After a fatal encounter with a truck, Takafumi Takaoka's uncle, Yousuke "Ojisan" Shibazaki, lies comatose for 17 years. When he finally regains consciousness, Ojisan begins to ramble in a foreign tongue and reveals that he had been transported to a magical world called Gran Bahamal. Takafumi dismisses his uncle's claims as nonsense until an incantation makes a cup of water hover in the air. In a flash of brilliance, the pair creates a YouTube channel to showcase Ojisan's magical abilities.

The responsibility now falls on Takafumi's shoulders to acquaint Ojisan with everything that has transpired during his absence, including getting him up to speed with the internet, new technology, and surprisingly, the outcome of the '90s console war—the result of which was especially distressing for a hardcore SEGA fan. With Ojisan's wisdom from his other world experiences, they grow their YouTube channel and tackle online comments and trolls. The journey of this uncle-nephew duo promises to be anything but conventional.

Isekai Ojisan was released on Blu-ray and DVD in three volumes from September 28, 2022, to March 24, 2023.

This is definitely one of the best anime I’ve seen in the past six months. I might only compare it in terms of enjoyment and satisfaction to "Dungeons meshi." I truly believe this anime is one of the best when it comes to comedy, adventure, and isekai.

It’s important to remember that comedy is very subjective; each person will like a certain type of comedy, while others may not. Additionally, it’s evident that this anime focuses on what happens after a long fantasy adventure, rather than during the adventure itself, which makes it understandable why many question if it’s really an isekai anime. But you know ...

Well, the series finally finished. It's difficult when you're covering comedy because comedy will hit differently for different people, though I guess that's true of drama to some extent, at least if we're talking about the really sad stuff. All that is to say that, yeah, this got a few chuckles out of me, but it still felt pretty one-note throughout. That's not a bad thing because it's a pretty good note - I like the idea that we're catching up with an isekai protagonist after he's returned to his world, and that he retains his powers. It's silly and fun, and the side characters ...

The label "Isekai" has become synonymous with " it gets me an anime deal" in Japan or something; because without it, this series would have not gotten one.

This series was so bad that the TV network had to lie about the delays to protect the studio.

Reflecting on the title, if you change the title to: "I Found Out My Uncle is a Wizard," absolutely nothing changes. The adventures in the "other world" could easily be substituted with mundane occurrences from the uncle's life as a young wizard, and the impact would remain unchanged.

It's a missed opportunity for meaningful storytelling and a disappointing execution ...
