Shinnosuke Nohara (野原 しんのすけ, Nohara Shinnosuke) (野原 新之助)
Voiced by: Akiko Yajima (1992-2018), Yumiko Kobayashi (2018-present), Kath Soucie (Vitello), Diane Michelle (Phuuz), Laura Bailey (Funimation), Gil Jopling (Amazon Spin-off)
A five-year-old boy in kindergarten and the leader of the Kasukabe Defence Force. He is Hiroshi and Misae's son and Himawari's brother and is nicknamed "Shin-chan". His favorite things are chocolate biscuits and the characters "Action Kamen" and "Quantum Robot", while he dislikes green bell peppers. Like his mother, he is gluttonous, stubborn, and prone to imagining things, and, like his father, likes to flirt with girls. Unlike his parents, he is outspoken and often insensitive towards others and obsessed with humor related to the buttocks, which makes them uncomfortable. Due to his age, he cannot read, write, or speak properly, so he often misreads and mispronounces words. He often indulges in age-inappropriate jokes, mostly scatological jokes and pulling down his pants to reveal his buttocks and/or genitals and dancing. Despite his crude nature, he genuinely loves his family and shows instances of selfless kindness and maturity beyond his years, such as saving a frog from a truck despite it ruining his last set of clean clothes and giving Masao his change despite knowing that Misae will scold him later. He is known as Shin-chan Nohara in the Vitello, Phuuz and Funimation dubs. Julian Ryall referred to him as the "Japanese Bart Simpson".[2]
