The Eminence in Shadow Season 2

The anime’s inaugural season debuted in October 2022 and concluded on February 15th.

Not everyone is cut out for the flamboyant, attention-grabbing hero or the devious, mustache-twirling villain who commands attention. Instead, some excel in the shadows, manipulating society with their wit and cunning. This is the role Cid aspires to when he is mysteriously transported to another world. With his adept storytelling skills, Cid emerges as the unexpected leader of the covert Shadow Garden organization, opposing a menacing cult (which he had completely fabricated). However, there’s an unforeseen twist that even his vivid imagination failed to anticipate: the cult he conjured up actually exists, and they are infuriated that his power trip has disrupted their wicked agenda!

Kazuya Nakanishi, known for his work as the chief animation director on Darwin’s Game, takes the helm as the director for the upcoming anime at Nexus, which previously worked on projects like Darwin’s Game and Granbelm. Makoto Iino, acclaimed for adapting Tōzai’s original character designs for animation in series such as Suppose a Kid From the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town and Demon Lord, Retry!, brings their artistic prowess to breathe life into the characters.

The first volume hit the shelves in November 2018. In December of the same year, Anri Sakano began the manga adaptation, which was featured in Kadokawa’s Comp Ace magazine.
