Inspired by the Japanese manga series by Kousuke Oono of the same name, ‘The Way of the Househusband’ is a slice-of-life comedic ONA series. The program follows Tatsu, a notorious yakuza leader who intends to leave the underworld to live a regular life with his girlfriend, oblivious to the comedic danger he is courting.
The protagonist’s mundane existence is constantly disrupted and sometimes rendered exciting by the constant intervention of his former pals as he attempts to acclimate to his new environment.
On its first airing on April 8, 2021, the anime won over audiences and reviewers with its entertaining tales and compelling narrative. You’ve probably been thinking about the show’s third season ever since the second one ended. We have you covered if that is a concern of yours.
The Way of the Househusband Season 3 Release Date
There is no word yet on when we may expect to see Season 3 of The Way of the Househusband. Nevertheless, if we were to speculate on when the next episode would be released, we’d say sometime in 2024.
This 2024 release date assumption is based to on the reality that The Way of the Househusband recently ended its season 2 run. The first episode of the second season of the animated series premiered on Netflix in January 2023, and the second episode premiered on February 21. This means there will be a delay until we see any new episodes.
Season 3 of The Way of the House Husband has not been announced at this time. Kousuke Oono’s manga has been adapted into an immensely successful comedy series, and there is still lots of material to work with. It’s thus just a matter of time until a renewal is officially announced. Read on for more information!
The Way of the Househusband Story
After decades of being known as “the Immortal Dragon” among the yakuza, Tatsu decides to give up his criminal career and become a househusband for the sake of his kyaria’man wife, Miku. The episodic series presents a wide range of comic events, most of which include Tatsu’s frightening demeanor and look at being at odds with his mundane domestic labor as a house-husband and his regular encounters with old yakuza allies and competitors.

The Way of the Househusband Season 2 Review
The second season of The Way of the Househusband has more crazier tales, and we get to know Tatsu a bit better. Some of his more recent characteristics even shock Miku, so you’re aware this is serious business. Not only is Tatsu seldom challenged, but the narrative of The Eight Dragons is also rather endearing.
Each episode of the 17-minute-long series has numerous tales. Every tale is distinct but equally amusing. Yet, they all continue to make logic together. Tatsu’s recurring role as the season’s kid-friendly entertainer is a particular highlight. I really like the scene when a youngster threatens him and breaks his spirit. But he constantly discovers a way to adapt to new circumstances, often by combining elements from his past and present.
I really like this series as a whole. It’s a delightfully hilarious, breezy, and heartwarming film. As usual, it warms my heart to see Tatsu give his all to his responsibilities as a househusband. The way he cares for his friends and family, especially Miku and Masa, is heartwarming.
