Synopsis: The mysterious and dastardly man known only as the General within the evil organization plotting to take over the world is one of the top targets of Earth’s defensive unit, the Rangers. But on his precious days off, he’s more likely to be at the local zoo staring at his beloved pandas or trying out new ice cream flavors.
Will his secret hobbies be jeopardized forever when his natural enemy-a Ranger hero out to save the Earth-catches him in the act?
An anime adaptation for Mr. Villain’s Day Off is currently in development as well.

Synopsis: Himuro is a modern-day ice god, an ordinary office worker who just so happens to be the descendant of a snow spirit. He’s also besotted with his coworker Fuyutsuki, who’s a little unusual herself. At first glance, the pair both seem to be calm, cool, and collected. But beneath Himuro’s icy good looks rages a passionate blizzard of love.
On the other hand, his coworker’s cool facade belies nothing about any feelings she might have for Himuro in return-because she’s too oblivious to realize anything! What’s a snowman in love to do?
