Is Hentai good story telling?

Hello! I’m Fu-reiji! The blog where we talk about the topics you may or may not want to. So… Is Hentai good story telling?

Okay okay for those of you who are new to anime or japanese culture in general let’s go over the basic run down. Hentai is for a lack of a better term animated pornography. just your everyday live action porn only in either animated or manga(comic) format of pretty much why Japan can often be considered one of the few countries that has a lot of fetishes under its belt. More often than not you’ll also notice that whether it’s animated, manga, or even visual novels Japanese developers, writers, and artists often go out of their way to do a proper set up and story as opposed to american pornography that’s basically “Package ma’am.” where the woman is already dressed skimpy and invites the amazon guy into her house for a special tip or who can forget the old step daddy getting it on with his new step daughter. Oh don’t get me wrong Japan has all that too it’s just the way they approach is still done and shot like they’re telling a story. even if most are just using those set ups to get the ball rolling.

the main reason I ask this question is cause little by little certain groups and individuals have come out to talking about Hentai plots and their relevance. one notable example that has been becoming topic in the past 2 or 3 years albeit very slowly but being talked about and even appreciated as something of a actual well written story. I’m of course talking Shindo L’s aka Da Hootch’s Metamorphosis.

I won’t talk about this one too much mostly cause I’d just be reiterating what Inskidee already said in her blog yesterday 11/11/2019 which I’ll link here:

and I’ll also link 3 youtube videos. 2 from the anime man who talks about this story in 2 videos but one of those is more of an interview with Shindo L himself.

and the third is from Akidearest which she posted about 2 years ago.

So yeah nothing I say about it would be much different from what those 3 already said about Metamorphosis but does bring me to the topic of how a story can come from anywhere. even in hentai. Yes there’s the always obvious reasons we read or watch porn in general which is to rub one… or two… or three… sometimes 4 if you took a week off lol but like any kind of genre hentai isn’t always just that and there can be some good stories that you’d find in any shonen, light novel, romcom, and lewd ecchi series. but just cause it has those tags doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed a good story or something that has much thought put into it which I’m sure we can all name many series that left us empty. Hentai is the same way. with Metamorphosis you get a very dark and depressing story about very real subject matters that can impact and affect your life in long lasting ways.

another example of a hentai that has a deeper story than most thought would Euphoria.

Yeah you know, the eroge visual novel turned 6 episode OVA hentai of multiple endings and what the fuckery and mind fuckery. That actually had a story that can interpreted in a lot of ways. more so with the eroge as the ovas did have to cut a lot of details out. Cults, human tribes in schools, the 2 sided faces of people and just a bunch of stuff happening that you may not make sense of all of it in one go.

So what is it about some Hentai that do get overlooked only to find they have some deeper meaning stuff that takes the most popular of shonen over 600 chapters just to say it and others too many to count and remember? well I think if you were to really look for the very unique mangas and anime that aren’t hentai along with hentai like the 2 examples I mentioned I think the common factor they have in common is they aren’t afraid to use sex in both the good and bad ways it plays a part in our world. it’s not always necessary but when you look at the set up the sex scenes can be seen as how 2 lovers finally have their moment together or you can even grasp why the darker stuff such as rape happened there. School Days despite what you may have thought about the anime and looking back on it did have a point in telling the story of what happens when you take too much out of life at the expense of others and hurting them which as we saw with makoto got hit with karma hard or if you played the original game then 90% of the time you get a bad ending cause a lot of the choices affected the people around you and that’s a rare thing to see. I won’t argue if that was done well or not mostly cause I can’t say if that was done well or bad in how telling a story of how your choices can affect you and those around you.

Other series such as goblin slayer, berserk, and a few others in light novels and more mature themed manga that utilize sex in both its good and bad representations tend to be the most talked about mostly cause they got used in ways to express something or show shit has hit the fan in most cases and it’s in nature to have lust. yeah we’re always going to the my hero academias, narutos, one pieces, dragon balls, and such avoiding these concepts to tell their stories to keep a certain age rating and often use sex as more of a joke reference to the lewd perverts of a series but I think as long as concepts such as sex, drug abuse, ilnesses, mental instabilities, and all that are handled maturely or in a way that’s to tell the reader something then you’ll have an interesting story. you don’t always need them but then add something to your story if used properly.

that said I can also see why people brush off those concepts as trash and that’s mostly thanks to series like SAO, Hensuki, Senran Kagura, High School DxD and any number of them that often treat sex as a whole as something comedic and light hearted or in SAO’s case comes off as forced and really downplays the traumas that come from rape and nearly being murdered mostly cause Reki Kawahara regardless of what you think of him can’t seem to figure out if he wants to tell a PG 13 story or an R rated one. it’s fine to enjoy those series since we all have our favs but I think it’s important to realize why stories like Euphoria, Metamorphosis, any hentai with a deep or romantic story in general or any M rated mangas get overlooked cause those examples and many others do make light of concepts which often leads to underrated series that get overlooked and people overlooking certain subtle messaging and symbolism being told. and yeah obviously western shows are as guilty of this too with shows like family guy and others on adult swim that tend to over play it these days for a big joke that doesn’t always pay off.

So if you find a series that has these elements that make you uncomfortable then it’s fine if you don’t want to read or watch them but don’t brush them off as automatic bad trash series till you’ve taken a look, gave it time to sink in and process it then decide if you feel you read something with meaning or not.

That’s about it all I have to say on this question as you can figure out if Hentai is good telling and please give Inskidee’s blog on metamorphosis a read as well as check out those 3 vids on this post. Till next time, This has been Fu-reiji! The blog where we talk about the topics that you or may not want to. Now if you’ll excuse. I got some “reading” to do.

This blog is just to post images for role playing purposes, bit of news that is happening, with help from a few other people we'll also get some very good calculated feats of our favorite characters, measurements of our favorite waifus, while also doing reviews on various anime, shows, movies, and manga. I am hoping to eventually do video discussions here but one step at a time. as for why do I have the name Fu-reiji on my public user display well it was just me wanting to see how google translate says my name in Japanese almost 10 years ago and I've stuck with it since. lol

One thought on “Is Hentai good story telling?

  1. The simple answer is no. Porn and plot conflict with each other, the more plot in porn. the shitter the porn. Nobody comes to porn for a detailed backstory. The only story that should be needed for the porn is the basic set up to why the character is fucking, that’s about it.

    And let’s be frank shitty hentai like Kunirou where the bad guys al;ways win and have enslaved a whole kingdom of women have further convinced me that porn like that isn’t just horrible due to the constant rape hentai in it, it’s convinced me that no matter how much effort is in the plot, it would never betoken seriously due to the fact it collides with the porn

    I hate to kink shame here but Japan is full of degeneracy, I’m all for sexual liberation and empowerment but it’s fetishes are just outright degenerate and i feel destructive to society. For example the Loilcon fetsihizaiton or shotacon fetishization, i’m forced to agree with the dipshits on the UN that it’s borderline child porn, only difference is that i fucking hate the UN far more than Loilcon/Shoatcon because they actually have child trafficking rings in the UN and are represented by ass-backward inferior cultures who promote actual pedophilia and child marriage. Then there’s the rape fetish shit which honestly would never fly here for a good reason, i don’t really see how anyone can fap to rape hentai however at least even that’s more understandable than the fucking tentacle shit, seriously what the fuck is with Japan with Teancles, tenancies represent the worst horrors of a horror movie or game, when i see teancles, i don; ‘t want to fap to that shit, i want to take a 12 gauge and kill those shits.

    so in my opinion. no, i don’t see any story potential in hentai, most of the time it’s just an excuse for rape or tentacles, i don’t see plot potential in American porn either and that’s a good thing. When i’m fapping to Buty MIFLS taking on the entire football team i don’t want a complex plot on how she’s a Neurosurgeon fighting against cancer, i want to see her take dicks in all her holes. I see plot in porn more of a calaytist of setting up the porn, not so much as a useful plot median.

    Also in my opinion, the worst type of porn is the dark and depressing shit, I don’t fap to porn to feel depressed, if wanted to be depressed, i look at the state of politics in the country or listen to how godawful music and Hollywood movies have become nowadays, i don’t need porn or hentai incorporating that bullshit in my escapist fantasy. I have very little interest in American porn that has rape in it much less a plot about rapists getting away with rape in 99% of Japanese hentai.

    Also, sexuality in anime is rarely a plot point, it’s usually for laughs or comedy and it’s rarely about bad things like you see in Beserker, Goblin Slayer(BTW one of the reasons i refuse to watch that anime is because the rape is too graphic for me) but those are rarely plot elements of their own, even Berserker and Goblin Slayer which has uncomfortable amounts of rape aren’t about an entire plot of rape, they’re about a badass warrior fighting and killing demons as opposed to 30 minutes of demons raping women and getting away with it.

    I disagree, i think the concept of porn and plot is stupid, to begin with, and i rather watch SAO, Hensuki, Senran Kagura, High School DxD than any Hentai with a plot. All i need to know about hentai in the plot is that it gives us nothing but 3-0 minutes to an hour of a bitch being gang-raped by demons, humans or robots or god forbid tenacles.

    All i need to know about porn and plot is Kurino, Tasgmiani Asagi, and that Battleship Hentai and frankly, that’s all i fucking want to know about hentai with a plot. Call me close-minded and narrow-minded and a boomer all you want but if this shit is how hentai looks with a plot, then i be a proud close-minded boomer on this topic. Now that’s not to say there probably hentais that can make this work, you outlined some decent examples, i’m just saying in my personal opinion, i can care less about porn in a plot.

    What hentai you know comes close to the writing of Full Metal Aclmehtist? None i can think of, hell most porn and hentai would be lucky to reach the writing quality of Fairy Tail or Bleach or even Boruto in my opinion much less classic animes like Full Metal Alchemist and frankly, i don’t think porn and plot should ever go together. That’s like trying to mix fire and gasoline, never going to work and would just create a disaster.

    I think we can all agree SAO is SHIT! SAO is a crappy seires, to begin with that started out with the promise of an Isekai game that turned to shit the moment we realized the main character is an Invincible Mary Sue but ironically enough the attempted rapes and implied rapes in SAO actually ironically resemble the very same sexualization of rape all too common in hentai. I don’t want to see rape in a seires clearly not mature or talented enough to handle rape without treating it as a cheap excuse for shock value and making 12-year-olds horny,

    As for Family Guy, People still watch that shit? Family Guy hasn’t been good in literally a whole decade, largely because of its bad writing, overly shitty political jokes, horrible characters, and attempts at shock humor. Also another example of why porn and plot don’t mix, Family Guy while not being porn has the bad writing on par with your typical thin veiled plot porn.

    Hell, i make Hentai myself but i don’t consider it even close to the writing of the fanfictions i also do at the same time. One of them i don’t have to give two shits about the constitute of characters, characteristics or character background, just find a good enough hook to why they’re doing this hentai shit.

    I just take a simple enough plot and work with it, nothing more there.

    I should make my own post on this one to explain my viewpoint.
