The anime series “The Way of Househusband” will finally premiere on streaming entertainment service Netflix next month.

“The Way of The Husband” is based on a story by Kosuke Oona.

It tells the story of Tatsu, feared among the yakuza as “The Immortal Dragon.” He is a legend of the underworld with an impressive number of defeated rival gangs under his belt. However, hoping to wash his hands of his past, Tatsu gets married and devotes himself fully to the way of the househusband by diligently undertaking the cooking, cleaning, washing and grocery shopping each day.

On the other hand, there’s one person who’s not happy about Tatsu’s new domestic life — his tough, former yakuza underling, Masa.

As Tatsu tries his best to pursue the way of the househusband, one assassin after another tries their hand at taking him out.

On Monday, Netflix confirmed the release date of “The Way of The Househusband” with a trailer drop. It is slated to premiere on the platform on April 8.

The streaming giant also released key art and unit photos of the series.
