It has been announced that the popular webcomic The Way of the Househusband will be receiving it’s very own anime adaptation! The announcement was made at Netflix’s “NETFLIX Anime Festival 2020 Kimi to Miru anime no Mirai”, and was further verified on Netflix’s NX account.
The main character Tatsu the “Immortal Dragon” will be voiced by the legendary seiyu Kenjiro Tsuda, who actually already played Tatsu before in a live-action CM. The series will be directed by Chiaki Kon, she has directed notable works such as Nodame Cantabile and the 3rd season of Sailor Moon’s reboot. Tsuda is perhaps best known for voicing the popular characters Seto Kaiba (Yu-Gi-Oh!), Hannes (Attack on Titan), and Atomic Samurai (One Punch Man) just to name a few!
The series will make it’s worldwide debut in 2021. The Way of the Househusband is also currently airing on Japanese tv as a drama series starring Hiroshi Tamaki.
The show revolves around a 38-year-old named Tatsu who was once a legendary yakuza. He became known as the “Immortal Dragon” due to his ruthlessness. Eventually, he retired from the yakuza lifestyle to settle down with his wife Miku. Tatsu comically tries to adjust to his new role of being a househusband.
