Gaku Kuze's Uramichi Oniisan Manga About Children's TV Show Host Gets Anime

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Ichijinsha began streaming a new promotional video for the fourth volume of Gaku Kuze's Uramichi Oniisan manga on Friday. The video reveals that the comedy manga is inspiring an anime adaptation.

Kuze also drew an illustration to celebrate the announcement of the anime.

The cast of the anime will be the same as the cast for the manga's promotional videos, which include Hiroshi Kamiya as Uramichi Omota, Tomokazu Sugita as Uramichi 's subordinate Tobikichi Usahara, Yūichi Nakamura as Uramichi 's subordinate Mitsuo Kumagai, Mamoru Miyano as singer Iketeru Daga, and Nana Mizuki as singer Utano Tadano.

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.

The manga debuted in 2017 in Ichijinsha and pixiv's digital manga magazine Comic POOL. Ichijinsha published the manga's third compiled book volume on January 29, and it will publish the fourth on October 29. The manga 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.
