Downloadable Hentai DVDs, Scanned hentai, Erotic comic books, 3D porn, artwork, Flash games, Sex games

A reported total of no less than 3,000 Gigabytes of content), there’s little doubt that HentaiKey is pretty much paradise for fans of hentai and toon porn.

There’s enough here to keep you entertained for months on end – 24/7.

Given the nature of an AEN network, there are many inconsistencies in design and size among the nearly five hundred included sites, but the best of them are so huge – and generally easy to navigate – that you’ll probably quickly find yourself a good handful of excellent favorites, rather than being relegated to annoying jumping between hundreds of small sites.

Update, August 2020:

Not too long after I wrote the original review, the HentaiKey network was trimmed down from around 800 sites (although as I mentioned back then, the trimming process had apparently already begun back then, as they “only” seemed to have around 400 sites at the time) to currently just around 90 in eight major categories.
That’s not a bad thing at all though, they’ve just gotten rid of the hundreds of smaller sites that were usually just recycling parts of the huge collections you can find at the largest sites in the HentaiKey network.

Personally, I still find myself visiting only roughly a handful of the included sites, and they are all excellent, a couple of them adding new content every single day, whether it’s full hentai movies or manga or doujin comic books, or occasionally interactive Flash games or movies.

A few of the tour preview pages still incorrectly show either 500+ or 800+ sites but ignore those, because HentaiKey is all the better for getting rid of all the unnecessary sites (the reason for dropping them in the first place I imagine). I would be very surprised if the total amount of content has diminished – with all the updates on the best sites in the network I imagine the opposite is true instead.

Original review:

I’ve been a fan of erotic comics and artwork pretty much for as many years as I’ve been a fan of porn, and while I generally prefer Western-style comics and artwork, I have started taking a liking to the, usually, more bizarre and unrealistic (both in style and content) Japanese hentai toons.
HentaiKey, despite the name, offers quite a lot of the former (objectively speaking, actually a hell of a lot), but the main focus is on hentai.

HentaiKey is an AEN – Adult Entertainment Network (formerly commonly known as AVS – Adult Verification Systems. The AVN variation, Video Network, doesn’t really fit in this case since videos are just one type of media on offer), with the main site linking to several hundred large and small sites with everything relating to erotic comics (ranging from softcore all the way to the most bizarre and extreme hentai stuff with tentacles, dickgirls, monsters, demons – you name it).

Aside from a truckload of hentai DVDs in the downloadable format you will also find enough scanned comic books and artwork and individual images to keep you entertained for months on end – and if that isn’t enough, if you browse around a bit you’ll find that even though updates on some of the network sites are sporadic or even non-existent, you can generally find something new every day at one or more sites.

Even interactive Flash games and full-blown hentai sex games hundreds of Megabyte in size can be downloaded from a number of sites. The latter probably won’t be of interest to the average HentaiKey member though, as they require that you know a way around software like CD-emulators etc.

Let’s take a look at the main “hub” site itself where you will log in and click through to the network sites. Rather than just linking to and presenting the many sites in the network you will be spending most of your time on (and chances are you will quickly limit yourself to a handful or two of the best here as well – more on that later), there is actually a fair amount of picture content available right there on the main site, a lot of it drawn exclusively for HentaiKey – and looking pretty damn good I might say, and in full color too unlike many – or rather most – of the licensed and scanned comic books you will find around the network.

As far as exclusive content goes, altogether the main site has seven small interactive Flash games (of the “fuck the hentai/toon babe” variety), 740+ comic pages (each short comic consisting of typically 5-15 pages), and 3,300+ additional images, most of them based around the characters from the comics. In addition to that the main site also has a load of licensed content (a mix of hentai and Western-style toons, as well as 3D toons) – 2,000+ comic pages, 31,000+ pictures, 86 Flash “videos” and 210+ scanned story pages (some of them illustrated).

And all that is before we even move on to the network of sites “protected” by HentaiKey – in fact,
I didn’t even notice all the content I just listed above from the main site before I had spent a few days browsing some of all the other sites.

So lets move on then. Adding up the numbers from the site categories (Hentai, DVD-Movies, Doujin-Manga, Anime, RPG Games, Artists, Cartoons and 3D – some categories obviously overlapping, and DVD-Movies generally covering downloadable hentai DVDs), the total number of sites lands somewhere around 475. I ran into numbers in the neighborhood of 800 a few places on the site, but I also noticed a mention in the news section saying that they are increasing the standard of sites and removing those that don’t quite cut it.

Whether the number is 400-something or closer to 800 it still sounds like you’ll end up doing a whole lot of bothersome jumping around among too many sites with different designs and layouts. In reality, though you will probably quickly find yourself using just a handful or two of the 90% of the time – maybe even fewer, as the best sites in the network are truly huge, and generally well designed as well.

In addition to that, even though the total amount of both picture and movie content across the network is staggering, you will still find a lot of it repeated on numerous sites. Thus, you might as well pull it off the largest and most user-friendly sites – and those tend to be the ones with the best download speeds as well, something that proved to be a bit of a problem (and in some cases a fairly severe one) with some sites.

What about the technical quality of movies, pictures, and comic books then? Well, given the scope of this network there is some variation as you would expect, especially with pictures that vary in size all the way from a small 4-500 pixels on the long side to a pretty huge 3000+. The quality and size of the pages of the same scanned comic books may also vary in size between some sites – but in general, the large sites that are bound to become your favorites pretty quickly are among the best in these areas as well.

That goes for movies as well, as most of the DVDs you will be downloading (usually in two or more parts) usually look great in a high 4k resolution with a bitrate in the neighborhood of 1000 or higher, which also means though, that if you should happen to be on a slow Internet connection you will probably have to stick to the picture side of HentaiKey unless you’re extremely patient during movie downloads.
In the end, despite variations, I decided a quality score of 20/20 was deserved. Aside from the smallish resolution on parts of the picture content, the general impression of both pictures and movies across the network is well past the average porn site.

Regarding the movies, since they are mostly Japanese hentai, it’s also worth mentioning that most of them are either subtitled or dubbed in English. Some are not, but if they are of the type that mostly features straight-on hardcore sex with little or no story, you probably won’t care too much about the limited dialogue anyway.

It’s quite clear that many of the hentai and toon fans behind some of those sites also appear to fit the description “computer geek” fairly well. While the DivX and Xvid formats used for the majority of the videos are fairly standard and you should be able to play most videos without trouble (there are links to the video codecs if you don’t have them installed – which you probably do if you’ve visited more than a few porn sites in the past), I ran into several movies that I simply couldn’t get playing with both picture and sound (not even counting English subtitles which come as a separate overlay track on some movies – requiring special software). And I fit the computer geek description quite well myself and tried a number of different codecs and workarounds. Apparently, I’m not quite geeky enough. Yet anyway.

In general, though, this is not something that should worry you – there’s so much movie content that finding several hundred hours worth of hassle-free playing time shouldn’t be a problem. If you’re really interested in a movie that you can’t get working you may even be able to find it in a different, and playable, format on another site in the network.

In conclusion, even though I’ve never been inside another hentai/toon site or network before, I’m quite confident in saying that I have a very hard time you will find anything more comprehensive than HentaiKey. If you’re a hentai or toon fan I wouldn’t hesitate for a second – this network has everything you could dream of (alright, admittedly several sites could do better in the design/navigation department – I can live with that).
You might want to look at getting a bigger hard drive though – there’s supposed to be around 3,000 Gigabyte worth of videos and pics spread across the sites. And here I naively thought my recently purchased 250 Gb tertiary drive would last me another year or two without constantly cleaning out my old porn.
