The release date of “Uramichi Oniisan”, which was planned to be broadcast in 2021, has been announced. The teaser visual, and comments from the main cast including Kamiya Hiroshi and the author Kuza Gaku, have been revealed. It will be on air in July 2021.
“Uramichi Oniisan” is based on an online comic, which has been serialized in ‘comic POOL’ and whose total copies(including e-books) exceeded 1 million.
The protagonist is Omota Uramichi, a 31-year-old two-faced man serving as a Taisou no Oniisan (lit. big brother of gymnastics) on ‘Maman to Together’, an educational TV program. “Uramichi Oniisan”, who is pleasant but emotionally unstable, shows the dark side of adults. The story depicts ‘Psalm of Life’ for good children who grew up.
As the release date has been announced, comments from the main cast including Kamiya Hiroshi as Omota Uramichi and the author Kuze Gaku have arrived. Along with that, original photos of the cast have been revealed.
The TV anime “Uramichi Oniisan” will be on air from July 2021.
Thank you everyone for always supporting “Uramichi Oniisan”. Thanks to your support, latest information of the TV anime “Uramichi Oniisan”, which we are currently working on, has been revealed. As an original author and supervisor, I see the progress such as a storyboard and recording. I am so excited. In addition to the wonderful anime-specific performances, there will come some original episodes, so even if you already know the original story, you would be able to enjoy it.
We also would like those who don’t know about the original story to be a new fan of “Uramichi Oniisan”, and we all, including the cast and staff, are working on production. Please look forward to the release in July 2021.
Kamiya Hiroshi (Omota Uramichi)
The anime of “Uramichi Oniisan” will be released!
If this announcement had been made 10 years ago, I would have said ‘Thank you for waiting!’ as I was still new to the cast, but now
time passes so weirdly, so I feel like it was just a second since our production started…（phew) It took a long time, so we could make it in a even more respectful way. Please look forward to it!
Sugita Tomokazu (Usahara Tobikichi)
When we hear ‘sick’ ‘insane’, would we accept it with care or hate it?
I think neither one is right.
Usahara is so unfortunate and is always unhappy, but I will never get disappointed with him.
Nakamura Yuichi (Kumagai Mitsuo)
It was supposed to be released in 2020, but thank you for waiting!
We will deliver it to you with even more power!
The wonderful story presented by the cast in a good mood ! Please do not miss it!!
Miyano Mamoru (Daga Iketeru)
I am so grateful that “Uramichi Oniisan” will become an anime adaptation, and I could join the amazing cast!
Recording is well along, but I cannot help laughing during it.
I want to deliver it to the fans as soon as possible！
We are singing the inserted songs as well, so please look forward to it!
Mizuki Nana (Tadano Utano)
I always burst out laughing every week while recording for the lines of the unique characters including Uramichi Oniisan!(laugh)
As Utano, I want you to see singing scenes!
The words that appear in the manga have this melody!? This tune!? You will be able to enjoy it!
Please watch the broadcast!
