"Ecchi" [[NoPronunciationGuide (pronounced EH-chee)]] is used by English-speaking anime fans to refer to soft-core pornographic or sexually suggestive anime and manga. This is entirely a western invention, as in Japanese, it is a catch-all term for all things sexual, not limited to porn and not really considered a "milder" term. The term "ecchi" in Japanese comes from the pronounciation of the letter "H" in English - "aitch" is rendered into Japanese syllabary as エッチ, which in turn is transliterated into the Roman alphabet as "ecchi". The letter "H" comes from the word "{{Hentai}}", but the term as currently used is not synonymous with {{Hentai}}.

Note that display of nipples alone is not sufficient to be considered Ecchi. Shows exist that aren't focused on sexuality, but will show the occasional bare breast. Like Europe, Japan is also a bit more relaxed about displaying breasts on regulated tv then in America, but typically does not show such content in most of its shows. In America, display of nipples means you are either watching something on unregulated tv such as HBO, or something completely off tv altogether.
