Netflix has released a new trailer for the long-awaited anime series The Way of the Househusband.

The upcoming anime adaptation of Kousuke Oono's hugely-popular webcomic series follows the story of Tatsu, a former yakuza legend who chose to become a full-time househusband to his wife Miku.

In the trailer, the once feared yakuza turned ‘takusa’ now devotes his time doing ordinary household chores like cooking, cleaning, and grocery shopping.

Here’s the official synopsis of the series:

This world-class househusband was once a feared legendary member of the yakuza! “The Way of the Househusband” is the long-awaited anime adaptation of the cozy gangster comedy manga about “The Immortal Dragon,” a former yakuza member whose incredible feats are still talked about in the underworld, spending his daily life as a househusband!

Oono first released his webcomic series on Kurage Bunch as a five chapter limited series in 2018. The manga was later adapted into a live-action comedy drama on Nippon TV, which starred Hiroshi Tamaki as Tatsu and Haruna Kawaguchi as Miku.

The anime adaptation was first announced during Netflix’s Anime Festival last October. It will be directed by Chiaki Kon (Nodame Cantabile, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal the Movie) and will be produced by J.C. Staff.

The Way of the Househusband premieres globally on Netflix on April 8.
