Top 5 List For Ecchi Anime Classics

The word, Ecchi, is pronounced “EH-chee” and is a Japanese slang term used for playful sexual actions. Western anime fans use the word Ecchi to refer to anime and manga with sexual themes or anime/manga that are sexually suggestive. However, these do not explicitly show sexual intercourse or genitals. In essence, this is a milder version of Hentai.

The Ecchi anime genre has grown over the years since its birth. Some of these animes have a reasonable plot while others fixate on scantily-clothed women or naked women showing off their boobs and those beautiful panty shots.

This list focuses on the classics of the Ecchi genre which is Ecchi anime that came out before 2010. These animes pioneered the Ecchi genre and fans of the Ecchi genre most likely started with one of these.

5. DIRTY PAIR (1985)

Dirty Pair is one of the oldest Ecchi animes. As a pioneer of this genre, it is always relevant in related discussions.

The main characters from this anime are two sexy, scantily dressed agents named Kei and Yuri. Kei has bigger boobs while Yuri possesses the bigger ass. Dirty Pair infused cute girls with popping goodies in skimpy clothing into science fiction and they sure got the views they wanted. This show forked in a lot of money and was a success.

4. MAHOU SENSEI NEGIMA (2005)

In English, this anime is titled Magical Teacher Negima. This anime combines comedy and harem to keep its audience entertained.

There is magic and nudity to keep fans happy. It’s sprinkled with a bit of romance that helps move the plot forward. We even see a magical contract that can only be sealed with a kiss.

3. VIDEO GIRL AI (1992)

Video Girl Ai is a popular classic of the Ecchi genre made by the famous animation studio, Production IG.

This anime has a crazy plot. Yota is lonely so he buys a video of a girl pretending to be the audience’s girlfriend but in his case, the girl comes out of the TV and the drama starts as she tries to help Yota secure the girl of his dreams.

In typical Ecchi fashion, we see a lot of nudity accompanying the comedic nature of this show.

2. GOLDEN BOY (1995)

This is one of the greatest Ecchi animes ever and it was adapted from an equally popular manga. The Golden Boy manga goes beyond the borders of Ecchi, almost pornographic at some points.

The anime doesn’t go that far and primarily showcases partial female nudity/masturbation.

1. LOVE HINA (2000)

This anime is situated right at the beginning of the decade, ensuring that the 2000s is a good period for the Ecchi genre. The author of Love Hina is also the author of Mahou Sensei Negima. Bringing the Ecchi and Harem genres together, Ken Akamatsu made a classic never to be forgotten.
