Shimoneta is abbreviated as Shimoseka in Japan. Hirotaka Akagi wrote the series and Eito Shimotsuki illustrated. Shogakukan published eleven volumes since 2016 under the Gagaga name. A manga called Shimoneta that contained art by Yuzuki N serialized in Mag Garden’s shonen manga magazine Monthly Comic Blade in 2014, March. Due to such popularity, the anime adaptation aired in 2015 under JC Staff. The anime continued for 12 episodes.
An anime television adaptation made by J. C Staff aired from July to September 2015. Shimoneta can also be the Japanese word for “vulgar slang,” “dirty joke,” “blue joke,” or “erotic topic.”
Shimoneta is licensed by Madman Entertainment, which is located in Australia and New Zealand. It is also cast on AnimeLab.

Shimoneta Season One: In Review
The plot of the Shimoneta Season 2 follows the acts of the Japanese government as it hardens laws related to immoral activity. Banned acts include immoral language or distribution of inappropriate material in the country. Citizens wear high tech collars that monitor everything they do, called Peace Makers. These Peace Makers analyze the wearers words and movements to make sure they are all in accordance with the law.
The plot follows high school student Tanikichi Okuma, who enters the lead county’s public morals school. He attempts to reunite with his crush, Anna Nishikinomiya, who is also the student council president. However, he quickly finds himself entangled with a perverted terrorist who goes by the name Blue Snow.
While there have been attempts to fool the device and defy the government, they all resulted in futility. However, hope exists that people will break free. Many attempts are thwarted quickly, however clever. In Shimoneta season 2, fans believe that there may be an uprising of some sort, more so than in season 1, against the government.

Shimoneta Season 2 Characters
Tanukichi Okuma: The son of a terrorist named Zenjuro. His father was caught distributing illegal material as a protest against the government. His father’s reputation has made him infamous even among other students at the morality school. Tanukichi’s interest in the illegal heightened ever since he was a boy. Anna, his girlfriend, is a morally perfect character. Tanukichi is essentially forced to act just as she does due to the law in order to become her boyfriend. However, once he enters the school, he meets Ayame, and complication ensues. Between the two girls, our main character is torn.
Ayame Kajou: Ayame is a rebellious daughter of the now disgraced Diet Officer. She dreams of a day when the anti-profanity laws lift. She works nonstop to share her tactics with others under her alternate ego Blue Snow. As vice president at the morality school Ayame lives a double life.
After meeting Tanukichi, she forms a group with him to rebel against the government. Her feelings eventually develop for Tanukichi. Her father, a rebel as well, taught her how to disable her PM device for three minutes every twenty four hours. This comes in handy for any rebellious act she wishes to commit.
Anna Nishikinomiya: Anna, Tanukichi’s childhood crush, is the president of the Student Council. Similarly, he is a straight-arrow, law abiding citizen. She has taken a vow to reveal Blue Snow’s identity before the entire institution gains a bad name.
Otome Saotome: Otome is an artistic prodigy. While extraordinarily gifted, she remains unmotivated and despondent. However, Otome does not value popularity as her peers do. She later joins the movement Blue Snow has started. She utilizes her skills to create illegal content for the world to see, by painting with her mouth instead of her hands.
