“Tatsu the Immortal,” the legendary yakuza who single-handedly defeated a rival gang with a lead pipe, is a name known for instilling fear in both the toughest policemen and the most dangerous criminals. Shortly after his sudden disappearance, he reappears with a slight career change. Now equipped with an apron, Tatsu has renounced violence and is honestly trying to make a living as a householder.
While adjusting to mundane housework, Tatsu discovers that being a homemaker has its own challenges, from the battlefield known as supermarket sales to kitchen failures. Despite living in peace, misunderstandings seem to follow him from left to right. Gokushufudou follows the comically serious ex-yakuza’s everyday life as he leaves his dangerous former life behind to become a stay-at-home husband.
