The Way of the Househusband by Kousuke Oono
“Immortal” Tetsu was an infamous and terrifying yakuza member known for his ruthlessness against opposition—or at least he was until he retired. Now Tetsu is devoting himself to a new path as a… househusband?
In a yakuza-themed comedy The Way of the Househusband pairs Tetsu’s new passions of homemaking, DIY crafts, and doting on his wife with his inability to shake the aura and influence of his old profession. A humorous and feel-good series, it plays with comedic juxtaposition in the best of ways.

Spy x Family by Tatsuya Endo
Master spy Twilight has successfully completed dozens of mission—but he may have found his limit with the latest one. Now he must get married and find a kid in short order to infiltrate an elite school. Forced to act fast, he doesn’t look too closely at his choice of wife and child… Who happen to be an assassin and an escaped child experiment with telepathy.
With only the child having an idea at the many secrets in their family, Spy x Family is an action-packed comedy full of thinly veiled secrets and hilarious crossed wires as Twilight aims to complete his mission. And maybe starts to take this whole ‘family’ thing seriously.
