The Eminence in Shadow anime’s plot can be summarized as the tale of a chuunibyou getting lucky. Cid is a hyper-imaginative kid who loves to make himself look more important than he is.
After waking up in an isekai world, he realizes that he can finally redo everything to achieve his ultimate goal: to be the mastermind behind some huge plot. As the anime progresses, you will slowly realize that Cid’s luck is a little too good.
The Eminence in Shadow anime will be released in October 2022. In its latest trailer, you will get a taste of Cid’s subordinates, who have no idea that their master is just delusional.
Cid has a team of super-beautiful women who act on his orders to demolish evil from society. Little do they know that they are just getting ordered by a whimsical guy.
Two such subordinates have been teased in the new video. Beta is the second in command and loves writing her own fan fiction on “The Shadow” (Cid). Gamma is the third in the order and has superior intelligence.
Beta, Gamma, and five other members form the elite Seven Shades in the Shadow Garden organization.
Now you must be wondering how such an organization was formed if Cid was just a whimsical kid. Everything started as a game when Cid said he wanted to defeat a dark cult. As it turns out, the cult actually exists.
Can this delusional protagonist defeat a full-fledged gang of villains?
