* In ''Manga/{{Mahoromatic}}'', furo scenes provide occasional opportunity for plot development, as well as excuses to show off the assets of the primary female cast members. Note that only one major female cast member is over the age of sixteen, as Mahoro appears to be between the ages of sixteen and twenty, but is in fact [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld only nine]]; see also {{Lolicon}}.
** You forgot [[HotForStudent Shikijo-sensei]]!

* ''ShikabaneHime'' has almost the entire female cast in a furo at one point, with strategically placed bubbles, of course.

''Furo Scene'' is a bathing scene involving the use of the Japanese style of bathing mostly for the purpose of {{Fanservice}}. A furo is a Japanese bathing tub similar to the Western hot tub; it is not used for washing but for soaking and relaxing. Most homes in Japan, and even some apartments, have one; they are usually big enough for two or more persons to bathe together. Bathing in [[PublicBathhouseScene public baths]], called "sentou", is a common social activity, although it is typically gender-segregated. The process of a Furo differs from western style bathing: the entire house hold uses the same bathwater, but keeps it clean by first showering and washing off outside of the bathtub and then getting in solely for the purpose of relaxation.

* ''Anime/SkyGirls'' goes out of its way to ensure at least one bath scene in each episode.

to:

* ''Anime/SkyGirls'' goes out of its way As a running gag in ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'', poor Shizuka never gets to ensure at least one finish a bath scene or shower, and takes them ''all the time''. Literally so, as she's tried in each episode.other ''time periods'', just to be interrupted by Nobita and Doraemon.
* Happens quite a lot in ''Manga/FairyTail'', almost all of them with Lucy.
** Most notably the first ones are in Episode 3 and Chapter 4.
** Lucy has three more as filler scenes in Episodes 21, 29, and 42.
** Lucy and Cana have two together near the beginning and end of the S-Class Trial arc.
** The Fairy Tail special, Welcome to Fairy Hills!, has one with Erza, Evergreen, Levy, Bisca, Juvia, and Laki.
** Chapter 261 does it in an Onsen, this time with the "guys trying to peep on the female side" part (led by Natsu of all people!) Naturally, [[CovertPervert Erza]] sees no problem in telling them to join...



* The second episode of ''Anime/{{Gunbuster}}'' has Noriko, Kazumi, and Jung Freud bonding in the space station's Japanese-style bath. Inevitably, cadets doing mech training start parading past the window.
* ''Anime/HanaukyoMaidTai''. Taro and several of the maids, during the HotSpringsEpisode. Also Taro and Konoe together in Episode 14.
* In ''Manga/HellTeacherNube'', we see the main characters being chased out of their baths by horrendous mold, hauntings, and worse. Then they all visit a public bathhouse while they figure out who's causing all this trouble. Bath scenes were split evenly between the male and female classmates and teachers. [[spoiler: It turns out that the {{youkai}} living in the bath house were the culprits, as the place is about to close ''and'' the kindly owner is being pressured by {{yakuza}}; Nube finds out, talks to them and they join forces to help the lady ''and'' kick the yakuza out.]]
** Izuna also [[MsFanservice got the majority of gratuitous bath scenes]] in her own apartment, to the point that her [[{{Youkai}} Tube Foxes]] often popped up with signs reading "[[LampshadeHanging Fanservice]]!" to conveniently cover her assets.



* ''Manga/HighSchoolOfTheDead'' deftly blends in its gratuitous Fanservice without slowing down the plot pacing or dominating the action. The episode where they reached a safehouse permitted them a cool-down interlude, which was packed with drunken, groping female bathers. Highest ecchi quotient of the series, yet still managed substantial CharacterDevelopment.
* There is a very female fan service one in ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' when Kotetsu and Onikiri make a citrus bath for Tomoe to calm him down after having to fill in for Nanami at school.
* Several chapters of ''Manga/{{Kochikame}}'' have Ryotsu and fellow police officers relaxing in a sentou and even flashback stories Ryotsu's boyhood life involving sentous.



* ''Manga/MaicchinguMachikoSensei'' has a few episodes with these scenes. Expect one or more male students (or even a teacher) to sneak a peek. One episode had a teacher and student flying in a kite and landing in a furo by accident. Of course, the eponymous Miss Machiko and her students were there at the time and the men (mostly) hid themselves.
* A chapter of ''Manga/MyLovelyGhostKana'' is held at a public bath where Kana ponders the variety of bodies and souls that exist in the world, from the brand new to the very old. It's incredibly heartwarming.
* See this ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' manga [[http://mangastream.com/read/naruto/93368877/3 two page color spread]] featuring Naruto and his friends in two separate furos. Compare the girls chatting happily and relaxing, while the boys fight [[FemaleGaze and show far more skin than the girls.]]



* ''Manga/OutlawStar'''s 23rd episode is their HotSpringsEpisode, with the female members of the cast enjoying a number of onsen (the CuteMonsterGirl complaining that it wasn't hot enough and winding up in a ''lava pool''). At the same time, the episode's A-plot involves Gene climbing to the top of the mountain to get nude footage of the priestess whose temple was built there. When he arrives up at the top of the mountain, he finds himself on the snow-covered glass roof looking down on what is either a giant stripperiffic laundry, or an odd sentou, filled with barely-dressed miko.
* Episode 7 of ''LightNovel/ThePetGirlOfSakurasou'' has several of the main characters taking a bath in a public bathhouse due to the plumbing being broken in their apartment. While the girls are busy doing SkinshipGrope, Jin tells a joke at Sorata's expense by loudly asking him which girl he's fantasizing about. Which causes Nanami to hurl a bucket at his head.



* Very common in Manga/{{Sekirei}}, which neatly combines fanservice with significant plot and character development. The [[IncrediblyLamePun tit]]ular females do a majority of their serious conversations while relaxing in the baths.

* A rare, non-fanservicey example is Phoebe Heyerdahl relaxing in a furo after her fencing match with her father, while still in her fencing outfit. Justified as ''HeyArnold'' is a kid's show.

* Many times in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' with various members of the [[ImprobablyFemaleCast mostly female cast]], from Hayate and the Wolkenritter in ''A's'' to the Forwards in ''[=StrikerS=]''. There was even a brief Furo Scene with Nanoha's father in the first season, whose heavily scarred body serves as a ContinuityNod to ''TriangleHeart3SweetSongsForever'', where we learn that he was a bodyguard in his "old job". And that "bodyguard" was a bit of an understatement.
