He goes by many names but the most infamous one has to be “The Immortal Dragon”. If you were unlucky enough to have made his acquaintance during the time this legendary yakuza was actively involved in his many killing sprees assignments, well, さよなら私の友達 (sayonara, my friend).
But if like us, you only knew of Tatsu as a dedicated househusband in Netflix’s The Way of the Househusband, who leads a pretty mundane life after retiring from a life of crime, then you’re in luck in more ways than one. Our obsession with Tatsu has led to us spending hours analysing his yakuza life, and guess what? We’re more similar than you think.
Let’s not kid ourselves. We’ve all become plant parents or have thought of becoming one in the past year, since the start of the pandemic. Just like Tatsu, deep down inside, we’ve got so much love to share.
Cooking new recipes or learning to make some new dishes has in one way or another taken up most of our free time. Those Tasty videos and viral TikTok recipes got the better of us, but that’s ok ‘cause if it’s good enough for Tatsu, it’s good enough for us.
Talking to our pets has become one of the ways we’ve gotten physical interaction from another living being. From heartfelt conversations to reprimanding them for not listening to our advice, we’ve done it all. And who’s to say they don’t actually understand us?
Aaahhhh… fitness. A growing love-hate relationship that’s survived longer than many of our “real” ones. Yoga, Zumba, dance, barre, and HIIT, we’ve done it all and survived through most of them. We do have our own Immortal Dragon in us, after all.
In 2020, many eCommerce sites have experienced a surge due to the pandemic. Most of us have been spending our time (and money) on online shopping but sometimes, what we see is not what we get. Always remember, “wear the clothes and don’t let them wear you”. So, summon your inner Tatsu and rock that unexpectedly cute pink and frilly top with confidence!
Looks familiar? Been there, done that. With so many deals and steals, it’s sometimes hard to resist the urge to shop. When else are you gonna get that amazing pair of pants for 75% off? Note: We’re not really the “Immortal Dragon” so remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
