Season 2 of the amusing The Way of the Househusband anime series will premiere on Netflix in January 2023, the company said recently. There were more than 30 new series debuting in April 2021 on the global anime programming docket, but one of the greatest was certainly Netflix’s The Way of the Househusband.
While the Netflix and J.C. Staff anime series may have sneaked up on some viewers, it was everything but a snooze, revealing how a notorious criminal deals with the everyday comedic conflicts that arise in his home. Here’s all you need to know about the upcoming second season of The Way of the Househusband on Netflix.
Househusband was originally written by Kousuke Oono and published as a manga. It centers on Tatsu, a former yakuza boss known as “the Immortal Dragon.” Tatsu decides to give up a life of crime in order to help his career-minded wife, Miku, financially, so he may put his abilities to use around the house.

The Twitter announcement asked, “What better way to start 2023?” Indeed, for followers of The One of the Househusband, there isn’t a better way. On December 4, 2022, Netflix Anime verified and announced on their official Twitter account that the second season of Tatsu would be available to stream on Netflix beginning on January 1, 2023.
The second season of The Way of the Househusband will be available to view immediately as a Netflix Original. The second season will also consist of two parts, following the same pattern as the first. Additionally, it is important to mention that The Way of the Househusband is an original net animation (ONA) that was published to the viewing public by Netflix.
What to Expect from The Way of House Husband Season 2’s Plotline?
Tatsu is notorious for his criminal past as a former Yakuza boss. Tatsu’s past criminal activity includes a wide range of potentially lethal offenses. Tatsu is eager to follow Miku’s lead when it comes to her. Tatsu appears to be on Miku’s side, and the two seem to get along well.
Season 1 Recap: “The Way of the Househusband”
Tatsu, a yakuza leader so loathed he was given the nickname “Immortal Dragon,” is the leading exponent of the househusband’s style. At the pinnacle of his criminal career, Tatsu abruptly gives it all up to become a stay-at-home husband.
He eventually finds stability and marries Miku, an ambitious professional who is also a hidden otaku infatuated with magical girl anime. The manga and anime are both brief slice-of-life stories depicting the unusual couple’s not-so-simple everyday life.
Tatsu’s menacing demeanor and appearance provide comic relief when set against the banal nature of the housework he takes so seriously. It’s also hilarious to watch him interact with and run into his old yakuza friends and foes.
The Way of HouseHusband Season 2 Cast
It has been assumed that the same actors from the show’s English dub will return for its second season. To that end, we anticipate the following from the cast:
- Jonah Scott to appear in the role of Tatsu
- Laura Post to appear in the role of Miku
- Andres Paul Ramacho to appear in the role of Masa

The Way Of The Househusband Season 2 Trailer
Although a release date has been announced, J.C.Staff has not yet provided any sort of trailer or promotional video teaser; when such a thing is made available, it will be posted on this page.
This is the opening theme from the first season, “Shufu no Michi,” so please listen to the entire song while you wait for the second. The song, performed by the Jrock trio Uchikubigokumon-Doukoukai, is exactly the kind of thing you’d expect to hear in an anime about a ruthless ex-yakuza ruler.
