The summer anime series Shimoneta: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist made its premiere earlier this month and now the fifth episode is set to land on August 1st. That has distribution partner King Records bring out a slightly longer than normal promo for it with some amusing censoring that makes you wonder what’s really going on with the show. The series got its simulcast pickup as well from FUNimation and the show is landing on their service on Saturday’s at 2pm ET for their users while also showing up a week or so later on Hulu.
The series is directed by Youhei Suzuki based on the scripts by Masahiro Yokotoani and with character designs by Masahiro Fuji. The series is being animated by JC Staff. The official site has now updated with a look at the cast, expanding it a bit with more of the supporting characters. The cast members announced for it include Shizuka Ishigami as Ayame Kajō, Yūsuke Kobayashi as Tanukichi Okuma, Miyu Matsuki as Anna Ninomiya, Saori Goto as Hyōka Fuwa, Satomi Arai as Otome Saotome, Kenta Miyake as Raiki Gōriki, Yui Horie as Kosuri Onigashira, Sumire Uesaka as Oboro Tsukimigusa and Yui Ogura as Binkan-chan.
The light novel series comes from Hirotaka Akagi under the Gagaga Bunko imprint with illustrations by Eight Shimotsuki. It began back in 2012 and has seven volumes published so far, as well as a manga adaptation from earlier this year. No details about who is behind the production or involved in the creative side has been revealed yet.
Plot concept: 16 years after the “Law for Public Order and Morals in Healthy Child-Raising” banned coarse language in the country, Tanukichi Okuma enrolls in the country’s leading elite public morals school and is soon invited into the Anti-Societal Organization (SOX) by its founder, Ayame Kajou. As a member blackmailed into joining by Ayame, Tanukichi ends up taking part in obscene acts of terrorism against the talented student council president Anna (for whom Tanukichi has a crush on).
