The Way of the Househusband season 2 review: Old wine in a new bottle

In “The Way of the Househusband”, Tatsu, once known as the ‘Immortal Dragon’ and a famed member of the yakuza, gives up his life of crime to become a stay-at-home dad. The second season is streaming on Netflix.


Tatsu makes new pals, contacts, and mentors to aspire to. Additionally, he commits himself more fully to his role as a house-husband, and his devotion is shown as inspiration and zeal.

Miku searches through a huge pile of pastries for some sort of bonus card. Masa and Tatsu attempt to assist her, but they end up consuming too many pastries.

Tatsu visits a little kid at the hospital while posing as the Policure character Dokudon. The nurse points out the flaws in their performance and tells them that they aren’t allowed to do those things inside a hospital while Tatsu and Miku attempt to cheer the kid.

Koharu, Torajiyou’s sister, enters the scene as a rival and launches a food truck, which hurts Torajiyou’s food business. With his culinary prowess, Tatsu ends their argument.

Tatsu makes Suzu eat veggies after he shares an endearing tale about a carrot with her. Later, Tatsu and Masa assist his landlord in getting rid of all the weeds in his garden.


The slideshow-style animation complements the anime’s tone and location.

The series serves up some endearing moments that may cheer the soul even when the jokes aren’t particularly funny.

Tatsu and his buddies definitely show the better side of mankind in several of these short stories, whether it is their clumsy attempt to amuse a sick child in a hospital or their assistance in pulling out weeds in their landlord’s yard.

The main character, voiced by Kenjirô Tsuda, remains a cool professional whose grit and frightening demeanor are what really make the episodes funny. 


The short episodes of the series have little bearing on one another and make watching the series seem like reading a collection of comic strips.

This series suffers from reusing the same humor similar to the first season since it ultimately depends on Tatsu’s exaggerated responses to everything that happens around him.

The Way of the HouseHusband season 2 has, at best, limited animation. Much of the series feels more like it belongs in the early 2000s era of amateur animation because of its lack of movement.


This anime features a peculiar and distinctive animation style, which may throw off casual viewers but not necessarily those who are just looking to have fun. The entire performance will be successful in at least making the crowd smile.
