Confirmation and Returning Staff
In a recent live stream, the creators confirmed that all previous staff members, including Makoto Lino, Kanichi Katou, Kazuya Nakanishi, and Nexus, will return for season 2. The anime’s anticipated return was expected since it is based on the original light novel series by Daisuke Aizawa.
It was previously reported by reliable sources on Twitter that the second season will consist of 12 episodes, although the official episode count has not been confirmed yet. This news may be disappointing to fans since the first season consisted of 20 episodes.
About The Eminence In Shadow
The first season of the anime premiered in October 2022, and it ended on February 15.
HIDIVE is streaming the anime.
HIDIVE describes the story:
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!
