don't believe its a big deal as they went nude in Europe.

Web Comics

  • Tales Of Gnosis College: Both Ashley Madder and Laura Sato-Bevilaqua seem to fit this trope.Ashley's case got even more further after her transformation into a statue.Now she is kept on a museum display and her beautiful naked body is open for all to gaze at.Though her body is kept under tight security.Now none is disturbed by her nudity as her naked body has now gained an artistic demeanor and value.Ashley is now craved by many wealthy collectors of nude art. But the authority of the museum where Ashley's naked petrified body is on display is not eager at all to trade her away no matter how big the amount is.

{{[[2]] " Ashley's naked body on museum display as a work of art!!"}}

  • Grace progresses from Innocent Fanservice Girl to this after realizing her preference for nudity has sexual connotations to most people. She still doesn't agree with humankind's nudity taboo, but can fake it well enough to get along with people.
  • Guenevere in Arthur, King of Time and Space. Her family are naturists, and she tends not to wear clothes if she doesn't have to (and Paul can keep the art worksafe).
  • Zeetha in Girl Genius. After being accidentally stripped down to her very short leather bikini, she doesn't bother to search for clothes for dozens of pages.
    • Lucrezia. She removed her dress, just because she's more interested in looking at her new body than she is in modesty. At this point, she wears quite modest underwear, but someone else would be ashamed of being in this clothes in front of a guy.

Web Original

  • This is the whole idea behind the Naked Vlog trend on YouTube.
  • Faun Reinaka of Tasakeru. Her whole species tends to be like this.


Western Animation

  • The nudist Campbell family from Family Guy somehow go nude in public without more serious repercussions than their son getting bullied. They either ignore or fail to notice how disconcerting Peter and Lois initially find their nudity, and since nobody asks them politely to get dressed, it's hard to tell which.
  • The cast of Futurama tend to bounce around this. In some episodes, public nudity is completely normal, while in others, you can be arrested for streaking. Hilariously, the most common offender is Professor Farnsworth.

Real Life

  • Cindy Crawford has practiced casual toplessness, as shown by these paparazzi photos that were taken of her at the beach and pool.NSFW Cindy later discusses being one along with the photos on The Howard Stern Show
    • She also tells a Playboy interviewer about her having a business lunch topless with a guy from Pepsi while in Barbados for an international meeting:

Crawford: One day, my girlfriend, her boyfriend and I were sunbathing topless because that's Barbados - you can wear nothing if you want. And the Pepsi guy walks up and with my agent to meet us for lunch. I saw him coming and I wondered. Should I put on my top because I have a business relationship with him? I didn't want him to get offended because the rest of the beach had seen me with my top off. Meanwhile as he's walking towards me, he's saying to my agent "I hope she puts on her top.". He wasn't even being a schmuck, like wanting to see. He wanted to keep our relationship professional.
Playboy: Did you or didn't you?
Crawford: I left it off and it was fine with everyone.
