‘Life Lessons with Uramichi-Oniisan’ or ‘Uramichi Oniisan’ is a slice-of-life comedy anime that follows the eponymous nihilistic protagonist as he navigates life through the thick and thin. The thirty-something-year-old former gymnast now works as a host on “Together with Maman,” a children’s educational TV program. Despite his best efforts to keep an uplifting mood, Uramichi sadly ends up revealing his deepest insecurities and dark realities of life in front of innocent children leading to comical scenarios that can leave anyone in splits. Based on Gaku Kuze’s Japanese manga of the same name, the anime first premiered on July 6, 2021. The show was instantly praised by critics for its impressive characterizations and captivating premise.
Although it did receive its fair share of criticism, the series is rated highly by viewers online. Following the conclusion of season 1, fans can’t be any more excited to learn whether Uramichi and his friends will return for another season.

‘Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan’ season 1 released on TV Tokyo and BS11 on July 6, 2021, in Japan. After its 13-episode run, the series ultimately concluded on September 28, 2021. Studio Blanc has developed the anime with Nobuyoshi Nagayama helming the directorial team and Tōko Machida overseeing the scripts.
As far as season 2 of the slice of life dark comedy series is concerned, here’s everything we know so far. None of the people/companies involved in the development of the first season, including Studio Blanc, has officially confirmed the show’s renewal. As mentioned before, the series has been rated highly by the anime fandom and has also received tons of positive reviews worldwide. Coupled with a decent viewership and a global fan following, it seems that the anime has a bright future ahead of itself.
