Well, of course people will say "Hentais have sex, ecchi doesnt"


What makes an anime ecchi and what makes an anime hentai at your concept?

If it was aired on TV it's not a hentai is one of the criteria that works ^^.

Hentai takes it all the way, ecchi will tease you around with it.

If it is really ecchi, you will see a lot of exposed skin and usually attractive women. You'll also see bras and panties, as well as some pretty sexual actions and implications.

If it is hentai, you will see full blown (pun intended) sex.

Sucking tits is not the same as having sex.

That's about it.

While Seikon no Qwaser did have boob sucking, there was no sex or exposed genitalia.

For example Yosuga no Sora is listed as Ecchi, but it's about sex all the way. For me it's just Ecchi isn't showing anything hardcore, Hentai does.

Ecchi is like the cinemax late night soft core porn. You might be able to see some skin, and some "sex" might happen, but you never actually see anything. Hentai you see it, it's right there. P in V.

Aki Sora is ecchi and the magic happens in that show.

Hentai is hardcore and shows genitalia, even if it may or may not be "censored".

Ecchi is a very broad term.

It can go from shows like High School DxD which are just boobs, or to shows like KissxSis which basically show everything short of P meeting V.

I highly doubt that. Maybe if it were a hentai series there would be one or two episodes without sex, but that seems unlikely.

ecchi is showing skin or "inappropriate" stuff while hentai is basically animated porn

Edit: Hentai is just flat-out sex, and ecchi is just a overrated genre. (yeah, bringng flames on purpose)

Hentai has penetration, it shows the male organ going into the female. Ecchi does not. Also Hentai scenes tend to be much longer and more frequent than scenes in ecchi.

Hentai = to jerk off to

Ecchi = Sometimes makes for a decent harem/comedy show

Hentai is porn. That's pretty much all you need to know.

Virgin Night is that hentai, only has one sex scene and it doesn't really show anything IIRC. It's all about the awkward night of two virgins.

Jeez... answered right on the opening post... I wonder if the replies before mine are any interesting..

Personally, I don't like hentai, but I like ecchi
sexual incest in nisomonogatari - no one bats an eye
romance incest in SAO - everyone loses their minds

The difference is that ecchi does not show the genitals (the vagina and the penis). Hentai does, it doesn't matter if there's sex scenes or not. There are plenty of shows with sex scenes that aren't ecchi.

Sometimes there are some occasions where they do show a penis but not like in hentai. It's usually censored in a strange way, rainbow beams Koe de Oshigoto IIRC or simply drawn in silhouette without detail. Many times usually for humor like in Katte ni Kaizou. Vibrators do not need to be censored but are in some shows such as Seitokai Yakuindomo but not censored in Girl's High.

Whether or not there is sticky white stuff does not matter. Aki Sora has plenty and Kagaku has a load of lactation, both are still ecchi.

Aki Sora, School Days, and Yosuga no Sora show and have sex. None of them are hentai.

Mnemosyne and Mardock Scramble have several sex scenes and aren't even ecchi genre.

I think more than half of Aki Sora is mindless sex scenes. Been a long time since I bothered to watch it.

Isn't the point of Aki-Sora is incest sex?

IIRC, the manga does develop into more than just incest but anyways, I was just responding to Mikenzb about more than half being all sex.
