Yes, i know what hentai is, japanese animated porn cartoons, but where do we draw the line and say "this is hentai, this is graphical."?

example:

~Elfen Lied, Episode 1, Lucy is walking through the corridor, slaughtering the guards. The focus isnt on the fact she's naked, it's on the fact she's murdering the guys. This isnt hentai, it's nudity.

~Ninja Scroll: The Movie, Girl gets felt up, girl is naked with snakes. this isnt hentai, action with some nude scenes.

~Kiss x Sis, suggestive, playful, you never actually see any body parts. this isnt hentai, it's neartai

these are all cases of animes which have been labeled "hentai" but in reality just contain either nudity, with no implications of sex, contain sex, but it isnt the focus and you dont see anything, or are just plain suggestive where you get more skin from Renaissance paintings.

Guy goes to hospital, nurse comes in, guy flirts, nurse has outright, uncensored sex, that is hentai. guy goes to appartments, turns out to be girls only, all girl living in house sleep with him. that is hentai.

opinions?

That is Hentai. Yes.

I didn't think Elfen Lied was under the Hentai category :L

The English use of hentai is more similar to the way the Japanese use the slang term ecchi, which refers to any sexually explicit content or behaviour. The Japanese seldom use the term hentai to refer to pornography in Japan. Instead, terms such as 18-kin, meaning "prohibited to those not yet 18 years old", and seijin manga (adult manga) are used.

Hentai is just anime porn. Things that are nearly hentai, without actual sex, is ecchi. What's so hard to understand?

This.
If they actually show a sex scene+ it's hentai.

Well in the Japanese culture they express nudity more openly than us Americans. (At least I'm American)

So they have different perspectives on what their own animated porn should consist of.

ecchi and neartai are essentially the same thing, neartai is just where it's borderline and they are actually implying it, Ecchi is just where they're flirtatious and doing weird stuff

lol at the neartai... but the difference i think is that hentai is basically sex that is drawn up as opposed to graphic which is just some nudity and extreme violence

Elfen Lied shouldn't be considered Hentai only because Lucy is nude. And I seem to be missing your question.

Not post hunting but pretty much this ^

Nice gif also (wary).

@about ecchi: tbh I like it, it's generally a complement to seinen and even shounen animes. Ex.: fairy tail, btooom!, deadman wonderland.
