Hentai= A category under anime. However, the majority of hentai is douijin artwork or stills. Therefore, hentai is mostly fan-art. But, there still is hentai anime. Just think of hentai as normal programming equivalent of porn.

Hentai is a genre among animes. but I wouldn't say "hentai is anime", because then it would feel like hentai manga doesnt exist =D

anyway, hentai comes from hen = weird and tai=attitude and is a common word in the japanese language to describe pervetedness so anything that is erotic could be called hentai, anime, manga, live action or wathever you like.

thing is, regular japanese porn is more often called AV (adult video) rather than hentai videos and given the high ammounts of pornographic animation produced in japan, calling hentai animation simply "hentai" became the norm. notice also that people don't usually call pornographic games as hentai games, but rather ero-games (at least nowadays). but everything just means the same thing.

so yes, hentai is anime, but isnt limited to anime.

I don't think it brings shame.

First of all, not all hentai are bad. Not all of them have a terrible plot and disgusting animation, although i'd aggree that's what you get 99% of the time.

Secondly, we should not judge taste. We can argue about how terrible a show may be in matters of production quality and stuff like that, but saying what's right or wrong to be shown is a leap into an unending discussion and of no fair solution.

I find it more disgusting to see a sub-character miraculously being revived in the show just so that he can give that help the main character was so in need of to kill the final boss, than to see a guy having explicit sex with a cat-eared girl.

What you may have a problem with is the sexist and many times disturbing content of the hentai. Female subjugation and children being sexually exploited is a common feature of hentai, and one has to wonder whether that's ok. I believe manga and anime are a form of expression that should know no constraints, or at least not enough to hinder the creative mind and the will to communicate with others in the form of art. Still, I wouldn't want people to like many of the things being represented in hentai.

Nevertheless, one thing remains true... if hentai has survived and evolved, and so overwhelmingly expanded from a small cult into a worldwide matter, then it should not bring shame to the asians. after all, hentai exists because it is demanded. true, not all asians like hentai. but many do, and that's the reason hentai exists, and so how could it shame the asians if many of them just like hentai? while there are asians who condemn hentai and those who just love it, the one undeniable fact is that we cannot ignore that those who make, enjoy and "use" hentai are part of the "asians" you mentioned, it is a characteristic of the asian people to have a few that like that kind of show. What you are talking about is not about what asians "are", but what you think they "should" be...
