SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist

Type: NSFW

Synopsis: In a world, where smut has been outlawed. Where phrases like “putting your yogurt tosser into the butter boat” is blaspheme. A world of prudes. A world of abstinence. Only one person will be able to bring back the raunchy. Follow our heroes on their trip towards an uncertain end. THIS SPRING, STAY TUNED FOR HIGH SCHOOL KIDS DISTRIBUTING DIRTY PICTURES AROUND SCHOOL CAMPUS AS A FORM OF PEACEFUL PROTEST.

Pros: Where has this been all my life. Why was I not informed of this anime sooner! What am I…what am I even doing here!? Shimoneta is half brilliant, half stupid, and all parts entertaining. The basic premise is that Japan has outlawed lewdness in all forms, forcing our protagonists to rebel through pervy behavior and inappropriate language. And I mean INAPPROPRIATE. I watched the English Dubb, because sometimes this world is a beautiful place. The words that came out of Ayeme Kajou might be THE filthiest collection of saying that I have ever hear. I did not know that the English language was capable of making that many euphemisms for sex, penises, or vaginas. Aside from the admittedly sophomoric charm of the show’s content (sex, masturbation, etc), the program does have a good message. Kajou’s group, SOX, fights in the name of personal freedom and sexual education. They don’t necessarily want to bring the government down, they just want to be explore the subject of sex without punished. Which is a good thing to say. Sexual education is important. And while issuing every teenager a box of sex toys and a porn subscription isn’t necessarily a good option, neither is pretending that lust doesn’t exist. The show argues as much. You have characters like Fuwa who are so ignorant about sex that they need to study the reproductive habits of bugs to better understand it. Or you get extreme cases like Anna, who becomes a sexual deviant after her first taste of physical romance because she has no background knowledge to help moderate her new urges. And as a side note, I liked the organic relationship that developed between Tanuchiki and Ayeme, especially since it’s based on comradery  and not idealization.

Cons: I mean, this is basically smut. Well, that’s too harsh. I’ll downgrade to softcore porn, not unlike American Pie or Not Another Teen Movie. You know, the classics. Aside from Ayeme’s amazingly dirty dialogue, a lot of the jokes come from Anna. After episode 3, Anna becomes a sex maniac who constantly tries to share her “love nectar” with Tanichiki after an accidental kiss. This girl is so turned on whenever she even sees Tanichiki that she immediately undergoes vasocongestion, causing her to secrete a combination of carbohydrates, amino acids, proteins, and other acids produced by the normal lactobacillus bacteria. Clean up in aisle 3, am I right! Normally I would say this goes overboard, but given the context of the show, it actually fits right in. I do kind of think that it’s messed up that Tanuchiki losses interest in Anna after her “pure image” is shattered, but the exaggerated nature of her character change makes it work. Story wise, I feel that the last arc involving Gathered Fabric is not very strong, and I didn’t really like them as antagonists. I would have been perfectly happy if the show had followed a scheme-by-scheme narrative.

Watch it?: Does a footlong taste better with mustard on it? (5/5)

B Gata H Kei – Yamada’s First Time

Type: Lascivious girl with dirty thoughts seeks sexual partner

Synopsis: O.K. Gatta be careful on this one. A young lady named Yamada dreams of being as…sexually liberated… as possible by…making love…with 100 partners. But she suffers from a mental block and needs someone to, let’s say, “pop” this “mental block.” She figures she can get it done easy by choosing a random loser the right person, thus bringing her classmate Kosuda into the mix. But for the life of her, she can’t get him to…………………..SEX, SEX, SEX,SEX, SEX, SEX, SEX,SEX, SEX, SEX, SEX, SEX,!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: I found this to be one of the more unique anime’s I’ve ever come across. Few anime’s deal with the topic of sex in such a candid manner. Sex is treated as something desired, but ultimately misunderstood. Yamada’s naivete masked by her arrogance is what really sells the show. She wants to have sex because she thinks it will gain her status, make her mature, and gain admiration. But she’s underestimated what a big step losing one’s virginity is, because she’s only 15. Then add her love interest Kosuda, who is even more confused toward the whole situation because he doesn’t know why Yamada is so aggressive. These two trying to dance the dance of love is hilarious. Will they? Won’t they? The show’s basically tries to answer the question: What would happen if two people in the anime universe tried to have sex with each other? The answer: Lots of false starts, lots of sex talk, and lots of frustrationation.

Cons:…You can’t watch it with the door open. For real. The show slightly borders a hentai (anime porn). Its not graphic per say, but the consistency of its dealings with sexy time won’t win it a tv spot on PBS any time soon. There’s also a rival character named Kanejo which doesn’t really add much to plot. She’s still funny, but coulda been left out with no serious degradation to the quality of the show.

Watch it?: Yeah, but with the DOORS CLOSED. (4/5)

MVP: Yamada
