You know… I’d also have taken “Hench!” for a title on this one.
Yesterday, news broke that Production I.G’s “Tate Anime” app will stream an anime adaptation of Cherubim’s Baito Saki wa Aku no Soshiki!? (My Part Time Job’s at an Evil Organization?!) light novel. The first episode will go live on November 13.

The Baito Saki wa Aku no Soshiki!? novel made its début on novel submission site Everystar. Kadokawa picked the title up and released it across two volumes, which hit stores in 2011 and 2012. A manga adaptation by artist koma was released from 2014 through 2015 on Everystar. Shogakukan picked up koma’s manga, and released the title across three compiled volumes.
Manga resource Baka-Updates describes Baito Saki wa Aku no Soshiki!? as:
Arihisa Aokura needs money. He needs money in order to support his family of orphans and earn a living at the same time. Looking online for potential employers, he finds a posting for a part time job in an “evil organization.” Seeing that the pay and benefits were fairly substantial, he took the chance and took the interview. He was somehow hired and now has to work as a henchman inside the evil organization “Antares.” Will he be able to survive the onslaught of missions against heroes while providing for his orphan brothers and sisters?
