HentaiPlay – the Fetish Dude analysis
I think everyone knows by now that when it comes to reviewing websites in the anime porn space, Fetish Dude is the go-to king that understands the whole thing. Well, today, I'm going to be talking to you about a spot called HentaiPlay, which allegedly offers some of the best videos around and does so completely free of charge too. Oh, and before I forget: the 'play' here really does only just refer to videos – you won't find any anime porn games, too bad! Anyway, let's get this review started, because I cannot wait to explore all of what HentaiPlay has to offer.
The homepage at HentaiPlay
Since most folks who're looking to come here want to enjoy content immediately, I'm always keen to take a look at the homepage of destinations to see how well they stand up to scrutiny. In respect to HentaiPlay, I feel like they've done a good job of giving people access to all of the links, tools and previews they need to make it as optimized as possible. You may think that this sounds silly, but there's a simple fact that lots of anime porn hubs out there are not fit for purpose and don't consider the user experience. Good thing this isn't a concern for HentaiPlay, right?
The majority of the homepage real estate is devoted to showing you preview panes from different series' episodes that you can enjoy. Note that this isn't a spot where short clips are shared: they seem to focus exclusively on giving people access to long-form hentai from professional production houses. Currently, the preview panes consist of a title, view count, comment count, favorite count and a thumbnail. You'll also notice on some of the episodes that there's information regarding English subtitles, so if you're looking for something that will explain exactly what's being said, that's the feature for you. By the looks of things, content here is sorted based on upload date, although I could be wrong.
Community features on HentaiPlay
There are a few community features here, including a pretty active comment section for some episodes where people will give their opinions on the media or something else. Admins will also sometimes update when an episode currently isn't available and then provide information when it comes back online. One thing I've noticed about people who enjoy hentai is that they're quite vocal and don't mind talking about the topic. That's great in a lot of circumstances – especially with the chat box on the right-hand side of the page that gives you the ability to community with others and ask questions if you've got any issues. Allegedly they also have a moderator you can contact with the handle 'AssToast420' – great name, isn't it?
The hentai list on HentaiPlay
In the header, there's a link to 'hentai list', which is a fantastic tool to utilize if you have a specific series you're interested in looking at. The layout for this page is pretty awful with just an alphabetical rendering (no previews or meta information), although I suppose it does do the job of showing you all the various hentai you can access from this website. Some of the names that you'll see here include the likes of Immoral Sisters, Alice Doll, Akiko, Shikijou Kyoudan and more. I think almost all of the major series are covered, as well as some stuff that you might not be too familiar with. Sadly, there is no real information on what each one has to offer, so you can't read a quick blurb on the topic or what's going on. They also don't have theme tags here, so you can't look for hentai focused on ideas such as schoolgirls or incest.
Watching content at HentaiPlay
When you find an episode that seems interesting to you, go right ahead and click on it to load up the page devoted to showing you the hentai you desire. One thing I think that I will mention right now is that if you're using a traditional ad blocker, you will have to disable it in order to enjoy the content at HentaiPlay. I dislike this and while I run adverts myself, I still think people ought to have the right to not run them. This is quite important too because in my opinion, Hentai Play has too many ads. They are literally everywhere and it's not a good look, so fingers crossed they do something about that in the not too distant future. They probably won't because money is involved, but a man can wish, right?
When you do load up the video, it'll stream in a pretty high quality – 720p or 1080p, that's for sure. Sadly, I had issues with a few of the things that I clicked on not loading, which is a pretty big shame. I tried in a few different browsers and I still came across the same issue, so something is definitely going on here with regard to the archive and accessibility. You also cannot download anything locally, which seems to be something that anime lovers out there always want to do. I can't tell you why that's the case, but I'm pretty sure it's not too hard to program. Hell, you can even dig into the inspect element and pull the video out if you really want to – better than sitting there and being stuck with a stream-only situation.
My conclusion on HentaiPlay
Okay folks: I think that's pretty much all Fetish Dude wants to write about in regard to HentaiPlay. I've had a great time looking at all of the material that's on offer here and well, it's safe to say that while there are issues with the advertisements, HentaiPlay does deliver a great streaming environment for people who want to watch hentai series online. They're not my first choice in this regard, but it's a top-tier candidate that you should certainly consider if you like looking at lewd videos.
Thanks a bunch for sticking through this entire review on Hentai Play. If you want to find more great anime porn destinations, be sure to read all the reviews I have devoted to the best hentai websites around! Take care and happy fapping.
