When will Tatsu marry me?!
Is this the most simple premise ever? Yes.
Is this the most continually silly and fun manga series out right now? For me, yes.
Listen, who doesn’t want to marry Tatsu at this point? Show up and clean my kitchen and make me dinner you glorious, terrifying nerd. Go buy my favorite fandom stuff for me you energetic, wacky genius. I will pay you in all my love.
This series has the same general setup for every single volume. Tatsu is scary and intense but is a househusband and just wants to take care of his family life and house. He dresses up in outfits to help cheer up sick kids, makes bootleg non-alcoholic drinks, and sews outfits for a dog’s birthday. Also, can we all just appreciate his wife, Miku for a minute? Talk about a badass. She works a high-powered job all day, watches her favorite shows with her hot husband who makes her dinner, and saved his actual life which led them to fall in love. I can’t decide if I want to be her or marry her. Either way is fine.
Just read this series, it’s such a cheer-up read!
