17 Best Ecchi Manga Series Totally Worth Reading (2022)

The world of ecchi manga is filled with several titles that you can start reading right this instant, but not all of them are worth your time. That’s the whole reason why I took it upon myself to prepare a list of the best ecchi titles that has both, a good story and tons of erotica!

The ecchi genre stands for all that is naughty, filled with perverted and flirtatious behaviors, yet nuanced heavily with sexual overtones.

While it revolves around sensual jokes, voluptuous female figures, suggestive gestures, and sometimes compromising body shots, it does not go beyond teasing; well, mostly!

That said, it is still brimming with titillating content, ranging from steamy panty/nipple shots to either gawking, caressing, or outright groping.

And so, ecchi manga has gained an enormous fan base consisting of both dedicated and casual manga readers, especially the ones who can’t stomach hentai but still wish to read something lewd and lustful.

But with its unique softcore sexual escapades, ecchi has gained enough fame to be considered a parallel to top-grossing genres like shounen, seinen, romance as well as harem. This is also why new and exhilarating ecchi manga series keep on emerging.

Consequently, there is a deluge of titles to be explored. So, if you are new to this regime, you may feel a little lost. So, I present to you a list featuring the best and must-read titles that you should considering reading this year!
