Netflix’s upcoming series ‘The Way of the Househusband’ is surely going to satisfy the fans of Japanese manga comics. The animated series is based on the storyline featured in the original manga drawn and written by Kousuke Oono.
The show revolves around a former yakuza kingpin, nicknamed ‘The Immortal Dragon’ as he leaves his life of crime behind to take up the mantle of a househusband and support his working wife. The contradiction of his image outside against what he does indoors is the heart of this comedy. Things are taken up a notch when he occasionally runs into former gang members and rivals, resulting in rib-tickling scenarios.
The long-awaited anime adaptation of the comic is set to enthrall the viewers with jaw-dropping sequences and an engaging storyline.
