People probably either don't watch it or don't rate on strictly enjoyment in which case they fall short in terms of story, characters, animation, music and other things.

As for me I rate hentai on enjoyment, unfortunately there isn't much out there that's all that good since 95% of it is garbage filled with NTR, rape, blackmail, and other fetishes I'm not into.

Most people rarely watch a full episode of hentai. They just fap/schlick to juicy bits and that's it.

I hate them accordingly to my rate system, which is "enjoyment"

I only watched 2 hentais, the first one I gave 7, and the second I gave 1.

Because most people don't like to mix their fap material with regular anime, because the criteria to rate the two are very different.
And also because most people don't care about hentai enough to organize them into a list and meticulously judge and rate them. It's fucking porn.

Because MAL is a largely Christian community and our users do not stain their eyes and minds with pornographic material that interferes with their relationship with Jesus Christ.


forgot this is a good christian website and that the only people who add hentai to there list are dirty heathens who have lost touch with our lord and savior Jesus Christ.

hentai is porn mmkay. and dont sprout some BS "uhh you have TL-R and other ecchi on your list" stfu hentai is not the same with ecchi. there's an invisible line separating them and only fine, refined gentlemen like my self can distinguish them.

I mostly wonder what the desire to log pornographic material is lol. Normally, I find I like to log anime to show my taste to my friends is somebody asks or if I want recommendations. Or sometimes for me to look through my list to give someone a recommendation.

"Hey guys, I really liked this video of a girl getting sexed up by some ogre. Can I get some recommendations for similar anime?"

Nah, no thanks.

For me its a way to remember the names of them so if I want to watch them again I can find the names if I don't remember.

As much as I say "I finish what I started" when it comes to anime (and I know Hentai is also anime duh), I never finish Hentai because you know.....you get the idea.

Garbage reasoning for someone that has watched 100+ days of anime. What meaning does it have to log an anime you didn't finish or one you rated poorly?

Most of the time hentai is used for a temporarily pleasure which they may or may not regret..
With anime you can actually see the beautiful art and true features that you wouldn't see in hentai. That's what I think anyhow.


What the hell is the point of bringing up regret and hentai? Your bias is clear. There has been (subjectively)beautiful art in hentai just like there has been (subjectively)shit art in anime so your other point doesn't make any sense.

When I say meaningful, I mean something the watcher finds meaningful. I was simply pointing out the fact that lot's of people might find hentai a waste of time compared to anime. Of course that is well understood due to what hentai is.

I may be bias but i'm not wrong about the difference in anime and hentai. People have different reasoning for watching the two. Regret, art, scenery, voices and the focus point. All of it has to be taken into consideration. The most obvious point is because it's hentai. Yes just because it's hentai is enough of a reason to be less popular than anime.


Yes, I get that the watcher finds meaning in whatever anime; but you can't approach that hentai has no meaning because it's hentai. You are wrong about the differences; the only objective difference between the two is sex. Whatever meaning you find in that only reflects yourself.

And yes, a porno movie will be less popular than a regular movie so there's pretty much only that.

This. Also to log all the bad shit in case you forget what it was called, to prevent watching it again and avoiding any awful sequels to it.

People don't watch it for the plot and it's usually just skimming through parts. So it's not worth noting down. Also a large fandom base of anime is female and we don't really care about hentai that much.

Out of curiosity, why? Like compared to the most popular anime has like 1.3 millions users and the most popular hentai has like 70k

Because unlike you, people have guilty and shame.

What makes it so obvious? The lack of plot? Or the fucking? Is fucking not popular? But my hentai doesn't need plot but of course it has because the reason why the characters are fucking is plot. That being good or bad is up to the audience, not just you. But you imply only anime has plot and progression and art and meaning, I don't think so. I say many series lack all that meaning you keep bringing up, but shit like Highschool DxD and To Love-ru remain extremely popular. You are not wrong that hentai will never be more popular, but I don't agree with your reasons. The only thing that is obvious here is your disdain for porn, which is fine, but don't cover it up with the nonsense about plot and meaning.

I have seen some hentai that the story and art were far better then some anime I have watched. I find that fact funny

I mean depends how long it is with how many ep. Saw this one hentai that was 16 mins but 4 eps that shit was interesting and ended up just watching it regularly then there are some that are over 30 to 60 mins long those end up having good plots to.

I log my hentai, but I'd imagine most people don't.
It can be embarrassing, but I don't really give a fuck about being embarrassed, lol.
That being said, I honestly don't watch very much of it.

I don't add the hentai I watch and I assume there are other people like that so there's one factor.
literally this, unless I run blindly into some gay shit that killed my boner, most hentai if added would be 10/10.

its the same as when the fags at google release their annual list of most searched crap and theres no porn in it. they just skip it to pg13

I don't bother adding hentai because I'd rather keep my entertainment properly segmented. Same way I don't include live-action pornography for consideration when discussing live-action TV and films.

And OT regarding the scores, one aspect would be snobbishness and non-inclusivity, for sure, but let's not kid ourselves: hentai has terrible production value.
Short of some of the highest profile franchises, hentai has historically been poorly animated, with very few drawn keyframes, lots of limited animation, almost non-existent storyboarding. The audio production is no better; audio syncing isn't really a thing, and voice acting is... Let's just say not great, especially in English dubs lol. Oh, that's not even touching on the story. Yikes.
Honestly speaking, most hentai on this site are scored exactly like they should be if they were non-adult anime, if not scored even a little too high due to connoisseurs of the medium.

Eeeh, maybe we just have different standards... Or the content you've seen is too engaging for a critical eye ;)
