Title: Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan
Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life
“Hello, boys and girls! Do you like guys with more than one side to them?”
31 year old Omota Uramichi is the gymnastics coach in the children’s educational TV program “Together with Mama.” He might be sweet on the outside, but all boys and girls are inevitably scared off whenever they get a glimpse of the adult darkness that’s the result of Uramichi-sensei’s emotional instability. This is a tragic eulogy to all the “boys and girls” who are now adults! (Credit: https://myanimelist.net/anime/40620/Uramichi_Oniisan)
This anime is dank. Dark and dank.
For us adults, it is an ode to the death of our youth and the reality of life. We are introduced to Uramichi who is a former gymnast who now works on a children’s program. One minute, he is a cheerful show host, but the minute he is asked a question by one of the child actors, a switch happens and something dark comes out of his mouth. And, it’s actually pretty funny for all the wrong reasons.
Urimichi is a lot of us. Adults that didn’t actually end up where we wanted to. Urimichi and he fellow co-workers are all in the same boat, and by that, I mean hitting mid-life and wondering whether this is as good as it gets. And, it’s funny.
If you like dark humor, this show is for you. There really isn’t much to review. If you like dark humor, you’ll just have to watch it. Uramichi throws out some awesome one-liners that one must experience in real time.
