Reception & Legacy

Parody of this scene in The World God Only Knows II episode 12.

This scene was very infamous at the time for going out of it's way to re-animate a scene and add gratuitous nudity. There were stories of fans bringing cameras into the theaters to take pictures when this scene came on. This bath scene was often credited as being one of the earliest moments in anime history to spawn "Otake Culture" and has even been said by some to be "The scene that was responsible for hentai".

In The World God Only Knows II episode 12, there is an entire parody segment of the final story arc of Mobile Suit Gundam with every character having Keima Katsuragi's face with this movie versions of the Sayla Mass Bath scene being one of the moments parodied with her comedically having Keima's face instead just like all the other characters.

On an official Gundam.info poll posted in December 2009 for best Gundam bath scenes, this scene received third place with 9.25% votes. An official figure of Sayla was made referencing this scene where she is wearing a White Towel while holding the Pink Towel that was just taken off her head. In the game Knight Gundam Puzzle Heroes, You can obtain a card which is a chibi parody of this scene but Sayla is taking a Bubble Bath in a Clawfoot Bathtub instead.

Original Anime Differences
