This may be a stupid question to some people but i just want some clarification about these anime ratings. What is the difference between R- 17+ and R+. Shouldn't they mean the same thing or am i wrong? Does R - 17+ mean adult anime?

From what I understand...

R - 17+ is for violence/swearing/mature themes. It's not quite 18+.
R+ donotes nudity/sex. A show could get a R+ rating without violence or profanity, for example, if it did include nudity.
In other words, the nudity aspect is the deciding factor.

I think.

R - 17+ recommended (violence & profanity)
R+ - Mild Nudity (may also contain violence & profanity)
Rx - Hentai (extreme sexual content/nudity)

R 17+ - violence
R+ - sexual content mixed with violence, perhaps?

I see R and R-17 before, but haven't see R+ and R-17+. From my experience with R and R-17, R-17 is more restricted; nudity in movies with R-17 is more explicit.

R+ is anything with nipples. There are R+ anime I would let children watch, such as Ranma 1/2, but there are also certainly R-rated anime I wouldn't let kids watch that get the lower R rating because they don't have nipples, such as Higurashi.
