The light novel series comes from Hirotaka Akagi under the Gagaga Bunko imprint with illustrations by Eight Shimotsuki. It began back in 2012 and has multiple volumes published so far, as well as a manga adaptation.

Plot concept: 16 years after the “Law for Public Order and Morals in Healthy Child-Raising” banned coarse language in the country, Tanukichi Okuma enrolls in the country’s leading elite public morals school and is soon invited into the Anti-Societal Organization (SOX) by its founder, Ayame Kajou. As a member blackmailed into joining by Ayame, Tanukichi ends up taking part in obscene acts of terrorism against the talented student council president Anna (for whom Tanukichi has a crush on).
