This is a characters list of Japanese manga and anime series Crayon Shin-chan created by Yoshito Usui. Funimation head writer Jared Hedges states that the Americanization of the school was done to use the characters as an outlet for American humor and references while keeping the show location in Japan. The Rose Class is a class handled by Ume Matsuzaka. A recurring theme in the show is that Rose class is always in competition with Sunflower Class in activities such as Baseball, Soccer, Trekking, etc. Another recurring joke about Rose Class is that whenever they have a competition, they would always reveal a member of the class with exceptional talent in that field.
