Divergence Eve - Divergence Eve - Netflix
Divergence Eve (ダイバージェンス・イヴ, Daibājensu Ivu) is a thirteen episode Japanese anime series created by Takumi Tsukumo and directed by Hiroshi Negishi, with production by Operation EVE and animation production from RADIX. The series is a science fiction story set in the far future, incorporating aspects of space opera. The character-driven storyline focuses primarily on the psychology of the main character, her social interactions, her inhuman abilities, and the conspiracy surrounding them. The technology is often secondary to this, but it is not ignored; several aspects, including their means of faster-than-light travel, are explained and loosely based on modern physics. The series was a hit in Japan, which led to the creation of a sequel, Misaki Chronicles, which also ran for 13 episodes. In North America, the television series was initially licensed by ADV Films and was released in 3 volumes on VHS and DVD. Sentai Filmworks re-release the series in a box set, including Misaki Chronicles.
Divergence Eve - Fan service - Netflix
The most controversial aspect of Divergence Eve by far is the amount of fan service used. Nearly all the women in the series have slightly larger than usual breasts, including the medical staff and unnamed bridge crew. The bust measurements of the main characters range from 89 to 104 centimetres in their official profiles, but all have waist sizes of 60 centimetres or less. They initially had a small tendency to be unrealistically bouncy, though this effect has been quickly reduced over the course of the series. The training outfits used by the main characters are similar to tankinis, but with the top half's bottom ending very high. Their flight uniforms are skin-tight, and the small interiors of their R.A.s make for close-up scenes, sometimes at immodest angles. Their standard uniforms are more modest from the waist up, but feature high miniskirts and high stockings. Misaki appears in a full-frontal nudity scene very early in the series, but without any primary sexual characteristics drawn. Scenes in her quarters also sometimes tend to have her in various states of undress. The ending credits arguably go the furthest in terms of fan service. Set to the J-pop style song Pump up!, they feature Misaki in many outfits, almost all quite revealing: hotpants, sports safety equipment, and a halter top (and later, a halfshirt) bike shorts, tank top, and safety gear three different thong bikinis an apron a laced-up tube top, a miniskirt, and thigh-highs two full dresses a Gothic Lolita outfit with camisole, miniskirt, garter belt, thigh-highs, and high boots a Chinese Qipao dress ending very high four Japanese school uniforms, including a sailor fuku and a physical education uniform a transparent wet T-shirt, brassiere, and hotpants a showgirl outfit a waitress uniform Finally, each episode's credits end with a topless sunbathing scene. The camera is aimed high enough to cut off the image and prevent the need for additional censorship, but the bounce effect is used. The level of fan service in Divergence Eve has attracted much criticism from western viewers. Critics typically condemn the fan service first and foremost, before all other aspects of the show. Similarly, the few reviews that have praised the fan service tend to use it as their primary praise; some have called the plot mediocre, yet still recommend it due to the visuals.
