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!
On what begins as just another shopping trip, Tatsu has a run-in with a thief—of the feline persuasion! When the gangster-turned-homemaker gives chase, yakuza are quickly drawn into the fray, and chaos erupts in the streets of the shopping district. Even everyday errands can turn treacherous when you’re the Immortal Dragon!
Just when I was starting to get a little bored with this series, the author knocked it out of the park. I laughed out loud at every single chapter in this volume. The first chapter sucked me in with a story about a mischievous and adorable cat, and that’s all it took. The stories continued to be hilarious throughout the book, as well, as Tatsu navigated some really funny scenarios in this one. I loved the return of characters from previous volumes, and I hope the future books continue to bring some of them back to have ongoing storylines, even if they are only loosely connected. Overall, this volume convinced me these books can continue being funny and enjoyable reads despite re-using the same gag over and over. It was simple yet effective. Therefore, I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars and am looking forward to picking up the next volume.
