Principal Shinonome
Principal Template Image
Japanese Name: 校長先生
Romanized Name: Kōchō-sensei
English Name: Principal
First Appearance: "Nichijou Episode 1"
Japanese VA: Chou

Principal Shinonome is the bald principal of Tokisadame Highschool. While known for his old jokes and puns, unknown to most, he is a talented wrestler. In "Nichijou Episode 26", he is referred to as "Principal Shinonome", implying he may be a relative of Hakase. He is shown to be self-conscious of his lack of hair.


He wears a black suit with a long sleeved white shirt and a full Windsor tie knot. In "Nichijou Episode 6", where the principal wrestled with a deer, it is revealed that in the inside of his suit he wears a vest. It's unknown if the vest was worn everyday by him.


The revealed toupee

In episode 6, it is revealed that his 'hair' is actually a toupee, and that he is actually completely bald. He tried to have his hair grown back by going to a doctor.


He is rational, proved by him when thinking he wouldn't win if he climbed the statue again against the deer. He can't make a good joke as the students didn't laugh at the ceremony.

He is calm, except when talking about his hair.

A running gag in the show is the principal's paranoia over the vice principal trying to take his job.
