Sup Guys,

Alot of people seem to count these in the smae breath. I dont think they could be any diffrent . I mean do you think you can say Cowboy bebop and Bible Black can be compared. I dont even think that Hentai should be counted anywhere near Anime and was shocked to find a page about an Hentai movie on this site. I dont know if the Staff or that is aware or if it allowed but it got me thinking about all us anime fans and what your thoughts on hentai is, I mean i can't stand it, the story is always the same someone or something over powering and weaking someone If half the stuff that happens in Hentai happend in real life porn it would be banned cause that all it is Porn at its worst. Mind yoou I could be wrong as I dont know much about it so If I am please feel free to put me right .

Little Sparrow.

Hentai is anime. Pornographic, but anime nonetheless.  Just like porn movies are still movies. The quality of MOST hentai comes nowhere that of a good anime series, but Hentai is still very much anime.

If this site desires to be an encyclopaedia yes but i am not sure about the official word here however since the bible black page that i submitted was accepted my guess is yes. If it bothers you dont look for it, it works on giant bomb.

See I agree just like you get porn and yes you get movies, So I can see it from that point of view . But also just like movies they are classed and seperated. So you get Action and comedy and then so on. So in that case do we class all movies under one title of movies. I see this as an Anime/Manga place but were is the line drawn.


Thanks for your input guys.

O yeah that is just giant bombs standard.

So i check a movie page and you can tag a game "hentai" in gernes so it is ok to add hentai stuff on this site so long as you tag it correctly. I dont know about fanart how ever, my guess is that you can post the source material but you cant post porn fanart, here a can a mod might want to say it for sure.
The way the site architechture is written a game tagged hentai wont appear on the front page when it is most visited for example not exposing "innoncent" people who click on it by curiosity.

It's the same here as on Giant Bomb.

Speaking of porn -- ethan confirmed in the mod forums that nudity is allowed, but only when it concerns official works. So the same rules as GB, basically. Just thought you might be interested. :)

Because, y'know, it's not like we're gonna announce this publicly or anything.

You obviously don't watch a lot of hentai (not saying that's a bad thing), because it's not all about rape or tentacles. Just the more popular ones are, probably because of why you said, it can't be done in real life... which is one reason anime is so popular. I, on the other hand, watch a lot of hentai. There are some that have good stories, like the adult anime Shadow (or Kage) which has sex scenes and is also a really good four episode OVA, and I can actually seriously recommend it to adult viewers for the actual animation and plot and not just the adult material.

See I understand it if the sence hace a place much like in some movies the sences can be explcit. But thank you for the well thought response and I may check out Shadow and see what it is like. it is intresting to see how diffrent everyone is and how hentai is not just easily as classed as I thought it was. I am a little navie when it comes to this hence the blog post so Once again i thank you all for your input.

well, I have to argue this in a CV sense...but I think its the same basic concept...Watchmen is called one of the 100 greatest novels since 1923...yet it has nudity, should it be left out because of that?

I understand your ideas about child-friendliness and all that...but I seriously think its a big loss to rob an encyclopedia of knowledge simply because of the adult nature of a certain page, however, I think perhaps certain pages should be flagged and not visible to people, but than again anyone can lie about their age, but that way, if your looking at it, its by choice and not by accident.

I think Hentai anime should be here and I'm pleased that is allowed. Hentai Anime is free of many of the restrictions of your average porn since it is true fantasy.

On Giant Bomb, games with an Adult theme don't show up on the front page, and I think they've mentioned that they might be doing something to warn people that a game contains adult content.
This site has an Adult theme available as well, so those series could be prevented from showing on the front page if it's not already set that way.

than you'd be surprised how extensive the Japanese get with their naming...every type of hentai has a different name based on the age and sex of the participants I believe (learned that little fact when Kiara and Vance were talking on CV and I had to look up all the Japanese lingo)

anyways, since this site is an encyclopedia, everything about anime should be on here and if some stuff offends you, stay away from that stuff
