Netflix confirmed that the 2nd part of The Way of the Househusband anime will stream worldwide on October 7, 2021. It also revealed a trailer previewing the new characters.
Tomokazu Sugita joins the cast as Bob, Tatsu’s neighbor. Subaru Kimura voices over Gōda, an ex-yakuza turned rapper. Uchikubigokumon-Doukoukaiis, below, performs both the opening theme song “The Way of the Chiefi” (シュフノミチ), and the ending song “The Highway of the Househusband” (極・夫婦街道).
Tatsu is an infamous and feared yakuza boss nicknamed “the Immortal Dragon”, who retires from crime to become a househusband so that he can support Miku, his kyariaūman wife. The episodic series depicts a variety of comedic scenarios, typically wherein Tatsu’s banal domestic work as a househusband is juxtaposed against his intimidating personality and appearance, and his frequent run-ins with former yakuza associates and rivals.
