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.

Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan (UO) tells you a story about how one life must always go on, despite all those depressing circumstances of living a poor, sad, and lonely life in this accursed society. As someone who has been struggling with crippling depression for years, I really couldn't agree more with this miserable truth. 

And it is such a breath of fresh air to see how UO is a story that always does as it pleases to depict the miserable life of a grown-up adult when life truly isn't all about sunshine, and watching UO may help you to realize this sooner rather than later. read more

"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 read more

"A Beautiful Day in Uramichi’s Neighborhood"

''Adult life is already so outlandish. Now you just sit back and enjoy an anime that makes fun of the outlandish.''


Dark humor is hard to get right sometimes. It can often be misconstrued and become edgy or downright offensive, focused on punching down at certain groups instead of at difficult topics. When it’s done right, though, you get hilarious and thought provoking comedy, and that’s exactly what Life Lessons with Uramichi-Oniisan is. It’s a comedy that focuses on the struggles and absurdities of adult life as experienced by Uramichi, someone who is not only wrestling with the pressures of read more

Uramichi Onii-san is a very comedic anime with a HEAVY take on adulthood and life in general. What I expect to be a light hearted anime with some dark jokes here and there, turned out to be an anime that gave life lessons on how to try and handel your life. An anime that contains a genuinely great advice on how to try and help yourself even during the darkest times in your life. Let's talk about how great Uramichi Onii-san is.

Uramichi Onii-san is a story about 5 characters. A singer that lost her stardom. An introvertwith a heart of gold. A tsundere extrovert. read more
