I just tried to find the best mangas/mahwa etc etc. using the rating system. i found something funny with it. Lets show:

Tower of God Action, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Myste... 2010 9.22
Hagane no Renkinjutsushi Action, Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Fant... 2001 9.17
Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan Drama, Psychological, Romance, Seinen,... 2007 9.14
Orange (TAKANO Ichigo) Drama, Mystery, Romance, School Life, S... 2012 9.12
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (Novel) Action, Harem, Martial Arts, Romance, Sc... 2008 9.11
Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria (Novel) Action, Drama, Fantasy, Horror, Mystery,... 2009 9.11
Natsume Yuujinchou Comedy, Drama, Psychological, Shoujo, S... 2005 9.09
Skip Beat! Comedy, Drama, Romance, Shoujo, Slice... 2002 9.08
Onepunch-Man Action, Comedy, Sci-fi, Seinen, Supernatur... 2012 9.07
Molester Man Comedy, Doujinshi, Drama, Romance, Slic... 2004 9.

If we use this site to study how people in the world may feel about manga, based in the rating system... we see people want drama, romance, comedy, action the most so... Why it feels like people only cares about ecchi? i can't really understand that i dont know many of the Works in the TOP heck i went down to rating 8.8 and only BERSERK and GTO(dont know why people label maou yuusha as ecchi tho) are ecchi so its clear the top mangas aren't sex related, heck even the most posted series in the fórum arent ecchi(not counting the 18+ zone tho).

Are we people who aren't true to our feelings and want ecchi stuff while we can really love a series without it being ecchi related? I myself love Until death do us part and that one can't be seen as sex driven. i do like ubblerbatt and i could like it even if it didnt have any ecchi. I'd love One piece the same if Niko and nami didnt have those big tits.

... make me wonder why most of the mangas that become anime have to be sex related... pains my heart to see holy kight being animated while Otoyomegatari isn't.

Well...the site is visited by a number of girls/women. They are also part of the population that vote~ Not all women appreciate ecchi biggrin
Many of the titles on top reflect the current popular manga/novels. Most of them are pretty recent and are at the pinnacle of their popularity (regular releases/recently completed or animated~).

Berserk and GTO have been out for a while. GTO has been completed for a while. Berserk has irregular releases.

Sex related anime is probably a safe bet for studios to make and release. The target demographic otaku is well established. Studios know that their target demographic will buy it. People can just look at the poster/pictures and know what to expect. It's like safe quick money they can make...
Something like Otoyomegatari is pretty risky...If they were to make it as pretty as it deserves, it would probably cost more to animate. Also, there are not many animes that take place in the same setting, very similar characters, style, etc that a studio can use to predict how well the anime would do.

We just have a wide variety of people with different tastes on this site.

I'm my opinion, regardless of gender, the reason is simply that even tough a lot of people like Echi, there are also a lot of persons that hate it, and even among the people that like it they don't vote it highly because they accept that the plot is more important.

For example I really hate some manga that albeit having an interesting premise goes and ruins it becoming 70% pantyshots and the main character falling on the girls.

So people like me rate it with a 1 or 2 and since there are so much people like me, the ranking goes down.

It makes sense.

well pretty much what orion said.

You could say romance indicates drama so its pretty much a given that these 2 are together up there.
In addition only works that are executed well are added here, as for ecchi (as it isn't plot-related at all), the only thing that can be "executed well" is the steadily increasing number of girls, the male's inability to not trip and the panty's patterns I guess...
I'd like to add that the art of top-rated ones (not counting the novels that are really no medium to express ecchiness) that is really nice, while ecchi mangas (at least most of those I have read) have pretty much the same art style, nothing outstanding though...

in need of romance?
uncommon, sad, sweet
