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

People should not generalize anime.
Its like being racist. There is no real reason to dislike ecchi anime just because it is perverted.
People who feel uncomfortable with perverted things should just stay away from it and not bash it because you don't like it.

Amen to this thread. If you check out my profile, i have some decent ecchi anime favorited. I dont think the best ecchi anime are on CR though, they need someone who actually LIKES ecchi anime picking the good ones for them. They also need to have a section for it so that the kiddies can be parental guided. I hope the higher ups in CR read this...

I do draw the line on SOME Harem + Ecchi though, thats just too much like hentai unless they do it right!

I love ecchi-type anime with lots of fanservice or action (ex. Queen's Blade). Well-developed stories makes me sleepy. Great anime/manga makes you think "interesting, I wonder how this controversy will resolve?" , but instead I rather watch anime that makes me think "sweet, when's the next panty shot?"

Aye Aye Aye! One of the best threads I have ever seen.

Look, people who honestly would dislike an anime due to ecchi....well....I just cant agree with them. If that somehow lights your hate fire....then....your HOPELESS. To have a 100% chance to enjoy all types of anime...you NEED to be open-minded. Plus ecchi is more or less a sub genre....and what I mean is that...any anime of any genre could have an ecchi moment at any given time. I dont even see how a panty shot could even make someone think lowly of an anime....to me it should either increase...or just keep the likeness the same.

I wish I could have put more in what I posted but. Cant think of more at the moment. So anyways, people dont generalize that an anime is going to be bad just by it being ecchi...I mean seriously...some of the best animes in each genre have ecchi. Take Seto No Hanayome for example, that anime could be considered the funniest comedy in the history of anime, (I put it right behind Gintama...but before I watched Gintama...that was first). And guess what...it has a TON of ecchi scenes.

And heres another example of why ecchi shouldnt be considered in a disliked fashion. Picture this. A female character gets punched by some enemy...she goes flying...and hits the ground. Now her skirt COULD be flipped up to show the panty shot...or it could be kept down. REGARDLESS of whether the skirt was flipped up or down....she still woulda had been punched and hit the ground. What im saying is...the ecchi in that particular scene was not the reason that scene was implemented....it was the punching and the falling down that was the reason for the scene and the ecchi just came along with it.

So yea, great forum topic Chrome_Mist

Edit: Just want to throw this out there but if anyone hates MOE....>:O

I watch anything and everything. Genre doesn't matter as long as it's good. By the way in my opinion is that the Rosario + vampire anime is a disgrace to the manga as they have warped the mangas story which was damn good with around 25 mins of chu and pantsu. If I listed all the anime series I have watched it go above 100 and al the manga series I've read it go far above 1000. Also I've mever really seen a bad shoujo so far like Skip Beat, Lovely complex(Best shoujo), Vampire Knight. Also if you were a series anime fan then you'd not give a crap about fan service. It's also not about growing up and saying it's only fan service just bear with it. Fan service is perverted, that's why it's amazing and can also be enjoyable after all if it was real people wouldn't be complaining.

Good Thread!

I've always classified ecchi and fanservice as two separate things myself. For example, Elfin Lied to me was a drama with fanserv in it, but Rosario + Vampire is a pure candy so it would fall under ecchi since the plot is almost secondary to the fanservice.

Fanserv has been around forever and a day and works its way into lots of anime, Eva for example was a "serious" title but in the bumpers Misato always promised some fanservice in the next epd.

In a lot of Ecchi-centric a good storyline is almost a "happy accident" (shout out to you PBS watchers) where you go into it with nothing but the basest of intentions but come out of it surprised that it was something enjoyable aside from the eye candy. But that is always subject to personal opinion. My wife and I loved the actual story that showed up in Queen's Blade, conversely she told me if I ever made her watch Eiken-Club again she would serve me with papers LOL

Love it or hate it, its not going anywhere so if you don't like it, keep your hate to yourself cause we all know your just looking for attention anyway (and your probably watching worse with the lights out and the door closed)

How is disliking anime being racist? You're using this word out of context.

I don't care for most of the ecchi titles that come out today, and to be honest that's my business. I've found them to be so over-glorified with fanservice, that the actual plot is ignored. Queen's Blade is good, and so are a couple of other titles I've seen, but if the anime only focuses on those ecchi moments and nothing else, than it's not worth watching.

I'm wary of any labels. Some anime labeled ecchi have indeed been not to my taste. Some anime that cannot be labeled echhi or h or any other perjorative are also unenjoyable (to me).

That said I've often found that 'echiness' is a distraction and detriment to what otherwise would be a much better anime.


but it's like the famous scotsman said:

"It's a good thing we don't all like the same things. Think of what a haggis shortage there would be."

"Not worth watching"???
What do you mean not worth watching? It may not be worth watching for you, but the thing is there are hundreds of thousands of people out there who like perverted stuff and only watch anime for perverted things.
Many people may not understand them (neither do I), but to look badly of people who enjoy these things and think there is something wrong with that is wrong.
I'm not saying that you personally think the way I stated, however there are many people who do.
I am just pointing out that if people don't try to understand each other then people start to discriminate people.
My point about "like being racist" meant to show discrimination of themes where perverted things are seen badly or worthless when there are many people who enjoy watching them and even make a living out of it to support a family or just lives.
People can think however they want about perverted anime, however mocking people who watch them just because they don't like it is a similar ideology that goes into racism.
I will repeat again, I do not know if you think the way I stated, but there are people out there who do and some people do get hurt by that.

First off, you are right, ecchi doesn't equal crap.

Ecchi does equal stuff that annoys me.

I've watched and read a ton of anime and manga. None of it would have lost anything if they hadn't put in the fanservice and ecchi stuff. In fact, most would have been improved.

In my experience, the fanservice/ecchi scenes always take the focus off of the characters/plots and focuses me on when the next fanservice/ecchi scene is going to show. Or just annoys me and lessens my immersion in the story.

My top ten completed anime:


Last Exile
Bleach - Memories of Nobody
Toaru Majutsu no Index
D.Gray-man
Kekkaishi
Howl's Moving Castle
Xam'd: Lost Memories
Sora wo Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai
Sora no Woto
Fullmetal Alchemist

If you seen them, then you know that they have little to zero fanservice or ecchi scenes. And they've lost nothing.

Plus, I personally believe that most fanservice and ecchi objectifies women. Where would you rather have a guys eyes looking? Your face, or your chest?

So, the original post is right in that there's no point in saying that any ecchi show is bad. But for some people, ecchi does mean that the show is worse for them, than it would be if it wasn't ecchi.

I think this anime would be a good test to see whether people hate ecchi or dont

Amaenaideyo and Amaenaideyo Katsu

This here is an anime that is basically pure ecchi...tho it attempts at having some kind of plot.

I personally LOVE this series. But yea...use that anime as a tester to see if you can take ecchi anime or not...or something along those lines
