The anime and The Ingenuity of the Househusband are both available for streaming on Netflix.
The Way of the Househusband live-action film will be directed by Tochiro Ruto, who previously directed the Nippon TV live-action drama.

Guest performances and the movie’s plot will be announced at a later date.
The Way of the Househusband mangaka, Kousouke Oono, made a statement about the upcoming project:”I was very happy when I heard about the movie ‘The Way of the Househusband,’ thank you. Being able to watch it on the big screen of a movie theater has a different surprise and expectation from the drama.”
Oono continued, “The cast members are just addicted to the role, and I’m looking forward to seeing the rampaging on the big screen. While the story interweaves the episodes of the original, there are new developments and new characters unique to the movie, and of course I think that it will be enjoyable for both beginners and those who have watched the original and drama. I hope everyone will come and enjoy the theater.”
