Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan is based on a manga by Gaku Kuze. It started publishing in 2017 in Comic Pool magazine 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.
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!
