How did the cynical Uramichi end up hosting a TV show for small children? And how long is the studio going to let him keep teaching the kids the sorrow and exhaustion of life instead of, say, the ABCs? Uramichi is a 31-year old children's TV host who leads physical exercises and teaches life lessons colored by one main theme: adulthood sucks. Alongside mascots played by a couple of bushy-tailed millennials, and a singing duo whose music embodies the notion of being kicked while you're down, Uramichi wades through the misery of working life, one sardonic comment at a time...
This sarcastic manga is a wonderful humerous look at the adult working life, where keeping a happy smiling face is essential to getting paid. A must read for all adults that have gone through the mill and need a bit of cheering up.
This easily became my favourite manga. Your humour has to match with this manga to find it enjoyable. I showed it to my friends who like reading manga but they didn't enjoy it as much as I do. The story isn't really usual because of its set up and it is more like a slice of life than telling a story that has a beginning and ending. I like all the characters they have there different personality and mindset (if we don't count that everyone of them is a bit depressed). My main reason for liking it is that coping on a bad day or a trauma with humour makes it less unbearable, even if it's black humour. These are all my personal opinion. BTW I was so happy that first they didn't show Kumatani and Usahara's face, (the bear and the bunny). And later, the reader meets them and gets to now them.
