Shimoneta is an anime set in a world where the concept of dirty jokes doesn’t exist. Sex and other similar activities are harshly monitored by an authoritative force called the discipline squad or committee. In this boring world, there is one character who conforms to the new ways of modesty. Her name is Ayame Kajou and she’s not going to let anyone stop her free speech. So in this list, we’re going over the Top 10 anime that are similar to Shimoneta. Some of these won’t be available on different platforms, some are only available on Funimation or Netflix for example.
10. Kaguya Sama! Love Is War
Love Is War features 3 main characters and a story that is very engaging at the start. The story follows two characters in the student council who are both in love with each other. The only problem is that they are too shy to confess their love to the other one. Instead, they use tactics and other methods to draw out the other into confessing so they will not have to be the one who does it.
Kaguya Sama is a great anime and features the same setting as Shimoneta in terms of a school. They are both set in this location although Shimoneta takes place in all parts of Japan and the cities of Japan.
The two anime feature the same sort of chaotic atmosphere and scenes we see in Shimoneta so we would suggest you give Kaguya Sama Love Is War a go as it’s certainly worth the watch if you haven’t already watched the series. There are currently 2 seasons available on Funimation with English subtitles for both as well as a third season coming soon.
Ben-To follows the story of a small group of Highschool students who try to buy half-priced Ben-To. There’s a catch though, the Ben-to they want to buy is only half-priced to those who can afford to risk their lives to get it. Everyone from around this area of Japan comes to this store in order to fight over who gets the last few Ben-To’s, only the strongest and most cunning fighters will survive and get the last Ben-To’s that are available.
The story features many fight scenes and other sexual scenes which are similar to the ones in Shimoneta. Ben-To is a pretty underrated anime and many people don’t know about it so we would be happy if you could give it a go. The series is on Funimation with an English dub available.
8. Highschool DXD
Highschool DXD follows the story of a man who is killed by a woman as she takes his soul. He then is given a second chance by the demon goddess who grants him another life if he becomes her servant for her house, The House Of Gremory. The anime is a Harem type of anime and features one male main character with a whole host of other “demon babes” by his side.
The main character Issei Hyoudou aims “to be the Harem King” and wants nothing to stand in his way from getting this title, not even his queen Rias Gremory, who is in the House Of Gremory. There are 4 seasons on Funimation to watch, all with English dubs as well as the first season of this anime is on Netflix with an English dub available.
7. That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime
This anime is a fantasy-type anime and it follows the story of a man who is killed and reincarnated in another world as a slime named Rimuru. The series aired from October 2, 2018, to March 19, 2019, on Tokyo MX and other channels.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is a 2018 television anime series based on the light novel series written by Fuse. The series features 25 episodes and 5 OVA’s n the same season. All of these episodes have an English dub available.
6. Bikini Warriors
Bikini Warriors follows the story of the fantasy anime which is centred around a group of female warriors who work to find a new quest to go on. Although the episodes are very short, around 5 – 7 mins each they can still be very entertaining for many.
These scenes in Bikini Warriors are mostly ecchi and Harem types of anime and all of the main characters in Bikini Warriors are female. The group goes on various adventures and gets into all kinds of trouble. This show is a hit or miss and is available on Funimation to watch. There are 12 episodes available on Funimation which has an English dub.
5. Rosario + Vampire
Rosario Vampire is a very popular and memorable anime that came out in 2008. It is centred around a school only for monsters in the human world who appear to be human in their appearance but who are actually monsters in real life. Young Tskune accidentally gets on the wrong bus one day on his way to school and gets taken to a new school just for monsters, however, the students are all in their human form so he doesn’t think anything is out of the ordinary.
Tskune then meets Moka and falls in love with her, however, it’s then revealed that Moka is a vampire and wants Tskune’s blood as his scent is intoxicating and attractive to her. The story then follows Tskune trying to fit in and not get his real identity (the human one) revealed to all the other monsters. Moka finds out he is a human but goes along with it and protects him. Rosario + Vampire certainly features that ecchi and Hamre type anime that appears in Shimoneta and it makes up quite a lot of the scenes. If you haven’t already tried this anime we suggest you do, you won’t regret it.
4. How Heavy Are The Dumbbells You Lift?
The story of How Heavy Are The Dumbbells You Lift? is very simple, to say the least, and it’s easy to follow. It is centred around 17-year-old Sakura Hibiki or just “Hibiki” as she is referred to by her friend who wants to lose some weight before the start of summer so she has a much better chance of securing a boyfriend during this time.
The story really isn’t that clever and it’s not very well written but it is very fun to watch. It’s about all the ways you can exercise and get fit not just in the gym but at home. She makes some friends as a result and they work out together. She also only joins at the start because she has an obvious crush on her personal trainer but later realizes that she enjoys working out. It certainly has some of that ecchi and harem type of anime scene in there and this is evident all the way throughout, all that action is abundant in How Heavy Are The Dumbbells You Lift?
We’ve covered D-Frag on our Top 10 Slice Of Life Anime To Watch On Funimation article but if you’re not familiar with this anime it follows the story of a school club centered around game creation. it’s about Kazama Kenji, who for some reason “thinks he is a delinquent” until he “and his gang” come across a group of girls that are more “outrageous” than he is.
He is, and I quote “Shanghaied into joining their club, what will happen to his everyday life from that point on?” It’s quite a fast-paced anime and it is easy to start watching and get into. There is currently 1 season available on Funimation with an English dub available too.
2. The Fruits Of Grisaia
The Fruits Of Grisaia follows the story of a youth centre guarded for the protection of a group of girls who are special. They are protected and are called the chosen fruit. Our main character, Yuuji Kazami now joins this school and is taken aback by their personal stories as they reveal to him how they came to be staying at this sanctuary in the first place.
Yuuji must protect the girls from any attackers as they annoy and question him daily. The series shares some of the Harem and echi type scenes we get from Shimoneta and we can see they are somewhat similar. It’s quite a hard anime to begin watching and get into, however, the ending is very good and it’s very emotional.
If you enjoyed this list please don’t forget to like and share it, that would really help us out. For now, you can read some of our similar articles that are below.
1. Highschool Of Dead
If you liked Shimoneta then you’re sure to love Highschool Of The Dead which is partly one of those types of Harem anime, with one central main male character, there’s certainly some of that action. The story follows a group of Highschool students during you guessed it, yes a Zombie apocalypse.
The group gets trapped at the school and has to survive as they evade Zombies and get from one safe place to another. The story features a lot of that Harem and sexual scenes we saw in Shimoneta.
They are certainly featured about the same amount of time in the anime, it’s a great anime and if you haven’t given it a go we’d suggest you do. Highschool of the dead is available on Funimation and there is only one season available with an English dub. You can read our article on season 2 of Highschool Of The Dead here.
