This is a book of short slice-of-life stories and I was hoping for a little more depth. Cute, but not enough to make me continue reading the series.

This book is about a man named Tatsu, a former yukuza (Japanese mafia) boss and a highly feared man. However, Tatsu has given up his mob bass life and has settled in the role of househusband for his working wife. Throughout the book, Tatsu hilariously deals with everyday tasks such as shopping and cooking meals, while also dealing with enemies and employees of the past. If you‘re a fan of manga such as Mob Psycho 100 or-(more in comments)

kyra.wever The Disastrous Life of Saiki K or are just interested in a funny read, this is a good book. I think the theme of this book is to not let your past define who you want to be- Tatsu was formerly a man who was feared by many, but has chosen to help his working wife out and be a proper househusband. Although he still deals with the consequences of his former life and his intimidating appearance, he has found peace and a family. 9mo

No one can convince me this is not a masterpiece.

Another @Matilda recommendation, this one made me laugh, too. A yakuza legend decides to become a stay-at-home husband. Some of the translated language grated. I didn‘t expect the “yer” and “ain‘t” in a lot of the speech bubbles, but overall, it was entertaining.

“Maybe a house husband and a Yakuza are two sides of the same coin?!”
Yeah, that about sums it up! Highly recommend if you need a good laugh! #manga

I found out last night that Way of the Househusband won an Eisner Award for Best Humour Publication!

I love this series, the artwork in the series is very detailed, especially when it comes to the tattoo designs and serious facial expressions, and the shenanigans through the story are laughable.

The second volume isn't in the data base but oh well. This continues to follow a former gang boss as he does mundane house things in his intense way. It's pretty amusing.

I‘m going to be honest I picked this up because I‘ve been so stressed recently and god I love this manga so much, such a funny carefree collection of stories.

phantomx Wait until you get to volume 2 and 3, more shenanigans and funny moments happen in the series. I'm so glad you enjoyed volume 1. 2y

1) Way of the Husband made me laugh so much.
2) The last book that (almost) made me cry was Locke & Key

Well this is the first #24in48 #not24in48 I haven't accomplished. However, after a very rough week my mind and body needed a reading weekend with my sisters. We were able to get a hotel room and lock ourselves away all weekend to read, eat, laugh, and talk. I could have reached 24 hours, but by 10:30 PM yesterday I was exhausted (the whole week catching up to me). I managed to finish six books (which was my goal). I almost finished my (cont.)

LitDrivenGirl second goal of 2 books per format. 2 paper ✅, 2 audiobooks ✅, 2 graphic novels ✅, & I didn't make it to 2 eBooks. I only separate it like that in my mind to help read more of what I have & typically I horde graphic novels as treats so that I don't devour & then am sad I have no more in a particular series. Otherwise all reading (formats) in my mind is reading! Hopefully summer #24in48 will be back in action & I'll be able to achieve it! 🧡 3y
Megabooks Great job!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3y

I like the premise of this, but it was a little one note at times. I'm curious to see where this series goes, I'd like to know why he's now a house husband instead of in the Yakuza.

This book was so much fun and I can't wait to read the next one! 😁 I wish I didn't read manga so fast because I got this from the library and now I have to wait for them to order the rest of the books. 😭
