The start date of the anime “The Way of the Househusband” has been decided on April 8, 2021. It is based on the original work by Kousuke Oono. In addition, a few cast members were announced in the latest trailer.
“The Way of the Househusband” will air exclusively on Netflix worldwide. It is a comedy where a former legendary member of the Yakuza, Tatsu, called “Immortal Dragon,” masters the path of a full-time husband.
Kenjiro Tsuda, who played Tatsu in the live-action video, will be the voice actor for the role. Shizuka Ito will play the role of Ryu’s wife, Miku, and Kazuyuki Okitsu will play the role of Ryu’s former brother, Masa.
Ito commented on Miku’s charm, “Miku’s food is destructive, but she is still cute and irresistible.” Okitsu said that his character, Masa, “respects his big brother from the bottom of his heart!”
Trailers, key art, and scene cuts have been made available so far.
In the trailer, a “non-moving” production—one that is conscious of the frame division of manga—is adopted.
Chiaki Kon, who is the director of the anime, said that he wanted to “Make an animation just like the original manga. So there are many difficulties that you do not usually have to do. It wasn’t an easy work (laughs). ”
Oono, the original author, said, “I felt that it was a method that matched the tempo of the work. I felt that it wasn’t spoiled. Also, I think that the acting of the voice actor will be directly transmitted the character and I think I can enjoy it. ”
Furthermore, the theme song of the anime is handled by the Uchikubigokumon Club. They wrote the opening theme “Shufnomichi” and the ending theme “Goku/Married Couple Highway”, which sang about the feelings of Ryu as he tried to master the path of a full-time husband.
The manga is easily available online in English, and we highly encourage you to read it before the anime airs. It has a fun, interesting concept, and you can acquaint yourself with the series before the Netflix release date.
