Mr. Villain’s Day Off Anime Premieres!

By Ben Gritz | January 8 2024 | Manga, Manhwa, Manhua

Mr. Villain’s Day Off — the low-stakes relaxing series about a supervillain who just wants to visit the zoo when he’s not making plans for world domination — has an anime release hitting Crunchyroll streaming on 1/8!  I think the idea of a Doctor Doom-level villain having a soft spot in his heart for panda bears is a very funny pitch for a manga series.  And everyone can commiserate with the “working for the weekend” aspect of The General’s quest to fight his way to another day off.

A secondary plotline running through this series is when our protagonist anti-hero’s relaxation time is discovered by his nemesis, a heroic member of Earth’s Rangers.  Will the two begin trading blows once discovered, or will they agree to let things go when the weekend is concerned?

All available titles are listed below, make sure you take a look at the awesome trailer here, and be sure to stock up and be ready as your manga fans discover and enjoy this sure-to-be streaming hit!
