Who would have ever thought that the most feared gangster of his time now spends his days as a modest househusband? Seemingly giving up the way of the yakuza, the legendary "Immortal Dragon" Tatsu, best known for his prolific skirmishes against rival gangs, has abruptly vanished. Unbeknownst to most, however, Tatsu is currently staying at an apartment with his wife, doing his best to live a peaceful life.

Donning his trusty apron, Tatsu is now striving to become an efficient homemaker. Because of this, he has mastered the required skills—be it cooking the most delicious dishes, making sure to get the best deals at supermarkets, and everything in between—garnering the surprise of both of his former subordinates and enemies alike. Despite being a man with quite a controversial past, Tatsu's new way of life will only be more eccentric from here on out!

Have you ever passed in a test even though you know you got an F? You might've left some answers blank because you forgot to study or ran out of time.

That's Gokushufudou's anime adaptation. Though calling this eyesore an "anime" would be a lie. Every scene is nothing more than a glorified sequence of still images, killing any potential comedy from the manga. There are jokes, but they fall completely flat because of how they're presented; with flashes of a black screen like they forgot to check their work. I can’t help but think this was some sort of money laundering scheme.

An unspoken rule of ...

I normally don’t write reviews, but I am now because this anime is getting a lot of unnecessary hate.

This anime has a clear vision on what it wants to accomplish, and accomplishes it. It’s a short and sweet comedy about a former legendary yakuza member who now works as a house-husband. It’s funny, it’s entertaining, and I had a great time watching it. The characters are simple yet memorable. The voice acting is phenomenal, and this is by far one of Tsuda Kenjiro’s best performances.

Now, the elephant in the room - the animation in this show is minimal. Things only move when they have ...

This is my first time reviewing an Anime,
This adaptation was really so anticipation and was so hype because it is unique that a Yakuza working as a Househusband. First of all the coloring of the anime was really good but the animation was so bad it is like a manga panel but the characters are being dragged out such as pretending it is moving. The VA was really good and the acting of all characters in every situation is outstanding. Many situations are too confusing due to another character appears and not even knowing who the hell they are or any ...
