Netflix has a habit of serving its anime fans with some unique adaptations. For manga fans of The Way of the Househusband, or Gokushufudou, 2021 comes wrapped with good surprises. Earlier this year in spring, Netflix released the anime, which received a massive amount of response which was filled with some missed reviews. Although a lot of viewers made negative remarks about the series for its unmoving animation, the series continued to grow popular because a number of viewers absolutely loved it. The animation might not have been the most appealing, but the show makes up for it with the hilarious storyline and Tsuda Kenjiro’s outstanding performance in the anime as the lead voice actor. Of course, the anime was loved by many despite the negative reviews as The Way of the Househusband Season 2 was announced to confirm its popularity.

By 2021, the manga was adapted into an Original net animation, and barely five months later, The Way of the Househusband Season 2 was announced.
