Never forget Valley Girl Zero
A PSA from yours truly, Zero III.
"Hey there, how’s everybody feelin’? Greetings my friends, I am Zero the Third, the king of this kingdom!"
For the most part whenever something meant to be genuine fanservice shows up, it’s always something that can be skipped (ex. the bath scenes require certain items, the scene with Akane and Nidai (though that’s just “lol did you REALLY think they were doing the do?”)). Something like this is normally portrayed as gross, uncomfortable, and really destructive for the character in question (ex. Tsumiki), and in the few cases where it IS genuine it’s still seen via the guys acting like Peeping Toms, adding a layer of sarcasm to the event.
Which is why I’m doubting that the fanservice and sexualization in DR:AE is in any way intended to be genuine fanservice - DR’s shtick in regards to fanservice is to make the genuine stuff skippable, and the unskippable stuff is deconstructed to hell and back as the game says “See this? Yeah? This is gross, uncomfortable, and really unhealthy for the parties involved, and you’re gross for thinking this is okay”. There’s no reason for them to drop their sarcastic, deconstructive approach to the issue of fanservice now of all times.
Unfortunately, there’s still no way to be absolutely certain as to what DR:AE’s stance on this issue is since, again, the game is untranslated. While obviously the stuff involving Kotoko, Monaka, and Nagisa is portrayed as horrifying and wrong (as it should be), there’s still gross stuff that is still up in the air.
TL;DR The general pattern DR has had up to this point in which all fanservice is either brutally deconstructed or played as sarcastically as possible lends credit to the idea that the gross stuff in DR:AE is SUPPOSED to be gross and horrifying, but there is absolutely no way to be certain as to what is going on, what the context is, or how it’s being portrayed until it’s translated.

Oh and i drew a phi
There is this gorgeous (domestic) bunny who has been neglected and they are just hopping around the street, nibbling on the grass out the front of my house. They had a friend with them but now it is just the one rabbit because the other got run over. I have approached the rabbit but it seems terrified of humans. The neighbours who let the bunnies hop away have been confronted by other neighbours and they obviously don’t give a shit. Is it right for me to attempt to rescue and adopt this bub?
Of course! C:
