Being the mastermind who pulls strings from the dark is far more thrilling than being the hero or villain who fights in the limelight. At least that’s what Cid Kagenou, the protagonist of The Eminence in Shadow series, thinks.
His delusional fantasies turn into reality when he gets reborn in an isekai world, where he forms his own secret organization to fight the evils secretly.
Good news for you if you are already fascinated by this isekai storyline, we may see this light novel series on the anime silver screen soon.
The official Twitter account for the Tsutaya shop announced that The Eminence in Shadow light novel series has an anime adaptation under production.
The long-awaited new issue is on sale! The “The Eminence in Shadow” light novel series will receive an anime adaptation.
4 novels, 5 manga, and 2 volumes will be released at the same time this weekend!Twitter Translation, English Translate
The announcement also revealed that a new novel volume, manga volume, and a spinoff manga will be out this week. The books have already arrived in the stores and will be available for sale from Friday.
[Book arrival information ③] The novel “The Eminence in Shadow 04” has arrived!!Twitter Translation, English Translate
The protagonist is portrayed as a pathologically narcissistic teenager who convinces an army of female elves to eradicate the forces of darkness.
In other words, he is forming his own harem of beautiful assassins that poses a threat to even the over-powered soldiers and a demon attempting resurrection.
The adolescent male power fantasy storyline tactfully combines grisly violence with ecchi humour. Its fast-paced story, character archetypes and overly powered weapons mimic gaming life for a lark.
The spinoff manga titled “The Eminence in Shadow – Shadow Side Story,” will feature the adorable chibi avatars of the Shadow Garden members, thereby focussing more on the comedy elements.
The hilarious spoof of the secret super-villain squad will definitely crack you up.
Coming to the upcoming anime adaptation, no expected release date or trailer has been revealed so far.
I have a gut feeling that it will turn out to be a chivalrous version of Redo of Healer, which focuses more on things like worldbuilding and character development.
