People, ECCHI doesn't always mean CRAP, so stop hating. Or better yet, PEOPLE, DO NOT GENERALIZE.

So every forum I go to... this has always been the case...

I hate it when they always compare Ecchi to crap most of the time. They're complaining to how shallow and too perverted ecchi anime are when all they watch are some boring shounen anime, or worse, SHOUJO.

And this is coming from a girl, I'm not a big fan of ecchi, but I do love some ecchi titles.



My point is, you can hate any ecchi title you want, but please, do not generalize. Some ecchi titles are actually good.

This post goes for shoujo and shounen as well. (lol this is not contradictory to my first sentence)

For the boys, not all shoujo anime are shallow, cutesy and boring.
For the girls, not all shounen anime are repetitive and don't have good storylines.
And for the serious watchers out there, not all ecchi anime are about fanservice and sex only.


If you really want to enjoy anime, then you need to be open-minded. There are a lot of good anime out there, and you're just isolating yourself with either one of these genres. *sigh*
======

I want to hear people's opinions about this. Some might say shoujo are initially intended for the girls so boys shouldn't be watching it. Same goes for shounen and ecchi being intended for the guys. Well if that's the case, THEN STOP BASHING EACH GENRE LIKE THIS IS SOME KIND OF WAR.

Everyone who likes all 3 genres say AYE! lololol

Mods, if you find this thread pointless/inappropriate then you may lock it.

quite well said, if the story is good who cares if its ecchi or not. though ecchi anime are usually targeted towards men is there or are there ecchi anime targeted towards women?

well lesbians somewhat count but i think anime with guys that look like girls "traps" or baka no test is the only I can think off the top of my head. Boku no pico might be another one but..... I will not go any further there.

Just an opinion on Elfen Lied and Gantz:

Elfen Lied is actually a decent series in my opinion; it's just that tragedy with ecchi elements happens to be a real bad taste. I found most ecchi scenes within the series to be unnecessary and detrimental.

Gantz is one of the best seinen action series there is hands down. It lacks much character development early on, but it does have its moments later onwards. The only problem is that it's on a borderline between hentai and ecchi, more leaning towards the hentai zone (if you've read the manga you should know what I'm talking about). Having a Ms Fanservice who does almost NOTHING but that purpose doesn't really help either.

I agree.

Slightly unrelated: One of favorite ecchi anime is Kiddy Grade, and it's one of the best works I've seen in a long time.

'I take it a few steps further! I have seen some great stories come from Hantai anime that me and my girlfriend love. '

I have also seen good shounen, such as one piece, that makes up for the large amounts of crappy ones, Bleach/Naruto.

As for Ecchi I would not really count that as a genre, for a Mecha Genre can also be ecchi. So can Comedy, horror, mystery, romance, drama, slice of life can all also be ecchi. Ecchi really only means that there might be some more mature content, such as panty shots, or maby a bath seen.

'I get tired of today's kids and their low brow thinking that older animeeshun sucks compared to newer anime, or their mindless fad like attitude toward hating Dubs.
