Summary
It's a day in the life of your average househusband--if your average househusband is the legendary yakuza "the Immortal Dragon"!

A former yakuza legend leaves it all behind to become your everyday househusband. But it's not easy to walk away from the gangster life, and what should be mundane household tasks are anything but!

He was the fiercest member of the yakuza, a man who left countless underworld legends in his wake. They called him "the Immortal Dragon." But one day he walked away from it all to travel another path--the path of the househusband! The curtain rises on this cozy yakuza comedy!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Tatsu is a legend in his own time he's called ""the Immortal Dragon."" But Tatsu has a new job: now he battles robotic vacuums and is learning to dominate bargain sale battlegrounds. A former member of the yakuza who once fought ten rival gangs in a single night, Tatsu is now working to be as fierce at keeping house as he was at keeping his underlings in line. Each short chapter is a vignette about anything from the character making a bento lunch for his wife to teaching the neighborhood kids he's babysitting how to play dice. The consistent throughline is Tatsu as the straight man: always serious, always sincere, and always glowering dangerously over his sunglasses at whatever is vexing him. The character designs are perfect for a comedy about a bad guy transitioning into becoming a traditional stay-at-home househusband, with Tatsu cold and gritty, like something out of a gekiga manga, while the neighbors are softer and his wife, an anime fan, is straight out of shojo. Great for Yotsuba&! fans who are ready to level up.--Eva Volin Copyright 2020 Booklist"
