The upcoming anime from Studio Blanc, Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan has a new key visual. The anime will begin airing on July 5, 2021.
The new Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan key visual features the main cast:
Previously, the official website released information about the PV, as well as the cast and staff. Hiroshi Kamiya stars as the main character, Uramichi Omota. In addition to Kamiya, the anime features a lot of the big names from the industry, including Mamoru Miyano and Hanae Natsuki.
Nobuyoshi Nagayama (Happy Sugar Life) is directing the anime. Yusuke Shibata and Mizuki Takahashi are doing character designs. Kei Haneoka is in charge of the music, while Touko Machida is doing series composition.
Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan is based on a manga by Gaku Kuze. It started publishing in 2017 and currently has over 30 chapters. The story follows Uramichi, a 31-year old children’s TV host. However, he is anything but a happy host you’d expect to see. While his coworkers enjoy their work, Uramichi is too cynical and burn out.
Kodansha, English licensor for the manga, describes it as:
How did the cynical Uramichi end up hosting a TV show for small children? And how long is the studio going to let him keep teaching the kids the sorrow and exhaustion of life instead of, say, the ABCs? This dark comedy manga started as a webcomic and became a bestseller across Japan — with an anime coming soon!
