The Way of the Househusband is a funky manga about a retired gangster who has chosen a much more peaceful lifestyle. Tatsu is a person who looks quite scary but has a heart of gold.
Who knew that an ex-yakuza could be so accomplished in household chores? His finesse of work can put even veteran house-wives to shame.
From making cute bento to bubble tea from scratch, he does everything in a quirky (and sometimes scary) way.
Netflix has announced that The Way of the Househusband manga will be receiving an anime adaptation in 2021. The first visual for the upcoming anime has been shared by Netflix.
In the visual, Immortal Tatsu is holding up a cute bento which he has prepared. The bento is in stark contrast to Tatsu himself, who looks like a stereotypical yakuza member with the addition of an apron.
Kousuke Onno, the creator of The Way of the Househusband manga, has shared a special illustration after the news of the anime adaptation was made public.

The illustration shows Tatsu holding a cooking turner with chibi Miku (Tatsu’s wife) and Masa (his underling) surrounding him. These three are the main characters of the series.
J. C. Staff is animating the series. Kenjiro Tsuda (Jegal Taek in The God Of Highschool, Ogata in The Golden Kamuy) will be voicing Tatsu. He also starred as Tatsu in the live-action adaptation.
The staff for the anime includes:
|Director||Chiaki Kon||Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal: Season III|
|Series Script||Susumu Yamakawa||Back Street Girls: Gokudols|
The manga has also inspired a live-action drama, which is ongoing at the moment. It premiered in October 2020.
About The Way of the Househusband
The Way of the Househusband is a comedy manga by Kousuke Onno. It was first serialized in February 2018 and is an ongoing manga.
Immortal Tatsu is a retired yakuza who has chosen the life of a househusband over that of a gangster. He spotlessly finishes all household chores to support his wife, Miku.
His appearance is in stark contrast to his love for cute bentos and dogs. His run-ins with other yakuza often turn out to be a hilarious situation.
