The Eminence in Shadow plotline

The plot of The Eminence in Shadow revolves around a boy living in contemporary Japan who aspires to become a shadow-based mastermind. However, his dreams are cut short when he is killed during training when he is struck by a truck. He is then reincarnated into a fantasy world as Cid Kagenou, where he adopts a plain and unremarkable appearance to avoid attracting attention while pursuing his goal of shadow manipulation.


One day, Cid encounters an elfin girl suffering from a mysterious illness, and he can heal her. Cid invents the story that the Cult of Diablos secretly rules the world and that his organization, “Shadow Garden,” is the only group capable of fighting them. Alpha joins Cid’s organization and helps him recruit new members. However, Cid’s fabricated story proves accurate, and he is unwittingly drawn into a complex power struggle. Cid continues to fight against the Cult of Diablos under the alias “Shadow,” unaware of the truth behind his participation in the conflict.
