The third volume of the popular web manga Uramichi Oniisan by Gaku Kuze went on sale in Japan on January 29. Publisher Ichijinsha commemorated the release with a promotional video for the volume starring Zombie Land Saga's Mamoru Miyano as Iketeru Daga, Bakemonogatari's Hiroshi Kamiya as Uramichi Omota, Gintama's Tomokazu Sugita as Tobikichi Usahara, and Fairy Tail's Yūichi Nakamura as Mitsuo Kumagai.

The manga series centers on a 31-year-old man named Uramichi Omota who has two sides to his personality. He appears as the young man in charge of physical exercises on the educational program "Maman to Together." Although he has a fresh and upbeat demeanor on the show, he is actually a bit emotionally unstable. The manga reveals the less-than-sunny parts of life for young adults.

Some book stores are handing out bonus items with purchase of the manga's third volume. Animate stores have sketch illustration cards and other franchise bookstores also have autograph art boards.

The series has a dedicated reader-base and previously won in the Web Manga category of Niconico's third Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards, took second place in last year's pixiv and Nippon Shuppan Hanbai, Inc's "Web Manga General Election", topped the same competition's "Indies" category in 2017, and also made the top 20 of Kono Manga ga Sugoi's ranking for female readers 2018 list.

Kuze's Uramichi Oniisan web manga debuted in 2017 in Ichijinsha and pixiv's digital manga magazine Comic POOL.
