The Eminence in Shadow Teases Us with Season 2 Trailer

The first season of The Eminence in Shadow anime (a.k.a. Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute! in Japanese) concluded on February 15. The anime did a livestream, which appeared to just be about marking the final episode, but it also slipped in a big reveal: there will be a second season.

This short, bloody trailer for the second season was released:

It hints that the second season will be coming soon, but does not offer up a specific date. It also confirmed that the main staff would be back for the second season. It’s being made at Nexus, with Kazuya Nakanishi helming the project as the director. The task of overseeing series scripts goes to Kanichi Katou, who is known for working on Black Clover. The anime’s music is composed by Kenichiro Suehiro of Shadows House, Cells at Work! and more.

In America, the anime is being streamed by HIVIDE, which gave this description for its plot:

“Some people just aren’t suited to playing the part of the flashy, in-your-face hero or the dastardly, mustache-twirling villain with larger-than-life panache. Instead, they operate in the shadows and pull the strings of society through wit and cleverness. That’s the role Cid wants to play when he’s transported to another world. Cid spins a yarn or three and becomes the unlikely leader of the underground Shadow Garden organization that fights against a menacing cult (which he totally made up). However, there’s a catch even his wild imagination didn’t see coming: the cult he concocted actually exists, and they’re beyond displeased that his power fantasy just got in the way of their evil plans!”

The franchise started out as a light novel series and also has received a manga adaptation, both of which are published in America by Yen Press.
