It’s a What? Anime Genre Part 2

And I’m back! Here are the additional genres with some that are seemingly unique to anime and manga.

3.Eechi

Brimming with sexual innuendo. Lots of panties [pantsu if you want], bras, cleavages, and sexual thought. There are no actual sexual act and no baring of private parts except some buttocks and boobs. Of course, the “unexpected” nudity is
present. Eechi is made for humor, albeit perverted. Eechi is actually the letter H in Japanese which means pervert.
4. Fantasy and Magic

6. Harem/ Reverse Harem

Ah, this might be th fantasy. Focus is on one male protagonist and several pretty female supporting characters. Imagine an awkward, average guy living in a household full of hot girls with different personalities and they’re all coming for him.Female fetishes are represented by the different female personalities. It’s a battelfield. Reverse harem is the exact opposite. It’s one woman versus multiple men.

So… much better? Now choosing is much easier. You don’t have to wonder what genre you like so much. Don’t deny you like Yaoi! Though I watch a lot of shoujo {because in my heart I am a school girl], I do watch a lot of these genre. It’s so hard to choose when the stories are so captivating. Hope you get to enjoy more anime now. Sayonara!
