Beginners Guide to Ecchi

Now I’m guessing alot of anime fans probably don’t even know the phrase or word ecchi. I didn’t until bout 2 years ago lol. Though most of the people who read my other blog almost definately do know what it means lol.

As ecchi goes, this makes the cut, ne?

As ecchi goes, this makes the cut, ne?

Now ecchi is derived from the letter H, and the H is from hentai, in the west, as you probably know, hentai is commonly used to describe anime porn. But in reality it can mean pervert, naughty, lewd, even sex if its a noun, which I didn’t know lol. (Below the cut is an expansive beginners guide of terms and occurances in ecchi anime, so you know what to look for in an anime if you suspect some ecchi shenanigans lol)

As you also may know, H is a prefix to certain things, H-games, H-manga, etc etc. Tis like X rated stuff in the west I spose.

Though the meaning is interchangable, mostly its used for vaguely naughty content in anime, manga or games. Skimpy outfits, fanservice, stuff like that. Apparantly ecchi art is loosely comparible to pin up girls in girlie mags(is that what they’re called? Playboy and Maxim, that kinda thing.)

There are a number of common occurances in ecchi anime or manga, such as;

Clothing that mysteriously hangs onto every curve of the girl, stuck like glue to every bit of skin lol

Uniforms, ofc, men love uniforms, can’t see why they have the big attraction they do frankly, but to each their own lol. Costumes too, and random outfits like chinese dresses, which some guys go crazy for.

Giant boobs. Masamune lol. Which I really dont get, the boobs soooo big they’re just laughable… I mean REALLY? The ones that are completely unbelievable, I dont get the attraction one bit, taking funbags one step too far I thinks. The ones that are always perky are lolworthy too.

And ‘Marshmallow Hell’ a term I hadn’t heard of till today lol, when guys get smothered by breasts, like in Love Hina ofc, and many other harem anime. Reminds me of an ep of Ally McBeal lol, where a womans elderly husband was smothered by her chesticals in the night LOL.

Clothing thats ‘accidentally’ pulled or, or falls off, or as in Negima, blown off by a mega-sneeze lol. Classic lol.

Theres the obvious, such as fanservice, pantsu shots and cleavage.

Sukumizu are very popular, the tradtional school swimsuit. Super tight ofc, sometimes with additional cameltow, depends on the lewdness of the series in question really.

ENF is another term I’m unfamiliar with, apparantly means Embarrassed Nude Female lol. Which happens ALOT in Ken Akamatsu manga+anime versions.

Now this, is a very good example of ecchi.

Now this, is a very good example of ecchi.

An anime that comes to mind portraying literally everyone of the stereotypes is Kanokon. Tis the queen of lewd anime as far as I’ve concerned, without being actual ero anime. (Unlike Juden-chan and Queens Blade which do step into the ero-realm ALOT lol)

In the pic above, she hits alot of the ecchi-points, she’s wearing a costume, which is super-tight, clinging to her body, her boobs big and super perky, also standing to attention lol. The first pic shows some other points of ecchi lol. Now a few more pics for good measure.

    Hey meimi!. didn’t know you had another cool blog! Didn’t know that many girls were into this thing. thanks for the info- any recommendations you could give me?^^ I’m kinda new to this…

    • meimi132 Says:

      Your not a girl… lol. Well theres simple ecchi, and then theres very-almost-hentai, like Queens Blade or Juden-chan. Depends what kinda thing u want. Cutesy-ecchi stuff like Love Hina or Chobits, or slightly more raunchy like Mahoromatic or ‘This Ugly Yet Beautiful World’, with actual upper nudity. Well Chobits has some nudity…. but its tastefully done at least…
      I’m not into ecchi like boys are into ecchi though lol.
      New to anime in general or new to ecchi btw?

  2. Matt Says:

    haha.yup.I’ve watched anime for a few years now, but quite new to echi. I prefer the cuter stuff,unlike most guys. Just curious, mainly^^I’ll check chobits out.) 0.o shiney legs(top pic)
    (I’m the same Matt from dev art and your other blog btw^^)

  3. The Envoy Says:

    Don’t forget anime featuring loli-type characters.

    XP ecchi, definitely not my sort of thing. Thought I’d check out what you were doing on this blog though.

    Chobits, I love due to the kawaiiness and the romance and the fact it’s done by CLAMP. Ken Akamatsu’s work however…ugh, I’ve flicked through some of his manga and been forced to watch some of Love Hina and Negima by a girl mate of mine who is into ecchi.

    Mahoromatic, also read the first three volumes of and didn’t enjoy lol.

    To each their own though, I’m admittedly a BL fan girl so this isn’t likely my sort of thing.

    Still cool you’re making a blog about it for girls.

  5. Blowfish Says:

    I actually learned a thing or two.
    Now where can I order one Marshmallow Hell for take-away?

  6. Ninjovee Says:

    I also do not understand giant boobs. Especially ones that are probably in watermelon proportions that a girl can probably break her back or just become hunchbacked with the size of those. LOL.

    As for uniforms, there’s also a fair share of girls who like men suited up. LOL. Although I am unsure as to why they have the interest.

    I actually learned a thing or two in this entry :3c

    looking forward to the other entries!
