A Yahoo search for the Japanese loanword HENTAI produces over 7 million hits – more than twice that of better known loanwords such as SAMURAI, GEISHA or SUSHI.
This astonishing number is evidence of the popularity of a genre of erotic MANGA and ANIME referred to as HENTAI by western fans. HENTAI is an artistic expression of pornography in Japan. As opposed to photographic erotica, they allow full use of the imagination as well as scenes that run counter to accepted society and culture. Elements of sexual fantasy are represented in ways that would be impossible to film.
This is not without precedent in Japan. During the Edo Period, which was the heyday of ukiyo-e wood-block prints, ukiyo-e had a pornographic variant, called SHUNGA, which also had scenes that were sometimes surreal.

In Japanese the word hentai is a kanji compound of 変 (hen meaning “change” “weird” or “strange”) and 態 (tai meaning “attitude” or “appearance”). The term is used as a shortened form of the phrase 変態性欲 (hentai seiyoku), or “sexual perversion”. In slang, 変態 (hentai) is used as an insult meaning roughly “pervert” or “weirdo”. The term is not often applied to pornography in Japan. Instead, terms such as18-kin (18禁, literally “18-prohibited”) meaning “prohibited to those not yet 18 years old”, and seijin manga (成人漫画 “adult manga”) are used when referring to pornography.
