Mainstream characters who look like they belong in Hentai.

Now there is a no hentai rule on AV, so post with caution as far as images go, but this thread is basically a "what the hell were they thinking" thread, the characters shown should be PG-13 at best, but with some obvious hentai-like trait, these are the ones who seem weird to be in the mainstream, and yet are.
I will submit Transformers character Legion as the first example, his "tongue" is certainly suggestive

@EganTheVile1: Please correct me if I'm wrong, but adding Hentai series to the wiki is fine as long as there aren't any nude/explicit images involved (which was why some of the mods (myself included thanks to permission) had censored a number of H-Manga covers and cleaned out anything unsavory alonside other users like myself.

The closest to a mainstream character that totally looks like an Hentai character was Shii Aasu from Puni Puni Poemi. to me. She's always at risk of an wardrobe malfunction. There are more anime gals like her, but I think Shii's the most notable for looking like an H-Character.

@Bigheart711:  I'd count Legion among the OK characters too, his tongue certainly looks suggestive, but it was in a manga marketed towards kids, kinda my point, these oddly suggestive characters exist in the mainstream
Also there are a ton of Ikki Tousen characters who are non-hentai and look just as, if not more suggestive then Shii like Ryofu Housen.

@Bigheart711: Yeah, but in her case that is the joke.

Very, very true. XD

@EganTheVile1: Yeah, definitely agreed! Most of the Ikki Tousen characters totally look like H-Characters, especially Ryofu, Hakufu and Saji Genpou.

@MrXD: Meh, Queen's Blade looks like a girl scout jamboree compared to Seikon no Qwaser. Of course, I think it's their intention to be the most perverse thing around just short of hentai. Hell, it's got a loli-dominatrix as a central character.

In the spirit of the question though, Muscle Okama from Zettai Karen Children is fresh in my mind having watched a bunch of episodes recently. He's a comic-relief villain who dresses like "Hard Gay" and has a super-big-magnum crotch beam attack. He's not flamboyantly gay (at least not as bad as some Japanese representations) but he is aggressively gay. In the first episode he's trying to steal a giant gold muscle-man statue.

From everyday's fanservice to hentai there is no line separating black and white, but a full scale of grey, where we find ecchi and the boundaries are very blurry. (If you want a short answer, go to the last line of this message.)

At least from my point of view. For instance it's weird that in some places:

  1. Men and women have nipples.
  2. Men don't have breasts, women have breasts.
  3. Men can show their chest and their nipples.
  4. Women can show their breasts but not their nipples.
  5. The characteristics part of the sexual dimorphism are not a problem for censorship, but shared characteristics are, for only one gender!

I really can't see the logic in that. Topless is socially accepted in many places today, it was the cultural norm in the ancient Egypt. Full nudity in some (nudist) places in "modern civilization" and it's culturally the norm in some tribes in the Amazon. The cultural norm in some places is the veil for women, and in other places the burka. Internet is global, wikipedia is uncensored and genitalia are pictured, but no explicit sexual images, which are the most "problematic", however explicit sex between animals is not a problem in most contexts. (Warning: generalization ahead) "Japanese culture" is considered as "pervert" by "american culture", however genitalia must be censored even in porn, it's mandatory according to Japanese law (not the case in America). The United States praise their "freedom", but when they think about nudist beaches they think about Europe. Including a little nudity will take the age rating for some media up subjectively (IMHO) faster than violence (or gore or terror), headshooting half-rotten zombies is culturally (in some cultures) way more accepted than fighting games where women show "too much" skin.

Sex was a taboo before because it was associated with reproduction. Now science has provided us with (new and better) contraceptive methods, but the culture is lacking behind and sex is still a taboo. The problem is: the lack of knowledge about sex, about contraceptive methods and all this general context is to some extent preventing people from practicing more sex (as traditionally) which could be considered good for some people (for reasons I don't really know), but to a greater extent, in the current context, it's doing something that is clearly bad, it's preventing people from having a sexual education that would allow them to prevent undesired pregnancies and sexual transmission diseases. Nudity and the human body are also taboos, the perception of the human body is distorted and this causes problems that lead to painful plastic surgery in some cases, among many other problems due to self-rejection, complexes, etc. There would be much less "perverted" people if the normal and natural sexual appeal was accepted as something normal and natural. We could also speak about the differences between chimpanzees and bonobos and many other things, but if you got reading so far I think I will just thank you and finish this. So I think there are good reasons to think that:

  1. Much of what is being done is some form of culture preservation, for an arbitrary set of cultures, while there is no objective or rational reason to consider these cultures more valuable, better or more worthy of this "preservation". There is no reason (a priori) for it.
  2. The implications of much of what is being done are negative and harmful. There are motives (a posteriori) not to do it.

Well, to sum up, I have no clue about what is PG-13 and why is it so. But you may be interested in this list:

PD: Naruko (Naruto's sexy no jutsu), I guess Naruto is rated PG-13. At the same time, the sexy no jutsu is meant to be hentai, in some way, it's meant to be used as some form of distraction by nudity and sexual appeal, so it can be considered as hentai in "Naruto's Universe", and then veiled and "conveniently censored" for consumption in "our universe". I could not find an image, so here you have a video:

@Trylks:  PG-13=shirtless men OK, scantily clad but not bare chested woman OK, no below the belt genitals. This is a thread about characters who push the limits of censorship

@EganTheVile1: I don't really understand how censorship works.

She is dressed: http://www.animevice.com/saiki-misaki/18-29746/all-images/84-213119/misaki_2_/83-308920/

She is not: http://www.giantbomb.com/princess-ruto/94-2561/all-images/52-294528/ruto2/51-671423/

There are many characters in the Looney Toons that don't wear any clothes, you may say they are not human, but... is Felicia human?

All I see is that it doesn't matter which are the limits of censorship, there is no way to set them clear, and even after good attempts there are characters jumping in and out of them constantly.
