A Boring World Where the Concept of 'Dirty Jokes' Doesn't Exist!
It's 16 years since the "Law for Public Order and Morals in Healthy Child-Raising" banned coarse language in the country. When Tanukichi Okuma enrolls in the country's leading elite public morals school he is soon "invited" (see - blackmailed) into the Anti-Societal Organization (SOX) by its founder, Ayame Kajō. As a result Tanukichi is forced into taking part in obscene acts of terrorism against the talented student council president (AKA - the girl he has a major crush on).
A Boring World Where the Concept of 'Dirty Jokes' Doesn't Exist! (Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai or Shimoseka for short) is adapted from Hirotaka Akagi light novels. The series, illustrated by Eight Shimotsuki, has been published by Shogakukan since July 2012 under their Gagaga Bunko imprint and to date has eight volumes available. A manga adaptation titled Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai: Man**-hen was written by Akagi and illustrated N' Yuzuki that has been running in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Blade magazine since May 2014.
This anime adaptation will be directed by Youhei Suzuki (The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat.) with series scripts by Masahiro Yokotani (Free! Eternal Summer, Riddle Story of Devil) at J.C. Staff. Masahiro Fujii (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, Hayate the Combat Butler, The Familiar of Zero) is adapting Eight Shimotsuki's original character designs. Akiyuki Tateyama is scoring the music with the production label Starchild. Jin Aketagawa is directing the sound, and GENCO is producing the anime. Sumire Uesaka will perform the show's ending theme "Inner Urge."
The show will premiere on Tokyo MX1 on July 4 at 1:30 a.m., and will air on the same time slot every Saturday.
