Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan Vol. 1 Manga Review

Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan is an ongoing comedy manga series by Gaku Kuze and published by Kodansha. Never in all my years have I felt more seen by a manga series; follow a jaded 31 year old and his fellow cast members as they work on the children’s show ‘Together with Maman’ and navigate the hellscape that is adulthood with grudging grace…?

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…

Manga Recommendations for Otome Game Lovers

It’s no secret that I love manga just as much if not more than otome games—I have the bank statements to prove it. But, when I’m not romancing 2D hotties on my Switch you can usually find me curled up on my couch with a manga or two. I read a lot of manga and played a lot of otome games over the years and I’ve noticed a few similarities between the two mediums. Of course my tastes are over the place: action, horror, romance, slice-of-life… I’ll give just about anything a try at least once.

Otome games are story-based visual novels aimed at women, where the goal is to romance your own personal harem of love interests.
