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
has made me truly laugh but this gets it done.
Again, the manga is not fully out yet hence no full review.
Go give it a try!
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
of “Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan”, it can last forever until the mangaka runs out of idea.
The abrupt conclusion of each chapter is also another reason why this manga is top-tier.
Ok guys, this category is a perfect 10. DON’T ARGUE WITH ME ON THIS CATEGORY! Those background are GOLD and those face expressions are DIAMOND. It is not hard to tell that the mangaka spent so much time on each manga box.
Because Yakuza and house husband are two contrasting “occupations”, ギャップ萌え (反差萌/ contrasting moe) setup for Tatsu is a huge selling point. Honestly, don’t want to spoil too much on this category as well.
This cannot be lower than a 10. I have never read any manga that can make normal daily routines, such as washing clothes or making food, to be as amusing as how this manga portrayed. It has been a while that a manga can make me laugh like this :D
Caution: readers need to be patient about this manga ( I don’t think this is a weekly manga); however, with such quality, I will say the wait is worth it.
Overall: 10 or 9.5
This manga has the potential of being long-lasting since it solely depends how many ideas or laughing points this mangaka will create. As long as this manga keeps on updating, I will keep on reading and following. -0.5 because of potential room for error
Honestly, this manga, sooner or later, will become an anime.
This manga is only 6 chapters long at the moment, so I can't say too much about it really but lemme try and write something up for it.
This is a gag manga of sorts about a Yakuza turned house husband and the shenanigans he gets into daily thanks to how he carries himself as an ex-Yakuza as well as his past coming up once or twice so far and causing some misunderstandings.
I like this manga, it's funny and I always enjoy manga about Yakuza or delinquents etc. so I had to pick this up and give it a read, so far I really
One thing that bothers me though is the chapters sometimes end abruptly and I'm left wondering if maybe I didn't read the full chapter or something but nah it's just like that. It doesn't detract from my enjoyment or anything though I just felt that was something worth noting so that you don't go into as I did and get confused.
This manga is based on a legendary Yakuza member, one of the strongest brawlers around and legend of the criminal underworld turned into a (mostly) docile house-husband by the love of a special woman. Don't expect anything too deep out of this story however, as it is almost solely a comedy, featuring short chapters that often jump between events rapidly rather than a more continuous, slower paced story. If you are not a huge comedy fan it might not be the choice for you but as far as I am concerned this series is one of the best comedies I've ever laid my eyes upon.
Chapter after chapter I find myself in stitches at the various misunderstandings, adventures and triumphs of Tatsu the Immortal, legendary house-husband!
The art is quite good, nothing particularly spectacular or revolutionary but of high enough quality to receive full marks. Quality is consistent and it stays on-model. The artist is quite talented in his ability to give the main character, Tatsu, an almost omnipresent natural menacing look that is simply his default. He is simultaneously frightening but totally casual and unaware of his aura of intimidation at most times. Capturing two things that are so at odds with one another in facial expression and body language is quite the triumph in my opinion.
This series started off great. The premise is very funny, and was able to sustain itself for a few chapters, but it became very bland very quickly. I suppose there's only so much you can do with the premise of "manly man takes on a traditionally feminine role" before it goes stale. I think this would've worked better as a single volume, or as part of a larger series of vingettes.
That said, the art is very solid throughout, at least what I've read. It's not spectacular or particularly unique, but it is very competently done. The character designs are interesting, and I want to eat
the food off of the page, but overall it's just fine. Nothing revolutionary, but not poorly thought out.
