basically yeah, but the main thing is that ecchi does not show any actual dirty acts.

the difference with the 2 is. hentai dont hold censorships with more like xxx movies. unlike the ecchi it has a pure seduction, sexiness and everything that you can imagine about with only half naked part.

hello gypsygoth that's right that ecchi more soft core because in ecchi anime where is most of the anime still cover like girls body that cover with steam from onsen and that's called ecchi and of course in ecchi there's no dirty things ...... but for hentai there's very much of dirty things (in west it called Blue Film) and things are cover less than ecchi ^^V
