Oh wait wtf my flair was Dickstacy not thorin brb
The roots of japanese animation come from animation and animated films itself. Actually the roots of Japanese genres were action, thrillers, horrors and adventure etc. "Hentai" actually became a thing in 1984 and was not the reason anime began to blow up, it was mainly due to the success of animations like Akira, Spirited away, Astroboy, Cowboy Bebop etc. nothing to do with ecchi.
Don't worry, I do read unlike other idiots on HLTV. If Anime was meant to be for degenerates, then everyone who watches any animations are degenerates. Weebs are degenerates, Family Guy viewers are racist retards tadaaa. Also Animation is also a market if you hadn't noticed, since the degenerates and lonely people who can't be bothered making friends wanna see them anime tiddies, these has been a spike in animes including fanservice. Anime has now been copy paste of generic shit, hence why I don't really watch it but it TrIgGeRs me when people think Anime is just the cause of all this shit. Anime is just japanese for Animation and originates from the roots of Animation itself so really, when you blame Anime, you blame the whole animation industry
Fuck this is long... TLDR: Yes and No
