'The Way of the Househusband' Part 2 is officially happening!
There's a new hit anime series on Netflix that is trending both for good and bad reasons.
'The Way of the Househusband' premiered on Netflix a few days ago and it's already attracted global attention.
The show has been criticized for the lack of animation, but fans don't seem to mind. They fell in love with the characters and the storyline and have been eagerly anticipating more.
'The Way of the Househusband' is based on the popular Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kousuke Oono.
It follows Tatsu, an ex-yakuza boss who retires from crime to become a dedicated househusband to his wife, Miku.
The first part only released 5 episodes. So can we expect to see more from 'The Way of the Househusband'? Here's everything we know.
The hit Netflix anime series is officially coming back for more!
Netflix Japan's official Twitter account has confirmed that Part 2 will be released sometime in the future.
J.C. Staff, the same producer behind the anime series, will continue to work on part 2.
The anime series premiered on the streaming platform on April 8, 2021.
There is no specific release date yet as of the moment, and it's a bit complicated to guess when exactly part 2 will come out. Anime shows on Netflix have unpredictable release schedules.
Other anime series can release new seasons or part with just a few months gap, while others can take more than a year before getting a new season.
We will continue to look out for the latest news and update this article. Hence, feel free to get back to this link from time to time.
The first part ended with Tatsu finding a part-time job at the cafe. He bumps into the wife of a deceased yakuza boss. The wife now works in the supermarket to look after the needs of the remaining mafia members.
The general plot of the series revolves around this premise: Tatsu focuses his energy on becoming a good househusband, while occasionally running in with different mafia groups.
We are expecting to see Tatsu in a similar adventure in part 2.
The source material is incredible and is well-received by manga readers worldwide. However, the anime adaptation was quickly criticized for its mediocre animation. Some fans say it looks like a PowerPoint presentation.
Ok but why is the animation for Way of the Househusband like...that? It looks like a powerpoint presentation 🗿 pic.twitter.com/FE4vwqRrj5— yuyu @ 🐺 (@usagi_73) April 8, 2021
However, there are fans who still loved the show regardless of the criticisms.
I DONT CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS ABOUT HOW SHIT THE ANIMATION FOR THE WAY OF THE HOUSEHUSBAND ANIME IS I FUCKING LOVED IT AND FINISHED IT ALL IN ONE GO AND LAUGHED MY ASS OFF AT HOW COMEDIC AND WELL PUT IT WAS pic.twitter.com/C2waLbvpEE— nessa 🦋 (@MOJO__GOJO) April 9, 2021
Other fans even said that the "PowerPoint" animation style actually works better for the series.
I know most people are complaining about Way of the Househusband being a "powerpoint" but honestly? I think it works. There's something about it that makes the comedic delivery really snappy + the sound design makes it even better. It's got that Cromartie Highschool charm to it pic.twitter.com/XhXqHHTeSj— Jojo's Bizarre Sound Design (@JJBASoundDesign) April 8, 2021
There is no official trailer for part 2 yet, so we'll just have to extend our patience. At least, we can rest assured knowing that part 2 is already underway.
For now, we will leave you with the season 1 trailer.
