Why Has “Hentai” Maintained The Top Spot Globally?

This is a clear indication of how Japanese adult media and pornographies are dominating the industry for a long time. There is no drop in that globally. Even though Japanese Hentai and Porn are censored due to their country’s laws, their popularity has not been affected at all.

On average, 5 to 6 Hentai anime gets released every month, and some of them have become quite popular even though it is considered a taboo genre. There are some controversial sub-genres of “Hentai,” but those are more popular among the Otakus.

In recent years, they have developed or reintroduced a new sub-genre called “vanilla,” which actually has a substantial plot with a lot of sexual penetrations. But this does not stop here.

With the progression of our societal sexual awareness, the content of Hentai is targeting the audiences of the LGBTQ community as well. The contents regarding the “futa” and “yaoi” sub-genre were always present in the Hentai.

But in recent years, they have released the Hentai addressing Bisexuality, which is rare in their genre. Kuro Gal ni Natta kara Shinyuu to shitemita of 2021 under Irawias studio is one of the best examples of this newfound genre. Futa was always a popular sub-genre related to the transgender community.

That is how “Hentai” has kept its relevance to the growing awareness of gender and sexuality in modern times. Japan is not very aware of these aspects of sexuality and “coming out,” but they are developing to grow awareness.
