* So... if the "H" isn't short for {{Hentai}}, what ''does'' it mean?
** My guess is that it does come from the English transliteration of "Hentai", which only means "perverted", using the first letter as a stand-in. But I really don't know...
** It almost certainly does come from "hentai", and the EDICT dictionary even says as much. The two terms still aren't synonymous, though. I've revised the article to reflect this.
** Japanese use it as a shortcut for Ecchi. When they pronounce "H" with the accent, it sounds like "Ecchi".
* You're actually watching "H." Perhaps more accurately a mispronunciation of the name of the letter H.
* Is there ecchi with fanservice focused primarily on men?
** Yes, there is. Usually in yaoi-genre stories, but the anime series Free! is the latest series of male-fanservice for female audience.
