Engaging PV of ‘Eminence in Shadow’ Announces New Movie in Production!

‘The Eminence in Shadow’ is a satirical tongue-in-cheek deconstruction of the isekai genre. It’s funny, over-the-top, and cringe. Overall, it’s a fun departure from the constant stream of isekai shows.

Fans of this fantasy anime were in for a big surprise at this weekend’s season 2 event: a trailer for a new movie!

A special event revealed a teaser video for Daisuke Aizawa’s ‘The Eminence in Shadow – Lost Echoes’ film.

The trailer features Cid fighting in what looks like a devastated Japan. Mordred seems completely uncomfortable with a “noise” in the classroom, and suddenly, his world is turned upside-down.

The announcement was accompanied by an “ultra visual” featuring a devastated Japan.

Nakanishi Kazuya is the director of the upcoming film, and more details about the staff and the release are forthcoming.

For those who don’t know, the Eminence in Shadow anime is a damn good adaptation of the source material that also gives a very different experience. And this is mostly attributed to the excellent skills of Kazuya.

There was a Twitter post by the director saying the team disbanded after the completion of Season 2, which was just an extension of Season 1’s production. Director Nakanishi’s position was left up in the air if he would return. This had many fans worried; however, it seems there isn’t anything to worry about. 

The movie will most likely cover the 2nd half of volume 4, a self-contained arc. It’s a wise decision, as the volume would have been too short for a season. Let’s hope Nakanishi creates the same magic with the movie!

About The Eminence in Shadow

The Eminence in Shadow, a manga by Daisuke Aizawa, started serialization in 2018. It is scheduled to receive an anime in October 2022. An anime film, titled ‘The Eminence in Shadow: Lost Echoes,’ was announced in December 2023.

Cid, the protagonist, is obsessed with becoming a hidden mastermind. Being reincarnated in an isekai world gives him the chance to act on his wishes and build up his power beyond the notice of people.

After rescuing an elf, he forms a squad who are supposed to fight the Diabolos cult which is just a figment of his imagination. However, the cult turns out to be true and now he actually has an enemy to face.
