Finally a hentai site worth your time. Hentai Key is without a doubt one of the best online adult hentai experiences I've ever had. At first, I was a little unsure as to what the site was really offering because on my initial walk-through, I was overwhelmed by the sheer amount of content. With links, pics and vids everywhere, it's a little confusing at first. It seems like everything is bundled into a section inside other sections, so it takes a few clicks to actually get to the material.
There is an original content section, a licensed section and access to GT sites, which make up hundreds of additional collections to visit. Like I said, it is a little overwhelming, which makes it pretty impossible to come up with exact numbers. It looks like there are about 26,000 movies (including Flash animations and games) and around 1,500 photo sets is probably in the right ballpark, but it could easily be more.
It could also easily be less, because it looks like many of the GT sites actually link directly to the bonus feeds instead of having their own movie sections. Those that do have proper movie sections only let you either stream or download vids that you would already find among the feeds anyway. Meanwhile, many of the sites have either stopped updating altogether or only add the occasional photo to already existing image sets on a very slow basis, all of which are already found on other GT sites.
The original content on the main site is like that, too. The updates section shows you what has been added to the original and licensed areas and it's not looking good. The last dates are from 2011 and 2006, respectively. That doesn't mean they all stopped updating, though.
I spotted a site dedicated to bringing you a new image every day that shows "One Piece" characters fucking. I also found another that updates on an inconsistent basis, but when it does, it adds tons of videos from both hentai and classic non-hentai anime series in a single shot. So, to sum up, they've stopped updating on the main page, but a handful of the GT sites add tons of new toons every month.
There are original Flash games where you can watch animated couples fuck, as well as hentai videos and links to live-action porn. You also get RPGs. I got so caught up in a bunch of them that I had to download them so that I could continue playing after I finished writing this review.
Although the content is very engaging, the quality varies greatly. Some of the movies are good in quality, but the majority of what I came across was low in quality. Depending on where you find the video, you'll either get to stream or download it. Sometimes you can't even do that, as a bunch of links on the GT sites take you to the main site's join page instead. On top of this, a bunch of them have DRM protection on Zip files and movies.
As you can see, it's far from being the most user-friendly cartoon site we've ever reviewed. However, for every negative comment one of our users has left over the years, there's been someone who has raved about how amazing it is. That's because while Hentai Key certainly has plenty of faults, it's still worthy of your attention if you consider yourself a lover of toon porn.
