Written and illustrated by Oono, The Way of the Househusband follows the everyday exploits of Tatsu, an infamous-but-now-retired yakuza boss who has left behind his life of crime in order to cultivate a new life with his wife, Miku.

However, Tatsu proves that you can take the yakuza out of the man, but you can’t take the yakuza out of the man.

Taking up the role of housekeeper in support of his wife’s career ambitions, the former-gangster continues to address the day-to-day problems of his new domestic life with the same intensity and ferocity he would those who reneged on a deal.
