The Way of the Househusband returns for a second part on Netflix

April 16, 2021

While anime fans still question the quality of The Way of the Househusband’s production, Netflix has been busy revamping the series for a second part. It is not yet clear when the anime will return, but we can confirm that Netflix will release Part 2 of The Way of the Househusband in the near future. We’ll keep you updated with everything you need to know about Part 2 of The Way of the Househusband, including news, manga coverage, trailers, and most importantly, the Netflix release date.

The Way of the Househusband is a Netflix original animated comedy series and an adaptation of the Japanese manga series Gokushufudō by author Kousuke Oono. The production team behind the anime is JC Staff, who have previously hosted other Netflix Originals such as the disastrous life of saiki k.2, Back Street Girls, and Hi-Score Girl.

In criminal circles, Tatsu was once a legendary member of the Yazuka, once defeating a rival gang on his own when he was only equipped with a lead pipe. The “Immortal Tatsu” sows terror in the hearts and minds of policemen and criminals. Shortly after disappearing, Tatsu reappears, now trying to earn an honest living as his wife Miku’s housewife. Becoming a homemaker is a new challenge for Tatsu, who has to deal with kitchen setbacks and dreaded supermarket sales.

The Way of the House Husband Part 2 – Netflix Renewal Status

The Way of the House Husband was an immediate hit on Netflix, already appearing on dozens of Netflix’s top 10 charts in various countries around the world. Arguably, it was the quality of the animation or the lack of animation in the anime that caused many people to watch the series on their own.

If you put the popularity of anime aside, Part 1 only started with five episodes, which is unusual for most anime. Therefore, the announcement of the arrival of the second part is not a great surprise.

Does the story need a second part?

Fortunately, with an anime like The Way of the Househusband, each episode is relatively self-contained and focuses on Tatsu’s escapades since his retirement as the leader of the Yakuza and his new life as a housewife.

Cast Members Returning for The Way of the Househusband Part 2

We can expect the following cast to reprise their roles in Part 2 of The Way of the House Husband:

Kenjirou Tsuda – Tatsu
Shizuka Itou – Miku
Kazuyuki Okitsu – Dough
Atsuko Tanaka – Hibari Torii
Mao Ichimichi – Geneva
Yoshimasa Hosoya – Torajirou

What is the Netflix release date for The Way of the Househusband part 2?

The speed with which the series was revamped for Part 2 leads us to believe that Part 2 was already in development before Part 1 was released.

Sadly, Netflix has yet to reveal a release date for Part 2, so all we can do at this point is speculate on the release date.

We could see the anime returning to Netflix before the end of 2021, probably between October and December.

Can we expect to see a third of The Way of the House Husband?

It’s also worth noting that the anime has only covered about 26 manga chapters, and as of this writing, there are currently 69 chapters in total. That means we could easily watch a third of it on Netflix and potentially a quarter of it.
