"Immortal Tatsu," the legendary yakuza who single-handedly defeated a rival gang with a lead pipe, is a name known to strike fear in both hardened police officers and vicious criminals. Soon after his sudden disappearance, he resurfaces with a slight change in profession. Now equipped with an apron, Tatsu has given up violence and is trying to make an honest living as a house husband.

While adapting to mundane household tasks, Tatsu finds that being a house husband has its own challenges, from the battlefield known as supermarket sales to failures in the kitchen. Despite living peacefully, misunderstandings seem to follow him left and right. Gokushufudou follows the daily life of the comically serious ex-yakuza as he leaves behind his dangerous previous life to become a stay-at-home husband.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Gokushufudou has been published in English as The Way of the Househusband by Viz Media since September 17, 2019.

A “House Husband” who was an “Immortal Yakuza” (Gangster)/ Comedy/ Slice of life

DO YOU actually believe being in abandoned factory or dark alleyways/ basements are SAFER than staying in normal houses or markets?
DO YOU still believe mafia and your nemesis are SCARIER than your wife or girlfriend?
DO READ this manga, it will change your mind :P

Story : 10
The style, シリアスな笑い (嚴肅搞笑/ serious comedy), of the story is amazing. Using the element, prejudice (as we expect Yakuza to act in a certain way), the story unintentionally makes us laugh even though it seems "ordinary".

Since it doesn’t really have strict story line, similar to that ...

Only 5 Chapters out right now, so these are just some thoughts and to get more people to read it.
I don't like giving it an absolute overall rating yet but MAL demands it so there ya go. Let's call it the "first impression rating".

If you are a fan of stone cold comedic delivery, this is for you. The chapters are short but fresh, episodic but with a red string somewhere in there. We will have to see if they focus on comedy or story. Maybe they can actually manage both but we'll have to wait and see.

It has been some time since reading a manga ...
