Hentai, Ecchi and Fanservice.... where do you draw the line?

Just where exactly do you draw the line when you see a peice and classify it as Hentai, Ecchi or Fanservice? Let's go ahead and lay down the rules as to which kind can be posted without offending people.

I honestly dont mind seeing naked pictures though I'm not sure where to draw the line when it is actually either disturbing or offensive to other people.There's a few posts around here that are of this nature which i believe deserved an audience... but due to the content has to be censored or thrown completely into the trash bin.

So how bout it? let's talk. ^_^

I dont mind naked pics too .... I guess it's when sexual act is expressed throught the pic ... (eg: position really ettchi... or seeing genital parts) I would consider this for light hentai ... well if it's more then you know clearly it is .... I'm not offended by this .. just not browsing hentai website ... anyways it's full of crap .... I prefer cute and romantic scene .... shojo ... and Shonen ai ;;;
Maybe some pp would consider hentai when you saw for example a girl in bra and panties ... I dont mind it's normal in animes ... when you watch anime it's normal to see that .... I dont see why pics like this wouldnt be normal ...

If you're certain its H, don't post it; if you're uncertain it's H, do post it but say you're not certain.
If it's there the next day, it isn't H; if it is gone, then it is H.

Personally I don't mind seeing naked pics, I draw the line when it's obviously it's made to be hentai or ecchi (that'd mean that gential parts're showing or there's sexual act in it).
I think there'll always be fighting 'bout the definition of hentai - some'll say it's at the sight of panties, some say it ain't before there's a tentacle monster in it .

Naked piccies symbolize purity an' the cleanliness of the person's will/soul/etc. ^^; an' it plays an' important part in the history of anime/manga....so why's that considered hentai? *bwink* I dun know...maybe little kids get nosebleeds from lookin' at that schtuff...@@;; *kofkoff* anyhoo, when there's sexual involvement, it should be rated NC-17 or Heavy H an' a definate no no. Well...*bwinkbwink* those have always been my views....not that I have many morals anyway...^^;; heehee

.......Line?


Seriously, I don't really mind anything as long as there's no tentacles or very much penis in it.

Agreed. As long as the pic does not imply the act of sex.

I use a special meter that guages whether the pic is a fan service, ecchi or outright perverted. I'm not gonna discuss how that instrument works though. Ahem.

Anything that I find to be of an offensive nature, that is anime and involves nudity to some extent, I consider to be hentai,



All in all I cant say I really mind seeing the stuff, as long as age limits are abound. Tho what age that is can be debated I guess, after all common anime like Eva even portrays youths as young as 14 in sexual positions.

It's interesting that most people find nudity okay as long as not much 'genitalia' is shown, which means that you could post a picture of a woman standing upright totally naked, yet have to show a man in the same position with a towel around his waist
A totally naked women is generally considered 'tasteful nudity', yet an equally naked man is automatically distasteful. Kind of weird.

Anyway, I agree with the consensus that as long as there isn't an overt sex act being portrayed and the sex-specific characteristics aren't overly emphasized, it's fine. That's probably still a lot of gray area though.....like what does 'overly emphasized' mean?

Since logic is failing, we will have to rely on Foxxe and his mysterious 'Special gauge'

to be honest i don't personally mind neither ecchi nor hentai, but i know there are people that get offended by it and won't post any drawings of that sort, i think full nudity is ok, as long as there is no sexual act or positions, but each person have his/hers own definition of what's sexual and what's not, so it's not that easy to say..
