This is a drawing of female figure with typical elements from manga and anime to illustrate the term and genre ecchi. Regarding this topic the girl is drawn in a position that would enable it to leave out the clothes entirely without showing any primary sexual characteristics. The clothes itself are a partially transparent dress, which is as common as wet clothes. The background shows a blue sky with a blossom sakura tree, which is a fairly often used motif in manga and anime. The scene itself is represented in dutch angle, which exploits the length of the diagonal, thus laying the focus on the character itself.
In Japanese slang, ecchi denotes everything that can be seen as "dirty", "naughty", "frivolous" or "perverted", but the undertone is milder and not usually seen as insulting as the term "hentai". The term ecchi also denotes a fairly common genre/aspect of manga and anime which features (female) characters in tight, very short, nearly transparent, askew clothing, which is often seen as "rampant fan service". It doesn't show any sexual intercourse or primary sexual characteristics, but plays with suggestions − usually found in comedic Shōnen/Seinen manga, harem anime or bishōjo (美少女, literally "beautiful young girl") illustrations.
