Pronounced "hent eye" but with the "t" sound on the "eye" syllable. Just find a could Japanese text book for clarity.

In Japan this word just means pervert. And is never used to incdicate a genre. To indicate the erotic genre they use "etchi" or "ero." And something they write etchi as the letter "H." Hentai never refers to a genre or a naughty picture. Hentai also means transformation, metamorphosis, abnormality, or formation.

The phrase 'hentai video' wouldn't be used in Japan.

Outside of Japan, it refers to both "pervert" and anime with strong sexual themes. Nudity is NOT hentai. Just simple nudity would be etchi. When something sexual is depicted it's the hentai genre.
Japanese usage: "She thinks I'm a hentai!" (Well, if this were said in Japanese...)

English usage: "I got a cable modem so I can download hentai faster!"

A Japanese word denoting unfavorable (or favorable, depending on context and circumstances) sexual connotations.
A loose English translation would correspond to words like "perverse."
Contrary to popular belief (and to its usage in America), when used as a noun, this word denotes a person who fits this description and nothing more.
I was accosted by a hentai on the way home from work.

Hentai (hen-tie) is Japanese for "pervert" or "perversion". In America it is often used to refer to Japanese animated pornography.

Saying the first letter in hentai (H) with a Japanese accent sounds like ecchi (eh'ch-chee). This is a slang word used in Japan that carries the same meaning as "hentai", although in America it is often used to denote soft-core anime porn.
That's some sick hentai you're watching, you ecchi.

The difference between Hentai and Anime is simply this. Hentai is art of a Japanese drawing style that depicts sexually explicit scenes.

Anime is art of a Japanese drawing style not depicting sexually explicit scenes, though usually tells a story of fantasy or something that can't be done in real life.
