In this volume’s slices of Tatsu's life: he has tea with a few other housewives and, while he’s recounting his time in the mob, they think he’s talking about his wife, Miku, and think she's hardcore; he helps a young boy with his summer assignments and goes a bit overboard; he gets Masa set up with a bunch of household gadgets from the 100 yen store; a cat burglar (an actual cat) steals a fish from Tatsu and he gives chase; and Tatsu and Miku go to an amusement park but get rained out halfway through their day.
This volume wasn’t as funny as the previous volumes, so it's possible that the joke is starting to wear a little thin, or that these adventures just weren't as entertaining. A lot of the most humorous parts of this series comes from other characters also doing things that are unexpected, and there weren't as many of those moments this time around. However, I still enjoyed the basic premise of a mobster approaching everyday life in a very intense fashion, so I'll definitely keep reading, but there is a possibility that interest will wane if the joke isn't kept fresh.
