Shimoneta Season 2 Characters
Here are the brief descriptions of all the main characters of Shimoneta Season 2.
Tanukichi Okuma (奥間 狸吉, Okuma Tanukichi), Voiced by Yūsuke Kobayashi; Josh Grelle: son of Zenjuro, an infamous filthy joke terrorist who was jailed by Japanese moral authorities years ago after attempting to throw condoms over the Diet building in violation of moral rules. According to his peers, he graduated from a public intermediate school with the “lowest morality score.”
Ayame Kajou (華城 綾女, Kajō Ayame) / Blue Snow (雪原の青, Setsugen no Ao), Voiced by Shizuka Ishigami; Jamie Marchi: The student council vice-president and the daughter of a disgraced former Diet member who unsuccessfully battled against the public morals rules. Outside of school, Ayame dresses up as the perverted terrorist “Blue Snow,” disseminating semi-pornographic pamphlets and yelling nasty jokes in defiance of Japanese moral authorities.
Anna Nishikinomiya (アンナ・錦ノ宮), Voiced by Miyu Matsuki; Monica Rial: Tanukichi’s childhood infatuation, the student council president, has charged him with tracking down Blue Snow before she jeopardises the school’s principles. Tanukichi unintentionally kisses her, and she develops an obsessive yandere-like infatuation for him.

Otome Saotome (早乙女 乙女, Saotome Otome), Voiced by Satomi Arai; Brittney Karbowski: An artistic genius whose paintings have won accolades and are shown around the school, despite the fact that she appears to be bored by the limelight. She blackmails Tanukichi into becoming her “pet” for a period after accidentally seeing him changing out of a Blue Snow outfit and then joins SOX to learn how to draw sexual artwork after being tutored on the issue by Ayame. Because her PM can detect every inappropriate movement her hands make, she trained herself to sketch by gripping tools with her mouth in order to escape its sensor.
Hyouka Fuwa (不破 氷菓, Fuwa Hyōka), Voiced by Saori Gotō; Mikaela Krantz: Tanukichi’s student and aspiring scientist who is preoccupied with unraveling the enigma of how infants are genuinely produced, as Japanese moral authorities have suppressed everything referring to sex education beyond broad generalities. Frequently gathers insects in order to examine their reproductive behavior. She has a keen sense of observation. Not an official member of SOX, she assists them on occasion since she is aware (to some extent) of its members’ identities.
Raiki Gouriki (轟力 雷樹, Gōriki Raiki), Voiced by Kenta Miyake; David Wald: Treasurer of the student council with the stance and manner of a gorilla, however, he despises bananas.

Kosuri Onigashira (鬼頭 鼓修理, Onigashira Kosuri), Voiced by Yui Horie; Lara Woodhull: The daughter of Keisuke and a SOX fangirl who carries several weapons (such as air guns and electric stuns) and manipulates others, even her allies, using strategies she learnt from romance and shojo comics. Ayame allows her to participate in part because her haircut resembles the tip of a penis.
Matsukage Nishikinomiya (錦ノ宮 祠影, Nishikinomiya Matsukage), Voiced by Hajime Iijima; Ben Bryant: Anna’s father was a member of the National Diet who was the main force behind the initial public morality regulations that transformed Japan into a “very moral nation.” He exploits morality as a pretext to establish total control over the country.
Sophia Nishikinomiya (ソフィア・錦ノ宮, Sofia Nishikinomiya), Voiced by Sayaka Ohara; Lydia Mackay: Anna’s mother, who is pushing for tougher public morality regulations than are now in place in order to establish an ideal society in which Anna’s virginity is almost unaffected.
Oboro Tsukimigusa (月見草 朧, Tsukimigusa Oboro), voiced by: Sumire Uesaka; Megan Vander Pluym: Matsukage trains a school prefect to follow a stringent moral code that focuses on preserving Anna from all possible immoral influences, even basic stuff like basketball hoops and toilet paper rolls.

A “high-class pervert” who leads the group “Gathered Fabric” to steal various types of undergarments across Japan, he ends up clashing with SOX because Ayame believes he is tarnishing the group’s reputation by carrying out terrorist acts such as hijacking public transportation under the guise that Gathered Fabric is an ally of SOX.
Base Black (手の黒, Tehen no Kuro, lit. “Black Hand”), Voiced by Sho Hayami; Christopher Sabat: An ero-terrorist who appears in the anime’s last episode. He personally knew and worked alongside Zenjuro and planned to unlock a secret vault filled with erotic treasures using an artifact that was passed down to Tanukichi. He gathered the main cast to a resort via false invitations and challenged them to a duel for the artifact through Yakyuken.
Binkan (びんかんちゃん, Binkan-chan), Voiced by Yui Ogura: An anime original character. Binkan is just an innocent bystander who is often nearby whenever SOX performs another act of ero-terrorism, staring at their latest handiwork. She is hardly acknowledged by the main characters until the final episode where it is shown that she is a perfect in training under the leadership of Oboro. Binkan’s real name is never mentioned; her nickname roughly translates to “little sensitive (girl).”
