Just a while back, I finally received my the visual novel "The Fruit Of Grisaia". I was intrigued by the first episodes of the anime and I thought it was perhaps more worth it to read the novel as it was originally intended. So I decided to become a backer to the kickstarter campaign and chosed the unrated version.

I'm currently playing through Amane's route and it's pretty heavy on the sex scenes. It's kind of uncomfortable since, I've now given up on porn but a thought did occur to me. What if visual novel were adapted both into anime and hentai? We would then have a anime version that would have passable ratings for day time television and then seperate hentai version that covers the sex scenes that were omitted. What is your thought on this?

All of the visual novels I've played omitted the sex scenes, so I've seen the universe that you speak of, and it's sad.

I doubt it will happen. And to my knowledge we haven't had a hentai version of a VN which was given an anime adaptation ( I mean there are hentai of VN, but most of those VN tend to be only sex scenes with no real story).

And if we did it would only be a 1-2 ova, with some other studio doing the animation and such.

NO ! Just fucking no ! I don't care if a censored one is created has long has uncensored version is made available.

There are lot of them that are really good. It just depend in the hentai season. Some months is just sex other times there a real story behind it.

On one hand I can see your point and have sympathy with your position. (2d women don't do much for me to be honest.) But on the other hand I can see where COST FACTORS would make that if not impossible, but very difficult to carry out. It would be simpler to make a better rating system and, for games, an option to turn off sexual content. One other factor that makes this a difficult item is cultural differences. What is okay in one country might not be another. For example Japan does not have the breast taboo like the US does.

The better question is:

Why is no one adapting all my Yuri VN's into anime/hentai?

I'm guessing you didn't watch the Grisaia Specials then. Those were pretty close to being Hen- ... ehm, Erotic Anime. That's not a rare thing by the way, they often leave the spicier content for the OVA's and Specials, gotta sell those Blu-ray's after all

Hmm, that's actually a pretty complex topic, for which we already have another thread. But to make it short: No, I don't think so, at least not generally speaking as there are of course cases where it's for the better when they are, due to multiple reasons (improvement through adaptation).

It's an interesting idea, but here's the counterpoint that springs to my mind immediately: do we need to expend the extra money and effort developing and marketing a version of the adaptation with sex scenes included when we already have the visual novel to fulfill that demand? VNs frequently feature voiceovers and partial animation these days (particularly the sex scenes), so while an anime adaptation would give life to the parts that were just text, still images, and maybe voiceovers we wouldn't necessarily add all that much to what we already have if we included the sex scenes in one version. I might see an argument for a particularly well-beloved title which didn't have animated and voiced sex scenes, but beyond that a separate hentai version doesn't really do anything useful.

There are a few.

Umm.. Green Green for example. The TV series is pretty tame, but there are a few OVAs that storywise come after the tv series but are quite pornographic. Princess Lover has both a tame tv series and a pornographic OVA series. Magical Kanan has both. There are a few more examples floating in the back of my mind but I can't bring them forth lol.

a good portion of harem shows are adaptations of visual novels, I think that broadcast stations are only willing to put up the money if they are not sexually explicit and can be shown to a wider audience thus they omit those scenes. I can only think of a few adaptations that had a love scene or two that were fairly tame but not hentai like rumbling hearts and white album 2

i think Princess Lover is the only VN that i've seen get both an anime and a hentai adaptation.

There was a Mahou Shoujo one. I actually saw the TV series of it first so I was surprised to find out that it was actually a readaptation of an erotic OVA series.

It was called Magical Kanan. It was about this magician who gets turned into a mascot stuffed animal and sent to earth. He finds a girl and makes her into a magical girl. They fight things. It's been a long time since I have seen it.

I do remember though that in the erotic version, it's primarily him having sex with girls in his human form, in VN fashion. If I remember correctly, if he gets a kiss in stuffed animal form, it transforms the girl into a magical girl and him temporarily back into his wizard form.
