One of the many anime acquired during the Anime Limited 12 Days of Christmas sale. This one ended up in the wrong format so it had to be re-ordered via Zavvi so it arrived faster than AL’s own sale.

SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist (Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai) is a 2015 anime series animated by studio J.C.Staff and published by King Records Company Ltd. The anime is based on the light novel series written by Hirotaka Akagi and illustrated by Eight Shimotsuki.
The anime was one of the bigger titles that people were watching during the Summer 2015 season, which Funimation also dubbed and released onto home video. As Funimation have the UK & Ireland rights also, they distributed the series in the UK under their name similarly to No-Rin and OVERLORD. The series is also one of the few anime released with an 18 rating uncut and uncensored for its sexual themes.
The Funimation UK release contains the complete series (episodes 1 to 12) across two Blu-ray discs. The audio options available include the original Japanese audio with English subtitles and the English dub. The discs themselves are the same as the Funimation US version, with the subtitles being locked during playback. The Blu-ray regions are compatible with both A & B players.

Plot Synopsis (via Funimation):
In a world where dirty jokes don’t exist, where the mere utterance of a ***** word will thrust you into jail, a hero must rise up as a symbol for all things lewd and rude. The mysterious Blue Snow, proudly wearing panties on her face and armed with naughty images and a foul mouth, will bring the art of dirty jokes back! With her erotic terrorist group, SOX, she will press against the stiff authority of the oppressive Decency Squad and step on their hard and overbearing rules.
Tanukichi Okuma is the son of an imprisoned ero-terrorist. Rather than following in his father’s footsteps, he plans to stay on the track of morality and wholesomeness. Just like his dream girl, Anna Nishikinomiya, he attends Japan’s most moral school. But after an encounter with Blue Snow, his virtuous plans are ****** and he finds himself entangled with SOX. Will the pursuit of smut tarnish what hope he has with the pure Anna, or will he *** around, stimulated by the panty wearing deviant and her filthy mouth?
