I've got a post or two coming, but can't post much more than this right now.
One of 'em will be a review of the closest-to-hentai-but-isn't show I've ever seen. I'll let you guess which series it is!
Is it Futari Ecchi? Buttobi CPU?
Those are the only two I can think of that fit that description, if you mean a series that would be pornographic if they showed just a little bit more...

That's the problem with being a redheaded duck...

An off the top-of-my-head tabulation suggests that most shows prominently featuring a red head are worth watching.

I did some googling. Here was one comment I found: "Make damned sure that it's the Collector's Edition version, otherwise you're dealing with the TV-broadcast censored version, rife with terrible, overmassaged translation."
That was from a netnews post from 2005. It was from Dave Watson, the guy behind "Being UpFront". Maybe I should write to him and find out what he was talking about.
I only scanned through the three episodes on my disk once, and I'm not sure I want to go back. But what I do remember was quite a lot of fan service but no full-blown ecchi. Maybe that was just because it was the first three episodes, or maybe it's because I got shafted.

Steven, from the review above, I'm going to guess you don't have the Collector's Edition. Short version: no english dub, maybe an "Essential Anime"-style packaging, blah blah blah.
Shorter version: topless redheads.

I don't seem to have a copy on hand either (not really surprising - don't think I did anything more than proof subtitles on that one.)

It wasn't a total loss; the protagonist does eventually get his act together and own up to his failures as a human being. But there's precious little to appreciate before that... except for the ecchi overload, if you go for that sort of stuff.
Ironically enough, the original manga can be counted among the creator's tamest work; several other U-Jin manga have been adapted into actual h-anime.
