Dumb question its just anime with sex, prudes need to get a life to hide it would do more harm than good. If they pull hentia off the selves our games and music will be next, then books, and who gets to make the choice of whats ok and whats not? It people with this type of one sided-ness that keeps the world from moving foward.

Ppl probably only think that because most hentai these days is about rape. I'd say personally about 70% of hentai is about rape or animals involved (Don't want to say it ) That's mostly the reason ppl see it as harmful. I personally don't because I think of it as a cartoon just like all anime or regular cartoons. Though I rarely watch hentai due to that kind of subject being popular.

Though I do wish Japan could steer away from those kinds of subjects but to each their own I guess.




Animals? I dont know what you are searching for and i dont care :P

Never seen animals involved in any hentai.

Srry I classify demons in the animal category as a whole so it appeared weird. When I was younger and searching up Hentai, that kinda stuff would appear a lot. Btw I wouldn't be suprised if I did see animals in Hentai. From what I see and hear Hentai has no boundaries on what's wrong so they go to some dark places sometimes. I stopped watching Hentai a long time ago though.

I assume when most people say "hentai" here they actually mean "hentai anime" (as opposed to hentai manga, doujinshi, or other static media).

That said, I can recall seeing at least one instance of bestiality in hentai anime, and given my limited exposure to it, there are likely a lot more. (You certainly wouldn't have any problem finding it in hentai print media).

the question is whether it is poison to the anime community...that has a very broad scope. if your talking about people who already watch anime, i can't think of it being poison, as they are able to enjoy anime while not watching hentai if they don't want to. its akin to people who watch Hollywood movies but might not necessarily watch porn, or a movie that has a sex scene which may make people enjoy the movie less/more. As far as people who don't watch anime and don't make any distinction between the genres, it could be a poison to the anime community in the sense that it may keep people from joining the anime community and that might be harmful in its own way. That said, hentai is still enjoyed by a lot of other people, myself included, and has its own place and benefits to the anime community.

to summarize, it may damage the overall popularity of the anime community/industry but has its own perks as well. it really comes down to the amount of potential revenue lost due to people judging anime to be the same as ecchi/hentai and the amount of revenue generated by people enjoying ecchi/hentai. If the former is greater, then yes it could be looked at as a poison, otherwise i can't really see any harm at all. personally people should just suck it up and take it for what it is. if you like it, woooohhooooo. if you dont, dont watch it. nobody is gonna force you so dont bitch about it.

I don't think so, but I do see where the argument comes from. Way back in the day, when anime was almost unknown (and if you were lucky, it got called Japanimation), the first few anime to get noticed by the mainstream and media were hentai. (Urotsukidoji, enter the stage.) There are still some people to this day that have the perception that all Japanese animation is porn, so I could see some people calling it a poison for that. Though, given the amount of stuff coming out that isn't, I think it's a good way of showing who actually knows what they're talking about. So no, it's not a poison anymore.
