In the trailer, Cid talks about how an assassin has been seen in the capital lately and he’s impersonating Shadow. Cid speculates on the true identity of this imposter and believes it must be someone who is short-tempered, hyper, and a bit two-faced. Someone comes to Cid’s mind, but who? Could he be thinking of Alexia?

What is the plot of Eminence in Shadow?

Great heroes and diabolical villains are the types of imaginary characters people dream of being, but not Cid Kagenou. He longs to become the true mastermind behind it all, pulling the strings, and having his machinations drive the entire story. In his previous life in modern-day Japan, he was not able to achieve his goals. But now, he’s been reborn into a world of magic, and is determined to show the true eminence of shadow!

Cid pretends to be an average mob character (minor character) and creates a fake organization, which he names Shadow Garden. Armed with his overactive imagination, Cid makes up a whole backstory about an evil cult lurking in the shadows that needs to be taken down and starts to recruit members for the cause.

Interestingly enough, these imaginary adversaries turn out to be the real deal and call themselves the Diabolos Cult. Only Cid knows the truth – that everything was supposed to be a joke, and that their organization is fake. But if a fake organization manages to save the world from an evil cult is it really so imaginary?

Where can I read the light novel series or manga?
