Life Lessons with Uramichi-Oniisan Episode 4 Spoilers
In episode 3, titled “Wash Your Hands and Gargle” or “Tearai Ugai wa Taisetsu ni,” Omota, along with other hosts, teaches children about the importance of washing hands and maintaining good hygiene. The following day, he is approached by kids to draw their favorite anime characters, KiraPure Pink and KiraPure Blue. However, his lack of interest reflects in his drawings, and his sketches look nothing like the girls’ expectations.
Thankfully Iketeru arrives at the right time and saves the day by drawing the characters accurately. Omota is later asked by the director to pull an all-nighter in order to draw KiraPure Pink and KiraPure Blue on every ball in a huge carton. The cynical host ends up working overtime and messes up the shooting for the show the following day.
When he gets back home after work, Uramichi is again overtaken by the existential dread and the lack of any drive, whether it comes from ambition or love. In episode 4, he will have to deal with unforeseen financial troubles. He may get help from one of his colleagues and end up doing some other embarrassing act for the kids’ television program.
