“Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan” or “Uramichi Oniisan” is a comedic anime that follows the fictional protagonist of the same name, navigating life through thick and thin phases. Today, the 30-year-old former gymnast works as a host for “Together with Maman”, an educational television program for children.
Sadly, despite his best efforts to maintain an uplifting mindset, Uramichi reveals his deepest insecurities and the grim realities of life in front of innocent children, leading comedic scripts to divide everyone. Based on the Japanese manga of the same name by Gaku Kuze, the anime premiered on July 6, 2021. The show was instantly recognized by critics for its formidable features and compelling premises.
Despite much criticism, the series was highly rated by audiences online. After the first season ends, fans are anxiously awaiting to see if Uramichi and his friends will return for another season. If you are curious, we are ready to serve you.
Official Release date of season 2!
Season 1 of “Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan” was released on July 6, 2021, in Japan on TV Tokyo and BS11. After 13 episodes, the series finally wrapped up on September 28, 2021. Studio Blanc developed the anime, with Nobuyoshi Nagayama leading the production team and Tōko Machida overseeing the script.
As for the second season of the Slice of Life black comedy series, here’s everything we know so far. None of the people/companies involved in the development of the first season, including Studio Blanc, have officially confirmed the renewal of the show. As mentioned earlier, the series was highly rated by anime fans and received a lot of positive reviews around the world. Coupled with a large audience and a global fan base, the anime seems to have a bright future ahead of it.
If you look at the source material, the first season adapted only three volumes of Gaku Kuze’s work, so there is still a lot to discover. So the show will almost certainly return with another season. Considering production and other factors, we can assume that the second season of “Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan” will air in early 2023.
What can you expect from the new release?
During the Season 1 finale, Tobikichi dreamed of Uramichi’s farewell party. When he woke up suddenly he was afraid of being a prophet. Amon then meets the main character as he has no new creative ideas and needs his help from him. Unfortunately, Uramichi believes that nothing can be done for him and refuses to support his creative endeavors. However, this does not deter Amon, who continues to chase him. The next day, a guy suddenly disappeared from the office.
But when the “Together with Maman” team looks for him, they discover that he himself is lost in the workshop and hasn’t gone too far. At the end of the episode, Uramichi seems proud of himself for changing people’s lives and for having friends he can rely on.
In the second season, the series may briefly focus on the main character’s rivalry with Masamichan. Uramichi and his friends will also venture into the world of social media, only to be shocked by their nonsense. The main character will eventually fall in love and face the ups and downs of a relationship. Unfortunately, his winter break will be long and lonely. Uramichi will also visit Tokyo for the first time and be fascinated by the lives of its people.
