Check out the new The Eminence in Shadow Season 2 trailer below:
Based on the light novel series written by Daisuke Aizawa and illustrated by Tōzai, The Eminence in Shadow was originally released in 2019; the series was also adapted into a manga that same year. Both the light novel and manga are ongoing, with the series collected into five and 11 volumes so far — respectively.
“Some people just aren’t suited to playing the part of the flashy, in-your-face hero or the dastardly, mustache-twirling villain with larger-than-life panache,” reads the official synopsis for the series. “Instead, they operate in the shadows and pull the strings of society through wit and cleverness. That’s the role Cid wants to play when he’s transported to another world. Cid spins a yarn or three and becomes the unlikely leader of the underground Shadow Garden organization that fights against a threatening cult (which he totally made up). However, there’s a catch even his wild imagination didn’t see coming: the cult he concocted actually exists, and they’re beyond displeased that his power fantasy just got in the way of their evil plans!”
