What about the fan service ? I was promised fan service, but so far i saw no one comenting on this, is there a strip scene with Misato like sadamoto artwork ?

Or does it only refer to naked Rei (booo) and kaworu and Shinji (that aioyo yo gay thing) ?
ANATA BAKA !?

I'm sure there's subtle or not so subtle GAINAXing here and there though. I'd forgotten they'd even made Rei's boobs jiggle a bit in 2.0's Third Impact :hahaha:

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

First, ppl complain about too much fanservice, and now it's too little, apparently. You still get plenty of girls wearing nothing other than plugsuits

Gahh, I just remembered

All the "homo homo" vibes Kaworu and Shinji emit in film can and do count as fujoshi fanservice as they tend to gravitate towards subtext anyway. Bits about girls giggling at parts of movie because of that would certainly seem to count as evidence. In other words

┌(┌ ^o^)┐ホモォ
┌(┌ ^o^)┐ホモォ
┌(┌ ^o^)┐ホモォ
┌(┌ ^o^)┐ホモォ
┌(┌ ^o^)┐ホモォ
┌(┌ ^o^)┐ホモォ
┌(┌ ^o^)┐ホモォ

squad should be happy - at least up to that point


I guess this is a sign of my male bias I didn't think of adding this in my first reply :lol:

Nope. No strip scenes. And Rei changing was nothing you didn't see in the original TV series.

In other words....no nips to be found in the entire film.

Thats pretty amazing considering this is Eva we're talking about. Nips and bouncing bossoms are exactly what we are usually given. No ass shots even? Then again this movie is heading into more serious territory and after episode 19 in NGE there really was little no fanservice from what I could remember.

Well technically there was, it was just mixed with very messed up scenes.
like Asuka's bathtub scene.

there's a pretty decent amount of jiggle in the first scene alone so I wouldn't get excessively distraught over Anno having turned into a srs bzns prude or anything

Well I guess. I did find it sexy watching Asuka take in deep breaths, watching her body rise up and down after successfully stopping Unit 01 from falling out of orbit with her booster rockets.

I guess I should feel like a failure as male because it didn't feel sexy to me at all - and that breathing part has been what both 4chan and 2ch seemed to clamor over the moment preview came out

Asuka doesn't have enough to really "jiggle" in my eyes sans that one shot that was in trailers too...

I didn't think of the scene as a fan service, but now I remember -- yep that was sexy.
(IMO there's no other reason to show Asuka in such a close up in such a form-fitting outfit.)

*edit* Different preferences and tastes I guess.

On a related note, in the six minute preview it feels as if some frames were cut from it, if only because the 'remove my helmet and jump' bit felt longer in the trailers.

it's not that I don't see where people are coming from with this, it's just that it never really jumped out at me like that in preview and I find it impossible call to make if it's intentional fanservice or just attractive female character positioned in a way that probably just gets to male instincts anyway.

There are those ridiculous Wille plugsuits that dip down into (as in, DIG DEEP INTO) the pilot's navel. Honestly...

But isn't this dipping into her navel too?
SPOILER: Show
Image
Edit: Bah nevermind, looking at Renewal I could tell it's the line that runs up the center of her plugsuit; I saw it dipping in a certain way that follows her contour and thought of part of that as dip into navel while not noticing the rest. I'll just blame Manga Entertainment and leave it at that.

I'm curious about this point, as Xard pointed out apparently the girls were jiggling during the show but it looks like they didn't have any equivalent of the bath scene from what I read so far...
