A Horrifying Dystopic Future – Shimoneta (Super NSFW)

Imagine if you will, a dystopia of the worst kind. Typically people imagine a society with high government oversight, totalitarian rule and little to no individual freedoms. Freedoms we as modern individuals take for granted. Freedom of speech, freedom to choose who to love, how to love, what to love. Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai or SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist is a dystopia that is satirical but also very plausible. In this world, Japan has become the most moral society in the world due to their ban on anything remotely perverse or erotic including dirty jokes or “Shimoneta.” This show follows an activist/erotic terrorist and her organization’s efforts to bring back the right for someone to say dirty jokes and not live in a world where your very speech is monitored and observed. The greatest way I’ve seen this show described is “V for Vagina,” but instead of Hugo Weaving we have this hilarious woman doing the Ojou-sama laugh. (Watch for the volume and please be warned of the language and images to be used further in the article.)

So we begin our story with Tanukichi Okuma, mild mannered protagonist of the show and childhood friend of Anna Nihikinomiya as he begins attending her school, rated as the top public moral school. Anna is daughter of one of the highest ranking government officials and Student Council president and so unbelievably naive and innocent even among this world where no one processes what the genitalia of the opposite sex looks like. Part of this is because beforehand, Japan burned and destroyed all pornography, erotic material, and even “that pool” which is the Japanese equivalent of “that black leather couch.” After this, citizens were forced to where Peace Makers or PMs at all time to ensure that no one spoke any dirty words or performed any hand gestures that were provocative ranging from “churning butter” to drawing doujiins. Enter Blue Snow, eroterrorist supreme who goes and intervenes throwing a number of perverted pamphlets around at the train station Tanukichi is at while en route to school. Turns out she’s really Ayame Kajou, VP of the Student Council and Anna’s BFF.

After this, Tanukichi finds out that Ayame/Blue Snow is less of a terrorist and more of just a very dirty minded superhero. A superhero who’s power is to say dirty jokes for 3 minutes a day thanks to an override code her former government official father provided, but still its better than nothing. Being convinced that she’s not that bad/being blackmailed into joining her activities, they move on as part of SOX, an organization dedicated to bringing back a world where you can say whatever dirty jokes you wanted to, choke the chicken, or flick the bean as much as your heart desires. Most of the current generation of high schoolers however have no idea what even is dirty, and as such many of the activities SOX performs such as showing two flies mating, or spreading hentai drawn by a pervert using her mouth (so it didn’t trigger the PMs) are largely not understood. In addition to all this, Anna falls for our good Tanukichi after an accidental kiss and falls hard. This is the cause of a number of references and jokes from this show after her love hits borderline rape and just overall disturbing activities such as providing Tanukichi with cookies baked with her “love nectar.” This of course lead to the internet making other love nectar flavored memes.

After a few activities, SOX forms alliances with other erotic terrorist organizations through Japan to bring about a very friendly form of revolution where we just have people kinda back to the same mindset we are now where I can tell you a dirty joke and not go to prison. Of course, people have to ruin things and we enter “Gathered Fabric” and their leader “White Peak” who is an example of why we can’t have nice things.

This guy is the uncool type of terrorist. Instead of simply throwing around porn and pretty much just being a harmless prankster, this asshole is just a dirty pervert obsessed with wearing people’s underwear. Beyond that he goes about kidnapping, holding people at gunpoint, and just are overall a bunch of dicks. After SOX defeats them by utilizing a plot centered on Anna’s bloodhound skills and godlike powers and Tanukichi’s scent as bait, SOX’s main two members admit their feelings for one another and head off into the sunset as not the heroes Japan deserves, but the heroes that Japan needs.

Alrighty then, lets throw something out there immediately. I did not cover anywhere near as much of the funny that is in this show. Opposed to the other dirty comedy that came out the same time as this, Prison School, this is a very balanced and funny show. Prison School was borderline (sometimes actual) porn but this was a lighthearted show that ended with a great moment of the main characters actually getting together and listened to the cheering fans. My only complaints really are that a betrayal happens and is basically ignored in the end, and that the show is likely not getting a second season as unfortunately the VA for Anna died of lymphoma soon after this anime was released. Beyond the great comedic timing and plot, the animation for this show was also top notch and the intro and outros will have you Ojou-sama laughing like a maniac. So seriously, give this a shot and leave a comment or a like and maybe your perverted terrorist Senpai will give you a head pat!
