When something becomes "ecchi" isn't really a hard and fast rule anyway. There is a spectrum of titillating content and fan service, that ranges from mildly naughty camera angles to out-right sex (which is sometimes depicted even in non-h content.

At the end of the day, Yosouga no Sora has more sexual content than Bakemonogatari, which has more sexual content than A Certain Magical Index, which has more sexual content than Toradora, which has more sexual content (thank God) than Bunny Drop. Where someone draws the line and says "this show is ecchi--that show isn't" is pretty arbitrary anyway. So I'm not sure what the point is in flagging shows that have nudity but only show barbie-doll anatomy (that is, everything is smooth, hairless, and rounded).

As to why shows do the barbie-doll anatomy in the first place: I'd guess it's a combination of stylistic choices, Japanese censorship and ratings laws (uncensored versions are still rated in Japan, at least if they are on Blue-Ray/DVD, and an R-18 rating can hurt sales), and marketing/publicity.


I love how you played it down to Bunny Drop. But my friend, you have activated my trap card!



and to make it worse. You know how the Usagi Drop manga ends well in the last chapter of KnJ.

You beat me to it, Bathroom. There are often times when we get artists / character designs who can draw semi-nudity until they are blue in the face, but who seem to have issues drawing actual nudity. It's really odd.

I would say their porn is what's really odd

But seriously, Japan.

If you're making a ecchi show the nipple and have the censored version on channels and the like and the dvd/br have exposure either that or why bother getting the uncensored if its not gonna show anything. Why censor in the first place then?


Rule 34 of the internet states that if it exists, there is porn of it. Ecchi anime rather not force themselves to a late-late night time-slot if they don't have to.

Anime is publicly aired on Japanese TV, and often, TV versions require censorship, even if they are shown after a certain hour. Don't want to be complained to by parents for exposing their child to *gasp* anatomy! Blood is usually censored to a lesser extent than female body parts, but censorship is common both ways.

If the station gets slapped with counts of "exposure" or something of the like their rep is essentially down the crapper.

Yeah.

Personally I would have liked it a lot better if he hooked up with the female teacher. I forget her name though. She had some curves, man.

Meh if they are happy, who cares. She could have done much worse even with someone her age.

it seems that they just slap the ecchi tag on some animes that dont really need the tag. but i do agree with the different levels of ecchi id have to also say that highschool dxd is leaning towards the extreme scale. cant really give an example of a mild one since i dont really watch too much ecchi

If it doesn't actually show anything, then technically you cant even really call it an ecchi show?

Most people would label a show filled with panty shots and bouncing (but clad) breasts as ecchi.
