Uramichi Oniisan – Manga Review And Anime Update

Gaku Kuze's Hilarious Yet Very Realistic Manga "Uramichi Oniisan" To Receive An Anime Adaptation In 2021.

Uramichi Oniisan

Uramichi Oniisan is a Japanese manga series that addresses this issue in the most hilarious and yet very realistic manner. Written and illustrated by Gaku Kuze, a pixie artist, who made this manga with the purpose to bring to light the darker aspect of the Entertainment Industry while using light-hearted humor. The Entertainment Industry is all about being presentable, it doesn’t matter how one is feeling inside as long as the cameras are rolling you have to be the best self you can be.

Uramichi Oniisan began it’s serialization in Ichijinsha’s comic digital magazine back in 2017 and since then the comic has published 4 volumes with more to come.

The manga follows the story of Uramichi Omota, a 31-year-old man who works as a gymnastic instructor on a children’s Educational T.V. program called “Together with Mama”. In this T.V. Show, Uramichi and his coworkers conduct exercises and various other activities along with a group of children on the set with them. The catch of the story is that Uramichi Omota is not mentally stable and doesn’t like his current way of life, but it’s not just him but also his Co-workers. When the cameras are rolling, Uramichi Omota is a nice and reliable big brother who is just overflowing with positivity but off-camera he is just mentally exhausted middle-aged man who is a smoker and loves alcohol. Sometimes his real personality slips while interacting with the children, which is hilariously put together by the author.

The whole objective of the Author was that everything is extremely coated in excess makeup in a sense and fake in the entertainment business. That despite what one might think Adult life comes with a lot of heavy undertones and not everything is as perfect as it seems.
