Netflix’s latest anime release, ‘The Way of the Househusband’, led to some disappointment for fans of the manga.
‘The Way of the Househusband’ is a hit manga series with 7 Volumes. It revolves around Tatsu, a legendary and fearful boss nicknamed “the Immortal Dragon,” who stops working from crime to become a househusband for his wife.
The live-action adaptation of the series was a success in Japan, so fans of the manga were expecting the new anime to live up to the same hype. Unfortunately, the fans were disappointed and some have even compared the animation style to a PowerPoint presentation.
Holy crap, it’s literally JUST the manga panels redrawn!
I’ve seen powerpoint presentations with more animation

Completed Way of the House Husband
Disappointment is the best way to describe this, had fun but this is the BARE minimum of effort to even call this an anime is stretching. The VA & story is great but that is literally the source material & voice actors doing all the work. 6/10 pic.twitter.com/i02girRNj2

It’s not hate, but the fact that people expect an anime to have animation, what this anime doesn’t have…
— Marcel Proust (@QuasenovinhoSla) April 8, 2021
Fans cannot be blamed, as other animes in their catalog have been well-made, such as ‘Demon Slayer’ and ‘My Hero Academia’. Simply put, The Way of the Househusband failed to impress its fans and viewers.
With this feedback, will you still be watching The Way of the Househusband, are you going to skip it?
