“Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan ss 2”: release date, announcement
Despite the fact that the anime “Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan” is announced as a comedy genre, most viewers and critics do not find the series as such. The fact is that the story of the protagonist Uramichi Omota and his colleagues on the children’s show is shown too believable. Those episodes when Uramichi gives inappropriate advice, which, rather, are a cry from the soul of the protagonist – can’t we disagree with him? This is what can be attributed to the “trick” of the anime, catching the audience. The result is obvious: Season 1 showed very good ratings. So should we wait for a sequel?
There are currently no new episodes in production, season 2 has not been officially announced. Given the fact that there is material for creating new episodes, it can be assumed that the director will still assemble the team again. We will check the information in January 2022.
Uramichi Omota was a promising athlete who showed excellent results in artistic gymnastics. The university was proud of its student, but after graduation, Uramichi did not begin to associate his life with sports. After wandering for a while, the guy found himself in the children’s show “Together with Maman”. This is not to say that this work is the ultimate dream for Uramichi, because the company of children throughout the working day is a huge challenge!
Despite his age, and the guy is 31 years old, he is not married, he does not even have a girlfriend. Therefore, he spends every evening alone, except for the days when Uramichi and his colleagues sit in a bar for drinks and cigarettes. Children know their beloved “onii-san” as a kind, cheerful adult. But sometimes a completely different Uramichi breaks out, giving depressing advice to kids…
