In The Eminence in Shadow, an engrossing anime series, a little kid named Cid Kageno aspires to grow up to be a mastermind and conquer the world from the shadows. His life is cut short when he is killed by a truck while training, but his story takes an unusual turn when he is reborn in a fantastical world as the character Shadow.
Season 2 of The Eminence In Shadow will premiere on
Season 2 of The Eminence in Shadow has not been given a premiere date as of yet. The rights to broadcast the season, however, were announced to have been purchased by HIDIVE in April 2023, so expect it to be available on the service later that year.
This suggests that the premiere of the series will take place in the summer or fall of 2023, albeit at this time, no other details are known.
Season 2 of The Eminence in Shadow: What to Expect
Season 2 of The Eminence in Shadow will feature a trip to the Lawless City accompanied by Cid and the Shadow Garden. Season 2 of the anime will adapt the third volume of the light novel series, and the plot summary is as follows:
Kageno Minoru, a Japanese high school student with a fixation on being a superhero, dies in a car crash and is reborn in a fantasy world as the hero Cid Kageno in Season 1. Cid uses the knowledge and abilities he gained in his past life to become the strongest person in the world, but he keeps his true identity a secret.
While this is going on, Cid uses a made-up myth about the diabolical Cult of Diabolos to rescue a group of Elf ladies from a disfiguring curse and then trains them to be terrible fighters. When the girls leave on their own journey to destroy the Cult and establish the Shadow Garden gang, Cid thinks they’re just tired of his infantile antics, but in reality, they’ve discovered the Cult’s existence and are determined to destroy it.
In the remaining episodes, Cid essentially plays a massive game, switching between his outstanding impressions of “mob” characters and those of Shadow, his Eminence in Shadow alter ego. Meanwhile, Cid is caught up in the Shadow Garden’s efforts to eradicate the Cult of Diabolos, but he has only a dim idea of what’s really going on.
On the eve of the fabled Red Moon event, Cid and his sister Claire will embark on an expedition with the Magic Swordsmen Association to vanquish the Blood Queen in the Lawless City. He’ll rally the Shadow Garden’s support to take on the Lawless City’s most formidable rulers, including the Blood Queen, Juggernaut, and Yukime.
