The anime adaptation of Life Lessons with Uramichi-Oniisan is coming to Japan on July 5. It was originally supposed to come out in 2020, but got bumped back because of COVID-19. To get people excited for the premiere, a video introducing us to character Iketeru Daga was released.
Life Lessons with Uramichi-Oniisan is a dark comedy. Kodansha publishes the original manga in English and gave this description for the first volume:
“Uramichi is a 31-year old children’s TV host who leads physical exercises and teaches life lessons colored by one main theme: adulthood sucks. Alongside mascots played by a couple of bushy-tailed millennials, and a singing duo whose music embodies the notion of being kicked while you’re down, Uramichi wades through the misery of working life, one sardonic comment at a time…”
