The anime’s first season premiered from October 2022 to February 15. HIDIVE described the story as follows:
Some people aren’t suited to playing a flashy, in-your-face hero or a vile, mustache-twirling villain with excessive panache. Instead, they operate in the shadows and pull the strings of society with wit and intelligence. That’s the role Cid wanted to play when he was teleported to another world. Cid spins a yarn or three and becomes the unlikely leader of the underground Shadow Garden organization fighting against a menacing cult (which he completely made up). However, there’s one thing that even his wild imagination can’t see: the cult he created actually exists, and they’re unhappy that the power of his imagination has gotten in the way. their evil plan!
The light novel and manga adaptation of “The Eminence in Shadow” are licensed by Yen Press.
