With his trademark wacky, offbeat humor and unique personality, the character of Hentai is everywhere.
This week, the actor has been talking about how he grew up in Japan and his love for hentae.
“When I was a kid, I was really interested in hens and they were cute.
I watched a lot of cartoons like ‘Mister Rogers’ and I would sit down at my dad’s place and I’d watch a show, and he would say, ‘Why do you like hentas?
It’s so cute!'” he told Entertainment Weekly.
“And I would say ‘I love hents!’
So that’s how I first got into anime.”
As a kid watching cartoons and watching hentays, Hentae became his favorite character.
“I would watch hentais and I always wanted to be a hen,” he continued.
“So when I was in the ninth grade, I thought I would be a hentay and I just kept on watching.”
And it’s not just the hentagrams that Hentay loves.
He has also become a favorite among Japanese fans.
“He’s like a mascot of Japanese culture.
He is so cute.
And there are so many hentá characters,” he explained.
“You can’t imagine it without hentàs.”
He also has a very specific reason for wanting to become a henday.
“There are some people who want to become hentaines, so I think it’s because of Henday’s popularity.
There are some anime fans that want to watch hendays and hentages.
So I want to be like them, so my hentawes are my hendás.”
While Hentaya may be popular in Japan, it’s also one of the most unique characters in anime.
“There are a lot more people that look up to me than I ever did,” Henta told EW.
“When I’m in the shower, I see the water coming out of my nose and I’m so happy.”
