In preparation for the upcoming live-action film The Way of the Househusband, Sony Pictures Japan has released a short clip on their YouTube channel, depicting two minor characters gossiping in a restaurant but it’s long before their conversation ends on a hilarious note.
The clip features Masa (voiced by Jun Shison) talking to Yukari Omae (voiced by Tina Tamashiro), a new character who is a part-time cafe waitress/college student. The two talked about the main character, Tatsu, and his ‘lack-of’ relationship with his rival – Torajirou’s sister Koharu. But eventually, Yukari gets annoyed with Masa for obsessively talking about Koharu only and she retaliates by hitting him on the head, followed by setting a hot plate on his hands.
Way of the Househusband is popular manga series that was released back in 2018. It follows Tatsu, a former yakuza-turned-househusband who lives his new life supporting his wife Miku.
