    Yakami-chan here to explain the obvious differences with these two types of entertainment. First off I will start by describing what each is. The term “anime” most commonly refers to “Japanese Animated Cartoons” This includes but is not limited to: Azumanga Daioh, Spice and Wolf, Lucky Star, Gundam, Pokemon, Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Durarara!!, Soul Eater, Madoka Magica, Steins Gate, Clannad, Kanon and Kirby!. Similar to American animation all anime have different art styles, the most distinctive in my opinion is definitely Studio Ghibli. General anime have don’t have an age limit and are displayed on shelves like normal moves or T.V season

    Not all Anime shear the same art style :3
    The major differeance between the anime’s I listed above are the mer artstyle and story.

    Now onto Hentai, Hentai is a general term that describes sexual explicit comics and animation, They are all rated +18 and would not be on TV. Pokemon for one is not a Hentai cartoon seeing how there is nothing sexually explicit about it. When displayed for say Hentai will have shrink wrapped and have a cover over the case similar to other pornography. All and all Hentai is just animated porn, and it is completely different from anime.

    Here are some pictures of different Anime’s:
