In the studio of the morning childrens' show "Together with Mama," a crew of miserable adults prepares their facades of amicable smiles and cheerful exteriors to educate a group of innocent preschoolers. In the middle of it stands Uramichi Omota, a former gymnast who can't help but bring the kids down to earth by revealing the harsh and depressing reality of adulthood, even in front of the rolling cameras.

Behind the scenes, Uramichi's much-desired peace is disturbed by his two bothersome juniors who work as the show's rabbit and bear mascots and singers: Utano Tadano, a woman who only wishes to get married; and Iketeru Daga, a handsome man with a crass sense of humor. From smoking and exercising to nihilistic outbursts, everyone's big brother Uramichi always brings up the not-so-moral side to his life lessons.

"Hai Domo, kids! Let's all come together and do a charismatimgly cute children's show to the audience! A--B--C, A--B--C, A..to...Z!"
*switches off the TV* So that's your real shell of a dark personality huh?

Uramichi Oniisan can just be summed up in these one-word caricatures: (simply *chef's kiss*) amazing, comical, wholesome (if you understood the show's intents), magnifiquely magnificent (all-around). It's "Expectations vs. Reality" in the most dark, crude stance of a satirical parody, or as I like to call it in a better light: "Adulting/Adulthood" the Animation. It's OK because the "OK Boomers" young generation will absolutely not understand how #Relatable this show is to ...

Mixed Feelings
I'm not one to watch seasonal or recent anime (call me a hipster), but boredom and free time led me to check this anime out after seeing a couple of scenes online.
I expected a mediocre comedy anime...
And I kinda got it? I don't watch many from this genre, but to be honest it was nothing unexpected.
Went into this trying to find something to fry my brain for a bit, forget about my troubles, you know? What I got was more worry for my future, of aging, and being able to do nothing to change stuff. Uramichi's ramblings when he's dejected are probably not ...

The premise sounded cool: a dark comedy about the mental problems of adulthood at 30+, things such as the loss of hope, dreams; the ennui and anhedonia; being explained with a smile on a kid show to prepare the stunned little brats for the reality ahead. Instead it's all about the characters whining off stage about their trivial normie "problems" like TFW no GF. Not being married yet. Not having enough friends. Stressing about what family or strangers think of you being single. Being alone, and especially (oh god no, not THAT...) being alone on X-mas.

Maybe this is what people consider to be real adult ...
