Nope, you're just one of a crowd. If people didn't like that kind of thing, it wouldn't sell. Women are just as perverted as men, if not more. We just lie about it more. Just remember that ecchi (and hentai) is a caricature of sexual interactions, and don't expect your real life to be anything like what you see on tv.

Nothing wrong with that. I enjoy it, but its not masturbating material if thats what your wondering. Seeing a boob falling out of a dress or a girl losing her towel just spices up the anime a little from time to time.

I don't see anything wrong with watching ecchi anime but the thing that would concern me is your age. You're old enough to be my child and as a parent what you are watching and doing on the internet would be one of my top priorities. Also at 14 there would be no way that I would let a child watch Kissxsis.

I think the people you need to be asking this question to is your parents/guardians and let them decide what is suitable and what isn't for you to watch.

Everything in moderation, I say. I try to have a healthy diet of all genres, although I do like a good ecchi.

Do you also run track, are a model, and have a love/hate relationship with your older brother?

If you like kodomo no jikan I would recommend Astarotte's Toy if you haven't already seen it. It is a good anime and i think it would appeal to your interests.

I like the ecchi genre, though i tend not to enjoy animes where that's the only thing to it. Growing up, i think a lot of us get obssessed with different things, some people more then others. In my opinion, i don't see anything wrong with it, you could be obssessed with other things or doing other things that would be far more harmful then simply enjoying ecchi anime, so unless it's interferring with your studies or daily life in some way, there's nothing wrong with it

It doesn't interfere with my life, and I'm easily able to differentiate fantasy and real life, so I'm okay on that.

Kissxsis was pretty bleh, so I regret that.

I'm just going to try to put this into a relate-able perspective,

I work with middle school kids. I've seen pregnancy, drug and alcohol use, complete apathy, abuse(giving and receiving), and any other number of horrible things you could expect to find in society in general , all in 13-15 year olds.

Your activity and interests are not by themselves self destructive like many of those above. There was also a preface about not liking loli-hentai, meaning you have boundaries for yourself. This means you've thought this through (a good sign). If you asked a general person, they would probably think it weird, but to anyone who has an understanding of the topics and shows you're talking about, you are going to be just fine. About the only possible argument against what you do would be "gateway" or "slippery slope" arguments, which may or may not have any actual evidence to refute or support it.

About the only question I can think of that you might want to be asking is whether or not you find it acceptable for the general population to find you weird while any section of fandom sees you as normal. That is just going to come down to an Identity issue.

If you are that worried about something in particular, try to research it. Find some informed people to read about or talk to. Odds are if there is a specific issue you are afraid of, there is something out there to help you. Don't forget to check your sources, since a lot of people will just throw out ideas they know nothing about, kind of like I'm doing.

Is it weird for a 14 year old to like ecchi? I'd have to say no since that is around the age where you start to notice certain "things". As long as you can distinguish that what happens in those are works of fiction you are all set. I mean out of all the other things you could be doing at that age having a slight "fetish" with ecchi is by far not so bad. In fact if I had kids I'd rather them watch a few shows that are ecchi rather than all that crap kids programing they have on tv now a days with that Miley Cyrus crap and things like that. I wouldn't worry about it and just enjoy what you enjoy and don't look to much into it at this point. Now if at some point you find yourself drawing ecchi on your walls and chanting mantras around ecchi I'd take a little concern.
