L O V E I T An easy, fun, lovely piece that make you laugh non stop. The scariest yakuza is now a home stay husband but people keep seeing him as a yakuza, even though he now live a simpler life his manners and looks remind us that he can slash us if he choose to. I would love to see this on anime version keeping the art style that help in the whole vibe "gap between looks and content" FYI: the yoga an flea market are my top 2 chapters 😂😂
The humor comes from the gap between a yakuza-looking guy doing normal household tasks. He's doing his shopping, cooking, cleaning, and other chores while having a resting face that looks like he's glaring and with a comical level of intensity and passion--mannerisms which he picked up from his time in the yakuza. He used to be known as the Immortal Dragon and was feared in the underworld. We see him interacting with his wife, with the neighborhood ladies, with the people in the market, and with his old acquaintances from his time in the yakuza. Some of them are still in the yakuza, but some have also taken on more normal jobs (a crepe stand owner, a grocery store clerk). Generally the humor is based on him being unintentionally scary, either in appearance or from his word choice, which leads to misunderstandings. Along with that type of humor, there is also some slapstick, with several scenes having people getting hit in the face. It's a cute and generally pleasant manga. The main reason I rated it as only a 6 is because, even though it's enjoyable, it's not laugh-out-loud funny and it can feel a bit repetitive. Though, to be fair, I feel like I tend to rate gag manga a bit lower on the scale since they're entirely dependent on how well their jokes land and how fresh their jokes feel over the course of the manga.
