Let’s talk about Life Lessons With Uramichi Oniisan, the upcoming anime based on the manga created by Gaku Kuze. Uramichi Oniisan Life Lesson is a rather tragic and ironic tale about adulthood. It follows the routine life of Uramichi Omota, gymnastics instructor for a popular children’s show called ‘Together with Maman’ which means ‘together with mother.’ The story is beautiful because it takes on reality. Often times, the happiest faces that look the most cheerful hide misery behind their optimistic self. This is especially true for celebrities.
Uramichi can be considered a celebrity for being such a popular host. In addition, being the host of a show aimed at children, she could not show her somewhat realistic and often gloomy demeanor on screen.
Let’s get into the character details first.
The main character, as we already mentioned is Uramichi. A 31 year old man who is one of the 5 popular presenters of popular children’s shows. In the anime, Uramichi will be voiced by Hiroshi Kamiya. Hiroshi is best known as the voice of Captain Levi from Attack on Titan.
Uramichi is a prime example of an adult who feels very hopeless but doesn’t quite show it. However, sometimes on the show, she allowed her true self to say things that weren’t right for kids. Uramichi is an adult who is crushed by social pressure. He drinks cigarettes and has the most unhealthy lifestyle and philosophy for a children’s show icon. But in the end, Uramichi was human. And her lifestyle looks and feels very real.
Iketeru is a supporting character in the show. She is one of five hosts who do the little things on the show with Uramichi. Iketeru is a classic airhead. He uses his time when he doesn’t understand something and he doesn’t understand things. This includes telling the time on the clock. He used to be a musical actor before falling into the hands of the director and producer Together with Maman. She is a singing instructor who sings melodies to teach children simple lessons. Often times, she and Uramichi are made to wear ridiculous costumes and assume characters to tell kids about germs, or manners, or other things like that. Her character will be voiced by Miyano Mamoru, best known for voicing Light Yagami in Death Note.

Kumatani plays a bear at Maman’s Together with Uramichi. Mitsuo is an easy-going individual and perhaps the sane person of all the characters in the show. He remains calm but is afraid of Uramichi. Uramichi tends to let go of pent up frustration in his other cast members. As a result, Mitsuo rarely took off his bear mask so he didn’t need to make eye contact with Uramichi. He will be voiced by Yuichi Nakamura, who is famous for Gray Fullbuster in Fairy Tale and Mumen Rider in One Punch Man.
Utano Tadano is the main female character in the show. He is a former idol singer who, due to bad luck and time, has to work alongside Iketeru Daga as a singing instructor on the show. Just like every other character she is cheerful on the show but when the curtains close and the cameras stop turning, Utano is just another girl trying to face life. He often gets depressed, especially about marriage. Her life is no less tragic as she worked hard to graduate from a top Music University but still failed with her singing career. She is obsessed with marriage and if one of the kids on the show asks her something about it, she will give advice on choosing a partner. One of the show’s other hyper-realistic characters, Utano will be voiced by Mizuki Nana, who is best known for playing Hinata in Naruto.
