just like regular porn, hentai is fantasy, so why all the commotion over anime basically with naked characters? There are worse things to worry about in this world than this, if people get their kicks off this - fine, if not - fine. That's at least my take, but I guess it could be touchy for some.

I personally think Hentai is a okey thing. You know not like to be seen the eyes of kids, but still interesting in learning a few things. Like when your lovely wife is making fake noises in bed.

I’m going to define “hentai” as anime with a pornographic intent. For the record, Hentai can be defined in allot of different ways.

I rarely watch hentai, but I do indulge on occasion. Usually, I prefer mild ecchi (Like Mahoraba and Midori No Hibi) since I find the storylines amusing and the characters interesting (and I do enjoy the fan service as well). Very rarely do I ever actually watch a legitimate Hentai (of the 1564 anime episode I own in one form another only 2 are hentai), though I did pick up some doujinshi at a con a few years ago (mainly because of the artists).

After several years in the military being surrounded by a massive sausage fest of guys from all backgrounds, I can assure everyone here that regular live action porn is normal for guys to watch, regardless of whether you are sexually active, inactive, or even married. In fact, finding a guy who thinks they are above porn is exceptionally rare (typically they're religious). Occasionally, you'll find a guy not interested in it, but they're certainly the exception.

Now hentai is not normal for your average guy to be in, and fanboys tend to be torn on it. I find it amusing that fangirls don't seem to have any problem with Yaoi (and are infamous for embracing it), but as evidenced in this thread, allot of guys refuse to associate with hentai for one reason or another. I think they view it as a sign of weakness, immaturity, or sexual inadequacy. Personally, I think it’s all just lines being interpreted by the brain (a pixel is a pixel, regardless of whether it is a photograph or a drawing). I think people who exclusively watch hentai may have some issues confronting reality, but most watch both live action and hentai.

In the end, is there really that significant a difference between regular porn and hentai? They’re really all just sexual fantasy, be “how will I ever pay for this pizza” to your random cliché harem anime setup. I don’t think there is anything wrong with indulging in fantasy as long as you keep your priorities straight and don’t view it as a substitute for a relationship.

And there is quite a bit of hentai that has merit outside of erotic art implications. I’d encourage any open minded Evangelion fan over 18 to check out the Re-Take doujinshi. It picks up where the series left and keeps going exploring one possible path. Its storytelling is done very much in the style of the series and the art is a near dead on match for the Eva manga. Here is a music video someone made from the doujin (with a few relevant scenes from the anime tossed in).

I’m an outspoken fan of Air, Kanon, and Kiminozo which are anime all based on ero-games. I think the stories and characters can be just as good (and often better) in that of non-H anime. In fact, sometimes greater attention is given to character development in some anime based on ero-games to illicit a more emotional response from the player/user. It’s all just a story regardless of whether it is told in words, film, or drawings.

maybe sometimes i'd watch it just for the hell of it, but i don't like it as much as some of my friends do

and by the way, hentai is actually the term for perverted
the proper word is "jū hachi kin", "ecchi/H anime", "eroanime" or "seinen"
you can thank wikipedia for that

Hentai is just animated porn basically. I don't care if you watch it, but don't let me catch you wacking off with it.

I don't normally post here but any thread on hentai is always worth a good laugh when the majority of people bashing it aren't legally supposed to be looking at that stuff anyway. That or their arguments are just pathetic "its gross", so what do you think about real porn? That's actually a lot more gross because when you think about it, sex really isn't that pretty to watch. Hentai is less "icky" in that way because it is always drawn as a perfect ideal.

In the end all porn is fantasy.

I don't like hentai anime that much myself but doujinshi are good. I find myself more interested in the words than the pictures and often skip pages with no text. I watch ecchi because its bloody hilarious (midori no hibi being the classic example, shame it isn't on here any more)

Note that I have ignored all fetish hentai as far as my points about "icky" goes because there is real fetish porn that is just as strange. Guro vs scat: which is worse?
