The Manga | The Way Of The Househusband
Written and Illustrated by Kousuke Ono, The Way Of The Househusband, is a Japanese Manga Series that was first published in the Online Manga Magazine called Kurage Bunch back in 2018.
Initially, it was published with a 5 chapters only limit but because it became very popular, it received a serialization. The manga currently has a total of 5 volumes released with many more to come.
The manga has several awards under its belt and is perhaps has one of the most hilarious uses of the Gap Moe concept in mangas.
The plot follows the life of an Ex-Mafia Boss, Tatsu, who is currently retired but back in the day used to cause a lot of havoc and was hence nicknamed “The Immortal Dragon”. Currently, he is married and lives his life as a Househusband while his wife, Miku, works a daytime job and happens to be an Otaku.
The Story follows the goofy encounters and silly misunderstandings Tatsu has in his daily life as a Househusband while also featuring various characters both from his past life as a Mafia Boss as well as people that know him solely as a Househusband.
