The Way of the Househusband is a slice-of-life, slapstick-comedy manga that follows a former yakuza enforcer as he lives a normal life as a househusband. Tatsu, who was once known as “the Immortal Dragon,” is still an intense and intimidating figure, but he has focused his fervor on mastering the tasks of domestic life. He creates elaborate and adorable bento box lunches for his wife, participates in the activities of the neighborhood ladies’ association, and astounds his former yakuza associates and enemies with his new skills when he encounters them.
