GOODREADS BLURB

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!

MY THOUGHTS

I thought this was quite a fun manga. It follows a legendary yakuza legend, the Immortal Dragon as he lives his life as a house husband. But the problem is, he left a trail of destruction in his wake, and everyone wants to find him again. We watch as he tries to live his normal life, away from the yakuza and the effects that it has on him.

The characters were funny, some were so shocked to see the immortal dragon that they landed in funny situations. Or when we see the dragon in a cooking class, making a diy chair or taking photos of his food. There were just so many situations where you couldn’t help but laugh.

Some of the darker background bits however, were my favourite and I think thats just because of my preference of topics. We saw scenes before and after a massive fight of some kind, and saw the darkness that hid under his skin. I really liked those scenes, and probably would have loved some kind of prequel touching on this time of his life.

but, overall it felt like it was nothing more than a funny story. The plot was there, but seemed to be only there to prop up the humorous scenes and characters. I couldn’t really see a large or overarching story coming through, but since I don’t read comedy seinen, I’m unsure if that’s normal. So perhaps this point isn’t really a good point, if you read comedy senien, tell me if it is! But that was one of my biggest issues with this story.

Overall I think this is actually a really decent comedy seinen, but it just really wasn’t for me which is why it’s only gotten a 3 star rating for me because I just didn’t enjoy it. But I think others would love this if you’re into humorous contemporary books, or seinen manga!
