He was once feared as a yakuza legend called “Immortal Tatsu”. Just mentioning his Yakuza name left his enemies shaken to the core. And rightly so, because Immortal Tatsu mows down entire gangs on its own without even blinking an eyelid.
But that is now a thing of the past: Tatsu decides to change his life. From now on, tokens, pots and feather dusters are his weapons. You read that right, Tastu decides to become a househusband. As much as he tries, his reputation is always one step ahead … only his wife is not at all impressed by it.
