After Service is the second live album by Yellow Magic Orchestra, directly following their (at the time) final studio album, Service. The album features former ABC member David Palmer on additional drums. A film version was released alongside the album. After Service features "Kageki na Shukujo" (過激な淑女 "Radical Lady"?), which was released in a studio version as a single, but does not feature on any of their albums (compilations excepted).

After Service was later expanded and remixed by Brian Eno under the title Complete Service.[1]
