What is Ecchi? [Definition, Meaning]

When you read the word ecchi, what do you imagine? Close your eyes a second. Think about it. Ok, what did you see?

Stripped panties? Nudity? Boobs?

Edgy and erotic, ecchi is a distinct thematic element in anime that toes the delicate line between the obscenity and propriety, dipping slightly in smut, while also maintaining a demure veil of restraint. For the decriers of anime, ecchi is possibly one of their main points of contention, associating its titillating content with hentai. Due to its perceived connection to the pornographic, understanding what ecchi is and does can be confusing. With hopes stripping away the misunderstanding, we will lightly probe the history of ecchi and its current usage before looking at it in action within anime.

Ecchi is big bouncing boobs, topless, panties, sexual content in an anime. Some anime has extreme Ecchi that basically hentai just doesn't show the genitals. Others are mild which has boobs flashes at times. Then the normal soft Ecchi that's light on the content. Some anime just has nudity but not that sexual like American movies. Imo japanese guys are over doing it, it almost in everything now extreme to even really small of it. I'm tired of all that fans service all the time but I'm also tired of America bs on video games woman. Like they have no problem with nudity in a lot of the movies, and partial nudity in tv series but can't handle sexyness in games. Pointless nudity and sexual content is stupid some times might as well watch porn then.
