Some good new for all of you good little kids out there: Uramichi Oniisan, an upcoming TV anime based on the darkly humorous manga by Gaku Kuze about a children’s show TV host with a grim and cynical personality, is back on track with a new release window and a new key visual (below).


Originally scheduled to be released in 2020 but then postponed due to “production issues”, Uramichi Oniisan is now scheduled to broadcast in Japan beginning in July of 2021.



The Uramichi Oniisan manga is serialized in Ichijinsha’s comic POOL digital magazine, and an English language version is also published by Kodansha Comics under the title Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan. Kodansha Comics describes the story of the series as follows:


How did the cynical Uramichi end up hosting a TV show for small children? And how long is the studio going to let him keep teaching the kids the sorrow and exhaustion of life instead of, say, the ABCs?
