Hands down the funniest manga I have ever read wow. The wholesome of this manga in combination with this dude being an ex-Yakuza member is actually the best ever. I need to read all the other volumes asap.
Read the first couple of pages yesterday and I am hooked! A Yakuza turned Househusband?! This is freaking hilarious haha!!

Here we follow the daily life of a househusband, as he does such common things as making lunch, cleaning house and trying to get groceries while they are on sale. All common plac ...more
This is absolutely adorable and hilarious. I love how each chapter starts off with a vague scene that comes across as violent or sketchy, and then there's always a reveal that his goings-on are totally innocent and helpful. Honestly, just absolutely precious and I laughed out loud so many times reading this one volume that I already can't wait for Vol. 2!
Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this review copy in exchange for ...more
But mostly it's this:
With some of this:
Could be either, could be both . . . the way of the house-husband and the way of the Yakuza are connected.
This was a fun read, and I plan to continue with the series.
I can't wait til this happy couple has kids! ...more
So this is turning out to be one of my favorite mangas already.
A Ex-yakuza decides to live the househusband way. His wife goes to work and during that time he gets into all types of adventures. Dealing with a cleaning robot, trying to cook the best meal he can, buying a present for his wife and so on. It's all over the top, all very funny, and such a quickly paced manga I read it in about 15-20 minutes.
But it has a lot of heart. A lot of gr ...more
Art - 3.5
Story - what story?
Good art, but Gag Manga is not for me.
A feared Yakuza turned househusband that takes day-to-day chores very serious. The way the people acts with his so-called fierce facade and way to do things is supposedly funny.
It have just 'chapters' , with not story or former story of the change just vignettes with no arc.
Didn't work for me. I expected something else. Sorrynotsorry. ...more
Oh dear...this manga really fell flat for me :/
The basic premise is a former yakuza boss adapting to life as a house husband, and being his ‘typical’ self, he takes everything SERIOUSLY (including food shopping, cooking, cleaning, etc.) The chapters were very short and the same gags were used repeatedly. We don’t really learn anything about the MC except his former occupation and he really doesn’t seem that terrifying apart from his expression which does look murderous.
The manga was i ...more
I have seen this manga on my Tumblr dashboard a few times here and there, and always pushed it back on my manga TBR pile but after seeing this on Netgalley I just knew I had to dive right on it and I have no regrets.
“The Way of the Househusband” refreshing concept revolves around a former yakuza legend, ‘The Immortal Dragon’ who leaves behind his former lifestyle to become your everyday househusband. It was refreshing, unexpected, original and more comical than I anticipated so ...more
And whilst I did found this story very entertaining, it’s doesn’t have a plot per se. All the chapters are short and random but you still get the idea that Tatsu can never get rid of his powerful aura as a yakuza.
I did laugh a lot and I think the art sty ...more
The chapters in this first volume are very episodic and focused on going for the laugh, but the creator is slowly building up a supporting cast and ...more
You can take a man out of the Yakuza, but you can't take Yakuza out of the man.
What we have here is a collection of episodic chapters chronicling the domestic life of a former gangster as he takes on the challenges of cleaning, cooking, and home improvement projects with the same intensity he did when he was a Yakuza enforcer.
Right there is a recipe for some of the funniest short stories in manga. 5 stars.

I love everything about this concept! An ex-Yakuza, now Househusband? Yes please, sign me up. This was hilarious from start to finish. I also loved, that each chapter was kind of its own little mini-story rather than the whole volume being one continuous story! I'd definitely continue with this series in the future!
Note: I am currently on a hiatus from reviewing. I need a bit of a break from the pressures of reading, so I'm just going with the flow this year. I'll obviously still be reading, but ...more
I have seen a lot of people talk about this manga on Twitter and I was eager to try it out. Today I was in the mood for something silly and fun, which I could use after almost 2 weeks of continuous work on my new home + packing up stuff in my old home.
And I have to say it was very funny at times, mostly to do with how Tatsu does his cleaning or how he goes about do ...more
The Way of the House Husband, volume 1, is the first in a series of manga about a former Yakuza crime boss who has retired to the home life.
He is married to a career woman and takes his role as house husband very seriously. He maintains the house, does the shopping, does the cooking, and every other little detail to make sure that they have a happy life together.
He does all of this with a crime boss' intensity. The premise i ...more
The manga certainly works on that level. But besides the amazing gags, there's not much in the way of a story as yet. I may keep reading, and also check out some of the other volumes to see if the story improves ...more
