While anime fans may still be scratching their heads on the quality of the production of The Way of the Househusband, Netflix has been busy renewing the series a part 2. It’s currently unknown when the anime will return, but we can confirm that Netflix will release part 2 of The Way of the Househusband sometime in the near future. We’ll be keeping track of everything you need to know about part 2 of The Way of the Househusband, including news, manga coverage, trailers, and most importantly the Netflix release date.
The Way of the Househusband is a Netflix Original comedy anime series and adaptation of the Japanese manga series Gokushufudō by author Kousuke Oono. The production team behind the anime is J.C. Staff who have previously animated other Netflix Originals such as The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. 2, Back Street Girls, and Hi-Score Girl.
In the criminal underworld, Tatsu was once a legendary member of the Yazuka, who once defeated a rival gang single-handedly while only equipped with a lead pipe. The “Immortal Tatsu” strikes fear into the hearts and minds of police officers and criminals alike. Soon after disappearing, Tatsu resurfaces, now trying to make an honest living as a house husband to his wife Miku. Becoming a househusband poses a new challenge for Tatsu as he must contend with kitchen mishaps and dreaded supermarket sales.
The Way of the House Husband Part 2 Netflix Renewal Status
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Renewed (Last Updated: 14/04/2021)
The Way of the House Husband has been an immediate hit on Netflix, already making it into dozens of top ten lists on Netflix in different countries around the world. Arguably, the quality of the animation or lack thereof of the anime is what may have lead many to watch the series for themselves.
Putting aside the popularity of the anime, the first part only debuted with five episodes, which is an unusual amount for most anime. So the announcement that part 2 is on the way doesn’t come as a huge surprise.
Does the story need a part 2?
Thankfully with an anime like The Way of the Househusband, each episode is relatively self-contained and focuses on the antics of Tatsu since his retirement as a Yakuza boss and his new life as a househusband.
Cast members returning for The Way of the Househusband part 2
We can expect to see the following cast members to return to reprise their roles in part 2 of The Way of the House Husband:
- Kenjirou Tsuda – Tatsu
- Shizuka Itou – Miku
- Kazuyuki Okitsu – Masa
- Atsuko Tanaka – Hibari Torii
- Mao Ichimichi – Gin
- Yoshimasa Hosoya – Torajirou
When is the Netflix release date for The Way of the Househusband part 2?
Thanks to how fast the series was renewed for part 2 leads us to believe that part 2 was already in development before the release of part 1.
Unfortunately, Netflix has yet to reveal a release date for part 2 so all we can do for now is speculate on the release date.
We could see the anime make its return to Netflix before the end of 2021, most likely between October to December.
Can we expect to see a part 3 of The Way of the House Husband?
It must also be noted that the anime has only covered roughly 26 chapters of the manga, and at the time of writing there is currently 69 chapters in total. This means we could easily see a part 3 on Netflix, and potentially a part 4.
