The Way of the Househusband
Oono Kousuke’s The Way of the Househusband first appeared in Shinchosha’s web manga service Kurage Banch as a short-term serialization in 2018. The manga started the ongoing serialization in the same year. On September 9, 2021, it released its 8th compiled volume. The work also inspired a Netflix anime adaptation, which released this year.
Viz Media has been publishing the English version and describes the plot as:
He was the fiercest member of the yakuza, a man who left countless underworld legends in his wake. They called him “the Immortal Dragon.” But one day he walked away from it all to travel another path—the path of the househusband! The curtain rises on this cozy yakuza comedy!
