It is weird that I like this so much? Didn't really mind the "animation" style, I felt like it gave the whole thing a little comedic punch on top of the amazing work of the seiyuus. It certainly looks like Netflix's paycheck to Tsudaken served them well. But why is this so short though...

Shockingly low effort adaptation... The manga panels are serving 1:1 as the screenplay with little animation on screen and lots of poorly drawn models and details. Might as well not have adapted this.

Wholesome and funny. I love it!

This is a animated comic, not an anime. So don't go in expecting more than a slideshow, but it's a damn good slideshow. I'm sure fans of the manga are disappointed, I was when I saw how lackluster Dr.Stone's anime was, but the lack of animation still works cause the comedy is so god damn god. The main visuals come across well enough and the formula of former Yakuza doing normal thing but making it look like Yakuza thing is absolutely incredible. I constantly laughed & my big complaint was that the show has so few episodes, I wanted more. I haven't read the manga but I'm definitely going to at some point now, if fans of the manga were disappointed in this, then I am very, very excited to read the manga, cause this is a real fun watch

I must say honestly a bit disappointed at how short it is and the animation style. The comedy is great and the plot is good too but it’s completely low effort. It’s like Netflix completely gave up. Not only did I get through it in like an hour, there is barely any conclusion, nor anything else. It is not fit as a show in the state it is in, and it’s not supposed to be because manga works in a completely different way. It just sort of ends and makes you feel completely unsatisfied. And like I mentioned before, the animation is something a high schooler could have done honestly, it’s exactly what you see on YouTube done by people.

LITTTT! Breaks sexist connotations. I like why the whole idea here is that, him being a househusband was shocking because he was Yakuza and not because he’s a man. I don’t know. T’was refreshing.

One of my favourite mangas brought to life, and Netflix has done a pretty decent job. The English dub voice acting is good, too. While the animation style didn't appeal to me at first, I admit it has since grown on me.

Liked the **Manga**, But am a little disappointed with the _motionless_ animation.

I finished watching the whole thing the other day. I appreciate them for trying to stay faithful to the original source. Clearly, the live-action is much better in terms of exploring Tatsu's character as a former yakuza and a househusband.

avatar

Absolutely hilarious and Tatsu is the perfect guy lol. He needs a new wife though... Miku is annoying as f!

avatar

He needs a new wife... Miku is annoying AF! -.-

This was an amazing concept and really hilarious to watch. It became a little repetitive but I still enjoyed every episode of this show.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
