August Anime Challenge: Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai (Censored)

Our challenge this month is an ecchi anime called Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai (Censored), English name: Shimoneta: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist abbreviated by its fanbase as Shimoneta. Shimoneta is a Japanese word for “vulgar slang”, “dirty joke,” “blue joke,” or “erotic topic.” This anime is based on the light novel written by Hirotaka Akagi and illustrated by Eito Shimotsuki. This series first aired in 2015 and was produced by J.C. Staff under the direction of Youhei Suzuki.

The series is set 16 years after Japan’s “Law for Public Order and Morals in Healthy Child-Raising” which banned coarse language. Tanukichi Okuma enrols in the country’s leading elite public morals school and is blackmailed into joining an obscene terrorist organization hellbent on the destruction of everything that his new school stands for.

Please note the challenge is Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai’ censored version as it is funnier than the uncensored version and we have quite a few fanatiks that recommended the censored version as the best one to watch for the challenge.

Konnichiwa Minna, it is week 2 of our Shimoneta anime challenge. This week we bring you an ecchi fantasy recommendation with harem and reverse isekai elements. The anime was based on a great visual novel called:

Shuffle!

Ten years ago, the gates to both the realm of the Gods and Demons were opened, and residents from both these realms started to immigrate to Earth. Now, gods, demons and humans study together in schools, even live together in neighbourhoods. Rin Tsuchimi is a student at such a mixed school. Lucky (or unlucky we should say) for Rin, he has been chosen as a marriage candidate for two fellow students – Nerine, the Demon princess, and Sia, Princess of the Gods, making him a potential ruler of either the Gods or Demons one day. This all happened because of an event in the past since he met both girls before when he was a young kid…

If Rin’s life is not complicated enough a few more ladies are thrown in the mix. There is Kaede Fuyou, the girl he has been living with since his parents died when he was very young. Kaede believes it is her duty to look after Rin and really loves him. Then there is the beautiful Asa Shigure, a tomboy but with a weak constitution and a classmate of both Rin and Kaede. Also, there is Mayumi Thyme, a half-human, half-demon girl, and the sweet-toothed Kareha, one of the Gods and a real daydreamer. These girls together with Nerine and Sia are all interested in Rin, and he really must learn to ‘shuffle’ his life to accommodate everyone and keep them happy. Then of course is a little problem with which princess to choose. Just who will Rin end up with?

We hope you enjoy the challenge and the recommendation. Have a super sugoi week.

Agent Aika

Agent Aika takes place in the not so distant future, with 95% of the landmass drowned by the vast ocean after a great disaster. As a result of most of the world being underwater, the profession of choice is that of Salvager – high tech scavengers that comb sunken cities for loot. Aika Sumeragi is one such Salvager who works for a small company run by a father and daughter team. Unfortunately, the company isn’t exactly successful, and money is needed desperately. To help, Aika accepts the very dangerous job of acquiring an artefact called Lagu for a hefty sum. Aika’s partner and best friend, the boss’ daughter Aida Rion joins Aika on this mission. Aika also has the added advantage of a special bustier, and when it is activated, she becomes a superhuman who can take on whole armies by herself Part of the plot is Aika and Rion being captured by Rudolf Hargen, an over-sexed man who wants the Lagu and Aika (and just about every pretty girl) for himself. He commands a huge battleship manned only by droves of cute girls in mini-skirts.

Week 4 August 23 to 29, 2021

Episode 10 – 12

Konnichiwa Minna, it is week 3 of our Shimoneta anime challenge. This week we bring you harem monsters in our last recommendation of the month:

Monster Musume

In Monster Musume, we meet Kimihito Kurusu, an average Japanese student, with a part-time job. That is where normal ends and the fun begin, you see it just so happens that a Lamia ( a half-snake, half-human woman) named Mia moves in. You see, when Monsters finally became known to our world, “hosts” were selected, individuals or families who would act as caregivers for monsters seeking to enter the human world and learn about our society. Kimihito became one of the hosts. Mia is instantly taken with him as he is the first human that didn’t shun her simply because of her snake half and she renamed him Darling-kun. ‘Darling-kun lands in all kinds of situations with her and soon more monster girl beauties are added into the mix. And there is also Mrs. Smith, their caseworker with her twisted sense of humour to deal with.

This anime is not just an ecchi harem, it even deals with social issues like racism, human nature and how people of different cultures coexist in the world. It is a deep anime if you look beyond the fan service and humour. We hope you enjoy our recommendation and the rest of the challenge. Have a super sugoi week.
