Welcome to 極主夫道 ・The Way of the Househusband, Volume 2
Note: We read Volume 1 as the Beginner Book Club!, and are continuing to read as an offshoot book club.
If you want to take part, just buy the book and join in the discussion! We also recommend setting this thread to ‘watching’ so that you get notified when the discussion threads are posted.
Not sure if this is for you? Check out the Nomination Post and read the first chapter for free on bookwalker - remember that your fellow book club members and the vocab sheet will be here to help you out though!
Buy the Book

Are you planning to read Volume 2?
- Not sure
- I just live for polls
If you’ve already read it, and will join the discussion, please mark “Yes.”
We start back up January 28!
Also, how does one make a poll such that you can see WHO voted?
For the poll advanced options, click the gear icon in the lower right side of the Build Poll pop-up:
There you will find a checkbox to “Show who voted”
Just got back from the book store with volumes two and three. Started to open up my usual reading resources but… am I missing something? The weekly links are empty and the vocab sheet is in read-only mode with page numbers and notes from the first volume’s sheet.
I’m a day late.
I have now started the chapter 10 discussion thread.
Are you ready for your weekly dose of Yakuza themed laughs?
Week 2 discussion thread here, y’all!
Happy Friday/Saturday, depending on where you live…
The week 3 discussion thread is now live!
The week 4 discussion thread is now live.
I’m going to bow out for the moment … The kanji in this book is just difficult enough for me that it takes something away from the fun and comedy, so I’m going to pause until I can enjoy it more thoroughly.
Thanks so much for running the offshoot club @Wildjinjer! Hope you all keep having fun with this series.
The week 5 discussion thread is live.
Week 6 discussion thread is now live:)
Since there are at least 5 of us who plan to keep reading, I plan to keep running the club (unless someone wants to take over).
- Take a week off, and start volume 3 March 19
- Start volume 3 March 12
Or, I can just totally ignore the poll results and start the new book club thread on the 19.
