The Way Of The Househusband Summary
Immortal Tatsu is an ex-yakuza who’s given up violence for making an honest man of himself . Is it still possible for a devoted stay-at-home husband and still get into a few scrapes?MU
I stumbled upon The Way Of The Househusband on Pocket Comics and it was instant love!
The manga series combines a very different type of protagonist with a very unlikely profession. A yakuza turns into a househusband, all for the love of his wife.
With the same intensity he’s tackling his enemies, he’s now tackling his wife’s lunch and dust!
The way our protagonist seems to tackle his tasks are so hilariously unpredictable and funny. We can’t quite know how he’s going at it, and it just keeps you on the edge. I absolutely love the contrast between his personality and the chores he set out to do!
I’ve read some stuff which suggests the series is actually much deeper than the comedy points out. This is something I can believe, considering I doubt a yakuza leader would top being one. Especially to take care of a household and his wife, but he’s doing an amazing job.
As for the anime, some people are hating on it. I suppose it’s due to the marketing was done poorly and fool people into thinking it’s a proper anime. Instead it’s more of a manga series adapted with moving scenes.
I’ve yet to finish the series, but so far it seems to be quite fun! The segments are funny and hints at a deeper past. We just don’t know why our protagonist leaves the yakuza, but I suppose we’ll find that out eventually.
Recommendation: I recommend giving it a go if you want some light-hearted fun. Not sure how much deepness there is to the story, but still a fun read!
