Shomin Sample Season 2 Story
People often lie for several reasons, some good some bad. They lie either to save them from a complex situation, to avoid perplexities and what not. However, it is a known fact truth surfaces one day Or another and someone cannot hide from the truth forever. The shadow of lies is just a temporary solution that is bound to fade away someday. And every action has its own consequences and one must face the consequences of their actions one day or another. Sometimes lies lead to a more complicated situation and such a fate is shared by Kimito Kagurazaka, the individual whose life we get to follow in the anime series Shomin Sample. Kimito is a “commoner” in the world of Shomin Sample.
He is a first-year high school student and is 15 years old. He was living a simple day to day to life with no major thing happening to him just like another average high schoolboy. However, his life turned upside down after an incident. He didn’t even have a single clue as to what was going to happen to him. He got abducted and had no clue by whom and why. Later on, he found himself taken to an academy named Seikain Jogakkou. However, that academy is no ordinary academy. It is a very distinctive academy and completely secluded from society. No commoner has a single hunch about the existence of such an academy.
However, the reason behind this seclusion is to keep it’s students away from any kind of contact with the general population. Since the students, there are no ordinary people. Each of the students which are all females are from esteemed families, families that are respected and hold a deep influence. This academy’s main motive is to turn their young students into perfect “Ojou-samas,” or women of high etiquette and superior lifestyle. Kimito was brought into this academy without his consent despite being a commoner to fulfil a certain purpose. The academy has begun a new activity for the sake of it’s students. In this activity, the students must interact with a commoner so that they can be aware of the world that surrounds them outside the academy and can avoid any traumatizing or humiliating experience. To initiate this activity, the academy found Kimito as the perfect candidate for being the commoner for the students to interact to gain experience in dealing with the average population and society in general. What made him the perfect candidate is the rumour that he holds a deep fetish for the muscles of men which is nothing but a lie spread by his childhood friend, Eri.
Kimito finding himself in the situation he was in quickly learns that he will have to play by the rumour and act like he actually likes men’s muscles and if he fails to do so a nightmarish fate awaits him where he will be castrated if he could not match the requirements of the academy. So he decides to prevent such a thing to happen in reality. But as he spends more time in the academy he soon learns that keeping his false facade going and keeping his lie intact will be far more difficult than he initially thought. He lands on the conclusion when he encounters and interacts with the odd students of the academy. Like Aika Tenkuubashi, who holds nothing back and speaks whatever she wants to even if it’s nonsense. Then Karen Jinryou, a beautiful young girl whose father is a samurai she carries a sword on her waist almost all the time and aspires to defeat Kimito one day. Then there is Hakua Shiodome who is a genius and Reiko Arisugawa who appears as a perfect student but deep inside is delusional about one-day marrying Kimito. All of them are a part of the Commoner Club, the club where Kimito teaches the ways of a commoner.
