The anime adaptation of Kousuke Oono’s The Way of the Househusband (Gokushufudo) manga is receiving a second season, which will release in January 2023, according to information shared at the Netflix Tudum Japan Livestream event on Sunday.
The first five episodes of the anime were released on Netflix in April 2021. In October 2021, the second installment had its global Netflix premiere.
The new season of the anime is set to feature the original cast and staff who worked on the manga during its first season. Assuming that the plot will still revolve around Tatsu’s daily life as a househusband, the following voice actors will most probably return to reclaim their roles are:
- Kenjiro Tsuda (the voice of Nanami from Jujutsu Kaisen) as Tatsu, a former Yakuza-turned-househusband after he met his beautiful wife, Miku.
- Shizuku Itou (the voice of Irina Jelavic from the Assassination Classroom TV) as Miku, the working wife of Tatsu
- Kazuyuki Okitsu (the voice of Hatori Sohma from Fruits Basket) as Masa, Tatsu’s former subordinate who had been looking for him ever since he went out of the Yakuza business. He still acts like his subordinate, but now he is training to be a Househusband like Tatsu.
- Yoshimasa Hosoya (the voice of Reiner Braun from Attack on Titan) as Torajirou, Tatsu’s former opponent in the Yakuza world. He now also has left the fighting scene and is working as a crepe maker.
The director of the series is Chiaki Kon (Bleach, Blue Dragon, Junjou Romantica), and the series composition and screenplay will be by Susumu Yamakawa (Back Street Girls: Gokudols, Kiyo in Kyoto: from the Mauko House). Key animation will be by Akito Fujiwara (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures, Bakugan).

The series is about Tatsu, who spends his time as a househusband carrying out home chores. MAL Rewrite describes the plot of the story:
“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.MAL Rewrite
