Tsuda Kenjiro seems to fit a badass househusband perfectly, and we’re getting more of it! The voice actor first starred in a live-action promotional video for The Way of the Househusband before, and he then voiced Tatsu in the anime adaptation of the series. He also got a special live-action series recently where he acted as himself. Now, both the Tsuda Kenjiro live-action series and the anime of househusband will get more episodes on October 7, and we’ll be hearing more of his awesome voice soon!

A special short live-action series titled The Ingenuity of the Househusband and starring Tsuda Kenjiro as himself back on August 29. It had 5 episodes lasting 4-5 minutes, and streamed exclusively on Netflix.

A tough guy with a knack for housework tackles household tasks with meticulous care in these comedic live-action vignettes.
The Way of the Househusband
The live-action came after the The Way of the Househusband TV anime from J.C. Staff, which had Tsuda Kenjiro as the main character Tatsu’s voice actor. It adapted the Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kousuke Oono, and it also had 5 episodes. It was released on April 8, 2021, though the episodes were closer to 20 minutes. Part 2 was confirmed, and it will release on October 7 as well.
Viz describes the story:
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! He was the fiercest member of the yakuza, a man who left countless underworld legends in his wake. They called him “the Immortal Dragon.” But one day he walked away from it all to walk another path — the path of the househusband! The curtain rises on this cozy yakuza comedy!
October 7th isn’t that far away, and we’ll be seeing/hearing househusband Tsuda Kenjiro a lot more!
