Anime Spotlight - SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist

by Anthony Foronda,
Broadcast Begins July 4, 2015 (JST)


SOX MEMBERS ONLY Release us from (sexual) oppression! Dirty jokes should have civilian rights! Destroy standards of decency! You are the ____________th SOX member. Notice to members: pe__iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis


Due to the approval of the "Fostering Healthy Standards of Decency Act" 16 years ago, sexual expressions have been completely eradicated from Japan. Tanukichi Okuma enters a school famed for being one of the most disciplined in the nation, where his personal idol upperclassman Anna is the student body president. There, a perrorist calling herself "Blue of the Snowfield" got hold of his secret, and he ends up becoming a member of SOX, a group of dirty joke terrorists.......! Is it a prison? Or is it a harem?
