“It’s a day in the life of your average househusband—if your average househusband is the legendary yakuza “the Immortal Dragon”!
A former yakuza legend leaves it all behind to become your everyday househusband. But it’s not easy to walk away from the gangster life, and what should be mundane household tasks are anything but!
He was the fiercest member of the yakuza, a man who left countless underworld legends in his wake. They called him “the Immortal Dragon.” But one day he walked away from it all to walk another path—the path of the househusband! The curtain rises on this cozy yakuza comedy!”
The Way of the House Husband is a cute, comedic slice of life story of Tatsu, ex-legendary yakusa, and his daily battles of becoming a honest house husband for his wife, Miku. Tatsu takes his role seriously (being a house husband is serious business!) and although he has given up the yakuza life, he still has appearance and habits of one as seen in his suit, shades and how he approaches situations. Tatsu’s attitude and methods are what makes the manga hilarious and it gets even better with supporting characters who start off misunderstanding his innocuous comments. The art style is also brilliant at intensifying the most mundane things into something hard-core and epic.
