Volume two has even more adventures in the life of a yakuza hit man trying to carry out his duties as a househusband. In this volume, we see The Immortal Dragon attend fitness classes and punish himself fiercely for accidentally entering the women’s locker room. He also puts a serious hit on laundry stains. The cops following him into a birthday party have to eat some serious crow (and cake) when they find out the herbs he's been growing and distributing really are basil and oregano, not street oregano. Also presented is another installment in the adventures of Gin the cat, which really could be another hilarious and entertaining series on its own.
If it’s possible, this volume is more hilarious than the first. I read this volume while out at a restaurant enjoying some lunch, and I laughed out loud on several occasions to interrupt other socially-distance patrons. The Immortal Dragon just approaches all of life's tasks with a seriousness that is over the top but works out perfectly for each situation. I never would approach stains on my laundry with as much fervor as he, but the stains lose every time. The illustrations also perfectly compliment the crazy situations the Dragon finds himself in, so that the whole title is enjoyable and truly laugh-out-loud enjoyable.
VIZ rates this for Teen Plus for a bit of violence and blood, and some language.
