In ecchi anime, we have a lot of fan service, and the translation for ecchi may be pervert or sex. In Primetime shows like Gossip Girl and Grey's anatomy, it is mostly about sex.

But in ecchi anime, there is no sexual activity going on. Instead, there are references. Shots of the chest and below the waist.

When someone asks me if I like ecchi anime, I respond by if it is wrong, then it is no worse than True Blood.

Aren't primetime shows encourage its younger audience to take sexual intercourse?
But then again, ecchi anime does entice people.

...Never thought about it that way.

well i don't think they are really prime time shows, most anime comes on "ecchi ones' around the 10pm-3am slot in japan so it's really hard to tell.

No offensive but this topic sounds more like a excuse to justify why you watch ecchi. If people don't have the balls to admit they like ecchi, just don't say anything to begin with.

No matter which perspective you look at it sex appeal sells. Remember a TRUE businessman only cares if their product sells, they don't care if its bad or good.

As much as I'm not a fan of ecchi, this is an unfortunate truth that plagues the a number of current anime industry.

to be fair I am a fan of ecchi and so forth but what is bothering me is the cookie cutter characters as of late.

Haha, smart thinking. I don't think so, ecchi anime's don't always promote "sex"
