Tatsu, The Immortal Dragon is back at his antics. He's brandishing a bottle of bug spray against The Black Bullet - a cockroach - who has been sent by an unknown enemy group. Later, he takes a gig serving food in a restaurant to some really jumpy gentlemen who are probably still in the business. Bargain hunting at the supermarket is made even more entertaining when a down-and-out mob boss' wife takes a job as a checker and double charges Tatsu for an item. Tatsu tries to help his wife Miku relax after several long days at work, and he of course takes it to the Nth degree. A touching reunion with his former boss allows The Immortal Dragon to show his domestic side to the fearsome former head of the Yakuza Crime family.
Tatsu continues to hilariously bring his hit-man attitude to everyday tasks. Who would have thought that watching someone kill a cockroach or cook meals would be this entertaining? In this volume, we do get a little more depth of character to Miku, the wife of the immortal dragon. She can also be pretty intense, especially in her love for the show Policure. But, she is also painfully shy and can't stand any sort of public speaking. While slice-of-life comedies generally don't build a lot or have tons of exposition, I would love to see how Tatsu left the Yakuza, and how he and Mika met. I'll still be satisfied with lots of chapters of Tatsu's "everyday" life.
VIZ rates this for Teen Plus for a bit of violence and blood, and some language.
