We use so much terminology that many casual fans might be unaware of, I thought it might behoove us to provide some useful information. This wikipedia link contains quite a bit of terminology. If anyone else would like to add, edit, clarify, etc... by all means; feel free.

TRSIctionary entry for "jigglenauts":

Jigglenauts: adj. Having copious amounts, in direct relation to ecchi fan service. i.e. "Gravion Zwei has jigglenauts of fan service."

TRSIctionary entry for "Jigglewatts":

Jigglewatts: adj. (alt. form of jigglenauts) Having copious amounts, in direct relation to ecchi fan service. i.e. "Plastic Little has jigglewatts of fan service."

TRSIctionary edit for "Jigglewatts":

I imagine Jigglewatts to be a general measure of jigglage. Very much akin to how earthquakes are measured on the richter scale, The overall jigglage of an episode, movie, or series can rate anywhere between 1 and 10 jigglewatts on the jiggascale.
With a ranking of 8-10 Jigglewatts, an anime can really be considered a heavy contender amungst the best jigglenauts available today. ..Or at least best delivering of the jiggles/fan service.

TRSIctionary further reading for the root word "Jiggle":

Satoshi Urushihara's anime Plastic Little is disputably the first anime to utilize the "Jiggle Counter".

I know this anime is new on the US side, but since seeing it. It is now the anime I think of when I think of panty shots Rosario + Vampire. I think it is because the preview shot is nothing but a panty shot.

I've seen that one, it does have a lot of panty shots. And I do feel that hurts R+V in that reguard as the preview image is the only thing that comes to mind when thinking of that show and panty shots.

Though for me personally when I think of panty shots I will always think of Dead Or Alive as that is where I learned about panty shots back in 2000 on the Dreamcast.

Sorry, my bad frown... Yes and Najica Blitz Tactics grin

With all this talk of Panties I'm going to have to line up a little "
PAW" ( Pantsu Anime Weekend )
before I start on Clannad after story and the Clannad Movie

I discovered the difference between an otaku and a weeaboo today.

An otaku is obsessed with japanese entertainment. i.e. anime, hentai, figures, manga, etc...

A weeaboo is obsessed with japanese culture. i.e. language, pocky, bento, fashion, etc...
