"Immortal Tatsu," the legendary yakuza who single-handedly defeated a rival gang with a lead pipe, is a name known to strike fear in both hardened police officers and vicious criminals. Soon after his sudden disappearance, he resurfaces with a slight change in profession. Now equipped with an apron, Tatsu has given up violence and is trying to make an honest living as a house husband. While adapting to mundane household tasks, Tatsu finds that being a house husband has its own challenges, from the battlefield known as supermarket sales to failures in the kitchen. Despite living peacefully, misunderstandings seem to follow him left and right. Gokushufudou follows the daily life of the comically serious ex-yakuza as he leaves behind his dangerous previous life to become a stay-at-home husband.

Likely the first time that the live action adaptation is better than the anime. It’s like those YouTube vids of people dubbing manga panels.


definition of netflix anime


I like the characters but it’s barely animated at least it’s funny sometimes but by episode 4 the gags kind of get old


Love it, Pure comedy.


Better read in induvial chapters, there isn’t any main plot. The manga is more enjoyable.


Basically coloured manga with a bit of animation but what kills it is that it doesn’t adjust the gags to fit the medium. It’s disappointing.



    can i kwill u plis 🥺🥺
