Ecchi is a Japanese term meaning sexy or erotic, anything that evolves sexy characters. Derived from the word "Hentai" but their meanings are completely different. Ecchi walks that line between sexy, but never crosses it into full graphic nudity or sex.

Overview

Ecchi is a term used in the west to refer to anime and manga with sexual themes that aren't full-blown "Hentai" series (pornography). The term is often used interchangeably with the term "fan service", however while fan service can imply sexual themes, Ecchi always implies sexual themes.

Many examples of Ecchi can be found in series such as Love Hina, Ranma 1/2, and Dragon Ball. All with their own individual use of nudity and skimpy outfits.

Background

The term "Ecchi" comes from the Japanese pronunciation of letter "H", another way of saying "perverted" in Japanese. similar to the word "Hentai" but there meanings are completely different.
