Hello there, all you good children! The main staff has been revealed for Uramichi Oniisan, an upcoming TV anime based on the dark comedy manga by Gaku Kuze about a young man whose cheerful employment on a children’s TV program can’t hide his pessimistic personality. The main staff includes:
- Original work: Gaku Kuze
- Director: Nobuyoshi Nagayama
- Series composition: Touko Machida
- Character design: Mizuki Takahashi
- Sound director: Kisuke Koizumi
- Music: Kei Haneoka
- Animation production: Studio Blanc.
The Uramichi Oniisan manga is serialized in Ichijinsha’s comic POOL digital magazine. The story follows Uramichi Omota, a 31-year-old man who works as a gymnastics instructor on a children’s educational TV program called “Maman to Together” (a parody of NHK Educational TV’s long-running program “Okaasan to Issho / Together with Mama”). While Uramichi has a bright and happy demeanor, he is mentally unstable and he often shows his off-putting adult dark side to children.
The Uramichi Oniisan TV anime will broadcast in Japan in 2020.
